Conversations with Ryan boy…

1)
I have prohibited him from using ‘bad’ words such as ‘die’, ‘stupid’, and of course no bad languages at home.
I can’t recall how it happened but I think we were in a conversation about saving water in the toilet. He claimed I was wasting water for allowing the water to run from the tap.

Ryan: Mommy, 你想死 ar?? (Nǐ xiǎng sǐ)
Mommy: Eh.. 你不能说死 (Nǐ bùnéng shuō sǐ)
Ryan: 不是 ah,我说你的头发想死 (Bù she, wǒ shuō nǐ de tóufǎ xiǎng sǐ)
Mommy: Huh…???

2)
Last week after I picked Ryan up from school, he said this to me in the car

Mommy : What did you do in school today?
Ryan: We learn and did some art and craft
Mommy: Oh, what craft did you make?
Ryan: I cannot tell
Mommy: Oh why cannot tell? No, must tell me NOW
Ryan: We made a card. It’s for Mother’s Day
Mommy: Oooo….
Ryan: But you don’t tell Teacher okay… It’s a surprise (his voice sounded a little disappointed)
Mommy: (Not wanting to upset him) Don’t worry. It’s still a surprise right because I still do not know how the card looks like
Ryan: (need assurance) So it’s still a surprise? Because you don’t know yet
Mommy: Yes… my dear.

Edit to add: This is how the card looks like

3)
During the time when I had tonsil stone

Ryan: Mommy.. does dream come true?
Mommy: You mean ‘wish’?
Ryan: Yes
Mommy: It depends what you wished for
Ryan: O-o-o
Mommy: Why? What wish did you make? (At the back of my mind, I was expecting him to say toys, more play time, etc)
Ryan: Mommy… I wish that you will recover fast. You will be healthy always
(I have been scaring him that I suffered from tonsil stone because he made me angry when he misbehave)
Mommy : If you are only allowed one wish, would you wish for more toys or for mommy to get well soon?
Ryan: How about both?
Mommy: No.. choose one only
Ryan: Mommy get well soon
Mommy: *happy and contented*….. (nice.. he normally won’t give up his toys for anything)

Mommy, you still love me?

@ 4 years 6 months 3 days

Some conversations Ryan and I had.

This conversation happened after I scolded him for misbehaving.

Ryan: Mommy why you scold me?

Mommy: Mommy scolded you because mommy loves you, mommy cares about you. If I don’t love you, I won’t bother. I’ll let you hurt yourself, let you misbehave.

Ryan: You scolded me because you love me?

Mommy: Of course. You don’t see mommy scold ‘friend yyy’ or ‘friend xxx’ do you?

Ryan: Only their mommy will scold them?

Mommy: yes….

So these days when he gets upset after being reprimanded, he would come up to me and ask:

Ryan: Mommy, you love me or not?

Mommy: Of course

Ryan: You scold me because you love me?

Mommy: Yes baby

Ryan: I want mommy sayang

Mommy: Okay okay (hug)

Yes, Ryan still wants mommy to hug whenever he gets upset. He still like to wipe his tears on mommy’s shirt because he could quiet down.

Ryan: (wail… wail … wail after being scoled)

Ryan: I want mommy sayang (wail wail wail)

Mommy: Keep quiet first or else mommy won’t sayang

Ryan: I can’t… I can’t keep quiet. I’m too sad. I want mommy to sayang while I’m crying. I want mommy to sayang with my tears

Mommy: Ok Ok (hug)

Ryan: See my tears mommy.. see my tears on mommy’s shirt? (smile right away)

Mommy: O-O-Oooo
