Mommy is really busy these days, so I asked her permission to log in and keep my fans entertained. I think it’s high time people out there see it from my point of view. I hear Mommy and Daddy calling me a “little big boy” very often nowadays, so I know I have grown up in more ways than one. Let me tell you what I mean…
I now willingly allow Mommy or Daddy to trim my nails (including toenails) while I sit comfortably on the sofa. According to them, I used to kick and scream whenever they tried to cut my nails, but now I don’t see why I need to. I treat the weekly sessions as relaxing manicure and pedicure sessions. Aaahh….bliss!
Also in the grooming category, I go for monthly hair cuts at the salon now. I love it when I put on the very colorful cape and my whole head gets a nice neat shave. Thankfully, Mommy asked the hairdresser not to shave my head bald, instead I come out of the salon in an awesome macho crew cut Top Gun kinda hairstyle. Daddy always says I look naughtier after a hair cut.
I also like to be independent and prefer to eat on my own if I can. Sometimes if I am in a bad mood, I will refuse to eat until they allow me to hold my own fork and spoon. Of course, 50% of the food I scoop up ends up on the floor, but it’s the thrill of holding the utensils that ignites my excitement. The other day I managed to grab Mommy’s steak knife in Chili’s and she almost fainted.
Oh, I have also learnt how to step on and off the escalator on my own now. Donno why Mommy and Daddy always insists on holding my hand. I try to break free whenever I can, much to their shock.
In terms of fashion, I like to think of myself as having inherited Mommy’s delectable taste in fashion. I absolutely love it that I am in wearing these groovy-looking cloth diapers all of the time now. Mommy must think I look good too because she keeps snapping pictures of me in them! Well sometimes Ah Poh, my babysitter, puts me in the traditional cloth nappy, which is fine if I am indoors, but I like to choose the design of diapers I am to wear if I go out. I mean the other day, they wanted to put me in yellow diapers with a blue outfit?!!! Come ON!!!! Of course, I struggled la…until they took out the blue matching diaper 🙂 For outer wear, I prefer comfortable shorts as opposed to pants and jeans. Everyone should know why.
I’m picking up some personal hygiene habits too. I love to brush my teeth after my shower every day now. Mommy will sing this lovely “This is the way I brush my teeth” song, and I will brush and chew and gnaw away at the bristles. Two days ago, I bit off some of the bristles, and Mommy suddenly stopped singing and became hysterical instead. Donno why. Oh…I also know now that cotton buds are used to clean ears, and I am proud to say that I can do so myself now…sometimes one in each ear at the same time. He he…
For my big toilet business, I use a special padded toilet seat. I have one at home and one at Ah Poh’s place. I love sitting on my little padded throne. Mommy always cheers and claps when I am done with my business and my favorite part is when I get to flush. Wheeeeee!!!!!
So do you agree with Mommy and Daddy that I am a “little big boy” now?
