Mummy had a date with Nico~ Yes, only the two of us, on this date, for this short day trip!
All along, as parents, we tend to give the best to our first kid. He/She has the first-hand clothes, first-hand shoes, first-hand in everything he/she uses. To the kid, everything is so neat and beautiful, everything seems to have Daddy and Mummy by his/her side to accompany him/her on every moves.
However, I might not be one of these parents as Kimi grew up at PIL’s house until he was 18 months. Some of his “First” I might have missed it. However, we give to him the best that we can afford. Clean clothes, nice shoes, better school, and the lists go on…. And this is the advantage of a First Child at home! To us, he/she is our everything! We provide to him what we feel are the best for him.
Then comes to Kid No.2! We gave birth to Nico... With two kids, expenses rise up, the time needs to spend with them double up, housework never-ending, etc… Daddy and Mummy work harder so that our living expenses are covered, so that, we can provide to both the kids, a better living environment. At times, no doubt, we neglected the No.2. Nico was sent back from PIL’s house to us when he was almost 3 years at a much later age than Kimi. So, we also missed out a few of his “First”. The time spent for him was lesser too. For this, I always feel the guilt. I wish I can give him more time, more love, more patience...!
On this day, Mummy had decided to do something different with Nico, which I did before with Kimi some years back ~A short day trip for Nico with Mummy~! As Nico’s speech is still slow, so some words or things he still cannot express himself yet. All I get from his answer on where to go was to SIT BUS! So Mummy fulfilled his request on this! And he was really very excited throughout his journey in the bus. Glad that he enjoyed it very much!
A great experience for Nico… Sweet Memories for the little Growing Up Boy! Mummy captured his different expressions during the Happy Outing with him~ Hope he has a GREAT DAY out. Do remember this always… Mummy LOVES You!
Nico @ 3 Years & 7 Months+
