Nate just turned three two weeks ago.
In a year, he will officially be going to pre-school. I’d like to think he will be ready by then.
He is now toilet-trained – only wears diapers during the night and when we go out (more for our convenience, hehe). He is not a picky eater too, so I guess teachers won’t have any difficulty feeding him… Well, except that he has lots of food allergies.
And, oh, his vocabulary is fantastic! He can name (and mimic) most wild animals – his favorites being tiger (roaar!), lion (growl!), snake (hisss! with matching tongue-wagging), e(le)phant, and dragon (with matching fire-breathing). I know, the last one doesn’t count as ‘wild animal’, but, hey, we’re Chinese! 😛
He can blabber lots of mostly-intelligible phrases too:
“Tabi tayo ha, Mama.” (My heart melts!!! *swoon*)
“Yan chicken a(ller)gy ako?”
“Almost done, guys!” (Always cracks me up, LOL!)
“Watch ako Agent Oh-sow.” (He loooves this new show on Disney Channel, Special Agent Oso!)
“Waay kamiii!” (Translation: Wait for me!)
“Eeeew, yuck!” (when anyone kisses him)
I am contemplating, though, of enrolling him in a pre-nursery school when the second semester opens in November.
I know, I know! These things weren’t existent when I was growing up too! I mean – I went to a public school for kindergarten, for goodness’ sake. And I turned out just fine… Right? (I guess??? I hope!)
