Shopping Toddler Again

He grabs the handle
Then he pulls up
The shopping basket.

Grabbing and throw
A pack of vegetables
Into the shopping basket.

Picking up tea pack
Dropping into the basket.
Too heavy. . .
Pick and put it back.

Grabbing an apple
Sniff at it
Drop it into the basket.
Copying me when I smell oranges.

Picking up a box of biscuit
Throws it into the basket.

Leading his dad to fish section
Wanting to buy fishes,
No fishes.
Wanting crab, but
Afraid of it.

A pack of milk
A cute cow on it
Attracts him.
Too heavy!
He grabs it and
He is going to drop
Into his trolley’s basket.
I panicked, “Need to pay first!”
His dad puts it back.

While queuing for cashier
He drops in . . .
A box of ferrero Rocher chocolate.

Why? Why?
Why does he knows . . .
It is a chocolate?
Oh! The advertisement!

When my husband and I brought our toddler to the supermarket where I need to buy some groceries, our toddler gave us a surprise to lead the shopping.

把刀放下!Put the Knife Down!






In the room
Feet clasps key holder
Put your feet down!
Don’t be a koala.

Enter the room
Palms grab onto cosmetic container
Pull back your hands!
Put your hands down!

Walk into the kitchen
Small palm grabs a knife
Put the knife down!
Knife flies and plunges into the sink.

Walk into the kitchen again
Small palm grabs a knife
Put the knife down!
Knife flies and plunges into the sink.

It all started whenever my toddler uses both of his legs to clasp the mini-figurine tied to a key. A key that is plugged into my dad’s drawer. My mother let him does it. Upon entering my parents’ room and see him does so, I often respond, “把脚放下”.

Somehow on Tuesday night, those words sounded like, “把刀放下”. Other words popped out to fill in the blanks as my memory remembers his other dangerous actions. Taking my mother’s make up powder, broken make up lotion, and even grabbed a knife from inside the spoon and fork container and immediately throw it onto the floor. Everything he does was found out when I appear. All these happened before he turned two years old while he was with his grandmother. But she wasn’t like that when I was young. She loving yet firm. I just don’t understand her.
