Up until now, I still make calls for Mia’s bbsitter during working hours, checking up whether she had her milk, her lunch, did her poo and so on. Sometimes once, sometimes twice. Depends. Yesterday was non exceptional, only different is .. something happened to her. Well, she got into a small fight. Whatelse, berebut toys!
And knowing Mia, once she gets a hold of a toy (or not toy most of the time) , its hard for us to take it away. She’ll scream bloody murder if anyone attempt it! So yesterday, a boy (same age as her) tried grabbing it from her. Of course she refuses to give in. They fought and one end up crying. Who else, my daughter lor. She kena gigit from the boy, ..who also happened to be my friend’s son. I bet Mia cried out loud! as I can see the bruise, of the boy’s teeth marking on her right arm. Boleh tahan juga lah.
The bbsitter was telling me, it seems that the boy has a habit of biting ppl, who gets in his way. And by far, every baby in the house dah kena, and left Mia the only ‘survivor’, until yesterday’s mishap. So.. how do i feel? Seriously, I wasn’t mad nor am I upset. I know sooner or later, this thing bound to happen. Only, i never knew it’ll be at this age.. ingat sometime later in kindergarten ke. Oh well! Kids being kids. I won’t blame the boy, tho’ I Do wish the bbsitter should have handle the situation Before it happened, since the boy has the tendency of biting kids.
At the end of the conversation, I asked,”So did she finally gave in the toy to him?”, to which she replied, ” Not at all! She kept holding it tight!”. In which, quietly i said “That’s My Girl!!”. hehe. Later that night, the boy’s mother gave me a called, with non-stop apologizing to both of us. She felt really ashamed of her son’s behaviour, and of late she has been calling up other kids’ parents as well. Pity her too.
I believe no parent would want her kid to be bullied nor be the bullier. Hope Mia got toughen by this incident.
