Children have a way with words, don’t they? The things they say at times can be so funny.
Max is no exception. He loves to sing this song:
Your areOnly my sunshine, my only my sunshine.
You make me happy, when skies are
‘llnever know dearnotice, how much I love you. (Pointing at me)
Please don’t take my sunshine away.
Although some of the words are not quite right, one can understand what he is trying to say, and his voice is so angelic! The song is also followed by a hug. ❤
Pulling up a chair, he sat in front of me and said:
I’m going to tell you a story. Once upon a time, there was a purple cow, who’s friend was a sheep. The sheep went to the purple cow’s house. Now that’s not the end of the story mummy, OK? So, just wait there…
As you’ve probably guessed, I am is still waiting to hear the rest of the story… 😀
Not one to teach my son about colour/race, as I am teaching him everyone is equal, this one was really random. I have no idea where he got it from!
Mummy, you’re black, I’m yellow, the police are white and so are doctors.
There are a lot of road and building works going on at the moment. With a puzzled look on his face, Max says to me:
Mummy, are they fixing the country?
I think perhaps Little Yum-Yum may have been watching the news behind my back!
When he is being naughty, and I am trying to have a chat with him, he sometimes switches from English to Spanish. He finds it hilarious when I ask him to speak in English, as he knows I do not understand everything he is saying. Can’t be upset with him though, he has such a charming smile.
The main thing is, he is developing well, and is encouraged to express himself, to explore, to use his imagination, to just enjoy being a child.
But most importantly, he is encouraged to be himself.
