Because the kids are sick (yes, again!) since mid last week - with the usual, runny nose and cough. :( So not a good idea to bring them out.
Needless to say, we didn't go out during the weekend. I'm starting to get very edgy as I've been cooped up in the house for a few weeks already. Well, fetching XY back from kindy or buying lunch on the way doesn't count as "going out" okay. Hubby wanted to bring me out but I didn't know where to go although I'd really like to get out of the house. Shopping malls would be crowded. Sick kids better stay away from crowded places. In the end, I decided to stay in as the kids were coughing badly. Worried they'll get worse if they go out in the hot weather.
The 1-week school holiday has started. But there's no plan for any short getaway.
Because PaPa's extremely busy at work.
How am I going to keep the 2 kids occupied for one whole week? So that they don't drive me crazy? Last week, I took out the push car and a box of old toys from the store room. Oh, I didn't clear the store room (which is on our to-do list for the longest time), I just moved the boxes and things around and took out what I wanted. :p
They've been playing with their 'new' toys ever since. And as usual, snatching the toys is part of the fun. When no one's playing with the toy, it's lying there untouched. Once one of them starts playing with it, the other will come and snatch it. These are the wonderful beings we call kids. hahaha
It's a good idea to put some toys away so they see a lesser amount of toys. After a few months, exchange the current batch with the ones that were put away and the kids thought they've got new toys. Good trick, eh?
Both of them can't get enough of the push car. I got this from the Anakku points redemption a few years ago. Although it's been kept in the store room for more than 2 years, I'm surprised the lights and music still work. Didi likes to leave the lights on. If I switch them off when he's not playing with it, he'll quickly go and switch them on again. Funny boy.

XY also likes to play with it. Although she's way too big for the little car, she sits on it and pushes it around with her long legs. Funny girl. (hahaha I have a pair of funny kids!) She likes to pretend she's delivering newspaper. Zoomed in front of me and shouted, "Newspapers! Newspapers!" while handing me the Winnie & friends mat (free gift from MamyPoko). Then zoomed over to where didi was playing, and did the same thing. And you know where she kept the newspapers? She sat on them! :D

I hope they'll recover fully quickly so that I can bring them for water play at the swimming pool or BIL's house during the week. They've just bought a bouncing splashing outdoor toy. Making them stay at home everyday is a big torture to them... and to ME too!
