Don’t you just love the innocence of a child? Here are a few snippets of my encounters with my almost 2yr old boy.
One morning after getting out of bed, Jakub picked up his toy cellphone and said: “Babi, mlecinko is gone.” (Grandma, milk is gone)
To stop him from climbing the cabinet, I told Jakub: “Don’t climb this or mommy will be mad at you.” I then went to his bedroom to ventilate his windows. When I came back, he was already carrying a chair so he can open the cabinet. Knowing that it was still wrong, he looked guiltily at me as he exclaimed: “Mommy, ne mad at you.”
Tommy, Jakub’s cousin who is the same age as he, has blond hair. Whenever he sees blond-haired boys (which is 50% of all the boys in the playground), he calls them Tommy.
To lure him to sleep, I told Jakub that I will make palacinky when he wakes up. I then proceeded to ask: “Do you like palacinky?” He responded: “Ne. Ice cream”
Jakub calls our car “taxi” because he gets to sit in the back.
So I can do household tasks, I oftentimes let Jakub watch educational videos. On a Barney show, children were pointing at things and identifying what they were: “it’s a bird,” “it’s a rainbow,” “it’s a plane….” Jakub, tugging his diaper said: “It’s kaka (poop).”
Who needs to go to a comedy club when I have a comedian at home.
