Alarm! Alarm!! Alarm!!! You might have read my last post Why This, Why That. The one about how intense my precious Godsend has been asking me about babies lately. How parents “make” them, where they come out from, what they do inside a mother’s tummy, how do they come out, how a baby turns to be a boy or a girl, how ALLAH decides the baby to be a girl or a boy, why not every couple has kids, etc. Now Kukka’s questions have evolved into wishes, requests.
People, my beloved Godsend is officially on this stage where she wants to have a sibling. 2 to be exact!!! #SiBubufainting. I can’t remember how it started but Kukka’s baby questions have turned into a specific demand. Almost every day Kukka tells me that she wants a sister and a brother. Yup. 2 siblings. #SiBubufaintingagain. She even has names already!!!! #LOL
One day we had a convo more or less like this:
Kukka : So Bubu, you already have a daughter, me, right?!?
SiBubu : Yyyyeeeessss.... #worried.
Kukka : So if you had another child, it should be a boy, right? A son, which means he will be my baby brother.
SiBubu : Mmmm...... Not necessarily...... What if ALLAH gives us a girl instead #stillworried.
Kukka : But if you do have a son, he will be my baby brother, right? What name will you give him?
SiBubu : ....................................Trent Reznor?
Kukka : That’s your favorite singer!!! Cool! I love it! But it’s too long.
SiBubu : ...............................................Treznor?
Kukka : Hmmm..... Treznor Lawendatu. I love it!!! Now if ALLAH gives your next baby a girl, which makes her my sister, I will name her Kiki. No no! With a “q”. Qiqi. It's better. Is it a cool name??
SiBubu : .................Yes.... Very cool.
So, ladies and gents, after having that convo, almost every day my daughter talks about Treznor and Qiqi #LOL. How she would love them, take care of them, share her toys with them, etc. When Kukka saw me giving away her old toys, she would say “No! That’s for Qiqi or Treznor! Don’t throw it away!”. When we stroll in the mall and Kukka sees something that she likes, she would say “Oh Treznor will love this!” or “I’m sure Qiqi wants this!”. Oh man!!! #LOL
Last night I finally asked Kukka why she would love to have a sibling that much. Her answer....and her expression broke my heart. Kukka said, with her sweet, super cute and please-give-me-what-I-want voice:
“Because I’m lonely...”
I’ve shared Kukka’s latest request in my Twitter and Path accounts and most of my friends replied with funny comments. Aaaaaaaaaand all of them are on Kukka’s side!!! They said “Give Kukka a sister, Bubu!!!” or “Start making a sister and a brother for Kukka, Bapa and Bubu!!!” and so on and so on. All of the comments made me laughed so hard. I didn’t know what to say to her. Finally I said to Kukka that I don’t want another child. I only want her because I don’t want to share my love for her with another one. Then Kukka said:
“Don’t be selfish, Bubu. That’s not nice.
You have to share. And you do want to make me happy, right?!?”
*Kukka pretending to hold her baby sister/brother*
SiBubu : Well..... Let me talk to Bapa, okay?
And that, ladies and gents, is how I got out of the conversation. At least for now!!! #LOL
