Yesterday was quite a gila night. As usual we rushed like mad to reach home to cook dinner and Apah picked up Kieran from school. When they came back I saw both of them chewing something in their mouth and there was a guilty look on Kieran’s face. Of course Amah question la, but he kept avoiding me and finally I asked Apah. He cooly told me, it was just Mentos. WHAT?!?!?! I told him so many times, cannot give anything sweet or anything for that matter to the boy before meal time.
Well, mothers know best, as expected, he was not eating his dinner properly, playing with his food as usual, didn’t finish the rice and vegetable. I forced him to finish the vege and at the same time scolded Apah again for feeding him the mentos. Apah actually was very stressed with his work yesterday, already not very happy so lost his cool and let go on Kieran blaming him for my scolding. So he shoved him upstairs to start doing his homework and must have given him very harsh words too. Then he came down saying the boy was sobbing upstairs.
Amah already can’t be bothered leow, cos busy baking my cookies. Then Apah had to leave as he haven’t packed his bag for his Singapore trip the next day, so got to go back to old place to pack and besides, getting picked up from old place is more convenient for the cabby. Kieran suddenly appeared on the stairs wailing…….apah of course heart softened la…and went to carry him.
Pacified him but he was still sobbing with the vege inside his mouth, so as usual, crying causes him to cough and then..ta da..VOMIT! Vomit on the floor like not enough, and then the maid ushered him into the bathroom and guess where he continued throwing out his food? In the basin! This maid really damn stupid or what, I already told her so many times cannot vomit in the basin, well of course blocked la! I made her clear the ‘S’ trap and clean the pipe, if not for this small thing I got to call a plumber ah?
But during this drama, Amah just move the mouth to scold, scold, nag, nag and instruct etc etc..cos my hands were busy ma!
