Stupid Mummy June 27, 2006

Posted by Zara's Mama in language, myself, trips, Zara.

Zara is angry I left her.

When I called her on Sunday, she chatted to me, ‘promised’ to be a good and brave girl. Say Hi and bye nicely.
When I called her on Monday, she came to the phone, said, “Zara play ball”, then quickly said bye and left.
When I called her this morning, she didn’t want to come to the phone, I could hear her shouting, “Don’t want mummy.”
“Don’t like mummy.”
“Stupid mummy XXXXX” (XXXXX being my name)

Tuyam told me the whole of yesterday, she has been mumbling to herself, “Stupid Mummy XXXXXX.”

Stupid is a word she picked up but I have taught her not to use, she never uses it when I’m around. She must be very angry with me for leaving her, using the word against me. *big sigh*

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On shopping and eating, I don’t find it so great here. I wanted to get shoes and clothes for Zara, but I have been shopping and couldn’t find much.

Food has also just been so so (even with local colleagues’ recommendation), the only nice food eaten so far is the roast goose… Aaaa, I would like to sink my teeth into another piece of the goose.

Yea, sometimes we can’t help it.. and when we get reactions like these it hurts us too. Sometimes after scolding Ivan and see him reacting to the scolding like hide his face, or walk away from me, I feel hurt and mostly tell myself off too.. but most times it can’t be helped. Just give Zara lots of hugs and kisses when you’re back, kids are very forgiving… it just goes to prove that she misses you tonnes!

2. Egghead - June 27, 2006

whoa! Zara really has quite a character hor! and she’s not afraid to express it! ๐Ÿ™‚

3. IMMomsDaughter - June 27, 2006

Oh dear, Zara must really miss you lots! Count the days and soon Mommy will be home ๐Ÿ™‚

4. Vien - June 27, 2006

Poor girl. She misses you so much. Don’t worry, she will be delighted to see you when you’re home.

5. Adrian & Alvan - June 27, 2006

Ooo…Zara must be very miss you then, and is hurt too when mummy heard this hor, never mind lah she will be delight to see you with her present and dont forget her ribena hor, keep Mummy promised ok,

6. may - June 27, 2006

I miss Zara’s Mama too!

7. geetha - June 27, 2006

Ooppss! She is feeling it already.. Don’t worry, she merajuk oni.. she will still run to you for a hug ๐Ÿ™‚

8. L B - June 27, 2006

sooner or later she will have to go thru this liao, huh? mummy won’t be there every time..

9. Jesslyn - June 27, 2006

aiyo…she so cute, keep repeating that sentence!

10. jazzmint - June 27, 2006

aiks…seems like she’s upset with Mommy. Better get her something when you come back hehehe…

Aiks, how come shopping not good leh? I thought got a lot of choices and cheaper than KL.

11. sesame - June 27, 2006

Oh dear…she’s really very sensitive for her age. But all should be well again when you get back. When are you going back?

Actually I love the food in HK. Yums!

12. Jason - June 27, 2006

Kesian little Zara… *ang gu gu*

13. Samm - June 28, 2006

Ahhhh, Gordon cant talk yet, so i definitely will not be “Stupid mummy” when i’m away having Malcolm, lolz.

And i want some goose too, non-organic also sapu.

14. YL - June 28, 2006

maybe when Zara promised to be good and brave while mummy is away, she did not read the fine print on the contract that it would involve so many days of no-mummy and hence the tantrums… ๆฏๅฅณๆฒกๆœ‰้š”ๅคœไป‡็š„ใ€‚ใ€‚ใ€‚dun worry lah… loctor yl prescribe a high dosage of smacking kisses, warm hugs and ample mummy-time. definite cure for tantrum-rashes… ๐Ÿ˜›

When the kids were younger they would go through the photo albums when the missus hit the road. Maybe that would help if it has not been tried yet.

You could always bring her some roast goose. It would certainly make mw happy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

16. See Fei - June 28, 2006

dont worry. seems you and your maid get along very well.

Z will resume her normal baby talk as soon as she sees her “stupid” mama…ang kuku ang kuku ๐Ÿ™‚

17. HMom - June 28, 2006

Children have a way of showing their unhappiness. When I was admitted to hospital for early labour, Harvynna ignored me when I came back and kept hitting me and saying’Dont want mummy’. They probably feel like we abandoned them. Poor things!

18. blurblur - June 28, 2006

Awww…Ahmeen must be feeling awful..*hugs* never mind, Zara miss you too much,that’s why she’s behaving this way. I’m sure she’ll come to you with lots of hugs and kisses when you’re back!:)

19. chanelwong - June 28, 2006

Zara really miss you a lot…Kids usually use the word ‘Don’t Want’ when they are upset….

20. domestic rat - June 28, 2006

Hmm… I can never get enough of HK food! The dim sum, the dessert shops, the roadside stalls, and the different restaurants!

21. ky - June 28, 2006

How long will you be away? I would say Zara’s behaviour is pretty good for mommy’s 1st trip (after having her). She must be wondering how come mommy dearest still not back. Try using the calendar to help her understand when she will be able to see you again and to expect you to be back.

Eu is always excited seeing me striking the day off and counting the days left on the father’s trips.

22. Sabrina - June 28, 2006

Zara is very very angry. Wat to do? Have to go for work.I wonder how Keith would react if I leave him for a few days.
Don’t forget her gifts from HK and her Ribena..So cute. So innocent…

23. Greenapple - June 28, 2006

sad sad Zara, and an even more sad mama …

hmmm, hopefully your trip will end soon so that zara can have her mum back.

24. King's wife - June 28, 2006

25. GG - June 29, 2006

27. khongfamily - June 29, 2006

She’s angry and yet she misses you too. Poor Zara!

28. Helen - June 29, 2006

32. irene - June 30, 2006

33. earthember - June 30, 2006

Sounded like Zara really missed you to the point of getting angry with you. You have to make it up to her when you get back.

34. crazymommy - July 1, 2006
