It is going to be a week we are back in Penang and life with 2 kids is definitely different! Can I say… I ‘lost’ my life? My days are filled with work and more work. There are just so much washing and cleaning to do everyday. I can hardly find much ‘ME’ time now. The only ‘ME’ time I have is when after I sent Darrius off to kindy (good thing the kindy has extended their hours from 8am to 12noon) and Glennedine is still sleeping which I normally used to check emails and read some news while having my breakfast. Then I am off to do washing endless loads of laundry… gosh! I wonder why out of a sudden there are so much laundry to do!
After being a laundry mama, I’m off to cleaning the rooms or the house and if Glenn wakes up, I’ll try to potty her and if there’s nothing, then I’ll bathe her. Play with her for a while and if she dozed off, then I’ll go prepare lunch before going to fetch Darrius. Luckily MIL is helping to keep an eye on Glenn while I go fetch Darrius.
Once Darrius is home, the house will turn a little more chaotic with his screams and Glenn’s cries. Before cooking, I’ll bathe Darrius first. This boy refused to eat by himself now so this busy mama has to feed him before sending him to his afternoon nap. Normally I will try to bring Glenn along and nap together.
By around 4pm, I’ll have to prepare dinner before PiggyBeng comes home. Dinner now will be mostly easy steam dishes only as I don’t have the luxury experimenting with new recipes or dishes. PiggyBeng will help to feed and bathe Darrius if I’m busy with Glenn.
Before bed time (which has moved forward from 10pm to 9pm) I’ll have to get Glenn ready. We tried to have some family time in the room before we light off.
The night will be never ending with constant feedings as our little princess has turned quite cranky at night since we came back. She will refused to sleep until passed midnight and will wake up once or twice before both PiggyBeng and myself have to wake up at 6am.
And the routine starts again!
I’m so sleep deprived! 😐
