Conserving Energy

I may only be four years old but I sure know a thing or two about energy conservation.

Scenario 1
It was an exceptionally quiet evening at home. The tv was switched off and I was playing quietly on my own. Mummy told me to turn the radio on. I refused (probably too lazy to move my butt) so I said "No, just now we listened to CD already. Don't listen so many times lah. Waste electricity!"

Scenario 2
I like to cruise around the house on my little police car (second-hand from cousin Jeremy). Everywhere I go, be it to the kitchen, bedroom or bathroom which are just a few footsteps away, I will "drive" there. One day, mummy asked...
Mummy: Why do you have to ride on this all the time? Isn't it faster and easier to just walk?
Me: But I don't want to waste my energy.

The car is a bit too small for me now but I love it too much to let it go...

The same thing applies when we are out shopping. Most of the time, I will just sit lazily on my stroller because I'm too lazy to walk, citing "I don't have energy to walk" as an excuse. Yes, can you believe that I'm still very dependent on my stroller when we are out shopping? As I'm getting heavier and heavier by the day, mummy believes that the stroller is going to fall apart very soon haha!

  3. My kids also like to drive their vehicle in the house. I don't quite like it, when the vehicle moved, it created so much noise at home.

  6. Haha, we stopped using stroller when Shenny was 4 year old but her father had to carry her instead because she always likes to complain about leg sore after 10 or 15 minutes walking.

  8. She is very smart..haha...sit on the stroller is more fun than walking lah. :) Gwen stopped using the stroller when she was 2. But I think she would love to sit on the stroller if she gets the chance coz she sometimes asks Daddy to carry her.

  14. We can't ditch the stroller... yet! As you know, our shopping outings can be really crazy... stretching up to 12 hours at times. Asking her to walk that long amounts to child abuse haha!

    We also find the stroller extremely useful in carrying our belongings... water bottles, bags, shopping goods etc.

  18. I think it's a good thing that Chloe is still willing to sit on the stroller...That is the perfect excuse for mummy to shop from morning to night! I was terrified when my kid came back from preschool one day and declared that his class teacher said "no more stroller" and he was hardly 4 then! No way, would I hear of that. So, I brainwashed him...and thank goodness it worked! He was on the stroller till almost 5! Wah! Those mega long legs were very close to touching the floor whenever he dozed! We sure had quite many passers by commenting on those dangling legs! hehe.

  19. So glad to read her development and she is such a tall girl. She is good in her speech ya.

    I think it's good that she still sit in her stroller coz my Angel does and I think it's a life saver, don't you think so?
