I am scary…I don’t mean Wesley is trying to frighten us or what. Actually what Wes meant was that he is scared of something. Little bits of his growing up I will come to forget in time to come. Already I have forgotten bits of him when he was a baby, premature at 36 weeks and 1 day old. Having to endure an operation with GA. He was that shy little baby that hardly cry for milk. Soft and gentle if my memory served me well; I do recall that sweet dimple of his; Wes loves water, in fact as a little baby when we took him to hua Xia for baby spa, he took to water, without tears. Almost 4 years on, he is still love water, probably this came from me? Still doesn’t like his fruits, although everyone including those from nuture stars school tried but to no avail. Next, we have been able to get him off the diapers during afternoon naps largely thanks to committed teachers like sandy and Zhou 老师。
Palate wise, we tried to encourage and introduce him to a variety of food but Wes still loves his dark sauce. The funny boy often ask us what do you want to order; most of the time, when he is playing his play doh or kitchen toys. Yup, he loves his play doh and the age he is now, making a mess is all but a certainty.
Recently, he asked me daddy, can you read me some stories, of course I complied, read him 5 stories and at the little red riding hood, he said:” Daddy, I am scary.” It was a funny moment, since he was referring to the big bad wolf and not himself. If he is scary, then what becomes of the world, I chuckled. And there there was a couple of times, he invited me to sleep with him, a mummy only exclusive until lately. Not that I am complaining but truly I am delighted when he does that.
Of course, there is still issue of him being addicted to TV and iPad for that matter. We as parents kinda so guilty of in the days of smart phones and such.
Time truly flies when you have kids in your life. Just the other day, someone commented that one plus one does not equal to 2; growing up with a 5 month old baby and a boy of 4; the numbers don’t add up but the rewards immense
