I have found talking with 2-3 year olds can be hilarious sometimes. Here are some of the things Kah Yen has said. I want to record them all down before I forget.
(1) Miss Teh Kah Yen
We are reading a book together. There is a picture of a happy little girl on the page.
Me: Look! It is a little girl. She looks so happy. How about you Kah Yen? Are you a happy girl?
KY: I am not a girl. I am Miss Teh Kah Yen.
(2) It's a sunny day
We stayed in a two-bedroom villa during our one week holiday in Bali last week. Kah Yen slept on her own on a single bed in a separate room. It is lower than a normal bed so she can get up and down easily herself. We kept both bedroom doors open so we can hear her when she woke up.
I was dreaming when I heard footsteps in our bedroom. I opened my eyes. It's Kah Yen and the clock shows 7am.
Me: Kah Yen, it's only 7am! You woke up so early?
KY: It's a sunny day.
There goes my dream of catching back my one year short of sleep during this one week holiday.
(3) Old Macdonald
Me: Kah Yen, quick! Wear your shoes, we are going to Macdonald's to eat Pancake!
KY: Old Macdonald had a farm?
Yes, and we are going to eat the chicken on his farm too. I was almost gonna say.
Kah Yen had two best friends in school. Their names are Timothy and Isabel. So this is what happened when I was reading her the children's bible the other day.
Me: Today's bible verse is from 1 Timothy. It is a letter written to Timothy.
KY: How about Isabel?
Me: ... ...
Someone please tell me how to answer her!
