Pretending to Cry October 17, 2005

Posted by Zara's Mama in Zara.

I have been pretending to cry when Zara does something not to my liking for instance not wanting to eat the food I’d spent a lot of time cooking; pulling my hair; wriggling about when her diaper is changed.

I did that a few times to show her that I’m sad or upset.

One day last week, when I said, “If Zara yai-yai (naughty), then mummy will cry”. She started rubbing her eyes, and made the Uh-Uh-Uh sound, pretending to cry. Wow, such a copy cat, so good in imitating me.

She started ‘crying’ on cue. Asked her, “Show mummy how you cry”, she would start rubbing her eyes and ‘cry’.

After one week of asking her to do this repeatedly to ‘entertain’ us and family members, she got fed up. She stopped doing it now. When we asked her to show us how she cries, she’ll just look some where else. Pretended she didn’t hear us.

Here is a video capturing her doing this, but she would only do it for a short while, not wanting to repeat her performance.
