Harvynna is back!



After 2 ½ weeks, little Ms Harvynna is back home. We left her in Melaka after the Deeparaya holidays. She requested to stay on. When we left, she said’ I not going to KL. I staying with Nana and Nanima’ and seemed very contented on staying on.

She also needed a break, I think after all the routined daily activities of going to the babysitter in the morning, coming home and rushing off to the babysitter again, going through the traffic jam and the stress of living in KL. In Melaka, she had it going for her with daily trips to the playground, zoo, pasar malam, dinners. She has a more happening life than me!

The house was sooooo quiet without Harvynna and tidy. No books, toys and clothes all over the floor. But it just did not seem normal. Even my drive to and from the babysitter was so quiet as she was not there to talk to me, or sing our songs. Even Rowena missed her sister and cried the whole journey. Normally, she would look at Harvynna, listening to her conversation with me.

Now that she is back, everything is back to normal and she seems so grown up. Even her hair seems longer!! She has got even better at answering back. The other day, when we were in the room, she asked me if I wanted the air conditioning and I said ‘No’. Then later, I switched it on and she looked at me, ‘Just now you said you don’t want!!’ Today, on the way to work, we saw a dirty looking lorry and she said,’Yuckity yucks!’ I asked her who is Yuckity Yucks? And she said ‘daddy because he does not bathe properly’ like the elephant in the zoo.

Harvynna has got this bad habit of having 2 sweets everyday. I am trying to kick this habit off. So when she asked me for it yesterday, I said ‘No’. There are no more sweets in the house and I have no money to buy. Then she says, ‘Let me see your purse’ and of course I was caught red handed.

She’s really grown up now as she can reason with us and justify things well. Sigh! My little girl is growing up or as she says, 'I am mummy’s princess. Rowena is mummy’s cutie'. She got that right!

Absence does makes the heart grow fonder, ya? Lol. No matter what, we love them to bits so you cannot help but miss herlah. Her statement "I am mummy’s princess. Rowena is mummy’s cutie" shows how smart she is :)
