Sour Sweet Smile

I cannot leave this overnight.. i went in to explain to her.. i cannot see an unhappy face .. i wanna sleep at peace... i .... i............i.......................
I went in to her room... after some moments of togetherness with her, she managed to smile again... my son smiled too... .... both of us "disturbed" her till she cracked her laughter... we were pummeling each other once again...

Tension melted... i m at peace again.. breathing is normal.... for now... till the next round....

  7. Between Mom and doter, where got "kak yeh sau" one? One minute unhappy the next will be tickling each other already. Well, sometimes we do feel tension at times but yes, as a Dad, I feel the same way too.

  8. See, it worked out! You gave your daughter "some space" as well as yourself from the dilemna and by going to her it sounds as if you are back on the right track with each other! You did a good job!

  12. nothing is as hard as it seems. it might be frustrating at some point, but after a while, you'll just see how stupid it was for u to be so stressed about it.

  13. Glad that the water is calm now. Pray that God will lead you all to a good Add Maths tuitor soon, a good one that she will enjoyed and learn more. A good teacher do have an impact to the student studies. It happens to me and my Add Maths. God is good, He will show the way :)
    Cheers...

  32. Your daughter is very lucky, that you still make effort to talk to her when you're moody. My mum not liddat. Every time oso nid me to pujuk her. It's harder to talk to her nowadays after she hit 50. :( I don't know why! Always moody, always bad mood, sometimes, when I call her on the phone oso she can snap at me. I just dun understand it!

    I used to think that my daddy is the fierce, moody and grumpy one...but these days...my daddy is the easy one to deal with!

  33. Glad that u and daughter have patched up.

    I'm sure you want the best for your daughter.

  34. gratitude: thank God... it is just one of those days.. on and off it will come back... btw, how is the sweet sour pork? hehehe..


    mamamia: and another day will come again :)


    slavemom: that is me.. dont know whether good or not.. i must settle indifferences if possible within that day itself..


    cleffairy: i think fernie doesnt realize that..or maybe she expects me to be better or not good enough.. i hv my moods too.. sometimes i really feel like throwing something.. it is the age, i guess.. so dont blame yr mum.. i never wrote about it.. so that doesnt mean i dont feel that.. hahhhaa..


    jessie: i m learning to be a better mum... and she is teaching me in a way...
