We made the best of our past 11 days together!

This week’s read has been Dr Seuss’ series

To wrap up Noelle’s Semester 1 break –

Actually….I only found out that Noelle will be on a 11 day off school days one week before it started! 😅 I was under the assumption that she does not have a school holiday break as public schools. This was partly true. She just had one day extended Hari Raya break. Her semester one break was just one week. Fortunately, I did check the schedule that the principal gave us earlier in the year – or else we end up sending her to school as usual! 😂 (actually won’t happen because as the week approaching Raya, the teachers were starting to remind parents and plant the idea of school closure for a week on their students🙄)

I, personally, was over thrilled! I was figuring out how to make use of the best of our 11 days together! (Actually the 24/7 days alone with three kiddos were merely 5 days minusing the public holidays, weekends and one papa’s off day!)

There are many things that I planned and we did. Some of them include

1. A car wash

2. A drive thru to Mcdonald

3. Baking a father’s day cake

4. Picnic at FRIM (with papa)

5. Picnic at TTDI (with papa)

6. Movie day: Incredible 2 (with papa)

7. Painting ceramic arts

8. Play date with EZ

9. Baking peanut butter, honey and chocolate chips tarts

10. Making pizza

11. Swimming

12. Housekeeping

13. Home playground

14. Trap and un-trap eggs (with basket and sticks)

15. Cook own lunch – rice cooker rice

16. Vegetables stamping

17. Watercolour painting

18. Chill out day- mcd, Mr DIY and Village Grocer

19. Completed our parent-child school project

20. Painting key chains

21. Baking chocolate chips oats cookies

22. Making DIY fireworks rings

23. Making DIY art explosion book

24. A visit to fisherman village (Crab Island with papa)

25. Plant roselle

26. Bake cheese bread sticks

27. Bake donuts

While most of our activities are within Klang Valley and confined at home – we had the best time together! Spending quality time and doing meaningful activities on a daily basis – is far better off than any particular special day in the year! For example, we don’t have to wait for our birthdays to enjoy it! We don’t have to wait for an overseas trip. (This is something which we need to keep reminding ourselves)!

I am or probably we are looking forward to Noelle’s year-end school off days again to spend ‘full time’ together! (At this point of time, I still don’t understand why certain mummies dread school holidays! 🤔🙄)

In the meanwhile, back to rush hours on Monday plus….the blues! 😫

Today our big Jeh Jeh is in ‘depresso’ mode!! 🙄🙄

Initially, she was eating her lunch happily until she spotted the calendar in the eatery place. Then she started mumbling how many school days to how many off days. Her appetite then dwindle off! Next she wanted me to feed and ate less than usual (though it could be her losing appetite as she had slight fever two days ago).

She doesn’t really look happy throughout our outing today! And after her nap, she was crying and looking for me (which hasn’t happen for long). She wanted me to hug her and her eyes were aiming at the calendar which she marked all the off days with colours. I know…I know…I told her that off days are over, the next off days will come again. I even promised her that I would send her to school tomorrow morning. She nodded!

We did baking before she had her dinner. She is fine after that. Hopefully no drama tomorrow! 🙄
