Of a rojak post

My #jailbreak me-time for the week was cut short because I got a message from my SIL informing me that she's coming to see the baby with my FIL. πŸ˜‚

Immediately rushed to get my screen protector fixed, went to NTUC to buy pumpkin* and onions** and picked up lunch from mr bean on the way back.

*pumpkin, because the little boss was sitting at the dinner table one evening looking at the dishes.

She sighed and made a comment, "So long never cook pumpkin?"


But helper hasn't been able to get pumpkin from our neighbourhood NTUC for the past 2 weeks.

**onions, because said NTUC stopped carrying the ones that could be used to make shallots.

Lol why am I even explaining my grocery purchase.

And yes we still call it NTUC.

Even our helper who has worked in Singapore for some 12-14 years already?

It's really the little things you can't lie about.

The other day she gasped in amazement when she saw the 730pm show's trailer that featured 向云 and ι™ˆδΉ‹θ΄’ in the same drama.

She knows they are a married couple? Lol.

Sleep, interrupted. πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚

They were already here when I got home.

She was napping before they came and woke up after sleeping for just 30 minutes.

She was sleepy but still all smiles when I talked to her, but suddenly burst out crying when her Ah-gong carried her. πŸ˜‚πŸ™Š

And then she refused to look at him.

Here she's looking like "Save me Mummy!" πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Kicked up a fuss when it was time to drink milk and didn't finish it because she was over-tired.

Now having disturbed nap stirring and crying with her eyes closed. πŸ˜•

Hope she gets some rest, otherwise she'd be having a hard time sleeping later and waking up every 30 minutes from 8pm to 12am. 😣🀐

She sleeps better at night when her naps are longer.

I'm feeling quite ok about it, because it's nice of them to come all the way to see the baby.

It's hard to explain the importance of nap time to our parents. They'd just think, aiyah if day time no sleep then night time can sleep longer. πŸ˜…

Anyway my FIL knew she needed to sleep and left so she could go back to sleep. 😊

Shall just deal with the possibly rough evening later on. πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

And my period came this morning. πŸ˜•

Not a surprise, because I've been having the PMS kind of stomachaches for the past 2 weeks.

I almost wanted to go see a doctor and check if I had IBS.

Had to call and postpone my post-partum checkup with Dr Tham this coming Friday.

Oh well.

And post-partum hairfall has also begun. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­

So there's hair everywhere now.

Clarissa would pick up the hair strands and put them back onto my head, thinking they'd just grow back. πŸ˜‚


I closed my eyes for 10 minutes.. and then the baby cried. πŸ˜‚

Boo looks like she's really over-tired and can't nap properly.

No nap for me too.

I was up at 4am this morning, because Clarissa woke up and came into the room. I took her to our room and made her sleep before going back to check on Meimei. And then Meimei stirred so I gave her milk. She took a while and a bit of rocking to go back to sleep.

Pumped and waited in bed for the time to wake the hubs and bubs1 up.

I said, "Hey Clarissa, wake up."

She said, "No."

And continued sleeping.


Aye my post today is all over the place.

Checked back the CCTV on the 4am wake-up.

Clarissa had already rolled off her bed and was sleeping on the mattress. She stirred, woke up, stood up, grabbed mama duck, opened her room door and walked out. πŸ˜‚

She hasn't woken up this early for some time? Hope it's just one-off.

Enjoying the "θΆ…ε₯½εƒ" cake Ah-gong bought for her.

I told her that Ah-gong and Xiao Gu-gu came earlier.

She asked, "Why they come when I'm not at home? Why cannot come when I'm back?"


She somehow decided that Meimei is feeling cold?

And Meimei just basked in the attention?


Jiejie: I put your handkerchief here ok? If you vomit you let me know! I wipe for you!

Meimei was like, why is my bouncer so crowded? πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Jiejie kept adding things onto the bouncer including Papa duck and a rattler, to keep her company lol.

Just to add to my already rojak post today, and in case anyone's interested.

Tonight the little boss was the "Big Bad Wolf" and her Meimei was "Small Bad Wolf". πŸ˜‚

All because I was feeding her dinner (She said her hands were very tired today πŸ™„) and she asked me if the food was hot.

I said, why don't you just blow on it before you eat?

She did, but she blew so hard the vegetable flew off the spoon. She was so tickled by it.

"I huff and puff the vegetable! I'm the Big BAD Wolf!" She declared.

Oh well.
