Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 82
This child surprised her today. She originally thought he would help Old Lady Han in criticising his mother, but unexpectedly, he turned against her.
Sanwang placed the few pancakes that he clutched onto the stove, “Eldest brother put down the grain before he took a pancake and went to cut the grass. Mother, look, I took the rest of them back, hehe.”
Lin Lan, this kid can be a handful at times, but he still has good sense. But is Dawang just embarrassed to meet me or has he yet to reconcile properly?
She said, “Let’s make some vegetable soup to go with pancakes. In the evening, I’ll make you some flatbread.”
“Okay, okay!” The children were very happy.
Maisui took the initiative to get some grass to help the fire burn, Erwang helped to wash the pot and Xiaowang also helped to scoop the water with the ladle to aid his mother in making the noodles.
At this time, Han Qingsong entered the courtyard holding a handful of beans, two cucumbers, an eggplant and two tomatoes in his hand.
She didn’t expect him to come back.
Lin Lan felt a little more comfortable with that thought in mind though. She originally thought that he would stay to comfort the old lady, but she greeted him with a gourd and said, “Wouldn’t the old lady scold you for picking so many things?”
Han Qingsong looked at her, “Second aunt and another aunt gave it to me.”
Ouch. See? This is the power of popularity. Being handsome has its perks.
She happily took them and Han Qingsong hesitated.
Lin Lan knew that he was probably embarrassed.
She mentioned that the old lady was being biassed towards the Third family but he didn’t believe her words. Nevertheless, he now found out that his trust was misplaced and his mother was the one in the wrong, which was why he felt ashamed because he was being put on the spot.
Due to the fact that men’s self-esteem were generally quite high, only a selected handful of them would be willing to admit their mistakes.
Her original intention was not to embarrass him as she just wanted to let him know of the truth. Naturally, she did not plan to be unreasonable as she did not want to intensify the conflict between them as husband and wife.
Besides, she never thought that Han Qingsong would go against the old lady like that. He was not such a person by nature and the customs of this era didn’t tolerate behaviour like that, which was why it surprised her.
Under normal circumstances, any child that treated their mother like this could practically be told off by the Secretary Head in front of the public.
“Wash your hands and come eat the pancakes.”
Han Qingsong, “It’s fine, let me.”
He took the water ladle over to wash the vegetables and when he was ready to give it to Lin Lan, he softly said, “This was my fault.”
Lin Lan lowered her head and chopped the vegetables, “We’re all just a family who’s trying to live as best as we can, so let’s not ponder about whose fault it was. I’m not going to say who was right and who was wrong either, as long as you can think of the children and take care of them properly in the future.”
Before this, she was still thinking of ways to bring the pot home. She thought that he was going to protest and be angry with her, so who would have thought that he would be mad at his own mother?
As such, the situation was not entirely hopeless.
Han Qingsong nodded, “I understand.”
Now that he was back, he thought that he should protect his wife and children. He should make sure that his family would live a good life.
Maisui boiled the water and opened the cover, “Mother, it’s done.”
