March 9, 2013

Little Miss Bossy has found a new hobby lately. She’s decided she wants to be ‘Teacher Jenny’ (the teacher who used to teach her when she was at daycare).

Becks: Mama, sit down!

Me: Ok…

Becks: I’m going to read to you ah. This book is ‘One Fish Two Fish’.

Reading One Fish Two Fish

Mama sit down

Becks: Fish swim like this (makes action with two hands)

Reading more to Mama

Becks: And fish can drive

Reading to Mama

Me: Yes, and so says Dr Seuss… (listening as she rambles on about fish for a few minutes)

Becks: Ok, now we sing a song. SING! All the fishes swimming in the water… (she switches from English to Chinese playtime songs about fishes).

Me: All the fishes swimming in the water…

Becks: Hey, Mama! DO WITH ME THE ACTIONS! (hollers at me while the brother watches in amusement)

Me: Right…

Actions for song

Singing Yu Er Yu Er

Ben: Hahahaha! Mama is Becks’ student! Hahahaha!

    She’s so animated in the photos, and I love the bemused look on Ben’s face in the first photo. Your husband did a great job taking the pics!
