Chapter 1273 Shameful or Not? Shameful!
Just as she finished her words, Zhai Hua had the funniest expression when she thought of Qiao Nan saying ‘getting in through the back door’. From a certain perspective, she really could not deny Qiao Nan’s words.
“Is it troublesome?” After enduring for some time, Zhai Hua could only force out these words.
Coaxing Er Bao, Qiao Nan smiled. “If it’s troublesome, are you going to get rid of him for me?”
Zhai Hua rolled her eyes. “I am a lawful citizen and always abide by the law. I stay in a country governed by law. I don’t do this kind of kill and rob things. I am a good and kind person.”
Qiao Nan was momentarily stunned. These words sounded very familiar.
After thinking carefully, Qiao Nan then recalled that these were the words that she used to persuade Zhai Hua when the latter pointed her gun at Wei De after discovering Wei De’s true colors.
Miao Jing heard the conversation between her daughter-in-law and daughter. She walked out, carrying her granddaughter. “Is it troublesome?” After marrying Zhai Yaohui, Miao Jing was a full-time housewife. She had not worked in society before. However, she had heard of such complicated work situations before.
When she heard that her daughter-in-law had been targeted at by a man who was pettier than a woman, Miao Jing was unhappy. “The youngsters nowadays are so spoiled, especially guys. They’re so small-minded that they don’t behave like a man. So petty.” He had to be at odds with her daughter-in-law. Whose stubborn son was that? He deserved to be taught a lesson.
In the face of Miao Jing’s complaints, Qiao Nan smiled. She did not reply. This was because she knew that she would meet more of this kind of people in a few years’ time.
“Mom, hug.” San Bao was sick of her grandmother carrying her. In particular, looking at Er Bao occupying her mother’s arms, which was what she normally did, San Bao felt even more displeased. Clearly, Er Bao had already taken all of her mother’s time yesterday. Naughty Er Bao.
“Don’t mess around. Don’t use your hands to scratch others. You cannot hit Er Bao.” When the little girl flared up, Qiao Nan was so scared that she grabbed on to her little daughter’s naughty hands. She even hit her gently. “If you want Mom to hug you, you cannot do this. If this happens again, Mom will hug your brothers and not you.”
San Bao seemed to realize that she was in the wrong. She quickly withdrew her hands and smiled at both Qiao Nan and Er Bao, trying to gain their favor.
Er Bao did not take issue with his sister. He even waved at San Bao and let San Bao nest together with him in their mother’s arms.
It was impossible for Qiao Nan to carry two children at the same time. Nevertheless, she was sitting on the sofa now. It was still possible for Qiao Nan to open her arms and let the two children sit on her lap.
After using much strength, she carried San Bao onto her lap. Qiao Nan then quickly turned and gave Da Bao two kisses, one on his left cheek and one on his right. Da Bao was so happy that he held on to her calves and twisted his chubby body. He was overjoyed.
All of a sudden, Qiao Nan was surrounded by three chubby little kids. She did not even have enough limbs to accommodate all of them.
San Bao’s earlier scratch had made Qiao Nan concerned. “Mom, I think San Bao’s fingernails have grown a lot. After we bathe them tonight, let’s trim the triplets’ nails.”
The three children were still young and could not control their strength well.
If the children’s fingernails were long, Qiao Nan was afraid that they would hurt one another or even themselves during playtime. They were three such beautiful children. Qiao Nan was certainly not willing to see little bloody scratch marks all over her children’s face or body.
Unfortunately, San Bao, this little girl, liked to gesture a lot.
Although she would not deliberately hurt others with her fingernails, she could control her strength whenever she struck. Qiao Nan had suffered from her scratches before. It was so painful.
Miao Jing and Zhai Hua held on to Da Bao and Er Bao and checked their hands. “It’s true. They have grown so long in such a short time? I recall that we have just trimmed them a not long before.”
Could it be that children, including their fingernails, would grow very quickly?
After bathing, the triplets would doze off easily as they would feel very comfortable. The weather was turning cooler as well, and they would feel warm and cozy. Moreover, they had eaten their fill.
As such, after bathing the triplets, the three women went to them and carried one chubby child each. They looked well-trained as they helped the child in their arms trim the fingernails.
There was no choice. The triplets hated the trimming of fingernails since they were born. The reason was unknown.
Each time Qiao Nan trimmed their fingernails, she was very careful and never hurt them. However, they liked to cry whenever their fingernails were being cut.
Once the child cried, their little limbs would move and it would be even more difficult to trim the fingernails.
That really could not work. Thereafter, Qiao Nan and Miao Jing discussed and decided to trim the fingernails after they fell asleep.
Who would have known that the fingernails seemed to be a button on the triplets? Although they were sleeping soundly, as long as someone was to trim their fingernails, they would definitely wake up and cry within half a minute.
After some time, the women in the Zhai family had developed great skills, which was to finish trimming the triplets’ fingernails in the shortest time possible.
Initially, when they were not skillful enough, the Qiao Nan trio could finish trimming one or two of the fingernails before they wake up from their sleep and cry. After a few times, they could finish cutting two to three fingernails, until all five fingers of one hand. Thanks to their increasing speed, they could finish the task after the children had two naps.
Now that the triplets had grown up, they still disliked trimming fingernails. When the adults carried them to do so, their brows would knit like two little worms. They would wrinkle up their face and look as bitter as little bitter gourds.
As such, the Qiao Nan trio handled one child each and trimmed their fingernails at lightning speed.
After the trimming, the triplets heaved a huge sigh of relief simultaneously. They looked as if they had just experienced a round of harsh torture.“Done.” Miao Jing broke out in a forehead full of sweat. “Nan Nan, I will bring Da Bao to the bed to sleep first.
“Okay.” Qiao Nan had finished trimming the fingernails for San Bao and looked beside her. Zhai Hua had just finished trimming the remaining fingernail. “Each time we trim fingernails for them, it’s so exhausting. It’s tougher than the missions that I executed before.” Zhai Hua felt a little indignant. She kneaded and rubbed Er Bao, who was in her arms, to appease her hurt soul.
Er Bao was tickled. He went into hiding and reached out both his hands to Qiao Nan to seek help. “Mom, Mom! Help! Auntie. Bad!”
After putting Da Bao on the bed and covering the blanket for him, Miao Jing took a few steps back and slapped Zhai Hua’s hands. “You’re almost thirty years old and still have the shame to bully your one-year-old nephew. You’re going more and more backward. Don’t you feel ashamed?”
Having successfully taken hiding in his biological mother’s arms, Er Bao replied to his grandmother’s words in a bright and enthusiastic voice, “Shame!”
“Alright, this little naughty boy. You dare to laugh at me.” Zhai Hua was ‘furious’. Ow! She pretended to be a tiger and pounced on Er Bao. Er Bao and San Bao were so taken aback that they screamed loudly together. The bean-sized men were now running around in the bedroom.
San Bao even accidentally had a fall.
