weekend activity~

It was a jam packed weekend . Tons of activity & Aidan had lotsa 'exercise' but it was all over too soon. I always feel a li' down on Sunday evening because that's when it hits me that it's gonna be over. Yeah, one may argue that everyday is a weekend to me 'coz I don't work..But the main difference is that both Aidan and I get [a not-so-stressed-out] hubby with us :)


Saturday was MMMMe [Meet Mong,Megan,Macy and Edward] day. Thankfully Mong had suggested booking the function room because I don't think my apartment would have survived that many adults, screaming toddlers and crawling babies.

Fortunately, some of the moms came early and helped me lug down Aidan's toys and set up the function room..pinkmelonhugs and blueberrykisses..thanks for helping out too and sorry I didn't have time to chat much and u guys left early..

I think the gathering went quite well...we pretty much left the babies on their own as they crawled around the floor, playing with the toys and each other..The bigger kids had a heck of a time, based on their shrieks and constant shouting at each other. There was way too much food because everyone brought enough to feed an army [especially Mong's beehoon!!]..

I'm Aidan enjoyed himself. It was cute coz he seemed to recognise Ryan (bbhome's kid) and they were constantly playing with each other. Aidan actually voluntarily shared his toys with him. They were even crawling together and all..So cute. Pity I didn't take pics or video them together..

Thanks to those who helped me look out for Aidan when I wasn't around at the function room..and also to those who helped me lug all the stuff back to my place after the event was over. It made cleaning up so easy and relaxing..I think that was what made the difference. Everyone was relaxed and unreserved..warm and caring..looking out for each other's kids, sharing parenting tips and woes and having a good time.

meganmacy..I'm glad that ur family, especially ur ahbang had fun :)


I wasn't in this pic coz I wasnt at the function hall at that time *sob*

================================

Doesn't Aidan look more grownup in this pic with Chloe..


Sunday was more relaxing as we had lunch at the famous bak-kut-teh stall at Balestier with our pals..and then we went to Trev's place for a game of mahjong and we let our kids play with each other and one of the moms made porridge for all the kids and we had dinner at the famous XO fish Noodles place at Commonwealth. It was basically a day where we just lepaked and ate . Shioks man :D..


Chloe who is about 17 months old decided to join Aidan crawling about on the floor instead of walking upright :D..

Aidan barking at Chloe...

Aidan spotting a target/Mmm..yumyum

eh..pls don't apologize...i really don't expect u guys to help me out at all...and if everyone had helped me out, i would probably end up kiao-kar-ing and hubby would have taken the opportunity to play games :P..
And i did say my place was open to u to use wat..where will paiseh. Actually eh, I thought Ethan's cry is really soft..still like a li baby...really din bothered us at all and after that, he was all happy and eager to play :)

so many babies... I started recognising some (not so baby though)...the boy in peter pan costume previously, your maid's daughter(? the one that aidan has drived her all around your home), megan, macy, aidan's friend ryan, and the baby in photo Paul & Anselm (he looks exactly like his userpic, and looks like his father a lot).

Such great pics of parents,babies, and kiddos playing together.Just from the pics I can tell that being a parent, takes a lot of energy,especially when your kids are babies. But it looks like everyone enjoyed themselves!!and had a long fun filled day :)
