Short week and a full long weekend

This bout of illness has been persistent.

Yang was alright for about a week but last weekend after a cup of milo and a chocolate cupcake, he started coughing again. Had to fetch him back from school after nap time on Monday. That night, Yu's fever suddenly came back too. So I decided to work from home on Tuesday just in case... And indeed, I had to go get Yang barely an hour after I sent him in!

He said hello to "catty" on our way back

It's catty, doggy, birdie... And he tends to shout BIRDIE when he sees one!

His hair is so long but he refuses to have it cut!

I managed to work while he entertained himself with the TV and iPad. Even persuaded him to nap on my bed. So happy that he fell asleep very quickly.

Somehow rolled into his fave pose

So tiny in the bed!

Luckily Yu managed to stay fever free. But whenever Yang came home early, we couldn't hear the end of it from Kai!! He also wanted to stay at home *.* Actually Yang wanted to stay in school *.* Sighs...

The boys decided to play trolls.... Couldn't get a snap of Kai..

There's a child care centre closure day this week, on Friday. Don't know why I'm always so sleepy when I'm with the kids - I had to take a 20-minute nap just before lunch time! When I woke, Kai was starting lunch and I had to persuade Yang to have his. Yang wanted me to feed him so N rocked Yu to sleep. Surprisingly, Yang fell sleep on the sofa while watching TV so I carried him in and sent Kai in after him. I had some 40 min of peace!

My baby taking his longest nap of the day

Headed out after nap time. Decided to take public transport coz Kai and Yang loved it. When I told Sito at night, he asked me how we managed them coz the greater part of the journey was underground on the Circle Line. It was then that we realised that the boys had outgrown that horrible monkey phase where they ran down the length of the train - not even the carriage ok, the train! - or demanded to hang on to the top hand rails. Granted, Yang was still asking for the hand rails but he could take no for an answer most times. Sometimes they would hang around the poles but they were generally well behaved and mostly SEATED. Gosh. Now Sito says we could bring them out more. Yup, until Yu refuses to be worn and wants to run, I suppose? :p

Bought some groceries at AMK Hub before going to find Mother. Happened that MZ was at home, and YQ came back around dinner time. YQ invited us to his wedding banquet tasting session on Kai's birthday but (1) weekday, and (2) he forgot there were too many of us!

Play time!

Hamburger transformer!

Can't remember the last time they played with my old toys. This time, they were able to entertain themselves very well. I like this growing up thing :p

Distracted by the TV sometimes

Yu had something to play with too!

Kai was very sociable, greeting his elders and even speaking some simple Mandarin! I was pleasantly surprised :)

Maybe coz he got his first birthday hongbao of the year?

Yang picked this out himself coz it was a happy face :)

Cute baby in his towel

Same cute baby goofing about in the train

So we ventured out to Vivocity. We weren't disappointed with the kids' behaviour on the train - just a bit of goofing around by Yang. Mostly, they were well behaved. Phew!

Kai and Mama

And Yu had a haircut!

His brothers' first few haircuts were generally captured on photos. Not his, poor thing... The line was rather long and Yang refused to be bought by a kiddy ride. So Sito and N brought Kai and Yang away to play while I waited with Yu. By the time we were done, the rest were seated at Kin Gary. Should have taken a picture of the boys - Yang and Yu were in high chairs next to each other.

Yu had some oats and biscuits for dinner :)

Next, we went to Toys R Us to get birthday presents for Kai and Yang. And since then, Kai had asked us umpteen times why Yang could open his earlier than him, why he couldn't open his present on the same day as Yang, argh!

What's with the face?!

Playing with what Kai eventually chose for himself

This morning, we didn't have any special activity though Kai asked a couple of times if we were going somewhere before Mum's place. So after the morning movie, I got them painting! Tried to teach Kai about primary and secondary colours but not successful...

Kai and his ziplock painting

Yang prefers finger painting

Had to carry this baby facing outwards for the first time so that I could cut his nails easily!

Bubbles at Mum's void deck

They love play doh, which I loved as a kid but hate as a mama :p

Kai made cookies for me! :)

Yang made ice cream for me! But they were hot...

Yu took a short nap and then was cranky so I brought him for a walk. I had a drink and bought some cosmetics - ya, just gotta spend money... He fell asleep towards the end of the walk so I stayed around in the train station enjoying the cool air, checking out the new Cheers store which is more equipped than the Buzz but is still a convenience store...

Just had a horrible stomachache. Yang advised me to put on some oil. I obliged after my third trip. But the oil didn't help leh - I wonder if I should keep using on the kids *.* Also experienced what Sito tends to get - a kid at the toilet door asking for the potty. Not the most pleasant thing when I was inside with a horrible pain!
