look me, Look Me, LOOK ME, LOOK MEEEE mummy!
I still have to remind attention-seeking S that it’s “Look at me” and not “Look me.” I believe this grammatical mistake stems from him being more used to saying 你看我！ in Chinese, where of course prepositions do not exist.
I thought I would start chronicling some of the silly things that S says.
The other day, we ran into a classmate of his on the street with her mom. I later asked who that was.
S: That’s Liu Zhilong. She doesn’t like me! [Says this while smiling.] Me: Oh, why is that?
S: I dunno.
Me: That’s okay, not everyone likes everyone else. Do you like her?
S: Yes! [Looks at me like I’m stupid.] I like *everyone*, Mummy!
I like how 4-year olds think.

We went to our first school Christmas show the other day, organized by the Bunny International Daycare. The kids were encouraged to wear whatever costumes they wanted, whether they were Christmas-related or not. It was total chaos, but fun! Here are some pics of the event, and a short little video at the end:
