Big Kid vs Small Kid

When one obese kid 63kg in Standard 6 accidentally ran over a 9kg toddler and this small kid was flung onto the hard tarmac and landed on his left abdomen which in turn caused his mid rift left clavicle bone cracked fracture!

That happened to Aidan on last 5th April 2009. My poor boy kept on crying until he felt asleep and that night his movement was limited. Since we did not see any bruises, we treated it as hemmmm " sakit badan sebab jatuh" . After 3 days, we saw a swollen collar bone and for that past 5 days (since the fall), he has been whiny but quite tolerable on our side and we brushed it off and assumed that he was on recovering journey. Little did we know that his clavicle bone is at the tip of broken :( until my mak summoned me on Friday morning right after I settled myself in the office. Ohh man..panic I was, I remember I was puffing and huffing, driving like a mad woman to mak's house, pickup Aidan and straight to DSH. Saw his paed, took his X ray, again saw his paed and he sent us to Orthopedic Surgeon and Trauma Surgeon huhuhu..We were told that the swollen was due to the new bone forming on top of the current one. Since he's young, his new bone will completely reformed in 3 weeks. Therefore, no rough playing in the meantime. Syukur sesangat!

This boy of mine is now recuperating and his next appointment is this Saturday. By the look of it, he is recovering well.

Lesson learnt : kalau anak dah nangis bawak sajalah pergi hospital, no need to wait and see, wait and see :P. That's the difference between 1st anak and 2nd anak, aye?

When he was 18 months old

Wrote this on 4th of March

Last 14th Feb 2009, marked 18 mths of Aidan life journey with us.

What he can do so far...

1) Very much independent on his motoring skill, pincer skill...he can stack up wooden cubes up till 5 blocks, he can pull together his lego pieces which I think quite amazing, he does skecthes on paper when he can get hold of pencils or crayons, he insists to eat on his own with spoon/fork, he tries to take off his shirt/pants and even after shower, he'll get his towel and dry up his dicky..very very cute we thought. He even tries to put on his bajus and shorts and even his brother's undies! *roll eyes*

"My cheeky boy! Mind the mess"

2) F & B - he's very enthusiast about food, very adventurous, wanting to taste every single thing even tissue :P Not much a problem on that department, his favourite is nasi lemak with sambal..mesti merah2 baru nak bukak mulut :) and nasi goreng. He likes junk food too but I think I have done quite a good job distracting him from the junkies, he eats vege!!! yay!! even green vege like timun.. double yay!! On the beverages side, hemmm..he's more favor of plain water which is good and bad. Bad, because, he doesn't drink formula only mommy's milk, that is he'll get his dosage when Ummi's home from work. Been trying to get him drink fresh milk or even Milo (with fresh milk) for 6 mths , still unsuccessful! So, as his paed says, he still needs to take 50% milk...grrrr..worse still he eats little of dairy food. Try..we will...

3) Seperation anxiety - still!!..very much clingy when I'm home and when I'm away..clingy with the maid which is NOT good. Anyway, I'm very sure he will get pass of this.

"Muka trauma. 1st official haircut at barber, melalak sampai bingit telinga"

4) Vocab - hemmm still not much from him except for the common words : papa, mama, abang, kakak, ball, car, doggg, mamam (doesn't count eh)

5) Favourite toys are off course whatever his brother plays. They will play together until one of them cries. Nael will cry when Aidan ketuk kepala abang with anything he can get hold off or Aidan cries when the abang insists in playing his way...boys!! It's scary to watch them play..very very rough.

One thing I would want to remember is the way he greets me at the door when I'm home from work. He squels with joy and clumsily walk to the room, leaving me behind (still at the door) and climbs onto the bed and lie down on his fav bear pillow, ready to have his n*n*n time ..heheh...

"My little Tiger in Action!!"

Color blind? and prezzie

I recall when Nael was around 4 plus when we first have our maid joined our household, it was in 2007 (Nov). His eyes were big and mortified when he first saw our maid. My maid was actually had tough life back in Indonesia where she worked in her sawah bendang dan kerja ladang (we were told) so basically she was overly tanned, boleh dikatakan "gelap". From then on, he always say "Ummi white, papa white, Aidan white, Bibik brown" Each time I hear this I will "shesshhhhh" , "No!!" , " Tak baik cakap gitu ". But I never really stress on that seeing that he is just a kid and maybe fascinated on describing objects with colors.

Then, one day his conversation went like this :-

Nael : Bibik...lepas twelve apa?

Bibik : eight? (with her limited english)

Nael : Noooooo..wrong...Itulaa bibik nie tak tau sebab Bibik brown.

urrgghhh!! *horror*

Initially, we treat it as humour but then until last Friday.....

Moi : Tengah makan and suap Aidan

Nael : poo poo in the toilet and summoned me to clean him

Bibik offered to wash but Nael very adamant that his Ummi yang buat. I was so annoyed and ask Bibik to just do it..Then when they were done, Nael still crying in the room and Bibik told me this

Nael kata " Nael tak nak Bibik wash, nanti bontot Nael BROWN!!"

ROTFL!!!! but then I realised, he was very serious about it. I played along and asked him to show me, he even tunjuk his bare bontot!! What is it with my maid being brown?? *&)(&(^^&^*%$


List of things that Nael wanted to give me for my birthday :

1) Donut

2) CD song song

3) Small bottle Not big bottle like in Mak Ngah's room (I think it's perfume)

4) Ultraman

Suffice to say, I received none of the above except for Birthday song and 3 kisses, left cheek, lips and right cheek.

Bolehlah tuuu, I'm touched!

Working mothers and kids performance in school

Each time school going kids' mommies in this blogsphere write about their kids performance in school, it sure did send chills down my spine. They are our beloved vogue mommies Gart, OO, Butterflutter and Famy..Elisa and Lollis tak kira coz theirs are in International schools in foreign land :) It's mind boggling as I can't keep these questions at ease, will my kids suffer in their exams? will he do great in his studies? will he behave in school? will he be cornered by some school bullies? but mainly is about academic.

I know I have another 8 more months moonlighting..spare me...being kiasu paranoid parent, I can't help myself from worrying as I also have a live in examples from my nephew and nieces. Btw, fyi...Zan's clan has been camping in our parents' house for the last 4 months. So, I get to witness how daily my mother will talk about her cucus' doings in school and how I see the limited time my sister try to squeeze in teaching her daughter, revisions, homework for Sek Agama & Sek Kebangsaan in between her take home work, makan and other stuff. Fyi, my brothers' kids are sent to my parents house to makan, do homework, study and tuition. Therefore, I also get the 1st hand report on these kids studies.

Somehow, I envy and actually happy that my nieces and nephews are well taken care off. From what I gather from my mak, Year 1 & 2 are still ok, wait till you see their Math and Science in Year 3. My mak also been reporting to me on the Pemahaman & penulisan and how this one doing good as she loves reading, therefore, she has creative ideas on her writing skills..then comes to Math for Year 5, my mak will report to me.."yg nie suka buat careles mistakes laa" "yg nie tak paham soalan" "yg nie tak reti nak fikirlah" naik pening dan gerun jugaklah dengar :P

So, to sum up, to prepare myself for next year, I have sacrifice my TV time, more on focusing Nael's homework, reading to him, reading with him, doing Year 1 Math work book, do some English & BM workbooks. Bottom line is spend more time with him..sometimes, I just so envy SAHM :(

Posting nie takde purpose sebenarnya..semata2 nak mengupdate jer!!
