I can’t believe that I have been away from my blog this long. So long that blogger has changed a new interface and right now, I have to get use to it.
April has come and gone. I have just been leading a regular life like most full time working mums do. Allysa has grown and progress quite a fair bit. She is learning to speak more though she still blabbers in sentences. She never fails to surprise me with her expanding vocabulary. She can count a little and remember some phonics too.
I have been trying to cut down on the time I spent with my laptop and mobile when I’m back home. Whenever Ally sees us working with our laptop or iPhone, she will come scurrying over and insist to take over. You know it’s time to cut back when the first word she utters in the morning is “iPhone” or “Elmo”. She loves playing with this Elmo Calls App. It’s like doing Facetime with Elmo. How cute is it? It works as a morning wake up call for Allysa too.
Anyway, we have just battled with fever for the past few days. I guess it’s pretty terrifying for the family whenever the young child experiences fever. We have to be vigilant and make sure that her fever doesn’t go too high especially over the night. I’m really thankful to my mum who has been the greatest Mummy and Grandma to Allysa. She took great care of Allysa these couple of days to monitor her fever - day and night so that I can have an ease of mind at work and have a good night rest. We brought Allysa to the Doc on Sunday and Doc said it’s most likely Roseola. And boy, he was right.
This morning, we were greeted with a measle-looking Allysa. It’s quite a sight(not the most beautiful, I must say) and we can’t help but to laugh at her “new” look. Of course, amazing Allysa took it in stride. How innocently adorable!

And of course, I was tad disappointed that I had to miss a Singapore Mummy Bloggers outing due to the expected illnesses. We were all restless as we could not go out either. Allysa was coop up at home for the past 4-5 days. Although she is ill, but boy, is she still as active. So she has been a little OD on youtube and tv for the past few days. Since I’m off today, I tried to keep her occupied with other activities besides youtube and Tv. We went out and played at the playground(it was just us) twice, did side walk chalk drawing, painted on toilet rolls and played dough and painted again. Of course, we can’t avoid the youtube and Tv for exchange of some peace for dinner.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I can’t believe how fast time flies. I am into my second year as a Mum and the past year has been a journey indeed. Of course, I'm probably going to write another post all about my reflection as a Mom the past year and all the yada yada yada... which also reminds me that in another month’s time, I’m turning 30.
For my new year’s resolution, I thought of doing something significant for myself to celebrate my 30th. Maybe something inspiring, a project that I have wanted to embark on but have been procrastinating due to the 1001 reasons why I CAN’T commit to or maybe to live more consciously by leading a healthier and meaningful life as a woman, daughter, mummy and wife...
maybe sometimes life is not as complicated as we think it is? A simple life can be just as fulfilling.
Do you agree?
