Baby C And Sherilyn's Toy Clock

This wind-up toy clock used to be Sherilyn's. Daddy bought it for her when she was 10 months old. After the clock is being wound up, there is music in the tune of 'Hickory Dickory Dock' and the hands of the clock will tick and move.

When Baby C cried non-stop 2 weeks ago, Daddy dug out the old clock from Aly and Sher's toys cabinet and wound up the clock. When Baby C heard the soothing soft music and the ticking of the clock, she stopped crying and stared at the clock as the hands were moving. Since then, this toy clock has been her favorite toy and greatest companion.

When Sher saw daddy taking her clock away and left it in Baby C's cot, all hell broke loose. Sher has always been rather possessive with her things and she just could not part with her clock (though she does not play with it anymore). She was hollering away like a dog whose tail was being stepped on. She snatched the clock away, brought it back to her room and refused to part with it. After some sweet talking and bribes, she finally brought the toy clock back to my room and gave it back to Baby C. It was very rare that Sher would be so generous and for once, she obeyed me. I was really touched with her generosity and gave her a big hug and lots of praises and kisses.
