Baby blues.

This is my current mood: 😭

Not because I had a new baby but it’s about MissZ . I couldn’t stop crying whenever I think of her. She used to have all the attention but now she has to share with her little brother. 

MissZ has been very challenging over the weekend. She was overwhelmed with her baby brother arrival. Everyone in the house has been telling her not to do this and that. 
I can feel that she wants my attention. 

She refused to have her afternoon nap because she wants to see what’s going on. She got punished during dinner time for not eating her dinner. She was just out of control 😱. 

So I was really upset and emotional. I yelled at MissZ. I feel so guilty but I couldn’t help myself because I was so frustrated about her nuisance behavior. 

This morning when she came to my room to say good bye to me and ask if I’ll miss her. I said “Yes I will” and she replied “Don’t cry ok mommy.” 

40 weeks 4 days. Baby you’re late.

 

I went for my hospital appointment today. As the doctor was doing a stretch and sweep examination, she accidentally broke my water.Totally didn’t expect that to happen. πŸ˜‚

So I got sent to the birth unit to get a CTG scan to monitor baby’s heart rate. It was meant to be a 20 minutes thing however it took longer than expected because baby’s heart rate was reading quite high ; I’m guessing signs of stressed. After 4 hours of monitoring the midwives were happy with the results and I was told to go home to wait for labour to begin. 

So I’m back to the waiting game again however I’m booked in for induction if nothing happens between now till 6am Wednesday . *fingers crossed* 

Random rants by MissZΒ 

So MissZ knows that Des does his vaping business in the garage (man cave) and sometimes when he is cooking he walks away to a corner and vapes. Obviously there’s bound to have some smoke residues following him after he vapes. 

MissZ is a very smart girl and her observations is very good too. She knows that the garage is where her dad does his vaping stuff… One time I asked her what is daddy doing in the garage, her reply was “he’s doing naughty stuff… Smoking (she even showed me how smoking is done)” OMG! 😱 I dont even know where the hell did she learn that word and action from. 

Well yesterday when we were having dinner out of no where MissZ let out a random rant about Des doing his stuff in the garage and continue with this song…”Puff, the Magic Dragon” song.  Des was obviously shocked from what MissZ just did and tried to hold a straight face. I find it so funny that I couldn’t stop laughing. LMAO πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. 

Lesson learnt— we have to be more careful now with what we say and do in front of the kids. Never underestimate the abilities of a 4 year old. 

#descooking – lamb shank pasta

  This is one of the best pasta dish that Des cooks during winter. Braised lamb shank with roasted pumpkin, feta cheese and cassecce pasta. 

I usually go for 2.5 serves because it’s just so damn delicious. Even MissZ loves it so much she asks for second serve. 

Due.

 Well it seems like this little tenant doesn’t wanna come out today. Maybe it’s due to the cold weather. 

I’m hoping baby will come out before the hospital have to put me through induction. 

Miss Four.

Baby girl is now 4 years old. So happy to see her growing up as a happy and healthy child. 

To start with her birthday week celebrations, I decided to give her a mini pampering treat by getting her a manicure at our local nail shop. 

 Surprisingly she was very well behaved. I think it’s because she has watched me getting my nails done couple of times and she has shown the interest in it. 

 I have decided to have a mini celebration for MissZ in daycare with all her pre kinder room mates. She was so excited about getting the party bags ready for her “selected” special friends.

She was so spoilt with the presents she got from her grandparents and us. 
MissZ’s current craze is Disney Princess. She has asked for an Ariel and Cinderella doll. 

We had MissZ’s birthday dinner at a Chinese restaurant in Springvale which serves her favorite homemade Chinese sausage. 

Cheeky girl with her KungKung and PoPo.   

After dinner we went home to surprise the birthday girl with a pink cake with a unicorn.  

 This is my cheat way of organizing MissZ’s birthday cake. I am really hopeless when it comes to baking so I decided to get a strawberry jam sponge cake and stuck a toy on the cake 😝😝😝. 

Last day at work.

The day has come. I’ve handed over my work to Genie to look after while I’m away. Still feeling very nervous about whether I have left out any important informations. I hope everything will be alright during my absence. 

I did a detour to Adriano Zumbo before heading to the office to get morning tea for my wonderful team and people in the office that I work with. Everything on this plate is super yummy especially the quiches and muffin. 

  

Poppy the foodie organized lunch for me and the team at Red Spice Road QV. The food was fantastic. Everyone enjoyed the pork belly dish, crying tiger beef salad and red curry chicken dish. 

Then at 4pm, I had my going away presentation by Phil. He is a really a very nice boss to work with. Everyone in the office chipped in for my farewell present. I got a soft mat by dwingler in chevron print. Sweeeeet 😍 .

I was allowed to leave early but I decided to stay till 5.30pm to keep Juju company as she has been a great colleague/friend. — Juju don’t be sad… I’ll be back very soon! 😁😁😁

Week 38Β 

 
My last week at work. 

I have mixed feelings about going for my maternity leave although I’m only away for 8 months. This pregnancy I decide to finish up at work 2 weeks before my due date. I tend to get quite tired in the middle of the day but I feel better to be at work. At least I get to enjoy the warm heating. LOL. 

To be honest I really enjoyed going to work. I guess it’s because the people I work with are all very nice and we keep each other sane from all the madness. 

The tummy has popped out a lot this week but it is still sitting quite high. I think it’s because I have a short torso. The Fitbit that Des got me was really helpful to track how many steps I’ve done in a week. I’ve been doing some minor workout at home to tone up my arms. I’m super conscious of my arms being flabby. 

I wonder if bubs will arrive on time or fashionably late like his sis. MissZ is very excited about her baby brother. She can’t stop talking about him in daycare. Such a cutie pie ❀️.
