She misses her cot
Just when I thought Zara is getting used to her bed, we had this conversation yesterday during bed time. Zara : *just out of the blue* "Kakak put the cot away already." Me : "No, Daddy put the cot away, in the other room." Zara : *pointing to her bed* "Mummy, throw the bed away" Me : *shocked!* "Why?" Zara : "The bed so slippery" (so untrue, but I guess she's just coming out with excuse) Me : "No, the bed is not slippery." Zara : "The cot is better. Throw the bed away. Zara want the cot." Me : "But Zara is already a jiejie (Chinese : Big sister). Cot is for babies, Zara is not a baby, but a jiejie now". Zara : ".... " Zara : "Mummy, Zara want go downstairs." Me : "It's bed time, why does Zara want to go downstairs." Zara : "Zara sleep downstairs." Me : "Downstairs got mosquitos and lizards at night, and Zara will be lonely if Zara sleep downstairs alone." Zara : *tears started rolling down* "Zara don't yike (like) the bed" Me : "Zara sleep on mummy's bed then, mummy sleep on Zara's bed. Ok?" Zara : "Zara want mummy hug hug to sleep." Me : "Ok, Zara sleep together with mummy then" So she slept on my side of the bed.
