On mummy's baking skills when I offered to bake her cake for this year's birthday,
"I think it's a little bit tricky for you, Mummy. Let Grandma make the cake ok?"
On what she wanted to be when she grows up,
A: When I grow up, I want to be an astronaut. I will put on my suit and walk on space and ride the spaceship.
Me: Did you learn that at school?
A: No. Lily told me. (you know, her imaginary friend who apparently lives in Japan)
On not wanting to wear her tudung (scarf) to school,
"I like my curly hair, I don't wanna wear tudun. I'll wear it when I'm bigger ok? When I'm 4"
On why she cries when we arrive at school,
"Im a bit shy mummy. And a bit sad cos I miss you so much" (me cry!!!!)
On learning Malay,
"Mummy, Adoi means sakit (painful). That's what all my friends say when they 're hurt. Like this, ADOI!!" (with hand on her head)
On wanting more chocolates,
"mummy, I'm still hungry. See, my tummy's still grumbling"
On not finishing her meal
"I've had enough. I only have a small tummy"
On not wanting to go up the stairs
"Daddy!! my legs are hurting...help..." (err..like mummy jek)
On cutting her own hair,
"Don't worry mummy, my hair is still boingy. See??" (whilst showing her other bouncy curls in a boing boing movement)
On wanting to go to the toilet,
"Sakit perut! Sakit perut!"/ tummy ache (all the way to the toilet)
On tidying up after playtime
"Look what you've done little boy! Such a terrible mess!" (eh, Eli plak..)
On accidentally poo-poo'ing in her pants
"It's ok mummy, it's just an accident.."
On another of our poo-poo conversation,
"Mummy! I did lots of poo poo. A big one. It's the biggest one I've ever seen!!!
