Nowadays, whenever friends or relatives saw me and the kids, the first thing they will say was "Wah, your kids so grown up ! You 'senang' already."
In fact, it is true that I'm more 'senang' as they are capable to do many things on their own. They are more independent and doesn't need much help from me. Sometimes, they are just like angels, so lovable, so adorable.
However, when 'wars' between them began, it was really a huge headache! Our house have never ending dramas everyday.
Yesterday, once we reached home after work, we found XJ sleeping on the sofa. MIL said she did not take her nap plus she was being provoked by YX, cried till sleep. We asked what happened and YX quickly defended himself by saying mei mei snatched a book with him.
When we probed further, we found that it was XJ kindy's book which they were both fighting for. YX then said he saw XJ using colour pencils drawing the last page of her kindy's book. Instead of being an elder brother to advise her not to do so, YX joined her to draw. XJ did not allowed her brother to draw her book, thus, the fights began.
Worst, the book was torn with it's skin dropped out which leads XJ to cry profusely until she fell asleep.
I think MIL is immuned to their daily 'war' and she leaves to us to sort out with the kids.
This is a separate story which I wanted to jot down for remembrance. This morning, I don't know whether to laugh or to be angry. As usual, we will dropped YX at school before going to work. So, I told YX to take his school bags and goes to the car. Instead of moving, he stood at the doorway watching cartoon! XJ was awake and was watching cartoon in the living room at that time.
Tired of shouting at him, I took my belongings and walked towards the car. I started the ignition, open the gate and shut my car door ! YX suddenly realized I was leaving without him and shouted for me to wait for him. One hand holding his school bags and another hand holding 1 side of his shoe, he rushed towards the car with tears in his eyes. He had since wore another side of his shoe earlier.
No need to shout, no need to scold but makes me wanna laugh. Action really speaks louder than words !
