daniel’s monkey

I love how Daniel’s school teaches him other festivities. I want my kids to be deeply rooted but also are eager to learn, understand and respect other cultures.

For Deepavali, he wore an Indian costume.

For Christmas, he wore a Snowman costume.

And for this recent Chinese New Year, he wore a Chinese-inspired costume. I was searching high and low for a Chinese outfit for Daniel (really didn’t know where to get one!) and found this very last piece in Tesco, thank God.

Hehe definitely made me smile in the office when I saw this picture. When I came home, he excitedly carried his monkey up.

“Mommy, Mommy, I made a monkey!”

I had a reallllyyyy long day in the office and was exhausted but the excitement on his face, my goshhhh so cute I had to put everything else aside. I pretended I didn’t know what he was talking about.

“What monkey?”

“This monkey!!” He ran to his room and came back with the Monkey (we named him Uuu-Aaa).

“Ohh wowwwwww! Your monkey looks so cool, Daniel. Did you make this yourself?”

“Yes, I made it with Angela.”

Silence.

Hang on. That’s a girl’s name right?? Mohammad Angela, by any chance?

UGHHH first Caitlin, now Angela, how much more pain does my heart have to endure. *cries*

“Wh- who’s Angela, baby? Your new friend?”

“Yes, Angela!” he said, “Aunty Angela.”

Ahhh life is bright again. Aunty Angela, guys, don’t worry, she’s one of the teachers. Phewwwww.

Unless Daniel likes older women, I’m good for now. I hugged him so tight that night chanting, “Mommy is your best friend.”
