He can if he wants to

It was Saturday. I was tired. I decided to go upstairs for a nap.
Mummy asked me to take boyboy along coz he had not slept the whole day.
So, I walked with him up the stairs and into the room.
Lay down with him and talked to him.
When I stopped talking, boyboy looked at me.
Got down from the bed and walked to the door.
Indicating to me that he wanted OUT.
He walked back to me to take my hand and tried to pull me to the door.
I tugged my hand under me and told him:
"Mummy is tired. Mummy want to oi-oi."
"Boyboy come oi-oi with mummy."
He tried to look for my hand to pull me to the door.
After several attempts and a few fuss-es, I told him:
"You call me 'Mummy', and I will take you down."
(I know he can call mum-my but just refuses to)
He looked at me and in the sweetest voice ever calls me:
"Mum-my, mum-my."

Sigh....so there goes my afternoon nap.
And again I know my son can if he wants to....just he doesn't want to.

On another note, Aunty Cecilia, his nanny is "Aun Ceci" ! hahaha....
At least he calls her!

Popo, kungkung, Ah Ma and Ah Kung are still waiting for him to call them!

Aaaawww...how sweet :)

Our child calling us Mommy is always music to our ears...

JLow said...

Sweet!

We give in so easily to these simple pleasures.. then they know it and start to exploit it!

A gift from God said...

Enjoy every one of these little simple pleasures... :) even if we lose some precious sleep...

mumsgather said...

Yeah! Hip. Hip. Hurrah! A priceless moment!

Angeline said...

what about PaPa/ BaBa? called already?

Ann said...

Darren's mummy - yeah, I read your post. But you know Darrenis a very smart boy when it comes to instructions and following. This "mummy" that I heard I think I may not hear as often as I wish!

PN - yeah...but if only he doesn't do it only when I lock him up in the bedroom and he desperately wants to go out! LOL...

Jlow - for now, I can say "exploit away!" :)

Florence - hahaha.....well, I think I would not be as thrilled if he called "mummy" at 2 am. But you are right....kids are worth every waking sleeping hour.

Mumsgather - yeah...priceless indeed. And I do not hope for it to be just one moment. As of now, I am "nana" once again!

Angeline - he called "Daddy" a long time ago! He calls very well when he wants something urgently from us! For daddy it is the steering wheel!
