Life's Little Surprises

Kids can surprise you when you least expected it. I went to pick my children up from the babysitter yesterday after work. I had this conversation with my babysitter..

Babysitter: You're coming back late from work tomorrow right?

Me: Yeah. Eh, how did you know?

Babysitter: Elizabeth told me.

Me: Eh, but I didn't tell her.

Babysitter: She told me that you will come back late from work tomorrow. Her father will pick her up instead. She said you got buka puasa.

Me: LOL. Yeah that's true but I was planning to tell you now. I never told her. She must've eavesdrop on my conversation with my husband.

Way to go my little messenger. All this while I thought she was just busy reading, playing toys or in her own world. I never knew she was eavesdropping. She surprised me. What's even more surprising was she said buka puasa. LOL. Lets all hope she won't be delivering my darkest secret to my babysitter one day!

I had another little surprise yesterday too that I had to get it on video..(turn on the volume louder, Joseph's voice sounds like a mouse when he knows he's being recorded, must be shy)

I've never taught him the numbers 1 to 10 actually. Only if you count numbers 2, 8 and 9 because those are the levels we frequent at the place we stay. I'm really not sure where he picked up from because my babysitter said she never really taught him too. Or maybe he paid attention when I read the book to him. And I thought he didn't. LOL. So it's again another surprise for me. It looks like my little dahling here is interested in numbers. :)

Can't wait for the next surprise they're going to give me..;)


  1. Wah your boy very clever!!
    Haha, now I better be careful with what I tell my hubby - thanks for the warning. :)

  2. Ehem, if you don't want your kids to eavesdrop, then speak in other language la... also helps them learn new language :P
