Just Jot It January 5th: 2016

This post is about this little conversation I had with my children, Joyce and Kate, yesterday.

(Note: J comes before K, so Joyce is older than Kate. πŸ˜€ )

Joyce: Did you see the doctor today, mommy?

Me: Yup!

Joyce: What did the doctor say?

Me: Have to abstain from eating certain food –

Joyce: I know… I know… no oily or fried food, right?

Me: Not only those. No chicken or eggs. Fish… a little bit.

(their eyes widen…)

Joyce: But the only types of meat you eat are chicken and fish… so you’ll become a vegetarian… giggling

Kate: No! Mommy will eat plain rice and plain porridge… rolling-smiley

Me: I actually bought 3 bottles of crispy chilli recently… planning to eat that with plain rice. But… the doctor said… No chilli or spicy food…

(they gasped…)

Kate: She wants your life, mommy! 😨How are you going to survive without chilli? surprised

Me: No choice… I just have to bear with it.

They whispered to each other. secret

Kate: Mommy, you know we love you very much right?

Me: Yes…?

Kate: You can have ALL the broccoli and vegetables. We’ll eat the meat for you.

Me: That’s very nice of you. But… you still have to eat them.

(Kate pouted 😦 and whispered to Joyce again. Sometimes, they whispered so loud that I can even hear… πŸ˜€ )

Joyce: What else?

Me: No heaty food as usual.

Kate: Oh! Then what will happen to the chocolates? That’s really bad!

Joyce: No choice… we’ll have to help you finish ALL the chocolates. Not we want to… but we have to! wink

Joyce to Kate: Let’s count the number of Ferrero Rocher and split equally.

Kate took the tray of Rochers and showed it to Joyce.


Joyce: Did you eat them?

Kate: Only 1!

Joyce: So did I! (she turned to me) Mommy, you ate half the tray of Rochers?!

Me (sheepish grin): That was before I see the doctor. πŸ˜€

    1. Most children don’t like vegetables, they love fish and chips! LOL! πŸ˜„ Because I control their intake of sugary food, I feel bad for them. (I ate their chocolates while their dad ate their ice cream. πŸ˜‚) Now (for time being… LOL! ) no one will fight with them for chocolates. πŸ˜„


      1. Oh! They are fearful of the latter. LOL. πŸ˜„ They made such a big fuss when their baby teeth dropped. Can’t imagine how they will react if the dentist needs to pull their teeth! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


      2. Exactly! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Have you tried that? It’s really fun though! I used to do that too… LOL! Like mother. like daughter, I guess! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


I'd love to hear from you...
