Chinese New Year

We are still quite knackered from the time difference since we got back. The poor dude has to go to work today. The kids are tired too so they are both taking an unusually long arvo nap.

Anyway the purpose of this trip back is to celebrate CNY with the family. It was a time for Darien and I to catch up with our respective relos and friends too. Overall, we had a swell time. The hubbi got to play ball and hang out with his friends. I too got to meet up with my gals.. which i was so so happy to do.

We realized that we had several groups from friends from different stages of our lives and we are blessed to be surrounded by all these great people.

The trip was a lil exhausting too due to the decision to bring a SINGLE pram back home to use. Simply becos our buggy would be too big for the aisles and lifts in SG. Especially with the terrible attitudes that Singaporeans have. They simply won't give way to the pram... they would instead try to worm their way ahead of it. *tsk tsk*

Anyway only one kid could sit in the pram and that was usually the lil one. Becos Kayden has found his feet, he was quite happy to wander around the malls. But that was a major headache too cos he was just going his own way, and not considering our agenda at all.

We were lucky and grateful to have a fair bit of babysitters around and that is the beauty about having family around. It frees Darien and I to have some time to ourselves.

Chinese New Year was fun. The husband and I got to see the extended family and show them the boys. They totally adored them. Kayden was really whingey about people carrying him but he loved having the older kids around. He wanted to be like them.

Baby J mucking around with Grandpa. Can you imagine he's turning six months only?

I told my hubbi how wonderful I think he is. He is a generous soul who has no issues helping people out and does things for both his family and mine. He would go out of his way to drive people around and pick them up. He also left a great impression with my relos and they would just kept talking to him. He never once whinged about having to go to the extra mile for me. It's really nice to see the rewards of that by the bonds that my boys have with both families. And I love that he does it for both sides... afterall, we are parents and we would like to set an example for our kids to follow in treating their elders.

He also made plans for us to have some personal activities and was quite the romantic, despite my practicality that almost killed him. *sorry*

I love ya hunni. Good trip back. ya?
