Life at 2

Nothing much's been going on lately. And no, we didn't adopt Joi the Poodle in the end because the husband is not convinced. Nonetheless, we hope that Joi gets rehomed successfully to Andy's cousin who's been pestering his folks for a dog since Maverick was 1 year old!

Here's Adam enjoying his buble bath in the jacuzzi this morning.
Hubby had a naive plan to make him come to bed with us so we could all sleep in late on Sunday but obviously that plan failed miserably!

Look who's all rise & shine???!

After his bath, Daddy got his act together and we all headed to Parkway Parade for lunch and Adam's haircut.

Alfresco lunch at PP

and the plunge!

New member of the brood?

Ever since we moved, we've been contemplating with the idea of having another dog.
Maverick, our 7yo Border Collie, stays with my in-laws because he practically grew up with them since he was 3 months old and my MIL is very attached to him, therefore we left things as they were and our new home has been kept void of another doggy being.

Thing is, Hubby has always liked big dogs and we were actually thinking of either another Border Collie or a Golden Retriever, the latter which is milder and more placid for our lifestyles.
However, it is timely that my Aunt is giving up her Toy Poodle, Joi, for adoption at a fee to anyone who is sincere in keeping a dog.
She said she would be more than glad to let us have Joi since she knows she will be in good hands and at least it's family and she can still see Joi once awhile or at family gatherings.

Joi is a 2.5 yo Sterilised female Poodle.
Color: Apricot (as you can see lah)
Toilet habits: Goes potty in a pee tray
Feeding: eats 2 small meals everyday and then does her business after meals.
She is obedient, knows simple commands and is healthy, free from skin problems or any illness.
Reason for giving away: Due to having a baby and some disagreement with Hubby and her elders.
Adoption fee: $300 comes with food, cage, pet carrier, pee tray, EVERYTHING.
T&C: New owner must be sincere dog lover and should never sell or give Joi away in the event that new owner is unable/unwilling to keep her. At such a point, Joi must be returned to my Aunt and never be given away or sent to SPCA.

Pros of Poodle:
- Doesnt shed
- No skin problem (as opposed to my ex-Sheltie Alice who had chronic skin problems)
- small and portable
- obedient

Cons of Poodle
- It's another living thing afterall, therefore the added responsibility
- Needs regular grooming at the groomer's

How how how? Should we adopt Joi???

Updates on my new job & staying on our own

Hello! Welcome to my cam-whoring-at-work look.

This is not ter-kua!!!

If you are still debating which hospital is the BESTEST place to deliver your bundle - it has to be Mt Alvernia without a doubt!
The confinement food is nicer, and the nurses are much friendlier, being a Christian hospital and all.
I'm saying this not only because I delivered Adam in MAH 2 years back (lucky me to have had yummy food and caring nurses/lactation consultant checking on me all the time), but also based on my experience shuttling between MAH and GEH :)

Anyway today is one of the good days, I finished clinic at 3pm and went with my boss to MAH for a THBSO. After work, Andy & I brought Adam to the 1st day of Motherhood baby fair at Expo Hall 6B and stocked up on our fast depleting baby supplies.
Funnily, I happen to subsist in a tiny but extremely expensive family of 3 now.
And speaking of which, I have not gone on a date with the Husband for MONTHS. The occasional dinner out with the kid is not counted!!!!!

I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeedddddd a proper sit-down dinner-for-two and spend some couple time alone!
