monologue of my 22-month-old...

Sit car. Go kai kai. Dark… Not bright. Koko where? In front. Papa drive. Drive car. Car. Bus! Motorsikal! There. There motorsikal! Woooo…. So fast! So laud. (pause) Whale eat Pin-know-cheo. Eat uncle. Uncle cry. Pin-know-cheo got donkey ears. Donkey ears like that... (giggle) (pause) Moon. Star. High up in the sky! Want to catch moon. Catch! Bird fly. Fly high up in the sky! Burung. Bird. Burung kakak tua… Giginya dua… let tum let tum let tum ooo laaa laa

I swear she was chattering non-stop at the back of the car yesterday night in her mixture of broken English, Malay and Mandarin. It was entertaining when her monologue broke into an incomplete Malay song, which she repeated over and over. When her voice finally drifted off, I knew she had fallen asleep. Occasionally, she let a soft giggle escape her soft lips. She must be dreaming she had finally caught the moon and hugging it against the round belly of hers…
