TLC : A's crying

LJ : A, top (stop) it cry, mama upters (upstairs). Saying in a soft manner.
A : Still crying.
LJ : A, top (stop) it cry. Mama, upters (upstairs).
A : Intensely crying still.
LJ : Tita! top (stop) dance! ee up! (switch it off). He meant to switch off the radio because A is still crying.

We were having dinner A seated on her high chair and LJ seated beside A when A suddenly cried. 

LJ : Oh why cry A? Top (stop) it.
A : Still crying.
LJ : Top (stop) it A cry, mama here. Saying in a soft manner while pointing towards me.

Oh, I am so proud to have a sweet son who looks after her little sister despite being cranky also oftentimes.
