A few Chica updates...

...filling up our days the past few weeks.

Chica is being this rather outspoken girl at home, in an entertaining way, with an amusing answer/opinion on almost anything that is being talked about :) So we were playing this word game while having dinner and she thought of a word and was giving clues to Niño for him to guess the word. Now Niño always likes to team up with his dad, just to make it easy for himself. After a couple of hints, the 'team' guessed the word and it happened a few times in a row. Niño expressed his pride on playing so well, to which she remarked so casually "So what are you doing about it bhaiya, its all papa's work!" The way she speaks, its hard to suppress a smile. :)

The other day, she was telling me about her teacher at school who spells is as 'iz'. I told her that I don't blame her because that's how it 'sounds' actually to which pat came the reply "But mom, we know in English, its not always about the sound!" Again said in a rather straightforward, matter of fact kind of way from a little girl, it sounded rather funny. While still on the topic of spellings, which she is currently taking a lot of interest in, she sometimes, just for fun and silliness, asks me spellings of words like UPS, USA, TV, etc. The other day, she asked me to spell OK for her. I told her its o.k.a.y. May be she expected it to be O.K. or may be I had spelled it as that the last time, she said as much. I replied saying that both of those are valid spellings. "Why" was the next question to which I halfheartedly (more out of tiredness on answering such questions) replied "I don't know". "Well then why didn't nani (grandma) teach you why?" Uff, the persistent interrogator sure managed to bring a smile to my face again.

So she is being this buoyant little girl, happy in her skin, wearing a beautiful dress because she feels like dressing up with clips to match, dancing, looking at herself in the mirror, humming "I am the most beautiful girl in the world" with gay abandon. At other times, not caring how she looks with paint on her face or tears, previously shed, because she had a fight with her brother, now making trails on her soiled face, just drawing for hours on end,  still humming "I am the most beautiful girl in the world". I love your confidence baby and I love your free spirit. Stay the same!

LOL at her statements. Let Chica grow with carefree attitude rather be suppressed what to say and what not to say.
