My Valentine's Day

Boring! Yes... that is because my dearest husband was away on reservist. Although he came back as early as 3p.m. but he was dead tired. So for the rest of the day I was facing a rather grouchy man. So much for Valentine's Day.

At least we did not stay home and get into each other's nerves. Ashlyn had art lesson so that gave us an excuse to get out of the house. So Valentine's Day dinner was... MacDonalds.

Due to budget, there was no gift for each other. No flowers too. However, I managed to do this for him and for the two princesses.

A Bad Fall

On Saturady morninng (3 Feb 07), Ashlyn tripped over her own shoes and fell. It was a very bad fall.

She fell right beside me and at the moment I wanted to help her up and consoled her but I could not. I was helpless. In my arms was Averlyn and hence there was no way I could pick Ashlyn up at all. My heart hurt everytime I think of it. I realised that it is not easy to be a parent to more than one kid. I miss the time I had with Ashlyn only. I missed the closeness that we had. Now, she will look for her Daddy more than me.

I cannot blame her. Averlyn is a very sticky baby and she sticks to me. Everytime Ashlyn looks at me, Averlyn will be in my arms. I can feel her lost too.

Despite this, Ashlyn has been a great sister to Averlyn. She will help me watch over her while I get some stuff done around the house. She enjoys giving her little sister hugs and kisses. It warms me everytime she does that.

On top of all these, Ashlyn will comfort me when I breakdown after a long and tiring time with Averlyn. She will always say," Mummy, babies are like that. You cannot get angry. Don't cry, okay? I call Daddy?"
