    In today’s episode, we played a grocery shopping game. I printed out pictures of vegetables and fruits and pinned them on a magnetic bulletin board. Using colored cards, I asked Lele to help me shop for vegetables and fruits based on color!

     =====
    A few weeks ago we went on a staycation.
    We got to stay in a hotel, eat lots of good food, do some shopping and visit a local farm.

    Lele usually sleeps in a Kidco Peapod tent when we stay in hotels.
    He has a really hard time falling asleep when he’s in our bed and we’ve found that putting him in a tent has been a good solution for all of us.

    We went to a local farm.
    There were a few different animals but the only ones we visited were the Alpacas.

    These Alpacas were so cute and furry but they were so aggressive!
    One even kicked me because I was passing out the food too slowly.
    I’ll post a video of it on my IG.


    We also rode these beautiful Swan shaped peddle boats.
    It was one of the few times Lele has been on a boat.
    He still doesn’t know how to swim or float yet so I’m pretty nervous whenever we are around bodies of water.

    Lele and Daddy found a LONG slide and rode it several times. It was so fun! Watch the video on our IG.

    My favorite part of vacations? Buying souvenirs!!
    Lele and Mommy both wanted stuffed alpacas so we got a blue one that Lele liked.
    He named it Paco (sounds like Alpaca).

    We had a great time sharing about our staycation with you guys!
    Thanks for listening and looking forward to chatting again soon! Talk to you next time!

Perfect for me and my kids

I love listening to this with my kids because not only are they learning but I am learning too! I love hearing my little one repeat the words and I appreciate learning new vocabulary.

Happy fit bit user ,

Helpful for Everyday Conversations

I really like how this podcast focuses on every day conversations so my child and I can learn Mandarin that we would use. The review is also helpful too! If possible, I would love those reviewed terms in the show notes. I look forward to more episodes!

路毅的妈妈 ,
