I can imagine how you react when you see the title post, ‘note from cm‘? how weird eh. Well it happened few months back, i was at home in the evening trying to ask them to settle, take shower, ready books for tomorrow, bla bla bla but still nothing happened. I tried again, this time i focus on ‘go take your shower’ no, no movement but i hear she says ‘abang dulu bah’ requested that his brother go first, and no, no action again.
I then asked them to switch off the tv, all i can hear is ‘wait..wait’ and at that time i really feel my heart is boiling. Calm and steady, i told myself but eventually the tv are more important to them at that time and at that same it i really feel like screaming but ‘calm and steady’ i remind myself but i feel like exploding any moment so i decided to hide away and lock myself in my room. “I will be in my room, do what been told and don’t disturb me” my last word before entering my room. “Mummy!! ok i will take my shower, don’t go in the room, come out.. please...”, i heard everything and just lying on the bed doing nothing just to calm myself. “Mummy, open the door!!” her voice so loud, as if she was locked in a room wanting to go out.. i cannot imagine what the neighbors would think, “stay out please” i told her while Whatsap my friend telling her what happened.. mother to mother.. well she ever did the same to her kids before.
She knock the door a few times, i just keep quite and looking through the my FB, i heard she sing “.. would you like to play the snowman…… ok bye..” i wanted to laugh because i know she imagine herself as Anna from the movie Frozen… and its cute though thinking of the scene. My daughter is just so drama queen yet so sweet.
I was enjoying my quite moment inside the room, FBing and Whatsapp while thinking what to do next. “Mummy, look down the door”..please, my daughter plea. I look down and i saw the ‘note from CM’..here what she wrote.
This note from cm, initial for Chrissa Marie asking me to open the door and telling me how sorry she was and when i opened the door they already done what being told and i felt much better. When i posted this in my FB, seems that many mothers did the same thing before and it work well.
To lock myself is not a good thing actually but it can be a good lesson for them. You can’t do this often as they will copy back but to try this technique once in awhile
