From Zero, Now THREE

Having children is a blessing for a husband and wife.

Three years ago, I gave birth TT, everything was out of our plan. The water bag bursted and we have not ready yet, my mom had not come yet. Honestly, I was not really that panic, it might because this is the second pregnancy.

I went to the hospital alone with a taxi. My husband had to take care of JJ at home. He was 21 months old that time. No contraction, but the water bag bursted already, this made me a bit worry and I asked for an operation. My doctor was very calm and asked me to wait.

Well, my husband insisted to accompany me at the labor ward, but how was about JJ? He cannot came along.. I am glad that I have one best friend, who was willing to accompany JJ staying at home and took leave from her office. She stayed overnight at my place with JJ and took a good care of JJ. JJ was fine with her. Anyway, they quite close to each other.

Since I was still at the normal ward, my husband stayed at home with JJ. One of my friends, accompanied me at the hospital and chatted with me. Midnight, the contraction came, and I called the nurse and they moved me to the labor ward. My friend had to go and my husband came to accompany me.

In the early morning around 2 am, TT born. We were so happy, but he was small because he came out earlier few weeks. But we were happy because he was very healthy. He had to stay in the hospital for four days because he was small. But then, we can brought him home at last.

JJ was very happy, I still remember the first time he can called his brother’s name, he was very glad.

TT grows well, his motor movement is very good. House become more merrier with one more family member.

Now he is 3 years old. He is a big boy now, goes to school already. He started to recognize some Chinese characters.  He knows a lot now. He is very chatty. He loves his brother, JJ. Most of the time, he will share what he has with JJ. They love each other.

We really see how much God loves him, nurture him and bless his life.

Happy birthday TT,

Jesus loves you

Daddy, Mommy and JJ love you.

Thank you God for TT

Make Your Own Story

ONE DAY………………

I have been idle for last few months and now I am so happy that I can come back writing on my blog.

Last few months, I have some problem with my time management, but I am glad that now is ok 🙂

Well, if you work as an accountant, you should know what is MYOB. If you like to eat sandwich and you stay at Australia, most probably you know what is Mr. Bird’s MYO.

Make your own… You also can encourage your children to do MYOS. Make your own Story 😀

Recently, we make a story telling to JJ and TT without the story book. Our purpose is to encourage them to do the same as we do. No story book does not mean No story. They will listen carefully and there will be their turn to do the story telling. They enjoy it! They cannot wait to take their turn!

As I mentioned on my previous post, that I read the story to both my kids since they were baby, and they really like story telling until now. JJ can read the story book already. And he really happy when we bring him to the book shop or library. Though TT still cannot read yet but he also like to go to the book shop or library. JJ and TT’s teachers told me that both of them are very attentive in listening on the story.

Once, JJ’s teacher told me that JJ is very good in story telling (Make his own story). I am so proud of him. Every time JJ makes his own story, TT will start to follow what he does. TT has started to make his own story already.

Let me share with you one of the stories of JJ (4 years old plus) and also one of the stories of TT (coming to be 3 years old), though it is only a short stories but we are glad with their efforts 🙂

JJ:

He gave the tittle of his story: The Boy and The Tiger

“One day, the boy is playing outside. His mother is cooking. The tiger is coming. The boy is running and the mother saves the boy and brings him home. The End”

TT:

He didn’t give and tittle to his story 🙂

“One day, the boy doesn’t like to eat strawberries. He eats apple. Hmmmm… Nice…

The End”

Those two stories are very simple, but they use their imagination to make their own stories and they were very happy when they have us as their audiences. We applauded and said ” Nice Story!” as a reward for their efforts after listening to their stories. It is to encourage them to make some more new stories.

I heard from some of my friends, they also do the story telling to their kids. Yes, we need to do it. It will build their own imagination and creativity to make their own story. And they will ask us to sit down and listen to their story just like what JJ and TT do.

I believe that some of you might have the same experience as mine. It would be great if you are willing to share with us here 🙂
