No words

Err not sure if they are cuddling or wrestling. πŸ˜‚

These two have been leaving me rather speechless these days. Thankfully it’s the funny kind of speechless. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†

Culprit No. 1: Opening the drawer and taking out all her clothes.

That smug look on her face. 😏

We tried to stop her but she was very persistent and would keep going back to do the same thing all over againl.

She cried when her Yaya sat in front of the drawers to block her.

Mummy 1, Allie 0.

I didn’t have to buy drawer locks with Clarissa. The only few things I bought to child-proof our place were the safety gate and cushion foam for table corners.

And look at where she puts her foot on the walker!

She’d automatically do this whenever she’s trying to reach something.

Yesterday she’d even put one foot up and walked in the mini-cooper by using the other foot. πŸ™„

I have never seen her sister, whom I thought was cheeky enough, do any of these before.

Me: “Allie, put your foot down please!”

Culprit No. 1: (Proceeds to stick her foot further out and smiles for my camera with a cheeky face)

Yep, and new trick: Pulling off her socks while seated in the walker.

Relax, Mummy! It’s just my foot!

Culprit No. 2: Jiejie.

Her #toddlerlogic and #clarissawisdom really surprise me sometimes.

Last night she was drinking Yakult in our bedroom so I asked her to please drink the Yakult outside.

She asked why; her tone wasn’t to challenge but to genuinely find out why.

“Because you might spill it,” I explained.

“Huh, but drink outside also might spill what,” she said casually while continuing to sip her Yakult from the straw.

The hubs heard our conversation and laughed, “Well, she’s not wrong..”


Why did I even ask her to do that in the first place? πŸ˜‚

For the longest time after lights-out, I had to hold her hand and tell her a story before she’d close her eyes to sleep.

In the recent weeks, I’ve managed to do away with the story telling bit because we always read a ton of books before bedtime anyway and it’s very tiring to think of stories to tell / tell the same one over and over again when all the lights are out (and I want to sleep too).

So I’ve been telling her, mummy is very tired, so you choose: hands and no story or story and no hands. #assholeparent

She always chose to hold hands so I haven’t been telling the lights-out stories for a while now.

A few nights ago, after we turned off the lights, she tried her luck, “No story tonight, Mummy?”

I said no, Mummy is tired.

She made an interesting observation:

“Mummy, you are very tired for very long already, hor?”


Spot on, that’s exactly what it is.

I said, “Err, yes?” and she simply turned and went to sleep.


My kids.
