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.
