Time with Mummy

I had last Friday off in lieu of the King's Birthday on Saturday. Hubby was working that day so I took Elyssa out for a full day.

We started our day with a leisurely "kopitiam" breakfast, then shopping, then lunch with daddy (met up with him as he left his wallet in my car), more shopping and then had a nice afternoon tea. Nice mummy-daughter bonding time :)

Shopping wise, it was pretty unproductive (I ended up with only one pair of workpants!) but I really enjoyed the time spent together. It was pretty easy to handle Elyssa alone. When I tried on clothes, she happily entertained herself with the mirror. When I walked around, she obediently walked by my side. When it came to food time, well... as usual she was happy. There were occasional cranky times but it was manageable.

I also discovered a cafe called "Departure Lounge" and I absolutely loved it! Spent quite some time there just reading a book and enjoying my cafe latte and carrot cake :)

As expected, the day ended much too soon!

The next morning, it was also a mummy-daughter affair as I brought her for a meet-up with 2 of my friends and their kids. Well, both of us had a good time! I enjoyed yakking and catching up with my friends. Elyssa enjoyed playing in the pool, eating sandwiches, watching tv and playing with the toys that were in my friend's condo (there were LOT of toys -enough to start a playschool!).

In the swimming pool - it was an unplanned dip, so she went in with her panties and a borrowed t-shirt :)

So that was one and half days of "Mummy & Elyssa" time. I really love this stage where I can bring her out on my own :)

Elyssa is very 'guai'. It's a good mother-daughter bonding time indeed. I'm glad I have Gwen around with me and I always enjoy going out with her alone. :)
