Baby’s First Day Of Potty Training

You will be amazed to know that I spend around RM160 just on disposable diapers for Baby every month. I have been procrastinating potty training her as I have been terribly busy with my online store. Alycia and Sherilyn were potty trained when they were 2 years old. I know Baby is highly trainable too but I am just too lazy to get out from my comfort zone and break my back while potty training her. But now, all of a sudden, I feel the big pinch on our wallets. So today, I decided that I MUST potty train Baby. Before I took the diaper off her butt, I talked to her …. face to face, seriously and gently. I told her that she has to stop wearing diapers. I told her that she has to help daddy and mummy save money. I told her that the money we save can be used to buy…. ICE CREAM for her haha! Since she loves going to school and absolutely yearns learning ballet, I have been telling her that if she wants to go to school and learn ballet, she cannot wear diapers anymore. She seems matured enough to understand everything and I managed to knock sense into her head. So far she has been A-ok wearing a panty…. though she would go to the potty every 5 minutes initially… and I have been breaking my back washing potty. The potty is placed in the living room for her convenience to ease herself anytime.

I shall see how the 2nd day of potty training goes tomorrow. Wish us luck!!

Daddy’s Princess Always

We were about to leave the house for Mid Valley Megamall. My princess wannabe insisted that she had to wear her Princess clogs to match her dress. She even dressed herself to the nines by wearing her favorite necklace that Joshua’s Mummy (the girls’ former Sunday School teacher) bought. She dressed herself up like she were going for a ball LOL! We warned her that she will surely complain of pain when blisters sprout out from her toes but this hard-headed girl turned a deaf ear. Sure enough, when we were all walking from Mid Valley Megamall to the Gardens, she complained that her feet hurt. I told her ‘serves you right for not listening to mummy’ but she always has a white knight to run to for saviour. Her white knight gave her a piggy ride all the way to TGIF where we had lunch, despite him having a bad back.

We were at Bata to get Alycia a pair of jogging shoes and my princess wannabe took the opportunity to try on all the ‘klick klock’ sandals. I told her that she has over 10 pairs of unworn shoes at home and that she cannot buy a pair of new shoes…. but as usual, she persuaded her white knight to get the the klick klock sandas for her. Her prince on white knight agreed without even looking at the price, citing reason that her feet hurt!!! I could only fold my arms and shake my head and roll my eyes that this prince on white knight is spoiling the princess rotten…. again!

Baby was also choosing her favorite shoes and shortlisted a few pairs but we had to say no to her as she has too many hand-me-downs at home.

And Alycia cannot stand her sister for being so vain…. she will never ever wear that pair of klick klock sandals, this pretty girl of mine who has quite a conservative taste in fashion and dislikes everything girlish and pink , sigh…..

Treasure Found

I have been extremely busy working on the computer for the past few days. I had left Baby to play alone yesterday and all of a sudden, I realized that the house was very quiet. Silence is often a sign of trouble brewing. I quickly left my computer and went to look for her. There she was sitting on the floor in my room with the drawers opened. She was ransacking my drawers and my things were all strewn on the floor. As I was putting my things back into the drawers, I found some old treasure— 2 gold rings and a bracelet! They were the first gold jewelry that my man gave me about 18 years ago. I had thoughts of selling the gold jewelry as I hardly wear gold jewelry now. They are probably worth two to three times more than they were 18 years ago as the price of gold has been steadily rising over the years. Gold is a very valuable asset and a safe haven bet. If you have the extra cash and want to invest in something that’s safe and profitable, buying gold from the United States Gold Bureau is a wise choice.
