During CNY, I went to my mum-in-law home for dinner. My son was offered 3 ice-cream cones, of which he was to choose 1 for himself alone. But he quickly grabbed all three and passed one to my wife, one for me, and one for himself. I wasn’t really interested in the ice-cream so I wanted to pass it to another person, but my son took it back and pressed it in my hands.

It’s quite sweet actually that he thought of his family first. It’s not the first instance when he did that. There was a time when we went up to take an MRT ride somewhere, and there were only 2 seats left. Usually, I’ll just stand, so I told my wife and son to just sit at the two empty seats. They did, but when my son realised that I wasn’t seated, he rushed out to grab my hands and pull me towards the seats.
