Life With My Boy : Things They Don’t Tell You


I have a great respect and love for websites and blogs that help young parents by telling them what to expect at each stage of a child’s growth.

However I have found out that they don’t tell you everything.

No one told me that between the ages of two & three, toddlers would be able to take Selfies with smart phones.


As techy as I claim to be, I have to admit that I didn’t know ‘reverse camera’ was used for Selfies until my son started using it. Ye!

He also records & plays videos  and expertly uses the YouVersion Children’s Bible App on my phone (how much is that tab for kiddies again?)

The other day, I heard a voice say ‘What’s up men?’ And I practically froze. I had to be sure it was coming from my 3 year old.

Most recently, in the bathroom, while having his bath, he sang ‘Don Doro bucci‘ and before I knew it I had gone like ‘Eh, who taught you?’.

I do try my best not to panic or overreact as toddlers pick things fast and all but then…. Mothers are Mothers biko

Funny thing is, he still can’t answer to ‘Who taught you?’ so my questions are always answered with ‘It’s me!’

We’ve resorted to listening closely to him and trying to teach him what’s appropriate and what’s not.

The other day I said ‘Say after me, that’s inappropriate’. Lol. I can’t even begin to spell what he pronounced. Afterall, he’s only just a 3 year old.
