一个老外爸爸的育儿经 Introductions

博客简介

分类: 有中文翻译

我们一家

Daddy是个大鼻子新西兰老外。从2005年起,他把中国看做是自己的家。来中国以前他在奥克兰大学做了十年学生。在中国当了三年英语教师之后,他决定重拾学生生涯。现在他在中国一所大学攻读博士学位。

妈妈是一个中国美人(爸爸是这样想的)。她在爸爸读博士的那所大学当副教授。妈妈将为爸爸这个双语博客当翻译。

妈妈和Daddy在当全职教师和学生的同时,一起分担家务,带木兰。 

木兰是一只小金猪(2007年出生)。她跟Daddy讲英语,跟妈妈讲普通话。 

毛美琪认为这个家是她做主的。她还是小小猫的时候从街上被捡回来,现在她是一只又肥又任性的大猫了。她在家里闲庭漫步,蟑螂们闻风丧胆。 

宝宝2常常被我们议论,却还不知道在哪里呢!希望有一天他能加入到这个家里来。 

 

关于这个博客

很多男人忙于养家糊口,没有机会成为名副其实的爸爸。所以,我觉得自己很幸运,有时间跟木兰在一起,做一个真正的Daddy。我珍惜我和她在一起的时间。 

有些照顾孩子的大人不得不整天跟孩子在一起。所以,我觉得自己很幸运,有时间作为一个真正的成年人。我需要自己的空间,做自己的事情。不过,在学习几小时后,我就开始想木兰了,开始准备好重新做Daddy了。 

我想用这个博客把作为Daddy的我和作为成人的我连接起来。我不会在这个博客里向大家报告我们的日常生活细节。木兰的隐私应该受到我们的尊重(尤其是在中国,作为一个混血宝宝,她已经常常被“展览”了。)我也不会在这里充当专家,告诉大家该怎么养育孩子。在这里,我想走中间路线。 

在我们这个混合文化的家庭里,我们不断发现彼此的文化,创造我们自己的交融的家庭文化。如何帮助木兰成为她将要成为的她?没有现成的答案,而这个博客将记录我们对此的讨论和不断完善的想法。


最新更新(2010年1月21日)我们的家庭有两个变化。第一,宝贝2号已经来了,请看这里。第二,正如我说的,我们家变成了一个传统家庭,妈妈挣钱,我当奶爸。


Meet the Family:

Daddy is a hairy whitey with a big nose.  Born and raised in New Zealand, Daddy has been calling China “home” since 2005.  Before moving to China, he spent 10 years studying at the University of Auckland.  Three years teaching English in China convinced him to return to academic life, and he is now working on a PhD from a Chinese university. 

Mama is a Chinese beauty.  She is a full-time academic, employed as an Associate Professor at the same university in which Daddy is studying. She is also the translator for this blog.

Daddy and Mama share the family duties equally.  Both spend half their time working full-time, and half their time taking care of Mulan. 

Mulan is a Golden Pig (born in 2007).  She speaks English with Daddy and Mandarin with Mama. 

Maggie Mao thinks she is the real boss.  She was rescued off the street as a young kitten, and she has now grown into a fat, spoilt cat.  She wanders the apartment at will.  The cockroaches don’t stand a chance. 

Baby Number Two is the much talked about, but as yet non-existent, hopeful future member of the family.

 

About this Blog:

Many men don’t get the chance to become Daddy; they are too busy earning money to pay the bills.  I feel I am very lucky to have been given the time to become Daddy.  I love my time with Mulan.

Some caregivers have to look after their children all day, every day.  I feel I am very lucky to be given the time to be Adult.  I need my own time, for my own achievements.  But after a few hours of doing my own work, I am missing Mulan, and am ready to be Daddy again. 

This blog is a link between me as Daddy and me as Adult.  This is not a tell-all blog detailing our daily life.  Mulan deserves our respect, to keep her private life private (especially here in China, where she is constantly on display as the Mixed Baby).  But neither is this an expert blog, telling people how to raise their children.  In this blog, I aim to walk a middle path. 

We are a mixed-culture family, discovering each other’s culture and creating our own, mixed, family culture.  We don’t have all the answers; this blog is a record of our discussions and evolving thoughts on how to help Mulan become the person she is going to be.


Update (21/1/2010): We have had two family changes.  Baby Number Two now exists -- see here And, as I said here, we have now changed to a "traditional" family, with Mama earning the money and me housebanding.
