My baby just turned 3 yrs old this year. She is really so sweet and innocent. Ironically, she can make me angry, as well as make me laugh with all my heart. When I am really exhausted after work, I will give her a call to chat over the phone and when I hear her sweet voice, I will feel oh so refreshed all over again.
Due to the fact that I am working, I can only manage to bring her back home once a week and whenever we were on the bus, you can hear her chattering non-stop and this brings a smile to my face.
I remember there was once when she let her Daddy beat her when she misbehaved, and she cried so loudly till I felt the pain in my heart and I teared as well. She then just came over to hug me and the both of us cried together. What a memorable moment. She then used a piece of tissue to wipe away her tears, as well as gently help me wipe away mine.
I was so touched deep down in my heart. I felt that my tears were sweet. She said to me: “Mommy, you don’t cry. Baby will behave from now. Baby will be strong and protect Mommy. It’s my fault that Daddy scolded me, he was not wrong.”
You can’t imagine a mere 3 year old child saying such words to you. The maturity in her astounded me as I thought she sounded like an adult with her own thoughts.
