Moulding up with principle and values…


Today laye evening, Reuven throw tantrum and very rude. Keep insisting his way to demand to bring down the bubble gun to.the playground.

I told him ,next time as I already bring skate scooter for him.

Reuven : Now ! I want Now !

Daddy: tomorrow, I will bring all right.  I know u just saw one kid play the bubble gun…

Reuven : still insist and keep demanding, throw tantrum just becos no bubble gun.

Deep in his world I know he just want to play, and I am already prepared to give in.however not in this manner.

Daddy : today going to be the first cane , let’s go home.

Reuven : daddy no…

Then I talk to him with a little cane on my hand . I said I am going to cane you, you know why?

Reuven : he understand and he also admit he wrong.

Daddy: so daddy going to beat your left and right palm . Stretch out.

Reuven : daddy pain . No..

Daddy:  you know this is wrong and u got to faced the punishment. This is something we must learn.

Reuven : stretch out his palm..

Daddy : just tapped gentlely…

Reuven: look puzzled…

Daddy: I love u Reuven, everyday I also want to be your best friend and your buddy. I just want to hug you.  Could you help daddy ?

Reuven : nodded and give me a hug.

I did not take any pictures of his cries.

As I do not want he to remember or myself to rememeber this. Just want him to know sometime I am strict, is to share  values and strengthen his good principle that aid him in future. I want to be nice daddy and not monster. 🙂

Somehow or rather, I feel today he has grown up a little. 🙂

Bedtime reading


These past  weeks , Reuven started to pick up or I can said more interested in the story book. He will always ask me to read for him.

Book by book and over and over again. Exchange of ideas and thoughts are even more expressive that before.

Today we read about peppa pig dentist book, rain (George caught a cold) and last of not least reuven amazing bus ride as his final bed time story.

All these story books are good as it bring imagination and also to share the values of wrong and right. And also the consequence that each have to faced .

It also bring more calm and understand what is ‘dentist’ as I am trying to bring him soon. 🙂 as he reply to me dentist is to help clean . We open mouth ahhhhh . Lol. You can imagine how I read to him. 🙂

He kept his promise and he is fast asleep on my elbow as I share with him that tomorrow I will go library/bookstored to find others books that he like.

He is really very happy and he said he want to go…haaa. I try to find time. 🙂

Daddy love you. Sweet dreams:)

4 Expression of Reuven Loo


i think so far this is the best 4 expression pictures that i think Reuven express it well and i caught on time. it is not easy for me to take these picture. As Reuven will try his many way do the opposite way of what i am trying to express for me. Definitely require  super patience and brain juice to encourage him to do it.

hahah but it turn out to be quite good. Are you all able to identify each of the expression?

🙂 these picture are taken after his recent birthday celebration.

Looking at him really make me melt and i know he is growing up day by day. Getting stronger and more independent each day. 🙂 sometime just can’t believe he is not longer a baby anymore. hahaha 🙂
