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. 😀 )
Joyce: Did you see the doctor today, mommy?
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…)
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…
Me: No choice… I just have to bear with it.
Kate: Mommy, you know we love you very much right?
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… 😀 )
Joyce: What else?
Me: No heaty food as usual.
Kate: Oh! Then what will happen to the chocolates? That’s really bad!
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.
Kate: ONLY HALF LEFT!!! 😨
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. 😀
