It is only since yesterday night he could sleep better after taking the flu medicine. I know flu bugs are inevitable in every childhood, but can’t it just spare me a few moments of recovery after the last episode? Arrgh…..I kept on asking myself, what is the use of being chubby and cute while they not blessed with good health?
When I got pregnant with QQ, my mum advised me to drink the Ensure Milk from Abbott (she even bought it for me). It is highly nutritious and expensive soy milk (even suitable for be used as meal replacement). With the high nutrition, not sure if it is fattening (I hope I will not need to take diet pills after consuming this. However I could not tolerate the taste of soy at my first pregnancy.
A tin of 1000g cost about RM55. My mum and her friends who drank this milk during their pregnancy swears by it. I drank a lot when I carried my twin boys. Now the boys are blessed with fair and smooth skin :)
This year her school organised one during their CNY celebration. I was there too, taking videos with my camcorder with one hand while another hand closing my son’s ear!
It is indeed difficult to bring the Bumbo Boys out to crowded area like that without hubby. I even had to reach school 30mins earlier, just to make sure I get a good parking right in front of the school so that I would not have to go round in the housing area looking for a space.

Therefore our arrangement obstacles are:
* 3 kids have to be separated into their own beds
* All side must be railed so that they do not roll down
Even small matter like that makes my parenting journey so challenging. Not easy when you have twins yeah...

I do still feel remorse over the incident which happened 2 days ago. I still feel bad and ashamed over how an adult with a right mind can behave in this way. I keep on reminding myself that I am lucky that I still able to get up in the next morning, with all my children safe beside me. GOD creates them and put them in my hands so that I could love and nourish them. HE has put his trust on me to take care of them and raise them, to love them and to cherish them. After all, these little helpless children have not done anything wrong. All they want is mummy's warm hug for comfort and milk when they feels hungry. All they need is mummy's attention and love.
I learn my lesson. I do, I really do.
