眼睛关, 脚直直

Tomato was coughing whole night and can't sleep well after we got back from KL. So i let her skip school and I stayed at home to take care of her. 

That morning, before I went to shower, I told her to play by herself. Then I saw her petting her doll's head. The sort of like "poking the eyes" and I heard her say : "眼睛关", the she run her hands through the legs and said "脚直直". :D That's what I have been saying to her at night when she refuse to sleep. She used it on her doll. I certainly didn't POKE her eyes, just so you know, and before u accuse me of child abuse.
 

And after my shower, this is what I saw. AHAHA, lately she likes to arrange her toys. Only the doll is technically hers. The others are my gifts. Teddy bear is my first bear from my dad. Mom cleaned it, and patched the nose back. So its a bit crooked.

What are my thoughts now that I am 6 mths along

Actually I have had many thoughts and some ongoing thoughts. hmm. sounds very complicated.

First of all, I would like to announce no.2's nickname. It will be Cookie, for tough cookie. Cos I walked around seoul and busan until legs feel like falling off, and still Cookie can kick me so hard at times. And we also survived a fall in the bathroom in the 1st trimester. SHHHH.. my in laws and parents doesn't know 'x' And we also survived on plain porridge for 3 days when I had diarrhea (not just diarrhea, I also vomited) just days before CNY. Grr..

Anyway, back to my thoughts..

What I worry most is would our routine will go haywire. I think this is inevitable. What I can do now, is think of how to lessen, reduce the impact. I need to talk to Oink on this.  I really like our dynamics now. We each know our role, and what to do everyday, and the arrival of no. 2 will for sure change this a lot. But oh well, we shall see and re-adjust. I always believe everything will end well in the end.


My next worry, is how will Tomato accept the new addition to the new family. She would have to share the attention, love, time, everything with the new BB. She is always so attached to me. Likes to cuddle up to me. By the time new BB  comes, she will need to share her human. I am ready for the worse, but I hope she will slowly adjust and accept. Remind self that no matter how busy I will be, I need to make some time to spend 1 on 1 time with her.

For this pregnancy, I somehow takes things easier. I do not keep my diet as strict as my first pregnancy (I think that lead to my food poisoning case before CNY 'x'). I moved more, walk more, still carry Tomato sometimes. I knew what to do, what mistake to not repeat. For one thing, I shall pack bb's daddy one more set of cloth this time in my hospital bag, cos I puked all over him during my last labor, and he had no clothes to change until 3 hours later when MIL came... LOL...oops.

Another thing is the gender of the Baby. We know the gender dy. And heard Fil hope this time is a boy. BUT! I cant control all this right.  What will be will be. :)

I worry, I can't love Cookie as I have spent all my love on Tomato. I have this thought earlier on, but I have grew to love Cookie, and am surprised that my heart can be so big and capable of great love.

I missed wearing nice pretty clothes, and have been looking at online boutiques and thinking when-lah can I wear non-loose clothes again. Shopping, I will come back to you soon, I promise..LOL

Let me end this post with a photo of Tomato. This blog need some photos.



AHAHAHAHA....a photo of her showing her mouth full of carbonara 'x' @ sharing planet

My Pre-K princess

So, my girl has started schooling this year. She will turn 3 anyway by may. We thought it will be a great idea to expose her school environment and to better prepare her for kindy. Besides, its much better than watching cartoons at nanny's.

So when she started school, it didn't go as expected. You can read my ordeal here.

Now, 3 mths after, things has been good. She finishes her bento almost everyday *beaming with pride*. And, she's suddenly improved a lot on her speech, her pronunciation has gotten much much better. She can sing so many songs nowadays, some new songs she learned from school. And last night she did the school's cheer. She also don't get sick as often as before now. Things has been looking good. :)

When asked if she likes to go school, she will say she likes it, when asked what she did at school, she said “吃东西” what the !!! AHAHAHA, and proceed to tell you what she ate. Anyway, its good to know she enjoyed what we prepared for her. We try to prepare different things everyday. I try to include fruits into her bento. Be it strawberries (her fav), grapes, apple slice or pear slice. She put on her own socks and shoes everyday. *SMUG*

Since she has been singing a lot, she tries to delay her bed time by SINGING!!! Among her favourites are ABC song, Twinkle twinkle little star and 我的朋友在那里?Most of the time, I will be asleep before her 'x' So nowadays, I don't play songs on the phone anymore for the baby in my belly since jie jie will sing every night. And baby will be kicking in the belly as response. :)

No. 2

yup, we did it again.

As for now, I am 4 mths 1 wks pregnant. 'x'!

How did we found out? My menses was late, and i didn't even suspect that I am pregnant, only oink is suspicious. It couldn't be. Its nearly impossible. The app in my phone indicates that its a safe time. Its way past my ovulation period.

It was until I had  a prolonged cough that just wont go away. I went to the dr, and got some meds. It was then, just to be safe. I used a test kit. And to my horror, 2 lines appeared! Still I cannot believe I am pregnant. I must be sick! Cos i read somewhere about a guy who tried to play on his wife's test kit, got 2 lines and went to check and found out he had prostate cancer! I was troubled the whole day. What if I am sick? Tomato is still so young , she needs her momma. Or could it be that I am pregnant? But its too soon...we had plan to start production later, preferably during our upcoming korea trip :D.

So after a day of pondering, I shared my dilemma with Oink. Who said we should go to the gynae straightaway. And behold, the ultrasound scan showed that I am 5 wks pregnant! So the damn app DID CHEAT ME.

I love you

I have been greeting Tomato good nights before sleeping followed by I love you. She has been doing the the same back to me.


Last night (3rd Feb 2015), she suddenly called me "Mommy..." So I turned my head facing her. She put her little hand on my cheek and said "I love you" awwwwww... My heart melted and I said I love you too. And a tear escaped from my left eye. Moments like this makes your forget all the troubles your little one gave you..AHAHAHHA

Dear God, please give me more patience & strength!

I have been feeling under the weather lately. Being plagued with coughs and then towards the end, I was infected by flu through Tomato.

Tomato has started her pre-K not long ago. We enrolled her at a nearby Kindy for the convenience. Its like 3 mins drive away from home.

Everyday when we pass by the school, she will sweetly say "Mommy, I want to go to skoo". Then I will tell her soon baby, soon. So the day finally came, she can't wake up -______________________-. I had to pull her up from bed and get her ready in a rush! I was nervous! Anyway, after much effort, we manage to get her ready. And she seem ok, no crying, curios-ly checking out the place. I left her there after half an hour of accompanying her 'x'

First week went by quite well. No crying, no fuss. Only cried when going to nanny after lunch (almost everyday).That is until she got sick. She got flu suddenly. So I took a day off to take care of her.  After that, everything went downhill. She started to throw tantrums over petty things. Phone rings upsets her, ask her to eat upsets her, change tv channel upsets her, change clothes upsets her, bath time upsets her. Its like my sweet cute girl went to school, got cloned, and what came back to us is a little monster. And did i mention the mood swings? One minute she is jolly, agree to do something, the next 5 secs, she can change her mind, and throw a fit about it. We are at our wits end. What is the matter? What the h**l is wrong? She won't tell, all she does is cry and cry, scratching her head, eyes swollen with all the crying, tears an snot , and saliva all over her face.We can only have our peace when she's asleep.

Experienced friends have told us, its will pass in a few weeks. Its like that. Its normal. Oh really, dear God, please give me the strength and patience to go through this.

I manage to find this article as informational:
http://www.babycenter.com/0_tantrums-why-they-happen-and-what-to-do-about-them_65484.bc

It made me understand more about why it could happen. Has something happened at school?Is she feeling stressful? Have I sent her to school too early? Is she unhappy about the change of routine? It could be because either one of it or ALL. SIGHHH....I will just have to keep observing and monitor and see how it goes from here.
