Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) and Grace Chan (陳凱琳) have their hands full parenting their two sons, 2-year-old Rafael and 11-month-old Yannick. With Rafael entering his terrible twos and his rebellious personality emerging, Grace would sometimes feel exasperated and Kevin would have to take on the role of the strict dad.
“Rafael refused to wear a mask when we were going out one day. So we didn’t go out, and then he immediately put it on. He knows how to read the room,” Grace revealed.
She continued to share that Kevin actually plays the bad cop at home. “When we were getting out of the car in the parking lot, Rafael wanted to run around. His dad immediately yelled at him, making him the bad guy. When he is yelling, I would just stand quietly next to him, but sometimes I would join in. We just want to be consistent.”
With Rafael already in nursery school, it is time for Grace to start thinking about locating a suitable school when he starts kindergarten. Reflecting on her own experiences while growing up in Canada, Grace feels that the Chinese language in not her strength. She hopes Rafael can enter a local school so that his Chinese skills are stronger, and eventually learn to take the school bus so he can be more independent.
With two boys at home, does Grace wish to chase after a daughter? She believes that two sons are perfect for now, especially with Rafael heading into his rebellious stage, and does not want to think about having another child right now.
Celebrating Father’s Day on Sunday, the family took a staycation. To make it more fun for their sons, Grace set up a tent inside their room so the boys can have an indoor camping experience. Rafael also learned a new song at nursery school and sang it to Kevin.
When asked if Grace prepared any gifts, she said, “I prepared a gift for my own dad. I wanted to buy a wallet for him last time we went shopping, but he said it was too expensive. When I went home, my mom told me that he really liked the wallet so I caught the hint and got it for him anyway. He doesn’t want his kids to spend money on them, but he also enjoys [the gift].”
