Tiger mother? Lioness more like it…

“Stop sulking-lah! Menyampah you know Mommy see your mulut terbalik like that! Who dropped the colour pencil? Mommy is it? No kan?! Who dropped it, that person-lah go and pick it up! Don’t expect Mommy to pick up everything you dropped! Mommy cooked, feed, clean and everything for you dy… The least you could do is pick up your own colour pencil OKAY?!! Mommy is NOT your SLAVE!!! Cry?! Cry what? Other babies not enuf milk to drink, no clothes to wear oso tak cry, why YOU cry?????  Aaargh!!! Mommy headache-lah!!!!”
In the softest voice possible he muttered, “Nevermind-lah Mommy, I will sayang you. *hugs*”
That is ME! The lioness mother venting out in frustration! My headache is so severe I wonder if it’s migraine! In situation like this, I’d appreciate it if I could lock myself in a dark room with total silence so I can recuperate but I can’t. Not this time as Ethan is around. Try as I might to stay calm but the slightest ‘demand’ from him will trigger the anger button!
I can’t lock myself in a dark room with total silence so the next best thing is to switch on Word World for him so that I can at least lay down on the couch. Mana tau, I ter-fall asleep… And when I woke up, Darling showed me this…
Darling came home to find Ethan on top of me like that.. :( Poor boy. I vented out my frustrations to him  macam machine gun yet without fail he kept on coming back to me for hugs and more. Sigh.. I wish I will get better real soon :(

    You are blessed with such a loving boy! It's ok to vent a bit(once in a blue moon), I think this thoughtful boy will understand!

    I had experienced migraines before and it's like hell! Don't wanna experience it again! I think yours is a headache and not migraine right? Cos with migraine, you won't get relief even when you sleep! Anyway, Ethan is so cute and sweet : )
