EnHui were jumping with joy when I told them, we are going to babysit S for a couple of days. En made two presents for S, out of recycle boxes and wrapped it with plastic bag! (Hope you like it, S ! ;p)
Early in the morning, they waited eagerly for her arrival. I was concern on how to create a bond between S and I.
When S arrived, I was a bit anxious. And when she looked into my eyes, I could see a brave 20 months+ old little girl coming to me for care and love. Well, if she could be so brave, why not me? This thought calmed me down instantly. I gave her a hug and sent my love through.
At the park, S was constantly checking if I was there and I knew I am her supporter for this period of time. While I was going through all these adaptation, EnHui seem to be carefree and played along with her. I realised I am emotionally weaker than the kids. (aarrrggg)
Left- Cars, I heard 'race race'. Right- Kids likes boxes.
I began to understand more of what Sonya said..:)

Right- Checked the beautiful sky of dpc in the late evening.
When she left tonight, I kept thinking if she has slept as she was so tired when she left. Later on, a 'phone sms' that read "she slept on the way home ", lifted my concern off.
Guess that is "bonding " and it simply just consists of unconditional love, care and respect the child as an individual.
