Father and son

Every night after dinner, Terry will be very alert on the grill door pad lock’s sound and patiently wait and welcome his papa back home. Once he heard the sound of door opening, he will call out "pa" and help his daddy to bring over the water tumbler and place on the dining table. Later, he will wait till his papa finish shower and say “bao bao” (carry) when he saw daddy is free.

This was the scene we have every night. After dinner, most of the time he will stick to daddy and plays with daddy. He will bring toys to daddy and ask to play with him. Even daddy is working in front of the computer, he will run in and out the room and bring the toys in and out, just try be with daddy and get daddy’s attention.

I’m so happy that now Terry is closer to daddy better than before incident happen. Last time he not used to stick and play with daddy. Big Man also slowly realised that he needs more bonding time with the boy and for the home too. During the time after he discharged, remember those days that Terry refuse to talk? Actually daddy helps him a lot in bring back his own self. In a way that, daddy talks, sings and plays with him, he is more responsive than mummy or grandma did. Maybe he is too boring and very use to be with me already, so no big re-action.

Sometimes daddy will watch cartoon with him and at the same time play and talk to him. This simple way and action to interactive with kid is so important to develop a closer relationship..I saw many great moments how Terry spends time with daddy.

One thing which I’m proud of daddy that this also I didn’t know all these while - daddy actually can draw nice pic. There were a few times daddy drew some nice pics on it and I saw that, it is nice and neat. Check the drawing on this magnetic writing board.
He drew a Mickey Mouse. It is not easy to draw fine lines on this kind of drawing board, somemore it is so look-alike to Mickey. I try to draw it just like how daddy did, I’m not manage to draw that neat and look-alike.

Since Terry has this writing board, he likes to ask me to draw than he sketch. I don’t how many times he asked me to draw cars, almost everyday when he first new to this toy. Yes only cars, he loves cars. I rub and draw, rub and draw. Sometimes when I bored of drawing cars to him, I draw some other things that he knows and ask him to name it. He able to tell me correctly what is that. LOL! This shows that my drawing skill is not that bad la…*thick face mummy is chuckle*
