I had earlier planned a birthday BBQ for him, but as we'll not be around for the CNY, I brought forward his birthday celebration one week in advance. I do feel a little guilty leaving him behind though, what's more on his actual birthday this Saturday, but I know he'll be in good hands with my sister. All the more no one to stop him from all the sweets and soft drinks! Gah!
|maybe i'll try to bake his cake next year|
|the husband thinks i exaggerated his height. |
okay maybe only because the son is really wriggly
when we tried to propped him against the wall
|all styled up|
|my favourite picture! |
uh that's not me though.
my model sis making the picture looked like an advertisement
|he's only has eyes for the cake|
After the party has ended and the husband and I finally went to bed, he turned around and told me this, "I think we did okay as parents. I mean we could have done alot worse, right?"
It has been an enjoyable two years with its ups and downs, scares and milestones. But what it has taught me is that with a kid, there's no hard and fast rules to live life by anymore. I mean, there is a time to teach, discipline and to instilled proper values in them, yet its also about loving life, living life and laughing together with life.
I think that's the best part with having kids. In the midst of teaching them, we discover more about ourselves too.
To become a better person, to stay true to oneself and most of all, I discover how much more I am able to love.
Guess that's what kids are for.
