Mummy's entry - Life without you

Dear Rye Li,

This can be considered the first time you’re away from me the longest (Bangkok last year don’t count as Mummy was away for work). I’m at home now while you’re away on a holiday with your handsome King (you have upgraded papa as you want to be the princess as usual).

To tell you the truth, Mummy was looking forward to this quiet time (although not that quiet as mei-mei is with me) as the past few nights, you were annoying me with your endless questions and your usual dilly-dallying stubborn self. The 2 nights before your trip, Mummy punished you by not letting you watch your TV before bedtime and you were not very happy with this.

It’s been only 1 night you have been away from home and Mummy misses you so much! In fact, yesterday itself when you left, Mummy already missed you!

You sounded really happy on the phone and Mummy is proud of you that you are all grown up now and sad at the same time too as you don’t really need me there with you. I guess it’s also probably you’re having so much fun without Mummy restricting you to a lot of things I usually do at home. I know you didn’t finish that whole ice cream nor ate so much junk food like what you said just now on the phone – as I know papa made you say that just to make me worry.

Mummy is happy that you’re happy and having a blast at the beach. I’m looking forward to seeing you after your holiday as I want to give you a big hug and kiss (Mummy feels guilty for punishing you now especially when papa forgot to take along the Barney DVD you so wanted to watch!).

But you don’t annoy Mummy so much okay?! And stop being such a smart Alec, er Jane and keep your comebacks to yourself okay?! I’m still dumbfounded with your reply that night …”Mummy, you don’t shout at me ok, after (wards) my ears pain ah!”. God knows where you learnt such comebacks from but you should keep these when you have started work in the future as these would do you good then. :D

Mummy got a slight confession to make – I’m enjoying your side of the bed (actually, it’s papa’s side but it has been yours for the past one year) and also, I’m enjoying your TV time as I get to watch all my shows now. Luckily, mei-mei doesn’t know how to ask for TV yet so I’m enjoying these nights to myself. But mummy still misses you though.

I will see you soon yea….Mummy loves you….sooooooooo much!

p.s. I hope papa is taking loads of pictures as we need to update your blog!
