From daddy’s desk – Braedyn…now that he’s 1

Monday, November 27, 2006 1:53 am at 1:53 am 6 comments

At what point in time does a child’s personality come out? The personality that he/she will exhibit for the rest of his/her life? I hope it is not when the child is 1 year old because that would mean that Braedyn will be a spoilt little brat with a hot temper to boot.

Of late, he loves to scream, cry, thrust his chubby legs, the lot, every time we stop him from doing what he’s doing or wants to do. In the bedroom, his favourite would be to find a way to get off the bed and crawl towards our wardrobe (with sliding doors). He will make his way to the left (mum’s) side, grab the door and give the door a S-H-O-V-E, watch as the door wobbles shakily (what to do, Ikea wardrobe not meant for rough use!) towards the right (dad’s) side and wait for the WHAM before rushing over to the right to repeat the fun. Left, right, left, right x 10 times. I cringe each time the door reaches the end of the rails and the wardrobe groans.

Occasionally, he will slide the door open, make his way to the lowest drawer, pull it open and empty all the contents onto the floor. Does the fact that it is always the drawer where mum keeps her feminine items mean something? Sanitary pads, panty liners, even the maternity pads from SJMC (which I don’t understand why mum still keeps) all over the floor in a matter of 10 seconds.

Brushing his teeth

It used to be a joy teaching him how to brush his teeth. I offer him his brush, he takes it, I start brushing my own teeth while carrying him with my right arm, he follows suit and brushes his teeth. Sometimes, he drops his brush and grabs mine to help me brush my teeth.

Now, he just refuses to brush his teeth, my teeth or anything else for that matter. Any attempt to stick a brush into his mouth will end up with him giving us his famous temper tantrum. Braedyn, next time when your teeth all turn yellow, don’t blame Ba-Ba, ok?

Feeding him outside

These days we have to ensure that our ordered food arrives AFTER he has eaten his own food. Once any plate of food is placed on the table, Braedyn would automatically reject food from his container. Naturally, temper tantrum time comes when we don’t comply.

What to do? Any advice? It looks like Braedyn’s the boss now.  I sincerely hope his bad temper improves else I may require counselling myself.

    Yesterday I saw one girl about 2-3 years old at McD throwing tantrums because she was playing in the playground alone. Then came along few kids who started playing there. She got angry because she didnt want to share with others and want the whole playground by herself. Her mom decided to take her away from there and she was crying.

    I myself worry what would happen to my daughter later if she starts to become like this. I guess have to control from young.
