a batch of books i ordered online arrived yesterday and i couldn't wait to show them to rafael when i was back home last night. i was holding up two eric carle books and rafael immediately said "art class 有... 一樣" (art class had... the same) while pointing at one of them.
i was really shocked -- that's the very hungry caterpillar we read at the art class more than 3 weeks ago and rafael hasn't seen the book anywhere else... omg rafael, what else could have been stored in your little brain my dear? that mommy and daddy had a fight weeks ago?
glad that i haven't passed you my forgetful genes.
and then while we're playing cars on the mat, grandma was telling me that rafael met an expat boy at the bus stop in the morning. who else could have thought that the little ears could pick up our conversation in the background and proudly told mama the new vocabulary he has just learnt? "mama, 鬼仔 (gwei-chai)".
attention daddy, grandparents, uncles, aunties, and myself:
we really really must watch what we do and say every second now!!!
