去万圣节爬梯的路上,瓜子儿跟我提起将评选最佳服装。我及时和她温习了上次滑铁卢的教训,她眨眼深思不说话。爬梯结束后,问她谁得到最佳服装奖,她一副事不关己的样子说不知道,“I was quite sure I would not be the winner. When they were awarding the prize, Owen and I went to the Scary Room. All the people were in the hall, so there wasn't a queue in the Scary Room. We went through twice, so fun! ”我惊叫一声你太聪明啦,她补充道:“And also we got cup cakes, nobody was there neither!”


这简直的就是动脑子活用common sense的经典案例,肯定得大肆鼓励。我说你要是掌握这个本领,你未来的生活肯定特别efficient,酱就可以享受更多的乐呵,一举好几得。她又深沉地眨眼不说话。

瓜子儿过生日前,让她写下wish list,说好可以写五个想要的礼物,但最终会给她买仨。当然其实买了四个,有一个算是意外惊喜。我劝她放弃了两匹大小不一的塑胶小马。结完帐后问她为什么会选两匹,她说是mother & daughter。哎呀那一瞬间我这叫一后悔,但不能食言。后来和小赛逛Brick Lane市场时,看见有二手的买下补给她。


话说当时看到wish list时有点儿吃惊,除了Moxie Girl ——就是英国的芭比娃娃,都是小零碎。问她为什么没把一直惦记的Ipad写上,她说:“I know you won't buy it for me, I just don't want to waste the quota. But absolutely I will put it on my Christmas wish list to see if I'm lucky.”


S她这想法。我花好几十年才理顺的思路,小P孩儿居然已运用自如。这是她早慧呢还是母们教育得好image



这次回京给瓜子儿带回一Ipad,舅舅送她的礼物。圣诞节的wish list又可以省下一个quota惦记别的了。
