The Benefits Of Reading

Ian started picking up reading when he was 5.  According to his kindy teacher, if he wasn't playing with his peers, he would be seen sitting at the kindy's reading corner with a book in his hands while waiting to be picked up after school dissolved.  She told me she was amazed at how focus and quiet he could be when reading a book in contrary to his usual active and noisy self.  That's how much he loves reading.;)

The magazines that I subscribed for him earlier arrived in our mailbox with latest issues last week.  He was so excited when I handed the parcel to him with his name printed on the envelope.  He yelled in excitement,"Mommy, I have got letter, I have got letter!" Hahaha!!  As we have no TV rule on weekdays and being the only kid with virtually no one to play with at home, other than playing with his toys, he does a lot or reading.

One day, after he poo-ed, he called on me to see his poo and started asking me, Mommy, you know why the poo poo also have bubbles?  Before I could answer, he revealed,"That's because those bubbles are protein from our body.  He told me he read this from Young Scientist.  He has picked up the word "defecate" and when he goes to do his business, he will say, Mommy, I go toilet to defecate, ok. LOL. There were quite a few more science related questions that he had asked me but I cannot recall now.

In conclusion, instead of having the "Idiot Box" babysits him, I have this ........

While I attend to this....
