Zara sometimes gets a bit manja (Malay : need affections), and she will start complaining she has pain every where so that I'll kiss the pain away. Yesterday night was one of those times. While in bed, waiting for her to fall asleep. Zara : *turned to me* Mummy Me : *grogilly* Yes, Zara Zara : Eyes. Paink paink Me : *turned to look at her, in the dark trying to check her eyes* Zara's eyes pain pain? Zara : *whined and rub her eyes* eyes, paink paink. Me : *took her hands away* You don't rub your eyes! Let mummy check. *Checked and found nothing wrong* Never mind, Zara don't rub your eyes any more. Mummy kiss kiss. Muak *then turned the other to try to sleep* Zara : Mummy. Boh-dee paink paink. Me : *turned to her* Body pain pain now? Zara : *smiled and pointed ot her body* Paink paink. Me : (realised she's playing her 'manja' game) *kissed her tummy* Ok, mummy kiss kiss. Muak. Zara : *pointed to her elbow* Eh-boh paink paink Me : *kissed her elbow* Muak. Where else pain pain? Zara : *pointed to her knee* Knee paink paink Me : *kissed her knee* Muak. How come every where pain pain? Zara : *pointed to her bum* Beh-sike, bum bum paink paink Me : (never mind, this is a good time for her to name the body parts) *kissed her bum* Muak. Your armpit pain pain or not? Zara : *pointed to armpit* Ah-Pit paink paink *grinning* Me : *kissed her armpit* Muak. Your belly button pain pain? Zara : *stuck her finger into her belly button* Buh-ton paink paink Me : *kissed her belly button*. Muak. Some more? Zara : *pointed to her private part* Petpet paink paink *cheeky grin* Me : Eee. Petpet also pain pain? Ok ok, mummykiss. Muak. *Kiss her diaper* Zara : *pointed to her ear* Eeyer paink paink Me : *kissed her ear* Muak. Wah, every where pain pain huh? ... And it continued, kissed her chin, her mouth, her feet, her hands, her nose, her head, her hair... It's a bit like doing a revision on all the body parts she knows how to name. I have yet to teach her forehead, eye brow, shin, shoulder, but I guess we'll soon get there, if she has this 'pain attack' often enough.
