Sometimes we learn so much from kids. As an adult we sometimes forget that kids are so smart and learn so much from their environment.
I mostly feel that Chhori is very small and forget that she already knows so much. She surprised us when she stared to join our conversations. Whenever AS or I ask a question to each other, if she knows the answer, she will say it. Sometimes it has caught us off guard but we love it as it beings a smile to both of our faces.
Lately we are giving her a lot less screen time so she can play with her toys and be active more. It is working well except that sometimes she will say “TV please mama”. I see her pretend play with her cars, teddies and dolls. It is so interesting and surprising at the same time as she repeats things that we say to her like ” No baby ” or ” Eat more please” etc.
Yesterday, both AS and I were on our phones updating our grocery list and Chhori was dancing to one of her rhymes and suddenly she came to us and said “No phone mama”. I didn’t quite get it at first but when she said it again, I did and put my phone down. Then she went to AS and said, “No phone papa.” He obliged and she instructed both of us to stand up and start dancing with her.
Both of us could not help but laugh as that is what we usually tell her and now she was reminding us of that.
I am loving being a parent to this smart little cutie pie.
Do share any unexpected conversation by your kids. I am sure there are some fun and embarrassing ones too.
Have a great day everyone.
