Adib has been very restless for the last one month crying, shouting, laughing and screaming for a new bike. There was this one weekend (when abah was oustationed), he actually cried in the car, scolding mummy not to wait for abah and just chose one bike for him ...with tears running down his face. I handed over my handphone and asked him to talk to Abah, he did but before that he wiped his tears, cleared his throat and actually talked to Abah in a tears-free-voice, asking if he can get Mummy to buy him a new bike and he just ok-ed when abah told him to wait until Abah came back for us to buy it together...
This is one of the incidences whereby the boys can get very complicated with mummy but can easily agreeing with Abah.
The old bike is a hand-me-down from Along to Angah and last but not least down to Adib. The wear and tear is not that bad actually--- besides I did cahnge the tyres last year or maybe the year before:)but perhaps it is just unberable to Adib and the fact that Along and Angah was busy spraying theirs with new colours and changing accessories may to certain extend get into him!
After postposing endlessly finally, last weekend, we bought Adib his first newly own bike.
I think I wrote before about Adib who is by nature very cautious over things like swimming, playing etc. and he is now complaining that the new bike is too big --as he has already had some scratches on his leg from falling off the bike yesterday --and commented that we should get him a smaller one.....sabar je lah!
