What is this shiny green thing?
it must bring something amazing
Decorated Christmas Tree is something magical. For children’s eyes, it must be a real magic tree especially when they find presents under the tree. I am grown up, but I have always loved Christmas Tree.
I can swing back and forth
on my own!
I have been pushing my son’s back whenever he wants to ride a swing. He simply didn’t know how to get moving. Recently, he finally got it! He is swinging back and forth with his legs. The smile on his face tells me his confidence and satisfaction. For me as a mother, one more step to see my son being independent.
Open the book,
then you will see the world
where you have never been
I moved to a new house about two month ago, and since then there is no TV in the house. It started as a lazy act of postponing mounting a TV on the wall. Then, I notice that my son asks me to read books more often since he doesn’t watch TV at all. So I decided to keep TV in the storage. Books will open the door to the world he has never seen before.
Look, look, look at it, mom!
My son was saying “Look, look, look at it, Mom!” with excitement. I ran to him not to miss his enthusiasm and get close to what he wanted to show me. Then, I found out that he wanted to show his booger. I am so proud of his eagerness to show me what he found with a slight feeling of “eeeks”.
Ah! Monkey box
What’s in it?
Grocery shopping takes twice longer if you are accompanied by your little one (especially toddler/preschooler). My son wants to examine products he sees, and touch them. I have to watch what he does and warn him constantly “Don’t touch anything, Please” while I am shopping. A potential disaster can happen at the store, if I don’t pay enough attention to my busy little shopper.
Mom, can you make sand castles, again?
I made sand castles on the beach. My son was really happy, then he stepped on them saying “crash! crash?”. Then with big smile he asked me, “Mom! Can you make sand castles again?” – We repeated this at least three times. I should be grateful to make sand castles so many times!
Picked by hand
Packed with love
I had a delivery box says “Picked by hand. Packed with LOVE”. It was just one of ordinary box. But when my son sat in it, the ordinary box became a lovely object with a meaningful message. I found it very cute, but I could be just a strange mom ;).
Jason is a robot
mom is a happy lion
what are you?
I am a happy boy
One of toddler talk I had to write down because it was so sweet. Children’s imagination and free thinking are something we want to embrace and cheer.
Toilet got flooded
Father had to clean it
found out, a toy truck was clogging the toilet
Be aware of a toddler in the bathroom
One of most unpleasant things you have to deal with is clogged toilet. It happened one day and it was a big mess. This kind of work usually falls on to an adult man, “Father”, in the house (Thank you, Daddy!). He had to take out the toilet to unclog the toilet. What he found was a toy truck clogging it.
Be aware of a toddler with a toy, especially in the bathroom.
