My mum's leaving for home tomorrow.

My mum is leaving for her kampung tomorrow afternoon after staying with us in KL for the past 9 months, after my 2 months maternity leaves.

Brendan has been exceptionally close to his poh-poh (my mum) as he sleeps with my mum for the past 30+months (except during my maternity leave after delivering Brendan and during my weekend trips to my hometown before I delivered Eryn).

My mum did a fabulous job in taking care of Brendan and Eryn and it's really going to be hard for us all, esp. Brendan, not having his darling poh-poh around.

To him, poh-poh was the best cos she takes him out for his morning stroll, takes him to buy newspaper, cared for him, played with him, taking him out to the park downstairs of our apartment almost every evening and made lots of new friends. I've never known any of my neighbours until my mum moved in with us temporary. She made so many friends with children of Brendan's age and automatically, I too made friends with them.

For the past 1-2 weeks, Brendan had been crying wanting to go back to Kluang, saying "poh-poh goes back Kluang, Brendan goes back Kluang!" He'll scream until we changed topic. He even woke up once screaming "Brendan goes back Kluang! BRENDAN goes back KLUANG!". We knew that it's going to be difficult for him to let poh-poh leave for her home.

Brendan's home is with his mummy & daddy but deep down in his heart, his love for his poh-poh (and kong-kong too!) will stay embedded forever....

    No money loh....

    With prices of most things shooting up, we try not to spend unnecessarily on unnecessary stuffs to avoid unnecessary wants, such as branded goods, toys (most are hand-me-downs), going to expensive restaurants, etc.

    Poh-poh (my mum) is a very thrifty person and every morning, when she takes Brendan out to buy newspaper from the cafetaria, she'll tell Brendan "You need money to buy newspaper. No money, no newspaper". Brendan will grasp the RM1.20 very tightly in his little tiny fist and proceed to pay the auntie at the counter.

    When Brendan doesn't finish his milk, poh-poh will say "Finish your milk, afterwards mummy no money buy milk". Sometimes he does, sometimes he doesn't.

    When Brendan doesn't finish his food, poh-poh goes "Finish your food, afterwards no money mum-mum. You see that boy on TV or not? No money, no food to eat loh. Thin Thin Sick Sick" (referring to one news feature of an African boy who was malnourished).

    This doesn't happen all the time, unless Brendan is extermely degil (stubborn).

    Brendan sometimes has this habit of climbing on my lap while I'm having my dinner. So last night, he took my spoon and ate the rice from my plate. Then he continued pressing the rice and giggling at the rice splattering all over the plate.

    "Brendan, mummy is hungry and mummy wants to eat. Please get down", I said to Brendan.

    "Clang clang clang...... Brendan cooking", Brendan replied.

    Some grains of rice was on the table and the floor and this got me a little worked up.

    I told him in a stern voice, "Brendan, see what you did?! Don't play and put the fork and spoon back on the plate! Afterwards mummy no money buy rice, Brendan eat what?!"

    Brendan replied in that sweet little childish voice with an innocent look, "Eat tahi lor....!"

    Gosh..... I really had to burst out laughing. sigh!

    Daddy is back!

    Daddy arrived from Frankfurt early this morning when everyone was still asleep. I heard the room door opening and squint my eyes to see Daddy peeping into the room. I continued lying on the bed, watching Eryn who’s still deep in her sleep, like I always do, every morning before I take my shower.

    After a while, Eryn tossed and turned and opened her eyelids and saw Daddy. She cried immediately and could have wondered why there was a strange face looking at her. I then carried her and calm ed her down. She then stared at daddy and started to smile and gurgle. Not long after, Brendan woke up and clinged at daddy’s leg, telling daddy tons of stories which sounded like rubbish to us.

    The children didn’t really asked for daddy while he was away cos they were preoccupied with their own stuffs. Now that daddy is back, I’m sure they’re gonna bug him, climb over him, kacau and play with him.

    *Yes!* Mummy can rest for a while these few nights…

    While daddy was in Germany

    While daddy was away,
    Brendan gave everyone a scare
    The spots were red, the sign was there
    The fever came, the body bare

    While daddy was away,
    Eryn too had mild fever
    Though not so severe
    Mummy still had her fear

    While daddy was away,
    Eryn’s teeth sprouted out
    Giggling in a voice so loud
    Baring one gigi in her mouth

    While daddy was away,
    We all went to a family day party
    We saw a clown, he was so funny
    We went back home and felt so weary.

    While daddy was away,
    Mummy took us all to Smart Kids
    With just 2 hands she took the lead
    Our mummy darling, her advice we heed

    While daddy was away,
    So much have happened
    We played, we learn,
    Daddy don’t you miss us darling children?
