Hi peeps..... I've been missing from blogsphere lately. Was busy with something and will blog about it soon, hopefully.
Initially, I was planning to update my blog on next Monday but YX made me so angry yesterday night, that made me wanted to blog about it now. He is 8 this year and he is soooooooo STUBBORN !
Before bedtime, YX must drink a cup of MILO with oats. We were in the bedroom yesterday and I told him to follow me to the kitchen so I can make him the drink. No room service at my home. He obeyed and after finished his drink, it was only around 8.30pm. Since he had already finished his homework, I told him to sleep early. I wanted to wash the dishes and do the laundry, so I won't be going up so soon.
He insisted me to accompany him to the bedroom !
I told him I have things to do so he should go to the bedroom himself. XJ already slept at that time and hubby is in the bedroom. I don't see any problem why he can't go to the room himself.
Being stubborn, he insisted me to accompany him. I refused and he stubbornly sat at the staircase waiting for me. I was so angry and really wanted to smack him, but I told myself not to. I also tried to control myself not to shout at him like a mad woman, but seeing him 'challenging me', I rose my voice a little and asked him to go to the room by himself.
He still insisted and refused to move !
The 'angel' inside me told me to just accompany him up since it won't take more than 1 minute. He can sleep and I can continue with my chores. No fuss.
But the 'devil' inside me kept repeating in my head "Don't listen to him. Don't make it a habit. He is old enough to do it by himself".
I ignored him. I'm also as stubborn as him. He wasn't too pleased and was cranky and whining. Finally, hubby must had heard my shouting earlier, came down and once YX saw his father (meaning someone to accompany him to the bedroom), he quickly ran up to the room. Of course hubby nagged at him too.
About 30 minutes later (after I'd finished all my chores), I went up to my room and saw him already sleeping soundly. I knew he was already very tired but ................sigh.....I hope I can be more patience with him. I hope he is not that difficult to be deal with when he grows up one day. Breath in.......Breath out......
If this happened to you, will you be the angel or the devil ?
