Language

What language you introduce to your child when they born? Did you all decided b4 they born or after or like you fell what you want (use what language) to talk to them?

For us we decided after the baby was born. Firstly I (mommy) will use English to talk to my son, 1+2dad used Cantonese, my mother in law (MIL) will use Mandarin and my father in law (FIL) will use his ‘kampung’ language.

Later my MIL said that ‘kampung’ language very less used so asked my FIL to stop talk with my son with his ‘kampung’ language then talk to him with Mandarin. About 1+2dad, finally he talks to my son in English. Why?? Cause when my son know to talk he will answer 1+2dad in English so 1+2dad lazy to explain what he said and slowly he talk to him in English.

My son start talking are very slow (about 2 years plus), maybe we introduced him 2 languages in the same time so he need sometime to differentiate both language. I think maybe because most of the time I stay with him so he can talk well in English. But in Mandarin he will mix with English, he tries his best to speak Mandarin with my IL (in law).

Sometime ago I saw an article about when and how many language to introduce to the kids. It said better when they are about 0 to 3 years old and 2 languages in the same time. They can pick up very fast and they will use their brain to think the logic way when they grow.

This few days, my son tried to say Cantonese. Those children like to talk English, when they talk Cantonese are very funny. He understand what we chat but he cant answer in Cantonese. I heard he said Cantonese, so I play play with him and chat with him in Cantonese. He keep say the same word like ‘ni zhou meh yeh?’ (what are you doing?), later he laugh and laugh then dunwan talk to me again in Cantonese.

How about you all?

Snatching

No!! Not I’m been snatched by thief but my kids like to play snatching game at home. They play everyday at home, even my twins gal also like to snatch each other toys or thing.

Someone asked me : “will your twins will fight or snatch each other things??” I will answered :“why not?? They also kids.” My twins daughter like to snatch each other things when ever they saw either one holding something like toys, pencil, box and etc.

They even fight for the place they stand or sit. Sometime I carry or play with 1 of them when the other saw sure want the same thing as well. The snatching game sometime will end of become fighting game..haha. Sometime saw them fighting really very funny.

Here the story goes :

Carrie was holding a paper, suddenly Carol pass by and snatches the paper. Carrie saw her paper been snatched she very sad and start cry.

Carrie : Give me! give me! *follow her sister*
Carol : *run run run with that paper and avoid Carrie snatch back the paper*

Carrie : *cry louder* Give me! Give me!
Carol : *walk around with the paper*

Carrie : *fell very unhappy she start bit(beat) her sister*
Carol : *fell pain and cry but still holding the paper* Dunwan! Dunwan!

Carrie : *bit(beat) again*
Carol : *bit(beat) back Carrie cause she still bit her*

Carrie and Carol : *both cry so loud and mommy come*

1+2mom : dunwan play that paper! Give me the paper! If dunwan share the paper all dun play.

Finally I’m the winner of this game..hahaha.

Note : Ops..sorry guys, wrong spelling actually is beat not bit.
