Fear...

I used to say that Jayden is not afraid of anything, including me. Well, maybe sometimes when I hold my cane/rotan up or when I whack the wall to make the ZUUUUPPP sound to scare him. So Amy, that answered your tag of "Spare the rod?". I'm already using it. How to spare? *LOL*

Anyway, that day I brought my lil J to the park. It just rained so the park was empty. I was holding my camera and I brought him alone. Luckily I have a door mat in my car (don't ask me why, I don't know too..) So I wiped the slide for him.

Off he went. And he was so happy going up and down the slide. And then he saw this...

And he gave me the cheeky grin...

Oh no. I shouted "Jayden, No!" And still he tried to go up. I couldn't reach him in time and he already reached the top of the slide. He got in so I waited for him to come down. And he didn't. Then I heard the sound "Piak Piak Piak". He reversed and came down from the top.

Then he ran down and hugged me. I asked him "what happened?" (eh, as if he knows how to answer me eh?) and he gave me this blank look..

Ok, definitely something is wrong. Maybe he was afraid of the slide cos it was dark. (nearly 7.30pm). So we headed home. And he cried like mad in the car!

So, last night we brought him to the playground where he got a flying kick the other day. And I thought that this time he won't go up the slide anymore. But nope. He totally forgotten about the scarry slide and he went to the lowest slide. Then slowly upgraded to the higher one. Then the zigzag one and finally the giant looking one, nearly the same as the one in the park. Of course I guided him up the stairs but he zupped down by himself. And he went on and on and on until both big C and I punya back sudah senget.

Using my Olympus FE190. That's why its not so clear.

In fact, when I was up there guiding him into the tunnel slide (the yellow one), I was afraid too. I don't know why. But it gave me the chilly feeling. Probably that's why he was afraid of the slide in the park.

I know, the video is very dark.....

This time he happily obliged when we say "let's go home". Phew!!!! Maybe he was too tired or he played till he was bored already. But he didn't konk-out in the car or when we're at home till about 12am!!! I know one thing for sure, I'm more tired than him!!! I couldn't get up this morning!

Okay Have a good weekend everyone. It's gonna be a very busy weekend for us. Too many warehouse sale going on. (click here for the full list. Remember to bring Cash. Otherwise you gotto wait very long at the Credit Card Q!) *Big C biting nails edi now, i know* plus we have to attend my ex-colik's wedding too. More opps to snap pics :D
