Parents have no doubt heard of the term “Terrible Two’s”. My little niece Drumstick was no exception. Even though she is now 3 months removed from her 3rd birthday, Pie Pie Lo and I still call her “T.T.” for obvious reasons.
Apparently the other day Little Drumstick tried to pull one of her classmate’s pony tail and her parents have been summoned for a meeting as the teacher was none too impressed with the antics. Grandma jokingly quipped that Little Drumstick has “made her clan proud.” 「佢今次真係光宗耀祖囉。」
I suppose it is one of life’s lessons Little Drumstick has apparently mastered: It’s better to bully then to be bullied. Everyone in our family can certainly attest to that but we all managed to survive…….
Now despite her mischievous nature, it does not take away the fact that Little Drumstick is just…….plain…….funny. Based on what I’ve seen in the past year, I honestly see a lot of potential in this little gal.
She’s not shy, which serves her well in parties and family gatherings because she’s not afraid to be the jokester or, more appropriately, the center of attention. There’s the element of surprise. Little Drumstick has a knack of making unexpected comments or gestures with a keen sense of awareness and, believe it or not, comedic timing. We often wondered:
“Where did she learn that phrase? And how would she know to use it in such context?”
Little Drumstick enjoys seeing our reactions and, to our family’s amazement, she projects the image that she KNEW what she was doing and how everything would unfold at the end.
Put it all together, we may have something here.
A future comedic superstar?!
We’re havin’ a laugh!
Item du jour
She’s good……. Would love to see her do “Billie Jean”…….
