其实对未来弟媳,一直以来也没什么意见, 直到去年老爸病倒,我们在慎重考虑后决定延迟他们的婚礼。

结果在我意料之外的事情发生了。小弟打电话来说,这位弟媳很不满,说我们不重视她的婚礼,说她的朋友们已经订好机票要来参加他们的婚礼,等等。而令我大跌眼镜的是,小弟好像为这事操心多过老爸的病情。

从那时候起,真的对弟媳大大扣分。有时想想,小弟怎么这么软弱,有时又想小弟怎么这么没眼光,。。现在想想,就当物以类集吧。想想以前小弟说弟媳很天真,我倒觉得这种人很自私,不会为他人着想。应该是小弟天真罢了。也或许小弟也是有点自私的吧,不然他怎么认可弟媳的所做所为呢?如果是我,早就休夫了。算了吧!

想到这里,我想谢谢我的丈夫,在爸爸开刀时,拿假来帮忙。真得很感激。

还是会祝福的,只要他们相处得好,管自私不自私什么事。

“Mama, why our world is not Word World? In Word World, we can build things using word. Our world we cannot build thing, need to buy.” commented Ling after finished watching her Word World cartoon.

Earings

Posted on: June 28, 2010

“Ying, why are you putting two stickers on your ears?” Ling spotted two small blue stickers on Ying’s ears.

“Oh, it’s my earings.”  Ying replied.

“No, earings need to poke ear one.” Ling said.

“No, mine one no need one.” explained Ying proudly.

… hahaha…

Just to share what Ling and Ying has progressed in BM.

Still, they are not so good in vocabulary, but I know they are picking up.

And last week, when picked up the girls from school, Ling eagerly told me, “Mummy, mummy, I know what to say in Bahasa Malaysia when want to toilet. “Bolehkah saya pergi ke tandas?”

She was so excited about that she couldn’t help running to tell her dad when he came home from work.

And for Ying, she likes to pick up one Pelangi book,  “Apa Ini” and read to her dad (well, while the daddy has his eyes fixed on the big box where over twenties strong men running around for a small black and white ball).

And now, I try to reduce the use of sticker as they are quite familiar with suku kata. So when doing worksheet, most of the time, the problem will be they don’t know what the things are called in Bahasa Malaysia. Once you tell them, they are able to spell it out.

Why do I think needs to start with suku kata to learn BM? Why not straight vocab? Can, can start with vocab. I don’t mean cannot. Just that for me, I find it easier to help my children once they have confident at the basic. Easier to push.

Suku kata is the easiest to master for a kid. Once they master it, they have confident and easier to help them moved on. Like sometimes I will say, “kuda” is horse. Then Ying will say, “I know, k-u-ku, d-a-da.” Then I will quickly say, “Yes. Clever girl. You are right.” ..and well, with a little bit praise, few times of practise, Ying knows by heart now “kuda” is horse. At least during the teaching process, no yelling, no scolding, and absolutely no the forbidden word like “stupid, so easy also don’t know” in my house.

So at least for the start they won’t dislike the language too much. At least, that is the best I can give. Have to think a bit like my husband, I have faith that they can learn if they dont hate it.

After a month of no-day-no-night of working, finally, right after a successful demo of the application we develop for the client, fell sick.

The whole chest is like burning and can feel the chill even hiding under the thick blanky. Really feel like oh dear, oh dear, I am collapsing…  At first a bit worried..

Luckily the girls are old enough and understanding  that they do behave good and given me some peaceful hours to rest (as long as they are not fighting or arguing over somethings, I enjoy their always high pitch + loud voice when they play and have fun). My mum always said, “I don’t know where on earth the strength come from their small little body, so 洪亮, feel like the house is going to collapse. Some more they are girls…”

Normally we will go for some shopping during weekends, so this Saturday was at home. And Ling tried to 安慰 her little ssiter, “Mummy is not feeling well, so we cannot go shopping. She needs to rest. It’s ok. We can go again when mummy is hahaha …

Luckily we have a great boss for this project. After the great success (well, it’s not done yet, to me, just a small milestone, a long way to go still), he announces a day off, a long weekend, and he even stay online to make sure everyone leave their desk, and go enjoying the long weekends with family and friends , and strictly no work.

Not a bad fall after all 😛

BM cut-&-paste(II)-Lesson 11

I was busy like an ant (extreme busy) for the last one month..two more weeks to go (I hope). Worked no day no night.

Was not able to accompany the girls and just let them play by themselves.

This few days, I notice there are anger in Ling, she seems to get irritated easily by Ying. And she tents to compete with her, like who will take bath first, who will sit in front of the car.

And Ying, cheeky her, she likes to nag her sister to help her get her things done, like keep her toys. Our mistake also, as we always tell Ling , “Ling, you have to take care of you sister oo, you are 姐姐哦.”

Ling was very kind and loving girl. She gives in to her sister in the beginning, especially when Ying cried, she normally will be the first one to say sorry. Yes, we are proud of her, but I guess, we didn’t speak out and let her know how proud we are of her well being.

But recently I think Ying has overdone it, and Ling started to act not so good, started to show temper, though a short one.

Tonight, Ling woke up a few times, sleeping talking, scolding her sister, crying, saying she doesn’t like her sister any more, crying, and crying… Ling tends to get this kind of reaction at night during her sleep when she was upset during the day time. It was a bad evening where the two girls fight over a book (where there are plenty more beside that one). I scolded them, the Dad scolded them as well. So, now Ling has nightmares.

I must do something to make Ling feels better and ‘fair’. Eventually how well and peaceful a family is depends on how  the children feel they are ‘fairly treated’.

… bringing up children are so tough…

and sorry Ling, mama neglected your feeling. It’s tough to be 大姐。Please forgive mama.
