Hahaha my sister made a collage of her looking longingly at the cake I was cutting.
Love their wefie.
Oh Clarissa helped with putting on the candles.. one of them she pressed all the way to (nearly) the bottom of the cake and three of them side by side right next to one another.
It's a 6am start for me today.
Yesterday the little one took an early nap, woke up at around 230pm and partied all the way till 10pm.
I thought she'd sleep in this morning.
But guess who came into our room at 6am and went, "Mummy, let's go!"? 😂
Macham all ready to start the day.
She'd already drunk her milk but didn't want to go back to sleep.
So I went to her room with her and made her lie down on the mattress with me.
She eventually went back to sleep at nearly 7am.
It's now 8am and both the hubs and bubs are still sleeping.
I feel like 😩😣😩 but I can't go back to sleep. 🙁😭🙁
Hahahahaha she burst into our room at 820am, announcing loudly:
Mummy, I finished my milk!
Erm I know?
That was about two hours ago. 😅
Our conversation over breakfast today was to learn greetings in different languages lol.
I tried to get her to say 早安，你好，ohaiyo-gozaimasu, anneyohaseiyo but she was just especially tickled by the greetings in Japanese and Korean, and deliberately said something similar but different.
I also tried to teach her to say 我爱你， aishiteiru, saranghaeyo.. hahaha but she just made up her own language.
So this "Aishinemasu" or "I have a mask" or whatever it is, is probably a combination of Aishiteru and Ohaiyo-gozaimasu. 😅😁
Just when I thought she wasn't paying attention to me, she ran to her Daddy after she was done eating and said to him, loud and clear, "Saranghaeyo!", placing both her hands on top of her head.
I only taught her to say saranghaeyo but didn't show her the hand sign. Hahaha but this is something she knows how to do since young so I guess she's just putting it all together.
Aiyo she makes my heart feel so full so early in the morning. 😁😁
For some strange reason, the little one refused to take her nap after we got back from her swimming lesson.
She had a great time in the pool today, going down the slides, showing and telling her coach, "I'm kicking!"
I saw her kicking on her own and swimming towards Daddy. 😁
She was so good during shower and changing too.
"Clarissa shower fast! Clarissa didn't cry!" She said to me when I thanked her for making it fast even though she really loves showering on her own.
Usually it'd be milk followed by nap after we get home but today she did not fall asleep after finishing her milk.
She walked into our room and said she wanted to sleep on our bed.
So we said ok.
But instead of sleeping, she was sitting up and playing with her duck. Making her duck slide down the "pool" and giving her instructions on how to swim towards Clarissa. 😂
I told her very sternly that she really should sleep but she ignored me.
And then she got off the bed and said she wanted to play.
So I said I'd not be playing with her, and in fact no one would (Daddy was already taking his nap and Yaya was busy) and I left her in the living room, closing the door to my room as I walked away.
Less than a minute later, she opened the door and said to me in a small voice, "Mummy, I want to sleep."
I said to her, "Ok. Where do you want to sleep?"
On the bed, beside you.
My heart softened. 😅
"Mummy is angry," She said as she pulled herself up the bed.
I helped her up and smiled.
"Mummy and Daddy is happy," She smiled timidly and lay down on the bed, her eyes shut but lids fluttering.
She was trying hard to sleep.
I reached out and held her hand.
She eventually dozed off (and I'm Dayre-ing instead of working because it's too late to start 😅).
But aye, was I too harsh with her? 🙁
No nap no work so I went for a jog while the hubs and bubs took their naps.
Hehe I woke the hubs up and asked him to sleep beside the bubs who was sleeping on our bed.
530pm is usually still too sunny for running but better to run while the boss is asleep. 😅
Got home just in time to catch the bubs and hubs who got up from their naps five minutes ago.
And we all had dinner together!
Finally heard her speak Mandarin on her own while we were trying to eat + get her to eat.
Guess what she said?
Erm still a good start I guess?
So the boss asked me to be Piggy while she held on to Mama duck.
🐷: Hello my name is Piggy. What's your name?
👶: I'm Clarissa.
🐷: (Touching Mama duck) And what's your name?
👶: (Hugs Mama duck close) Mama duck is sleeping!
🐷: Oh, but I want to play with her!
👶: Mama duck cannot play with you!
🐷: (Starts to cry) But.. but I really want to play with her. (Sobs)
👶: Don't cry Piggy! Mama duck will play with you.
🐥: (Wakes up) Hi Piggy, let's play!
