Potty and manners

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingIt was a one week half term holiday last week. All the kids at home and happy that they can get up late.

So suddenly feeling like a good mom. I thought why not potty train JackJack. I rolled up the carpets for unwanted spills, which are aplenty on the first two days. Benda nilah yang malas nak layan bebudak ni. On the third and the fourth day, he responded when I urge him to pee on the scheduled time. And soon after he began to understand the feeling of wanting to pee.

And this week he shouted "Ibuuuu, Jack nak tintin!! (Jack wants to pee!!).

So yayyy. *flip

But of course I have not been very discipline about it. He still wears diapers going to sleep and when we go out. But then again, I am in no hurry. Just going with the flow. My flow.

The other thing, Jackjack, surprisingly, loves his please and thank yous.

Buu, Jack nak thuthu, please buuu. (Jack wants milk pleassseee)

Jack nak power rangers please buu (Jack wants power rangers please buu)

Boleh Jack nak biskut please (Jack wants biscuits please)

and when you give him biscuit for example, he would say thank you bu.

He made me melt that way. Even when I don't really want to give him susu (milk) or biscuit, and he said pleeeaasssee with his smiling pleading eyes, little button nose and slight pouting lips, I would just give in. Gua cair babe. Cair!

My lover said I am so lembik with him.

Where did he get that? These thank yous and please anyway? I don't think it's me. Seriously, he he, I don't think I have that much of a manners. I don't remember saying please. More like "Sya ambik baju tu lipat cepat!!(Sya pick up your mess).

While we are on that note, somebody commented about Batrisyia. That she wondered why is it that Batrisyia is so soft spoken and so sweet mannered. Surely not from me. I am after all, quoting the screwboy, an epitome of loudness. (In this case my friends, I am not angry with her. She is my friend..so it's ok)

Lacking in manners and also a walking hailer.

I suppose not all traits go down to your children eh?

Good for Jack for acquiring the please and thank yous.

And I don't think you are harsh in anyway with your words. It's just that sometimes we the Asians are not that smooth in saying those due to our subculture is as such. Deep down we are more thankful than others who said it out loud. Right?

Samelah macam anak saya yang no. 2 tu dulu, cakap pleaseeeeee sambil jari2 dia dok buat macam orang ucap kong he fat choy tu (patutnya jari2 dirapatkan dan ditegakkan macam bila orang buat sembah 'daulat tuanku')

Entah mana dia org dapat tu, dari cartoon kot...
