When I was still pregnant I promised Ayex that after giving birth, we will go out and ride the train. We used to give her train rides before I got pregnant on our free weekends. We would ride the MRT from Trinoma to Taft and back. Sometimes, we would go down at Cubao station so we can ride the LRT2 from there to Santolan and from Santolan to Recto. It was like wasting money but we don’t mind because Ayex enjoys the ride so much. So much that when she sees a train passing by, she would squeal out of sheer delight and would wave bye bye to the train.
On Friday, I have plans of going to Ortigas and Makati to pick up the prizes we recently won from a magazine and a web site. I planned of bringing her with me so she can ride the train. But she’s been acting up terribly these days. Despite giving her rewards, she won’t finish her food and later on asks for biscuits. She won’t clean up her toys despite threatening her of throwing them. She won’t even sleep for a good 8 hours! She shouts at people when she gets frustrated or when they do something she doesn’t like. And when she’s awake, all she thinks of are watching the television and playing endlessly.
I could let all the above acts pass because I really want her to ride the train and besides, it’s a promise. I might not be able to give her that when I go back to work in three weeks. But what she did just a few hours ago told me she does not deserve it.
She didn’t finish her lunch. When MIL came home from the doctor, she gave her a lollipop as her pasalubong and she wanted it opened immediately which hubby did not permit. Next thing you know she’s already answering back. Hubby asked her Sino ba ang daddy mo? and Ayex answered Wala.. It made hubby very angry and me too. She cried and kept on calling to her lola. What a brat! We need to break this little girl’s evil horns or else she’ll be a pain to us when she grows older.
Before hubby left for work he said she cannot sleep with us. If he finds her in our bed, he’ll wake her up and bring her to her lolo and lola’s room. I will miss her by my side but she should learn the lesson. I told Ate Meriam and EmEm not to take care of her in front of her lola. Everything she needs should be asked from her lolo and lola. I told her that if she won’t return her toys where they should be, they will go to the garbage bag I will prepare. This set up will continue as long as she doesn’t obey me and hubby.
Good luck to us.
