Miss Speak #58 – Money Doesn’t Grow On Trees, But…….

#58 Miss: Mummy I want to be a tiger. Me: You mean dress up as a tiger. Miss: No, I mean I want to be a real tiger.  Me: Well... You're a little girl, that's better - you can dress up as a tiger or a mermaid or whatever you want. Miss: I don't want to dress up, I want to BE a real tiger. <plaintively> How come I'm not a tiger, Mum? How come Ko-Ko is not a tiger?? Me: Well, you were born human. To human parents. Some may disagree but I think that's a bit better. Tigers don't get Youtube or candy. Miss: How come? Me: How many tigers do you see watching TV or eating candy in the zoo or jungle? Miss: Maybe in trees? Maybe they get candy in the tree? And tv? Me: You think candy and TV grow on trees? Miss: I think... I think... They eat the candy when they're..... When they're in the tree........ <trails off> I don't want to be a tiger. I want to be the other tiger. Me: Girl dressed as tiger. For Halloween and stuff? Miss: Yes. Me: Excellent.
Ok, maybe not so excellent

Ok, maybe not so excellent

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.
