Children - precious gifts from God.

Since the day I was born, I knew I was a girl full of love for other people. Particularly, I have always loved babies and love to take care of them as well. I never find their poops disgusting or am too lazy to bathe them, because I enjoy spending time with babies. Maybe you'd say I am only keen in the first few days and will lose interest if it was for a long-term commitment. Yes, you could be right, that is why I am not having my own, as I am not sure if I can give my babies 101% of my life....YET, hahaha. At this stage of my life, I still prefer to take care and play with my nephews and niece.

There are always disputes on how you should take care of a baby, and of course every parent does things differently. Whatever the method, I think we should always ensure the natural ingredients take in the priority. Even adults like us will reject (I mean the body) if there were too many artificial ingredients in our daily intake. So, when I have my own baby next time, I'll always remind myself to give natural ingredients to my baby, i.e. cutting down on processed food as much as possible. You can be my reminder too, hehehe.

Babies/toddlers should rest early at night, especially when they have quite a busy schedule in daytime. And be careful, I said 'especially not 'only'. So those who haven't had a busy schedule, they still need to sleep early. They need sufficient time to regenerate so that they can grow up healthily. I think it is quite hard for the young parents like you and me (I know I won't be young if I had a baby in the future) when we have been living like a night owl for the last ten odd years. We really need to put in big effort so that our children come first in all the things we do. Wow, what a sacrifice, don't you think? Once again, that is why I am not having any....YET.

Though I have no children, I can totally understand how hard it is to be a parent, better yet a mother, except for the labouring process. It is the toughest job of all and I pay my utmost respect to all the parents, if you are reading this now.
