A day with no pictures

Doesn’t it feel nice that Saturday is almost over and you realise, hey there’s still Sunday ahead?

We’ve been juggling two kids because ah Ma is still nursing a bad back. It hasn’t been too bad because at least R is home to help out. But I must say that bringing two kids out is not easy, probably made worse when you have crappy feet that just won’t heal completely. At one point Saitaoha was barefooted (long story of falling shoes) and sitting on the shop’s floor, Saitaomei was in my arms and wailing, R had his hands full carrying our new curtain rod and curtains, I wanted to give up and pack everyone home.

But ah Ma and I still managed to have quite a few laughs about our invalid state ‘suay lang don’t make me laugh my back hurts’ she complains, ‘you don’t make me laugh, my feet hurt’ I retort. We both end up laughing helplessly.

My sisters, brothers in law and the kids were around this evening. Lots of excited yelling, lots of laughter. When my brother and sister in law flies to Perth in a couple of weeks, we will be whole again. Can’t wait.

Aiji night

It was a pretty good day yesterday. I meant to blog about it when the kids went to sleep but Saitaomei refused to sleep until past midnight! She must be missing Mah Mah’s sleepy fairy dust.

The sun had come up by the time she slept. Sigh my sleeping angel.

Meanwhile this one is still very cheeky and demanding. We discovered a way of getting her to stay in the stroller, just put meimei in and Saitaoha will immediately want to sit in the stroller! If we don’t let her, waterworks will start and she will point at Saitaomei in the stroller and cry ‘baby …baby…😭’

Monitoring papa giving her favourite rabbit (she calls it Xiu Xiu, morphed from 兔兔) a bath. Xiu Xiu is her security blanket and to our dismay she has shunned all other rabbits and will only sleep with this one. She also drags Xiu Xiu out everywhere so it desperately needs a wash. Usually this brings out waterworks but I devised a method of telling her XiuXiu needs to pom pom and papa had to drag out the bath tub so she could see the pom pom in action.

Giving directions to papa. Super funny. There was a bit of whining when we hung Xiu Xiu out to dry but it was minimal.

Back in the kitchen means R gets his favourite noodles for lunch. He told me that he cooked for himself when I was away. ‘Oh good! Do you want to continue to do that ?’ I asked. Total silence. 😂😂😂


R comes out from the shower.

👩🏻: Hey! Do you feel like eating icecream?

👦🏻: Ya ok.

Saitaoha: Aiji 💕💕💕!!

👩🏻: Oh great! Can you walk over to my parents’ to get the icecream?

👦🏻: 😏

So that’s how we walked the 50 steps over to my parents’ house, four of us in our pjs, to get chocolate icecream for supper.

Saitaoha was delighted with our night excursion and also the promise of aiji. She greeted her Mah Mah at the door ‘Hi Mah Mah! Aiji!!’ We took the box of icecream and strolled home under the starry skies.
