It’s been our practice to let Sarah play in her water pool during weekend once in every two weeks. All this while, she’s playing alone; maybe due to this, she will easily get bored and get up from the water soon enough.
But last Sunday was just not the same…my neighbour’s daughter had join in!
At first Sarah felt excited when she saw “jie jie” (sister) walk towards our house and straight jumped into the pool. The jie jie really had a great splashing time, she enjoyed swimming and spattering inside; but our little girl just watching her doing all the acts and sitting there with her toys.
Then the next thing I know, the crying started (inevitable). The jie jie snatched the toys from her hands and take it out from the pool…
But after a while, Sarah was able to calm down; as time passed she felt more comfortable playing with the girl and even learned to swim from her. At least I could hear some laughter from her, finally.
