A Simple Call That Shows it All

kids talk

Kitkit called me during his school recess period today.

Kitkit: “Mummy, you remember I got Oral Exam today AFTER SCHOOL, right?”
Initially, I had forgotten that it was AFTER school, until Allan told me this morning before we brought the kids to school. OOOps!
Well, I just went “MM”, since I was told by Allan already.

Kitkit: “So you know I will be coming home later than usual, right?”
Me: “Yes. Did Papa give you extra money today? Since you are eating lunch on your own?”
Kitkit: “Don’t think so. I only saw 1 piece of $2 note and some coins.”
Me: “Maybe those coins are $1 coins.”
Kitkit: “Maybe, I didn’t check. But don’t worry, because REMEMBER? I always put extra money in my bag. Just in case.”
Me: “Yes.”

Kitkit: “Ok, so I’ll be home a bit later today.”
Me: “Ok, see you at home later.”
Kitkit: “Bye.”
Me: “Bye.”

Such a simple call, yet it shows how much Kitkit understands me.
He knows I am FORGETFUL.
He knows I will be worried.
Thus, he called to remind me…… to assure me.

Very soon, I think our roles will start to change…..it will be his turn to look after me, as he matures by the day.

Kids Talk: When I Die

kids talk

Kitkit was having his Chinese Tuition in the study room yesterday. While Binbin waited for his turn to come, which would be 1.5hours later, we played senseless games and had some cuddling time after draining our energy.

Lying on my queen size bed, cuddled together AS IF it was snowing…..

Me: “Binbin, when I die, will you miss me?”
Binbin: “Don’t say such things lah!”
and he started to CRY IMMEDIATELY!!!

Me: “Oh Bin! You are crying?!”
Binbin: “Ya lah! Makes me very sad.”
His head still buried in my upper right chest…sobbing

Me: “Please remember that I’d always loved you very very much. Will you remember?”
Binbin: “Yes. I will miss you very much. But is it true that once a person dies, he will forget everything?”
Me: “Maybe.”
Moving away from my upper right chest….clearly seeing his tearful face now…

As he wiped off the tears at the brim of his eye socket…
Binbin: “Mummy, your shirt all wet.”
Me: “Ya man! If tuition teacher comes out and sees this, she may think that I drooled!”
Binbin chuckled.

He leaned back onto my upper chest for few seconds, both enjoying the quiet moment…..
Then he dropped the bomb:
Binbin: “So after you died, can your phone be mine?”

*faint*

I guessed I need to state that in my WILL now.
*huge laugh*
