Being the super laid-back Mom that I am, I never really emphasize academic education on my children. Other kids recognize 123, go to playschool, sings ABC, but not mine.
Yeah...Sebenarnya, I ni mak malas. And I also let my son use the iPad.
Me: Abang K, what are you watching? Tengoklah ABC, 123, Alif Ba Ta!
Him: Nooooooooo!!! Tak nak pergi school! Nak work like Mommy and Daddy!
But, I did have high hopes. I used to imagine I would be some kind of super mom. I bought all these flash cards but I never used them.
Earlier this week, my son was bored. I was bored. Then, I found the unopened boxes! He got excited. My niece jadi sibuk, as usual.
Niece: Abang K, what's this?
Niece: What's this?
Niece: Okay, what's this?
Niece: No, this is number five lah...
I totally didn't have any expectation whatsoever, so, you can imagine how my jaw dropped.
Now I know that he knows, but chooses to pretend to not know!
Even though I should not take credit for his intelligence (beause I never really taught him), I was a proud Mommy nevertheless!
Yeay! Can't believe I got really, really excited over this. It's not amazing because he's already 3 years old, but...but...What a delightful surprise!
