Last night, my daughter surprised me by showing off her malambing nature. We were watching MTV while I sang to her when one of the good videos came up. When I looked at her to see what her reaction was to my singing, she made a “nguso”, kissed me and clapped her chubby hands afterwards. Wasn’t that the sweetest? It was the first time she did so without me asking it from her.
The other time she surprised me with her affectionate nature was last week was when I fetched her from her long 4-day stay-over at my grandma’s house. When I opened the door to see ate Linda and her playing she looked up at me and flashed me her big mega-watt, six-toothed grin. What more, she even gave me a big hug when i picked her up.
Although I maybe out of her sight for 12 hours (or more) every weekdays, her “lambing”-ness (self-made word) to me, every time I come home, is the bestest ever reward a mother could ever have.
