Nobody Loves Me

Last Saturday, MC came home after playing with her friend, in a good mood.

And then suddenly, she found everything at home not in order.

She complained about the smell of the grill (our tenants were in the garden having a little party), she complained that her room is a mess (we were in the middle of tidying up when she left to play with her friend), and then to our amazement, she started throwing things around!

Well, I had to stop her! I took her in my arms and told her to take a break first. She wont, instead she run back to her room, scattering her toys around. I told her to stop or else everything would be broken and she wont have toys to play with anymore.

She answered me back with these words: 'Niemand hat mich lieb' Nobody loves me.

Huh? What did she say? I was shocked and a bit curious with her dramatic display. In fact, I asked her to repeat what she just said. She did, with a hint of embarrassment. Right there and then, I told her, of course we love her.

She calmed down after a few minutes and she cleaned up her room without saying anything.

But later that night, I had to ask her where she got those words from. Did she hear those words from anyone? Did she get those from a movie? Where?

Nothing. She simply smiled at me.

I also get surprised when Yohan displays a different kind of emotion and behavior I haven't witnessed before.

Kids can easily pick up new words and behavior from their surroundings.

Madrama ang MC mo ha. She might do well in the drama club ;) in school. I think it's also good to try to give a poker face during outbursts(even if you are reeling inside) like this so that they don't get much of a reaction that they usually expect.

maybe she got it from a book, there is that particular children's book with that title or theme... could have been the trigger..

analyse, telenovelas, baka mas malala pa when they do watch those things!

bem, i think just a burst of temper

tina, i am seriously thinking about drama school but i might join her so i would know what to expect and have my poker face ready
