Lil’ Teacher

XY likes to correct us when we don’t use the right words. It can be funny... or irritating, depending on our mood. :)

Scene 1
One day, she came home from kindy and told me she ate her classmate’s Honeystar. After further interrogation, I found out that her classmate didn’t offer them to her and she took them without asking.
Me : Taking other people’s things without asking for permission is like stealing. And if you steal, the police will put you in a cage.
XY : No lar mummy. Jail... cage is for animals.

Scene 2
In the bathroom, giving her a bath.
Me : XY, wipe your face with the towel.
XY : This is not towel... hanky.

Scene 3
We went to McD for lunch. I bought Happy Meal which has corns. Gave her the grilled chicken burger first.
XY : Mummy, I want to eat corns.
Me : Finish your bread first, then only can eat corns.
XY : Not bread, burger lar.

Rachel, I think all parents will go thru the 'lil teacher' phase. :D
Jazz, haven't tried that b4. But she'll giggle like mad when I call her 'uncle', 'grandma', 'monkey', etc.
