LOL things Tomato said


I can't remember exactly when, but while in the car, heading home, I asked my no.1 (Tomato), what have she been doing at Yi Yi's (the nanny) house. She said play (her usual answer).

Me : 有哭哭吗? (Did you cry?)
Tomato : 没有ler, 没有哭哭。(No ler,  I didn't cry)
Me : 真的吗??姨姨讲你一点一点就哭。 (Really? Cos yi yi mentioned to me you cry over petty things)
Tomato : 我没有哭哭!我笑笑 (I didn't cry, I smile) * and turns over to look at me and smiled*



Sometimes to con her to sleep *ahem*, I will show her some short clips about animals  on youtube. That night, I think we were watching a clip on elephants I think. But kids being kids, its never enough for them, and she saw a clip on spiders at the side menu when the clip ended. And demanded to watch it.

Me : Yucks!!!Comok 你要看spider??? (Yucks!!!! why do you want to watch spider????)
Tomato :我要看Yucks!!!我要看Yucks!!! (I want to watch YUCKS!!!I WANT TO WATCH YUCKSS!!)
-________________- *obviously she has mistaken the that spider is called Yucks.


This happened last night.

me : What do you think we should name your sibling?
Tomato : CHAI S## B##
Oink & Me : *@@!!!* WHAT??
Oink : Your sibling's sirname should be SIM, not CHAI, ok?

LOL *Note : CHAI S## B## is her best friend's name at school.

Bye-bye Chut chut!

We call pacifier Chut Chut (pronounced as choot choot).  It has been a worry for me because Tomato seem so addicted to it. We need to bring it out for outings, she can demand for it anytime anywhere. Deny her that, she will throw a tantrum.

But as fate have it, on the night of her 3rd birthday, she somehow misplaced her chut chut and we all can't find it. So she has to go to sleep without it. And oh boy, it was a loooonnngg night. She kept mumbled and whined in her sleep for it.

Daddy Oink found it the next day, and she was in such a bad mood after school, she cried the whole way from school to Grandma's house. Oink later cut the chut chut and give her, she was pacified but somehow may be the feel is different already and Oink told her now its broken, worms can go in 'x'. That trick somehow worked. And she pulled it out voluntarily. And said she doesn't want it anymore.

For that day onwards, her addiction to chut chut dropped significantly. The first few nights, she sometime wake up around 3am-4am, and will whine for it, and then remembered about the "worms" and stopped whine about it and go back to sleep.

And I am proud to say, for 11 days, she is chut-chut free! :)
