Rockstarism #205 – Dumping on Daddy


Rockstar: Daddy. Come help me look for ants. Get up, old man.

Kings: Did you just call me “old man”?!

Rockstar: Hee yeah. You keep lying down.


Me: So tomorrow’s Monday, Daddy’s going to work. Do you know what Daddy’s job is?

Rockstar: Policeman? <grins>

Me: Yeah you wish. Try again.

Rockstar: Daddy works in a bank.

Me: Do you know what Daddy does in the bank?

Rockstar: He gives people money.

Me: Where does he get the money to give people?

Rockstar: He gets the money from other people.

Me: You think your father is Robin Hood isit? He has to make money, how does he make the money?

Rockstar: He buys money from some people and sells it to (other) people.

(Ok, at some point I will have to explain derivatives to Rockstar… As a matter of principle haha)

Me: Well, that’s one way he can make money at his job I guess…

Rockstar: Policeman is cooler. 

Me: Umm… He might not make a good policeman, he might make a better bank guy… So if he does better he would make more money as a bank guy. We need money for stuff like school and a home and Lego.

Rockstar: Okay.

Me: Okay what?

Rockstar: He can work in a bank. We need Lego. 


Rockstar: Mum.

Me: Yeah?

Rockstar: <conversationally> Under Daddy’s desk….. Is a boogie! Hee.

Me: Does he know?

Rockstar: Nope.

Me: Are you going to tell him?

Rockstar: <shrugs> O-Kay.

Coming in from annoyed grossed-out sounds made by Kings outside…

Rockstar: Mum.

Me: Yes?

Rockstar: There’s a boogie on JD….

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.
