My two babies

Big baby.

Adam insists that Ashton joins him as he plays every night. He is very protective over his brother and I am very proud of him.

Little bubs.

Thank you God for being so kind as to bless us with two beautiful children. Every night I watch my babies sleep, the rise and fall of their chests as they breathe their soft breaths, my heart swells with so much love for them that it might explode.
Our home is now filled with toys, trikes and laughter.
I could not have asked for more.

Buddha baby

Hi, my name is Ashton and I am slightly round.
I have a protruding belly and many folds on my body; even my armpits have folds.
As such, Mummy calls me her Buddha baby.

Good day and see ya around!

My Buddha baby

Why this Buddha baby got double chin??  

With a face like this, he can get away with anything!

I chose this photo for Ashton's passport application. Yeap you heard right - we're making his passport.
Some parents just don't learn do they? Taking on the world with 2 pesky children now.

As an aside, I would like to share this amazing video with you.
It's about a family with young children travelling and experiencing the world.
Not that we're gonna trade our comfy beds to live in tents anytime soon, but this is truly inspiring.

Port of Lost Wonder

It's been years since I last set foot on Palawan Beach at Sentosa.
Back then, I was still single and went there for suntanning and beach volleyball.
Now?? Married with two kids and become Aunty already also go Palawan. 厉害吗? (li hai mah?)

There's a pirate ship water play area with foam party that's been set up just for kids, or so I've heard.
Gotta check it out for ourselves!

What: Port of Lost Wonder
Where: Palawan beach, Sentosa
Entrance and parking: $7 per vehicle, parking available at the beach.
How much: Kids go in for $8 per pax on Weekdays / $15 on weekends. Adults go in for free.

Me and my little Botak.

 Like Zoukout like that. Kids nowadays more happening than their parents!

Gotta enjoy this cutesy phase while it lasts.

Life with two.

Recently, an ex-school mate of mine who is expecting her second child SMSed me asking how's life with two kids.
My reply to her was, "It's crazy. I don't even have time to pluck my armpit hair".
It's true - I can't make this shit up.

I'm slightly irritated at this point of my life.
Having two kids under the age of four has totally thrown my life out of whack.
Every night, I dread having to put both kids to sleep.

You see, Adam is rowdy and keeps the baby awake. Yet, he cannot sleep without me because I'm the only person in his whole wide world who can put him to bed.
The baby cannot stop sucking on my boobs. Left breast, dozes off. Put baby down in crib. Starts fidgeting. Escalates to crying. Right breast. Baby dozes off. Put him back into crib.
Meanwhile, I tell Adam to go back to his room and sleep, only about 700 times. But we all know it too well - he walks in and out of my room about 750 times. And because of this, the noise is keeping the baby awake.

Who exchanged the Adam who could sleep through the night alone with this needy kid??

When the baby finally sleeps, I drag Adam back to his room & we fall asleep together on his bed because I am too bloody mother-fucking exhausted.
The next time I wake up is about 3-4hours later, to the cries of the baby in crib in my room. I also have my contact lens/ glasses and hair band still on because I was too bloody mother-fucking exhausted to remove them. Night after night after night.
If there's one thing motherhood has made me do, it's swearing. I find myself swearing a lot after children entered my life.
I hardly sleep anymore, fuckit, but life still goes on. My bladder is full, goddammit, but the baby can't break away from my boobs. I smell of stale cheese and have spit-ups on my T-shirt, the same one I wore since yesterday. Shit.
What did I swear about in the past anyway? A broken nail?

Another 3-4 hours later I wake up again for another feeding, and then it's almost daybreak and soon I have to wake Adam up for school, and get on with my day's activities functioning on so little sleep.
By mid-day, my hair is in such a mess that my keys could get lost in them.

I now have two needy children despite the fact that I have a husband, a mother-in-law and a helper.
Weekends are no better. The entire household is hyped up about not having to school/ work and everyone but me seems to be happy with lesser sleep.
Never in my life did I imagine myself to pray for Mondays. Once Adam is out the door on his way to school, I do cartwheels.
I am grouchy and disheveled.
I wish this is only a passing phase and I can get my own life back. Soon.

By the way, here are my two slightly irritating children:

Opa Gangnam style at 9:30pm on a Tuesday night.
Yes, it's a school night and I let my child dance on the table-top.
Minus 300 parenting points.
Buddha baby with double chin.
A romper which says "I want Mummy's boobs" would be more apt.

Goodness, I do love my children. I'm just saying, being a mother is such a tough job!

Happy Anniversary - Noman & Siling 150809


It was Siling & Norman's anniversary but Andy, Adam & I tagged along with Siling's Mama and sister too Heh heh.
Went to Sukiya for the shabu-shabu buffet.

Chairman Adam.

Halfway through our dinner, Adam started fussing and getting cranky in his stroller so we had to take turns pacifying him. Siling's mama is so good to help me with him so that I could eat.
She's so nice!

Finally, our little family shot:

I look damn tired and without makeup in all the photos. That's cos we had to bring Baby A everywhere with us for the weekend (due to Andy's mum being in Indonesia), and THAT is tiring as hell!
It's like running the Standard Chartered 42km marathon, minus the sense of achievement -__-

I salute those mums who can bring their babies out alone.. with stroller, diaper bag and baby and taking public transport. Woah!

Tai-tai's gathering 140809!


It's our LOL gathering - Ladies Of Leisure, or Laugh Out Loud.. Cos we are so crazy we are always Laughing out Loud.. LOL!
Charmaine, Chris & I met up first for dinner at Siglap before going to Fullerton with Meena.
Chris brought her 8mth old Nat and I, Adam. After sitting in his stroller for a grand total of 10min, he started fussing and Nat had to investigate.
See how well behaved Nat is?
But thankfully when our food arrived, Adam fell asleep on his own in his stroller and we could all eat in peace.

This is also my first time bringing Adam out on my own, without my usual entourage of hubby and family.. Luckily everything went on well!

The Yummy Mummies with our Babies:

After dinner, Chris & I dropped our little ones back home and tucked them in for bedtime before making our way to Fullerton Hotel for our way way way-overdue Chocolate buffet!

Gold flakes for deco somemore... Very chi chi lor... But we this bunch of crazy women just kept on talking and talking that we threw away all our mannerisms hehe

Now for the unglam photos!

"Do you need to express yourself?" Meena asked me the moment she saw me.
Oh man my gals never fail to crack me up!
And it's wonderful to know Chris because I honestly dont know many women around my age who are mums, that's why I'm always bugging Chris about parenting advice.

We had so much to talk about - mostly about our MILs and babies, breastfeeding and Charmaine's colorful love life haha
After hearing about Chris' and Meena's MILs, I think we're so lucky to have wonderful MILs.
I mean, Andy's mum does my laundry and cooks cod fish for me everyday just because Im bf-ding, on top of the usual housework. Where to find sucha nice woman who treats me even better than my own mum? not that my Mum doesnt treat me well lah..
But then, even my Mum doesnt do my laundry lor. So I really thank my lucky stars and feel greateful every single day for just being well, happy.

Our Tai tai gathering ended when my breasts engorged and I had to go home to express myself.
It was such a fun and much-needed night. I love my gals so much man, and I had no idea how much I missed them till I saw them. *Muacks*

P.S... Loot from Charmaine's BKK trip:

MAC mascara, Naraya bag and pouches. I heart these because they are so pretty and I'm using the pouch for my diaper bag - to keep things like breast pump and teats because interior is lined with plastic. Waterproof and wont wet the exterior fabric. Brilliant!
