The Day After Tomorrow

Ho loves the disaster movie The Day After Tomorrow. He likes to watch it every once in awhile. This weekend he watched it again and left it on the shelf at a spot where it can easily be seen. Livie walked over to the shelf when she came down from her room this morning. After a minute, she said,

"The Day After Tomorrow is the end of the...

(Both Ho and I knew that she was scared of the movie. We were curious at what she'd say about it. However, she finished the sentence with:)


And she is right, it will be May 31st then. Kids, they are full of surprises.

My kids are funny!

1) Livie was curious about the hair volumizing cream which I bought recently.
Me: It works really well, it makes you look like you have a lot of hair.
Olivia: Can I try it too?
Me: Sure! Let me show you how to use it. First, you have to wash your hair, then squeeze some on your hand...
Olivia: When you put it on your hand, does it make you look like you have a lot of hands too?

2) The whole family was getting ready to go out. When we were at the door, Livie was getting impatient.
Olivia: Can I go out to the porch to wait?
Adrian: Go ahead Olivia, go to visit the Portugese!

3) Adrian was looking at a picture of Livie and Auntie D.  We said Livie looked very mature in the picture, like she was being interiewed by auntie.  Adrian started to pretend as if he was in an interview too:

"My life, began when I was born..."

4) Languages

Olivia: Mommy, I know 5 languages.
Mommy: Really?  That's great!  Which 5?
Olivia: I know French, English, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Chinese!
Adrian: Haha!  Olivia, Mandarin and Cantonese are both Chinese!  That means you only know 4!

Oh, I love listening to them talking to each other!
