A trip to the supermarket with the brat usually entails quite a few scenario. It’s not always bad.. but you see .. the “ang moh” sometimes forgets that the brat is a kid.. and a 5.5 yrs old at that. He forgets that kids whine and gets bored easily too. Sometimes she wants to sit on the shopping cart .. and not want to walk. .and at other times.. she insist on going into a cart like that.. and pretends she is driving. It’s alright if she stays inside these cart.. but of course, you can’t really expect that right..?
Mostly, she has a lot of questions to asked.. and also a lot of things she wants to touch as well. At other times, she would cooperate and post for the camera. Despite all her brattiness.. you can be sure.. that you will never hear my brat roll on the floor and stamp on stuff.. or break someone things.. just because she didn’t get what she wants. We are not unreasonable parents.. but we don’t cultivate bad habits.. like buying things so they will keep quiet. As much as possible.. we tell her she is not getting any toys.. and then there is no argument.
Now having said all that.. please remember never to buy your kid a toy before doing your grocery shopping .. because as soon as he/she gets her toy.. she would miraculously have knee injuries.. or tummy ache. She wants to go home.. and play with her toys. More later..
