Day 2 away from Daddy

We left Singapore together on May 10 [it being 2 days after edward’s 2nd birthday, we had to pay 75% airfare for him!]

The 3-hour flight was not bad, but it was an evening flight [9-11pm] and Oliver could only sleep in the last 30 minutes. WorsT  for Edward, He only managed to fall asleep as the cabin crews were prepaing us for landing 😦

But all in all, both boys were SO GOOD on the flight! (even though it was their usual bedtime)

Daddy stayed with us in vientiane for 6 nights and headed to phnom penh. Mummy is “all alone” with the 2 boys. But of course mummy has help from Sao Tu.

Edward didn’t want daddy to leave (at the airport) and wanted to go through immigration with daddy. He was wiggly and pushing hard when mummy was carrying him. But when mummy said “let’s go to press the lift button”, he stopped! And mummy could even let him walk by himself! Totally forgot about wanting to go with daddy.

We talk on the phone and Skype with no problem. See daddy’s photos on instangram with mo problem. He even said daddy took aeroplane when he saw a photo of daddy with his grandma Ma.

The day was ok. Oliver woke up slightly earlier than usual because Edward made too much noise wanting to poo poo at 5:30 in the morning!

Edward enjoyed being at Sao Tu’s house which is just over the fence. It rained last night so it was muddy, which was a good thing: no dust. He would refuse to come home when mummy goes to pick him up. He was there with Ao Mae as well (great grandmother)

In the evening it was dusty though. but more people to play with as they were already back from school.

Oliver whined in the afternoon, sleepy but didn’t know how to sleep. He was so alert when mummy brought him to the other house. Bouncing on mummy’s thigh and laughing squeaking…. He just needed a change in environment I guess.

Brought him back for bath and bedtime. Still cried in the bath. He is scared of that bathroom. He didn’t cry straight away like he did the past few days but in the end still cried.

Didnt sleep.

Went to get Edward. Gave him a bath… A BIG battle. Haiz… And then bedtime. He was tired. He had an active day. Slept pretty fast.

Oliver fell asleep afterwards.
