Hubby was off to work for next 3 hours later in the early noon. I decided to bring Yvette out myself.
Off we went to Takashimaya.
I always find I spend more quality time with Yvette when we are out. At home, I always end up doing housework or reading newspaper and I leave Yvette alone playing herself sometimes. She will come to me when she needs myself or when she is bored playing alone.
Again this was the first shopping trip alone with Yvette after she gained confidence in walking.
There were many of window display along our way from Orchard MRT to Taka. And I thought she will want to walk from Wisma onward. My guess was wrong. She wanted to be carried. Strange! I thought she loves looking into the window display. Her desire of wanting of wanting to be on the ground when I am at the ladies shoes dept at Taka. Oh, she really into shoes! (She was very excited pointing the shoes inside the window display to us when we were in ION two days ago.)
After getting a pair of new shoes for myself; we went up to the baby/kid department at third floor. I got a pair of new shoes for Yvette too using our Taka voucher. Hubby wanted me to get a new pair of shoes for Yvette with a thicker sole.
Then we headed Kinokuniya for the two books higher recommended by my gyane – Eat to Live, The Revolutionary Formula for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss & Disease Proof Your Child, Feeding Kids Right by Dr Joel Fuhrman, M.D.
It’s about lunch time; I called my niece who was working nearby for lunch.
We met up at Soup Spoon at Paragon.
I told her I have just fought 4 hours of battle during the last 2 hours. It’s not easy to manage Yvette now. (I recalled one mummy telling me I will be even more tired when Yvette learns how to walk during one of our regular library trip.)
Actually Yvette did not really move around a lot while she was walking. She just walk or sometimes trying to run. I got so tired because sometimes she wanted to walk and sometimes she wanted to be carried. So perpetually I am bending my body all the times!
After lunch, I proceeded to the supermarket to get a package of “original” Cheerios. (Thanks for telling me Sam. Jayden’s mum only highly recommended this brand to me but it was my decision to get the Frosted Cheerios.)
We went up to the fifth floor of Paragon. (I love coming here. There are plenty of baby and kids’ stuffs available.) I stocked up her drink again and buy a set of word flash card from ELM Tree before we headed home.
Yvette dozed off in my niece boyfriend’s car on our way home.
