Tonight, we sleep in the guest room

We were all in the master bedroom today after lunch with Darling showering Ethan to freshen him up before his piano lesson. Yeah, Darling showered Ethan while I was lying on the bed getting people to watch my YouTube video >_<  YES, Darling was at HOME at lunch time! Ain’t I lucky or what? We are lucky to have Darling coming home for lunch EVERY day! Must be my cooking is THAT good or our house is really comfortable *big grin* 

As I was lying there busy campaigning, I suddenly heard a “Toot, toot, toot” sound and suddenly the air-cond was automatically switched off. I didn’t think too much of it as I thought Darling could have switched it off, I mean he could have set a timer or something-lah!

As both Darling and Ethan emerged out of the master bathroom I casually told him the air-cond’s off and got the cheek to ask him why he set timer in broad daylight? He normally only utilizes the timer when we go to bed at night as I can’t stand the air-cond being switched on until the wee hours in the morning. 

Then he said, “NO I did not set timer”. He took the remote and again switched the air-cond off (just to make sure it’s really OFF).

We never thought much about it until later at night when we were preparing Ethan for bed. We went on with our normal routine – me and him brushing teeth together, Darling, Ethan and I each take a story book and reading it out loud for all to hear.. and then.. wondered, “WHY SO HOT WAN?!!”

Darling looked at the air-cond unit and saw that it’s not working. He asked me, “When you switched on the air-cond, was it working?” I was like, “Err… when I switched it ON, am I SUPPOSED to see if it’s working or NOT?!!”

Darling rolled his eyes in disbelief! He uttered something like, “kenot believe this girl only know how to press one button and expect everything to work just fine not even bothering to see if it is actually switched ON”

I mean, come ON lah! That’s what girls do, don’t they? When we drive, do we even bother to check if the car has enough fuel or the tyres are nicely inflated? What? You girls do? OK, so maybe I’m the ONLY one who doesn’t so THAT’s the reason I DON’T drive! >_<

Cut long story short, we can’t sleep in that room tonight can we? I mean I can-lah but my two boys can’t sleep without air-cond wan. So we migrated to the guest room. 

I only have 2 single beds in the guest room but there are 3 of us. How?  We took our mattress from the master bedroom and laid it on the floor next to those beds so we can ALL sleep together. It’s been sometime since we all sleep together. Ethan has always slept on his own since the day he was born. He slept in his own cot and upgraded to his own bed. Never does he sleep in between Darling and I except when we are back in my hometown. 

Ethan got all excited with the new arrangement. To him, it’s a slumber party. He eagerly took his pillows and sheets over to the guest room.

 

Tonight, I’m going to have my baby close to me. I’m going to hug him like my bolster like I’ve never hugged him before for I know, it won’t be long before he grows up, gets married and leaves the nest..

    Suppose you can see the turn on light and the air guide should be moving when you turn it on. But it is good for the whole family to snuggle together in the same bed.

    Changing sleeping place really can make tour kiddos excited one, even if it is just changing it to the living hall. They feel like it’s an adventure. ;p
