Our son Justin is being taught to speak in English in school. To facilitate that process, we (hubby and I) would speak to him in English, too, at home. When our son’s in a good mood, he’ll be saying things in English non-stop. Sometimes, he speaks good English like when he says, “Thank you for helping” or “I’m covering my mouth.”
He also has his bloopers, too, which is understandable given that he’s only 3 ½ years old and English is his second language. A few weeks ago, Justin asked me to buy him a toy camera. I bought him a cheap one because I know his fascination for that toy won’t last long. Using his new toy, he pretends to be taking a snap of things in the house. He then pretended to take a picture of his Dad who’s busy using the laptop at that time, so I asked him.
Mommy: What are you doing, Justin?
Justin: I’m picturing Daddy.
