Follow

This morning baby woke up earlier than usual, so she managed to 'witness' her koko changing into his uniform. Baby said "koko mei mei" (beautiful). So I told her koko is going to school. She nodded her head. Then, she saw me changed and said "mama mei mei". And I told her I'm going to work. She nodded her head again.

Once we were at the door, baby suddenly ran to take her shoes and asked hubby to put on for her while saying "kai kai". Normally, baby will waves bye bye to us but this morning, she wanted to follow us instead. No choice (as time is running out), we left hurriedly while baby (being carried by MIL) still holding to her shoes protesting to go out. So sad to see her like that :(

This reminds me of my childhood time. Whenever my parents wanted to go somewhere, I will immediately put down everything and get ready to follow them. Unlike my brother, he will continues with his things and don't bother at all. Mum will called me (in hokkien) 'ai ter lor' (likes to follow). Even mum wanted to bring something to the neighbour (a few doors away), I will follow. Whenever mum goes to the mini market nearby to buy something, I will follow.

How about you? Are you those "ai ter lor" type when you are a child? Or maybe even now?

  8. Yes, it's so heartbreaking when they want to follow...but have to leave them at home to go to work or whatever. My daughter was with me all the time when we were not in school...and even now,so big already, she still loves to "follow" but not when the mum goes out... Hehehehehe!!!!

  16. "ai ter lor" is still better than the "beh leh koh" (tied to mom's apron string) remarks that i've heard given to my cousin. ;)
