I wouldn’t ‘thank’ my hubby for taking EL yesterday when I was down. Well, we work as a team and the kids are ‘ours’. Actually I wasn’t expecting that he will take off as he was bogged down with work. I even told him to go to work and prepared food for the day in the kitchen while he was having his breakfast.
Ultimately, he decided to take off when he saw me lying on one bed wrapping myself with blanket (it actually started the night before – I think I got chilled) while the three were on the other bed – after he came out of the toilet! Seriously, fortunately he did – I don’t know how to survive the day if he wasn’t around.
I was in the room sleeping almost whole day – with all the screaming, crying, ding-dong outside the living room 😂 (I couldn’t be bothered) – with occasional Norrah and Nikki sent in for nen nen! Wow, I think I slept the most in this whole year – this was THE best rest/me time probably!
When I went out to the living room to sit (even today), Noelle would ask ‘mama you no more shiver oredi?’ And Nikki ‘mama no fever’ (while touching my forehead) – at those moments, I feel so blessed that they cared! 🙂
When you are a stay at home mum (sahm) with no helper, you are the ‘pillar’ of the home! And, your hubby has to ‘reserve’ some of the emergency leaves when the wife is down (at least the hubby doesn’t have to EL when the kids are sick cos mama is around)! Having said that, it is so important to take good care of our own health!
Today I am back on my duty as 24/7 mama! I asked Noelle if she enjoys papa taking care of them! She said YES! And when I asked if she prefers mama or papa to take care of them (🤔 I know such comparisons shouldn’t be made😝) and her answer was ‘PAPA’! 😒😒😒😒😒😒😒
P/S: Thanks to the ladies who messaged me personally and showed concern; I think you ladies are used to seeing my daily feeds/my girls!🙄 but sincerely, arigatou 😊😊
