Meeting the God-grandparents

Guess who came over for dinner? 🙂

“What are you drawing, Joye joye?”

“A rainbow.”

“Oh Ethan, the white crayon won’t show up on white paper…”

[Ah, but there’s always black paper…]

“Look Mummy, it’s black paper!”   – (eyes light up)

“Yes. You can use the white crayon, and also the yellow, this blue…”

“And this is you, Kor Kor.”


[Watching FM cooking furiously in the kitchen behind glass doors]

Joye joye:   Oh! God-grandma is trapped!

FM:   Help, help!

LB:   Oh no! Let’s go and save her!… Let’s pass her a pair chopsticks through this hole, Joye joye! [door ‘knob’]

[Joye joye bravely delivers said chopsticks into God-grandma’s hands]


“Absolutely no more for them – else they’ll be bouncing off the walls tonight…”


Then we sat around for a while, played with the kids. Loved seeing Ethan fascinated with the box of his present – naming every vehicle in the set 🙂 And Joye joye: “Oh but the label is too long…” It’s true. The labels on the soft toy ball were so long, it made the entire thing look like an octopus instead! :p

“A hug and kiss for God-grandma?”   – (run, bear hug, kiss)

“A hug and kiss for Godma?”   – (run, bear hug, kiss)

“A hug and kiss for Uncle K?”   – (stop, stare, hesitate…)   “No.”

“A hug and kiss for God-grandpa?”   – (stop, stare, shakes head…)   “No.”

“More hugs and kisses for God-grandma and Godma?”


Well done, young lady! You’re a smart one. That’s the way – you’re not giving your hugs and kisses away to the boys! They’d better earn it!
