Children absorb a lot of information. The thing is, you just do not know what information they are absorbing.
A 2 1/2 year old boy is learning everyday– and we are talking the basics. Now add in explaining INDIA to him. Tonights conversation.
Me: HBT, next week we will get on a plane. We will see GrandKat and PawPaw.
HBT: Love PawPaw and Grandkat
Me: Yes, I love them to. We will talk rugs. We get on another plane.
HBT: Plane, where?
ME: IN-DI-A, IN-DI-A, India
Me: Yes. India. We will see monkeys.
Me: We will see elephants, cows, trucks and rugs.
HBT: I ride elephant. Ride a monkey. Ride a Zebra.
Me: Zebra’s are in Africa. You might ride a Elephant. Would you ride a camel?
HBT: No Camel. Elephant
Me: Where are we going to see an elephant.
HBT: Inddia. Ride painted trucks. (saying with eyes half shut and in a soft sleepy voice.
Me: yes. Good night. Sweet Dreams.
As the rain falls in LA, my sweet 2 1/2 year old son, feel asleep to cows, trucks, and elephants. I wonder if his dreams of Inddia are as amazing as real India.
I think it’s time to find the move The Little Princess. Wonderful imaginary stories from a little girls mind.
