“Happy” Year : Kid’s version


Welcome to a brand new year! 

This is going to be a tougher and more challenging year for us at home, with Brendan taking his Primary School Leaving Examinations, more critical targets at work, hopefully less travelling by Papa Ed and…. MORE. 

The first thing I actually aspire to do is more exercises for everyone at home to stay healthy and it is so important to stay positive and confident to make things happen.  Hope I do not slack along the way (as I always do when it comes to that exercise routines). 


This year, I thought it would be interesting to hear what our kids at home have to say about what they value in the old year and what they wish for in the new year. It would also be a valuable record to maintain as they grow.  Treasure while I can, when they are willing to share with me their versions…..



Darren proves to be the fun-loving kind (natural of a little boy who craves for toys and enjoyment more than anything else) and I am glad that he is actually happy to go to school to learn *smile*. Hear him out:

“I am happy that I can buy more toys in 2010 and there is peace. In new year, I want to go to school to learn more things, buy more toys and play with family more.”

[Hmm....a well-balanced wish, for a peaceful world and living, with fun but not forgetting his studies. It also shows how important our kids value our quality time to be involved in their play and fun moments.]



As for Brendan, he has not forgotten about the people who take care of him and is contented being happy. Happiness to him means:

“I am thankful for the good results, the meals cooked by grandpa and grandma, a fun vacation trip with the family, and papa and mommy are quarrelling less.  In 2011, I want everybody in the family to be safe and healthy, do well for my PSLE and happy family.”

[A very family-oriented wish, paying attention to his studies as usual and it shows how important it is to be careful in the management of couples' arguments/differences because our kids actually observe us.]


We know it takes efforts by ourselves and our loved ones to achieve our wishes and sometimes, things are just beyond our control.  

However, I hope these resolutions help to keep our kids guided and at least it helps us parents understand what is the key to their happiness and what truly makes them happy. 

It will be interesting to hear their definition of  happiness as they grow *smile*.
