When Roi is passionate about something, he really puts energy on it. I guess I can’t question where he got it from *clears throat*.
I remember how passionate he was with Cars/ Lightning Mc Queen, then Veggietales, then Ben 10, then Plants vs. Zombies… and now Angry Birds. I wonder who/ what’s next?
Recently we watched the movie “Ice Age 4″ and we really had fun! We were laughing and smiling from start to finish. Ria and Roi have been memorizing some lines as they have surfed clips from youtube.
For now it’s hard to determine what Roi is really passionate about. He is definitely musically inclined, but he is not that keen in learning a musical instrument yet. I hope he does soon, so we could enroll him at a music school somewhere.
When asked what he wants to be when he grows up, he would tell you he would like to be an Engineer. A Pastor Engineer, he would say. Maybe he needs to play with toy milling machines to get some practice. For now he has this Lego as a present from his godparents, but he doesn’t seem to play with it often.
When Roi was a lot younger, he had problems with his psychomotor skills. I mean I am sure it was normal for his age, but his speech development is a lot advanced compared to his age. He did not have trouble with baby talk, and he easily conversed with adults even at an age when other kids his age would still be stammering.
So we bought him toys that improved his psychomotor skills. He liked it, and even pretended to be a mechanic fixing a machine or something. Pretty soon it was noticeable that his psychomotor skills have greatly improved.
Toys like these are ideal– we bought him lego, too. Aside from developing his psychomotor skills, he also had fun imagining what to make: cars, houses, towers, etc. At his age of 6, we are also trying to teach him how to be patient and do things systematically. I am sure jigsaw puzzles would help him, so we might look for those in the Philippines. Boardgames would also be fun for him and for the family, too.
