My Biggest Fan

When Hubby and I were dating, he loves taking photos of me. And so, every time we went out on our dates, there will surely be lots of photos of me eating, posing, talking, sipping a coffee, reading a book, playing the PSP etc etc. He made me feel like i am a gem in his eyes. Haha.

However, he stopped taking any pictures of me like 3 to 4 months after our wedding, when we both found out i was pregnant with KD.. You can imagine how ugly i had turned that i really dont have any photos from that pregnancy, with only one exception photo that i forced him to help me take while i was standing outside the delivery suites in TMC waiting for a room to delivery KD. I was not just bloated and my small butts gave way to big hips.. i had like at least 20 pimples or acne on my face anytime! 😦

Anyway, i am still grateful for the many photos taken of me when i was young, very slim and pretty. That i can show to my children how Hot mama was last time. *LOLx*

Anyway, only when KD was born, I have my biggest fan in my lifetime.. bigger than anyone in my life – my parents or siblings included. My son is my biggest fan!! Hmmm… i would say it’s pretty obvious, ask him who he loves or prefers most, IT WILL BE ME! hahaha. I am the most important person in his life, as of now still is.

Kyle mommy biggest fan

A blink of an eye and he is going to be 3.5 years old now and yet, he still cries for Mama every time, some times, he is so exaggerating that made people rolled their eyes… I am not complaining! I am just indulging in this sweetness while it lasts. 🙂

Something i must remember from the conversation i had when I went to pick KD from school today,

Me:  Did you cry in school today?

KD: Ya!

Me: Oh! Why did you cry?

KD: Of cos! Mama, Of Cos!! I love mommy…

My heart, body, soul etc all just totally melted on the spot and is still melting now!

i love you this much

Peek-a-poo

I left with the struggling KD crying at the door of his class today. It’s for his own good. Three hours later, I returned to pick him up and was peeping in to see what he’s doing.

The happy boy was very happy that the class is ending and teachers are asking them to put on their shoes.

image

He spotted me and shouted so loud that everyone outside can hear YIPPEE!! MY MOMMY IS HERE! YIPPEE!

image

He is so going to run out immediately and when teacher stopped him, he burst ouy crying again that he wants his mommy!

Lol! The school and other parents thought that I took care of KD since he’s young thus he is so attached to me. They were stunned when i said no, he was in infantcare and childcare since young. I think the strong attachment could be due to:

1) I am pregnant now and he’s insecure
2) I breastfeed him for 18 months
3) I did a really good job as a sahm for the past 2 months that he thoroughly enjoyed being with me
4) My efforts to bond with him since he is born paid off

Anyway, I gave him a present today. Something I bought long ago and wrapped up again. It’s to “reward” him for surviving this week. 🙂

Wah! He said its a present from santa claus due to the wrapping paper. He was so excited

Open opening opened quick!

Patience is what a child & parent need

School for KD has been as usual but he has improved today, 15 minutes before the dismissal then he started crying so loud that everyone outside can hear.  Moments later, the principal opened the door and allowed him out. So far he has been having the special privilege of being the first to go home.. the moment he is outside the classroom, he is all smiley already though there were leftover tears on his face. -_-” Principal said that he cried on off after I left.  :p

For the past few days KD had been refusing his lunch.  It always end up with him crying and me in anger. I told myself that I can’t be beating or screaming back at him every day. So today, I tried a new approach instead of bargaining with him to finish his food then I give him whatever he wants. I brought him home immediately after class and started on activities prior to lunch! Activities that he will love and enjoy!

We did so much today! Playdoh, finger printing, painting,  and a brand new activity!

Tadah! With the help of glue stick, we made this! It’s fun but not easy for both the small and big hands! really finger play!

And guess what? When we had lunch one hour later,  he finished his own bowl of rice plus a chocolate bread! All on his own, without needing me to nag or battle with him at all! ❤ <3!

Kyle’s 2nd day of going to school

Hmm, I find that the break that Kyle enjoyed when I withdrawed him from the childcare and waited for nursery to reopen was too long.

He is throwing BIG tantrums for his 2nd day of school today.  The moment I put on the uniform for him, he cried himself hoarse all the way from home to the school.  I had a hard time carrying the struggling crying boy, lugging his school bag, holding on his shoes.. all with my budging and heavy tummy.

When we entered the class, he was still a koala bear hugging me tightly. After many songs and he was willing to let me go and sit on the floor himself. 🙂 I feel so proud of him at the moment! It’s like he took the initiative himself without anyone forcing him! Little children are much more amazing than we think!

I just came out from the class when he’s settled down. I lied to him that I need to use the toilet and can he wait for me please? I feel when a child goes to school, it’s like the parent going to school all over again.  🙂 the parents are more anxious and worried than the child. Not just the child needs to feel secure and at ease.  The parent has to learn to let go too.

And thus here I am, outside the classroom bloggin on my phone. Making this another precious memory of Kyle’s milestone – transiting from full time childcare to nursery.

I still remember the days when I was the one going to kindergarten and my mommy was standing outside peeping in from the small gaps in between metal window panes. Being a parents in whatever year doesn’t changed much really.  Be it in 1988 or 2013…

Baby, I love u too!

My Tummy on 25 Oct at week 14

My Tummy on 20 Nov at week 18

I did not really announce my pregnancy to many cos
1) Probably it’s the 2nd time now and thus i have grown and matured, i dont need the attention anymore. 🙂
2) Those who really need to know, knows. And others are probably not as important to me
3) I have heard too many stories on MC etc, i just want to be real careful

But “When are you having a second one” is a very common question that humans will ask. It’s part of the routine questions of life.. How’s your results? When you have gf/bf? How is your work? When getting married? When have baby and etc. Having a baby is a happy thing and thus it’s natural that people will be curious and want to know.

So, apart from when i am gonna have my 2nd child, the next question will be Boy or Girl? :p I used to wish and hope for a girl right after delivery of KD (boy) cos I feel that a girl will care for her parents more..  i wanted company in my old age and a girl is always more sweet and dear.. Also, if i have a girl, i can fuss over her when she is getting married and pregnant and gives birth to my previous grandchildren that came from MY GIRL’s stomach… That’s how i felt. And at the beginning of this pregnancy, I was getting hopeful that it will be a girl cos of all those pregnancy symptoms i had. I told myself that if it’s a boy again I will definitely cry cos every time i hear others have multiples boys i feel “Aiya!” for them. However! When the Gynae told me that this bb is very likely to be a boy again, I didn’t cry at all! I was just very shock and wonder “WAH! How am I going to be a SAHM with two boys?! Boys are always known to be more active and playful!”

The recovery happened very quickly because it’s really easy! All babies regardless of gender are so precious! Especially my own! I love my own babies loads! A parent’s love won’t be any lesser because the child has a flaw or fall short of expectation! it’s nothing to do with baby’s fault and it’s just predestined that we will have two boys. 🙂 The gender and the life of our children is not something that we can choose in life like “I wanna buy a black dress or red bag”. No thing is to be taken granted of in this world. We should be grateful for a happy and healthy child cos what’s more important than that? My life doesn’t end here! It just starts again! 🙂 According to Hubby, he said that nothing is stopping us from having our third or fourth child. 🙂 And besides, boys are actually easier to care for and not as worrying and expensive as raising girls. Girls are as active and playful too and having two boys means they can play together without me playing with them. Raising either genders will have its own pros and cons so why worry? Just take everything into my strive.

For my 2nd pregnancy, all the pregnancy symptoms showed much earlier and are more severe. At first I thought if I was carrying twins if not how come my morning sickness was so severe! Then I began to think if it could be of a different gender.. But haha I was wrong too!

My morning sickness started very early from week 4 and the vomiting was very bad as compared to when I was carrying KD. When I was having KD, at most I vomit like 2 to 3 times a day, but this time round, at the peak of my morning sickness, I was vomiting up to 10 times a day! So bad that Gynae suggest I go to the hospital for drips! I also forget to mention about my pimples and acne!! They started popping right from the beginning as compared to when I had KD, they started only around the 5th month! :S I guess it must be due to ageing and thus symptoms are more obvious now. I also do not have much appetite at all, most of the time I am eating for the sake of filling the stomach. And cravings are pathetic. Everything that worked for me during KD’s time cannot work for this baby – sour plum, ribena, soya milk & soya beancurd, sweets, mints, milk, milo and etc. I only crave for curry and spicy stuffs probably, but is also no no for the stomach. I wonder if this baby is a real fussy eater? It amazing to see how KD loves to eat all the food that were my favorites when i was preggie with him! So this time round does that means my 2nd baby dont like to eat? haha! We will see!
