Send my boy to school with er jie today...Its her first time coming along and mommy was so touched to see her taking such great care of her little brother...
You see, Er jie is a rather rough girl unlike da jie, who is more gentle with little ones..so mommy was very surprised to see her taking care of him and holding didi's hand from the very moment we step out of our apartment all the way till we reached the centre.
As I walked behind them in the car park, emotional tears just welled up in my eyes....It suddenly reminds me of a very sad scene I watch on TV back in the 90's where this little boy name BinBin ran away from home with the sister...(forgot for what reason..I think its to look for their mommy)
When we got to the centre, dropped the little boy off and began to walk out of the centre. She saw didi crying and started questioning my cruelty...
My girl (almost in tears): Why is didi crying? Why are we not going back to sayang him?
Me: Didi cries because he does not want to be separated with us but he will stop once we are gone.
My girl: Are you sure? (Still in doubt about mommy's cruelty)
Me: Yes, darling. You saw didi happy face on the computer, right? He enjoys school just like you. Just give him some more time.
My girl: Was I like that? Did you let me cried this way too?
Me (oh no..how to answer!) : Yes..but you got adjusted very fast. Only 1 week and you stop crying already. See, now you even beg to go school!
My girl: hmmm...(finally satisfied with assurance)
