On Becoming Mommy’s Boy

Rule #1. “Put your hands together, close your eyes and pray…” before meal and bedtime. (But he doesn’t close his eyes but bow down his head instead. Sometimes I’ll do a spot check by peeping at him if he curi makan or not. He didn’t! Amen!)

Rule #2.  Have meals always on the high chair and not in front of the TV.

Rule #3. Buckle up when you are on your high chair. (more of Daddy’s rule)

Rule #4.  Wipe your dirty hands and mouth with a hankerchief and not your clothes. (Do you wipe your tongue too? He does!)

Rule #5.  No wasting of milk and bring the bottle to the kitchen after you had finished it. (But I wonder why they always left 1 or 1/2 oz milk unfinished)

Rule #6.  Keep the toys before you go out kai-kai and before leaving the living room for bedtime. (But not all the time coz sometimes I don’t have the patience to wait for him or when we are short of time)

Rule #7.  Abide when daddy or mommy says “Let’s go”. (Else there comes the “magic stick”)

Rule #8.  Wear your shoe when you are out from the house and make sure you wears it right.

Rule #9.  Sit in the shopping cart always and no running around the supermarket.

Rule #10.  Stand up by yourself when you tripped/fell.

Rule #11.  Put your dirty clothes in the laundry basket.

Rule #12.  Take and eat the biscuit one at a time. No eating like a Garfield.

Rule #13.  Always on your car seat. Cry and fuss will not release you from it.

Rule #14. Clear your toys that are in the bath tub after bath. (He sticks the fish foams on the wall and put the rest in the basin)

Rule #15. Comb your hair after bath. (I used to comb for him but beginning to let him comb himself now. Of course I still have to complete the job for him)


So, how well did he scores? I’ll give him 95%.  What happened to another 5%? Well, that goes to his tantrum, temper, laziness and not paying attention.

    I give 100% for Jonathan’s good work.

    Jonathan so good boy. He willing to sit in the shopping cart during the shopping. Not like Sarah, just sit a while then started walking around.

    Now I know how Garfield eats:-)
