Then it's the Chinese New Year holiday back at our kampung. Though the schedule was not too hectic, but somehow it's very different from the normal routine. Especially that they can see us 24 hours a day, and have many big and small friends to play with.
When we came back to Singapore, my brother's girl friend, YW and her mum came to visit Singapore and stayed with us. The kids were happy to have few more people to play around.
Then YW's mum left. The kids have got so close with their JiuJiu and YW YiYi by then. They both continued to stay with us till today. They went back to the West Malaysia. It's such a wonderful time for the kids to spend with their JiuJiu and YiYi. Especially Hao Re. Everything was about JiuJiu. Woke up in the morning he would go to JiuJiu's room and disturbed him. He would follow him everywhere even without us tagging along. He even bathed together with JiuJiu! And everyday when I ask him who he loves most, he must include JiuJiu and YiYi, sometimes even putting JiuJiu at the first place! It's just amazing how well the two clicks :-)
So now, they have left. Life is back to the normal. Just me and the kids at home till hub comes back later at night. I have no more excuse to laze around. Have to get things prepared the night before and then cook dinner for Hao Re every weekday night. Have to play and entertain them till their bedtime.
One of the major "improvement" during the past month was that TV time has been cut down a lot! Since they are a few people they can play with in the house, they choose to play and not to watch TV. I am very glad about this. Even yesterday, we only watched TV for half an hour.
Also on the same day, 28th February 2011, I made a promise to myself to go Facebook-less and iPhone-less throughout the night till the kids are asleep. I realised I have been spending too much time on iPhone, and it's a bit unnecessarily, to be honest. So I want to cut this bad "habit". I hope by ditching the phone, I can focus better and more on them, and play with them with full attention.
Life's good :-)
