I speak a mixture of English n Mandarin to my baby.
I say "swimming" for bath-time cos he loves kicking n splashing the water in his tub and he appears more to be swimming than bathing haha
Before I was preg, I often noticed parents speaking to their kids in broken english on the train like "cannot like that one..". and that used to make me cringe.
the recent advert on TV where the Mom told her daughter to "you eat yourself!" then her daughter started chewing her own hands LOL!!
Therefore I try to speak in proper language and not Singlish and broken English.
hey Ting, Pin is vert articulate for a child her age!
