The kids received some Xmas gifts on Xmas eve!
Dh's business partner gave it to the kids, asked Dh to bring home. Something like transformers, it can be modified, and it has sounds and lights. The kids loved them of course.
I was initially still tolerant of them until the next day, when I was faced with 12 hours of the blasting noises of shooting and fighting sounds emitted from both toys when the buttons were pushed.
My grocery shopping hours have been lengthened cos of the 2 kids' presence. But we get to enjoy KFC brunch with H. Most branches of KFCs have kids play area. But usually they are very crowded with kids wearing open crotch pants, so I normally don't allow them to play there. That Tues, it was empty, since local kids are in school, so they had a lot of fun.
The 3/4 sized cello that Dh is going to string up for his niece in Perth. It costs many many times the price in Australia, so Dh's sis wants to get one in China. Dh says he cannot find good-brand strings here so he will buy the strings in Spore on our trip back.
Ds1 stood beside it to pretend play and it looked like a double bass instead, he being shorter! The kids had so much laughs out of this unfinished cello.
Later on ds1 pretended it was a giant guitar, sitting on the floor with the cello lying sideways on his lap and strumming away. ds2 laughed and laughed away.
rainbows every day, do not worry for the morrow
