I am so happy

My mom was busy wiping the stove in the kitchen, when she noticed my 2.5 year old daughter, Regine, quietly observing the work from behind. Figuring that she was just being nosy like she always does, my mom decided to let her do the observing and continued with the chores, until my daughter finally broke the silence,

“Grandma, I am so happy.”

Curious, my mom turned to her and asked,

“Oh that’s great. Why are you so happy then? Care to tell grandma?”

She didn’t answer. She just looked at my mom wearing this smirk and repeatedly say, “I am soooo happy.”

My mom then went like, oh well… must be one of her silly antics, and moved on to other chores in the apartment.

But Regine did not just stop there. She tagged along wherever my mom went, and would say “I am sooo happy, grandma.”, “I am so happyyyy”. It was before long when it started to get really annoying for my mom… and she had to stop whatever she was doing and asked my daughter proper about the ‘happy’ thing,

“Why are you so happy Regine? Can you tell me already?”

Still wearing the smirk, she finally answered,

“I am so happy because I am your stepmother, and you’re wiping around the house.”

It was a reference to the Cinderella story my wife had been telling her – she was actually imagining herself as the stepmother, and my mom as Cinderella… and she’s having a kick watching my mom (Cinderella) working her ass off doing house chores.

That’s my daughter, who seemingly has the propensity to absorb the wrong elements out of even fairy tales.

    LOL omg. I remember you mentioning that she wanted to be the evil stepmother instead of Cinderella. She’s still sticking to that idea.

    Hahahahahah she’s got some attitude.

    Some more she got the patience and fortitude to continue following her round to make the impact even greater when she ‘shares’ her reason.

    hopefully tht would not reflect on how she will be when growing up.

    probably its good for you to educate her whts bad and whts good, since she sounds like she has the ability to judge.
