We are going through a phase at the moment where my two year old wants me to do everything for him, ie. take him to the toilet, put his seatbelt on, warm his milk up, bath him, cook his porridge etc. etc. instead of his – depending on who is about – Dad, Brother, Auntie, Grandmother or Lola (Filipino grandmother). So you can imagine at breakfast when I say words to the effect of, I’m off to work today and you are off to Lola’s.
This visblog is about scripts I introduced that helped calm him (in conjunction with the extra dollop of honey in his porridge), by showing that I was hearing him all the while knowing that at some point during that morning we would part for our separate ways.
