The Young One
Only the cutest humans get angpows from me. This one, however, kept trying to return her angpow because in her world view, it came out of my purse and therefore it belonged to me.
I kept putting the angpow right back into her little hands. After a while, she gave up the tussle and passed it to her Mommy. Finally!
I've learnt the routine of this little girl. We can take her out anywhere and she'll be absolutely good-natured about it. But come 4 - 4.30pm, she'll need a nap before she turns cranky. A good hour's nap is sufficient to rejuvenate her. We've timed our outings as such. Not a hassle at all. Fits our schedules too. Then we can rest at home before the evening activities. The nap gives us time to thaw the kurau for her dinner.
I'm amused that she has recognizes our flat and the bed. From clinging on to her Mommy during her first visit, she's now running about and clambers on to the bed willingly to nap. She also bullies my bears. She has learnt to pick her favorite bears to traumatize. As much as she's Mommy's girl, she now doesn't protest too loudly when I pick her up once in a while.
What a joy and a privilege to watch the little girl grow from an infant to a rosy-cheeked toddler! Alot of my contact with her is due to her gutsy Mommy who's always up for new experiences and brings her out all the time. She's one of the most unfussy Mommies around who never sees her baby as an impediment to her social life. If anything, I think both has been successfully integrated. I'm terribly glad that this is one friend I haven't lost contact with due to her having a youngling.
