Sleepless in Perth

Do not be fooled by this innocent looking chubby cheeks. Ms Mak Kim Kim was mak kim kim again last night and so unsettled. I suspect it’s because she’s teething and still quite congested so very uncomfortable. Anyhow I felt like I hardly slept a wink last night and gave up trying to make her sleep at 7am.

You comprain about me again ah mummy? But I shoooo cute.

The day care drop off was every bit as horrible as I imagined it would be. I had two wailing kids in the car on the drive there, traffic was busy and poor Saitaoha was in tears throughout. She didn’t understand why I couldn’t carry her (was carrying Saitaomei) and kept crying ‘mummy 抱抱’.

Luckily things turned for the better when I got home. Saitaomei slept and I could do the laundry, bake a quiche, water plants.

Harvesting chillies from ah pa’s chilly plants. It’s only been a few days but I miss my parents 😭. Their house feels so quiet and lonely.

My sister picked up Saitaoha from daycare for me ♥️. I knew Saitaoha would love being with Tristan because she cried when she mistook another boy at daycare for her koko and was so disappointed when she realised it wasn’t him. In hindsight I should have picked her up myself, I will do better next week 🙏🏻.

Happy giggling koala. Sigh, she seems very unsettled tonight, I think it’s going to be another sleepless night….
