Sonia’s first picnic
“Sonia, we are meeting Heidi and Tiffany for PICNIC!” said mama.
Sonia eyes widen with excitement!!!
She ran to her cubby, dragged her school bag, and whisked to the door without even saying goodbye to her teacher and friends. I had to remind her to say ‘bye bye’ to them. This girl ahh!!! No manners.
She started asking for jiejie and meimei, the minute we left her school, and this went on until we reached home.
“Sonia, go change your clothes or else we won’t be going for the picnic!!!” then I attempted to close the door.
“Mummy, no! No close door. Mummy, no! No, no, no…” exclaimed Sonia.
I guessed, she was afraid we wouldn’t be going out if I were to lock the door. Silly girl!
Anyway, she dashed into the room and asked for help as she struggled to remove her clothes.
We got changed quickly and, again, she dashed out of the room to the door. She was REALLY EXCITED to play with the girls.
I asked Sonia and Heidi to take a picture together.
What I was expecting: To repeat myself fifty times, drag them together, and snap twenty pictures of them, hoping at least one of which looks decent.
What actually happened: Sonia surprised me by taking the initiative to stand beside jiejie and smile at the camera. Sweet!
It was time well spent. Sonia enjoyed herself and I hope the girls enjoyed themselves too!
