Daddy Moments…

…this is one of those…

Look at the seriousness with which they are tackling the task of building their very first model plane together 😉

My dad – Tobias' granddad – had bought a couple of model plane kits for him cos my brother had a few and Tobias would like one too. The plan had been that my dad would build it with Tobias while we were in Singapore. However, as it turned out, between our many appointments and my dad working, there wasn't time. But it was decided that it was better this way cos that made them easier to carry home, instead of having to fear them breaking while en route, we simply packed them in their boxes into our suitcases.

The basic body of the plane has been finished but they are still adding little bits (decals) here and there so there is not yet a completed plane to be photographed. But they enjoyed working on it greatly.

I could have done it with him too – making it a mummy/son project. But I know I'm just not as good and I wasn't sure about which decals went where – the instructions were not exact on this point.

There was another reason why this became a daddy/son project – it just seemed like a father/son thing – don't you think so? This always makes me wonder about the question of how little boys wanna be like their daddy and little girls like their mummy. Is it genetics or more than that?

Even though Tobias spends more time with me, (just because daddy works away from home a fair bit), he still loves and sometimes even prefers to spend time with his daddy. He likes a lot of the same things which daddy likes. He is a daddy's boy 🙂

Being a Mummy … changes that happen …

i, Mummy, had alone time today – a few hours alone without hubby & son. i started needing this after more than a year of being mummy 24/7. i never really needed this alone time before – that’s Change No. 1.
Change No. 2. – i spent time today shopping alone & guess what i was shopping for … baby stuff!!
Change No. 3. – a warm & fuzzy feeling comes over me when i see my hubby carrying my sleeping son, walking towards me. A feeling that never existed before.

We, Mummy & Daddy, have always tried to make a point that having baby will not vastly change our lifestyles but these changes do happen, not all are desirable, but definitely they are not completely bad – esp. the ones mentioned above. The changes remind one that, “Hey, things now have to include a little person.” & Change No. 3. i think is one of the best parts.

To all tired mums & mums-to-be … think warm fuzzy thots … all is a phase, it will pass … they are angels, at times 😉 … it will all be worth it (esp. when they have babies of their own – my mum said this to me countless times & i finally understand!)
