My mornings these days.


This morning, Clarissa woke up in her room, alone. Instead of crying frantically, she walked very quickly to the study/baby room to look for me.

"Mummy! I wake up on my own, Yaya not there but I didnt cry!" She announced proudly.

I could tell from her harried footsteps that she was in fact a little scared, but she overcame it and did the brave thing.

So I said well done, you are so brave now. And she beamed.

I asked her to wake her Daddy up because it was already 7am, and she did.

I heard her repeat the same thing to her Daddy, and then her Yaya. 😊

She then climbed up the bed to lie down beside me.

"Why Meimei cannot sleep on her own huh?" She asked, a little too loudly and Meimei stirred.

Knowing how sensitive she can be, I told her Meimei had a hard time sleeping so I had to carry her for a whìle, and asked her to speak a little more softly.

She got upset with me anyway. πŸ˜‚

And hence this picture ☝️.
Is in fact not of bliss, but of Jiejie turning away because she is upset. πŸ˜‚

Fortunately it was a short tantrum.
She was back to normal after finishing her milk.

Meimei on the other hand kept pooping last night?

I had to change her diaper every 3 hours.. But still I kept smelling poop.

Only realised this morning that there was a little poop caught on her swaddle. πŸ’©πŸ™ŠπŸ˜‚

Can't see too clearly with only the touchlight from my phone + lack of sleep, though the good news is that I still have my sense of smell. πŸ˜‚

She seemed to have a blocked nose?!
Was fidgeting so much after her 530am feed so I human-mattressed her from 6ish so she could sleep properly.

πŸ‘¦: Dear did you come in to pump at night?

πŸ‘§: The 3am pump? Yes ah I did.

πŸ‘¦: Wah I completely had no idea.

πŸ‘§: Good, that means you slept well.

πŸ‘¦ gave πŸ‘§ the side eye. πŸ˜’

But it's good what!
At least one or two of us have to sleep well to take care of the family?

The hubs has gone back to work today so it's just me and the helper.
My stomach hurts a little just thinking about the 6pm chaos later. πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚
