J Summary (4Y8M18D) - The Men in the House

This morning, I was downstairs. J came down and said to me in Chinese, "Mom, can you make breakfast for Daddy and I? Daddy would like to have tea and Verona bread. Can you boil some water for the tea please?

I said, "Sure, and could you help me please? Let's do it together :-)"

"Mommy, I would like to "hygge sig" with Daddy, because he has been away for the last 2 evenings (fordi han har været væk et par dage). May I be allowed?" (Meaning: Can you prepare the breakfast yourself?)

That's so sweet that J is suggesting to spend one-on-one bonding time with Daddy.

I said, "Yes, you may be allowed."

But of course I took the opportuinity to correct his half-Chinese and half-Danish sentences into full Chinese sentences, and for him to repeat after me, before allowing him to go upstairs to Daddy. And he did it willingly :-)

So up he went to "hygge sig" with Daddy. He took the Danish children songbook up to Daddy.

I better stop for now and get going to prepare the breakfast for the 2 hungry boys.
