Innocent sweetums

Last Saturday, as usual we took Eliza for her Gymboree classes. Her first class was Music class. We were late for the class and so my hubby decided to drop me first at the car park while he went around looking for a parking space. So that I can enter the class first and not wait for him. But I forgot that my socks were in the baby bag. I left the bag for my hubby to carry. You see parents need to wear socks in Gymboree. That's their rule. So I had to wait for my hubby to arrive. Eliza was already getting impatient and one of the teachers saw that we were waiting. So she brought Eliza in first. And I was so relieved and proud to see that she went in without me happily. That's a good sign she might be ready for kindergarten.

There's a girl by the name of Marissa who is turning 3 this June in her class. She's taller and bigger size than Eliza. She likes to be in the limelight and has the "cannot lose" attitude. So if someone does better than her she shows a face. Anyway, during the last session in music class, children are allowed to explore with some musical instruments which mainly consists of percussions like drums, castanets, xylophone, cymbals, triangles and etc.

So Eliza was happily playing with a xylophone when Marissa suddenly came up to her and snatch the xylophone away from her instead of sharing. Eliza followed her and wanted to play together. But she shouted "NO!" to Eliza and I felt bad for Eliza. I wanted to smack that girl real hard but I was trying to contain myself. I was telling myself if she say it another time I'm going to say something to her. Eliza wasn't frightened but she came to me saying,"wait a while ah, ok?" Isn't she so sweet? Instead of getting angry with Marissa, she decided to wait for her turn. I knew that it's no use waiting for Marissa so I distracted Eliza with other percussions.

That gave me a thought. What if Eliza gets bullied in kindergarten next time? And I won't be there to defend her? Will she be afraid to make friends ever?

Over the weekend

Over the weekend...

On Friday night, I told Lil' dahling that I'm going to take her to Gymboree just to get her to get things done. It really got her to change her pjs, brush her teeth, drink her milk but she got all excited and couldn't fall asleep. So she was terrorizing the bed and got me annoyed. I have to scold her many times until she finally co-operate.

On Saturday, she still remembers the Gymboree thingy and reminded us many times. I wonder if she would still be as enthusiastic as this come primary school. Took her for a swim in the morning and she was all excited. Took out her favourite Pooh bear swimming suit by herself and squealed all the way to the pool. When I wanted to take her out of the pool she said "go swimming!" So had to remind her about Gymboree again and then only she co-operate. She wanted to walk straight to the car in her swimming suit and float but I told her she can't go to Gymboree like that! LOL.

At Gymboree she didn't want to go back. Crying and screaming when we had to carry her out of that place. Really embarassing. I think the only child that does that. Others don't want to leave but they don't cry and scream. After a tiring day, she fell asleep while holding my hand at night on our beds.

On Easter Sunday morning, lil' dahling said "change clothes already!" This girl really is a 'kaki jalan' and my husband said she took it after me. So we went to church and she somehow knows that we are going to church because she said this in the car. "In the name of the father and of the son and of the holy spirit..Amen!" I was impressed.

At home before the afternoon nap, I pretended to sleep hoping that she would fall asleep soon too. I was wearing a singlet and was sleeping on my side. So I guess part of my breasts were exposed. She said "nen nen" and then poked my breast with added sound effects, "toing toing". I was trying hard not to laugh but where did she learn all this? *shaking my head*

6 months already

I'm already 6 months pregnant. And before you know it, soon baby no. 2 will arrive. I have mix feelings about this. Of course I am truly happy to have another baby but I am pretty anxious too about what the future holds. Will I be able to handle two kids? Will I be a good mother since I will have two children to pay attention? Will I even be a good wife? Will I still have time to cook? Will I have enough money to raise two kids? Any Malaysians could relate to this because it is really not cheap to raise a child.

With all those questions aside, I'm actually doing not too bad now. No more morning sickness. I get hungry easily and baby is growing fast even though some still say my belly is cute. I think I'm starting to swell too. I can see my nose is growing sideways. Haha. Oh no! I really dread for this to happen. I'll look like a pig! I won't look like me. The little one inside me is also getting stronger. Doing some acrobatics, some scratching and some kicking inside of me. I think this one's more active!

Eliza instead seems to be wanting more attention. Her bedtime is getting later and later. Very playful and wants both parents to sleep at the same time as her. She'll hold both of our hands and bring us in the room. So her father couldn't even watch any TV. Haha. And when we talk, she'll talk even louder. Makes it a little hard for us to have a decent conversation. She's getting so adorable too. She can recognize very well the one and only colour..PINK! Must be a girly girl. LOL. She will tell you, "pink colour, pink colour". Her recognition for other colours still need some brushing up. Haha. Sometimes she gets them right and sometimes she don't.

My husband is more protective now that I'm pregnant. He wants me to call when I reached home. If possible, he won't allow me to go anywhere alone or even with Eliza. I can't even bring Eliza to Gymboree by myself! But I'm not complaining, don't get me wrong. He did a sweet and touching thing the other day. I told him that I need to buy some buns for my breakfast the next morning because I have my monthly pre-natal check up the next morning. So I won't have time to eat my breakfast. He called me back a few moments later to tell me that he already bought the buns and I don't have to get them on my way back home. I was really happy and touched because at least the thought and effort was there. I told him when he came home that I was touched and he utterred, "you are my wife mar." LOL.

Here are some images and videos.

At Lake Titiwangsa. Photo was taken in February.

It was windy, so I bought this thing for her. Don't know what are they called.

She must have a go on this whenever she spots them at the mall.

Vainpot wearing sunglasses at night.

Even with fever, she still wants to have a ride. Before you scold me for being a bad mom taking her to the mall even with a fever, we had to because my in-laws were around. So we took them out for dinner.

Look like an expert but can one drive with two steering wheels?
