My boy's definition of love
My boy: I lurve you.
MG: I love you too!
My boy: What about cheh cheh (sister). You love cheh cheh too?
MG: Yes, I love cheh cheh too.
My boy: And daddy?
MG: Yes, I love daddy too.
My boy: And kong kong?
MG: Yes, I love kong kong too.
It was at the tip of my tongue to add "Because we are family" at the end of my sentence when my boy finished the sentence for me...
My boy: Because you walk slowly with kong kong.
:) The observant little one had noticed that whenever we took kong kong out together with us on an outing I would slow down my pace and walk slowly together with kong kong who walks much slower than us and to him THAT IS LOVE! Love is simple. Love is kind. Love is all around us.
My girl's definition of love
We were doing some lessons together in her workbook. When we reach the assessment part, I told her that she should try to do it on her own without my guide. "This is a test to see how much you have learned, I told her."
My Girl: Ok, Mummy. Mummy, if I do it simply or wrong will you still love me?
MG: Of course I will love you, you know that Mummy loves you no matter what.
Love is so simple to the kids and indeed it is simple. To them it is a matter of how much time I spend with them etc. It is no wonder that they always get so upset whenever I get impatient and don't wait for them to finish brushing their teeth or eating and walk away. They must see that act of impatience or walking away as "You don't love me....."
