Ceci n’est pas une pipe… And yeah, I guess he wasn’t supposed to touch that. (He pretended it was a giant trumpet.)

And thus, the world of arcades was introduced to this 5-year old’s life… #whathaveidone #ximending

Look me!

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.

because I like everyone (duh)

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.
