    • Little Sweet Doll

      December 29, 2006


      I was so afraid that Emily does not like to play dolls. I bought a few sets of Barbie dolls when it was on sale and a year ago she shows no interest. Now it is kept in the cupboard until she is older. Last week, she went to the toy box to get the broken baby doll. It is one of those irritating singing doll. Fortunately the sound card in the doll was broken. :clap:

      I was surprised at what she does with it. She patted the baby doll to sleep and tell mummy to be quiet. She sang to it. She took a toy bottle and fed it milk. She told mummy that she wanted to sleep next to her baby doll. She took care of it very well. I am amazed where she learns that from. It makes me wonder does every gal born with maternal instinct even before she conceived a child? :sc: I don’t see Tim doing that.

      Yesterday, I decided to get a proper baby doll set for her with milk bottle, pacifier and change of clothes. She was so happy and she carried it around. She gave the doll a name and it is called Amanda baby. I have no clue where she picked that name from.

    • A Gift For You

      December 25, 2006

      A present for you. Today is Christmas day. Today is to remind all of you that it is the birthday of Jesus Christ, so wish him a Happy Birthday. At sermon today, my church elder reminded us that the world has forgotten the meaning of Christmas. He said in the newspaper, malls, media, everywhere there is no mention of Jesus but a lot of emphasis on trees, santa, shopping for gifts and rudolf. Hrmm…the silly red nose deer is not even important.

      If you do not know who Christ is, it is time for you to find out. Christmas day is the day when God greatest plan was executed through Christ. It will be the greatest gift to you if you know who he is and believe. This message is my gift to all of you.

      “BLESSED LORD and God, we come to you, aware that you have pierced our world. You became flesh, you dwelled among us, you saw us in our fallen state, you reached in and pulled us out. You offered us salvation, you offered us mercy. And we are ever thankful”

      By Max Lucado

      What did I get for my children?

      I got the idea from this blog called my2lovelyrays. It is a doodle pad, you can use the colours on the pad and it comes off easily if you wipe it off with a damp cloth. It comes with stencils, easy for a 2 year old to trace a picture and colour it. The bad is the when the colours get on the hand, it cannot be wash off immediately. My gal painted her little fingers with it.

      Have a blessed Christmas!

    • Barnyard

      December 23, 2006

      A good friend of mine gave me 2 free movie tickets in Prangin Mall. I can watch any shows with it. I took the children to watch Barnyard.

      Barnyard was humorous with a plenty of actions to keep the children excited throughout the movie. The show talk about a heresy cow named Otis who wanted to run away from his responsibilities. However he cannot run far when his responsibilities catch up to him. His father Ben was the leader of the barn and took care of all the animals, protecting them from harm. However one night, while he was protecting some chickens from the hungry wild coyotes, he lost his life. Otis had to take over. Otis never wanted to become a leader, he wanted a fun life and love to party all night. All had to change when he was faced with it.

      I must say the movie was done in a very creative manner and lots of surprises. The plot was predictable, hero saves the day kind of plot. It works for the children.

    • Christmas Shopping

      December 21, 2006

      Finally I am done with all my Christmas shopping. It is really convenient to have a big mall near where I worked. You can get everything in 1 place. Yesterday I took a long lunch break to get Christmas gift. I got 2 huge gifts for Tim and Emily, both the same thing, preventing them from fighting. With that, it has already burned a hole in my pocket. Anyway, this year my hubby and I got good bonuses, so why not. I really love to see their expressions when they open the presents. That is the 2 big yellow boxes. I got the gift idea from a blogger. Have a guess?

      Next, my hubby is a Christmas Eve baby. I thought of getting him a cake that shape like a canon camera. I contacted Mama Min because Sasha was here in Penang, she offered to help me to deliver it. However I am a few days late, it was too short notice to do 1. I got him a gift that is as good, something related to his interest. That is the red gift.

      The smaller yellow gift is for my nephew. Ohh, I also need to get 2 small gifts for the nursery Christmas party, they have a gift exchanging program. I donno about you, I just love giving out presents during Christmas. More joy for me in giving than to receive.

      Mummy: Pa what cake you want for your birthday?
      Tim: I want swimming pool cake.
      Emily: I want Tigger cake.
      Tim: Swimming pool cake.
      Emily: Tigger cake….
      Mummy: Hey Look! See what that uncle doing. *you get the point*

      Have a Blessed Christmas To You and Great New Year!

    • Stool Conversation

      December 20, 2006

      I was working on my computer in the study room, the children were watching their favorite cartoon.

      Emily: Mummy, I want to ngor mm mm (pass motion).
      Mummy: Please go and get the potty from the toilet. *She went to get her own potty*
      Emily: Kor kor, mei mei ngor mm mm. Don’t disturb ah. Kor Kor, you don’t have any mm mm.
      Tim: Yes, I got some mm mm. *He went to get potty*
      Emily: Mummy, I finished my mm mm liao. Kor Kor still mm mm.
      Mummy: Ok, let me clean you up.
      Emily: So chau bi hor? (aka smelly)
      Mummy: Yeap, you must drink lots of water so no chau bi lor.
      Emily: Mei mei drink already.

      Emily has been learning lots of words lately. Her favorite word now is “queen spay al” as in Queensbay Mall.

      I am also reducing biscuits in their diet. I heard from my SIL that biscuit cause heatiness which is why the stool is sometimes hard and smelly. I tried to replace it with bun, bread or cake.

    • Strike Off Diapers

      December 18, 2006

      Yippy, finally I can strike off diaper from my shopping list. Emily is fully trained to go diaperless. It was a slow process, first I weaned her off the daily wear. Slowly take off during naptime and yesterday took it off from her night sleep. I remembered one naptime she did make a little accident. However once in the middle of the night, even with her diaper on, she called me to help her sh sh (aka pee). I took her to the toilet bowl. She can sh sh on the toilet bowl or the potty. However she needs help to get up on the toilet bowl. I must say that she controls her bladder very well. Often her night diaper is dry.

      However I have one minor problem. I hate going to public toilet. It is either wet or you can see people shoe print on the toilet seat. Not to mention some gross stuff I saw. My gal preferred to sit on the toilet bowl. She doesn’t want to pee when mummy carry her. She doesn’t pee on the floor in a squatting position. Now I make sure she pee before we go out. I am slowly training her to pee while I am carrying her. If you have any good ideas, I appreciate your comments.

      I know in the US, in every toilet you can take those paper toilet seat covers and place it on the seat before sitting on it. Maybe I can ask Vivien to send me a box of it. :giggles:

  • Where?

    December 13, 2006

    Daddy was setting up the swimming pool for the children to have some water splashing time. Whenever they hear swimming pool, they get all excited and grin from ear to ear. Our swimming pool is very easy to setup, no need air, just add water and it will stand on its own.

    Anyway, Tim rushed to the toy box and pick up a fishing rod. We usually put all the pool toys in a bucket at the back porch. As usual, upon seeing the brother taking a toy, Emily would want the same. She wanted the fishing rod. I looked at daddy, ask him to look for it. He went to the back porch bucket and ran back upstairs to go through the toy box.

    As he was finding, Emily said “Where is my fishing rod?” a few times. Timothy being a resourceful boy (from mummy’s gene) went to the back porch and retrieved the fishing rod for her. He yelled “Daddy I found the fishing rod already”. It is always difficult to ask my hubby to find things because he will never find it, even if it is right in front of him. Anyone knows why?

  • Lovers

    December 13, 2006

    I saw this in Huisia‘s blog and my itchy fingers went to the site to try it out. See what I got? I am dependent on LOVE, without it I am incomplete. Not sure how true?

    You are The Lovers

    Motive, power, and action, arising from Inspiration and Impulse.

    The Lovers represents intuition and inspiration. Very often a choice needs to be made.

    Originally, this card was called just LOVE. And that’s actually more apt than "Lovers." Love follows in this sequence of growth and maturity. And, coming after the Emperor, who is about control, it is a radical change in perspective. LOVE is a force that makes you choose and decide for reasons you often can’t understand; it makes you surrender control to a higher power. And that is what this card is all about. Finding something or someone who is so much a part of yourself, so perfectly attuned to you and you to them, that you cannot, dare not resist. This card indicates that the you have or will come across a person, career, challenge or thing that you will fall in love with. You will know instinctively that you must have this, even if it means diverging from your chosen path. No matter the difficulties, without it you will never be complete.

  • Mop Mop Mop…

    December 11, 2006

    God has given me 2 blessed children, go see for yourself. They mopped the floor glittering clean. Let’s hope they continue to like what they are doing.

    Emily: Mummy don’t step on the floor, after fall down “kok tor tow” (knock the head)
    Tim: Mummy see dry already
    Tim: Mummy, don’t step here, after fall down, knock the head.
