Last Day of National Holiday

This is the end of the last holiday. The holiday started from Sept 29, and ends today, October 5.

What I did in the last 7 days? I was in Beijing in the first two days, and spent the rest 5 days at home. With Yifan at home, most of the time, if all, were spent with Yifan. We went to the Lujiazui area the first night, went to Century Park, and Xujiahui at night. We also went to dinner with Yifan. Then we went to the Shanghai Science and Technology Museum the other day, and on the final day, went to hospital together.

With Yifan in the family, my life is dramatically changed in the last year. I read some blogs in the year of 2002, and 2005, and found out it is almost completely another me, especially when I looked at what I did in holidays. We didn’t travel for two years.

The other day, Wendy said, with a baby, the pain in life doubled, and sweetness tripled. I generally agree. But my formula is, the pain doubled, and sweetness got 10x. I believe it is because Wendy did most of the painful work to take care of the baby, and I was only the assistant, and Yifan brought me too much happiness, like a big toy or pet (is it the right word to describe my little boy?)

  1. That’s a wonderful way to describe your feelings about a child, Jian Shuo.

    :-)

    And even from a mother’s perspective, I think your “formula” is more accurate that Wendy’s. Eventually, even the difficult times when they are small seem to blend together into a blur of happy memories. No one can ever tell you ahead of time what an amazing change it will be. Truly, your life will never be the same.

    Give him a snuggle for me, OK?

  2. I AM CONSIDERING HAVE A BABY IN MY LIFE AFTER YOUR POST. SINCE THERE ARE SO MUCH HAPPINESS BEHIND BABY,S CRY AND SMILE.

  3. Carroll, I will. He is very cute, and everyone enjoys holding him in arm – while, sometimes he does not enjoy it as much as we do when he is busy working on some toys. He just just a little cute angel.

  4. Yifan is such a cute angel that I wanna to hold him in my arms one day. And I will give birth to a baby only if I’m convinced that I’ve found someone who can be a good father of my baby.
