Angel's 1st Floating Balloon

Last week I got Angel her first balloon – a very pretty Minnie Mouse balloons and thought that she would be so happy to see it but oh no …… she was horrified that she cried out loud and tell us she is afraid!! Luckily the next day she is more ok and willing to play with it while chasing the balloon all over the living room (in her PJs still :P). She plays with the balloon but not crazy about it and when out of a sudden the balloon floated in front of her out of no where, she still will come to me and tell me she was afraid. I think she prefers those handheld balloons more then those floating ones. Ahhh …. I love x 10000 floating balloons when I was still a kid (and very shy to say that I still does at this age, kekeke .... ) but I guess that Angel doesn’t fancy it as much as I do. Daddy will be very happy because Angel gets to save him some balloons money in the future. Hhhmmm ….. I thought all kids likes this kind of balloons?

Angel still with her "pa-pa" attitude? Poor girl.. Well, Ashton 'got' (I mean he was given one in one of the weddings we attended) a floating balloon once, and he likes to hit the balloon and catch the balloon roughly till I almost screamed!!! Why? Bcoz this mummy is so scared of balloons!!!!!! Luckily the balloon given to him was a durable one. So I think I won't be getting him any balloons unless I know that those are durable, unbreakable one.

I think Angel prefer other toys.. but I don think that Minnie Mouse balloon is super cute!

Mummy Moon said...

Wonderful Life said...

My Ryan loves balloons, both types. But then he'll play with for a while only as he gets bored of it... :P

Natalia said...

Angel so "pa pa" ar...poor girl..come aunty pao pao...Daniel never play with balloon before. Maybe I should get one for him and will see how he react.

little prince's mummy said...

So cute......
mayb she juz need a lil bit more time to get use to the baloon..

Julie said...

I think she's afraid of the Minnie character with big face. :)

Mummy Gwen said...

Actually she is very smart to express herself by tapping her chest. Gwen never do that just whine and cry. *sigh* Gwen likes all types of balloons but never try giving her this type. Maybe you expose her more, she will get used to it. They just need some reassurance and support.

mumsgather said...

Awwwww... maybe Minnie's eyes a big large here. ;)

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda, yup, she is still “pah-pah’ with most of the things but getting better I think. Hahaha ….. you are afraid of balloons ah? Ya …. I know how scary balloon will be if it burst out of the sudden especially near you but I just don’t think about that when I gave Angel the balloon. No wonder you think balloons are not cute at all, kekekeke ….. but how about those they used to make little puppet given out by the clowns? I think that’s durable and even burst will not have a big bang sound too .. Angel loves it :) Oh ya, and the one I got is not elastic type oh, it’s just like a normal glitter paper and it won’t burst leh, very safe!!! Maybe you could think of this type of you were thinking to get Ashton another balloon in near future :)

Merryn, I am giving her more then moral support leh, basically I am giving her physical and mental support now until I feel like I am actually her ;) Ya … I do hope that she will outgrow this phrase soon :)

Cath, She is actually crying out loud and running away, poor girl …..

Kristie, I thought that she loves it too but guess not :(

Mummy Moon, TRUE!!!! The 2nd day Angel’s balloon is like floating half air and the 3rd day almost no gas already …… but I think most floating type of balloon will not last long la, or do you came across any that will last for more then a week? Then next time I can buy those instead.

Doreen, hahaha …. Kids are like that one, but at least he gets to play with it for awhile la.

Natalia, ya …. If you manage to get one, snap some nice picture of Daniel and how us, maybe I can let Angel see the picture and tell him “See ….. Di Di small baby also not afraid leh …..”

Peiwun, ya … I Think so, thanks :) How about Sean? He loves this type of balloons?

Julie, hahaha … I think she is more afraid of the balloon floating and moving by itselfs.

Mumy Gwen, Yes, I think you are right too Mummy Gwen. So in order to expose her more, should I get her more of this balloons ah?

Mumsgather, you also think it’s the eyes? Hehehehe ….. but I was wondering hor, how come barney looks so ugly and yet she loves it but Minnie mouse looks so cute but she is afraid ……

Esmeralda said...

Yes, I'm TERRIFIED of balloons I can say that.. Haha.. yup maybe can consider those kind of balloons u r talking about... The balloon that can be shaped into different shapes is OK but not those normal ones.. I'm scared by sudden noises... (scary-cat me)... so poor Ashton will have limited access to balloons.. haha... see when I can get the right balloon for him (and for me)..hehehe..

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda, hahaha ..... you are so feminine la which is good coz if you afraid of balloons then hubby can protect you leh, how sweet :)

I will also remembered not to bring balloons to your house if I ever visited you ya :)

Esmeralda said...

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Talking about balloon, I also bought some balloon for Sarah. She likes to play with it and she also not afraid of it. Just today, she has picit the balloon till it burst. Can you imagine, two balloons burst at the same time.

So kesian Angel when she said papa in the photo.

Hehe, not only you like floating balloon, me too... Guess what, since i was a kid till now, I never had any floating balloon before.

I like to blow balloons too...

MommyAngel said...

Joanne, you must be kidding!! Sarah squeezed those balloons until it burst??? She is not afraid at all? Gosh .... I think I will be very afraid leh if the balloon burst in front of me, she is such a brave girl leh. *clap clap*

Oh .... you like balloons too? *high five* Maybe next time when you get one for Sarah, make sure you get one for yourselves too. I really can't resist floating balloons leh, once I saw it I will surely by it. Now that I have a daughter then I can say I buy for her lo ... it's more for me actually, hahahah .... I will feel happy if I saw balloons floating in the air gracefully :) No wonder they always will have balloon all over the place / releasing them during big functions coz it’s just so happy to watch them actually :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Ya leh, coz I have seen her squeezing the balloon and I think the burst of it was caused by this action.
- Erm, that was the first time she burst the balloon. So she looked abit puzzled with what has happened! Hehe.
I also afraid of the loud burst from balloon. The most scary one is, when we are blowing it and out of sudden it burst! Scary!
- Yalor, I will feel happy when seeing floating balloon.

MommyAngel said...

JT, actually I really can't imagine that you like blowing balloons .... hehehe, I hate it!!!

I think Sarah is such a brave girl, coz even she looks puzzled but she didn't cry. Angel will cried even if she heard the smallest sound which she doesn't know.

Joanne ~ said...

Angel look so scare in the pic, may be she not friend with it yet so feel 'pak pak'... But i like the ballon so much, so cute !

MommyAngel said...

Joanne, ya ... I like the balloon so much to until I can't wait to show her :) But guess that she don't know how to "yan siong" yet :)
