"Friends Are Special"

Mei Mei and I have been watching some Barney programmes where they keep telling us friends are special. I never really though about that but on Sunday, I found out that friends ARE special.

As Mei Mei and I were still nursing a cough and runny nose, we were kept home on Sunday afternoon. Mummy and Daddy decide to let us out of the house to play with bubbles and sidewalk chalk. It was fun!

Later, we noticed our neighbours peering out of their house longingly. Mummy made me go over to ask them to play with us although I was not too keen as that would imply I needed to share my bubble wands! Their mummy decided to let them out to play with us, to my dismay initially. But hey, it IS more fun to play with friends! They were nice and gave in to me most of the time. Gemma (our other neighbour) also came over to join us later and we had a bubbly good time!

At the end of the play session, I went into our house and proclaimed to Daddy and Mummy "friends are special". Daddy and Mummy were really glad that a simple bubble playing session could lead to such a life lesson. ;p

Caitlyn Says "I'm Stuck"

As many of you would know by now, Mei Mei detests sitting in the car seat and will fuss most of the times unless she has some milo balls or a milk bottle stuffed in her mouth.. Well, we recently found out her take on the car seat..

As Mummy was carrying Mei Mei to the car park from the lift, the follow conversation ensued..

Mummy: We're going to sit car car nor, ok? Be a good girl.
Caitlyn: Ok, I will... Mei Mei stuck
Mummy: Huh? Why Mei Mei stuck?
Caitlyn: Because Mei Mei stuck.
Mummy: Why? Where are you stuck? *wondering if Mummy had carried her in a way that hurt her*
Caitlyn: Because Mei Mei sit car seat.
Mummy: *rolls eyes*

So there, sitting in car seat = stuck. So she dislikes it. Haha

Who woke Caitlyn up?

Daddy was resting at home today cos he has a flu. At around 12 noon, Daddy went out of his bedroom to find Caitlyn awake and bleary-eyed.

Daddy: What happended to you Mei Mei? Why wake up so early?

Caitlyn: Daddy, the fire engine woke me up! [Apparently an ambulance sped down the PIE with its sirens blaring and woke her up.]

Daddy: Oh you poor thing...

Yes, Mei Mei has Daddy firmly wrapped around her little pinky ;)

Work and Money

Daddy and Mummy had always been telling Mei Mei and I that they had to work to earn money to bring us for holidays, hotel stays, toys etc etc. Then one fine day...

Isaiah: Daddy, can you buy me xxx (Daddy cannot remember what for the life of him)?

Daddy: I have no money, Isaiah.

Isaiah *pauses and thinks for a little while* : Daddy, you work but you have no money?

Daddy: *Urgh*

Caitlyn Wins! (all the time)

Mei Mei may be a little small thing but she's really good at "psychological" warfare. I, on the other hand, am bigger than her, but straight so yes, she always "wins".

An example: (and happens almost EVERY trip in e car)

Isaiah is watching the cars through the windows..

Caitlyn: Gor Gor cannot see the car!
Isaiah: *instantly whining with tears* I want to see cars! Why mei mei say I cannot see car??
Caitlyn: Gor Gor cannot see car! *smirks*

**Mummy recently got really irritated and taught me to say "I have eyes, I can see, Neh Neh NI Boo Boo" , but do I? NO, I still let Caitlyn get to me! Why? Well, why does she have to say I cannot see cars when I want to? Why?!

Caitlyn: Give you elephant (when she jolly well knows i want the cat)
Isaiah: I dun want elephant, I dun want elephant!
Caitlyn: U want cat or elephant?
Isaiah: Cat
Caitlyn: *with a great big smirk* Give u elephant
Isaiah: "fusses" I dun want I dun want!

Well, Mei Mei sometimes get kicked or hit by me cause she irritates me so much! And she would start bawling, which would get ME into trouble! Hmmm, is what Daddy and Mummy says correct, she has me wrapped around her little finger? Isn't she such a "devious" lil thing?

An SMS from Yee Yee to Mummy - dated 9 June 2010

Mummy received this from Yee Yee and she decided to blog it down since she has a free period.

"I need to get my masters and PHD and even then I will not be able to answer Isaiah's barrage of questions! Why do we dream, why do animals wear clothes, why can't starlight talk, etc.. When I tried to be smart and asked if animals in the zoo wore clothes to illustrate why starlight doesn't, he rebutted, does starlight live in a zoo? Isaiah - 1, Yee Yee - 0"

Yupz, that's basically what talking to me is like! Shall we continue to keep score, Yee Yee? ;P
