"Row row row your boat, gently down the stream. If you see a crocodile don't forget to scream....Aaaaaaah!"
That's my background music while typing this post. In fact, my day is not complete without hearing nursery rhymes with my 19-month toddler. If I don't hear it playing, my little me will be singing it for sure. Every morning, she woke up singing whatever she feels like singing. ABC song, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Wheels on the bus, and so on and so forth. Around 17-month old, it will be some sort of name that tune because she still do not know the lyrics. But nowadays, oh my, I am gasping my breath just to sing-a-long with her.
It's so amazing to see babies grow and learn things. Their brains are really like sponges absorbing everything. At one time, they are just watching and at a turn, they are already copying what they saw. And once they became toddlers that means more energy for us parents.
At this stage in my daughter's life, I need eyes at the back of my head. She keeps on exploring and experimenting on things around her. Climbing here and there. Opening drawers and cabinets again and again and again and again until you hear... waaaaaah!!! (For sure naipit na yun.) We indeed child-proofed our home but there are few furnitures that we chose not to lock. We just want to leave room for her to explore and discover. Like in the kitchen, I put her cooking/kitchen toys in one of the drawers. Initially, she don't get the idea that it's the dedicated drawer for her and to not open the other drawers. But later on, she got it. So when I'm cooking, she's just there beside me making her own business with safe things to play with. ( By the way, while we're in the kitchen we are still singing. Whew! )
So many things for my child to learn and for me also as a first time mom. For moms out there, any tips would be appreciated.
Have a blessed Friday.
