How do you know your child is maturing?

Postby Guest » Mon Aug 16, 2010 11:43 pm

The rate of growth in children is really amazing...

Each time when I listen intently to what my child is saying....I can feel the difference in the thought process and feel the maturing happening as she talks... Times like this I sometimes wonder where is my baby yesterday? Being a parent has really mixed feelings in me, at times I cannot wait for her to grow up....at times I miss her innocent way of talking...

Do you sense the same or is it I am aging too? :rotflmao:

For me, how I know?

When I pay for my groceries at NTUC and realize there are no bags for me to carry into the car ....

Used to be just DH. Now I have a mini troop stopping me from buying things they think is not worth it. Sometimes my kids act like my parents ... too naggy .... scary.

Yes keropi, I so agree with you. I also notice my child beginning to nag at me for some things. She even helps to ensure I drink water! :shock:
I thought this was what I had been doing for her.

It's such a warm and fuzzy feeling that you have a troop to help out at groceries. So sweet and sensible of them. This is also part of the rewarding part of being a parent, observation their transformation slowly into young adults and making themselves useful.

Yes at this age now, you will see even more phenomenal growth from her. I always feel that the first 2 years zoom past so quickly. The baby moments were really brief, now that I think about it... :wink:

My ds can act like a mini adult sometimes. This event happened last Sat afternoon. DS was preparing to bathe. Then he took out his dirty clothes and put it on the bed. Too quick of mouth, I said this:

me: don't be an idiot, put your dirty clothes on the floor (I regretted saying tis half way thru my sentence)
ds: (turn around, and looking at me a queer manner) are you calling me an idiot?
me: (quickly change the subject) no, I mean you put dirty clothes on the bed is an idiotic action. I don't mean you're idiot.
ds: do you like people to call you idiot?
me: no, I'm sorry (now ego very small liao)
ds: don't let me catch you doing this again, ok?
me: I already said I'm sorry (almost whimpering) :oops:

After he's satisfied that he made me felt bad enough, he happily proceeded to bathe. So I must constantly remind myself to watch my words. Liddat qualified to be maturing or not?
