How kids grow up fast. I caught Raul told his two years old sister "How many times do I have to say this Lisa, share the toys. Dont play alone!"(in an stern voice). Well, i'm sure u can guess where he learnt that from. Then, in another situation, I heard Lisa told Raul to "flush the toilet Raul. Wash your hands!" Hmmm...And they played and chatted to each other for hours! Nonstop! Not a moment of silence. I'm not sure, are they born to be talkative? Or we (the parents) make them into talking machines. Dont get me wrong. Of course I love it. But there are times when you just cant take their annoying questions and comments! Well, maybe cos i dont have the answers to all their questions or too moody to think of an answer. Just a while ago Lisa asked me "Mum, can i have a Ezra please?" Well, i told her not to pinch Ezra's earlobes. She likes to do that!
I do provide them with an answer or comment most of the time. At other times, I would ask them to tell me the answers cos they ask something that they already know! haha..
Raul likes to ask me the meaning of each new word he picks up from the cartoon. He would also ask me to spell the word. I'm not a perfect mother. I dont force my kids to learn the alphabets or numbers but i will tell them the letters and numerical symbols whenever we come across them on the tv, magazines, car plate numbers, things around the home etc. It seems that they learn better that way. They can associate the alphabets and the words with the things around them. Very unsystematic but very practical. That must be why my kids are so curious on every thing they see and hear. cos we are like that too. Whenever we see anything we will ask them or describe to them abt it. hmm...like children like parents.
Ok, this is out of the topic. I read and watched abt Shah Rukh Khan being detained for abt 2 hours in Newark airport because of his name 'Khan'. Hmm...dont laugh at me but i'm his fan. Pity him. haha...NO, i dont cry or angry abt it. Just shocked. So, i'm looking forward to his new movie "My name is Khan" then. What a coincidence?! Sure they dont do this for publicity? Well, anyway, i still like him. Ok, now u can laugh at me.
