Stubborn Boy

CE is a very stubborn boy. When he does something wrong like hitting jie jie/CH kor kor or spoiling something, he won't say "Sorry" no matter how we coax him. Even whacking him doesn't work. He'll just shake his head if we keep asking him to apologise.

Just now while washing him up in the bathroom, the shower head suddenly turned over and I got partially wet - my face, spectacles and right sleeve were wet. It was not his fault at all. Anyway I said, "Look boy, Mommy's all wet already." And he surprised me by saying "Sorry Mommy" when I was wiping him dry. He even wanted to wipe my face and spectacles with his towel. Awww... he can be really sweet if he wants to.

During bedtime, he's back to his stubborn self again. I asked him to say "Good night" but he refused. I threatened not to hug him, and hug jie jie instead. He gave me a fake cry. :-| I just let him be. After awhile, when he was a bit stoned, I prompted him again with "Good" and he whispered back "night". :-) Yup, that's my stubborn li'l boy.

Kids really have a mind of their own. Sometimes we adults won't understand them. I love the last phrase best when u said Good and he said Night...very funny, LOL! (bet it was said reluctantly? he he)

Hi Slavemom, thats what I call Rebel without a cause...you've got a James Dean there, ha ha.
But he's a good actor, as he just wants some manjah, but loves and adores you.
Hey! Which son doesn't adore his mother? I have not met him yet, ha ha.
Next time wear your swimsuit, ha ha.
Just kidding.
You have a beautiful Sunday, Lee.
