Rockstarism #361/ Miss-Speak #41 – What Happened To The Cute Animals

#361/ #41 Playtime in the Rockstar household... Rockstar: Mum. Look, I'm totally teaching the Miss to make stuff with her playdoh. She's pretty good, too! Me: That's great, whatcha working on? Rockstar: Intestines!  Me: Uh... Why can't you teach her something more... kid-ish. Rockstar: <blinks> Like what? Me: I don't know, cute animals or the smiling sun on Teletubbies or something. Rockstar: <like I'm the weird one> No. No, intestines. <firmly> See Miss, this is where the long ropes of intestines go, and then over them is your belly and the belly button...  (Miss giggles delightedly) Me: You guys are gross. Miss: Mummy. You don't have belly? Me: Yes I do. Miss: <conversationally> Ko-ko have belly? Miss have belly? Me: Everyone has a belly. It's just whether it's a big or small belly. Miss: <nodding theatrically> Oh. I seee.  Me: And you. Half the time I don't know if that's sarcasm or what...
Almost sure this one is sarcasm. Almost.

Almost sure this one is sarcasm. Almost.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  On Bumps to Babes run recently... Me: Go pick up your raisins, darling. Miss: Noooooo. Me: They're over there, pick a few packets up and put them in our basket. Miss: NOOOOOOO.  Me: ?? What? I thought you liked raisins. Miss: <theatrically> They not ro-sins! Oh Noo! <tragic hand wringing> THEY. BUGS!!!!! EEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!  Which prompts me to take a closer look:
OK. Packaging FAIL.

Packaging FAIL.

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.

    Hahaha, packaging failed. They should really test market their products with children before using such packaging.

    I thought she really fell asleep while eating. So it was a fake sleep, was it?

    Rockstar can’t help himself but teaches his sister those serious stuffs I guess but it is all good, she will grow up knowing a lot of facts.

      No no she IS totally asleep, I’m the one being funny… I don’t think the stuff Rockstar teaches her will be very useful for awhile more, especially since he teaches her what he wants – so instead of alphabets (many of which she still appears not to be able to recognise – I’m not too fussed about that, Rockstar only really started that in earnest in K2) we are looking at building cubes and pyramids, stuff like that…
