Sorethroat and what I missed

So I caught Tomato's coughing bug and is now down with sorethroat. My voice doesn't sound normal and my nose can't decide whether to get fully blocked or not. GRRR.

And you know what I missed most now? ICE CREAM. I WANT TO EAT THEM. OH WHY!!!


but look at the bright side, at least my diet is controlled, since i need  to now to prevent no.2 from getting too big.

BUT STILL, I want to get better so I can eat ICE CREAM, INDIAN FOOD and all. :(

LOL things Tomato said

#1

I can't remember exactly when, but while in the car, heading home, I asked my no.1 (Tomato), what have she been doing at Yi Yi's (the nanny) house. She said play (her usual answer).

Me : 有哭哭吗? (Did you cry?)
Tomato : 没有ler, 没有哭哭。(No ler,  I didn't cry)
Me : 真的吗??姨姨讲你一点一点就哭。 (Really? Cos yi yi mentioned to me you cry over petty things)
Tomato : 我没有哭哭!我笑笑 (I didn't cry, I smile) * and turns over to look at me and smiled*

LOL!!

#2

Sometimes to con her to sleep *ahem*, I will show her some short clips about animals  on youtube. That night, I think we were watching a clip on elephants I think. But kids being kids, its never enough for them, and she saw a clip on spiders at the side menu when the clip ended. And demanded to watch it.

Me : Yucks!!!Comok 你要看spider??? (Yucks!!!! why do you want to watch spider????)
Tomato :我要看Yucks!!!我要看Yucks!!! (I want to watch YUCKS!!!I WANT TO WATCH YUCKSS!!)
-________________- *obviously she has mistaken the that spider is called Yucks.

#3

This happened last night.

me : What do you think we should name your sibling?
Tomato : CHAI S## B##
Oink & Me : *@@!!!* WHAT??
Oink : Your sibling's sirname should be SIM, not CHAI, ok?

LOL *Note : CHAI S## B## is her best friend's name at school.

Bye-bye Chut chut!

We call pacifier Chut Chut (pronounced as choot choot).  It has been a worry for me because Tomato seem so addicted to it. We need to bring it out for outings, she can demand for it anytime anywhere. Deny her that, she will throw a tantrum.

But as fate have it, on the night of her 3rd birthday, she somehow misplaced her chut chut and we all can't find it. So she has to go to sleep without it. And oh boy, it was a loooonnngg night. She kept mumbled and whined in her sleep for it.

Daddy Oink found it the next day, and she was in such a bad mood after school, she cried the whole way from school to Grandma's house. Oink later cut the chut chut and give her, she was pacified but somehow may be the feel is different already and Oink told her now its broken, worms can go in 'x'. That trick somehow worked. And she pulled it out voluntarily. And said she doesn't want it anymore.

For that day onwards, her addiction to chut chut dropped significantly. The first few nights, she sometime wake up around 3am-4am, and will whine for it, and then remembered about the "worms" and stopped whine about it and go back to sleep.

And I am proud to say, for 11 days, she is chut-chut free! :)

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.
