As I was giving Andrea her bath, I told her to wait for awhile to make the water colder, because I just put ice cubes in side the bucket full of hot water (summer time here in the Middle East is like you are inside an oven, thanks for the ACs’ but water from the faucet? you can’t trust them not to be boiling hot too!!!) and she replied: “Mommy, eyes?? (While pointing to her eyes)…Oh well, here we go again another explaining job to do…

I thought Little Munchkins has no inkling to riding cars yet, as for the past few weeks I’ve been bringing her to Extreme in City Center just to watch other kids play bump cars, ride in planes and other games there; sort of she’s kind of scared to even get near but when we went to The mall yesterday she cried her heart out just to let her have a ride.

At first we didn’t gave in but I reminded Daddy N that it’s her 20th month birthday so there she went with a big smile in her face like a big kiddo driving a mini car. Really, time flies so quickly and how she grows so fast.

Little Munchkin had a blast of play today; she enjoyed the company of Tita Neneth’s pamangkins. They came over to the house for a visit and as usual Andrea offered them every toy in sight and as well as food, that’s how hospitable and accommodating she is at an early age. She’s in a state of “high? power, energy and happiness nothing would compare her state of bliss ness for having playmates.

Now, I’m thinking of putting her to a nursery wherein she can have all the time to socialize, interact and play with other kids. Every time she sees another kid there’s always an urge for her to approach but sadly most of the time I pity her for some cold response she received especially from other nationalities (but not all!).

At her age (to be exact, it’s her 20th months today!) she wants to be always in contact with another kid. But some of other kids are not approachable, some are wickedly nasty and for that I explain to her (hope she understands me well) that not all of the children are like her and not all the times you can’t just wave to them and they well be friendly at you too…And after Mommy’s lecture, she’ll pout her lips and smile.

Oh well, she’s really a grown up toddler…nobody can say no to that!
