As a follow-up to my earlier post, it's been 4 days that DH was home alone with little Eryn. I'm even more amazed than before.
He happily claimed that he waited for Eryn to poo in the afternoon, before taking her out to jalan-jalan in Tesco. Eryn is always so happy when she's out to Tesco coz she loves seeing those colourful stuffs on the shelves, happy because she's got new "toys" to grab, even though for a very short moment.
I seriously do wonder who DH can bring Eryn out alone, while pushing the cart and does grocery shopping!! Most of the time, he wouldn't really be bothered with the kids, always busy with his work, coming home just to sit and relax in front of the TV, read his papers, play with the kids for a while and practically do nothing much. These 4 days have really opened my eyes to (what Max calls) the daddy-day-care services.
He happily announces, without a single stress on his face that he cooked, washed, swept and mopped the floor and did what most housewives did without a single problem. I've sometimes seen him to be quite a lazy, messy and "lun-chun" person. Well, he still is sometimes.
He even knows how to carry Eryn in the DIY sling! The one that is used by Indonesians to carry their babies. And the best part is that he does it better than me and he demonstrated it to me.
Somehow, I noticed that my kids are particularly obedient with daddy around. Brendan will eat his food, take his medicine, swallow his vitamins without any fussiness when it comes to daddy feeding him. With me, or his grandparents, he'll run here, run there, whine and ask for nen-nen, etc.. sigh! I'm jealous...
