Recently Asna has started showing interest in reading the day’s newspaper. Not sure why or when she started or whether this will last, but we’re welcoming it – she’s learned a lot of things just by reading current issues e.g. Realizing that there are such things as irresponsible parents who dump their babies made her feel blessed, because apparently she told my mom “Thank you, Mama, for not dumping me“ and was suddenly nice to my parents for a while.
She starts asking me things like “Cikyong, what is a baby-trafficking ring?” and “Why do they cover the eyes of the babies?” and “Why won’t they show the bodies?”
Once, she even told me that my understanding of a story is outdated!
Good job, Asna. Crossing fingers that this will continue.
