Wedding March

Today, we attended Alycia and Sherilyn’s sunday school teachers’ wedding. We had to arrive at the church by 10am and I was so worried we would be late again as the gals are not used to sleeping early and waking up early. I woke up at 6am, did some work on the computer, went for my jog and woke the gals up at 7:30am. We had to rush breakfast off, skipped the gals’ bath and quickly dress them up. Luckily, we managed to arrive at the church at 10am on the dot. Alycia who is usually not comfortable in crowds and with strangers, refused to partake in the wedding march whilst Miss Social Butterfly Sherilyn had a ball and was the centre of attraction with her antics. She even joined all the older kids in a choir singing “Jesus Loves Me This I Know” on stage and didn’t display any stage fright.

Despite much coaxing, Alycia refused to partake in the wedding march and kept tucking away from the kids. She just held on tightly to my hands and refused to let go of them.

When the wedding ceremony was over, Daddy brought us to Purple Cane Tea House for a lunch of authentic chinese dishes with tea leaves cooked in almost all their dishes.

Home-cooked Food

Remember the fresh mushrooms, fresh bamboo shoots, fresh lotus seeds and fresh gingko that I bought last week? This is what I have whipped up.

Stir-fried organic brocolli with diced chicken breast, fresh gingko, Enoki mushrooms, sweet peas, garlic, big onions and MSG-free soya sauce. We had this dish on Monday.

What Drives Me Bonkers

My 2 gals are really angelic and charming when they are anywhere outside the house. The minute they step foot back home, they automatically transform into little monsters and could instantaneously drive me bonkers with their nonsense. Here’s a list of the top 10 things that my gals do that really drive me bonkers and send fire up my head:

1) When I need to get some work done and they refuse to nap or sleep despite all my coaxing, threats, bribes and whipping.

2) When the gals start giving me excuses like they want to poo poo, wee wee, drink water or complain of body itch or pain, etc after the lights are turned off at night. What irritates me most is after I have put on my hand lotion and worn my socks after applying cracked heel lotion on my feet and all ready to plonk my battered body on the bed for a good night’s sleep, my 2 brats start demanding that they want to poo poo or wee wee and drink water, both gals demanding at the same time, one request after the other.

3) When they whine and whimper for no real reason. The sounds of whining drive me nuts.

4) When they refuse to eat their proper meals but demand to eat crackers or junk food that daddy has bought.

5) When one of the gals want to watch Barney and the other demands to watch Hi-5 and then they start crying and fighting when I say no one gets to watch anything or when I accede to one of the gals’ request, the other whose demand is not met throws herself into a fits of rage.

6) When they mess up my computer or shut down my computer when I am in the midst of working.

7) When they tear their expensive story books or wreck their toys.

8) When they turn complete deaf to my warnings and continue in their forbidden acts and stunts.

9) When they cry till they puke and make a complete mess on the bed and on the floor just before bedtime, when I am always drop dead tired and sleepy.

10) When Alycia demands to wear the same old outfit (which is her Pumpkin Patch or Mothercare jeans and pink Benetton t-shirt) each time we go out though she’s got a wardrobe filled with pretty dresses and refuses to wear most of the dresses. Alycia is a tad tomboyish when it comes to her choice of clothes as she prefers jeans and t-shirts to dresses and skirts.

Now what drives you crazy?
