A Night without Dadi...

March is going to be doom's month cos my boss from Singapore will be in Msia for few weeks. Thinking about it makes everyone here get instant headache. So probably not much blog post from me then. :) That's why I'm blogging like I am having diarrhea now.

J was all happy yesterday when I picked him up. He took his bag, wore his shoes and walked out happily saying "BABAI" to nanny. Since most of the major roads were flooded, we decided (more of I decided, since there's only the 2 of us) to just stay home and cook some porridge.

I was so blur, thinking that half cup of rice will be able to give me 2 bowls of porridge. But I was wrong. Cos cooking on direct fire and double boiling need different quantity of rice. So we ended up with barely one bowl of porridge and my son seems to have good appetite, walloped near to half bowl of rice.

Lil J surprised me again last night. Usually he will fling/open our room door wide, allowing mozzies to come into the room. Not that he doesn't want to close the door, but the door can't be closed from inside the room, unless you hold the handle. Since he can't reach for the handle, he will just leave it wide open. So last night I told him, "Come mami teach you how to close the door okay?" And I tied a long ribbon to the handle. He shake his head. I said,"aiks don't wanna learn? Fine." I went and did my cleaning. He came out and went back into the room, closing the door using the ribbon tied to the handle. No wonder he shake his head, he already knew how!

He happily sat on his potty while asking me to sing "Sally the Camel" song for him while mami gotto hold the camel and do the clown gestures while he holds a goat in his hand and pretend to sing like his clown mother. Nope he didn't pee or poo in the potty after all the singing and reading. The night before, after singing like 10 times of the same song, read the same book for almost 5 times, finally he peed in the potty. He shocked himself and refused to sit on it after that. He said "Eyer!!!"

I asked him "where is dadi?". He just continued to play with his toys. Normally he will say "Da Di Di" and run to the door. Maybe he knows that his dad won't be around last night.

We "ayang" each other while lying down on the bed. He even asked me to bite him and tickle him. And suddenly he showed his tongue and wanna touch mine with it. Hehe.. So the whole night is just hugging, tickling, laughing and talking. He tried to repeat what I said but it always end up with Yeah Yeah....Well, at least he is trying.

Suddenly he went down and brought his potty and nod his head. I said "WUAH Good Boy!" And I fastfast (ah long time didn't use this word already, hehe) strip his diaper and he sat there saying MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM and he stood up and showed me the hand gesture "Don't have". Kena conned. Nevermind...maybe false alarm.

Then he lied down on the bed and yawned. I asked him "Darling, do you want nen nen?" No reply, busy playing with his Henry. I asked again and he "nodded". This is the first time he answered me. So happy, like kena lottery. :)

I didn't sleep well last night, so I am walking in zig zag form today. I actually waited for my alarm to ring. The lil one woke up after me. He lets me do my stuff while he enjoyed his milk and watching channel 703 Asian Food Channel (training him to be a chef, muahahahhaha) at the same time.  He happily took his fav toys and put them into his Barney Bag, wore his USH (shoes) and walked to my car and sat quietly in the children car seat. Once reached nanny's house, no fuss, happyily said BABAI! and walked into the house.

Long post eh? Seems like a long night to me. And seems like we have done alot in just that few hours. More compared to when Big C is around. And lil J seems to behave better when the father is not around. Totally opposite behaviour when the father is around. Is your kid like this too when the father/mother is not around?

    Jayden don't behave when dadi not around because dadi gives too much of face to him la.

    Can see finger print on the leg doesn't mean whack VERY VERY hard. A little spanking won't kill him. It is for his own good.

    Jayden is very cheeky & mischevious boy, he makes sure that you are watching before he do anything notty.

    Just remember, don't whack the head la. But can ask him do the Guinness Book of Records with "Mandarin Oranges" and not "Durian".

    HA HA HA

    BUT NO MATTER HOW NOTTY & CHEEKY JAYDEN IS, I LOVE MY CHEEKY NEPHEW A LOT LOT LOT

    Lots of "Ayang" from Ah Boh to Ah Den

    Ah Boh not "A Boar"

  20. When PaPa's in the room during bedtime, they won't settle down n sleep. So gotta shoo him out so that I can make the kids sleep. :) Apart from bedtime, their behaviour is the same irregardless of who's around n who's not - active n noisy as usual!
