Who do you think said that? Me to the kids? Wrong. My hubby
said that to me, while I am outside preparing dinner.

I know it is no good to shout. All parenting magazines and books
say that, but can you imagine, with kids doing dangerous stunts
all the time, fighting all the time, how many times can I leave
the task I am doing and speak to them softly infront of them?
Somemore, its no use speaking softly to them if I am not near
enough, cos they will be playing or fighting so loudly that nothing
will be heard.

Started with hubby, then the boy got it, then me.
Whenever hubby get sick and it spreads, he will blame himself.
Who wants to spread germs right? But as a parent, there is
nothing much you can do, cos you still got to stay in the same
house, accept different rooms.

Sigh, my boy, fever 6 days, now only recovering. Seen doctor
twice, got 4 days MC in total. Me still flu-ing away too ..

Quite proud of myself. Whenever family members get ill,
they tend to sleep more but me? I still got to run the
household, from daily laundry to meals. Can you imagine,
when I told my mother that I may buy dinner from outside
on the day I had fever, she asked me "You sick till you cant
cook?". *sigh* So, my kids get simple home cook dishes.
I did get a 45minutes nap on the first day of fever, but I
wake up regularly to monitor my boy's fever leh.

Anyway  I seldom fall sick, and actually nothing to proud of
since what I did are the normal SAHM duties which all SAHM
are capable or better than I am.

Sometimes I wonder, if I am too sick to cook, who would then
cook for my kids who are sick too (and shd avoid outside food) ...

House keeping

Making space for kids' stuff, so trying to dispose the old
magazines. They are my treasures leh, but got to go lah, else
I really have no more place to put the books that I just took
over from hubby's cousin.

Those are home and decor magazines .. some of them are
almost 10 years old (dated 1999!) so can you see what a
person I am? After this lot, I have to clear my magazines
that I bought from HK. Those are fashion magazines, so
definitely useless now, but I kept them cos I bought those on
my first trip to Hong Kong and Hong Kong is one of my
favourite country.

I think I really have to do more frequent housekeeping, else
I will end up like my mother, a whole room of junks
(or treasures, depending on how I see it).
