When Grandma is not around.......

It has been a week already that my mom went for a vacation in HK with my youngest sis. And, I guess, both my kids are used to it already that from time to time, grandma will be away either for vacation or helping my another sis looking after her baby as well as looking after the maid.

When mom is not around, I'm return back as 'pitiful' Cinderella (when she hasn't meet her prince charming). I have to wake up earlier around 6am, to prepare my kids stuff - daycare bag, milk bottle, towel, clothes, uniform, etc....and if the night before, I didn't washed their milk bottle then, I have to do it in early morning. Or put our laundry into washing machine or put into dryer, etc.....the tasks just can't finished at all.

Life without my mom or any helper is not fun at all, but, like my kids, I get used to it already. Of course, if I have a helper, it really ease my burden and I can relax myself a bit(as an extra bonus).

Last night, as I busy preparing some simple dishes for our dinner, this is what my kids are doing. It is so quiet (from the kitchen), and I thought what they are doing?? Ha,ha...watching television in good manner......and, give Momi a peace of mind to do my cooking.
And, the outcome: Simple fried veggies (cabbage + carrot), and steam fish (Iz and Dadi favourite).Can say, when kids grow up, it is really getting easier to babysit them compare to when they are young. Don't you agree with me?

Definitely it is easy to handle when the kids are older. Can even ask them to help out too!

When your mom comes back, you must thank her morelah. Ha ha...it's true that we are fortunate to have our moms around to help out. It takes away a lot of the stress.

heya, jo. you are just so hands-on at home when you're not travelling... agree that it's easier when kids are bigger, but a different set of 'challenge' just seems to come up all the time ;D
