If it weren’t for the plastic teapot that gives it away, you’d think (I hope) that he was going through and making notes of some of the white papers I had printed to read. As one of the *good examples … Continue reading
Yup- it’s already going to be Friday already tomorrow. Took today and Friday off from work, just to “do stuff” with Caitlin. All week so far she’s been holed up in the apartment with Hot Mummee working from home, and … Continue reading
School kids nationwide are on holidays from this weekend on.
Caitlin has some holiday homework to do for the week off school, from (as far as I can see- gotta check her bag/books) 3 subjects of English, Malay and Chinese. Each of them have a date on the homework pages for respective dates of the week- yes, the teachers are pacing the kids so that they have homework each of the holidays.
Hot Mummee and I are of the opinion that Caitlin, whilst it’s a lazy-ish Saturday afternoon, that she can do as much of them as she can, even to have them all completed. Caitlin on the other hand, quite vehemently objects, saying that she should follow the pace that the teachers have set, to listen to what the teachers have told the class.
HM herself thinks that Caitlin is just being lazy, whereas I was seated beside her surfing whilst she was quite happily completing the homework that was set for the first few days- so I know she isn’t lazy per se.
What would you do? I kinda respect Caitlin’s respect for what the teachers have said, despite also somewhat agreeing with HM’s rationale to complete her homework early in the holidays.
Caitlin had fever on Sunday. So she didn’t attend her 1st session of her art class (actually it would be her 2nd session, they allowed her a trial session last weekend to assess her: behaviour, “standard” of her skills like … Continue reading
I have this really old and (therefore) oversized tank top; probably got it from Petaling Street many years ago.
I wear it to bed, and sometimes don’t change out of it, and even go out getting take away lunch- it gets hot okay! Besides I am only going to get hawker-food lunch, nothing fancy (as long as HM isn’t with me she won’t get embarrassed).
Yesterday that was what I did. Came home and sat beside Caitlin to lunch together
She says to me, “Daddee, don’t wear that again” and gazed at the arm(pit) hole.
“I can see things..”
The only times Caitlin sees me topless is when we go swimming. And even then she sometimes catches glimpses of the things when I hold her in the water- she doesn’t see me topless and my things often.
And I haven’t exactly been in the best shape these years. Now I have really scarred her for life, with my man-boobs.
It’s hard looking for tank tops now, the cheap Petaling Street type. The ones I managed to find the last time are kinda fitting and thick, defeating the purpose of wearing something light when it’s hot. But I guess I have a young lady in the house now, and I gotta respect her wish.
It still gets hot though… and it’s about time I do something about the man-boobs and tyres.
Nope- no photos with this post. Don’t wanna scar you even this late in your life…
Being the youngest I grew up with books and some comics already in the house (as well as contemporary music like The Carpenters, some Beatles, Glen Campbell, John Denver… Oh my I’m scaring myself while I list this) One of … Continue reading
Woken by the kids, got them some morning snacks, and since it wasn’t too sunny and hot….
Luckily for everyone, Caleb actually likes to push from behind. But it won’t be long though, before he’d be wanting to ride.
Yes, they were still in their jammies. It’s Sunday okay- give us parents a break!
Evening came and it was time to get ready for bed.
Caleb can express his hunger quite audibly / comprehensibly now, by telling us “nan-nan”.
As you can see he’s quite comfortable on the beanbag. Quite a relief for all of us, since we don’t always have to be watching him when he feeds now.
Caitlin, on the other hand, was being rather cheeky about bedtime. Calls to her to go clean her teeth went unanswered.
We found her like this.
Now that’s one way of getting out of doing something. I gotta try that with Hot Mummee one day….
