Some random thoughts


I'm still pretty much in the celebrative mood. After all, it's still CNY.

We added a beach front to our itinerary this year. We were there with family for a couple of hours in the evening and stayed for dinner. No need for our brand new Samsonite luggage since it's not that far away and we wanted do to something a little something different from the norm. Besides, we had plenty of time to kill since everyone was on holiday. So, we thought it'd be the perfect place for the kids to fly their kites.

So, things have pretty much returned to normalcy (more or less). Hubby's back at work and I'm still pregnant. Oh, I'm almost 7 months...almost, I think. I've seriously lost count. Ash will be celebrating her 2nd birthday soon -- next month to be precise. And, she'll be getting a bike..LOL...

I've been thinking a lot about the coming months. Focusing mostly on the birth and if I've gotten everything I need. Plus, how lil' Ash will react, you know, to us having to pay more attention to the baby, etc...I sort of did a trial run...to test the waters and see how Ash would react. I held our friends' 4 month old daughter. Ash was ok at first but then, she started to whinge a little. I actually thought she'd start bawling straight-away but she didn't.

I'm not too sure if it worked. I mean, I don't expect her to accept the sudden change so willingly and not throw up a fuss. So, I was actually prepared for her to go all AWOL on me. But she totally surprised me by not acting up;which is why I am thinking that it might have worked. On the other hand, it's not reasonable to deduce anything from that because firstly, she was probably also distracted by the other 2 toddlers whom she was playing with and wasn't fully concentrating on me or what I was doing. Secondly, I only held the baby for a while (in truth, I'm not supposed to -- old folks' tale) and wasn't long enough for her to have any serious reaction whatsoever.

I guess, we'll have to wait and see. It'll be a challenge no doubt. I can't possibly imagine what it'll be like so I am expecting the worst and hoping for the best. When you think about it, that's all I can do.

Good to hear u're alright.

I think u shud just relax right now. No point worrying too much abt how she will feel. I think when it's time... you'll find all the 'experts' opinions too much...and you'll just have to listen to your own heart n mind for sensible advice.

i think if their age gap is narrow it's easier for them to play together.. mine was a 4 year so the jealousy by my 4 year old (then) was more obvious.. at that age, they have mental capability on sharing yet...

It'll be an adjustment for her, but I'm sure she'll love her sibling very much.
