Here’s another time hop. Try not to be shocked. 😉
Case Study Log of
Infant 87 [I87] #C87 (Child 87)
Caregiver: Liliana Ikeda
(Entry by Xilla)
My name is Xilla. Just so you know it’s not pronounced “Zilla”. It’s pronounced “Tseela” or even “Zeela” if you have trouble saying the “ts-” sound. It’s OK if you say it wrong, though, I don’t mind; I know that some kids have trouble saying words.
Today I am eight years old. We had a cake and Lili’s family came over.
Well, I guess they are my family, too. They asked me to call them “grandma” or “uncle” or whatever… I do but only because it’s easy and it makes them feel nice.
It’s not so easy to call Lili my mama, though. I just don’t need to. She and I aren’t really like that. She never asked me, either.
I am pretty sure I had a real mama at some point… I think… Or maybe I just read about it in books or saw on TV and just assumed I did. That would be crazy though if I didn’t have a mother. Doesn’t everyone? Isn’t that how biology works?
Lili does act like a TV mama sometimes. She’s gotten really good at being stern.
It doesn’t always work on me, though. I act like a TV kid in response. You know, eye rolling and all that stuff. I think I’m pretty good at acting.
Sometimes if I’m really defiant she sends me to time out. I don’t mind because then I can nap in peace.
Lili probably isn’t even bothered when she sends me to time out. I bet she’s just glad to have some alone time.
The poor dears were both EXHAUSTED during the birthday party and they happened to pass out next to each other, haha!
