Last week was difficult. I think it’s because the little one was just coming into a cold, and wasn’t sleeping well. This week, both kids have a twinkle back in their eyes, and the whining has gone way, way down.
I love seeing how the kids play. Siu Jeun is all about exploring, poking, prodding, taking apart and stacking it back up. Just to knock it back down. I love seeing his fat little feet, padding across the floor. Or on tip-toes, if he’s especially curious.
Ming Wai, on the other hand, only needs an empty table or windowsill to be happy. She will happily talk to imaginary friends for up to half an hour, serving them tea or instructing them in the proper way to care for sick cats. I love listening to her chatter. She’s so shy, I think there are only a handful of people who have ever heard one of her monologues. They’re impressive. They’re almost always surprising. She is growing up so fast.
And, today, I’m in love.
