Aidan's wearing the tee-shirt which mom bought for him in Brisbane..The wordings are (in case it's unclear).."I love my mom & dad but nanna & pop are best!"..Yeah, that's gonna please both grandparents alot Aidan's not in a very smiley mood today as u can see~

Sis evonnetay was commenting that Aidan is a pampered kid, especially with such doting parents and grandparents. Well, I don't see myself as pampering him now coz he's still a baby so basically, there's nothing much to do now cept for caring & loving him. I can't possibly scold him when he pees on me coz he probably doesn't know that he shouldn't do that. And well, I do enjoy dressing up li' Aidan and showing him off. Which parent doesn't eh?! And all those photo-takings heh! Well, I guess it's the typical first child syndrome. The first kid is definitely gonna have truckloads of pics taken (I was the second child so I'm probably making up for what I've missed out as a baby ).

Now it's the easy phase coz all he does mainly is cry, poop, pee, n sleep..there will be a time when we both gotta start being 'parents and discipline him when necessary. You know, hubby's parents have never laid a hand on him before when he was a kid whereas my parents were total opposites. I think us children were caned till we were sorta immune to it. Well, different families have different methods of disciplining their children and after what I've been through, I'll say 'spare the rod' but 'not spoil the child'..I'm sure it can be done !

Re: <>
Both my parents were fond of the cane..sometimes, us kids went to school with welts on our hands/legs and cried pitifully when friends asked what happened..Damn drama man! U know, what pple defined as child abuse now may not be deemed so then..We, as children did get it quite badly but it didn' make us (or rather me) any gwai-er..if anythin, I got more naughty thinking that no matter what I do, I'll still get a beating so what the heck :P..But all of us turned out ok..in a way stronger. My sis used to say she was surprised we didn't become delinquents. I know my dad is sorry for his actions and I don't even blame him at all..Any hatred I had was only for that moment and anyway, life goes on..

I guess my point is..don't bear grudges..no use hating so much and no matter what, blood is definitely thicker than water.

Yeah, I agree with what u said abt that certain recommended ways of discipling the kids may not work on all children.

That's y I'm gonna enjoy this 'blissful' period coz I never know when Aidan's gonna turn into a brat :P~

erh, is he wearing a skirt in the first pix?

yeah lah, i also kena beaten like crazy when i was young. parents only know how to use violence that time... :\

hehe..no lah *kok*..he's wearing this huge pair of boxer shorts! That's y look like skirt. He kept on 'tripping' over it so I changed him into the white shorts later :>

So now, parents don't use violence liao ah? hee..I think it depends on the background and mentality of parents lor. I can still hear my neighbour's kid being beaten every evening and he will be crying non-stop*sigh*

Oh..forget to add..the 'shorts-skirt' was also bought by my mom..it's supposed to be paired with the tee-shirt but it's too loud for my taste :P..Am taking this pic especially for mom so that she can see Aidan wearing her present hehehe..:)

just a weird thought. I think aidan doesn't quite look like a baby when he doesn't have any facial gesture on his face. :P
Mar. 10th, 2003 07:14 am (UTC)
Yeah agree..a lot of pple said he got the 'matured' look..especially when he has that 'buay song' face hehe.

I also got beaten quite a lot... I think you would feel resentful when you are young, but now that I have grown up I actually can see why sometimes kids do deserve a thrashing or two... And yeah, most of my friends were beaten too, but all of us grew up quite well... Dunno whether if it's the lack of punishment meted out to most kids these days, but so many of them are spoilt to the core - including some of my nieces and nephews. Little horrors.

Enjoy :)

Err..but I also know of some kids who were trashed like crazy n grew up bitter n distant from their parents. But I agree that kids today are really pampered! Will try to avoid doing so to my kid. Like what I've said b4, he must play mahjong n win his pocket money :P...

Heh..that splashsplash baby url was sent to me months back liao..when I was still preggy..!
