Rockstarism #205 – Dumping on Daddy

#205 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.
