Trying.

Thursday, 22 July 2010

There have been so many instances lately where I found myself at a loss to know what to do/say/how to react.

Brandon, clearly hearing what I tell him NOT to do, giving me one kind of look before deliberately disobeying.

Andrea toppling over into the boot of the Prado and mildly bruising her left eye on some part of our stroller.

Reuben’s amazing stamina at crying some nights.

All these and more make me want to cry at times. Getting angry takes up so much energy, and I have very little extra to dish out these days.

But of course, there are other things that make everything better. Like getting hugs and kisses out of the blue from both the kids. Or Reuben taking his cue to beam away when I smile at him.

Balance. I guess the reason why this is achieved by stirring up emotions on either extreme of the spectrum is to keep life interesting.

Wow! 3 kids, they are all keeping you busy. I bet tiresome too huh?

I’ve not been visiting lately and when I did couple of days ago, your web (kinder soaps) has popped up a message that your page is a potential “attack”. It happened twice. Wondering if you get the same message when you go to your web?

Hey Ai Shiang! How’ve you been? Yeah something tried to compromise WordPress and it affected Windows users - so I didn’t notice it at all as I’m running a Mac OS. So sorry about that. Hubby’s fixed it now.

The kids are quite a challenge to keep up with, yes, but I enjoy being with them. Wouldn’t have it any other way! Every day they’re surprising us with what they say and do. They teach us a lot.
