Choose By Herself


Miaomiao wakes up at half past seven this morning and continues to sleep after opening her eyes watching me for a while. She gets up at a quarter past 9. Her grandma feeds her breakfast then.
After breakfast, as her grandma wants to clean the kitchen, i take Miaomiao to the Junxiang shopping center with her small cart by myself.

We leave home at half past ten. Sitting in her small cart, Miaomiao feels happy to go out with me. I push the cart to the nearby bus station and then carry the cart with Miaomiao together to the 12 bus. I carry Miaomiao and her cart off the bus at the Crossing Street station. After a short walk, we arrive at the Junxiang shopping center.
At first, and the same to yesterday, whenever i choose a dress or a pair of scandals for her and ask her opinion, she all says dislike, not pretty such kinds of words. Then i change my strategy. I ask her to select scandals for herself and tell her that she couldn’t buy a pair of shoes if too picky, in that case she has to wear her airtight leather shoes for a whole summer. Then i find it works. She starts to choose shoes carefully. When she points to a white scandal with an orange flower on it and tells me that she wants to have a try, i feel very glad though i don’t think that scandal is pretty. She trys the scandal and then another, and more and more. At last i buy a pair of red scandals for her, which are choosen by herself. And then, i find her selection is not that bad actually. We continue walking in the shopping center, this time she seems to be changed. She is more positive to look for dresses. When i point one dress and ask her opinion, she says ok and willing to try. I think maybe she feels that she is respected when giving her more rights to choose and decide things by herself. Then she behaves more positive and can listen to my suggestions after that.
As time is limited, we have to go home for lunch. We only buy one pair of scandals for her this time. Maybe we will come here for shopping earlier next time. And i will also let Miaomiao choose dresses by herself then.
