These days, Elyssa likes to say stuff like : “I WISH I have a frozen doll”, “I WISH I can go to Genting”. “I wish this ……” I wish I that…..”
Cos she knows if she starts it with “I WANT …….” then mummy starts talking about “you cannot have everything you want, mummy daddy works hard for the money, some children don’t even have a portion of what you have bla bla bla”
I tried this lecture once when she said “I WISH …..” and her immediate response was “ but Mummy, I just said I WISH, I didn’t say I WANT. Its something I wish I can have only but it doesn’t mean I want you to buy for me” and she said it with a sweet smile.
Oh boy, oh boy! I just couldn’t help smiling. She found a way to tell me what she actually wants without actually saying she it!
And her strategy kinda worked. I just bought a Frozen Elsa doll online for her last night cos I know how much she really wants err…..wishes for it. J
