Blog 33.

Right, it’s September. I was still loaded with work and it meant that I still didn’t have enough free time to spend with my kids. But the truth was that both Ashton and Annabelle just recovered from their horrible Chicken Pox so even if I had time, they wouldn’t be able to go out anyway. Speaking of recovery, both my twins had now 99% ok, with the scars left on their bodies acting as a reminder of this horrible virus. Other than that, they were both healthy and happy, sort of.

Happy morning greeting!

Annabelle had grown a lot since the chicken pox episode. She’s becoming more of a young lady pretending to be an adult. She wouldn’t hold my hand when we went out and she absolutely loved telling people to do things for her. Very bossy! Her communication skills definitely impressed some. Annabelle was now pretty fluent with her Cantonese and she would try to communicate with you and to express herself with sentences rather than just words. It’s truly amazing how quickly she developed.

This perhaps was a girl thing. Then what about my boy? Oh well…

Ashton had somehow seemed to go the other way. I didn’t know how and when he started to develop this screaming habit. So instead of using words to express, he would just scream. He also would get into a hump and throw a tantrum at you.

Ashton was never a boy with patience, even when he was a baby. Unlike his sister, he would cry as soon as he needed something, such as milk. Then he was also a little lazy too. Even when he tripped and fell down, instead of getting up, he would just… yes, screamed. When he dropped something on the floor, even when the item was right by his feet, he wouldn’t pick it up. Instead, yes…. he screamed. This was quite an annoying thing.

When we ventured out to our local park, instead of playing, he would sat in the buggy and screamed. Annabelle, on the other hand, went on by herself and started climbing things. It was very difficult to reason with Ashton these days. So instead of reasoning, even in gentle tone, we let him calmed himself down. When he saw his sister playing happily on the ground, he would eventually ask to come out of the buggy and played. Yet this usually was about the time we leave the park.

Playing hide and seek!

So, Ashton had been missing a lot of fun lately, mainly due to his temper. I wasn’t sure if this really was a boy thing but when I learnt from my friends’ stories, it seemed that Ashton’s behaviour was quite common, especially among boys at his age. The worst news, however, was that in some cases, this could last until they are four or five!!! Oh dear. I really hope this would not be the case.

Having said that, when he’s in a good mood, he would be the prettiest boy with a smile that melts your heart. Like when we went to St. James’ Park the other day, he was very happy, especially after some ice cream.
