The girls have been secretive in the past week. They talk in whispers and they walk like crab in front of me (walking sideways) acting suspiscious and hiding things behind their backs. As much as they try to do things not to make me aware, I knew what they were up to because they whisper so loud, act too weird and my younger one tries to sneak colour paper IN FRONT of me and hide behind her back thinking these actions are invinsible. Well, nothing escapes mom's eagle eye.
They were making me a gift (stringing a necklace of Beads) and making a Valentine Card for me of course. And I have to pretend nothing happens of course, not to spoil their fun. And I had to also pretend nothing happened when I was on the dining table and my elder girl was still stringing her beads under the table while eating breakfast. Once she dropped the chain and I could hear the beads dropping one by one onto the floor... and although I wanted to help her pick them up, I had to turn a deaf ear on it since she pretended nothing happened but her eyes and mouth open wide when it happened!
Then this morning, they both came to me with a wrapped envelope sized gift for me.. Mommy, we have something for you... I opened it and saw their lovely patient gift of a beady necklace and cards they painstakingly took a week to make for me. I was so touched and happy. Gave them hugs and kisses.
It even has a string of word - MUMMY.. I was so touched.
Oh I also bought them Valentine gifts... something they both WANTED BADLY! A Ben 10 watch with sound effects! They were both ecstatic of course!! They wanted to zap everything they see and they spoke in unusual alien languages...
