Today is Wei Shuying’s birth day. The eldest son, Qiao Yicheng, is lying in the shockproof shed and staring at the sky, wondering what he is thinking. The younger brothers and sisters gather around and say they are hungry. Wei Shufang went to the house and learned that the children’s father Qiao Zuwang was still playing poker at this time, so he pulled him off the poker table aggressively, accusing his sister that she was giving birth in the hospital now, knowing that she was an elderly mother. Qiao Zuwang thought that what could happen to a woman when she gave birth to a child, she never thought that her wife would be in danger.

At the hospital, Wei Shuying gave birth to a thin boy, Wei Shufang was very worried, and Qiao Zuwang named him Qiqi. Qiao Yicheng was cooking for his younger brother and sister in the boiler room when he accidentally scratched his finger. At the same time, the doctors and nurses were suddenly busy. Wei Shufang was very worried about what happened to her sister, but Qiao Zuwang still didn’t take it to heart. The neighbors were very dissatisfied with Qiao Zuwang’s attitude, saying that Qiao Zuwang lived like a waste every day, poor Wei Shuying took care of him with a stomach, and went so far to give birth to a child in order to save money. Wei Shuying’s situation was not optimistic. The neighbors went home to pick up the children and went to the hospital to see their mother for the last time. After arriving at the hospital, the children only saw Qiao Zuwang pulling with the doctor, saying that it was just a baby and no one would be left. The younger siblings still didn’t understand their father’s words, and Qiao Yicheng knew that his mother had passed away.

Wei Shuying’s portrait is very simple. Thinking of her sister’s life in this life, Wei Shufang is very distressed. The neighbors asked the children to kowtow to their mother, the younger siblings could not cry themselves, only Qiao Yicheng remained silent. Qi Ziqiang also led Qi Weimin to pay homage to Wei Shuying, but he didn’t want to be told that he had thoughts about Wei Shuying, who used to contact Wei Shuying frequently when she was alive. Qiao Yicheng stepped forward and pushed the neighbor out, and finally burst into tears. Qi Ziqiang helped take care of the children, and Wei Shufang asked Qiao Zuwang to take care of the family in the future, after all, the children were still young. Qiao Zuwang said angrily that his life was suffering, and he had put in a lot of money in the past few days, which made Wei Shufang very angry. Wei Shuying will be cremated tomorrow, Qi Ziqiang and Wei Shufang both want to buy an urn to let their sister go in a decent manner, but Qiao Zuwang just doesn’t agree.

The next day, the hospital informed Qiao Zuwang to take Qiao Qiqi back. Qiao Zuwang didn’t want to give money, so he brought the children with him, and even plausibly said that he would keep Qiao Qiqi to pay off the debt, which made the nurse scold him as a rogue. The children were so frightened that they burst into tears. Wei Shufang and Qi Ziqiang came after hearing the news, handed over the money and took the children home. Wei Shufang made it clear that they lent the money to Qiao Zuwang and would have to pay it back in the future. Wei Shufang was very angry at Qiao Zuwang’s rogue behavior. They gave him money to buy an urn for Wei Shuying before, but Qiao Zuwang just bought the cheapest one and enjoyed the rest by himself.

Qiao Qiqi was born without a mother, and Qiao Zuwang refused to buy milk powder and milk for her, so he left him to Qiao Yicheng and went on his own. Qiao Yicheng had to feed Qiao Qiqi with rice soup, and Qiao Yicheng coaxed him when Qiao Qiqi cried at night. From beginning to end, Qiao Zuwang, the father, did not participate at all. The next day, Qiao Yicheng and Qiao Erqiang were going to school. They could only give Qiao Qiqi to Qiao Zuwang. Qiao Zuwang turned around and entrusted the child to his neighbor, Aunt Wu.

Qiao Zuwang returned a few dollars to Wei Shufang, saying that he was worried that he would not be able to support Qiao Qiqi, and hoped that Wei Shufang could help him support him. However, Wei Shufang’s family also has three children. Qiao Zuwang promised to give her seven yuan a month. Wei Shufang took Qiao Qiqi away and said that she would help him find a good family. Qiao Zuwang is still living a selfish life, and even an egg custard is only distributed to the children a little, and most of it goes into his stomach. Qiao Erqiang decided to exchange eggs for peach crisps, but did not want to be discovered by the security management, so he brought the chicken to the door. Aunt Wu took pity on the suffering of the children and made it clear for them, and finally the security officers agreed to let them kill the chickens. Qiao Zuwang went home and smelled the aroma and went to the pot to find chicken gizzards, but he didn’t want to be eaten by the children long ago. Qiao Zuwang thought it was Aunt Wu who stole things from his family and had a fight with others in the past. Qiao Yicheng took Qiao Sanli and Qiao Simei to devour at home, but Qiao Erqiang sat on the roof alone and cried.

The last few children were educated, and the neighbors gave them candy when they saw that they were pitiful. When Qiao Yicheng heard the news, he brought his younger siblings home and cleaned them up fiercely. He felt that as the eldest, he had the responsibility to educate his younger siblings to grow up.

Qiao Sanli was sick and had a fever, and Qiao Yicheng went to Qiao Zuwang to ask for money to treat her sister, but Qiao Zuwang was having a good time at the gambling table, so he didn’t take Qiao Sanli’s illness to heart at all.

When Qiao Zuwang came home, he locked Qiao Yicheng in the room and beat him. The three children lay outside the door and shouted not to beat their brother. Qiao Yicheng broke free from Qiao Zuwang’s restraint and ran out, and the children chased after seeing this. Qi Ziqiang learned that Qiao Yicheng was beaten and found him, and he felt distressed when he saw the scars on his body.

Uncle Li went to his house to find Qiao Zuwang and saw that only Qiao Sanli and Qiao Simei were there, so he sent Qiao Simei to buy things. Qiao Yicheng grabbed Qiao Erqiang and went home to teach him a lesson. He didn’t want to hear Qiao Sanli’s screams as soon as he arrived at the door. Qiao Yicheng and Qiao Erqiang rushed in and entangled with Uncle Li, and Uncle Li fled in a hurry. Qiao Yicheng told Qiao Zuwang that they saw Uncle Li bullying Qiao Sanmei with their own eyes. This time Qiao Zuwang finally took on the appearance of being a father and rushed out with a knife. Qiao Yicheng was looking forward to him being able to help Qiao San. Beauty seeks justice.

Qiao Zuwang bought two cages of steamed buns for Qiao Sanli, and Qiao Sanli said that she would bring back one cage for her brothers. Qiao Yicheng and several others were worried that Qiao Zuwang would send Qiao Sanli away, so they stood at the door and waited for them. Qiao Zuwang brought the buns back to the children, and everyone was very happy.

On the way back, Qiao Yicheng promised to accompany Wen Ju’an all the time, and let her not fall in love even after she went to college. Qiao Yicheng helped Wen Ju’an to move to a secluded place, but Wen Ju’an said he wanted her to go in by herself. Just as Qiao Yicheng was about to go home, he heard an exclamation from Wen Ju’an. He broke in and found a man holding Wen Ju’an. Qiao Yicheng immediately rushed up and beat the man, but was finally told that Wen Ju’an’s biological father. It turned out that Wen Ju’an’s parents were getting divorced. She didn’t want her father to leave, but wanted her family to stay together.

Qiao Erqiang has been obsessed with Ma Suqin since she saw Ma Suqin dressing up by the window. Before Qiao Yicheng got home, Qiao Simei and Qiao Sanli were talking about their two older brothers, saying that the most beautiful boy in their family was Qiao Qiqi. Qiao Qiqi has already gone to primary school, but unfortunately, her poor grades are often brought home by teachers. Qi Weimin brought fruit to visit Teacher Chang, but Chang Xingyu mistook him for Qiao Qiqi’s father.
