Me: Why not?
Little Boy: I just can't!
Me: Why not? It's true! She will be inexperienced and I will do a much better job at looking after the children. Am I not doing a good job looking after you?
At this point, there was an awkward pause. Little Boy looked helplessly at me and then said, "I can't tell her that she is inexperienced at looking after our children, Mom. That would be like Daddy telling you that you're no good at looking after JieJie and me."
Hmmmm... I must admit that Little Boy had a good point there!! But I insisted "You gotta tell her something!! Or is that you don't trust me to look after your kids?" Okay... I do admit that the last bit was somewhat lowdown eh?
And then Little Boy proposed the following, "I can tell her that you won't mind helping to look after the children so that she can concentrate on her career." Hmmmm... he's a gong-gong, my son... but I think he'll do well with women.
After about 30 minutes, Little Boy came back and said "Ummm... Mom... I don't know if my wife will want to have 3 children." And that was when I dissolved into giggles. Little Boy is so earnest and funny!!
