Last night, Mrs B had to work late. Like very very late. I think she came home only about 3.30am. No thanks to year end deadline... betul-betul DEADline!
So, there I was, the MAN himself. Having a home-alone dinner and looking after two very active kids plus washing the dishes later on. I was half expecting Mrs B to come home by 10.30pm so that she can breastfeed baby SueAnne but alas, it was not to be.
By 11pm, baby SueAnne was really sleepy, hungry and already showing her baby-grouchiness. She wanted to be carried ALL the time. The moment I put her down she will wail with outstretch arms until I pick her up again.
I then made her a bottle of powdered milk but she didn't want to take it. I was exasperated and lost on what to do next. On my arms is one really hungry and sleepy baby but she doesn't want her milk or sleep! I then put her down on a dining chair and that was when my 5yo Suzanne took the bottle from me and fed baby SueAnne!
I was naturally shocked and pleased and relieved at the same time. For one, at least baby is taking the milk and two, Suzanne is helping to feed baby. Seeing that baby is sucking vigorously away at the bottle, I took baby to lie down on the sofa bed and asked Suzanne to continue feeding her. Later, Suzanne told me that sometimes at the babysitter's place, Suzanne had to feed baby because SueAnne didn't want either auntie or uncle babysitter to feed her. Talk about a picky baby, and thank God for Suzanne for being a good sister to baby. :)
After that, I tried to get them to sleep. Suzanne slept almost immediately but for baby... very the susah one. Buai-buai in my arms with my sweet-macho-lullabies from 12am to 1.45am, then only tidur! I sensed that baby wanted to wait up for Mrs B because she wanted to stay near the bedroom window and no where else. I also tidur'd beside baby, still in my working clothes!
Tonight, Mrs B is working late again.... I think I need a PS2 soon. You say these two got "la-lang" or not? :P
Belacans says... "PS2! PS2! PS2!" :P
