Happy Mother’s Day

Huh? It’s Mother’s Day ah? Why didn’t you tell me yee yee? Then I would sleep in a bit more so mummy can get more sleep.

Nvm, my jeje didn’t get the cue either and fell ill on Mother’s Day. She was a clingy, sobbing, booger dripping mess, but mummy loves her all the same.

Artwork from Saitaoha for Mother’s Day. Tristan also made me a pretty flower, but I couldn’t take a picture because Saitaoha processed to pick out all the pretty stickers 😓.

The day started pretty badly since we had to deal with a sick kid the night before. Luckily Saitaomei was not too bad and R took her from me in the morning to give me an extra lie in. But I felt sorry for him and got up to make breakfast for him and Saitaoha.

Then things started looking up when we headed out and met up with my sisters’ family. We went Mother’s Day gift shopping! It was really nice seeing my BIL spoiling my sister, it’s so nice to see her appreciated and showered with love by her family.

Afterwards we stopped for a coffee and a blueberry muffin. I was so pleased to have a nice coffee on Mother’s Day 😄.

A reluctant papa parts with his money on Mother’s Day. No lah he actually offered to buy me my mobile that I’ve been wanting to buy (but kept putting off coz too kiam) for months. Normally I would umm and ahh and reject his offer but heck, I just went with it this time!

Because I really want one!! I need good photos of the kids and lots of memory. I’m so happy I don’t have to keep deleting old photos now. 😍😍😍😍😍

I asked R ‘are you sure you’re ok with spending so much money on a phone?’ He surprised me by saying ‘yes, I think a good phone is worth the money and iPhone is worth its value’ after a pause, he said ‘a good mummy is worth it too’.

I’m already so lucky to be a mother to my munchkins but ok lah, it’s really nice to be spoilt on Mother’s Day.


I’ve always appreciated having Mother’s Day to let my Ah Ma know that we cherish and love her. But now that I’m a mummy, I know that I should have showed my appreciation a lot more! Ah Ma is my kids’ second mother, and if I’m completely honest, she’s a much better, patient and skilful mummy than I am. It goes to show how great she is with my kids that Saitaoha cries for her when she is sick.

I’ve been such a whiner since Saitaomei’s arrival, complaining about how life is tough with two bubs. Yet my parents are helping me raise my kids without a single complaint and a whole lot of love.

When I fractured my foot, Ah Ma helped me with the baby even though she sprained her back so badly that she pretty much crawled to the toilet 😓.

I think Ah Ma single handedly pulled me out of my baby blues during our Singapore/Kuching trip and I’ve never looked back since.

I am not a very good mummy and still have lots to learn from my Ah Ma. But I’m thankful that I have my girls and love being their mummy, they are hard work but gosh I love them to pieces 😍. I only hope someday I can be half as good a mummy as my Ah Ma is. So Ah Ma if you’re reading this, thank you for the sleepless nights, the curries, beehoons and green bean soups, the Sunny Hill pandan ice cream hunts, the neverending searches of missing jujus and xiuxius. Thank you for all the love, generosity and care that you shower on me, R, Saitaoha and Saitaomei. Happy Mother’s Day to the best Ah Ma and Mah Mahever.

    Thanks to you and your siblings for being such awesome and wonderful children to your parents .It’s good that R and HC can show their appreciation and love on this meaningful day. Both you and @tspellstrouble are worth so much more than a laptop or iPhone to your family and your kids.
