Every night at Connor's bedtime, we go through the same thing. After his nightly bath and a final play time and night-night kisses from us, Connor is put to bed. And every night he will try to delay sleep by pretending to be lovey-dovey and cuddling up to Mummy. I used to give in to him and cuddle him but I quickly realised that if I remained firm and ignored him, he would fall asleep within minutes.
Two nights ago, we had the same sleep time drama. He was trying to cuddle up to me, saying over and over again "Sayang Mummy.... sayang Mummy... Mummy sayang Connor please..." So I said firmly to him "Connor. Go to bed. Now is night-night time."
Just as firmly Connor said "NO. Now is SAYANG time!"
I will confess that I laughed and gave in for one more time. How could I not!
Yes. My son is trilingual. Sort of. He can speak English, Chinese (one word only: gwailo!) and Malay (one word only: Sayang).... hahahahahaha......
