Another Dose of Little Conversations

Me: You know I love you.
T: But you didn't pick me up today.
It put things into perspective now. Love means, picking him up at school or taking him there. That makes sense. That's our arrangement at home, if I take him to school, Daddy picks him up.


T: I missed you when you were at work.
Me: Me too!
T: I wasn't at work, I was at school.
This just cracks us up.


Lately, when he wants something and we won't give in, he'll say "oh well, you can't come to my party".

I thought of a trick answer and tells him that I won't go to his party (not somewhere near Branson vacations, of course) and just go to the shops, library or park.

He would then ask me if I want to go to his party now.


He's really very sweet. Even when I'm in the middle of cooking or doing anything, he'll come up to me and tell me, he wants to give me cuddles.

He's fond of giving me kisses all over my face.


I've been telling him stories of my childhood and he memorised them already. For some nights, I have to tell him about it at least 5 times. When I forgot a scene, he gladly tells me that I didn't say it. Lol.

This is The Tatapilla's platybank. We have piggybank and CBA has platybank for their junior customers. The CBA has a display of platybank in the centre of the deposit counter area and every time we go there to deposit his money, he will say, that's my platybank. At once, he didn't even want to leave as he wants to take it home with him.



MM - Posing

The Tatapilla owns two bikes but when we went to his Auntie's house, he loved this bike so much that he is willing to give away his old bike for it. Even if you see, the bike in the photo is really the old model and looks rusty. I think kids don't really think of how good or shiny (like metal buildings) it looks rather, how functional it is. You see, this bike is about his size and he can manage it real well even in grass.

TV isn't bad

and we don't ban it in our household. In fact, The Tatapilla watches all the telly programs that we see, from sports, news, movies, etc.. and although at some point, there should be some scenes that he is not allowed, we are there to teach him the lesson and give him advice. At the end of the day, it all boils down to tv programs that the parents are watching.

We also watch The Tatapilla's dvd shows with him and enjoy it. When there are some interesting artifacts on telly, we encourage him to see it (even ads such as whole house water filter).
TV for tots isn’t all bad, says Duncan Fine, and the right choices can be positively inspiring - for you and them.

There are few ways to get parents confused, fingers wagging and eyebrows raised than to talk about kids and television. Should they watch any at all? Should parents set limits like one hour a day? Or is that too much? Or too little? After all, why can’t kids (like their worn-out parents) just flop down after a long day and enjoy a little down-time in front of the box?

When it comes to our kids, to borrow from a bloke named Shakespeare, TV or not TV; that is the question. Studies have shown that Australian children begin watching television from an early age, with an average of 44 minutes at 4 months building to 2 1/2 hours a day by 4 years. Ultimately it’s for every parent to use their own judgement but sometimes it can be difficult because it seems everyone you talk to has a different opinion.
