It’s Teacher’s Day, a day to celebrate all educators – and a day when most childcare centres close. This time round, Daddy decided to take a day’s leave to spend time with Jay. Daddy brought him to the beach for a Burger King breakfast followed by some fun at the sandy beach!
For some reason, Jay decided to pick up these little casuarina seeds that littered the East Coast beach area.
Jay: Daddy, look how many acorns I have collected!
Daddy: Wow. There must be at least 70 here.
Jay: Yeah! I am going to collect them all and bring them home!
Daddy: No! You can’t bring them home.
Jay: Haha! I’m just joking.
Daddy: =.=” (and promptly messaged me this conversation via Whatsapp.)
I was so tickled by Jay’s response, I told the hubs to take a photo of him with the casuarina seeds so I can blog. And when Jay heard that, he decided to collect MORE seeds for me. And there you have it. And no, the seeds didn’t come home with Jay.
*Graphic details ahead, you have been warned*
Jay: Daddy, why do we need to open our legs for the poo poo to come out?
Daddy: That is where the poo poo is supposed to come out.
Jay: “Ok. So the backside is the poo poo house?”
*pauses and then continues*
Jay: Is it like someone wants to go shopping, they come out of the house? So poo poo wants to go shopping so they come out?
When the hubs told me his very interesting and talkative day with Jay, I must admit I was getting a little green with envy! Jay is at the age where he is engaging, responsive, inquisitive, and yes I admit he may be a tad draining, but I really won’t have it any other way.
Which is making me very glad we have booked a family vacation to Bangkok – and we’re leaving this Friday! A 3-night and 4-day trip with just Jay (with Xav stays back in Singapore with his grandma), and I am looking forward to some quality time with my soon-to-be-not-that-little prince!
