Off To Big Boy Church!

Knowing that my boy will be "promoted" to the bigger kids class in church (aka Praise Club) tomorrow, I had made some preparation. He had just gotten used to the current class and I was worried if he is willing to go to Praise Club WITHOUT mommy tagging along. See, now mommy stays with him but when he promotes to Praise Club, I wouldn't be able to stay with him anymore.

Back to the preparation part, actually nothing much. We went shopping at Westmall and bought him this nice Thomas & Friends bag that matches his shoes.

He loves it and we told him its for him to bring it to church when he joins the big kids class. He asked if I'll be there. I told him that he is a BIG boy now, a N2 kor kor, so he has to go join all his friends at the Praise club. Mommy will stay with baby Ryan at the baby's class. He asked if its the same class as the 2 jiejies. I told him "no" and explained to him that his 2 jiejies are in Bigger kids church. He looks a little reluctant, so I asked him if he wants to be a big boy or a baby (he dislike being treated as a baby). If he wants to be a big boy, a strong one (he likes that), he has to go to the new class without mommy and jiejies. Okay, he said and that's does it!

Today, we went to the baby's class and did some activities. Towards the last half an hour, we had the "graduating" ceremony for all the "graduating" students. He as usual refuses to take the certificate and presents and was like being stunt by a stunt gun.

After the simple ceremony, the kids were escorted to the big kids class and he even said "bye" to me. According to the teacher that brought them over, Nicholas was in his cheerful mood as he walked to his new class, unlike his grumbly self earlier in the class.

His graduation Certificate

When his class ends, I asked if he likes the new class and he said "yes!" *phew* I was so happy to see him settle in so fast, was still worried that he might refused to go to the new class. Lets see if he ok next week.

I am happy that my boy is independent but on the other hand, feeling a little sad that my boy had grown up and no need mommy be with him anymore Weepy

Panda Eyes!

See that bruise on his right eyes?! It may not look obvious on photo but the green is really green! So worried it affect his eye sight that I kept trying to test if he is able to see with his left eye covered. So far so good.

Wonder why the bruise is around the inner eye...Its looks painful to me but he doesn't feel any pain when I rubbed it.

I had been wondering and worried about his "5 second seizure" the past days and my church friends (expert mommies) told me that it could be that he had went into shock. Learnt something new today.Happy

They knew I am feeling guilty for the fall and had tried their best to reassure me that falling and bumping its parts and parcels of growing up. Thank you!

Bad Fall

Its a accident waiting to happen and who to blame? ME!! Little Ryan doesn't like to sleep in his cot and I don't bother to "train" him to adapt to it. So, I let him sleep on the bed with us. A little selfishness too on my part as I want to be with him, smelling him; curdling him and sleep.

So this morning, he was awake and was playing with the bolster where hubby was and the next thing was a loud THUD!! It was such a terrible fall with his right side of the head hitting the floor first! I quickly got over and carrying him!! He was wailing so loudly and then, suddenly, his face turns paper white (I'm not kidding), eyes closed and no sound for a good 5 seconds! Gosh! Its seems like eternity to me! That very moment, I prayed to God that nothing will happen to him and gladly, his face colour came back and started crying again. I was so glad to hear that cry! For that split second, I thought I am going to lose him!!!

After consoling him and checking that his head and every areas are ok, I latched him on but he seems to doze off and not sucking. Worried, I woke him up and played with him and get Nicholas in to distract him till he is back to his alert self.

He is okay now, but am sure going to monitor him for the next few days.
