Mummy's entry - how Rye Li got her handsome prince

How hubby got to be Rye Li’s handsome prince?

It all begun when hubby started reading books to Rye Li a long time back. All those princesses’ stories that contain the word “handsome prince”, he would paused after saying “handsome prince” and go “like papa”. And then he would also add “Papa handsome or not?” to only get a response from Rye Li “yes!”. Thus, the poor girl has been brainwashed her only handsome prince is her papa!

How has this affected her? Well, whenever you ask her who is her handsome prince, she will go “My papa!

Recently, when we were at our holiday at Perhentian island (will update on this when I have the time), we kept bumping into the same couple at the resort. And so happened one night, they were sitting next to our table at the restaurant. So the guy started a conversation with the girl….

Guy: What’s your name?
Rye Li: Pretty, pretty princess
Guy: *Laughing* If you’re pretty princess, then I’m Handsome Prince
Rye Li: No, my papa is my handsome prince!
Guy: If that is the case, then I’m Prince Charming
Rye Li: *Laughing*

The other day, we had a conversation about husbands and it lead to….

Mummy: Papa is my husband
Rye Li: No, papa is MY husband!
Mummy: How can papa be your husband? He’s your papa.
Rye Li: What about me? Who is going to be my husband?
Mummy: One day, you will meet your boyfriend and then you will marry him and only then he will be your husband.
Rye Li: I don’t want to marry my boyfriend, I want to marry a handsome prince like papa. I want to marry papa.
Mummy: You cannot marry your papa-la, papa is your papa.
Rye Li: *Still being stubborn* I want to marry papa, my handsome prince. I don’t want to marry my boyfriend.

*I need to record this conversation!*

So, men out there….if you want to have your little girl/s to have you in their minds forever, you know what to do now!
