Since last week, naughty Kyara has been crying practically every night.....crying is an understatement...she seemed to be screaming her lungs out..for at least 30 mins or longer each time. Without much warning, she would just launch into nonsensical crying....i would try to carry and pat her, or leave her alone on the bed, or use the cane on her when she continued to bawl...(other than stopping for brief seconds to tell me she doesnt want me to beat her with the cane) if she still didnt stop after i have counted to 3, left her standing alone....engaged her jiejie or gorgor to console her.....nothing worked.
So last night, i let her scream for really long....until she looked exhausted, still she went on relentlessly...then i plunked her back on bed and placed her small pillow over her face...trying to drown out her terribly bad-sounding cries...(the rest actually slept amidst the cacophony)....then within seconds...the crying stopped.....NOPE...she didnt die....(in case you are wondering what a bad mummy i am....it was just a small and light pillow)....she actually fell asleep.
It dawned on me that she must be really tired and sleepy but because she still wants to continue playing into the night, that must have been why she threw tantrums. Not willing to go to sleep just yet....even when the clock was showing 23:30......haiz
