Part 2: Aiman's Potty Training

Aiman is very very very comfortable using his disposable diapers. We could not change that comfortable feeling ( I always give way to his persuading look; very sad eyes, a sad smile). He can go without diaper at home but not at his grandma's house. He love using the kids potty in our toilet but hate to use the normal toilet (toilet cangkung ) at his grandma's. He gave a lot of reasons to wear diapers in his nursery ( and yeah he can create a lot of reasons). But I still do not have 100% confidence for him to go out jalan-jalan without diapers. Maybe time will tell. :) Hopefully it is soon.

Lessons of the Geese

In the fall when you see Geese heading south for the winter flying along in the "V" formation, you might be interested in knowing what science has discovered about why they fly that way. It has been learned that as each bird flaps its wings, it creates uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in a "V" formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own. Quite similar to people who are part of a team and share a common direction get where they are going quicker and easier, because they are traveling on the trust of one another and lift each other up along the way. Whenever a Goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go through it alone and quickly gets back into formationto take advantage of the power of the flock. If we have as much sense as a Goose, we will stay in formation and share information with those who are headed in the same way that we are going. When
