The Seeblings call me Mama, and I am the main person behind this blog (obviously). I was a Phys. Ed. teacher at a renown high school in Singapore and I left teaching to pursue writing. I wrote for CLEO (a fashion/ lifestyle magazine in Singapore) and then subsequently freelanced for Mother & Baby Magazine (a parenting magazine).

So I kinda went missing on social media over the NYE/ New Year’s Day celebrations. If we are friends on FB, you’ll know that See2 got admitted to the hospital at 2am on NYE. He suffered a febrile seizure due to a spike in his fever and because of his age, we were told to stay on for observations.

Yesterday we experienced the longest minute and the biggest shock of our lives. For one whole minute, See1 lost control of his body. His back was arched backwards, limbs were stiffened and eyes rolled upwards. He was convulsing. During that minute he was also choking and nothing we did would bring him back to his consciousness.
Here’s offering another perspective since you have already preempted the “ruckus” that would “erupt” on a “childless person like (you)”. From the comments you’ve been receiving, you probably understood a little more about a child’s behaviour:
– They may never last as long as their parents on a shopping trip and need to rest/ nap in the stroller.
In May 2010, 2 weeks before our June 5 wedding, I was woken up by an intense pain in my tummy. Assuming it was a bad case of stomachache, I tried relieving myself in the toilet. However, nothing happened. I tried sleeping it off as it was not time to get ready for work. I struggled.
