Well, a new day is always a clean breath of fresh air and getting down to what has to be done in my day...
Today I am so astounded by the words that our toddler is eloquently, I dare say myself, vocalising, if there is such a word?
He has managed to master English concepts so quickly, I sometimes wonder who has secretly been teaching him grammatical and literary concepts behind my back. The rogue, probably hubby, but we shall let that lie a little and stew...
One such incident was when his dear Daddy bought some thing delicious for the two of them and he said: 'Did Daddy buy one for two of us?' And after tilting is head for just a breath of a second, this little three year old corrected himself and said: '...for each of us..'?
WOOOOWWEEEE. My jaw nearly dropped and then couldn't because the suppressed giggle surfaced full force and I was like...'Stop the Truck!...'did you hear what my baby said?' With only Hubby in the room, it was highly doubtful that he didn't but I was still like...'STOP THE TRUCK PEOPLE....MY BABY SAID 'EACH...!''
These moments come so fast and so furiously that as I sit here writing them down I can only just barely remember the sequence of events...one thing I do remember though is that I was the MOST EXCITED one of all..you see I love English and it is one of my hobbies, as such, if you can call it that, so for me it was like our little boy was just capturing Mummy's heart every time he said something really special like that.
Another such moment came when I accidently turned a page of his storybook a little too roughly and I almost tore the bottom of the page...and he said quite reprovingly...'Be careful Mummy, you are going to RUIN it.' And I was like...'PEOPLE! STOP THE TRUCK....! MY BABY SAID RUUUUIIIIINNNNN'
