When Jie Jie is not at home

Saturday, Princess April went to an extra Ucmas Arithmetic lesson. Princess May was home with me. Whenever her jie jie wasn't around, little May would be the nicest kid in the world. Pardon me for over exaggerate the situation a bit.
She would extremely quiet. She would do her own stuff. She would never come and bother me. She enjoyed her own sweet time by reading books. She would pick her jie jie's books to read when her jie jie wasn't around. No one would scream at her for touching jie jie's belongings.
And myself, I got some ME time too, when little May was fully focused in her own world. I have to tell ya! The atmosphere and scene weren't as peaceful as in here when her jie jie was back. When two kids were ganged up together, I have to scream when talk. So, having more than one child is totally different from having single child.

  3. Sigh, Yan i wish back then i had a little bit more money, so that i can have at least 4 children lah... now mid 40s,wanted to have more,always think 10 times.

    wish i could turn the hand of time lah. You know time really flies and each and everyday we must really learn how to be a better person, wife/husband, father/mother, son/daughter.. cos if we treat others better, we are treating ourselves better.

    so go have two more ya

  5. Agreed Yan! Having 2 is different from 1. 2 kids tend to have more ideas to mess up the house and to make our blood boiled.

    Good that you managed to have your 'ME' time.... :D May is a good girl.

  6. May is such a good girl. Luckily, my girl is not the demanding type..she is ok doing her own things. Maybe you are right about having the 2 kids and single child theory. :)

  7. May is very good girl doing her own stuff so you can watch one or two episodes of your favorite drama series?... Yes 2 brains are always better than 1 :-)

  8. Agree with you. A single child is always an angel in his/her parents' eye regardless what he/she does. But when there are more, parents will get headache. Hahaha! Btw, your May is considered a well-behaved child.

    May is such a good girl. She can keep herself occupied quietly without disturbing you. How nice!
