Kids Talk : Why I Don’t Care About My Studies

kids talk

The tiring days as a Primary 5 kid (last year) and the dreadful PSLE (this year) made me lose mood to blog.
I did not want my blog to be all sad and gloomy the whole time, so I rather not ‘talk’.
It was both an emotionally and physically tiring months…weeks…days.

My sky-falls-down-like-blanket-covering Kitkit seldom laugh out loud anymore.
But today…… yes at night, I finally see the happy Kitkit again when we went to Chinatown for a stroll.
Babbling his crow-flying-jokes and nonsensical topics …

This one is my favourite:

Kitkit used his knee to press the big round button at the traffic light.
He lost his balance and hit his knee against it instead.
Kitkit: “Ouch Ouch Ouch….” grabbing his knee
Me: “Kitkit, don’t you think its weird doing that?”
Kitkit: “Mummy did you know that people who have the least number of friends and are weird are usually the smartest in the world?”
Me: “So are you saying you are going to continue doing weird stuff?”
Kitkit: “Ya!”
Me: “Since that makes you one of the smartest in the world, why is your school results ‘like that’ leh?”
Kitkit: “So long as I don’t get a U-grade, I don’t care. Studying in school is just not my thing. Look at Einstein with that crazy stick-tongue-out facial expression and Vincent van Gogh, who cut off his own ears. They are weird. But they are so smart!”
Me: Save my breath on repeating lengthy lectures….
*eyes rolled*

I know too many people that are school dropouts but are so successful in life now.
So, I am not gonna argue either.
However, with his attitude towards studies and PSLE, I can only cross my fingers and toes and arms and whatever that is cross-able….that he will get a seat in Secondary School.

Good Luck my little weird son.

Kids Talk : Why Ghosts Wear White?

kids talk

Its the 7th month in the Lunar Calendar, also known as the Ghost Festival Month; and the topic on Spirits or Ghosts happened to be everywhere.

Kitkit: “Mummy, why do ghosts always wear white, especially in the movies?”
Me: “You tell me?”
Kitkit: “They cannot wear black because they only come out at night where there are little or no lights. So if they wear black, we can’t see them! So must wear white, then got contrast mah.”

Oh well!
Though we giggled, cannot deny there seemed to be some truth in that…..
