I love milk. But I don't know why each time I get pregnant, I cannot drink milk at all. After drinking it, my stomach feels so uncomfortable.

Zoe
Thanks. Btw can I get those stuff from Cold Storage too? Tonight after having dinner, then 1.5hr felt hungry again, then ate one piece of prata. As I am typing now, I feel hungry again... OH no! I am going to be a big fat pig.

Sha would love you very much!
Hahahhahaha, becos each time my sis sees her, she sure gives her sweets/chocolates.

u bot sweets for cay ah?
i hv not, but did get vit c n mutli vits gummies.
So i will call them sweets.
anyway, he likes those plus his cough mixture plus his singulair...
but he gets to snack occasionally when ning brings home treats.
think choc... when he really got to eat was on easter... i was quite fuming mad cos he ate one then kept asking so persistently!
Most of their party goodies are kept in the pantry, then throw away cos expired??!!
i will get biscuits or cookies for them instead.
Last time Ning wld very happily take lolly pops and ask to buy.
I will tell her oh, i think this is better, take Hello Pandan and show her.
No? Pocky? Ok, choose Hello Pandan or Pocky.
Haha after a while she knows what are those that will get approval...

Just like when I say, No TV she will say but I'm watching Letterland??!! Can rt? I know u will say can!

Lin - Thanks for the suggestion. Will look out for those machines!
Aiyoh, you guys are so cute...suan couple...ha!ha! Sooo cute in the bumbo chair.

dsii - Wow...20kgs? G1 only 11.5kg now. Ian is just so cute!

CG - Wow...5W and 1H? G1 only uses 3W only. G is working from home? So good...what is his profession, if you don't mind me asking? I ate granola bars when I was PG.

Zoe - Oh dear...sending over lots of quick healing vibes! I know what you mean man...G1's school also like that. The other day, saw a boy who was obviously sick (runny nose, coughing, etc) and his grandma still brought him to school. Thankfully, the teacher took his temp and sent him home.

elmo - Thanks for the info. Will check out the M&M choc eggs & Toys R Us. Love the bracelet...so pretty! Soooooo cute!!! Does he like solid food?

Ester - No worries! Yup, I have msn. How are you doing?

Loppily - G2 is only eating solid food for lunch and dinner. She doesn't like rice porridge. A little ang moh coz she loves frisco crem rice cereals with fruits or veggies or meat with it. And..baby bites..that's her snack food...ha!ha!

Cheri - Wow...your DH's company/job so shoik, can choose, what is his profession, if you don't mind me asking? Maiden attempt wif acrylic paint looks great. If its G1...aiyoh...

Thanks all for your compliments.

dsii
4.8kg!! Poor you.

Cheri
N's brilliant at painting. She's got something going there.

sweets, chocs
D has never had any but it's his choice. He can't stand anything sweet and will spit them out. Mostly he won't even go near them. Even honey with water, he goes 'Eeee!' Picks up water to clear the taste from his mouth and goes 'Yummy!'.

CG
Other suggestions. Vege sticks in houmous dip (low-fat if possible).
Lightly buttered popcorn (high in fibre so might fill you for bit longer)

Nv really stop kenise from having unless she having acough then will cut down on it since she a kid and I feel muz have childhood so let her binge on it at times.

Lin

CG
I was hungry easily last time and my gynae nv told me to cut down or advise aything leh in the end i end up wif 18kg and kenise only 3 kg when born so sometimes gynae also tend to bull a little ya and maybe u try eat rice and might help cut down the meals as more meal also mean gain weight ma.

he likes chocs of course, like cookies and choc chip stuff...i do give him chocs on special occasion like during easter the kiddy church giving easter egg and i let him have some (someone homemade them and so pretty, how to refuse!!!)

when it comes to junk food, i do try to give organic leh...coz since it's junk liaoz...better to be safe lah.kekeke...so he's trhu all organix cheese puffs, crips, moon cookies, animal cookies, zoo cookies etc...

Lin
was thinking of letting CH try frisocrem but....coz im scared cy lactose intolerant, she might be too..then buy one whole tin end up throwing away again...

do you know of any organic cereal with milk in it?something that comes in smaller pack (like thsoe HT or bellamy's pack?)

I eat lots of rice, hee hee!
Totally envy you, gained 18kgs and yet manage to be so skinny now.

Cheri/Lena
After Children's Garden, Sha actually went to complain to G "no fun, so hot".
And G totally agreed w her.
I already have a big polar bear, and now another little polar bear.

Zoe
Yummy, yummy! I love lightly buttered popcorn... keke!

Elmo
I really feel K is getting more and more handsome.

Lin
Sha prefers those hard candies.
I also don't know why. She dislikes ribena sweets, maybe too soft or too sweet?

JP
Only occassionally he can work from home (depending on his mood, but he tries not to, as to set gd example to his staff).
He starts work late, but of course he comes home late, always busy with meetings and meetings.
He is in the aesthetics and medical industry, as an AD.
Sha is really very bossy and stubborn, hope it is not her "terrible 3" stage.

sweets?
zy has never tasted sweets too but she has a fair share of chocolate. i think chocolate is healthier than sweets cos it has milk...hee hee that's seem a lousy excuse. ok lah...mummy here loves choc.

music school
i just enrolled zy to a music school(percussion music) today. she was really happy at her first trial that I signed up immediately.

I really like how this type of music is being taught, quite different from traditional music school.Percussion music uses a wide variety of instruments and each child has an opportunity to explore all of them.

the unique point is ,it is done via collective effort. ie each child will use a different instrument and play it , something like a concert style, encourging timing coordination,concentration skills as well as eye and hand coordinations.

healthy nuts like almond, pine & walnut are good fats! when you get those muesli bars really must check on their contents ya....lots of 'fake' ones as in high in sugar & saturated fats.

sweets/choc
I hardly let S have it...if really gotta give will only give her dark chocolate like 90% kind which she loves it. Of course sometimes you cant prevent it like parties so will not give her any if unneccessary.

CG
Thanks for the compliment on K

Cheri,
He is still traveling quite abit. Next week and the following week, he will be away again. I feel like a single mum at times ever since he joined this company. I remember one two months back, I had to rush to Mount E A & E on my own a few times at midnight because both my kiddos were sick. And just yesterday, I had to bring my kiddos to the doc on my own cos Claris was down with viral infection. Fortunately, people are generally very helpful when they see a mother with a baby and a toddler.

I only manage to totally slim down all when K was about 4-5mth old as tat time i was BF and staying wif MIL while K was colic at 2mth+ so really was under big time stress tat why slim down so fast and I remember by the 1st mth after birth my waist was about 26 liao but the last few kilo then really is hard to shed off.

Juz dun worry too much anyway NB especially if u BF will make u slim down very fast like now our 2 gd example of Lin and Elmo.

oops...my disapproving smiley frown? was it that obvious? hahah, more like surprised. N has eaten sweets b4 lah...the karihome goat sweets which came in handy to 'bribe' her to eat her chinese med. Recently, she brot home some easter egg chocs from her cc so i let her hv ONE hahha ya one only...kinda poor thing if teacher asks & she din even eat any, i figured
maybe cos both my hb & I r nt sweets snacky ppl so we dun think it's a deprivation haha

loppily
hmm now i understand why u mentioned you might wanna buy a house near ur mum..it helps to hv relatives ard esp when he's away. When the kids r older, it'll be easier.

cutie
the music sch's prog sounds similar to what N does at mandeville now leh..percussion instruments, accompanied prog, playing diff percussion in concert style...

cg
ya it was really hot that morning! But N dun seem to b bothered by the heat at all. Though her cheeks r so rosy red now haha. Sigh, it kept raining in the aftns the past few weeks. Now looks like the hot season is here.

jp
hb works in regional sales; his industry deals with testing of the broadband networks ard us etc. He studied electronics engrg but i think he's been v blessed...along the way, he slowly moved & gained relevant experience into a v niche area. I was telling him that if he had focused on say semi conductor, he would hv long been retrenched.

garfield, lin, elmo
i never managed to slim down in either preg. not much at least. so i cannot have number 3 lo, else can compete for sumo mom of the year award liaoz.

food food i hate food.
CY's favourite refrain now is 'i dont wan dinner' or 'i dont wan lunch' or 'i dont wan breakfast' or 'i dont wan to eat'...

yesterday hb and i (yes both of us!) totally lost it with cy. he hardly ate the entire day and then refused to eat dinner. it's been like this these few days. (okok, when i say hardly eat, i really mean a couple of spoonful a day).we were out for dinner and groceries so chose a restaurant that serves unhealhty american food with fries and stuff. but he even spurn the fries!!!

by the time we got home, we were totally exhausted and angry with cy. i just dont get it, i mean why doesnt he eat?junk food even, pizza no, cookies, no, doughnuts no, all his favourites no...chocolate and cranberry bread no...)

i wish i can get all philosphical and proper when it comes to eating with cy. tsktsk..no sugary food for you..tsk tsk..no this for you, no that for you (no im not aiming at any mummies here
, but sometimes in all my frustration, i just wanna shout and scream at him why cant you be like other toddlers!!!????? like junk at least!!!!!eat junk at [email protected]!!!!!!

sometimes i look at his small frame and development and wonder if his very unclear speech, his inability to converse in sentences etc has got to do with him not eating...not having the proper nutrients
...smtimes i wonder if it actually helped that i stayed at home. might as well return to work and send him to eton house or some crap preschool.

evenin playgroup setting during meal times, he's only interested in hiding food from his playmates..not even eating them...%R$#!^%@#%^$#%&^

she's quite an ok traveller, i must say. But nite flight is not easy cos she would not be comfy wif lying in the tight space so might not be able to sleep well. Dun wanna risk her crying & fretting when everyone else is trying to sleep haha. Day flights, ppl tend to be more forgiving. J thot it's impt for me to rest well too at nite or would be tired out wif the travelling after that. If there r nice prog on the plane, should be able to keep her in her seat for at least half an hour. I intend to catch up on my own movie too while she's watching hers haha. Dun worry, you will hv ur own travel stories to share when Kate's older & ur hb finds it easier to travel wif them.

which part of china r u in now? my fren, who's a mummy in this thread too has just moved back to Wuxi..she was previously in Beijing.

I really peifu ur tolerance limit for cy of NO FOOD campaign cos if K were CY I had long time whack K big time cos I am a impatient person so if K even try to eat slow I would lost my cool after a few mouthful of spoonfeeding her and I would throw the whole bowl of food away and stuff her till she ask for food.

So luckily she self-feeding or I would go bonker.

Lin - Its OK lah...as long as they eat so that their digestive system will start working properly. Why don't you add in meat, veg, beans, egg yolk, etc into the frisco cream?


dsii - No worries lah! I remembered you saying that IZ was also quite big size till he started school. Maybe Ian will be like that too? Talking about sweets...G1 is eating lollipops. According to the specialist, it helps with the tongue, lips and cheeks movements. This will help to improve eating skills.

elmo - Good luck! Hope that it will be a breeze!

Zoe - Wow..you are so lucky! So far, G1 loves chocolates and lollipops but he does not eat it that often..heng ah! D is such a handsome and healthy boy...lucky you! G1 loves water too.


CG - That's great! Set by example. I am sure your DH is a wonderful boss. Talking about terrible 3..aiyoh, I was just mentioning it to my cousin about G1 turning 3 in July and how I wish his terrible 2 stage will be over soon. Guess what she said...wait till you meet Mr Horrible 3. Only when G1 turns 4, Ms Independent 4 will come along and you will finally see the rainbow. Aiyoh...so long.

Loppily - Oh dear...sending over lots of quick healing vibes! You are right...when I do go out to pick G1 from school, people tend to be more helpful as I am carrying G2 and pushing G1 in his stroller.

Cheri - Your DH is indeed blessed. My cousin bro who is in semi cond kena retrenched recently. But, heng...he got a job in Msia.

CY - Calm down, girl! I know how you feel coz G1 is a grazzer too (that's what KKH specialists called him). You know what you can do? Write down what he eat throughout the day. You may be surprised. Take a look at G1's eating diary. It might not be healthy and I have showed it to KKH and they are quite pleased as eating is much better than starving:
9.00am - 150ml FM
10.00+ am - 1 pkt of Milo (less sugar)
10.30am - Pump in MultiV and Calcium
11.00am - 1.00pm - School (snacks provided)
2.00pm - 6 mouthful of Noodles with Carrots and Chicken Slices + OJ
3.00+pm - Honeystar Cereals + 1/2 pkt Milo
4.00plus - 150ml FM
4.30pm - 6.00pm NAP
6.30pm - 1 pkt of Milo
7.30pm - 8 monthful claypot chicken rice and Vanilla Ice-Cream
9.00pm - Baby Bites (saw G2 eating and wanted some) & KoKo Crunch (saw me eating it)
9.30pm - 1 pkt of Milo
11.30pm - 150ml FM
12.00pm - Sleep

Note: Also stand-by 500ml water in a tumbler and ensure that G1 finish it by the end of the day.

Was just thinking of asking u over for a playdate since u are not too far fr my place n saves u some cooking, haha
nvr mind once OUR kids are ok?
possible to stay over at ur mom's for few days when ur hb is travelling? some company will be good for u n the kids...
