It had been mad busy in the last two weeks. Lunar New Year rendered the usual hectic schedule even busier than usual. It did not help that I was sick and was sleeping doubly much. We completed last minute shopping on the Chu Xi, rushed home to bathe the kids and made it for reunion dinner at a rather late hour.
X had a mighty good time because he was allowed to snack on all the new year goodies. Z embraced the festival too. He was over the moon with opening of the floodgates to sweets, sweets and more sweets.
It was the first year for Z to participate in the lunar new year with an inkling of what was happening around him. He was barely 2 months’ old in the very first year and was a totting toddler a year later. By the time he had better awareness, he celebrated the lunar new year in Paris and a year later, he was stuck with me at home because I was having my confinement. It took him a while to get used to saying the auspicious words when receiving the red packets.
For the first day, we followed my dad’s itinerary and ended off the night at my aunt’s place. For the second day, we had more visitings, managed to squeeze in a playdate for Z and concluded with watching ‘Robocop’. Z was much impressed and X was just as intrigued. The latter made through at least 100min before he got fidgety. On the third day, Z had swim class and we had our friends over for a swim date.
With that, the long CNY weekend concluded.
