It was one of the saddest day in any mother’s life when one of her little ones have to stop living. Fats, through all her pain, had to be put down. I sobbed for days. The memories I have of her, and the most happiest, is when my LO met up with her in Singapore in August and loved playing with her – brushing her fur, sitting next to her basket and feeding her cat biscuits. Fats, I’ll miss you but I’m so happy that you’ve met the LO. Know that I love you and will always love you. Big kisses my brave girl.
1. Toy car – Z: “Mummy. Broken” Giving me the car without its tyre. M: “Yes, it’s broken. Sorry, darling.” Z: “Oh, nevermind.”
Nevermind? You rock, girl.
2. Looking at the hair dryer box – Z: “Mummy dry hair.”
3. Bedtime – Z lying in cot: “Mummy sit down.” so I can be next to her as she falls asleep.
4. Brown Bear, Brown bear What do you see? Z:”I see mummy…at me.” Z: “I see me.” You are cupcake gorgeous.
5. The day before you turn 21 months. M: Singing ‘Teddy Bear’ songs. Z: “More teddy bear songs.” when I was done. We did this 3 times!
6. That same day. Stacking up the blocks with animal faces. Block 9 has a polar bear. Z runs to get her Polar Bear book, points to picture and says, “Same”. Then, points to Christmas card from Uncle Adam and Aunty Cathy with 2 polar bears and says, “Same”. You amaze me. You are different everyday.
Christmas Cheer December 25, 2011
Nothing like a Mummy’s excitement at Christmas. It’s your 2nd and boy, oh, boy do you understand pressies. However, unwrapping them can get quite tedious and dull for a 20-month-old so we had to stop, with a few more to go under the tree. The Christmas tree – now, you helped decorate that one. Putting some lovely ribbons on it was your idea 🙂 You’ve been so good about not touching the tree. In fact, you’ve been brilliant about not meddling with too many of the bits and pieces of furniture in the house. I know that I’ll look forward to many more Christmases with you. You’ve rejuvenated me at Christmas.
