It has been a week since reading the article on the unfortunate horrific crash that has left a 3 month old suddenly alone in this world. With the care and concern of the paternal and maternal families, I hope she will grow up in a loving and caring enviroment. With 3 children of my own, the innocent eldest 18, playful son 16 and naive youngest 11-there are still so much more I want to tell them. Children these days are just too busy. Busy with acquiring knowledge,on just about everything except on the basic survival, pursuing their passion and bonding with their friends, it's hard to find a quiet time. Many a times knowledge is acquired through observation. Spending quiet time at home and helping out in daily chores. These are the expriences that makes each, unique. Only youngest, follows me on supermarket trips. She knows which are the brand of items we normally buy, how to choose a fish or dad's favourite snack. When son is asked to buy a loaf of bread, I have to give him the bread wrapper as sample!! My eldest, only last night she learnt how to cut a starfruit!! Surprised when MDH commented that the pips have to be removed. "How??" she asked.
