To laugh or to pull my hair out?

During dinner today (now actually)

Kieran: Mummy! I want some more pasta! (yelled from the living room to the kitchen)
Me: Bring your bowl in, I'll give you some more! (yelled back from kitchen to living room)
Me: Kieran! Bring your bowl in if you want some more! (more yelling)
Me: Kieran! Kieran!
Me: KIERAN! (short and sharp)

Kieran (reluctantly walking with his bowl towards the kitchen:
No. School never do like that. Teachers walk round and round (gesturing with his hands) and we like that (put up his hands). We never bring bowl (to kitchen)!

I don't fault the school, that's their routine. They can't have all the little kiddos running to the kitchen can they? So what did I tell this smart little boy?

Kieran, I am not teacher. I am Mummy. You bring your bowl to the kitchen. :P

My little boy

Kieran has been such a big boy for awhile that sometimes we don't quite see the little boy side of him. We were at Borders on Saturday and he was in his goofy mood. Also there was a balloon sculpture of an F1 car there and he was happy to take a picture with it. He made funny faces while I got a few snaps.

I thought he looked like Justin Bieber in this photo!! :p

"sidewalk" drawing

Had a little fun this morning drawing on the newly cemented floor just outside our house.

See? I'm so proud of Kieran's drawing abilities. He sure had a lot of fun drawing on such a huge canvas!!

This was the completed drawing. It was a rocket with an astronaut standing next to it. He even drew the platforms (white) that the astronaut would use to climb aboard. The orange scribbles were the fire when the jet took off and the pink was the structure that held up the rocket. Creative huh? He also spelt out both his and Kiefer's name at the end. :)

Some more kid's logic..

K1: Can you buy tickets to watch (the F1 races)?
me: I've got no money, the tickets are very expensive. Do you have money?
K1: then i have to find money. I can find money. I can find money from YOU! :P

Anxiety regression?

Kieran wet his bed for the last 2 nights. Since he's been off diapers a year ago, he probably only wet his bed at night like 5 times. And for the longest time, he's been holding up well. I was thinking about it and realized that it may have been due to all the stress in the last week. He seems to be undergoing some behavioral stage and has been fighting with Kiefer quite a bit. The small one is quite a force to reckon with too. He will scratch his gege whenever he is unhappy with him. Mostly, Kieran is the one that starts everything by wanting the toy that Kiefer is playing with. Being firstborn, Kieran still doesn't quite understand the concept of sharing and playing together. This has result in much antagonism and stress. And very often, he'll cry because Kiefer hit him or he gets reprimanded because he took something from Kiefer. It also doesn't help that he is such a routine person that his toys have to be placed in certain manner and he gets upset when things are moved. Anyway, I think all this led to the early morning bedwetting. :( I told him that there will be no more scolding today. He seems happier but the sharing hasn't improved. Got to start reading up again.

Here's a photo of my happy little boy this morning.

Doing homework

Got the boys down to do some work after dinner last night. They lasted about 10 minutes and that was about it. And then they were off to disturb the daddy who turned on the TV.:P

By the way, Kieran loves to draw these days and he can sit there for hours just drawing!!

Stuff that the boys say..

Kiefer, upon waking up in the morning: Good Morning. Gege loves me! :D

Kieran, when we drove past his school: I like Ms Koh (his teacher). He (she) scolds me sometimes but I still love him (her). *he still can't get his gender specific terms right. More used to using he, him and his.*

A little roadtrip

It is the 1 week September break for us and as usual, we cannot bear to stay put at home doing nothing. So we decide to go on a little road to Malaysia. Our original plan was just to go up Melaka and spend 2 nights there, but hubb thought that 2 nights was overkill for Melaka as we will run out of things to do in one day. I don't know how it came about, but I suddenly suggested Port Dickson, and off he went and booked a wonderful hotel there for the second night.

We set off really early (615am) on Sunday morning and the road was nice and clear. We managed to sit down at Dim Sum Garden in Melaka by 9am for breakfast though we were driving at most 110km/h. We had loads of time after breakfast to drive around and even did most of our shopping before we even checked into Holiday Inn. Yup, we stayed at Holiday Inn this time round because we couldn't get good rates at Equatorial. (The cheapest at Equatorial was RM$600+ per night!!) It was pretty fun staying at Holiday Inn as well, cos afterall, it is a really new hotel. It's just that shopping isn't as convenient anymore cos Mahkota is not exactly walking distance from the hotel, and we had to drive over to Pahlawan. No more me going shopping on my own while the boys nap. Then again, the boys didn't nap all day!! :P

Kiddo enjoying his dimsum very much.

Don't know what they were whispering about. But it was a nice breezy morning, looking out to the sea and looking at people flying remote controlled aeroplanes nearby.

We had dinner at Bei Zhan again, but we thought that we really have to look for a new favourite in Melaka. Bei Zhan is getting expensive and they are not serving our favourite steamed Patin anymore. :( Anyway, cos the boys didn't nap the entire day (except for the 1 hour nap during the drive into Melaka), Kiefer zonked out during dinner and absolutely could not be woken. :(

Swimming at the infinity pool at Holiday Inn. The base of this float tore off when we were at Port Dickson. The 2 boys are getting to be too heavy to share a ride on it.

We had lunch at Mahkota the next day and started our drive to Port Dickson at about 1pm. Port Dickson is only about 1 hour away from Melaka, but the GPS took us by the small roads and we got stuck behind almost every single traffic light on our way out of Melaka. We were so relieved when we finally hit the highways. Each red light in Melaka lasts for 99 seconds. I always felt that one would really grow old while waiting for the lights!!

Port Dickson was fun. Not that there was anything there to do. However, Hubb booked The Legend International Water Homes and that was special because each chalet unit comes with its own tiny pool. The chalet was huge and the boys had such fun swimming all day (and night).

One of the highlights of our stay at Legend. The boys simply loved this buggy rides to our room.

Windows open to overlook the little pool.

The chalets were built on stilts, and each room has a little viewing panel on the floor.

Back blogging this one.

The boys were in such black moods today that they kept fighting with each other. And poor Kieran got scratched by Kiefer during one of their squabbles.
