We came here two years ago before Norrah! So we make a trip here for Norrah! 😆
And guess what, after we arrived, we forgot to bring the clothing bag! 🙄🙄 but we have the diaper bag in the car – which consists of one set of their clothes each. Fortunately, there was also another towel in it. Both Noelle and Nikki were already in swim wear with their dresses on. Just that hubby and I don’t have the extra clothes to change! Norrah was without swim suit but she was ok to play water without it.
They enjoyed playing sand a lot. Then they brave themselves to get near to the waterfall (not very deep actually). Noelle was more excited of getting near and make numerous attempts to get as near as possible. Ok, looking at her attempts -I asked hubby ‘can I just get wet and sit inside the car wet?’ 🤭🤣😛 So, I went down and took Noelle to the waterfall-ing spot, very painful ‘drops’ of water 💦 That makes her satisfied too; and then easier to make her go home (Nikki and Norrah volunteered to get out already, and changed).
I went home in wet clothes and undies 🤭🤣 – had one raincoat in the diaper bag, so I laid on the car seat; covered myself with the one and only wet towel! That makes today memorable for me (and hopefully my kids)!
And that’s how we celebrate this year’s Mother’s Day…weekend as usual!
Bentos 🍱 for 5 are easier than for one ☝️ 😂😂

Compared to the past years, Noelle is more aware of the ‘meaning’ of Mother’s Day! One of the reasons is because she reads the calendar and the calendar marks it! 🤭😂 Last year, she had her pre-school teacher helped her with a card. This year – primary school – (I think) she was given ‘hint’/reminder by the papa 🙄🙄 – to make a card (‘I think’ – because the papa showed her thumbs up🙄🙄 when she gave me the card this morning 🤣).
Actually, she made it on Wednesday after her nap – because she was busy with something and then complaining Norrah made her re-draw (Norrah scribbled her work). Then I peeped what she did 🤭😂. I sort of saw ‘Happy Mo…’🤭 and acted dunno. She didn’t even asked me any spelling (which she did when she made me CNY card earlier in the year) 😂😂 After drawing, I thought she was going to give me but she kept inside her drawer.🙄🙄 I didn’t bother and we went swimming.
Then, on Friday when I received the flower delivery – she finally bocor her own ‘secret’ – “Mama, I actually draw a Mother’s Day card for you already. But I am giving you on Sunday!” 😮😮😮😮😆😆😆😆 Nevertheless, her ability to keep ‘secret’ slightly improved! 😂😂😂😂
Thank you Noelle！😘😘I don’t ask for more – but for you to be a better and happy person.
I was rushing the whole morning – from grocery shopping, cutting and deboning raw chicken, laundry, nursing (running around with the two), unpacking groceries – just in time to fetch Noelle back.
On the way to pick Noelle, in a rush mode, received a call! 🙄🙄 Normal hours, usually I will just ignore the call – but it is school hour – always afraid that the school or teacher will call me – so picked up the call while driving. Then the guy was speaking ‘one word, one word’ 😒😒🙄🙄 – I nearly wanted to hang up until he said ‘send flowers’ 😮😮😮🤭🤭🤭 So, I asked him to leave it at the guard house!
Ok lor, thank you hubby for the flowers – Happy early Mother’s Day to myself!
