Scene 1: Caitlin asked Eugene to play a game on the mobile phone. She cheers him on.
Caitlin: Come on daddy, you can do it. Go, go, never give up. Find a way. That's what winners do!
Me (surprised and puzzled): Where did you learn those phrases from?
Caitlin (eyes still fixed on phone, in a brush-off tone): From 'Surf's Up' lah! Daddy, come on....
Scene 2: Caitlin colouring a picture
Caitlin: See mum, I added a long sticky tongue for the frog and there's a fly on it. Is it nice?
Me: Yes, that's good.
Caitlin: Yeah, I'm so intelligent, huh....
Scene 3: At the toy section in a supermarket
Caitlin: Mum, can you please buy this for me?
Me: Where's the money you were saving to buy things?
Caitlin: No, you use your money!
