So one night, I decided to speak to her about the issue before bed. "Laetitia, Mommy is very upset, you know." I said quite calmly. Laetitia looked up at me and said, "Mommy upset?... Because your cousin passed away?"
I was stunned, I didn't expect that reply. "Erm... yes... I am sad about that too but no, I am more upset when you don't behaving yourself."
I told her about how hurt I was when she said that she don't love me, especially when I had sacrificed so much for her and her baby brother. Then I got more emotional and tears started to flow.
Laetitia was speechless for a while and just stared at me. Then suddenly, she asked, "You want a tissue? I get you a tissue ok?"
I thought that was rather sweet, so I nodded my head and she dashed out of my room.
Then I heard her said excitedly at the top of her voice, "Kaka, Kaka, my Mommy cried. She is sad because her cousin passed away." Following that she went to Mr Hubby and told him, "Daddy, Mommy is sad you know. Mommy cried. You say sorry to her ok. I give her tissue."
At this point, I really don't know if I should laugh or cry. Laetitia, Laetitia, how am I going to do without you!
I am praying hard that the terrible two will be amazingly transformed into terrific three in another 2 month's time.
