The Baby Just Turned Six Years Old

OMG! It has been four years since the last time I posted in this blog about Casey. I have been so busy. September 2014 was a critical time in my eldest child's life who was then in medical school. (Casey's Kuwa). I don't have to go into details but Kuwa has since graduated, passed the boards and currently working as a physician in a major insurance company. 

Anyway, Casey is now 6 years old. She turned six last February 12, 2018. We had a simple party at home with guests Dada and Mama Tring. We had cake, ice cream, chap chay, siomai, sushi, and fried chicken. All of us enjoyed the food. 

Then the next day, being a school day I treated my classmate to McDonald's chicken and coke. My classmates enjoyed the food and we had fun.

Catching Up on Casey's Activities

I noticed that it has been more than a month from the last time I posted about Casey. She is exactly 2 years 6 months and 7 days now. She has become a talker, a good eater, a good dancer, and a good singer.

She says "deloom" for ballon.
Her Daddy calls her Miss Independent
She calls her dad's mom Mama
She calls her mom's mom Lola
She calls her mom's dad Papay
She calls her mom's brother Owa (for Kuya)
She remembers Kuya Josh, Ate Chloe and Jose.
She remembers Ate Chloe telling her to always tie her hair.

When Casey was born, I made a lens about her life in Squidoo. Unfortunately Squidoo closed but I hope I can recover that article in Hubpages where Squidoo moved all their content to.

I went home to the province last week of August

Casey is a Happy, Terrible-Two Baby

Casey is 2 years and half and she is a "terrible two" baby, feisty and independent-minded.

It is a challenge raising a two-year old very independent-minded, very confident baby who knows exactly what she wants. 

Wikipedia's descriptions of a terrible two kid perfectly fit Casey to a tee:

Casey is often defiant; shouting "no" to everything she doesn't approve of.
She is very bossy, demanding from everyone and expects immediate attention by crying. Casey is very clever in using crying to get the attention she wants. 
Casey is very impatient.

Why Modern-Day Parenting Is in Crisis


"5 Reasons Modern-Day Parenting Is in Crisis, According to a British Nanny" is an article written by Emma Jenner that I've just recently read which identifies 5 reasons why modern-day parents could be raising children who might grow up as self-centered, spoiled, selfish, and rude adults. The five reasons as described by the author are:

 1. We always want to please our children. Parents especially us, moms, always want to please our children, we always want to give what they want.
2. We don't discipline our children. The author is saying that children nowadays lack discipline because we do not do our part to discipline them.
3. People in the community don't care as much anymore.
4. We are teaching kids not to be patient.
5. Some parents forget that they have their own needs to meet, too.
