Sleep Time!

People always said that -
"If you have a daughter, she is your previous life's lover"
Wah... now i know that all girls in the world are not easy handle included my little daughter.

My daughter's sleeping at night around 10 - 11pm.
When my wife not free, i will act like daughter's mummy.
Maybe, this is the reason why my daughter also call me - "Mummy" :( .

During sleep period, I need to sleep beside her and try to make her sleep.
When She still don't want to sleep!
I have to sing some baby songs e.g. twinkle twinkle little star, ABC & etc.
She sing together with me and more exciting and don't want to sleep!
Then, i tell her that i will go out and you sleep alone.
When she heard that, she stand up and climb toward and hug me and not let me go.
What to do?
Just pretend sleep as well. She lay on the bed and keep monitor me see i still there or not.

At the end, i have to take this step - no choice!
I leave the bedroom and i can heard she cries very loudly.
I heard it another side of the door and count 1..2...3... until 7.
She stops crying and i guess she sleeps already.

I have to let she more independent.
This is what i can do.
"She is my previous life lover?"

P/s: Vanessa, daddy want you to be more stronger and independent in future, understand.

My gals still sleep with me now. I m trying to let them both sleep in their own room cos they both babble talk a lot disturbing me to sleep. At times even fight just bcos the sister's legs are crossed over the mei mei's bed boundary..Grrr..

All i really want to say is that..... you must enjoy every minute of our child's growing up years, guess what they will outgrow us in no time.

Wah...can tahan to let her cry? and count till 7 only, then she slept? That's fast. Everynight I need to spend at least 1 hour to accompany my baby girl to sleep. She likes my touch, so i will touch her tiny fingers and leg and back, then she will sleep. How i miss her baby time. She grows up too fast. heheh....

The only time I can leave them alone in the room is when they are very tired, will doze off right after the nen nen. If not..sien lor. Big one needs too lie down besider her and pat pat pat buttock. Small one needs to cradle. Haih...

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

You are very great daddy. I mean, that's the way to train girls to be more independent.
To be honest, I still do not have the heart to do that.
