What's the time?

Toddler can read numbers so she can tell the time on a digital clock but not on the real clock yet as she is still learning the concept of time.

MG: "Sweetie, can you tell mummy the time?"

Toddler: (Toddler runs to the digital alarm clock)

Toddler: "One, one, buttons, zero, six." (11:06)

MG: "Ha ha. Very good. Thats Eleven Zero Six (11:06) sweetie." (The "buttons" was what made MG laugh)

A moment later.......

Toddler: "Mummy, Eleven Zero Seven (11:07)."

Smart Toddler. MG beaming with pride.

  4. must get digital clock... ;)

  5. *sigh* my girl call the clock "lock", then asked where is the mouse when I try to tell time.

  6. Jason, all babies are potential engineers and little scientists. They're sooo cute when they are learning and they actually scan when they look around.

    James, look at a digital alarm clock with a child's mind and you will see some magical buttons or what looks like buttons appear in between the hour and minutes. Heh heh.

    msau, ya lor. now I have special "remote" to tell the time, turn off the lights and fan in my room which is within toddler's reach. I even have a "remote" to bring my remote for the TV etc to me. Sei lor, getting lazy and fat summore now got little helper lagi lazeeeeeeee.

  11. So smart of toddler..!! and rightfully a proud mom.. :) I would be.. if chloe can do that. ;)

  12. Mango, no lessons lah, just go with the flow. Toddler usually lets me know when she is ready for a new thing by expressing great interest in it.

    1+2mom, toddler can say A-Z and count from 1-20. I didn't teach her lah, Elmo on the PC taught one. Haha.

    twinsmom, hahaha so farneee....

    Milly, toddler going to be 3 years old next month but no hurry lah. I am sure she will know how to tell time by the time she goes to college. Hehe.

    MrsT, I am sure Chloe will learn fast with such a loving mum like you. :D
