When he wants to be good... Rockstar practicing feeding himself with chopsticks...


Rockstar: Mum. We can go to the bookstore after my nap. Me: You mean the bookstore you didn't want to go to because you were sulking? Rockstar: Yeah. I cooled down already. Me: But I haven't. I'm still angry with your behavior. So how? Rockstar: Then I'll wait. After you cool down, call me.


Me: You can pick more books at the bookstore as a treat later Rockstar: Why, what did I do? Me: Remember I asked you to let Mum n Daddy have a discussion without you interrupting because Daddy hasn't been home for dinner all week? Rockstar: Oh yeah. Also, I turned down the sound on the videos (of himself that he watches) on (my) iPhone when you were talking.


(Looking at picture in book)

Rockstar: This is... A giraffe. 2 zebras. 5 elephants.. And a weird animal I haven't seen before..

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    The chopsticks sure look very long. Perhaps some training chopsticks will be more handy. What is the weird animal that he is referring to?

      rhino. Could’ve sworn he’d seen some in zoos but… he forgets stuff pretty fast… but well he can pick up some really amusing things fast too…

      Rockstar shuns most “kiddie aids” now – strollers, high chairs (though he will occasionally use “chopstick men,” that rubber thing for joining chopsticks tog… i used to carry a bunch of stuff around but nowadays since he proved adaptable to whatever the grownups use, i just leave him to use whatever we use…

        Guess Rockstar can’t wait to be a grown up! 🙂
