Ivy tagged me. I still owe one tag after this (I think so). It’s been like almost 9 years….I only know I got to know Hubby at this age in poly. Hehe..

How the tag works :

Go to Pop Culture site.
Pick the year you turn 18 years old.
Get yourself nostalgic over the songs that year.
Write something about how those songs affected you.
Pass it on to 5 more friends.

1. I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing – Aerosmith
2. The Cup of Life – Ricky Martin
3. I Want You Back – N*Sync
4. From This Moment On – Shania Twain
5. My Heart Will Go On – Celine Dion
6. This Is How We Party – S.O.A.P.
7. Because Of You – 98 Degrees (98ยฐ)

Actually I prefer more mandarin pops and canto pops. I guess most girls will like 4 an 5…even till now, I do sing in KTV.

These songs didn;t affect me much leh, so nothing much to write on. But at this age, I visited our then favourite favourite clubbing haunts. Hubby never fails to fetch me after my crazy parties. He’ll either join us, or he’ll fetch me when we call it a night.

Some people I met that year changed my life, some decisions I made that year changed my future too…I really can’t remember much about the year whereby I am 18. I know “Saving Private Ryan” opened a new chapter in my life (Hubby should know what I mean).

I also remember how Brian got jealous when other guys get near me and trying to woo me! Hahah…

Sweet Talks

Last night, Brian had to work sunrise (work 24 hours). Little girl seems to understand, and one good thing about Daddy not back for the night is…we turned in at 10pm.

Hubby likes to watch TV programmes, read papers and do some nitty gritty stuff. Lights off will most likely be 11pm or even later.

This conversation took place last night:

F: Darling, Mommy carry you to your bed and hold your hand to sleep can?
E: I want (to) sleep with Mommy…Daddy work work, Ethyl sleep with Mommy can?
F: Sure! Get on the bed and light off…
E: Ok, Ethyl switch off light…soooo bright!
F: Ok, be careful dear!
E: Mommy, you working tomorrow?
F: Yes my dear, it’s Thursday and I will be home late because I have an evening event. Will you be a good girl?
E: Ethyl good girl….Mommy, you not scared?
F: Scared of what?
E: Scared dark…you come back good night already, not scared got “kar-kar”?
F: don’t worry dear…I will be fine ๐Ÿ™‚ Good girls are blessed.
E: Ok, Mommy can sleep already? Ethyl sooo tired already, I want (to) sleep already.
F: Alright, good night Ethyl.
E: Good night Mommy.

I may have missed some parts of our conversation. But this is the sweetest part.

Brian came back some weeks ago and told me a piece of “good news”. He said, their company is cutting on OT and he’ll have more time for us. I told him, I bear no hope cos this is the don’t know how many times he said such a thing. Everytime, he’ll support by saying, they are serious and this will definitely be carried out.

I will not whine for this, as I have an equally full schedule till november. Being a WOHM, I need to strike a balance between work and family. I guess his schedule will bother me if I am a SAHM. That’s what happened when I was one!

Help or Hindrance?

Mom is in the kitchen busy cooking my dinner. Little girl was just as busy. She stood herself on the stool and poured water in a glass. Before I could tell her to be careful, she said “PoPo, I pour water for you…careful”. Mom is thrilled by her actions and of course feels touched. I felt the same too! Ethyl is simply too sweet to miss!

Adjusting Ourselves

I’m bitten by guilt bugs once again. I am getting busier, so is Brian. He will be busy from now till December. For me, there’ll be certain weeks whereby I will be less busy.

Lesser time for Ethyl means lesser time for Hubby too. Brian and I had a mutual agreement that during busy times like this, we need to try and spend as much time as we can with Ethyl. She should not be deprived of our attention. No way we are going to let this happen.

We are all trying our best. Our console is our understanding babe is independent, and we have a supporting Mom. Another important item on our agenda is to try and give Ethyl and our family another baby. Given our busy schedules, I wonder if we can “make” it.

Nevertheless, we will not hurry things and take things as they come.

Eileen and YL tagged me, I better fulfill this!

These are the rules: Each player of this game starts out by giving 6 weird things about themselves. People who get tagged need to write in a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state the rules clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. After you do that, leave them each a comment letting them know you tagged them and to read your blog!

Hereโ€™s mine: ~

1. I love to smell Ethyl’s toes. Sometimes I will also nibble them, and suck them! Crazy me right? But her toes are too irresistable!!!

2. I love chilly! BUT…I eat fried carrot cake (black ones) w/o chillie, with extra dark sauce. I eat Yong Tau foo dry w/o chilly, I eat chee cheong fun w/o chilly and I eat laksa with lotsa chilly!!

3. I canโ€™t sleep without my bolster and blanket. On warm nights, I would cover my body in our quilt and let out my legs. Ethyl’s like me in this aspect! ๐Ÿ™‚

4. I have a weird hobby. I like the corners of my pillows! I must “knead” the corners to sleep and sometimes Ethyl would snatch mine from me and claim that’s hers, and mimics me!!!

5. I love to kiss Hubby when he’s sleeping! So sweet!

6. I can eat pasta, noodles and congee every meal! I can survive w/o RICE!!!

Hmm…most people are tagged leh…I’ll stop here!

Creativity

Ethyl learned and absorb new ideas through songs and rhymes easily. I came up with the idea once again, and sang to her while we were playing.

I used the rhythm and sang her shapes, animals, spelling of words, things around us etc. She picks up real fast! She sang the same to us! She’ll have her own version, came up with her words and this makes me really glad.

We really got to think out of the box and let these creativity juices flow! I am really happy to spend my day with dear Ethyl! ๐Ÿ™‚
