I asked Andrew what he would like to be called when he grows up. Andy? Drew? Drewby? (that's my pet name for him)


I couldn't resist asking, "Who calls you that?"

"You la!"


Andrew wanted me to wind down the car windows on the way home from his Chinese class.

I told him it wasn't a good thing to do as the road was full of exhaust fumes, the exhaust was unhealthy, and also smelly.

He said, "When you smell smelly things, when you smell my toes, you'll be smelly right?"

Dino Drinker

Reading his dinosaur picturebook with his daddy, Andrew asked, "Why the coelophysis drink from the swimming pool?" It was depicted drinking from a pond.

Sean asked him, "How should it drink?"

Andrew replied, "From a cup!"

From The Mouth Of Babes

Sean had taken Andrew and his Maxi Micro scooter to the nearby Punggol Waterway, a nice place for jogging and cycling.

As one lady ran towards them, Andrew pointed at her and asked loudly, "Why some people take off their clothes?" She was wearing a sports bra and shorts.

I guess it's really not very different from the situation in Hans Christian Andersen's "The Emperor's New Clothes," except it's now called 'fashion.'

Dirty Things

From his car seat, Andrew annouced, "I'm eating dirty things, Mummy!"

I looked around at him, trying to see any potential source of "dirty things," but everything seemed fine. So I asked, "Where?"

"In my mouth."

"Where did you get it from?!"

"My nose."

Sugar Bread

When we went to the supermarket today, we discovered that the cheerful little confectionery on the side had been torn down. Andrew used to get a sweet butter bun there on our weekly grocery trips. Now, it was a desolation strewn with wreckage, puddles soaking the floor.

He looked on the scene quietly. Then he said, "No more sugar bread for me."

We packed the groceries into the boot and drove home. On the way back in the car, he suddenly said, "My sugar bread is lost. I feel very sad. I am going to cry."

How To React On Being Locked Out


That would be Andrew on waking up from his nap.

Not A Cute Boy

Sophie said to Andrew, "You're so cute!!"

"I'm not cute! I'm clever boy. And hamsome boy. And angry boy!"

Not Working

Andrew stood in the bathroom, waiting to pee, but without success.

"Daddy, it's not working, my p****!"

Later on, while showering, he suddenly peed.

"It's working now!"

Mercedes Boy

"Mercedes Boy" is a song by Pebbles, released in 1987.

Sean played it in the car one day, while driving with Andrew. After listening to it for a while, Andrew asked, "Is that the Mercedes song?"

Sean said yes.

When the song ended, Andrew asked, "Can I have the Kia song?"
