bleakness everywhere..

It's really depressing when you read the papers or watch the daily news..Previously, the focus was mainly about about the faltering economy,the major retrenchments, the poor job market and once in a while, you read about abandoned babies etc..and now, it's the Sars outbreak, the War in Iraq..Everyday, you get inundated by all those images of mass destruction, death, sickness that one can't help but be affected by it all..

U know, I used to have this mentality..why have children and bring them to this really fucked up world for?!! Well, I haven't exactly become an optimist when Aidan arrived [yeah, so much for contraceptives eh],but I might as well do my best to prepare him for the life he's gonna face. I don't regret having Aidan. He's been a joy and a blessing. I just hope that he'll grow up to be well-adjusted and not turn out cynical and unappreciative, like some of the youngsters I know..

I have to admit. I've been pretty ambivalent to all that has been happening in the world 'cause they didn't affect me directly. I guess you could say I was parked safely in my comfort zone and I didn't wanna budge from it. But when something like Sars occurs, you get shaken up and realise that one shouldn't be so uncaring..You know of friends' friends/relatives who are affected and you start fearing for your own loved ones' safety. When I read abt 'Pei Cai' sec school, I thought ..hey.. my parents in-law flat's just next door and that it's not far from Hougang where I am.. and you start fearing more...

Back at the homefront, both my hubby and mom-in-law have been sick for a while. Since last week, they've been coughing and suffering from a bad throat. Their medication doesn't seemed to be working that effectively. Fortunately, the main care-takers of Aidan - me & my father-in-law have stayed relatively healthy. Just hoping that both of them get well soon..

__________________________

Since I'll be stuck a home for a while coz I don't wanna bring Aidan out, I've been watching Sex and the City DVDs starting from Season 1 (even though I've watched it already)..annnnndd lo n behold, li' Aidan seems to enjoy watching the show too. I'll put him on the sofa next to me, and I can see him lifting his head up to look at the images on tv. So cute, that li' boy. He actually stays in that position throughout the show and only starts fidgeting when it ends. Hmm, maybe it's the nudity and Samantha's breast that he's attracted to !


Doesn't Aidan look cool in his black teddy!

The li' bugger craning his neck to watch SATC..:)

Oops..I got it wrong. Dunno how I read it as 'republic' *bish myself*..Nic, it's hip little people~~! Aidan looks as if he's doing some yoga moves..

Too cute lah. *melts*

So true. Just from some people i know, makes me don't ever wanna have kids. Ever. But then it occurred to me there's a possibility i could change all that, not that it's noble, but isn't that what parents are supposed to do? Heh don't know if i'm up to it when the time comes or not..

oh well
Definately agree that with these news, you can't help but be a little worried. Stay healthy, and keep away from crowded places. Hopefully the doctors will find a vaccine for Sars soon.

Don't know if you realise this, but i'm sure your pictures of Aidan bring cheer to those reading. Thanks!

PS: I'm getting SATC season 4! ;)

TV & black romper
Well, a bit of TV wouldn't hurt :P

The black romper is cute...might be starting a range of baby's clothing this year to match a baby accessories brand.

Any input for the baby collection?

Re: TV & black romper
Oh yeah..that's what it's called..a Romper *must remember*

Hmm..well, guess u can tell from Aidan's clothings, I go for really unique stuff with a tinge of humour. V rare in Singapore. Most of my nice stuff is from Australia. Life shop's baby stuff is pretty cool too but on the expensive side. The baby boy stuff in Singapore is so awful..n too generic looking. They sell nicer baby girls clothings imo!

the teddy is so cute on lil aiden :) makes me want to pinch his cheeks *control*

You find that pair of adidas shoes (nic uses as icon) at Peninsular Plaza. The real thing is so damn cute. I would hv bought them for Herlene if not for the fact that they don't have size for her feet *sigh* so loud and funky shoes :) So I got her a 5th Avenue boots instead. Very gerak lah!

Cool Aiden! Aiden is one cute boy, btw, where did you get inspiration for his name? Sounds unusual for a chinese. These days I am staying at home too but to be safe then sorry I always say! I think the Life Shop has a website, here is it http://www.lifebaby.com/accessories/index.htm I think this should be the one you talking about. I also saw one bull terrier toy that you got for Aiden. I use to have the REAL thing but .... send away, long sad story..

Re:
Eh..actually, it's AidAn..:)
Hmm..honestly, I liked the name Aidan coz of the character Aidan in SATC. Superficial hor :P~ But I'd first heard of the name thru another actor, Aidan Quinn. Okok..I'm a tv/movie freak!

Hey..thanks for the Lifeshop link. Would be great to preview their latest baby range :)

Wow..u had a bull terrier? They are so cute eh but I heard kinda fierce.

Cynical = me.

Unappreciative = me sometimes.

So you're referring to me? *bawls*

"Hmm, maybe it's the nudity and Samantha's breast that he's attracted to !"

hehehe, that's too funny. Aidan's got some kind of odd baby attraction to boobies.
He's so cute. He can't crawl yet, right? When he turns 6 months -- OH MY! He's going to
be EVEN MORE lovable. That's my favorite age group for babies.

Re:
Yeah..Aidan gets all excited whenever I prepare to nurse him...so there's 'breast anticipation' there..heh..too much info here I guess. And Sam's boobies are definitely bigger so erm..= more milk? *grin*..
Yeah, he can't crawl yet..merely attempts to by kicking his hind legs. Ya, I agree..6 mths is best coz their back/neck is firmer & they can crawl/sit down then. So looking forward to it :)
