It has been a couple of weeks since my blog post where I was complaining about a lot of things in life. I apologize if I’ve shocked some of you dear readers.
Sometimes I just need to write about things that are bothering me. It’s my best way of expressing myself and I feel better afterwards.
Of course, all of the advice and encouragement I received from you helped a lot, to put me back in a positive perspective and attitude about life.
Here are some of the ways things have turned out.
We’ve discovered that Rachel needs more attention. Her love language is quality time, and I’ve been trying to spend more time with her.
For the past two weeks, I’ve been there with her at bedtime reading to her and talking to her about her day.
I’ve spent more time playing with her.
I’ve taken her out on a couple of father-daughter ‘dates’ and we’re really enjoying that time together.
The result is, she is more eager to listen and more receptive to our explanation.
We have also decided to let her stay at home for a month, not pressure her to go to daycare until she’s ready.
Things are not perfect, but we can see something is working and we’ll keep trying.
We’re also learning a lot from Pastor Emily and hope to practice the tips she has taught us. Basically we have to ‘undo’ our mistakes and try to do it better.
Right now we’re trying to wean her off her midnight milk requests. Last night she cried for half an hour. Hope it won’t happen again tonight.
At our last checkup, doctor was unsure of the gender. He could only give us a guess so I won’t announce it on this blog yet.
It’s funny how some problems work themselves out.
I suddenly find more time to do the things I’m supposed to do because of some change in strategy.
So I’m being more effective at work, hoping I will be able to produce better results.
We’re hiring, so contact me if you know any .Net programmers or DBAs looking for work. Also feel free to contact me if you want to find out more about the job or my company.
Life has to go on. I just have to count my blessings instead of dwelling on the negative.
I just have to partner with my wife and give as much help and support as I can.
I just have to be more patient.
