Things My Kid Says #10

Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope it's not too late to greet you all with this! I was MIA again because I was very busy and just got back from hometown last week.

Speaking of 2018, I just realized that this year is Naomi's last year in the Kindergarten... This means she is going to level up to Primary 1 next year!!! How time flies.

My baby girl is going to be a Primary School student in no time. I am both happy and sad with this huge milestone. Admittedly, I am mostly sad because going to Primary School means Naomi has to arrive to school before 7am (That's super duper early, man! Mr. Sun does not even rise yet by that time in this part of Malaysia where we live!), will have limited school holidays and the both of us need to be more serious in coping up with her studies. From this statement, I am sure everyone would agree I definitely don't fall into Tiger Mum category. LOL.

4 January 2018: Big girl already.

Anyway, referring to the original title of this post which is about creating records of my funny conversations with my 5yo:

I Hate Carrot

Few nights ago, I saw Naomi was playing with a baby doll (of which she also put a diaper on the doll's bottom using her old newborn napkin and cherry hair clip) in the living room.

She was pretending to feed the doll on the doll's baby chair (yep, her doll has a mini baby chair!) with some apple plush toys from IKEA that she placed on a pink plastic saucer.

I joined in her pretend play.

💁: Naomi, feed the 'baby girl' with the carrots here. *handed her the carrots plush toy to her*.
👧: No, Mommy. No! The baby eats apples. *pushed the carrots plush toy away*.
💁: Why?
👧: Because carrots are yucky!
💁: What? No. Carrots are yummy. Carrots are good for your eyes.
👧: No! Carrots are for rabbits!
💁: LOL. Not really. We can eat carrots too. Carrots are not only for rabbits to eat.
👧: Sssh!!! No. Mommy stop. *then proceeded to feed her doll with apple plush toys again*

Truth is, my veggie and fruit lover daughter has begun to hate carrots of late. Normally, she would eat any kind of veggies that I present on her meals. However, I don't know why she always asks us to remove carrots from her food every-time she sees this orange colored root vegetable on her plate these past few months. I have fed her with carrots since she was a baby and okay with eating carrots for years but recently, she decided to hate carrots out of the blue.

Anyway, I purposely handed her the carrots plush toy to Naomi when she was playing with her doll few nights ago as an attempt to make her like eating carrots again.

Obviously, I failed miserably and need to come up with other strategies.
