Sweet Talker

JE told me in the evening that she wants bread. She was asking for RT pastry bread. Since there were just only the two of us at home, I brought her there to buy her “RT bread. sugar bread” (Her word. Sugar bread , because those buns are sweet and dusted with sugar on the top)

After I bought it for her, she asked if she can eat in the car. I helped her to open the packaging . When I handed it to her , immediately she said “Thank you mummy” , which is something we expected the kids say. She said it voluntarily without me prompting her to. What surprised me was while munching on the bread , she said ” Thank you mummy for buying my RT bread for me” ooh.. .that’s just so sweet.  Her brother and sisters usually thank me from the things that I do for them . They thank me for cooking, they thank me for buying them food, they thank me for bringing them out. JE usually picks up from them and copy them thanking me. But today, there’s no one for her to copy and imitate and she still remembers to thank me. That is just the sweetest gesture.

Note: JL is also another sweet girl that shows her gratitude. On weekends that we go back to my parent’s place, and if my mum does cook dinner for us, we eats in. JL without any prompting will thank my mum for cooking dinner for us. She goes “Thank you porpor for cooking dinner. It is so yummy” That totally melts my mum’s heart.
