After a week of 6am mornings, the latest I could struggle to sleep in till this morning was 7am.
Amazing that just a week ago my mental capacity could not cope with anything before 8am (I was very grumpy and would sound curse-like in all my replies), but after a positive tune in mindset as a result of the seminars that I’ve been tasked to attend, suddenly I can’t seem to do anything bed-related after 8am.
This morning, seeing how I didn’t have any more seminars to rushed to, I went to my little man’s room and greeted him a cheery good morning (2 weeks of homebound while on the mend seems to have shifted his sleep habits by an hour earlier too!). I asked if he wanted me to snuggle up with him seeing how I finally had a morning free-up from any events or seminars. Guess what he said?
“Mummy, I want to go school. See Kai, Yu Heng, Teacher Doris, Xu lao shi…(basically rattled off some names) Change diaper then go school okay mummy?”. My emotional quotient took a nose dive. Here I was thinking that my little fella would jump at any chance of spending with me but instead…!!! So as I grudgingly hide my disappointment and got him ready for school on a happy note, I realized how much he has matured over the week that I’ve been away from him.
As he wore his shoes and waited by the door for papa, he gave me a nice big kiss & hug followed by “Miss you mummy. see you later mummy”. My emotional quotient rose by 50%. This little fella wasn’t shy to show his sensitive side too. True enough with him off to school, I did get off to a more productive start clearing most things on the ever growing to-do list. I guess he did made the right decision for the both of us today.
Off to a more productive and event-free weekend 🙂
