Mei Mei Learns to Share

Thursday, July 22...
Our first day off from doing anything. A much needed break because it seems like we have been in China for 2 weeks already… maybe even a month… but, it’s only been 3 days.

We returned to Walmart to spend Chinese yuan and waste part of our day. Mei Mei wanted to walk, so daddy hunched over and held her body as she walked all around Walmart. Too bad she’s decided not to bond with me today. It caused a lot of back pain for Jason.

We had lunch at Pizza Hut. Mom ordered the standard: a 9inch deep dish cheese pizza with pepperoni and pineapple. Mei Mei ordered fried rice. We had to have a discussion about whose food was whose. The waitress always puts the food in front of the baby and the baby thinks it’s all hers. So, mama had to lay down some rules… and say who the food was for. Mama’s pizza. Mei Mei’s and Baba’s noodles. She has decided to share… especially her green and red peppers and pineapple. But, at times, she will share her rice and noodles.
