MY FACE AND A TYRANOSAURUS REX

MY SON

He loves being naked, probably like most 2 years old. He speaks French, English and Spanish… like a 2 year old. He knows many many many American Sign Language (ASL) signs. We learned them together on YouTube and on MySigningTime.com We just started German with the program The Cultured Kid. He spends a lot of time with his grand-parents, my partner’s parents here and there during the week, and my parents one or two nights most weekends. His favorite movie is Totoro in Japanese; he says Itadakimasus before dinner every night. We did a lot of the BrillKid Music and Reading programs. It has been part of our morning routine for more than a year. The only class I was going to with him was a music class at the library… but then Covid. WE READ A LOT. I’ve been blending words during storytime here and there forever, pointing to the words while I read, asking questions during the stories. We read books in french, english and spanish with him. I also have made home-made book for him. I am hoping he will be an early reader but I will never create stress around it. He just started daycare in the mornings with me as one of his teachers. He’s probably eaten more frozen blueberries than you in your lifetime… Ah and his name is Ilyas, in honour of my partner’s grand-father, a Greek migrant to Canada and a scientist.

CLOSING NOTE

I hope I can help Moms, dads, caregivers of all sorts, improve in any way in the same manner as other have done for me. I also hope that in 20 years I will look back to this blog with less shame than how I look at my old Skyrock blog now.
