I had actually wanted to put this in the Random Quotes section of this blog (there, on the right), but thought it to be too significant.
It’s a short work week this week. In fact, Caitlin’s school is closed this week as most of the parents had wanted it so, so that their family could get away and be with loved ones during this festivity.
Last night as I was putting her to bed, I was apologising for not being able to bring her shopping during the day as I had implied earlier in the day (she loves to walk about in shopping centres). I had suggested that perhaps Grandma can bring her along during the following days of supermarket-shopping; since starting school she’s not been able to tag along on these trips as her grandparents do these rounds in the morning, and picks her up from school afterwards.
Yay, she exclaimed.
Then I mentioned that Wednesday and Thursday are public holidays for all, and maybe then we could go out and do something.
“Mummee too?” she asked.
“Yes Mummee too..”
“YAY! Then Daddee, Mummee, Di-di (Mandarin for younger brother) and Caitlin can go out as my family !!
Wooo… this Daddee thought….
She understands the concept. She appreciates the opportunity. She looks forward to the outing as a family unit.
It’s just great!
