NEW YEARS EVE 2007
This blog is pass due, I should have written this down right after...coz i cant remember the whole thing.. but i'll try baby.. So that I can tell you all about it when your grown up... Here it goes:
As usual mommy did all the cooking, most of it seafoods this time.. we had prawn in chilli butter sauce, grilled gindara, and spicy squid, theres also litson and of course the usual ham and the overflowing fruits. We went to the groceries early in the morning all of us whis is very unusual since most of the time, papa doesnt go with us anymore. So there the whole family, went to SM San Lazaro. As we walk in the groceries Jea saw the toys and wanted to buy one, she pleaded and pleaded but we managed to trick her to sit in the cart and we wheeled away the toys. After we have all we need from the groceries, the 3 of us Jea, Mommy and papa left. We went back to the toy area and I bought her the pizzan toy set, with pizza slices, slicer, pan, and lots of other accessories. Then we strolled at the mall area, I am trying so hard to distract her so that she will not see the play area.. but my efforts wasnt enough.. and she pleaded and pleaded again to go in. I was trying to explain to her that we will leave soon and she cant go in, I tried bringing her to Tom's World instead but she still insist in going to the play area. So I told her that we will just call papa, so we went back to the cashier area to see if Mama and nong nong is done paying, but we cannot find them. So we decided to go the car already so that we can open her toy already. We waited for a few more minutes and their back. Jea played with her new toy as we go back to the house.
Its pass lunch time when we got home, so we hurriedly prepared lunch and as we ate our lunch. Jea is so preoccupied playing with her pizza toy that she just goes back and forth to me to take a spoonfull of rice and fish.. not the usual lunch time since she eats by herself already, but i let this one pass, so there she goes back and forth sitting on the floor to play standing up again to eat and so on. After lunch, all went to sleep, except the two of us. Jea and me, she played the whole afternoon, and I wasnt able to sleep since she's too noicy pretending to be a witress, a chef, etc.
At dinner time she is still preoccupied with her toys, she's not even noticing the the fireworks everywhere...she didnt ate dinner with us as well... I was trying desprately to make her go to sleep since I know that she will be again too sleepy by midnight and I wanted her to see all the fireworks. At around 7:30pm, Nong nong came bakc from buying the litson, at first she didnt wanted to eat but I still gave her a piece to eat. After, taking it in her mouth, she went back to Tyang's room and lie down there...after a few minutes here she comes again asking for another piece.. again she went back and forth from the room and the table, as she goes back to the room she would lie down on the daybed posing like cleopatra. (that made us laugh) After a few minutes she's already sleepy, maybe because of the full day activity, she went back to me and whispered "mommy sleep nko dun ha" she asked me to turn off the light and I left her there to sleep. Then this is the funny part... she cam eback to me running then told me. "Mommy, tirhan mo ko ng baboy ha!" Hse like it so much that she asked me to save for her.
I tried to sleep too as she slept at around 10:30P.M. i woke up and went to cook the prawn, fish and squid. I woke here up at 11:45 just in time for the climax of the fireworks. SO there she is still sleepy, I carried her to the terrace and as we walked outside I told her not to be scared of the fireworks, its just noisy but it goin to be ok. I asked her if she's scrared and she said no. But, as I put her down to stand at the ballustrade, I noticed her knees trembling her eyes wide, although not crying I can see that she's trying so hard to be brave. So, I took her again and hugged and kissed her, telling constantly that its ok.. Its noisy but its also beautiful as I show her the fireworks.
After that I told her that she will get a new toy if she did not cry, and so I gave her one. Its good that I have spare gifts from Christmas, that calm her down. She got another new toy. She didnt eat, but she was there for all the photo's. Its such a happy night.. we did wacky pose.. and we drank wine.. I know she had a great time too. At about12:30 I put her back to sleep. and I know.. thats the start of a better year for us.. not just for me and Jea but for the whole family.. "HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN!!!!"
