When You Don’t Have A Mobile…

We interrupt the Original Rockstar Flashbacks briefly for a pic of the new Baby Rockstar all settled in Rockstar’s old crib. Kings deserves a medal for hauling everything out of storage and coordinating the new furniture arrival and moving, and calling our nanny to come in earlier while I was in hospital… The only “big” thing we didn’t manage to get done as planned was the fixing of window blinds – missed by a scant few hours in scheduling.. And NOW my mum tells me I arrived couple weeks early too, and almost the exact same weight as Baby Rockstar… Information that would’ve been a little more useful a little earlier..

We chucked the old rickety mobile, and haven’t found a new one that can fit the crib… Baby Rockstar however likes to look around (Original Rockstar didn’t look around very much at that age, and instead had super-sensitive hearing, starting at every tiny sound – he’s still responsive to things he hears, which is why I “talk him round” so much) so I finally put Rockstar’s old Baby Einstein board book there for her to look at. Beanbag “glove” as bookrest. She fusses when she wants us to turn a page. (Or maybe when she fusses, turning a page works for the moment). Possibly we won’t be getting that mobile…

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    Who needs mobiles when you have a giant book with bright shapes and pictures and squiggly lines and when you’ve seen all from those pages, you make a bit of noise and the “help” turn the pages? ;-) She really does look like she’s reading the book.

      I love the amazed expression she has when she looks at things for the first time, will be so sad when she outgrows that, really hope it lasts!!

      He’s ok cos he figures he’s outgrown the baby stuff anyway.. One benefit of them being wider apart in age… (trying not to think about future fights yet :P)

      He’s been amazing – most of the time if she cries and he’s nearby he will say quietly “Don’t worry I’m here.” Now I’m just hoping he won’t bring home too many bugs while she’s still tiny… But attitude-wise I couldn’t ask for better from Rockstar. Well if the crying goes on then he climbs into his loft bed after announcing proudly he has a loft to climb into to hide from the crying!
