I thought i should put in a couple of Sammu's favourite dialogues and songs from these days:
We have recently started to teach her that it is not good to eat on the bed. I am guilty of eating on the bed at times - so that is why this is such a late and difficult lesson. So Rajesh has been trying to get her to stop this. He told her that there should be no eating on the bed, which she has converted to 'No "fooding" on the bed'! We don't know how she picked up this 'fooding' thing but it's very amusing and she declares it each time to all of us when she wants to have food on the bed!
The next is a made up song - she has these small 4 or 5 piece puzzles, simple animal ones that she has just begun to fit very well. So she fits the dog, the cat, the goat and the horse and then sings this song:
'Dog-u friend-u, Cat-u friend-u,
and then ends with some humming..
Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.'
She will warn you quite clearly - this song should not be sung when the puzzle is being assembled, only after. And the humming should come only at the end of the song. It's very amusing to see her stand next to the puzzles and sing this!!
