Talking - Yesterday
After dinner Zara crawled to the TV cabinet in my sis' house yesterday. Touched some of the switches Pulled some of the wires Took her Wheels In the Bus VCD Handed me the VCD and said, "put, put, put, put, put", and then kept touching the TV screen. Did she just say "PUT?", or was it just coincidence? We never really taught her this word before, and we always say "Play" for VCD/DVD, never "Put". Anyway, it was time to go home, so I told, "We go home first, mummy will PUT for you at home" Back At Home Told Daddy about what happened ealier. Daddy: Zara mummy said you so clever, you know how to say PUT? Say again. PUT Zara : Put Put Put Put Put (Daddy clapped hands, Zara grinned) Daddy: Zara, say mum, mum, mum, mum, mum Zara : Mum, mum, mum, mum, mum.... (non stop) (wow, in the mood to talk) Daddy: Call Daddy then, Pa Pa Pa Pa Pa Zara : Pa Pa Pa Pa Pa (didn't look like she was directing this to Daddy) (I cannot tahan/stand any more, so I chipped in) Me : Zara, call mummy, Muh-mee, Muh-meee Zara : ...... (grinned) (Maybe too hard to call Mummy, let me try again) Me : Zara, say Mimi, mi-mi Zara : (immediately) Aao, Aao, Aao, Aao Me : Zara, Mummy is not a cat, say Mimi, MI MI Zara : Aao, Aao, Aao, Aao (non stop) Me : *roll eyes* Daddy : *Laugh* I don't know which part of me resembles a cat or a furry animal (which she also uses "AaO" on). Up till today, she still doesn't want to call me. Aigh.
