It was amazing to see how Champee has grown in her communication skills after just three weeks of her summer class.
Last Tuesday, Champee was able to narrate her dream to Cali after waking up from her afternoon siesta. She told her that she had a very bad dream. "So what was your dream?", Cali said. "There was a giant hotdog that was running after me!", was Champee's reply with her eyes seemingly starting to cry. But then mommy was quick to respond that she's there and offered her something to eat to distract the fear from her dream.
It was a good plan, however, Cali forgot that the food they bought was "sopas". Yes, it was Champee's favorite, but everytime she eats it, she takes away the hotdogs as she really doesn't like the taste. Supposedly when we cook sopas, we dice the hotdogs so it doesn't look like one but unfortunately from where they bought this soup, you can easily recognize the hotdogs. So the distraction suddenly became a reminder again of her dream :)
I got curious how could a hotdog be so scary aside from being big so I googled up "giant hotdogs" and found the image above. And yes, it's scary indeed! Why would he put ketchup on his head? Is he planning to eat himself?! I don't have any idea who created this mascot but I'm sure I won't invite it on Champee's next birthday as it might trigger nightmares for her. (no offense to the creator it's just that my daughter doesn't appreciate giant scary hotdogs for now)
