When it comes to stubborness (is there such word?), Faythe is definitely no. 1. Especially when she’s tired and sleepy, she can become very demanding and difficult to handle.
Sometimes even I try to explain to her, she will not listen and wants it her way . I never give in, but just try to keep explaining. If all fails, I’ll just continue with what needs to be done, and leave her there whining. After a while, she will stop, if she finds something distracts her. I realise that it works to actually leave her alone rather than trying to explain to her during that time where she doesn’t accept explanation.
So what happened? It was some time ago, she was really tired that day (didn’t nap the whole day). I know she is, but when I asked her if she wants to sleep, she says No. So fine. I needed to shower and get ready as we wanted to go out for dinner. She refused to let me shower. She wanted to follow me into the room. After failing to coax her to play with Vyktore & maid, I told her OK, you can come in to the room, but i have to close the door.
So she’s left in the room, and I’m in the attached bathroom. She didn’t allow me to close my shower screen door, but I had to or else the water will be everywhere. So I closed it, s
he wasn’t too happy. She was rolling on the floor, whining. Not crying, just whining and stamping her feet, showing her discontentment. While bathing, I actually opened the door and told her, Mommy gotta bath, you just wait. Tried to distract her ask her to read her books, but failed lah.
So I continue washing my hair. 5 minutes into washing hair, suddenly it all went silent…And I was like, aiks…what happened. Only 2 possibility:
- She went to play something else in the room
- She fell asleep
I tried calling her, but no answer. So I slide the door and peeped. To my amaze, my stubborn lil girl who claimed that she’s not tired, fell asleep on the FLOOR!!!
Yeah…just like the pic you see on top. Amazing eh. I tried calling her, she was already in wonderland. So I continue taking my shower. Finished taking my shower, went to take my camera and nicely snap a few photo of her sleeping on the floor LOL. She must be so so tired, my poor gal. But due to her stubborness, she had to sleep on the floor hahah…
Later on, I carried her up the bed and she slept for a good 1 hour before we went for late dinner.
Anyone’s children who sleeps on the floor like Faythe?
