Friday, March 02, 2007Cry Baby
Little Skywalker has been pampered by more or less everyone since he was born. I guess that is mainly because he is the first of his generation within our family. It is rare to see my parents pampering a kid as they were so strict with us when we used to be kids. I guess retirement really helps...
Due to the protective environment that he was brought up, our little boy tends to be more of a cry baby. Maybe that's not the accurate term to describe him, I would say that he is sentimental or full of emotions. His mood swings are worse than women in PMS! He can demonstrate hundreds of different emotions within a single day, be it happy, angry, jealous, sad, scared etc.
While we were watching Superman Returns a couple of nights ago, his sentimental side went on full swing! When we reached the part where the superhero-who-wears-his-red-underpants-on-the-outside saved the 777 aircraft from crashing, nothing could distract his undivided attention to the screen. He didn't even paid as much attention to his own shows. Towards the end of the movie, where the main character were seen defeated and hospitalized, he sobbed (with tears flowing) uncontrollably although we convinced him to wait and see that his hero will be OK!
Little Skywalker is also the type who likes to escape from reality (especially when facing his fears). Like any kid out there, he dislikes anything that matches the description of "monsters". This is no thanks to his parents who took every opportunity to instill some fear in him in order to discipline him. This is evident even when it comes to watching his cartoons. For example, he will request to switch to a different show when Pinocchio was about to be swallowed by a whale. LOL!
Such a cry baby... and a really sentimental little fella...
