“Ichi! Brush your teeth now! Got it?”

“Ichi! Wash your hands after the toilet! Got it?”

Naomi bosses Ichi about. Naomi is four. Ichi is eight. But Naomi sounds like a grown-up sometimes.
“Naomi is like mum recently,” said Ichi.

Oh no, is it me who Naomi was copying? Ichi is such a laid back boy so I often hurry him up, but I didn’t know I sounded that bossy!

Children are like mirrors. They reflect what they see and what they hear. After hearing Naomi speaking to Ichi in a commanding tone, I felt embarrassed with myself. I’d better watch out what I say and how I say it!

Here is this week’s cartoon.
