Henry Mingyu's first few days with us he called me "Ayi" the Chinese word for nanny. I started correcting him. I would point to myself and say "mama". The rest of the week half the time he would say "Ayi" and the other half "mama"...sometimes even correcting himself.
Sorry to blog a book each time! Apparently if I don't write it down it didn't happen 😜. I am also blogging on my phone. For a mama of "advanced maternal age" who just started wearing reading glasses this year it is tough! Sorry for all the typos...I just can't SEE them!
Did I mention it was once again a 99 degree and humid day? Oh my! So sticky and so sweaty!
We played "how many people can we fit in a taxi?" today as we traveled from location to location. People here don't wear seat belts or use car seats for kids...so why not?! Just for the record we can fit one teen, one toddler, one baby, one shopping guide, and two happy to be shopping adoptive mamas in the back of a taxi! Ha!! 😜
I love Shamian Island ❤ It is such a beautiful place and I have so many happy memories of time spent there with my girls on my previous trips.❤
Henry Mingyu wasn't having it...so Alex showed him how easy it was to cooperate!
