"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

I Am 3 Today!

Finally a post that is not 'overdue'. I am THREE today... Onto the HORRIBLE 3s after the TERRIBLE 2s and I am sure I will not disappoint my parents with my antics.. *cue evil grin*

I had a GREAT day today. This morning, I was rudely awakened by Mummy kissing me and going on and on about some birthday surprise and how I should wake up NOW! I so felt like killing her. I mean which mother in her right mind would wake her child up right? Anyway I had no choice but to drag myself out of my slumber, not without making my unhappiness known, and was carried out by Mummy to the hall where a new KITCHEN SET greeted me! Happiness! I finally can cook for Sully and Mike.. Now on to trying ot get them to bring me to Hotel Intercon. Oh ya, in case you are wondering why Mummy woke me up.. cause she had to work and she wanted to be there to see me discover my present. *roll eyes*

After a fun morning with Daddy, Nai Nai and Mei Mei playing with the kitchen set and watching TV (how could we not watch TV when Caitlyn is around right?), Mummy came back from work and we were scooped off to Sentosa where we were going for the highlight of my birthday - the Luge! I have been telling Yee Yee and Gong Gong about this car without wheels and TODAY is the day!

Wow! Was the luge FUN or was it FUN? Daddy and Mummy bought the family package for 8 rides! That meant Mei Mei and I went on the luge together with Daddy and Mummy thrice each. What about the remaining 2 rides? They went to Nai Nai who gamely tried the luge too! Think she enjoyed the luge but hated the sky ride! Pretty much the same for me! I didn't like the sky ride but we HAD to sit on it in order to luge again, so that pretty much decided our "fate".

After the fun, fun , fun luge rides, my eyes could hardly open already (as I hadn't napped yet) but we were dragged to get some juice and ICE CREAM! WOW! Is it a special day or what? After that we went to take a bus back to our car. At least that's what I am told as I fell asleep on Daddy's shoulders even before boarding the bus. Mei Mei fell asleep soon on the car.

There's more... If you noticed, the cake cutting had not happened yet. Gong Gong and Por Por came over to our place too. Everyone sang me a 'happy birthday' song and we cut the cake! CHOCOLATE cake! Yummy!!

Well, I have to say I did enjoy my 3rd birthday thoroughly! If only it were birthdays everyday!

I Love You

Isaiah: *giving mummy a hug* I hug you because I love you mummy.

Mummy melts.. this has been happening rather frequently and it just melts Mummy's heart as I have always been a Daddy's boy. Also, I have been really testy recently and this declaration just surprised her I guess.

Cut to one day at GIANT while shopping.. I was holding onto Mummy's hand and walking when I turned to face her..

Isaiah: Mummy, can I hug you?
Mummy: *great smile and a warm heart* sure, darling. *knelt to my level and hugged me*
Isaiah: Mummy, I hug you, so now you have strength to carry me.
Mummy: *comes bouncing down to reality from the sky*

haha, dun I just know how to press her buttons and get wat i want. Now Mummy is wondering if all my previous declarations of love were just smoke bombs thrown to distract her from my true motives. Haha, what do YOU think?

Mummy received an email from Aunty Jeanelle with the picture above. That was taken with Ms Lavina at the last of our Kidsloft lesson. Ms Lavina now has a 3rd child and is taking a year off teaching hence Mei Mei won't have a chance to have lessons with her. What a pity. Ms Lavina is really good at telling stories and she would be able to get the attention of all of us, which is an amazing feat.

I enjoyed my first few terms with her. Towards the end though, I was on my Terrible 2s mission to drive everyone crazy with my contrary behaviour and would fuss and insist that I did not like Kidsloft. However, I would participate in every activity hence, Mummy called my bluff, as she always does, somehow.. Hmmm..

I will miss my friends from Kidsloft. And now Daddy and Mummy are telling me about a 'big boy school' I have to start attending from end Jun called 'Gracefields'. I am not too keen on that and even a tad nervous. I just want to go to Kindermusik and attend Ms Shauna's class. Is that too much to ask? I guess the month of July will see Mummy chronicling my going to school woes. I am so Not going to make it easy for them. haha.. BEWARE

Isaiah: IKEA kitchen set then I drive to Hotel Intercontinental to cook for Sully and Mike...
Mummy: urghz!

Caitlyn: *crying* Mummy, carry me! Mummy cannot go to work!
Mummy: Mummy must go to work so Mummy have money, buy Barney for you ok?
Caitlyn: I have Barney already.. *continues crying*

*think Mei Mei also has some of my skills? hee

Ready for NS?

Mummy could only find these 2 pictures from Daddy's FB.. This is wat we look like 1 yr on fooling ard in Shu Shu's soldier uniform! Mummy will try to upload more photos and videos if she is able to work around her school's rules of not using personal USB devices which she still thinks is s.t.r.a.n.g.e.

We'll Be Back S..o...o...n...

WOW.. the amount of cobwebs here is amazing! It's time we start clearing them I suppose. Let me see if I can get either Mummy or Daddy to be our scribe again!

Anyway, lots have changed in the year, and many fun experiences and not so fun experiences have occured. Mei mei and I have definitely grown in many ways and we are still the most challenging yet fulfilling aspect of Daddy and Mummy's lives! Mei mei is now much more fun to play and fight with as she has learnt to yell as loudly as me and to retaliate. What she doesn't realise is I AM BIGGER than her. Many a times we have to be physically pried apart to prevent any injuries, but not to worry, we still love each other a lot! If anyone attempts to "punish" either one of us, we will stand up for the other.

Many staycations have come and gone. We have also been on a cruise, to Phuket and to Genting. My favourite hotel is Hotel Intercontinental and I am always wanting to go there. My current favourite show is Monsters Inc and I keep telling Daddy and Mummy to bring me to Hotel INtercon to cook for Sully and Mike for reasons known only to myself. This wish has not been fulfilled yet as they brought me to Festive Hotel instead. Didn't they know I can't cook there?

Mei mei's favourite show is Barney, wait, Bananas, wait, Chuggington.. haha.. That's Mei Mei for you. She is very fickle minded (all girls are like that, I hear?) and she changes her mind in seconds. She's speaking more now and getting more assertive. One thing about her though is that she is a "paper tigress". She's really loud and fierce at home but once out, she is really shy. If anyone so much as looks at her, she plays dead and she would just bury her face in mummy's shoulders, chest wherever she can bury basically. She's able to speak in sentences and loves asking "why" cause she hears me ask that all the time!

My current craze is CARS. I know a Toyota from a Honda from a Mercedes and the list goes on. I even know a Toyota Altis from a Toyota Vios and the list goes on. In fact, Daddy and Mummy know less cars than I do probably due to the many trips to various car showrooms that Gong Gong has brought me to. My favourite is Mercedes Benz and I have promised to buy various cars for various people once I have the ability to. (Mummy is forcing me to write this so she can use this "against" me in future!!! E..v...i...i....l...)

Mei mei loves soft toys and she has many of them. Once she gets a new one, she would 'discard' her old one, so I am not too sure what her favourite is currently. Yup, that's Caitlyn for you.

Anyway, I have to pen off now as Mummy has to rush off for her lessons. More pics and videos coming up! ;P
