Its a really, really, really relaxing holiday for me. Excellent! Sleep as much as I want, do as much (or as little) as I want and…I’m sure its mostly the same for all of us non-malays who are just ‘lepaking’.
I wish I could say that I did something great for mankind (no matter how small) but spending time with Jadey poo and balancing the pregnancy tired-ness was order of the week. So yes, I was abit selfish this week, with respect to mankind, that is. Jade and I went out shopping rather aimlessly (what a luxury) for once and I was actually off the PC for a total of 4 days in a row! (Not including the faithful ipad, of course). While hubby is away the whole week (boo!) I was secretly using his ipad2. Oh so smooth!
Jade is growing so fast…she wrote on the doodle board for the first time yesterday (ok, so a couple of squiggy lines) – I guess I could call that respectfully as ‘drawing’ instead. What a talented little girl God has blessed me with!! HEHEHE! She is only 13 mths but turning into a real copy cat. She laughs when everyone around is laughing (talk about peer pressure) and learns things quite fast. I think this is the end of my ‘parental holiday’ and now we have to watch what we say and do around her.
Its a good thing I became a Christian and omitted all bad words and foul language from my vocab for the past couple of years. I never was very foul mouthed to start with but here and there, I’d let something ‘slip’ and not feel guilty about it.
Jade’s doing abit of a slow-mo and she’s not ‘walking’ on her own yet. She can do a gallant cross hurdle diagonally across her playpen without holding on to the sides (but she doesnt know it). So she’s got abit of a confidence problem with walking on her own – maybe its got to do with mastering her balancing skills.
Being a mum is really rewarding (minus the sleepness nights and badddd back). til the next Jadey milestone…
