Seems like ages since my last post. Oops! Here's a recent pic of our little boy =)
He is growing up real fast! Here's some interesting conversational moments:
Daddy & Son were happily playing in the room when Little Fella spotted an insect...... (those little bugs that are attracted to lights bulb..)
Son: Look Daddy! An insect! ( expecting daddy to go and catch it )
Dad: Yes son? ( walked over and stare at the insect intentionally, expecting son to run off for a tissue (as usual) and to pass it to daddy for "the catch".
Son: < still happily playing with the toy cars and wanted daddy to rejoin him soon >
Son: Daddy, catch it with your (bare) hands!
Dad: No, I don't want to catch it with my (bare) hands. Can I have a piece of tissue please?
Son: < pondered for three seconds between getting the tissue or to continue playing >
Son: Daddy, you can get the tissue on your own!
Son: < continue to play with his toy cars >
Dad: < stunned by son's replies >
Conclusion: Your kids will know and weigh their options before they turn three...
Mummy and Son were in the living room with the little boy busy playing with his toys as usual. It was a hot and humid day and Mummy was seating on the sofa complaining about the weather...
Mom: Aaaragh! I can't stand (the weather)!
Son: Mummy what happened?
Son: < thought Mummy can't "stand" as in "standing up">
Son: < proceeded to pull mummy's hand >
Son: Mummy can you try (to stand up)?
Mom: < laughing away and trying to explain the differences... >
Son: Mummy, can you try your best (to stand up)?
Dad: < In the kitchen having a drink and happen to overhear the conversation >
Conclusion: Your kids will show genuine concerns for you when they are young, provided they know what is happening!
