My Full Time Job In San Jose

FULL TIME GRANDMA... LOL...

I have been looking forward to seeing my grandson ever since he was born and I thought that it would not be possible at all until he knows how to run.  LOL.. That was what I told my son, with the never ending Covid virus, we did not know when we would be allowed to travel.  

Now I am really here, it has been more than a month now and I am more or less settled down, being a grandmother and nanny, two in one.  LOL... How many years since I last take care of a baby?  More than two decades and I am back to refreshing course with this active boy!  He is going to be six months and still needs full attention to his needs.  So my real job here is just to look at him... look after him.... 

My "job" starts around 8am, I prepare breakfast in the morning and then breathe in the morning air while waiting for my "baby boss" to wake up.  He is usually bubbly in the morning and as evening comes, he becomes more cranky cos he faces more difficulty to sleep throughout the night.  Old granny here does not "jaga" nights, I would be very groggy if I do not have enough sleep. 

In between his naps, I quickly prepare lunch, simple ones for my daughter-in-law who works from home and for myself.  That goes for dinner too.... and time seems to fly each day.  That is why my blog has to be put on hold till I am really-really free ... 

Morning breakfast on most mornings.... 
Noodles for lunch.... 
Yes, the pantry is full of dry noodles....
I just have to prepare the ingredients to go with the noodles.... 
On some evenings, my son would buy back dinner.... 
Over here, there are always fries to go with fried stuff....
On this particular day, we had our dinner in the garden....

  2. Ho mia! Ho mia! We say in Hokkien! Meaning, a good life!!! Aha!!! At least your DIL works from home so you are not left alone with the baby. Always good to have someone else around.

    Your noodles look very good, the first one.

  5. I am sure this is one job which you enjoy very much. You are going to miss your baby boss when it is time to return to Malaysia.
