Last nite, Sherilyn dropped a hard box of zig-saw puzzle onto my foot when I reprimanded her for taking it out from my drawer. Sherilyn has a habit of putting the pieces of puzzles into her mouth and throwing them everywhere and shoving them under my king-size bed and under my mattres and eventually losing them.
One side of the sharp-edged box landed on one of my toes and as I yelped out in pain, Alycia who was in her room playing dashed into my room and asked me what had happened. I told her that her mui mui had dropped a box on mummy’s foot and mummy is now in pain. As she saw me winced in pain, she darted back to her room and brought back a piece of mega block and pretended that it was a first-aid tape dispenser and started to put the imaginary plaster on my toe. When I saw Alycia pulling out the imaginary tape with the block, I just burst out laughing and asked her what she’s doing. Alycia then said “don’t move mummy, let me put plaster for you first”.
I was really touched by Alycia’s concern and wittines in handling first-aid situations like this. Alycia then said “don’t be sad mummy” and wah…. her words and actions were like water dousing off a raging fire in my heart. I gave her a big hug and kiss and said “thank you Alycia. mummy loves you” and wow… I can see Alycia’s face beeming with pride as her self-esteem inflates and her love tank filled to the brim with mummy’s love and hug.
It has been a long time anyone had touched me so deeply and made me laughed this hard. Sometimes, Alycia can really win and melt the coldest of heart.
