My 2 older gals can be of great help to me when it comes to handling and minding Baby C, especially Alycia, who takes my requests seriously, most of the time. As for Sherilyn, she is always very playful. Sometimes she would ignore my requests and most times, she would create havoc rather than lend a helping hand. Today, she bounced the bouncinet so hard that Baby C was almost thrown off the bouncinet! However, sometimes the both of them can really make my day.
This afternoon, after Baby C had done her poopie business, I wiped the poop off her bum. I then asked Alycia, my regular helper to help me hold the water faucet in the bathroom whilst I washed Baby C’s bum. Today, Alycia quickly enlisted the help of Sher and asked her to bring the nappy…. which Sher happily did and waited with the nappy draped across her shoulder, outside the bathroom. After washing baby’s bum, I asked Alycia to wash baby’s hands and feet, which she did quite well. Then I asked Sher to wipe baby’s feet and hands, which she also did pretty well. With these 2 rascals helping me, the back-breaking chore of washing up baby’s bum can be quite a breeze…. though my back would still hurt as carrying a near 7kg weight with both hands and washing her bum simultaneously with my back bent can be very strenuous on my back. If only my 2 rascals could willingly and earnestly help me all the time, my back wouldn’t hurt so badly at the end of the day, everyday.
We brought Baby C to see the pediatric surgeon at SJMC today. Find out the outcome of our second consultation with the pediatric surgeon at my health blog.
