The Green-Eyed-Monster in me


This is what doting Mummy & Daddy bought for Cheeky-Boy to bribe ahem, welcome him back home from his two-week long stay at his Grandma's (my hubby's mom) place in Subang starting from the beginning of the school holidays.

As usual, we had to brace ourselves for his strong rejection and objection of being brought back home with us. I really hated having to go thru this every single time he visits them. We had to literally drag him out of the house, well it’s more like, go in, grab him, and run for the car with him kicking, crying and clawing at us *roll eyes* Sigh…

The thing is, he really enjoys this visits at Grandma's - has developed such strong attachment with his two cousins and also his grandma and aunties. Well, I don't blame him for that as he rarely gets to see them but, I had to admit on being a tad bit jealous at times. Sorry, I just can't help being a little bit possessive over him. Afterall, he is a part of me - bone, blood and down to DNA too – he’s mine, mine, mine!

When we got there to pick him up that day, I told my hubby to leave the toys in the car first. It was a ploy to test his love and loyalty towards us plus, we really wanted to know if he did missed us at all after such long separations - we missed him dearly - especially my hubby - he had to fight off the urge to bring him home earlier than anticipated.

This time around we have gotten a very pleasant surprise from him. He actually ran out from his grandma’s house to greet us enthusiastically and shower us with hugs and kisses – plus, he kept calling us over and over again, “Mummy, Daddy, Mummy, Daddy….” like a broken record. I really don't have the words to describe how I felt that moment - I was like on cloud-nine! - all bursting with pride and happiness.

Sigh, I guess we did underestimate our son’s affection towards us. Never again will I question his love for us from now on. For now I know and believed there’s nothing stronger than the bond between a child and the parent.

Ahh boys will be boys. Play is more important especially with their growing up cousins.

Stev ~~ yeah that pup is really cute *conspiring to kidnap that toy for own amusement*

My boy is really much, much more luckier than me comparing our childhood. Single child so much of attention and love.


Ky ~~ No you don't. Humph! Go get your own doggy. Hahahahaa


Che-Cheh ~~ True but, can't blame them also lor. Nowadays parents are so wrapped up in their work they hardly have got the time and stamina for much family time. Sigh...
