I have both kids at home with me today and it was actually a rather fun day. We went to the church’s playgroup mid-morning, as we always do every Thursday. Then, we dropped by my aunty’s place to visit my cousin and had microwave lunch together, haha! They both behaved really, really well so it was a no sweat, no drama morning 😌
The both of them napped almost as soon as we got home. Naomi napped for 3.5 hours!! Didi took a while longer to fall asleep and didn’t sleep for as long. But I myself also managed to lie down and shut my eyes for a bit so that was a big plus!
Come evening, Mr S finally got home from work. I decided to give him a break today and bathe Naomi myself instead. It’s been a while since I last bathed her anyway so I thought it’d be a nice thing to do.
As I was washing her, she noticed that my knuckle was a bit red. I wasn’t actually hurt or anything. It was just reddish for some reason. Then this conversation ensued:
Naomi: (Pointing at my knuckle) Oh no!! What happened to mama’s hand? It’s ouchie!
Me: Oh… it’s nothing.
Naomi: (Pauses. Then said) Be careful, mama…
Oh mannnn…… my heart!!! She is just so, so sweet at times. It makes all the crazy and tearful days worthwhile!!! 😍💓💕💞
