I am sure every parent has this experience. There will be always a smile on your face when you hear your child(ren) is/are laughing their chest out.
I have never blog about how contagious it is…. I miss Yvette’s laughter since D left us last Saturday. She is more emotionally stable now over her Papa’s departure but still she rarely broken into laughter.
For the first time of this week, I heading home without much stress and knowing Yvette should be very happy now.
Not a single kid like to be the last to go home. I always make it the point and ensure Yvette won’t be the last one. (That is the reason why keeping the CC nearest to home help.) When D is around, Yvette will be picked up by him at 6 in the evening. Now she is leaving the CC at 6.25 pm. I am trying my best to travel there as fast as I could but sadly this is the earliest I could pick her up. (I usually leave office at 6.05 pm to 6.10 pm. Walk to MRT, 7 mins Train ride and then walk to CC will usually take up another 15 mins.)
Today, so happen my sister was on Medical Leave and she texted me whether I want her to pick Yvette up from CC. Of course I said Yes to her. I am very sure Yvette will be very happy too.
They picked her up at 5 plus and then they went to buy some food before they headed back home. (I only cooked two dishes today. I asked my sister to buy more food as her boyfriend is joining us for dinner.)
When I was at the door, I could hear Yvette laughing behind the door. When I opened the door, she too engrossed with the activity she was doing with my sister’s boyfriend and had never noticed I was back home. But I didn’t waited for too long, she greeted me with one of her biggest Megawati Smile.
The rest of the evening was really relax for me. My sister had tidy up the house for me. Washed all the dirty plate that left in the sink by my FIL . We had dinner together and I have them to babysit Yvette while I get those ingredients ready for tomorrow dinner.
I still have time to play ball with Yvette. Yvette had so much fun. Some pictures here are blur but I guess, most importantly a moment is being captured. I simply love her laughter!
In the midst of our kicking ball session, she knee down and started to count down the number of days left. I am very sure she miss all these moments with D.
Yvette, Papa will be back soon, another 9 days more!
I took a video clip when we were playing the ball with her. (Did I ever say she is obsessed with ball since she was a baby) This video recorded down her laughter. A moment I wish it can last forever, EVER.
I am counting all these blessing day by day!
