"level with your child by being honest. nobody spots a phony quicker than a child."

i believe in that + i think a toddler could better sense another person's motives + attitude towards them + would openly reciprocate. hence, me declining to hold a baby younger than six months old. they can always sense my anxiety + would go crying every single time. takoot laa pegang baby kechik, nanti salah pegang, tergolek dog how?
what's up with the talk about babies? well, yet again i spent the weekend surrounded by toddlers. even when i'm hanging out with my single friends, we got dragged to the company of them toddlers. it's like they've decided to beramai2 invade my world. come on! there's other interesting people to pester out there, why me?
yesterday, i met little 2 1/2 year old isyraf; he's adorably smart, sharp + curious. after the short "cak! cak! cak!" of getting to know each other, he gave me a bearhug. ayoh! touched siot by the kind gesture. bye bye cik pms! it was me he hugged. but then i didn't have the stamina to lambung2 him non-stop, now thank goodness for cik pms, who even doubled up as a guitar teacher. i ended up being the english teacher going through his vocabulary, offering the right pronunciation, "pumpkin" ... "eekin" ... "pumpkin" ... "eekin" ... "nose"... "nosh" ... "nose" ... "nosh". :op
on saturday, there was a birthday party. nad has got brilliant images from the do, mine seemed too amateurish compared to hers. shy ok! so, i'm supplemeting my overview to her detailed observation of arina's birthday party. more images + reporting @ nina’s+nad’s
