Although still a bit sleepy this morning, MC's wish for Christmas kicked me to full wakefullness. She wanted a tattoo!
I dont know how to react, what to say.
Good things she explained her wish further. 'Mama, did you know that D (her teacher in kindergarten) have a flower tattoo near her breasts? I like it, but she said she cannot take it out anymore. That is surely painful.'
Arrgh, this drives down the point on how powerful the influence of the people around the kids are. Imagine, she wanted one simply because her teacher, whom she adores, have a tattoo!
Then MC further said, ' I know I still have to wait a little longer to have a tattoo of my own. I would be six this December, by then I could decide.' Ooops, who told her she could have a tattoo when she's six? But, she's not yet finished...
'So now I am telling you, please buy me a toy tattoo machine for Christmas,' she ended with a pleading smile. And I heaved a sigh of relief.
