It is perfectly acceptable for little boys (and sometimes grown men) to pee ANYWHERE in public. Little children even wear split pants to make it easier. I had seen it but was never personally been involved....until yesterday 😮 We stopped in a shop in the way home from the park. Henry Mingyu said he needed to pee so our guide told me to take him outside. He peed right on the sidewalk in front of the store! 😃 Well....at least it was convenient!
STOP EVERYTHING!!! Today on the way into breakfast....I GOT MY FIRST KISS 😍😍😍
I had just kissed Henry Mingyu on the cheek (I was carrying him) and he turned to me and kissed me back! ❤❤❤
The women don't want to get tan so even in 95 degree weather they cover themselves in winter wear. I can't believe more of them don't faint from over heating!
Henry Mingyu hadn't really cried yet.
He threw a small fit on Wednesday when we wouldn't buy him everything in the grocery store. Yesterday at the park he wanted me to purchase a bubble wand and wasn't happy with a "no".
Today we planned to go swimming. Henry seemed excited. I said we needed to get into our swimsuits and he wasn't happy. We dropped it and played something else for a while. Then Henry Mingyu decided he was ready for the pool. Through Google translate I told him we would go swimming but he needed to take his shirt off (I decided just to let him swim in his shorts). He was not happy. I got my suit on and took his shirt off. The tears came 😪 After a few minutes I put his shirt back on and put my clothes back on. He wasn't happy 😪
After a few more minutes I offered comfort and he accepted....and he fell asleep in his new mama's arms ❤
Henry Mingyu is a brave boy...it breaks my heart that he has to be so brave...I am so blessed to be his mama ❤
Tomorrow we fly to Guangzhou (Prayers for a smooth flight appreciated!! This is my first in country flight and the stories I have heard have me nervous and losing sleep!) to finish Henry Mingyu's paperwork and get him a visa to enter the USA. In one week we fly home!! I can't wait for the rest of the family to meet this sweet boy ❤
