Having a child is the greatest gift.. i wonder why.. until i experience it my own.. raising a child.. seeing them grow in front of you.. the way they change.. their behavior and physical appearance.. getting taller without realizing it until their pants are too short for them.
The way they learn to make sentences… and how they learn to copyright what you said.. being our own shadow sometimes.
My son pick up sentences a bit slow but i thank God that he managed to read at the age of six.. i owe it to the teacher.. and to the school.. and Sean himself for being able to cope with that. I love to listen when my children have their conversation.. I make sure they talk to each other.. and when they talk to me … i will listen.. and i always give them chance to give their own opinion.
Everyday they pick up lines..not only from mummy and daddy.. but also from friends and teachers in school also from TV.. no doubt about that. Well here are just a few line that i will always love to remember having heard from them :
I was teaching Chrissa how to answer if somebody asked her how old she is….
Mummy : ‘Chrissa how old are you’?
Chrissa : ‘ I am 3 o’clock’
Okay i guess.. when it comes to number.. she will always remember the time.. LOL.
There were times.. me and hubby talking and laughing.. she was in the center looking at us.. we have forgotten about her actually.. she said ‘excuse me, what are you two talking about ah.. is that a jokes’... we actually pause and look at each other… blurr trus.. hehe
The time when i got really mad at her.. .. and when i cool down a bit.. she come to me..‘mummy you marah me or not?.. but i love you’.. i said.. ‘i marah you because you don’t listen to mummy.. but i love too’… she replied…’i love you three’.…
When i make mistakes.. she will say… ‘you silly old mummy’…mmm i know where this come from… Darby says this to Pooh Bear… ‘you silly old bear’
Last Saturday we went to CTMall, Chrissa wanted a lipstick.. so i just give her a lipgloss.. she took one.. but undecided… she came to me with another lipgloss in her hand.. i said.. ‘you have to choose either one and keep the other one back to the shelf’… i was searching something..when i turned .. i looked at her.. she was talking to a customer… and i heard she said..‘can you keep this back’..giving the lady the lipgloss’… waduh…
Sean is the big brother type.. if i make mistakes or say words wrongly.. he will say…’eh mummy bukan … ..’ he loves to giggle… i learn his style.. .to make him do something..i just need to apply a bit of jokes..to make it interesting.
Whenever his daddy asked Sean.. if he have any homework.. he will reply his daddy in Mandarin… and we have no choice but to watch Mickey Mouse and most cartoon in Mandarin… thanks to the language setting the ASTRO invented..
I always remind my hubby to be careful of what he says to the children or to anybody in front of the children.. they will copyright and make use of the word.
Lately.. they have been very helpful.. Sean wants to help wash the dishes.. but he not only washing plates…the copper sinks and the floor wet..wet..wet..
They help me hang their shirts with the hangers.. and put their fold cloths in their own drawer..but don’t expect to have it neat.
I am sure you have you own experience with your young children.. its just wonderful..wonderful..and unforgettable experience.
