Nen nennnn...

JJ wakes me up this morning by doing
the unthinkable – dream suckling!!! LOL!

🍼🍼🍼


The mouth and tongue was going chut-chut-chut, man. With sound effect summore. Haha. I tried to video it but it was too dark in the bedroom and he was lying on my chest at a weird angle so all attempts at recording the moment failed. Haih. Anyway, he hasn't done that in the longest time la. Not since he self-weaned-as-psychoed-to at 2y3m5d last Christmas! Guess the baby in him didn't as fully bid bye-bye to the nen-nen like we thought it did. Once a nen-nen addict, always a nen-nen addict, eh? 😝

Because They're Worth It

"Mommy? You're the best mommy in the world."

– JZ, 14 July 2017


-------


JZ said that to me tonight with his right arm around my belly, his face in my face, and his left hand on my cheek. Out of the blue and for no reason at all as I was putting him to bed. :') It's moments like this that make the madness of mothering two boys 21+ months apart, all worth it. 


-------


My dearest firstborn, JZ...

I love how you always love so unabashedly.
If the world was filled with more people like you,
it would be a wonderful place to be in.

Love always,
Mommy

Look Outside

The kids were tired and borderline fussy on the way home from their 6-hours without us. JZ kept asking to play with our phones while JJ was whining over goodness knows what. So, in an effort to keep some measure of sanity within our car, I put the distraction method into play.


Pam Song: Look outside! What do you see??

JJ: *looks out and pulls a sien face* Nothing. 

Pam Song: Nothing? Look again! Don't you see anything? What about the trees? And the sky... And the stars... What about all that?? Nothing!? 

JJ: *repeats* Nothing. *sighs* The dinosaurs are sleeping.


LOL!!! Uh... okay.

Where Do You Put The -ING?

During a rare enforced afternoon nap in Penang before an evening of fun in the pool with the kids' cousins, I just couldn't get JJ to lie down and knock off. JZ wasn't sleepy either but at least he was keeping mum about it and wasn't rolling around the bed like JJ was. So I pulled out my super stern Mommy Voice + Death Stare combo and barked...


Pam Song: YOU BETTER LIE DOWN AND SLEEP BEFORE I CALL AH PEK AND CANCEL YOUR SWIMMING WITH KOR KOR AND JIE JIE. 

JJ: *grumble grumble then mutters under his breath* I'm lie dow-ing. 


😳😳😳

Lying down la. Lie dow-ing.

πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚


This budak ah. LOL. England not powderful enough when it comes to -ing placements yet. Gotta work on that more with him someday. LOL.
