Hihi Mummies,



Finally have some time to sneak in. Whole morning being bug by colleagues...



that is why I strongly dun like the idea of having maids, heard too many stories..but then if really no caregiver, maid will be the only solution or if not infant care is another one...



Btw, mummies who are interested in xmas show by character, can refer to the below..it shows all the show time..going to bring my boy to see Dora and Hi-5 this sunday..

Hey Wayne's mummy, thanks for the info. Will bring my girl to the Hi-5 one. She really loves them! =)



Re: Maid

Actually i also dun feel too safe to leave the kids with maid. THat's y I'm going to be around to keep an eye on everyone. I was already planning that in the event that i have to go out the whole day without them, I'll prob cart everyone over to my mother or mil's place so that there's always an extra pair of eyes and hands to look-see and help. I guess the maids are like us, have different thresholds of how much each can "ta-han". Somemore it's not their kid, so they naturally dun have the emotional attachment with them. That said, there are also mothers around who may do the same thing when they are frustrated with their own children and don't know what else to do. So i really believe it's a human thing...

mudppie, last time when I had a maid, we sent my maid and boy to my parents home everyday and pick them up after work. Very siong loh, but no choice. I guess this time it will be the same arrangement. I dun feel safe putting bb and maid alone in the home for too long even thou my former maid is ok. We are thinking of asking her to come back.

Val - yes, getting a good maid is like strike lottery! Very difficult to read the maid's mind on how they think and so on..

I also close 1 eye, bo pian..but I have cctv helping me to monitor when I'm at home and I don't let my child spent a lot of time alone with maid.

good afternon ladies!



Dolly, you've got to take care... me too having running nose and slight cough... i think it is the "easily fall sick" season again. Drink more fluids, and go see doc if not better. i have been trying to pump in Vitamin C... seems got improvement, you can try rather than take medicine.

Hi mummies,



Just now went for lunch at Sakae Sushi, now still feeling very full...sleepy..yawn..



mudpie, ling, Mrs Wong class is very good. I attended her class in 2006. She will teach you antenatal exercise, how hubby can massage for you, prepare you for birth and how to take care of baby...can ask her advice for bf also..I attended when I am 20 weeks above.

mavis, i really like the midwives at Mt A, even though have not given birth in other hospital so my comments may be bias. They are super experience and attentive, i had a sudden case of infant distress when i was resting in the room and they came in and assisted immediately and called for gynae for immediate delivery.
