The Preemie Family


him: a civil servant
her: an ex preemie, born at 26 weeks in 2008, with Erb’s Palsy, Cerebral Palsy, Hypertonia and Global Developmental Delay (GDD)
her: a second princess in the family, born in 20.12.2012
me: an early childhood educator since 1999

What is this blog about, you ask? As what the title says, being a parent to a little preemie, it is really all about that. I started the blog because my girl inspired me right after she was born, though i took six months after that to create this blog.

I love to make new friends especially if they have a preemie (or not, doesn’t matter) or kids with special needs. I have always been very open about my girl’s condition and i am proud of having her.

Not many Singaporeans with special needs children are willing to share their experiences so i want to seek friends globally. If you do have a preemie, child with multiple disabilities or special needs, come be my friend.

Let’s talk. I do not bite. I only bite my daughter’s cute bottom! :p

    I love that your husband is willing to sport the pink diaper bag, now that’s a good man.. :o) Thanks for the posts! Our Meggers actually came 2 weeks late and her seizures started at a month of age, she’s almost six now and the seizures are pretty well controlled on medication.

    Take Care

    ohh i hope Meggers will improve and be at the pinkest of her health. and as for my husband, as long as he doesn’t have to wear pink tops, he’d be fine. hehe. he hates pink actually, like any other men.
