First day at work for 2009. Time moves very slow! The 5-day break for New Year didn’t see me getting much rest or sleep. Most of the time it was ~ in, out, in, out ~ ada je benda nak buat. Letih lah!
MrN is still on leave until tomorrow. I like it when he’s on leave ~ he will be at home when I get back from work.
One thing good about the long break is, it gives me a chance to catch up on lost times with my husband. I got to go to the pasar with him, buy groceries with him, he masak for us… best! The other day he made roast chicken, then sup tulang rawan. Yesterday, it was gulai ikan senangin. He said, “You sebut je nak makan apa, I’ll cook it for you!” Hee… hee…! Those are the things that I miss about him whenever he's in JB.
The little boy is ok ~ still obsessed with Ultraman. No, he hasn’t gone off the phase yet. Infact, our house is now swamped with Ultraman paraphernalia. Everywhere I turned, sure ada nampak kaki Ultraman lah, tangan Ultraman lah, CD Ultraman lah…pening!
This boy has a habit of pulling out the body parts of this mute superhero. Kadang2 tu, baru beli sehari, dah hilang satu kaki. Right now, all the Ultraman in the house has only one hand and one foot. Even the Godzilla is headless!
Our TV is perpetually on Ultraman mode. Thanks to the father who bought a 52-episode Ultraman DVD. Bangun pagi nak tengok Ultraman, nak tidur kena tengok Ultraman, dalam kereta nak tengok Ultraman. Tak muak ke??
And he knows the episodes so well. He knows what is Ultraman's next move, which episode ada hantu, which hand goes where, what action comes next, the songs, the sounds... he scares me sometimes! At 2.5 years old he already know all that, what else would be pick up when he's 10?
Due to an overdose of Ultraman during the day, this boy tends to have nightmares at night. He'd wake up in the middle of the night crying, “Na nak Ultraman!! Na nak Ultraman!" (Nadim thinks he dreamt Ultraman was chasing him!)
Last night, as MrN and I baru nak start projek, this boy suddenly woke up screaming, “Ultraman Dyna!!! Ultraman Dyna!!!” Hish… Ultraman Dyna apa pulak pukul 1 pagi macam ni? His eyes were still closed. Sekejap lepas tu, he shouted again, “Monster! Monster!” while frantically moving his hands and legs as if he was fighting a real monster!
Hee... hee... funny! Terus tak jadi projek!
My second daughter, who just started a blog, wrote a nice posting on her observation of her two brothers at home. Read here.
