Good and bad on my Mother's Day

There were something good and also something bad happened on my Mother's Day (actually we celebrated on Saturday). 

It has been a long time I didn't receive any flowers from my loved one. My husband is a very practical man. He will not give flowers on my birthday, Valentine's day and also our wedding anniversary, though I can feel his love and care to me everyday.

Saturday noon(Mother's Day eve), I suggested my two girls to use their pocket money and got a little sponsor from their papa to buy me a Carnation. They finally did, and I got my 2 long awaited fresh Carnations.
Picture was taken on the way back from the Mother's Day celebration lunch with my MIL. Till then, my mood was still good.

Saturday evening, we went to the mall and my husband wanted to give me a special Mother's Day treat. We decided on Kenny Rogers. At the mall, we bumped into April's ex-classmate. She was quite close to April at Primary 1. She has changed to a different school this year. Means, they didn't meet each other for almost half a year. I wanted her to go and say hello to her friend and her parents. She didn't want.  When I said good bye to her friend's parents, and I asked her to say good bye to them, she also didn't want. I was quite annoyed at her bad manners. I gave her a good scolding at the dinner.

Saturday night, April and May requested to watch a movie at 10.30 pm. I declined by giving them the reason of watching a movie at 10.30pm was too late. April reluctantly went back to the room and angrily slammed the door. Guess what? I grabbed my magic wand and walked into the room. Give her a spank on her legs, and she cried. Needless to say, my good mood was spoilt. 

I didn't expect that my Mother's day celebration would be ended with a spank on my darling.

  1. My Alycia does that too sometimes. At times when I forbid her to do something, she will also lock herself in her room, slam the door and sulk inside. I will open the door and scream at her to wake her up and bring her back to her senses.

  3. My girl is like that too. Whenever we see any of her friends out of school she would refuse to say Hello. I guess they're just shy. Same here, my girl would go into the room and close the door. I guess it is to put some distance between them and the then bad mummy. Haha.

  13. I also cannot understand why kids behave this way. My Chloe is exactly the same! She just won't smile or open her mouth to greet someone that she knows, esp when we meet coincidentally like that. Sometimes I even apologize to the person because I feel so embarrassed by her action. Sigh...

  14. Hey, please don't punish the children just because they don't say hi and bye and greet others,to me that's not nice.... I mean that does not mean that they are rude or ill mannered,may be they say don't want to do it for some reasons at that particular moments and timing..

    Never mind dear, there will be many many happy mother day celebration in years to come,ya

  15. U r not alone. Both my kids are the same. Never say hi and bye to their friends outside school compound. Next time don't cane April, ok. Have a talk with her. Tell her slamming the door is very rude. April is a sensible girl. She will understand.

  16. My girl is quite 'good in greeting' others when she was younger. But as she grows up, she is less courteous now. I, too, will lecture on her ill mannered.

    Now my son starts behaving like the sister *faint* Another one to handle~

  17. me the same, my kids kena my "rotan" when they not behave well, but i always feel regret after did this action, hahaha...but now they have grown up older a bit, no more rotan from me ^_^..

    ReplyDelete
  18. rotan is painful but it helps her to learn from mistake :) and kids forget things fast

  20. Gwen is like that too sometimes. I think they are just shy especially impromptu meeting of this sort. I try to not rotan her but sometimes we just can't keep our cool....not easy to discipline our kids. We are only human.

  21. I wanted to say, I like your eye makeup very much. The flowers are beautiful. I always "hint hint" to my hubby if I want something..no point waiting for surprises..haha.

  22. ya, you're so cute asking your daughters to buy you flowers! i know how bad and could be embarassed too for you to feel that when you said that your daughter refused to greet the friends. Your daughter has always been nice and obedient from what i always read, i think sometimes they just hv their moods and swings. Dont feel bad. Btw, you look so pretty in the photo, like a bride!

  23. LOL....cute. Anyway, kids will be kids.

  24. Have you ask her why she act the way she did? There must be a reason.

  25. Cool down, Yan. At least you got a carnation from them. Parenting is not easy. Btw, you look great in the photo!

  26. Sorry to hear about the incidents. Perhaps April was too shy to go say hi to her friend? Kids are like that sometimes. So maybe after your scolding, she was in a bad mood hence slamming the door when you turned down her request? I know that our kids should not behave that way. I guess they have mood swings too..like us adult :P On the bright side, you did have a good celebration at the beginning of your Saturday :)

  27. Managing children is so so so challenging nowadays. Do cheer up my friend. Sometimes, the magic want is necessary to ensure that they grow up with better discipline ......

  28. Poor Yan, I'm sure everything is over now. Me too! Will never expect my man to gift me flowers but.....he'll find me the live wild flowers for planting. haha.... Better than nothing huh! However, hope you're going to have a great day cause it's sugar high Friday.lol.

  29. Don't feel bad about punishing her even though she gave you something for Mother's Day. Life's like that...lessons from Mum never stops no matter how festive the day is. I remember I scolded and punished Juan Or too on his recent birthday because of something naughty he did....imagine the birthday boy having to celebrate his big day, supposed to be something happy for him and yet kena scolded teruk-teruk and cried! ^_^
