I feel very proud that Aidan can say the word "jatuh"* everytime something falls. the first 3-4 days i get all excited, i'd go "awwwww" and kiss him everytime he says "aaatoh". by then he knows that he would get a kiss and mama will be happy when he says the word.
("jatoh! err.. oh no.. mama's tone of voice is going to change.. what should i do?!")
("what? it wasnt my fault mama, it slipped!")
("can you clean it up for me pleasseeeeee.....")
Now, what do you say to that face ey?
So therefore introducing the word "jatuh" is not a good idea afterall. bad move mama!! bad move... (but it is good excercise for mama!). now, the struggle to teach him how to clean up his own mess begins.... (this is where my montessori experience kicks in!).
Wish me luck!
* jatuh means fall
