The four little boys also ran up, glaring at those people, and said: “Yes! Don’t talk about our sister!”
“We like our sister, we want a sister! It’s none of your business, go away!”
Seeing that the old and the young were all on the same side, the group was speechless and left unhappily.
The old lady Shen sent the midwife out, immediately threw down the hoe, and led her four grandsons into the house to see the newborn granddaughter.
Once inside, she saw Shen Jianlin holding the baby in swaddling clothes, smiling incessantly, the corners of his mouth almost reaching behind his ears. That joy is more than having four sons before.
“Jianlin, how can you hug the baby! You rough men are neither light nor heavy, nor careful enough, what if you drop the baby?” The old lady Shen looked nervous that she hurriedly went forward to carry the little baby over.
“Mom! This is my daughter. How long have I held her as a dad? How can you snatch her from me?” Shen Jianlin didn’t want to give her his daughter and held on to her.
“So what if you are the father? I’m your mother, is it easy to raise you? You do not even let me hold the baby? Hurry up, let go, let me hug my granddaughter!”
The old lady Shen stared at him, Shen Jianlin reluctantly handed the child to her, still not forgetting to say: “Mom, you have to give her back to me after holding her for a while.”
The expression seemed to be as if old lady Shen would eat the baby.
“Go away! Oh, little girl, little sweetheart… let grandma take a look!” The old lady Shen took the little baby, her eyes filled with joy that could not be concealed, and the wrinkles on her face were stretched out. She can’t wait to rub the little girl into her heart and dote on her.
Fubao originally thought it was incredible to have a father who liked his daughter.
Now there is a grandma who likes girls?
This seems to be better than she expected, at least she doesn’t need to be abandoned or killed!
“Look how beautiful the little girl looks! The other babies were red and ugly when they were just born, like a little old man. Our baby can be white and chubby. She is really a beautiful girl!” The more she look at the baby, the more she likes her, and she didn’t want to let go of her.
“That’s right! How can my daughter not look good? My wife is so beautiful, of course her daughter is beautiful!” Shen Jianlin couldn’t hold her daughter, so he hugged his wife with a smug look on his face.
Fubao only felt that his father seemed a bit silly.
“Come on, Xiujuan, take a look at the baby.” The old lady Shen placed the child gently in front of her daughter-in-law Lin Xiujuan, very cautiously, as if she was dealing with some rare treasure,
“Xiujuan, you have worked so hard adding such a beautiful girl to our old Shen family. You are really a great hero of our family!”
Even though Lin Xiujuan who was half lying on the bed was very weak, she laughed when she heard this, “Mom, I’m okay, and the baby is born safely. It’s worth the hard work. That…”
The four boys on the side could no longer hold back. They were not tall enough, so they stood on tiptoes and looked up vigorously.
The eight-year-old eldest Shen Zhishu stretched out his hand to grab the arm of the old lady, “Grandma! I want to see my sister too! Show me!”
The six-year-old second son, Shen Zhili flushed with excitement, “Grandma, I want to hug my sister too. Let me give her a hug!”
The third and fourth twin brothers, Shen Zhiyi and Shen Zhile, who are five-year-old twins, also tried to take a look at their sister.
“No, if you hold her, you’ll drop your sister! I’ll carry my granddaughter to show the old man first, then I’ll show you!” The old lady Shen said as she carried the little baby to the next room.
“Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”
