I am probably the wet blanket of the crowd now…..especially so when it’s time of the year when the whole world (almost) is preparing to welcome the Lunar New Year.
David made it back in time to celebrate my birthday. Stayed for a week then flew off this morning. Yes, this morning and yes, he will NOT be back to spend Chinese New Year with us. The kids still have no idea that Daddy will NOT be around to spend Chinese New Year with us. Couldn’t bring myself to break the news to them yet, will try to bridge the topic when I am not feeling so emotional. We were all well aware that he may miss big hoidays when he took on this job but who knew it would actually be so painful. I am sure it hurts me as much as it hurts him but work is work. We are all working hard for our kid’s future.
Well, we will not be doing much this CNY, perhaps take this opportunity to rest. Anyways, Happy New Year to all my friends and have a great CNY! :)
On a lighter and happier note, RayAnne woke up feeling happier to go to school because her brother would be staying back in school for his CCA and that he would be go home together with her. Knowing that she would see her kor at the recess area and be going home at the same time made her happy. No matter how much their views and thoughts could differ these days or how hard they fight and complain about each other, they still badly want and need each other’s company. More so the little one as she is still adjusting to a entirely new environment and having her brother around makes her feel at eased. I am happy too……
