Happy Birthday Daddy!

Posted by Dawn at Thursday, January 26, 2012

Today's CT's birthday and to celebrate his birthday, I purposely knocked off straight after school to go to the market and buy groceries to cook dinner for him. CT is a very practical person and he has mentioned before that he does not really want any presents. So I thought, the most practical way is through his stomach!

Cooked sirloin steak, creamed corn soup with fresh flower crab meat, stir fry veggies and crispy pork belly..Also went to buy a cake for him for the kids to enjoy as well!

When I got home, the kids actually prepared cards for daddy. All thanks to my helper, Wina who initiated it!

Here's what Danielle drew for daddy!

She actually drew all that but my helper held Danielle's hand to write those words.

Here's what Caleb did..he did all these all by himself.

Very impressive and proud of them for drawing so well!

I have always wanted my kids to grow up appreciating people around them, not taking anyone for granted as well as to treat people with love and respect. And I know by insisting this, it will require a lot of effort initially. Its the same as teaching my children manners. Its tiring to always reminding them to say, "please" and "thank you" and to call people when they see them or before they eat..It's very trying but I know all this effort will be worth it when they grow up to be respectful and loving.

Parents, treat this as your calling..don't give up! The result will be well worth the effort you put in now!
