More of Zara’s speech May 3, 2007

Posted by Zara's Mama in development, language, Zara.

Zara speaks like an old lady at times. Giving me speechless moments, or a good laugh, or just at awe with how much she’s grown. More of such moments :

She likes to call people Yoo Hoo these days. E.g. “Yooo Hooo… turn on the TV for me” “Yooo Hooo! I want Vitagen”
I did the same, and called her, “Yooo Hooo.. You want to take bath now?”
She looked at me and said, Mum, dont’ call me yoohoo, call me ZA-RA.”

She wanted some Pringles chips.
I told her, “Only one piece, you cannot eat so much ok.”
She continued, “Because got MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) right?”
(We always tell her she can’t have instant noodle, or outside food too much because they contain lots of MSG)

Overheard her talking to her toy lamb.
*pretending to apply something to the lamb’s face*
No worries, it’s just paint (make up) ok.”
“Are you comfortable?”
“Finished already. All done!

*started holding the lamb and ran around the sofa*
“Run, run, run, Isn’t it fun?”

Over heard her saying :
“Don’t worry. I love you very much.”
“I sayang you ok?”
“When I big girl, I get married with you.”
“Rusty boy, you is (are) my husband.”

And who is Rusty Boy?……… Our cat at home. “O.o

I told her I need to change before going out to buy lunch.
Zara : “Me is wearing new (clean) baju (Malay : clothes) already. You is going to change.”
Me : *correcting her Grammar*”I AM wearinng new baju. You ARE going to change.”
Zara : “Me is changed.”
Me : “I changed. Not Me is changed.”
Zara : “I have CHANGE-DED.”

While we were at Morib.
Zara was curious with every thing she saw on the ground, and I was shouting,
“Zara, don’t touch that, that’s rubbish” when she was aiming for the piece of ice cream wrapper
“Zara, don’t touch that, that’s rubbish” when she was trying to pick up a bottle cap
“Zara, don’t touch that, that’s rubbish”.. it just came out automatically when she reached for something on the ground.
She raised her hand and showed me a casuarina seed, “This is pineapple lar. You silly girl, everything also you say it’s rubbish rubbish. Tsk.” (And shook her head. She is using the ‘tsk’ sound a lot to indicate her displeasure)

18. mom of cairo - May 4, 2007


after reading this, i have decided that it’s too wasteful to not capture their cute n innocent moments like these… dunno how u guys did it (i did 1 milestone post 3 mths ago and gave up after that hahaha)

erm… do guys actually write it down immediately when you hear those cute snippets? am seriously considering carrying around a small little notebook (the paper kind) for that purpose.

ZMM : Actually, I do write it down on a piece of paper if I have one. If not, I’ll keep repeating what she’d said in my mind until I remember it. And when I get the chance, will write it down.
I didn’t want to miss all these moments, so I do make an effort remembering it.

Zara is soooo funny and she is really good with words.

I stared at you/Zara cause I thought it was Zara, so I looked more closely. And it was really Zara. And I have not seen your pic. So, I was not sure it was you and Zara. *Blur Blur*

40. FireHorse - May 7, 2007

Kids nowadays are definitely “smarter” than we were back then, when we were young we believe things like, well I shouldn’t say “we” I shud say “I”, I believe my aunt when she said dun eat and lie down because can become snake.
