We got him enrolled, paid the registration fee and also had the payment schedule with the govt subsidy worked out...we will sort out the rest of the miscellaneous stuff, like his uniform etc etc in July...actually, i had my fears whenever the thought of sending Damien to pre-school comes up...what if he catches a virus easily and fall sick?...after all, it's a school environment and his immune system is still not strong enough yet...what if he kena bully?...what if he is scared and needed mommy?...what if he feels that mommy doesn't wants him around at home anymore now that she has meimei...*heart pain! heart pain!*...i burst out crying after i voiced out my fears and concerns to hubby...
To add on, i was reading this book, "Raising Boys" by Steve Biddulph, and it says that if at all possible, a boy should stay home with one of his parents until age three as childcare of the institutional kind does not suit boy's nature under this age. Many studies have also shown that boys are more prone than girls to separation anxiety and to becoming emotionally shut down as a result of feeling abandoned. However, my hubby does not see it this way...he shared with me his thoughts and opinions of sending our boy to pre-school at 18mths...after a long talk with him (amidst much wailing and tears), somehow he managed to convince me to look on the bright side of things...it's going to be good for him :)
Let's hope and pray that when the time comes for Damien to enter pre-school this Oct, it will be a smooth transition for him...i'm keeping my fingers cross :)

So it's going to be full-steam right ahead now - choosing c-sec date/time, making hospital arrangements, shopping for bb essentials, preparing for Damien's photoshoot on the 13/April (i'm definately going to 100% heed Michelle's advise, that is, to spend as much time as possible with Damien) and last but not least, to prepare myself for the birth, breastfeeding and confinement (urgggh!)...
Amongst this, it's time to slow down the pace now and make as much time for myself and Damien before the BB takes over :)

As for me, i really do miss him and also learn to appreciate his physical strength when he is around...especially now, when my tummy is as big as a beach ball...i'm not as mobile as before when it comes to caring for Damien and i relied alot on his strength...
Generally, me and Yayuk are still coping fine...Yayuk as usual is still mainly taking care of Damien and i'm still the main caregiver to him...There is this period in a day that are most tiring...it's during the early evening when i had to take care of Damien since Yayuk has to prepare dinner and wash up after we are done amongst other things...This window although tiny, usually about 2 hours, is really quite tiring...Damien is crawling, standing, climbing and throwing things around NON-STOP and basically tearing the house apart...once Yayuk is done with her chores and showered she will come and take over Damien...
I do admit that by taking care of Damien at this point of time when he is curious about almost everything, with boundless energy (even with a cough and runny nose) had me thinking that bb spacing is indeed very important...hmmmm....bottomline: "I'M EXHAUSTED"

He knows that he "bo siah" leh...coz when he trys to yell his favourite "ahhhhhh"....the sound came out quite funny (like a broken cassette player) and he stopped it immediately....hahaha....so funny :)
Now, i'm giving him heaps and heaps of winter melon water...but taking care of a sick bb is NO JOKE! I'm completely shacked to the bones...the sleepless night...the heavy heart...aiyooo...ok, i'm going to give him his lunch liao...till then, ciao!
