I learned...

  • I learned that the first day that my kid was born, my days of partying will have to stop,
  • I learned that breast milk is the most important source of food, and an automatic breast pump is better than the manual ones,  
Medela Breast Pump Philips Avent Breast Pump
  • I learned to start remembering the sizes and brand of diaper my kid wears, so that i won't keep buying the wrong ones,
Pampers Drypers
  • I learned to prepare the right temperature of milk formula so that my kid will not be scalded by the hot water,
  • I learned to clean up the house, so that my kid can roam freely and mess up the place again,
  • I learned that feeding time is the most fun moment for the kids, cause i had to make funny faces to get them to eat, 
  • I learned to control my temper whenever my kids tries to irritate me but all they wanted was just to get my attention,
  • I learned to cherish the minute things that i used to have cause my kids tend to destroy them without you knowing,
  • I learned that spending time with my kids is better than playing the Xbox or Playstation,
  • I learned that Elmo was once my best friend and its great that he is still around entertaining us,

Playskool Sesame Street Big Hugs Elmo Plush
  • I learned to sing the nursery rhymes, although not to the correct tunes but as long as my kid likes them, i'm already a super star, 
  • I learned to identify the toys my kids like, so that i know what to buy for their birthday,
  • I learned that almost every item is edible or chewable and i have to ensure that they are cleaned, 
  • I learned to save my money, so that i can prepare for their high cost of education,

But most of all, i learned that there are still more things to learn and graduation is still a long way to go....

Singapore 48th National Day

First of all, i would like to say Happy 48th National Day Singapore!!! Its great to be part of the celebration, but we couldn't get the tickets to the floating platform, looks like have to settle with the TV at home...again.

My daughter can't wait to celebrate this event and she has actually volunteered to make the National Flag, i was quite surprised and this time without me suggesting in the first place. Looks like her child care center has taught her well.  In fact the center started the celebration earlier and she told me that she had a great time and hence wanted to bring the same atmosphere to our home. Before i knew it, she had started to make the Singapore flag.

Coloring my flag

Nothing too fanciful, but 100 marks for the effort!

Why the name "Pregnant Daddy"??


I have received questions about my blog name "Pregnant Daddy". Alot of people were wondering why i gave such a strange name. Is it because that i am really pregnant? Or am i actually a woman posing as a man writing for the blog? Well, to clear the air. I am indeed a man and no i am not pregnant. To make it easier to explain, i have uploaded a picture of myself carrying my kid in a baby carrier. Initially, i wanted to call myself "Carrier Daddy". But it sounds weird and distant. I wanted to have a name that portrays my close bond with my kids and also a catchy name that people can remember easily. It took me a few days, and it only struck me when i was looking at my wife's photo. She was few months pregnant when i took a photo of her. In that photo, her two hands were touching her stomach and she was feeling for the baby's movements.  To me, it is the greatest thing that a woman can experience. And for me to imitate or experience such phenomenon, the best alternative would be carrying my kid on a baby carrier. Hence, when the opportunity came, i took this picture. My kid's hands safely held by if i was pregnant.
