I can still remember how I felt when I first knew that our first-born is a BOY. Hubby knew how much I wanted to have a baby girl simply because I was the only girl in our family. I was sad at first but of course he is still our first child and I realized during that to have a baby boy or baby girl doesn’t matter as long as he is normal and healthy.

Now, seven years had passed and I couldn’t be more happy and proud to have my eldest son, Ciren King. He had made us proud in many ways any parent could think of.
Celebrating a child’s 7th birthday in our country is the same as having a debut party when a girl turns 18 years old while 21 years old for the boys. But my son had made plans for his 7th birthday and he already asked his Dad if we could go out of town and have a swimming party
get together with his sisters and cousins. Wish granted as we stayed at Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park
last November 03, for 3 days and 2 nights together with hubby’s siblings and their families.

As he turned seven years old, I have noticed a lot of changes in him. He became more active now unlike before. He was known at his previous school as an uptight and reserved boy. He don’t want to mingle with his noisy classmates and he don’t want to be disturb most of the time. He is now in 1st Grade and he is continuously doing great in all of his subjects. Last Sunday he attended his classmate’s birthday party at McDonalds and he told me that he is one if his closest friend at school.

Yes, my son is friendlier now.
I was surprised one day when he asked me if I could buy him a chess board. I don’t know how to play chess (yes, shame on me) so I was relieved when hubby told him that he knew how. They played together and his Dad even bought him a book on how to play chess.

He also rides his bike more often now. Good thing his Dad recently bought a new bike for him so biking became an additional bonding activity for them.

Ciren had also been a big help to me in taking care of his siblings. I only allow her two sisters to play outside when they are with him. He had proven many times how responsible brother he is.

On a lighter note, hubby and I would often look at him and noticed his voracious appetite even before his 7th birthday came. He had grown so much and chubbier at seven. Oh and he choose his own clothes to wear now. He even choose his own jeans and he said he preferred the skinny type because it’s the IN in fashion whoah!
Seven years and I still couldn’t believe we have a big boy now. I am sure more changes are coming his way and I am so thankful that I have my husband to look after him and his siblings.
How do you keep up with your child/children during their growing up years?
