I remember when I was a child, I thought to myself, how nice if I am 10 now. And when I was 10, I thought how nice it would be if I'm 16. And when I was 16, I can't wait to be an adult and go to work (so I don't have to study). And when you finally become an adult, you wish you were a kid again! Such is the irony of life.
And I now see this in SW as well, she likes to do "pretend play" and once, Anna (who is the co-ordinator of the playgroup and also has 2 kids going to the same kindy as SW) told me that she saw SW & her girl-friends playing in their kindy classroom stuffing dolls in their shirts and being a "mummy"! We had a good laugh about it. They know about "the bun in the oven" because there are a few mummies at kindy who were/are pregnant.
Then few nights ago, as I was preparing to go to bed, I went into the room to have a peek at her. I saw her fast asleep..... with her dolls (Makka-paka & Iggle-piggle) stuffed in her shirt! She must have been pretending before she went to sleep and fell asleep without taking them out. I roared with laughter and summoned Meng to have a look. She cracks us up!
