the potty training thing

Some parents like to toilet train their kids in an early age, some parent tend to wait until the time has come. In our case when our first born was about the age of 2, we toilet trained her with a hope that she will soon be independent and  won't have to wear nappy any more. Well in some way yes it work but on the other hand until she becomes fully "nappy free", there were more work that need to be done that just toilet training.

Later with our second born we found out that actually it is more efficient if we are listening if they are ready or not. This way without any pressure on them, they tend to learn toilet training faster than if you intend you child to do so.

No more kisses

I guess there is time limit when a dad get kisses from their kids. One morning i kissed her when she wasn't noticing. But she didn't like it and revolted.

Then her mom (as know from the women side) said that a girl at a certain age can decide if she wants a kiss from her parents or not and as parent I need to ask before I kiss her. She refused to be kissed and the rest (sister and their mom) also refused.

Now I am a kissless dad and wonder when the time will come back again.
 
stop kissing me, you stinky daddy
you should know by then that there is a certain age when she doesn't wanna be kissed again. next time you have to ask before you kiss her

The Bats

When I was a kid back when I was still living in Bali, I remember our mango tree always got ransacked by the bats shortly before the mango season come.

Now when the kids left apples half uneaten, it always makes me sad too see and also a bad memory recall of my childhood.

Funny, after telling the bats story to the kids, they stopped their bad behavior of leaving half eaten fruits gone wasted. It really works and our fruit stays longer in the fruit bowl. Also give me some chance to have some actually :)
 
seeing uneaten left over fruits just make me sad.
 
when the night falls the bats came and ransacked our mango tree. there were non left the next morning

push me if you dare...

This is a regular game we play from time to time. I seat or squat and the girls try their hardest to push me until I fall. Some of the time they succeed. This is also because I make it light for them.

Worst things can happen like drooling on my face....yukeeee
 
push me if you dare
damn...you made it. not too bad
 
try again....ha ha gottcha...
oh no....you are drooling straight into my face

She has grown

click click click....she has grown really fast, hasn't she
Kids are cute, but the time of the cuteness are limited. I remember when Neela or Juno were babies, they looked like the cutest sausages ever existed.

Few years later looking at the now and then pictures on our cameras, we were really surprised on how fast they have grown.

It is very important to record every precious moment.

father daughter conversation

how was your day at the kindergarten
 
Juno cried so did I but later we felt better. the baby giraffe died and the mom was really sad.
 
I have to confess that she is like me. We usually talk about things that are so abstract and most of the time doesn't make any sense. When we get into conversation we were like talking on a phone but different lines.

This conversation is recorded from my point of view.

Let me know what you think.

Joy in time of illness

shut up ... and let me sleep now

she fell asleep, such innocence while trying to read the story of baby jesus

Joy in the time of illness doesn't happened often. Being sick make someone become really short tempered especially when his/her sleep is disturbed by rowdy kids playing around. It's impossible to just to turn the off button.

But somehow I did and it was the nicest thing I've ever experience. Not just the fact that I was able to sleep again, but the fact seeing such beauty and innocent look in the of illness lifted up my spirit.

Bathtub Alarm

 
what are you doing...o.m.g...is that poo
 
bathtub alarm ....order for immediate evacuation
I guess this happened on 99% of sharing bathtub with your kids (which I won't do it ever again). It happened not only once, but lots of time.

The worst thing one time I found Juno was pooing, her sister jumped out but she still remain inside as nothing has happened......yukeeee
