the visit of the moon & the kissing hand


























"long time no see mooonnn"

"mooooo, where are youuuu?"

"nooo mooonn day"

little bb has been saying these for awhile...

the first phrase caught me by surprise as i don't recall teaching him this phrase...
did he reckon the meaning of "long time no see" by himself?
don't know...  but let's just assume he did *smile*

after many nights of hearing him saying these before going to bed,
it suddenly dawn on me that i could actually "make" the moon appear!
i should have thought of this earlier!

so that night, i said to little bb,
"if you stay as a good boy tomorrow, mami will have a chat with moon moon
and see if moon moon will come say hi to you....  and if you are a really really good boy,
maybe moon moon will be kind enough to stay and keep you company while you sleep"

"yes mami....  good boy"

"ok dear, mami will talk to moon moon tomorrow"

then came the following night,
moon moon did show up!  and what's more?!
moon moon asked its friends, the STARS!!!, to come along too!

"wah!!!! mami!!!  mooon!!!!!!  starrrr!!!!"

"yes my dear......  you have been a good boy today so moon moon says she will keep you company tonight... together with the stars"

"nite nite"

and so from that night on,
the moon moon appears when there' s a good boy in the house that day

got a few new books for little bb

the kissing hand by audrey penn
papa please get the moon for me by eric carle
hug by jez alborough

i really like the message they are trying to convey
and how they talked about the love of daddy and mommy for their baby

we started with the kissing hand tonight
♥♥♥♥♥
and,
there were lots of kissing back and forth
♥♥♥♥♥
"show me your hand"
"ok, here comes a kiss from mami!"
"place your hand next to your cheek, can you feel the kiss and love from mami?"
"close your hand to keep the kiss"
"now, it's your turn to give mami a kissing hand"
♥♥♥♥♥
