coolest kids ever, precious moments

The best and the worst

Now that things have settled somewhat and we’ve all had a chance to get used to having a new baby around, we have a better idea of what life with 3 kids is like.

Especially on weekends when everyone is around.

I’d describe our weekends with 3 kids as both the best of times and the worst of times.

We can’t, for example, go out for a leisurely meal like most other people because there’ll be nothing leisurely about it. Or much eating for that matter. One kid will want to be carried, one kid will be ripping open wet tissues to wipe the cutlery (then her own face), one kid will be getting acquainted with all the germs under the table and we’ll glance at each other and immediately regret having been so bold as to attempt a lunch at a public place at all.

Somehow, we’ll manage (barely) to shovel food down everyone’s throats and breathe a sigh of relief that nothing was smashed or spilt or destroyed in the process.

But then on weekends where we’re crazy enough to venture out with 3 kids, we also get heart-melting moments like these.

‘Nuff said.

      Actually not quite.. his head is still very wobbly but he seems to like it so we put him in the bumbo for a short while everyday. One of us has to be there to watch his head just in case :)

    Eating out with my 2 boys also usually involve a lot of under-the-breath mutterings of “behave NOW” in my fiercest whisper. So I think you guys make parenting easy. LOL! :)

    Gorgeous pic btw!

      Hahaha I do muttering and death glare too, which they conveniently disregard when we’re out. I think they know that they can get away with more shenanigans when we’re out.

      Congrats on #3 by the way!!

    Hi Daphne,

    I just gave birth to baby boy last month and I must say, I enjoy reading your post a lot and keep waiting to read the new one. Especially post on Baby Finn! He’s so adorable. Keep posting!

      Hey Shiella, congrats on your baby boy!! Hope you’re enjoying motherhood.

    I guess that’s simply how life is served up to us. Best and Worst. Bitter and Sweet. Good and Bad. But the Good stuff makes everything else worthwhile. And that REALLY is a precious moment between your 3 kids. So worth it!

      Nicely put! It’s probably the bad that makes the good even better.

    Aw man, that 2nd photo is a keeper!

    • Reply Daphne November 7, 2012 at 5:19 pm

      Yeah we’re compiling some shots to print and frame in their room. That one is definitely making the cut.

    Simple but sweet moments. Both photos are well taken. In the first Finn looked a bit troubled by two passionate kissers :-)

      Thanks Abby! Finn actually doesn’t mind them so much. He’s used to all the kisses and attention from the 2 big ones.

    Love the second photo, kor kor and jie jie asking Finn to pose wahaha. Mummy has drill them well.

    If it helps, I am always apprehensive whenever we need to dine outside.
    So hard to enjoy our food.

    Please pose cute baby pics every Monday to help us chase away the blues :)

      Hahaha they are quite experienced with taking pictures, but it depends on their mood too. Some days they just refuse to have their picture taken.
