Happy Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day. The girls gave me a card they made at school and a single rose. It wasn't a real flower and I was the one who gave them the money to buy it in the 1st place, but it's the thought that counts.

Because of our late night last night, I woke up late. I decided to take my doctor's advice and do a bit of walking. What better place to walk about but a shopping mall, right? We set out from home around 6pm and decided to have an early dinner. I was craving for Chillies so that's where we went. We shopped around for a baby car seat but none were up to our satisfaction. Well, actually one was but it was damn expensive!! Like RM2,500. We went into this high-end baby store and they were selling Moses baskets for like RM350!! It's a basket, for crying out loud. It's not like it has a bottle holder or anything.

The girls had fun. I caved in to their demands for a new watch. Dina, of course picked one with pink flowers, while Dania picked a blue one with fishes on it. Each cost RM10, but I gave the girls strict instructions not to bring the watches to school or the playground. The last ones I bought them only lasted a week before the straps came off.

My mom and aunts have been calling me for updates. I told them I might get induced this Wednesday depending on the situation. My mom said she had a dream that I had already given birth. Hahaha, it seems like she's more anxious about this than I am.

I want to take this opportunity to wish every mother and mother-to-be a very Happy Mother's Day.
