Playing In The Fog

We went to the Golden Gate Park the other afternoon. The fog was very thick. Actually we were in the mist. But it did not bother the kids. They ran around on the lawn outside the Conservatory Of Flowers. There were very few visitors. Basically we were all by ourselves. See, how free they were. Running and rolling down the lawn hill.

I Kiss A Girl

May I kiss you everyday. May I hug you everyday. Until my lips are no longer be able to kiss. Until my arms are no longer be able to hold. Just an impulse in the morning made me write this.

Being Visit

Who’s this delivery guy? Ha, it’s Uncle John. We had a big surprise on September 11 this year. Uncle John came to San Francisco from Hong Kong for a work trip for two days. So, we got to have lunch together and talked about families and friends. The kids were too excited, they only could see him on internet most of the time. Now, they would not miss the chance to hug and kissed him. After that, a few hours had passed, it’s time for him to said good bye. So, we walked him to the bus stop and said bye bye to him when he got on the bus. We miss him already.

Home Birth

If you had read my profile then you will know I have four kids. Three of them were born at home. My oldest son was the only one that born in the hospital. That’s because I was anxious and lack of information about giving birth. And I broke the water 3 weeks earlier than we expected. After laid in bed at home for 36 hours, I ended up in the emergency room. They gave me drug for induction to speed up the birth. It did not take me long to push. I still remember what my oldest son went through after the delivery. They showed him to me for a peek then took him away for testing right after delivery. It was few hours later until I could get to breastfeed him. And then they needed more time to observed him, he had to stay in the hospital for another 24 hours. I could only visited him at the new born ward and breastfed him there. I still feel sorry for him even now. That’s why I chose to give birth to my other kids at home. I prefer having unmediated labor and deliveries. It was because I had confident that I could handle it. My babies did not need to be drug. And of course, if there were mistakes occurred, the hospitals are not far from my home. There are few points I want to mention to new moms. Stay up right and walk during the labor will help the delivery become smoother. Also have some herb tea for relaxation. And try to empty out the bowel and bladder between the contractions. I guarantee you that you will get the reward after all these pain and exhaustion. That would be the baby laying in your arm.
