Yesterday, after fetching XJ from her ballet class, she requested for fried Hokkien Mee. Every time after her class, she will request for supper. Since she wanted to eat, her request was granted. As I was told by the elderly, if kids can eat, let them eat. They know their tummy better.
Back home, YX was delighted when I told him there was Hokkien Mee for supper. It was the kids' favourite. Each of them had a bowl of noodles before I asked them to brush their teeth and get ready for bed. It was already 8.30 pm.
As I was washing the dishes, hubby accompanied both kids to the room and get them to sleep. Minutes later, YX came down and requested for a cup of milk. XJ followed behind but she didn't want any milk. She merely accompanied her brother and at the same time, delaying her sleeping time. Kids ! When we want them to sleep early, they tried to dilly dally. When we tried to wakes them up in the early morning, they will complaint they are so tired and can't open their eyes !
I was surprised by YX's request since he had quite a big portion for his supper and did not expect he still needs milk before bedtime. I believed the noodles were not digested yet since he just had them not long ago ! So, I told him 'NO' as I was afraid he will gets bloated tummy. In fact, I was just LAZY to make milk for him as I was still busy washing the dishes and had piles of dirty laundry waiting for me ! How I wish, he can just goes to bed and don't disturb me while I was busy with my chores. Bad mummy *grin*
YX insisted that he wanted to drink and said he was still HUNGRY ! I tried to find excuses by not making the milk for him until XJ said " Mama, make for koko la ! He is so THIN. Drinking milk will makes him FAT ! "
I burst into laughter as I never expect XJ will said such words ! Reluctantly, I made the milk for him. He knows his tummy better !
