My Kids, Parenting, THE BRAINY BUNCH

Learning Modesty 2

We went to our friends Ding and Dons’ resort called Beach Camp in Batangas on Sunday morning, two weeks ago. We were with a few adults and 8 kids. King and my friend May’s hubby Jay followed that night, after a full day of work in church.

The place was grassy and it was very safe for the kids to run around, go in and out of our cottage. Plus it was just us. No other group was in the camp. While I was fixing something in the dining area, Noelle needed to do number 1. I sent her to our cottage and to ask help from Danae. Apparently, there was someone in the bathroom and so our friend Ding, who was the only Daddy (also of two young ladies) around at the moment and was there in the cottage, took her to a bathroom in another cottage.

Ding was so amused, telling us the story.

Noelle: (in the bathroom) Close your eyes. You’re a boy.
Ding: (closed his eyes as he helped Noelle) Okay.
Ding wanted to check if she was done so he opened his eyes.
Noelle: HEY!!!
He didn’t realize she was watching him, so he shut his eyes immediately. Hahaha. But of course he had to help her when she had finished.

We all had a good laugh. It was so unexpected but it shows me that our 4-year old gets it. BOUNDARIES. MODESTY. SELF-RESPECT. 🙂
