Things they say....part 2

The girls are back and they house is full of life again. No more lonely car rides. I am once again, entertained with their chattering.

They love playing, Spot the Petrol station. Everytime we pass a petrol station, they will shout 'Petrol station, I saw first' and we pass another one, and it goes on and on. Both cannot look at each other's side or they will be subject to some hair pulling or pinching incidents.

The other day, they were playing grown up and Harvynna told Rowena:

H: I be the mummy, you be the daddy
Rowie: No, I be mummy
H: No, you be the daddy, because daddy does nothing, just sit down, so very easy for you
Rowie: Ok


Rowena's favourite song now is:

5 little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell down and bumped his head
Mama called the dr
No more monkeys jumping on the bed (I think she missed out a line here, but I cant figure what it is)

She sings this while jumping at the edge of the bed.

Things they say...

It's the school holidays now and the girls are not here. They have gone on their holiday while I have mine here!!! The house and the daily car rides to work are so quiet. But I am kind of enjoying the quiet time. I think they too, need a break from me - have been so stressed out and screaming at them a lot!! Can't wait for them to be back and hear they things they say.

Rowena's famous lines:

Mummy's office is in Koto Sarasara (2 guesses where that is)

I pinch you, i bite you, i push you (agressive girl)

Dont give Awa (Harvynna) cake ok, she fatty girl

Surrprise, say please (when she wants something)

Tomorrow you buy for me this ok, dont give Awa

Haha, mummy washing your soap off (when I bathe Harvynna)

I dont want this one, very ugly (when she does not get what she wants)

Harvynna's famous lines:

Please, please dont bring Rowena!

I going to ask Aunty Kuldeep to bring me to my Beaconhouse (when I tell her I am going to change her school next year)

Mummy, just say this, just bluff her ok. (when she does not want Rowena to find out something)

I accidently ate the last cake (when she brought 3 cakes home, one for me, 2 for her, and daddy asked her why she did not bring for him)

Can you just feel the sisterly love!!

I bought them one of those sets where you can bathe the baby from Toy's R Us and they love it. They can play with it for hours. They are into dolls right now. Anyone knows where I can get a walking doll?

I had enough!

Gosh, its been more than a month since my last post. So much has happenned during this time. Firstly, I was sick for about 3 weeks, down with viral fever, took a dose of antibiotics that was too strong, ended up with mouth ulcers and a gum infection. The girls were sick at the same time, both down with mouth ulcers and high fever. I still had to go to work, despite being as sick as a dog as we had a major event last weekend, and I was working late everyday. So now, I feel so drained, tired and seriously need a break, till I found out we have to do another event in 5 weeks time. Great!

At the same time, I feel a bit pissed with some people. While talking to someone today, I told him ' Who needs enemies, when you have relatives!' They either impose themselves on you by telling you what to do, without offering any help whatsoever, or they pretend to be concerned about you, while slowly stabbing you in the back or sabotaging you. Thats another story altogether.

On to happier news, Harvynna went for her 2nd field trip today to the High 5 bread factory. She has been so excited about this for weeks. The last time they went on their field trip, they had lunch at McDonalds.

She is really shooting up - I suddenly notice her pants and dresses getting too short. More clothes for Rowena then! Rowena is the reverse, she does not seem to be growing tall. She lost so much of weight when she was sick, and seems to have got shorter as well.

Rowena is one big chatter box now, she sings many nursery rhymes and speaks as well (well, almost) as Harvynna. She loves to dance and make all kinds of facial expressions. She really seems to think that she goes to school, so when I ask her what do you learn in school, she will reply 'ABC, dance, songs, bubbles and 8,9,10)

Anyway, am off to another meeting now (story of my life!)
