i'm still playing catch up. Journalling reads:
It’s now the March school holidays, and the kids are home for one week. Thankfully, Daddy takes Monday and Tuesday off work to do fun things with them, and also give Mummy some time to work on Neko-chan’s birthday slideshow. We had planned to go kite-flying on Monday morning, but there is absolutely no wind and the kite wouldn’t go up, not even for one minute. But of course, our kite-flying ability is about on par with Charlie Brown’s...
As the week goes on, both kids enjoy playing with Lego and Duplo blocks. Joyjoy likes to hold one Duplo figurine in each hand and have them interact with each other, while Neko-chan prefers to build ‘racing cars’ for the figurines, then crash them against each other to see which vehicle is sturdier. Besides that, Neko-chan spends much of the week at the dining table, designing and cutting out Valentine hearts and Easter eggs for Mummy. He also spends a lot of time making Angry Birds posters for his own birthday party!
On Saturday, we hop across to Singapore to see if we can pick up any special Angry Birds party items, only to end up ordering them online. But it’s not a wasted trip as Daddy and Mummy get to enjoy a rare date night while Waipo watches the kids. At cell group meeting the next day, we take a break from the Christian Life series to play a get-to-know-you game, guessing one another’s secret or unfulfilled dreams or ambitions. It’s an afternoon of laughs as we discover no less than three would-be superheroes, one (16th Century) sailor explorer, one future mother of six, and even one First Lady wannabe.
