Few weeks ago, while we were standing outside a restaurant deciding what to eat, this conversation took place:
Faythe: Mommy, how come the mouth is under the eyes and it’s not elsewhere?
Mommy: *geez, what a question*. Well, God created the mouth under the eyes so that when you try to scoop the food into your mouth, you can do it correctly. See, like this. (did some action to show her my cock eyes while pretending to scoop food into my mouth). If God put your mouth at the back of the head, then you can’t feed yourself properly right .
Faythe: *giggles*..oh I know, then you can ask your fren to feed you. She sit behind you, then she can help to feed you.
Mommy: Yeah, then you all can sit in circles, and feed each other right
Faythe: hahaha yes..it’ll be fun
Mommy: Yeap. And I think that’s a good idea. Then you won’t have to see what is being fed to you and just chew and swallow it. Instead of now, you will look at the food and complain it’s vegetables, bla bla bla..
Faythe: Kept quiet..(kena backfire LOL)
Sometimes, I really wonder what is going on in their mind. I don’t recall I was like this when I was at her age.
Faythe loves to make origami by referring to the origami book we’ve bought for them. And there’s this particular origami that makes puppet animal (just the animal face) that she has remembered the steps and do not need to refer to the book anymore. She’s been folding many of these to give to her friend, and while she was at it, this was Faythe & Vyktore’s conversation:
Faythe: Mommy, I’m going to make 2 more origami puppet for my friends.
Mommy: OK (while I was folding clothes)
Vyktore: I also want jie jie
Faythe: OK..what animal you want? Cat dog or panda?
Vyktore: I don’t want, I want dinosaur
Faythe: But this one cannot make dinosaur. I can only make cat dog or panda.
Mommy: Maybe rabbit?
Vyktore: I don’t want…I want dinosaur (sounded impatient)
Faythe: That might be difficult
Mommy: Hmm maybe pig
Faythe: Ah..can also. Vyktore you want pig?
Vyktore: No!! I want dinosaur. I want carnivore animal ONLY. I want T-Rex
Faythe: Cat is also carnivore you know. Cat eat fish
I couldn’t help but burst into laughter when Faythe answered him back so quickly and she was quick enough to turn the situation back. She really tickled me with her wittiness. Yes, cat eats fish, I totally forgot about that.
Vyktore got upset and stood up from the dining table and wanted to catch Faythe because he refuse to accept that cat is a carnivore.
Recently I started going to gym as I’ve put on some weight over the cold winter and I could feel my pants as if it’s gonna burst any sooner O.o.
The good thing about here is whenever I go to gym, I can bring both my kids along and let them play at the playground in the Clubhouse, which is just next to the gym. Hence I don’t need to leave them at home alone (No No) or hire a caretaker to take care of them for that short 30mins workout. And they love to go there anyway. It’s a place where they might bump into their schoolmate.
While taking the escalator to the gym, this was our conversation and suggestion from Faythe:
Mommy: We need to go gym more often, you see I’m fat already. *Pointing my finger to the spare tyre*
Faythe: It’s OK Mommy. If you wanna be thin, just follow what I do. Eat what I eat. Don’t eat what I don’t eat. Then you will be thin like me.
If I do as she says, I think I’ll be constipated and dried up in no time OR I’ll be double of my size cause her diet mainly consist of pasta/spaghetti with cheese (fatttening), pizzas (oo, also fattening), less fruits & veg (that’s where the constipation comes) and all the chocolates that she can ever eat (sure deadmeat if I indulge in this).
Seems like I don’t have much choice but to go gym more often. Lets hope I can shed off those extra kgs easily.
