“I’m going to make friends now.” Miaomiao told her father Sam last forenoon while she was playing in the Children’s Playground with Sam. Then she ran and followed an elder sister to play. When the sister said “I want to go home” to her mother, Miaomiao also said “I want to go home” to us.
I took her to the Children’s Playground to play again after supper last night. After jumped on the trampoline for a while, she chased after an elder sister in a blue dress and wanted to play with that girl. This sister didn’t want to play with Miaomiao and ran here and there. Miaomiao followed her for a while and then lost her. She looked around and then chased another two elder sisters. These two sisters played toy cars and other facilities together and also didn’t play with her. At last Miaomiao found another big sister and chased after her again. This big sister played with her younger brother for a while and then began to build blocks. Miaomiao imitated the girl to hold the building blocks above her head for a while and then sat beside the girl to add blocks on the sister’s buildings. She seemed very happy to play with the big sister, though the sister didn’t play with her actually. This sister went away to her mother after a while and Miaomiao also went to me then.
Miaomiao often calls the little girl who is a bit elder than her the “big sister”. She likes to play with big sisters and often chases after them in the Children’s Playground, not only yesterday. Sometimes those big sisters play with her, and sometimes they don’t. Miaomiao likes to follow them and plays with them. She lacks of playmates.
So in some sense, Miaomiao may feel happy to go to the kindergarten soon, as she can make many friends there. But will she get used to not seeing mom for a whole day in the kindergarten? Hope she can enjoy there soon.
