Not sure when this epidemic started..but it is spreading quite rapidly...first it was D. Nowadays she does not insist to be picked up every waking hours or whenever she sees adult in the vicinity. Nope..she's over that..getting picked up is lame...its for babies...she's a grown baby now...thats different category.
Since she's able to sit down now..so no more watching the ceiling or the fan for that matter. She can play with her toys the way toys are meant to be played around..or watching tv..babytv most of the time..sometimes sinetron with bibik..and sometimes those philippines soap opera too...sigh
Anyway..she will demand to be accompanied by adult everytime...we don't have to do anything....she'll be doing her business...watching tv..playing with L and R..but we shud be around to shadow her...
I can't even go to pee for that matter..we must be visible and also within 3 meters radius from her. Exceed that limit and all hell break loose. She'll just scream her lung out like she got beaten or something...and plus now she added tears into the mix...goshhhh
This has been going on for couple of weeks...but L has catch on with this tactic a week back. Both of them is ganging up together and ensure tok umi and bibik does nothing but watch babytv with them...
Tok umi totally blame this on ummi which i do agree. D does not sleep in the baby cot nowadays..she sleeps with us most of the time coz she does not hold her own bottle during the night. LR already proficient on this skill but D is the clever one. She can hold the bottle during play time...but spread her arm in T shape whenever milk time. She just refuse to hold the bottle..so since each of them wakes up twice every night/morning...that's a minimum of 6 time ummi have to feed them. Since LR can feed on their own..we can just straight away continue our sleep after giving them the milk..but D knows this...she wants the parent to work hard.....not her. So we ended up giving her milk on our bed instead..and since then on she'll just wake up screaming when nobody around her if we put her back in the cot..sighh..thats where the separation anxiety begins....
Pic below depicts those times we have to join watching babytv...pls reserve ur criticism on our parenting skill...yes watching tv is not good...but Tok umi and bibik have other things to do in the house.

So, now ummi already got rid of the big giant lipstick mark with something more generic...i'm a happy camper. But still we haven't find the time to sit down and re-do the layout again. Maybe this weekend if we're lucky...

Whenever going to open house or gathering.. Arrive earlier than the expected time...for us its quite natural thing. We prone to arrive earlier than other guest. For one...u get the best parking spot...currently with the big ass mpv is a pain to park..i would scout the area for the most convenient to park for the shortest distance to the door...coz usually i'll be in charge of the cargo unloading...and my back is not in the best of shape
Lesson no 8
Open house is a good place to get free babysitter...especially for D. She couldnt care less who pick her up..as long as she not watching the ceiling...she's happy. So whenever frens or relative approach me while holding D, i will do the std script with D.."Nak uncle/aunty xxx dukung Dhia tak?"...and i would just shove D in their arms...i don't wait for their answers.... 99% of the time those gullible folks will always fall for it...hehehehehe
Lesson no 9
Referring to lesson no. 8...do not work with L and R..it will not happen....period
Lesson no. 10
Avoid traffic jam...somehow...LDR hates traffic congestion...this hypothesis has been tested twice..so far, it is still valid..couple of times in Plus Hiway heading Alor Setar during Raya...it was raining and alot of fender bender....another one was when i need to pump air on the tires at Petronas in KL..its not traffic jam, but we're not in motion....they would toned down a notch after i press the gas pedal....i dunno why So i would plan ahead of time..using waze..select the best route..with the least traffic... This also applies to riding the stroller..no stopping watsoever...good exercise for me
Lesson no. 11
LDR are like wild stallions..they cherish the freedom..open space..it is always a challenge to put them to bed...they just roll over the cot and mumbles all night...so need to wear them down..till they tired and then you hit them with a bottle of milk...works like a charm
