I survived!


I survived the skool holiday...yeah! I have to put my sanity on the line to look after the girls although I am at home everyday. On skooldays, Aisyah would be too tired to be bored and just laze around and doing small activities after her lunch. It's just me and Sarah in the mornings which is pretty a breeze for me.


But during the skool holidays, the girls would be up from 7am onwards, with 1-2 short naps for Sarah (and just-me-and-Aisyah-time or if she's on the computer, then it's me time). And of course, there are the inevitable "I boring lah, Ibuuuuuuu." and "I don't want to friend you har!". It's as if we, the parents, have an obligation to keep the kids entertained 24/7 which is impossible. Having a daily activity/menu plan helps for me as I'm muddle-headed.


The girls would be showered and fed by 9am. Lunchtime is at about 12pm with a light snack and some homework time before that. A secret to keeping the girls happy is to treat them with lots of snacks...fruit, fairy sandwiches, scoops of Ben&Jerry, etc. It keeps them busy too while I cook and clean everything up. Lunchtime is also tvtime because there's SuperWhy, Hi5, Animal Mechanicals and YoGabbaGabba during that period.


It's activity time after that with just something simple like fingerpainting or blowing bubbles at the corridor. The good thing about having siblings is that they can entertain each other after a certain age (for a while only though before the lil one ventures off to climb somewhere) for me to rush to the loo, perform my solat or have a quick lunch. It is good for them to just have time playing and interacting. I will sprinkle a bit of playground time or bring them out to NTUC for some quick grocery-shopping if the weather is good. Well, such activities did help to minimise any brain damage during a month with the girls and I'm already looking forward for the upcoming skool holiday.
