camping at mum's place

For the whole month when hubby was away at Jakarta, we were camping at mum's place. I felt uneasy bringing the kids home at night alone so mum (and Dad and my brother WC) was kind to have us sleeping at their place. One whole month, except weekends. Thanks, Mum :-).

My schedule went upside-down. I often had to rush from work to home (tending to little things like watering the plants, checking the mails, quickly scheduling short posts, bringing my work clothes for tomorrow, etc.) and then to mum's. During weekends, when we're home, I was so tired tending to the kids and house on my own that I always fall asleep with the kids at night. For the whole month, I practically did not use my sewing machine :-(.

And for the first time, we celebrated Mother's Day without hubby. The kids missed their Papa tremendously, especially HQ. Although most of the time the kids were angels and very understanding, and I'm thankful for that.

I better stop whining... hahaha! Okla, besides having loving grandparents and an entertaining Kiu kiu (my brother), there were things that cheer the kids up, like HQ's first mail. It's a birthday card sent by Li You Yiyi. Look at HQ's jubilant smile! :-D. We celebrated HQ's birthday on one weekend with Papa before he flew off again. On the actual day itself, HQ had his birthday egg and was given ang pows by grandparents; thank you, Gong Gong and Popo! We had another candles blowing session. Here's my birthday boy :-).

That night, in our room at Popo's, the kids were very happy; laughing and being very very loud! :-D. © Lee Pei Yi. All rights reserved. Originally published for All images and text cannot be republished without express written permission.

You know,reading this post of yours reminds me how important the old folks are to us sometimes, let us just appreciate them whenever we can..

I was just telling a friend, the most treasure gift for old people is to have all their family members around and intact... that's is the world's greates joy to them not another million dollar in their bank, dont you agree?

you have a great weekend now and God Bless
