May Be Later?

`May Be Later?' is Kayrin's favourite phrase for now. Prodded to take a shower, go to bed or stop playing the computer, she will turn around and say that with an innocent smile.
Shaw Feng and I were fooled, for a while. Once Shaw Feng loses his patience though, the cane comes out. Not something I agree, as capital punishment when overused doesn't leave much effect among the kids.
At 4 a.m. this morning, Kayrin woke up and asked for milk (her third for the night because she had gone to bed before 7 pm last night.) After her drink, I threw her her bolster. It hit her face.
`That was rude,' she said. `Don't do it again tomorrow.'
I had to meekly agree after apologising.
