Sara is going to turn 11 this coming 4th december.
She has put this list on my computer called "things I want for my birthday " or something like that. No 1- Rabbit. No 2 Baby Alive
Tsk this baby alive thing....last year she also asked for it. Her auntie aida promised to get it for her. I thought..wah sporting lah Aida ni, benda tu mahal oit.. They finally went shopping for it...and when Aida came home with Sara she managed to talk her out of it.
And this year, it resurfaced!!! Aiyoooo...
You know what "Baby Alive" is right? It's a doll that can talk and pee and poo . It costs, from nearly a hundred bucks to RM260 kot. That does not include the price of its mega expensive diapers. Sister inlaw has one and a couple of months out of the box, it does not look like it costs what it costs ok.
And any way Sara should be way way too old for BabyAlive.
Yesterday we went to Alamanda to celebrate BIL's birthday and also fulfill my girls' demand for clothes. ("We don't shop lah mummy....!!) Ohmygawd I have girls I forgot I have to shop like every MONTH. We were there,without the chiken px inflicted girl, and we decided to make up for it by buying her presents.
I told the kids that they can choose a present each and I'll pay for it lah.
Johan chose a denim wallet. Nice. Her sister likes blue, he said. Dahlia chose a scrapbook . Nadine has no idea. Sophia came carrying a Baby Alive and said "sara wants this, mummy". to prove a point, she called Sara and Sara said yes, she'd like one. daddy said NO. Nadine said NO. I said...alahhh bagi lah if not she will continue to pester us next year when she REALLY will be too old for it. And I remember my one unfulfilled wish when I was small- I wanted a DOLLHOUSE. Takdapat puuuunnnn.. sampai sekarang terkenang kenang heh heh.
So I said to hubby- Beli lahhhh sekali sekala je ....and lepas ni dia tak mintak dah...
Hubby I said- ok lah. then we went to pay, Then hubby said- yang murah sikit takda ke? and we started to look at the range- ada yang boleh pee tak leh poo. (to me, good thing that). Sophia called Sara "Sara,do you want the Baby Alive with the toilet?"
Hmph jawapan mestilah Yes lah kan. So mummy took over "Sara, kat sini macam macam baby alive ada...you nak wets and wiggles tak?"
Sophia took back the phone "OR do you want the one with the toilet?"
Hmmmm we are smelling something very fishy.Sara ke yang ndak awak yang ndak Sophia oi?? Heh heh. Sara jawab- "Iwant the one that can do a lot"
Ok lah Baby Blardie Alive yang do both business it is then. nak sejukkan hati hubby I told him, it's a lot cheaper than having the real one!
So we went back armed with loads of parcels and showed them to her and then told her that we cannot give to her until her birthday proper!
She did beam a lot and was furiously writing in her diary later on that night (I know lah)
I guess she's happy! I am either (a)a cheapskate parent or (b) spoils them .
Believe it or not I am rewatching Winter Sonata.. ee geram betul I dengan si Yujin tu lah... she really was a wutz wasn't she? and...
