Over the past week, Aaron has developed this new habit of running out whenever he hears other little kids outside. Sometimes, they are down the road and don't see him. He doesn't see it as a problem, he just stands there and knocks the padlock against the gate to get their attention.
The first time I asked him what he was doing, he said he was trying to warn the kids not to fall into the drains. It puzzled me but I left it at that. They were actually playing in the drains. So he kept yelling out in Indonesian "Awas! Awas!". Eventually, one of the kids came over to chat with him.
So each day, he hears kids, runs out, and bangs on the gate to get their attention.
A couple of days ago, there were two girls outside. He tries the same trick and eventually they come over. They know he speaks English so they said "Hello baby".
His answer completely take me by surprise. He says "Hello there me hearties!". My little almost three year old.....*LOL*
He then starts talking some sort of gibberish to them and they just giggle. Later on, he tries to put on some pirate accent and ask them what their names are only he doesn't understand their answers. I think he's getting this from watching Captain Feathersword on The Wiggles.
Perhaps I should start giving him pointers now on how to talk to girls. Otherwise, he'll start thinking that all this pirate talk must be the way to go since these two were highly entertained by him.
