Emergency Switch

“Something is flying.”
“What is flying? Bird is flying?”
“Flying.”
“But there’s no bird in the sky today.”
“What’s that?”
“What?”
“This.”
“TAWON!!! Angel sini! Quick Angel come here! That’s a bee!”
“Bee! Bee is flying!”
“No Angel don’t go there! Dienthub lho kamu! That’s not bee. That’s hornet!”

Evangeline, 2 yrs 1¾ month.
Innocently dangerous.

I just noticed in time of emergency we switched to our mother tongue automatically.

“Ouch!!!! Why did you do that?”

Budaya

Mendidik anak itu tidak mudah. Mendidik anak di luar negeri itu terlebih tidak mudah. Mendidik anak di luar negeri seraya memastikan masih mengenal budaya tanah air, itu tantangan luar biasa.
