back to the grind

CNy ended last Sunday. It was a pretty hectic but fun 2 weeks. Hubby worked a total of 3 days throughout thanks largely to the many public holidays we were accorded. Of course, there was also the not-so fun part where BIL and family had the flu. My FIL included, he couldn't breathe very well and all. Luckily, there was no need for an emergency medical assistance from the docs. Thankfully, everyone recovered. BIL and family have gone back home and FIL is as good as new.

Now, we've been back to our old routine for the past couple of days. Ash resumed her playgroup session on Monday. She was happy. So am I actually because the kids are more settled. You'll know what I mean when you have kids -- the more unpredictable they are, the less you enjoy your days. With kids around, you have this desperate need to know what's coming up next...and next...and next..

Oh and I bumped into an old couple friend the other day. They also have 2 kids, 2 boys to be exact. The mom looked fab while I, urm...lets just say no one's gonna hand me the 'hot mama' award anytime soon. And so, you know, we went off on how when you have kids, you suddenly have the ability to move faster and your reflexes tend to be top notch as well (if it wasn't the case mine).

It is really amazing how having kids can really change you. If you were one who couldn't care about anything in the world, you miraculously do now. And, if you are to leave this earth now (I know...choy choy choy!), it'll be ok because nothing else matters except your kids. Strange but true.

Plus, I am reflecting on today's joy -- the girls having fun together. Finally. Still a little rusty but little monster inc sure is getting there. I give them another 6 months or so and they'll be able to play (and fight) together. We'll see..

You are so right-- kids change everything. I sometimes meet young couples who won't have children; and I don't care what they do, big deal, right? But they are usually such selfish people. Not all, but usually. Children (selfish little beasts that they are!) require so much of their parents, children do change everything... and what's weird is that we parents would give up everything for them at the drop of a hat! It in indeed a mystery. ;)
