Suspiciously Quiet

XY's school project for the month of March is bread. She's to paste some pictures of bread (bun, cake, chapati, etc) onto an A4 paper. She can decorate it if she wants to. She was supposed to hand it up on the last day of the month but I totally forgot about it. So I told her teacher she'll bring the project paper to school the next day. As it was a last minute work, I couldn't find many relevant pictures to cut out from (unwanted) magazines and brochures. So I printed some from the internet.

~ XY's project paper ~

She applied glue and stuck the pictures by herself. She wrote all the words while I spelt them out letter by letter. And she even decorated it with flowers and hearts (yeah... the 3 triangular thingy are hearts hehehe).

And what was didi doing while I was busy helping jie jie?

Making a big mess...

~ almost half a box of tissues were pulled out ~

I smacked his palms a few times coz he's been warned before not to play with tissue papers. I thought he was playing with some toys alone. Kakak was busy in the kitchen cleaning up and washing dishes. Gosh... when the kids are exceptionally quiet, you'd better see where they are and what they're doing. Otherwise, you'd be 'pleasantly' surprised. :-| So I had to fold all the tissues that were thrown on the floor. Wastage was minimal as he only tore a few pieces of them. Luckily I have just finished a box of tissue so I cut out the top and put in the folded tissues.

When they are quiet, they are either up to something or they are sleepy. Jie Jie's project paper is filled with love!!

My kids also did that in the car. Both of them sit at back of the baby car sit and when they are so quiet at the back... the next surprised is the tissue paper is all around at the back of the car.
