He reports and shows his new sandal.
So excited with
A pair of new shining sandals.

Since my son’s sandal is tight, his dad and I brought him out to buy a new sandal. Not much choice with the sandal size. Only a pair of red angry bird sandal is size 29 suitable for my 33 months toddler. Surprisingly, after we bought it, the sandal shined. My son was intrigued and always stomped his feet in order to see its little light effect.

Hands clasp onto the tree with its claws
Legs clasp onto the tree with its claws
As claws clasp tightly onto the bark of the tree.
It is a KOALA!
Hands clasp onto the neck with fingers
Legs clasp onto the waist with toes
As fingers and feet clasp tightly around the neck and waist of his father.
My toddler is like a koala.

Hiding under chairs
Hiding under tables
Hiding under the television rack
Hiding under his cot
Hiding under the dressing table
Hiding behind the doors
Hiding at the corner
Hiding in the wardrobe
Hiding his head into the blanket
Hiding behind the curtains
Hiding and hiding

Whenever and wherever he sees a hole, he loves to enter and hide in it.
The cot is damaged!
He almost falls . . .
The baby gate falls down!
Just with his two hands . . .
The locked kitchen door breaks!
Thank God, the door doesn’t hit him . . .
Reddish at cheeks are neatly applied!
Oh, my mum let him use hers . . .
The television rack breaks!
His butt landed onto the floor . . .
Head knocks onto the door!
He just smiles and walks away . . .
He is somersaulting on his cot!
Giving a smile then he grins . . .
The sofa is pulled out and pushed back!
He does so happily . . .
His strength is as strong as a horse . . .
His strength is as strong as a bull . . .

Requesting to carry the shopping bag
Shopping bag of his new clothes
Carrying it like an adult.
Mimicking the adult’s way

After buying two collar T-shirts for my toddler, he requested to carry the plastic bag. The way he carried it looked like a shopping person. Then “shopping toddler” notion came upon because my husband and I only bought those for our son. Our son grows taller and his clothes are lesser.
With feet rested onto mattress
Two hands on floor; inhaling, exhaling heavily
Head rolls up and down.
