bicycle built for 2


just started this ritual this month. every evening i try to spend some "quality" time with the girls on the condition that:

1. i am not too tired – case of interrupted sleep from the nite before (yah ellisa is still crying in the middle of the nite for mommy...she will say " i want my mommy"...then "daddy i want nen nen" ~ heheh well trained from mommy to request daddy to do the “honours”)



2. finish all their meal ~ excellent way to make them clear the dinner plate.



3. the sky is clear…raining cannot la



4. they gotta go in when daddy comes home from golf about 7ish…see la he so “hou meng” (fortunate) can play golf almost every weekday…saturday & sunday ~ no golf la…restricted to family day


usually it will start with erika cycling her bike, me pushing ellisa in the stroller chasing erika. then ellisa will wanna sit on erika's bike, “trying” to fight with erika for it...wins!! and ride erika’s bike, she doesn’t want to ride her smaller bike, gets erika all mad!! but erika still give in to her baby sister most of the time…then erika try riding in ellisa’s bike...very difficult la. sulk...i will tell erika i will push her on the stroller, so she gets on stoller....ride a few rounds...ellisa saw that another being is on "her" stroller...gets down from the bike and wants to jump onto the stroller...in the end mommy gotta push 2 of them!
might as well get 2 strollers, except i will need 4 hands!!!

i think even with all the drama, it does give me a chance to sweat out some and not lead my sedentary, horizontally tv-bound life.
