Hubby flew off at 5am today and my night mare begins once again.
This morning, I woke up to find my son searching for his school belt. He kept insisting that the helper kept it but it is definitely not true. I told him that he should be responsible for it rather than depend on the helper. After all, it is HIS belt.
Went round searching for the belt but as he has not taken his breakfast, I told him to finish it up first as we are running late for school.
He ignored me of course and continued his search, mumbling all the time. I then realised that he hasn't brush his teeth. Thus, I told him to do so immediately. He went into the toilet, close the down, less than 1 min he was out. He insisted that he brushed and even challenged me to smell his toothbrush. Being mom after all, I demanded to smell his breathe instead and true to my instinct he didn't do it. Told him to do it with the door open and by then he was really upset and so was I.
Time is a factor in the morning as I have to send my girl to J’s house first. If I am late, J’s daughter will be late as well. I told him to hurry finished up his milk and told him that if he doesn't speed up, I will have to leave without him.
He started his tantrum by lying on the sofa frustrated. I told him that instead of arguing with me, he should take the time to speed up. He chose to ignore me and continue with his mumbling. By now I was already furious and decided to wait in the car. Sent him an sms to tell him that if he still wants me to send him to school, he needs to run.
When I saw him downstairs, he was obviously taking his time to come to the car. Instead of running, he was walking real slowly. I lost my cool, and drove off without him! (after coming home to double check with my helper, she told me that he was wearing his shoes very slowly despite her telling him to hurry).
I so much wanted to take a loop back after I dropped my girl off to J's house but I decided against it.
I need to teach him about responsibility and not taking things for granted. He is NOT the emperor whereby everyone has to wait upon him.
I text the teacher to inform her about this morning event and to be prepared for an eventful day. True enough he was late for school and he will be punished.
I seriously hope he will learn but I had a strong sense that he will be blaming me instead. Haiz.....
Enough of my let out, and poor you have to listen to my frustration. Let's me share something happy now.
We had Roti Prata for breakfast yesterday and since my aunts has got more savoury tooth, I did actually that for our breakfast this morning.
With my success with Penang Laska, I am now more confident in handling other recipes. So let me present to you Java Soto. Again, one of the herbs was difficult to find but I had since located it in Geylang Serai.
I have done two versions. One with potato and the other with yellow noodle. If you don't fancy having potato as your food staple, go for the noodle. It is equally delicious.
Another recipe keeper!
