feeling blessed


although many people have warned me against having another boy (as if i can decide the gender..) i do not really mind having another boy because of how easy the twins have been 🙂

yes, they do drive me crazy with their incessant whining (on bad days) and give me bad headaches with their loud conversations and singing (everyday). but i’m glad that they’re not rough (they don’t bite, don’t hit each other), they’re not demanding (they’re really used to not getting what they want LOL), and they are loving (when i look upset, they immediately rush forward to offer pats and kisses).

mupig is also the most loving elder twin i’ve seen. when we were having dinner at a tze char stall one night, junpig was having trouble finishing his food, so my mil took the LAST PIECE of gu lu rou on junpig’s plate and offered it to mupig. mupig looked interested but did not eat it. instead, he looked at junpig and asked “miao miao, do you want?” and only ate the piece of meat after his brother replied “no, i don’t want this.

whereas most children demand instant gratification, i have trained the pigs to wait for the things they want. the amount of junk toys they’ve accumulated really pisses me off so i do not really like to let them play with new toys. as a delay tactic, i promised the pigs to let them play with their new toys from Shinagawa Aquarium (we bought these last July, so they waited a freaking 17 months to open these toys X’D!) on Christmas Day 2013.

they kept their promise by not opening the toys, so i kept my promise by letting them unbox the toys this christmas :’D

on boxing day, mupig suddenly remembered some new toys and asked me if he could play with them. i told him that he could only play with the new toys when we throw out some old ones and HE ACTUALLY NODDED AND SAID “OKAY, MUMMY”

i thank god everyday for blessing me with these children. and i hope they stay innocent for as long as possible.. and be loving and healthy and happy all the time 🙂
