as told by a 3-year old.

"Boy pakai spender. Girl pakai spendie."

"Boy pakai spender. Girl pakai panty."

"Bukan. Kalau boy pakai spender, girl pakai spendie."


Sometimes, we forget all the lessons we can learn from these little persons.

It doesn't matter that he got it wrong. 

It matters though, how pure and literal he can be and how I must always tread carefully -- just enough to be sure that I can sleep soundly at night knowing that I have tried to get this whole motherhood thing right.

And it matters to know that it's okay to make mistakes -- whether you're 3 or you're 30

Just as long as you've really, really tried.
