Feeling not so good today, the weather is too hot here. Last week, i had lots of activity, i didn't really eat that well and spent most of my time busy on my pre-production work. Thank God, everything are nicely done, clients are satisfied and i can take a rest at home :) I am writing this blogpost on the couch, Silver is down the carpets watching youtube. Believe it or not, he gave me a great massage with his baby oil, what a lovely son, i am a lucky mother :))
So, last week i went to an expo called Indo Pet expo, far far away from our home. My husband need to go there for his Tarantula community things. So when we get there, me and Silver were so excited strolling around the expo and i think Silver is quiet surprised to see so many different kind of animals.
Silver baby were grow around the animals, Bill always there beside him, also his father's tarantulas. When we moved to Gunung Putri, where we live now, he saw more animals like chickens, birds, fish, ducks, swans, lizards, dragon flies, butterflies and many more. Especially when we adopted Ted, Pru, John and when Saroo was born, Saroo is became Silver's first pet.
Every morning Silver need to feed his cockatoo bird. He took this sweet corn from the fridge and directly run to Thoa's cage, this cocakatoo bird named Thoa. Here at Gunung Putri is totally different with the apartment's society. We hear bird singing every single day, we saw many type of lizards, caterpillar and many more interesting creature. This is also one of the reason why i didn't want to rush my time to ask Silver to an early school like play group. I think, he got more things here at his house than at the play group. Silver's heart is soft, he love animals and treat them the same.
One day, he saw this papaya tree with lots of fruits, usually we took it for the dogs, because it's not sweet enough for me but the dogs loves it. This papaya on the tree were already eaten by the bats, at night. Silver asked me, why is the papaya already eaten, why the bats didn't ask first? Me and husband were smiling and tried to explain to him about it.
Many things happens here around our home. Silver know how to deal with his 5 dogs, Silver know how to prepare their meals, better than me. One day, when his father were out of town, i take over the job to feed the dogs, believe it or not, Silver taught me to prepare their meals, like how many cups for Ted and for Bill hehehehe... At home, Silver got so many experiences, from his father's daily routines, and from mine.
I truly believe, first thing a human being need to learn, is from his surrounding, from his mother and father. Building his character to have a good heart, is not an easy job. As parents, we can't pretend, we can't fake it, first, we need to be one. And that, we learn from the animals. How you treat your animals, is how you treat others :)
