Melon song

It wasn’t much of a weekend because we pretty much stayed home most of the time. Everytime we planned to go out, one kid would nap, when she woke up, it was the other kid’s turn to nap. I scoff at my naive self that thought we could go to IKEA during the weekend. We hardly made it to the shops!

Saitaoha who seemed to have gotten over her terrible two tantrum phase after our Melbourne trip started acting up again. I think it’s because her mei mei is here 24/7 vying for our attention, the green eyed monster in her just can’t take it.

I left her sobbing in the room whilst R and I tried to ignore her wails and wait for her to calm down. She’s normally really friendly and greets us cheerily. So it was heartbreaking when I went in to check on her and she wobbled out ‘Hi mummy!’ amidst her sobs. Oh baby 😭.

Most of the time I’m preoccupied with Saitaomei because I handle her better than R. Saitaoha is so resilient that she’s started asking R for things instead of me, I used to be her go to person. I don’t mind that at all, I think R is enjoying the attention from his first love.

This little one is a peach. Love kissing her cheeks.

Saitaoha playing bunnies with papa. They had lots of playtime this weekend. Now that gung gung and Mah Mah aren’t here, papa has had to step up.

Saitaoha was delighted with this new Wiggles car. Luckily she was ok with sharing with Saitaomei.

We had fun singing to our watermelon and rock melon patch. This big one is Daddy melon, so the song goes ‘Daddy melon, daddy melon, where are you? Here I am, here I am, how do you do?’

There are so many watermelons of different sizes, so we had mummy melon, brother melon, sister melon and baby melon. She enjoyed singing this song so much she didn’t want to leave the garden. Then she said goodbye to the melons, I think we will be visiting them daily.

Duplo cake anyone? She’s been ‘baking’ all night and offering us cake, she actually puts her cake into my real oven too! I hope I remember to check for leftover duplo every time I bake in the future 😅.

It will be just me and the kids during the day starting tomorrow. I hope it turns out ok 👌.
