Wait 5 minutes please

As usual I am learning a lot of new lessons in being a parent. I have heard a million times from parents to never say any secret or embarrassing stuff in front of your child because they will repeat it at the most awkward of times.

So we try to be very careful about what we say in front of Chhori. Now that she has started to speak more she tends to repeat whatever we say.

The other day AS was joking and said, “Sexy mama” and immediately Chorri said, “Sexy Sexy Sexy”. When I told to her not to say it she was even more amused and repeated it another few times. We could not help but laugh. Our daughter is definitely growing up.

So I learned that, not only do they learn and repeat embarrassing stuff easily, they also learn everything.

The other day when we were in a department store I told Chhori, “Lets go” and she said, “5 minutes please”. At first I couldn’t believe what she had said so I repeated myself and she did too and that was exactly what she had said. AS was just around the corner and hadn’t hear our conversation. I told him what Chhori said and he didn’t believe me at first but when we tried to leave, Chhori clearly said again, “5 minutes please”.

We used to use that phrase a lot with her when she asked for something and we were in the middle of something so now she has started to do it a lot more now.

“Chhori come out, lunch is ready”

“5 minutes please”

“We are going out now, put on your shoes”

“5 minutes please ”

So you get the idea. Now our life revolves around her 5 minutes 😊😊😊

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Take care.

  1. This is a good phrase which means you and you husband are very good parents. It shows awareness of letting your child know you will be leaving soon. I used to say, “5 minute warning.” It let my three children know to hurry up and choose a book, if at library, or get their shoes, backpack and coat on if leaving soon for school. 😊

  2. Hahah so cute! Smart little girl 🙂
