When I Grow Up

We frequent Marine Lake and the promenade here. Well actually we go there everyday hehe.
Sometimes I really need to be creative in my blog post as we really dont go anywhere but there,
and I have to tackle my post in different angles just so it wont be so obvious that every week all of my post is just about
the beach and the areas around it.

But it is home so I guess it inevitable that I would always really talk about it.
Like one time when my son is busy running around and just catching pokemons. We saw a lady fell of a stair few meters away from us.
We ran to her. She is old and she hit the concrete head first. Luckily she is concious but in a lot of pain I can tell.
She is trying her best not to worry people. She is so apologetic about falling. I fall a lot too so I know how she feels.
We were able to make her sit down in one of the benches. I am so happy that my son helped in clearing the bench.
We then put a tissue on her shin that is bleeding. I told my son to hold the tissue tight enough to stop the bleeding but not to tight to hurt the lady.
They are so happy of him and how he is there helping. I am so proud to say that I didnt force him to do that but he just really wants to help the lady.
There is another lady helping and we talked about so many things while we were waiting for the hurt Lady's relative to get their car to bring her to the hospital. The hurt Lady said my son could be a Doctor when he grows up for which he replied 'YES I WANT TO BE A DOCTOR WHEN I GROW UP!'
They left when the car arrived. Me and my son just sort the mess and I cleaned my son's hand and he said that he wants to be a doctor from now on.
And wont stop talking about it till we got home.

I am so proud of how he is not scared of blood.
Being clumsy has its advantages haha as we always have bleeding bruise and I guess he is used to seeing blood now.
I am so proud too of how no one is asking him to be there but he is there willing to lend a hand.

Lately I am seeing some changes in my son's action and it worries me. He is always shouting lately. A bit harsh.
I think he is growing up and of course there will be times when he would throw a fit but I am thinking if this changes is because of my marriage problems.
This term is really a tiring one too. There are so many new things that they are learning and I think it overwhelms him.
Add his extra curicullar activities to that equals one tired and tantrumy boy.
But this event made me worry less. He is still the good boy that I know and he is definitely just needing some time to rest.

When I Grow Up
Well done to your little boy for being so brave and helpful and to you too. Many people would not have helped. It was so lovely and refreshing to read #MMBC x

It sounds like he was so helpful and kind. It must have been a worrying situation but he was calm and did what he could to help. I'm not sure many boys would be as lovely #MMBC

That is beautiful! I hope he does grow up to be a doctor. Have a great week!

He looks like a cheeky little man, bless him! Good for him for his ambition. My 6 year old is also incredibly temperamental at the moment and I keep wondering whether it's a phase that makes her shout, scream and be angry... #ftmob

A big well done to your son for being so helpful and so calm and if he carries on like that then I think he would make a very good doctor later on. I can imagine that there are challenging moments too - it's tiring coming up to half-term and we've had our fair share of tantrummy moments too. It's moments like this though when you get that clear glimpse of the caring child underneath it all that makes it all seem right again. Thank you for sharing with #ftmob :-)

Your boy is lovely and would make a great doctor.
This term has been long and I have had a very tired girl as well. Hope you manage to have a restful half term.

Hi Merlinda, I feel the same about my blog posts as we never go anywhere different and I worry that all my photos look the same. I do like what you share on your blog. It's nice to see how others live.

You have every right to be proud of your son, he did you proud and I wouldn't worry too much about the tantrums or his shouting, he's a young lad pushing the boundaries.

Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC

Hi Merlinda, you know I never tire of seeing pictures of the beach and I am sure there are many, many other readers. So, keep those pics coming.
You should be very proud of your boy.
