fish! fish! fish!

was feeling lazy, rather lack of continuous sleep during the night, had to make milk, pacify ellisa from her bouts of crying (dreams?) and zapping those irritating mozzies with my electric racket! so decided to take thursday off to spend time with the girls! i don't really do this because the house is full of people and i don't have any peace to rest or have the luxury of the house to myself and the girls. we only have that during sunday and some saturdays ! wish my house is bigger, the only place to hide from them is my room.

already stated in my earlier blog, that i am no maternal material! so the motley crew of nieces & nephews can really irritate me to my bones...since they are in my house...the only escape for me is not to go home! if i were home, i will be like a home&safety police stopping them from poking at the piano keys, jumping on my furniture, screaming for kakak to do something for them, playing with the food, sitting right in front of the tv or drawing on my house or playing soap and water! yes...it is more stressful than work...i really admire those school teachers! i try to look the other way and close 2 eyes but its not easy. they are also at my computer...which we quickly segmented so that they can't touch or change anything important!

of cos this motley crew are considered angels compared to a lot of children...but since i see them everyday...i need to put down some rules lah! or not i dunno what becomes of my house.

but all this doesn't seem to exasperate po po, she in fact thrive in this crazy situation, while even kong kong get frustrated with the kids and need some time-out by going to the garden and killing some trees (luckily i have a few for him) or moving the lawn to vent out some steam! ~ very productive energy.

since there are already 5 happy kids in the house, i don’t understand why sometimes my aunt will dump another 1 or 2 kids here…oii we don’t open a nursery…even then, there are also limits! we gotta adhere to…luckily we now have 2 maids helping but that is not the issue…it makes me really angry not at the kids but the inconsiderate parents! and it makes me doubly angry coz kong kong is definitely not a happy man when he sees the other invaders infesting the house! and i hate to see my dad unhappy…i am super close to him, in fact much closer to him than my mom…

another point is ellisa is allergic to lots of stuff, when it comes to meal times with the motley crew, the food is laid out on table and in an instant ellisa will swoop into their food, and yesterday, she took some forbidden food ~ fish!! just a tiny bit and within minutes we can see her face transformed with bumps, left eye swollen until almost closing, face red, body itch!! had to rush her to see paed but not open…so quickly went back…bathe her with lots of neem leaves (heard they have anti- inflammatory powers)….made her drink lots of water hopefully to flush out the toxin and clear the allergic reaction and put some cream…luckily the swelling & itchiness was over in an hour but her eye was still one big one small! this morning, eyes much bigger but still not 100% original yet!

no matter will still have to take ellisa to see the paed and see if there are any emergency medication we must keep at home, in case it happens again!
