five nails...

I noticed that Sam's finger nails grows rapidly in just a matter of few days. So one morning, i decided to trim them before she gets to school because she might scratch herself or someone from her class na during their playtime.

Moi: "Sam, let's cut na your finger nails because it's long na...can you get the nailcutter inside your pink drawer please?" ...she knows where we keep her things and her other stuff, teaching her how to be organize at an early age.

Sam: "ok mommy" ...with naughty!

Moi: "Thank You sweetie!" and she said "You're welcome!" ..practicing the proper and polite way as what they are being taught in school..

Sam: "mommy, why cut the nails?"

Moi: "because it's long na"

Sam: "why it's long na?"

Moi: "because it's growing honey?"

Sam: "why it's growing?"

Moi: "because you're a growing baby" ...need to change na the topic or else this endless questions of her will not stop!...haha! "look at your finger many are they?"

Sam: ..she counts "1, 2, 3, 4, 5! five finger nails!"

Moi: "Very good honey!" ...then I asked her to count the nails on her other hand...and she also correctly count them. Then i told her "the nails on your hands are called Finger nails and the nails in your feet are called Toe nails!" She's listening but saw this bewilder expression in her face... she started to look at her foot and seriously count 'em...

Sam: ..."1, 2, 3, 4, 5! It's five nails mommy, not two nails!..look...1, 2, 3, 4, 5!....Five nails!"

Moi: ..then I said "...uh!"...bursting myself into laugh!...haha! My goodness, she's right nga naman, it's 5 and not 2...she got baffled with the word "Toe" to "Two" ...kaya yan, she made me correct tuloy!...haha :p
