They Want Water.

Getting into a cab: Miss: I want water. Rockstar: Oh yeah. Me too. Me: Hang on darlings there's lotsa water coolers at church. <pause> Miss: I want water. Rockstar: Me too. Me: Won't be long now. Miss: I want wa-TER. Rockstar: Me too. Me: You're kidding me, right? Miss: I want wa-TER. Rockstar: Me too. Me: What's with you guys, you know it's just a cab ride away. Miss: I want wa-TER. Rockstar: Me too. Me: Guys- Miss: I WANT- Me: STOPPIT. Rockstar: Me t - Me: STOPPIT. And (to Rockstar) what exactly is your problem today??? (He's not usually like this on his own) Me: We JUST left four cups of water on the table before we got into this taxi. I JUST ASKED you guys if you wanted to drink. In fact, I just asked you guys TO drink. In fact I asked you guys SEVERAL TIMES TO DRINK YOUR WATER. Now, we are going to church AND I DON'T EVEN FEEL VERY CHURCH-LIKE AND YOU KNOW THERE'S A GADZILLION WATER COOLERS IN CHURCH. AND. WE ARE ALMOST THERE. <silence><Miss looks out the window non-plussed><Rockstar sulks> <pause> Me: (To cabbie) Being a kid is hard isn't it, getting scolded by Mum. Cabbie: <snorts> Being a parent is harder. Good luck to you with both of them. And the whole they-want-water thing. <speeds off>. Now, that he mentioned it........ HANG ON. Q: Which of them do you think really wanted water? Cont'd below... - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - We go straight for the water supply. Rockstar drinks a good several cups (though that might be out of obligation haha). The Miss....... needs some reminding that she wanted water (and obviously she doesn't feel obliged. But she does like water :).
Oh yeah she's got a chihuahua now - remote controlled, no less. And then Rockstar built a Lego house for it.

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    Do you think they were just winding you up with the water request?

    But at least Rockstar makes it real by drinking a few cups of water at the church. 🙂

      I wasn’t sure, to be honest… Initially I thought they were yanking my chain, and it’s true sometimes THEY admit to it (especially the older one), but that time someone had another theory – that she may be a bit hard of hearing say, with an ENT infection or complication that may have been looming…
