After reading and loving Jackie and Alexia’s chats, we were inspired to start our little segment around the conversations and the BIG words of our very own Baby Steps pre-schoolers.
I can’t even begin to imagine how many words get spoken in one classroom, let alone one pre-school, let alone all of our pre-schools in one day. If my household is anything to go by, there must be a constant hum of chit-chatting, walkie-talkie, why why why, teacher teacher teacher, (pretty sure a couple of mommy mommy mommy) chaos, which makes for the perfect environment to take note of how amazingly smart and funny our little sugar lumps are.
With the theme of the month being LOVE within our families, and today being Valentine’s Day, our Baby Steps teachers came up with the perfect conversation starters.
Here are the amazing, genuine, hysterical, and ever so clever responses we had from our beautiful babies.
What is love?
4 Year Old: “To give mom and dad a kiss.”
5 Year Old: “When we give our mom and dad our hearts.”
3 Year Old: “Kissing my mom!”
2 Year Old: “My friends.”
2 Year Old: “Mommy and Daddy.”
2 Year Old: “Baa baa, black sheep.”
Why do you love your mom and dad?
5 Year Old: “I’m their child!”
4 Year Old: “They make me strong.”
3 Year Old: “They feed me chicken, I love chicken!”
What is Valentine’s Day?
4 Year Old: “When mommies and daddies buy babies.”
5 Year Old: “It’s when we make cards after playtime and don’t tell mommy and daddy.”
What do you love about yourself?
3 Year Old: “I love that I can make a noise.”
5 Year Old: “I love me because I am very nice just like my mommy.”
6 Year Old: “I love my stomach because I can rest my hands on it when I am sleeping.”
5 Year Old: “I love my hair because it’s spikey with gel just like my dad’s.”
It is just so heart-warming to watch our children’s vocabulary grow from Baby Steps to BIG words, so let us keep on showing the love, kick starting conversations and just enjoy every moment, BIG or small, with our most precious gifts!
Wishing you all a happy Valentine’s Day from the Baby Steps Early Learning Centre team.
