Finger Pointing is Dangerous...

The other day I saw Ben holding on to a toy and then he dropped it on the floor. Then he grabbed another toy and I decided to try out an exercise with him (which our paed said to expect this milestone in these few months). I hold both toys with my hands and I showed them to Ben, asking him to choose which toy he wanted by pointing to the one he wanted.

After a few seconds, he POINTED to one of the toy! Woohooooo!!! I was so excited with that - so much that I posted it to my Facebook status... Then after the euphoria has gone, I sat down calmly and think again...

Great... actually finger pointing is dangerous! (Well aside from the real world where you get to see sh*t happens and somebody is being blamed or the buck is being passed around by finger pointing)

So, anyway, as I was saying, finger pointing is dangerous!

Now imagine the picture here and these few situations (which I'm thinking far ahead...):

#1 - "See Daddy/Mummy, I told you SO! This is the LAST time I'm telling you!" (finger pointing to you who are already full of shame and embarrassment)

#2 - "Daddy/Mummy, I want THAT toy! (finger pointing to the most expensive toy in the toy store)"

#3 - "Daddy/Mummy, I want to go there! (finger pointing to the direction of the toy store)"

#4 - "Daddy/Mummy, I want to eat THAT too!" (finger pointing to the yummy-licious food you have been waiting to eat all for yourself for so long...)

#5 - "Daddy/Mummy, ONE more round in THAT pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...!" (finger pointing to the merry-go-round/game rides)"

#6 - "Daddy/Mummy, ONE size more! You CAN'T fit into this size since last few years remember?!" (finger pointing to you who are already full of shame and embarrassment-again...)

So ladies and gentlemen... I do think finger pointing is dangerous... ;p

awwww that's soooo cute! My 2 year old will sometimes do something she knows she's not supposed to, point her finger and shake it then say, "I go time out NOW!" ...she puts herself in time out all the while shaking her finger! lol

pointing fingers is still good..as long as Ben is using the INDEX finger. :D refer to my http://thirdysmom.blogspot.com/2009/12/hes-got-bad-boy-image.html post (last picture).hope you'll not freak out! hehehe

PS, Ben is growing fast..couple of months before 1st birthday, right?

Hi Anne,

Ok... pointing with index finger is still better than middle finger hahahaha... I do have a picture of Ben when he first learn to push up on tummy (about 3 mths old). That picture clearly shows him with the middle finger sticking out... hahahahah...

Everything they learn eventually comes back to haunt us. Walking, crawling, talking... it's all a cute milestone at the time!
