Daily Expressions Mothers Use for Their Children (II)

Did you wash your hands before eating? No, do it now, what have I told you so many times.

吃饭前洗手了吗(chī fàn qián xǐ shǒu le ma)?没有是吧(méi yǒu shì ba),马上去洗(mǎ shàng qù xǐ)。都跟你说过多少遍了(dōu gēn nǐ shuō guò duō shǎo biàn le)。

First swallow the food and then talk

先把饭菜咽下去(xiān bǎ fàn cài yàn xià qù),然后再说话(rán hòu zài shuō huà)

 

Stop jumping all the time, you made me dizzy

不要再跳了(bú yào zài tiào le),跳得我头都晕了(tiào dé wǒ tóu dōu yūn le)

 

Oh my god, again you have made your bed wet

妈呀(mā ya),你怎么又尿床了(nǐ zěn me yòu niào chuáng le)。

Or 天啊(tiān ā),你怎么又把床给弄湿了(nǐ zěn me yòu bǎ chuáng gěi nòng shī le)。

(If you do not mean bed-wetting, use the second one.)

I have the sweetest child in the world.

Do you love me as much as I do?

你也像我爱你那么爱我么(nǐ yě xiàng wǒ ài nǐ nà me ài wǒ me)?

(Well, this one is like a tongue twister.)

 

What do you want me to buy to you?

想要我给你买什么呀(xiǎng yào wǒ gěi nǐ mǎi shén me ya)?

 

Do not cry my sweet boy / girl, you have to be more careful next time, I slapped you but you made me to lose control, you know how much I love you.

好了,不哭了,乖宝宝(hǎo le, bù kū le, guāi bǎo bǎo)。下回要小心点,知道吗(xià huí yào xiǎo xīn diǎn, zhī dào ma)? 你太让我生气了(nǐ tài ràng wǒ shēng qì le),我才打的你(wǒ cái dǎ de nǐ)。你是知道我有多爱你的(nǐ shì zhī dào wǒ yǒu duō ài nǐ de)。

If you do not sit quietly I am going to beat you.....Do not answer me back, I will slap you....Do not cry my sweet boy / girl, you have to be more careful next time, I slapped you but you made me to lose control, you know how much I love you.....I find it very disconcerting how often I see Chinese websites, stories etc, that talk about hitting children like there's nothing wrong with it :(

@Shu

Hi, Shu. “麻麻" is quite a new variation of "妈妈". It's frequently used nowdays. With the third tone, it feels more gentle.

This is great, Suray Su, xiexie!

By the way, I never heard of 麻麻的宝贝; is it something very common or just in certain regions of mainland?
