i’m calming

It’s official.

Dean is the favourite of both Daniel and Mariam.

So so annoyed about this.

He’s basically the one they run to when we both come home, and when I come home alone, Daniel will come to me and ask “Where Daddy?” -________-” WELCOME HOME TO YOU TOO DANIEL. Mariam as well, is suchhhhh a Daddy’s girl. She will put out her arms wide open for Dean to carry her and when she lies down on his chest, she’d look at me and I swear sometimes I imagine her jeling at me. You came out of me, missy. No need so eksyen.

The one thing I’m really good at is putting them to sleep. Which is such an unglamorous job. You get them when they’re cranky and tired, and when they’re all fun and happy, Daddy’s the fun guy. Pfttttt.

Dean called me from the room earlier and there he was with a crying Mariam who looked so unhappy. “Can you put her to sleep? I think she wants you.”

True enough, the moment I carried her, she stopped crying and laid her head on my shoulder. Such an awwwwww moment for me. Dean went to the toilet and I stayed there with Mariam, swinging her gently and singing to her softly.  She fell asleep soon after and I put her down for a nap.

Yes I flatlay my kids. They’ll thank me when they’re older. 

Dean came out of the toilet, “Wowww, she fell asleep so fast!” 

“Yep,” I said blowing my nails.

“Woww, you must be that boring.”

    Haha glad to know im not the only “boring” mummy around. The kids would never sleep with their dad. Funtime is with daddy. One day i told my husband that i somehow feel a tad bit offended of the fact that im their go to person when theyre tired and sleepy and he told me that I have a soothing voice (I sing them to sleep every night) and that made me feel better. Hehe

    but, yup…ehh sakitnya hati kita kan..at the same time “yes..i am calming”
