I heard the kids' voices upstair. So I went up and was greeted by both . Their smiles were so sweet and I hugged them by saying "I Love You". They replied the same. I hug and tell them 'I Love You' everyday. They did the same.
But my smile on the face faded very fast.
As I stepped into the bedroom, I thought I went into the wrong room ! I almost couldn't recognized my bedroom. I thought Typhoon Megi or the Indonesia Tsunami visited my room. I saw hubby was at the computer table enjoying his computer games (somethings which he can only do on Sunday) and he was not bothered at all by the mess created by the kids!
I asked baby XJ who did it and I almost laugh out when she answered "PAPA" loud and clear.
YX rushed to interrupt and said mei mei did the mess. Then, mei mei started to point at koko. Finally, hubby paused his game for a while and said "I've already told both kids to clean up the mess before you comes back, but they did not" and gave me a smile before continuing his game.
Toys were everywhere on the floor. Books were everywhere on the floor. Puzzles were all dismantled and scattered everywhere on the floor. Even my bed were not spared as the bedsheet almost being pulled out. Pens and papers were everywhere too!
At that moment, I felt like screaming but no voice came out. I felt like canning them but can I cane hubby too? I felt like forcing hubby to clean up all the mess and shut down his computer by switching off the main switch but glad that I did not. I wish I have magic and with just a point, everything will be arranged neatly again.
**Breath in....breath out ** again.
I left the room and took my dinner. Glad that I have a great MIL who cooks dinner for all of us and once we reached home after work, dinner were readily served on the table.
After I ate, I fed the kids and wash the dishes.
I bath the kids and changed them into their pyjamas. I took bath and did the laundry.
Finally, back into the room, I get the kids to clear up all the mess and of course I loose my patience. I shouted at them asking them to speed up. I felt so pressured as the clock were ticking away. I wanted YX to sleep early as he has school the next morning but I want them both to clear up the mess rather than me doing it myself. Both kids were enjoying 'playing' while picking up their toys. It took them almost 30 minutes to clear up all the mess with their slow motion tactic.
Once both slept, the room were so peaceful. By looking at their sleeping faces, I felt so glad that I did not cane them or slap their butt. I'm glad I have both of them in my life.
Hubby ? I did not talk to him that night. I went to bed right after I did my stuffs and he knew I was angry. The next day, he got the kids to clear up their mess before I came back and he even told me proudly that the kids did their job with his intructions.
