Diaper-Free During Naptime

Alycia has been diaper-free during her afternoon nap for over 1 month already.  I don’t even have to wake her up half way through her nap to bring her to the potty to pee.  She can now control and hold her pee until she wakes up, which is a 2-3 hour nap.  However at times when she’s cranky and tired, she would demand to put on a diaper.  I know I can start training her to go diaperless too at night but lazy me just keep wanting to procrastinate this training.  Maybe I should wait until next year when she’s more ready.

My Little Social Butterfly

My sil from Hong Kong came back yesterday.  We were to have dinner at hubby’s aunty’s house nearby.  As Sherilyn was still having high fever with a temperature of 39.3 degrees Celsius, we decided that only Alycia gets to go and Sherilyn should stay home.  Sherilyn was also crying throughout dinner as the ulcer in her throat was hurting her badly.  Though my maid had cooked her oats, she didn’t eat a single spoonful of it.  She was just munching on cool Japanese cucumbers, some beans soup and cool water.  She loved the cool water and kept gulping it down.  It really hurt my heart to see her suffer.

When daddy was about to leave the house with Alycia to koo poh’s (hubby’s aunty) house, Sherilyn cried and said she wanted to go too.  There’s no way she’s going to be left alone at home.   She cried so pathetically that daddy and mummy felt sorry for her.  So we dressed her up and off she went with us.  At koo poh’s house, no one believed she has high fever with a big ulcer in her throat as our little Miss Social Butterfly was so lively and energetic to see her her koo pohs and little aunty (hubby’s cousin who’s only 4 years old).   She was jumping and hopping about and talking to everyone.  Her personality is the exact opposite of Alycia.

How Do You Prevent Cats From Coming To Your House To Poo?

This is the picture of my backyard.  Something must be really attractive with this wall coz the stray cats keep coming to our backyard to pee and poo and they stink like hell!  We’ve tried spraying the area with aerosol and my mil even suggested putting mineral water bottles filled with water on top of  the water but that did not prevent the cats from coming back. Why mineral water bottles?   She was told that when the cats see their own reflection on the mineral water bottle, they will get a scare but I don’t think this trick worked on those tough stray cats.

Does anyone have a better idea of keeping those stray cats at bay?

Early Gifts From Santarina

My eldest sil from Hong Kong is here again. As expected, she brought everyone goodies. For the gals, she never fails to bring them lots of souvenirs from HK Disneyland. This time, she got them a girl’s vanity bag filled with hair doodles, hair scrunchies, hair brush, mirror and cute clips, among others.  Alycia also got what she wanted – a pair of hipster jeans from Zara kids that’s just so hip and cool – 3/4 and with a slit on both sides.  My mil also got the gals some very pretty socks and panties with cute Disney and Forever Friends cartoon prints on them. 

As for me, I got a big box of dried birds’ nest!  Shall snap pix of these things and post them in my blog when I’m free.

Daddy, I Want To Go Too Please!

When daddy brought Alycia to the paed’s office on Saturday, he didn’t bring Sherilyn along as we didn’t want her to breathe in virus from sick kids. Ms Social Butterfly was very upset that she couldn’t tag along and cried for an hour until daddy came back with Alycia. 

For one hour, she lay on the floor next to the front door and wailed out “dadddeee..eee….eee….eeee……  daaddeee….eee….eee……eeeee, open the door, I want to go”  just like an Indian drama queen wailing away in one of those sob stories Indian movie.  She looked so pathetic but hilarious at the same time coz she really sounded like an Indian drama queen, LOL!

My maid had to comfort her and fed her watermelon whilst waiting for daddy and cheh cheh to come home.

Was Your Wedding A Dream Wedding?

Was your wedding a dream wedding or do you wish it turned out way better than you had expected?  My wedding wasn’t my dream wedding. I had wanted many things for my wedding 7 years ago but because hubby and I ran out of budget, we couldn’t make our wedding my dream wedding. 

If I could just plan my wedding all over again, I would definitely cut out the elaborate Chinese wedding dinner that cost us more than RM20k.  Instead, I would just have a small wedding reception and spend the money on more wedding jewellery and a honeymoon to a destination of our choice. 

As we ran out of budget, hubby didn’t buy me much wedding jewellery. Even our wedding band was a simple and plain gold wedding ring. I had wanted some designer jewellery and gold jewellery like the ones from AstleyClarke.com but we just couldn’t afford them. Well, maybe during our 10th wedding anniversary, we would renew our wedding wows and this time, I’ll make sure hubby gets me my designer jewellery and a romantic honeymoon too!
