One afternoon, while inside the car, Jerry said “Jake, tell Mama what you told me earlier.” Jake, who was sitting on his nanny’s lap, gave me a very wide smile but didn’t say anything at first. “Ok, what did you do in school this time?”, I said chuckling.
“Ma…. (Jake was grinning)… Teacher Cai said…. (now I was getting nervous)…” , Jake haltingly narrated.
I just looked at him as I tried (in my mind) to egg him to speak up. “…Teacher Cai said… I should wear briefs.”, he continued.
The following day, we made sure to buy his pack of briefs. Jake is actually potty-trained. At home he even naps in the afternoon in his shorts without his diaper. He just wears his diaper at night under his jammies especially since he finishes 3 bottles (21 oz) of milk even while he sleeps. I just thought it was the school’s requirement to keep pre-schoolers in diapers to avoid “accidental leaks”.
Anyway… so there, another son of mine coming of age. 😀
