After watching Monsters vs. Alien in CGV Sangam yesterday, Little Dynamo’s energy needed more releasing. We walked to a nearby bakeshop to buy bread for breakfast for the following morning. Along the way, trees line the street. He stopped by one tree, looked up and:
Little Dynamo: Mommy, this is a tree.
Me: Very good. That’s a tree.
We moved on. Then, I thought to play it smart to my son. I got his hand and went back to the tree.
Me: (touching the bark of the tree) Anak, this is the bark of the treet. The skin of the tree is called a “bark”.
Little Dynamo: Bark of the tree. Like woof woof (making the woof woof sound of a dog) of the dog.
Me: Oh, yeah. You’re right! Bark means the woof woof of the dog and the skin of the tree.
Oh well, I’m still smarter. I added another meaning of bark to his vocabulary. LOL.
