Juan Or's Heart-melting Gestures
After reading about how Juan Juan of My Little Sprouts! made her parents happy, Mommy is reminded of Juan Or's heart-melting gestures as well and decided that Mommy must put them in record here.
After coming back from work, Mommy will usually sit on the floor at the Japanese tea table to eat packed economy rice. But sometimes, instead of sitting on the floor, Mommy would get a low plastic stool to sit and eat. One day, Mommy decided to sit directly on the floor to eat. Juan Or, on seeing Mommy sitting on the floor, quickly walked over to the low plastic stool and took it in his hands, in the process turning the stool upside down. Mommy didn't understand his action at first and even asked him why he had to 'disturb' the stool! To Mommy's surprise, he handed it over to Mommy for Mommy to sit! Oh, Mommy was very touched!
Sometimes when Juan Or did naughty things, Mommy would nag or scold him. Deep down inside, Mommy is very angry with him. Then in the midst of Mommy's anger, Juan Or would lovingly and earnestly call "Mama! Mama!" with very thoughtful-looking eyes. So, won't any mother's anger cool down immediately and then feel bad for scolding this lovable child? By the way, Juan Or did the same with his Papa too! However, occasionally, after hearing Mommy's long nagging and scolding, Juan Or would stuff his forefingers into his ears. On seeing that, Mommy would think inside,"!!!???? Where did he learn that from!?"
