Zara's Way, Zara Says
She likes to hold on to Mr Blue in the day as a comfort object.. But in the night, she will do away with Mr Blue, preferring the linen cloth instead. She says, "Daddy's cloth, Mummy's cloth (referring to our blankets), Zara's cloth" She saw Daddy working on our clogged drain pipe on Sunday. When the plumber came and worked on the problem, she pointed to the plumber and said, "like Daddy." She thinks all trucks are rubbish trucks. She says, "Rubbish Truck!" when she sees one and then fans her nose and says, "Smelly". She orders her meal. For breakfast Tuyam makes her oat, she will say, "put banana" or "put raisin", depending on what she wants. For lunch, she requests for "fish ball" or "bread and cheese". For dinner, she wants "steam fish and pork" (although we never cook pork at home and let her settle with fish). She requests to have us read her a book before bed time. "Read book book!" and then chooses her own book. "Crab book" (referring to my DK Visual Encyclopedia, she likes the pictures, especially on the living things) "Big book" (referring to her First 1000 Words Book) "Snake book" (referring to her Size Book, as there's a big snake on one of the pages) (her top 3 favourite) And on days she prefers a story to be told, "Maisy book" or "Mr Night book". She thinks mummy is her jukebox. "Mc Donald!" She looks at me and says. Asking me to sing the Old Mc Donald song. or "Bingo!" or "Baby" (and she would proceed to lie in my arms) referring to Rock A Bye Baby. She sometimes asks Tuyam to sing too, but Tuyam will be singing out of tune or forget the words, and Zara would say, "Kakak don't know one!"
