CNY eve

Like last year, we didn’t go back to husband’s hometown for CNY, so we will have our reunion dinner at my parent’s house.

Actually this is not the first time I brought Sarah there, but she just can’t stop crying from the moment she stepped into the house…sigh.

She is afraid of the sound of the rain hitting the zinc roof and also the vrooming sound of motorcycle passing by. She doesn’t want to be carry by anybody other than us. Finally I manage to comfort her by feeding her with favourite food (plain rice with gravy), then only she calm down and started playing with the toys.

Overall, she did have some fun playing with her cousin after getting familiar with the surrounding of the house.



But the crying didn’t stop there…

We headed home at around 11.00 pm. And we thought that Sarah would have a good night sleep after a tiring day, alas; she was frightening by the raucous sound of the firecrackers at midnight, so she cried again…sigh.

Now we can only pray it will be fewer firecrackers on the following nights…it’s going be a long, long CNY season for us.

Well, I guess you need to bring her back to your mum's place more often Joanne.. Ashton also like that when we brought him to my inlaws place lsst time, but after more frequent visits there, he got used to it alredy... Just take some time...

On the other hand, Ashton is so fascinated with the firecrackers and bombs.. i'm the one being frightened off by them! *shy shy*

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Esmeralda - Yes, my mom also suggested I should bring Sarah back to her house more often.
Ashton was also like that ya? I think maybe they just not used to the new environment.
- O, Ashton likes the sound of firecrackers huh! Brave boy! Actually I also afraid of firecrackers..hehe.

Mommy Moon - Gong Xi Fatt Chai to you..

Joanne..Sarah behaviour is just the same to Tina..afraid rain hitting the roof and firecrackers. During Hari Raya..she also cried non stop hearing that..also sigh..

Esmeralda said...

Yup Ashton was like that previously, but mine is the other way roun, it's with my inlaws, not my parents.. with my parents his very familiar...

I'm the one being so afraid of fire crackers, esp bombs..

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Esmeralda - I see.
Maybe you do bring Ashton to visit your parents more often, thats why he is ok with them..

Sha - I really thought that Sarah is the one who is having this "fear" problem, but Tina also the same.
- So is Tina still scared with the sound?
- When I heard Sarah cried, I also dont know what to do...I only can tell her that, nothing to be afraid about...

Yen Ping - I really hope that Sarah wont be that "xiao dan" when she grows up, or else really susah leh...
- Was Natalie last time also like that, scared of loud sound?
- Good that now she likes fireworks alot. Actually it is very beutiful scene but it is really loud sound.
