Anticipating Pre-school…

Hello hello my lovelies! I know it’s been a wee while (my last post was in June eek!) but I hope you are all enjoying the warm September. Now, this is a spur-of-the-moment post which came to my mind earlier today so here goes…   Continue reading


We have Words!

Our little one has recently achieved a developmental milestone. Firstly she seemed to have embraced her room as hers – she told me the other day “this is my room, come have a look“. She’s also become more comfortable with potty training (this is seriously yearning for a post), tantrums have reduced and can count 1 – 100. I do talk to her alot and I’ve heard that helps improve their vocabulary however the change still seem a bit sudden, she’s got so much to that hubster is convinced I was the same way at her age (which I don’t dispute ah!)

As of two weeks ago, she still used many of her phrases out of context like “what’s the big idea!” from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse – Donald Duck but now she screams these words out if you happen to block her view of anything she might be interested in.

She still rambles sometimes – either repeating phrases she hears from YouTube/TV or making up stories about “look a cat! In the jungle” (jungle being the bush behind our apartment). Below are some of her recent phrases for your reading pleasure😃

“Let’s tidy up!”

“I can’t find it either”

“Can you help us?”

“Can I have my hug/kiss?”

“Oh so cute” (while nuzzling at my face)

“Hey guys!” (bursting into room)

“Are you coming mummy?”

“Give me 2 mins ok”

“I don’t like it”

“Let’s charge the tablet”

“Biscuit! Face the wall” (we graduated from naughty steps)


“That’s not the point!” (making hand gestures – Kung Fu Panda)

“Say ahhh! huh that doesn’t look good… hmmm that’s the problem” (Peso from Octonauts)

Everyday I look forward to her random moments of awesomeness which I sometimes record (check out my Instagram page for evidence) or just enjoy the moment… She is almost 3 years old which explains the development however nothing prepares you for the emotions you feel when your toddler slowly morphs into a child, her siblings might not be as lucky haha!

So I would love to hear from you – What words are your toddlers speaking? first reactions? emotions felt? please share below in the “comment” section and let’s muse over them…

Thanks for stopping by folks and have a great week ahead 😀
