I reluctantly woke up this morning for work.
Dragged my sorry arse around the house when I bumped into Ekiel who was waiting for me outside the bathroom door.
Ekiel: You got work today?
Me: Yes. You want breakfast?
EKiel: I have school today?
Me: No. you want milo?
Ekiel: How many days I cuti?
Me: Two days
Ekiel: Then I go to school one day and cuti again?
Me: You wish larr. Then you school five days and cuti two days again.
Ekiel: It’s not going to get more easy?
Me: Sorry kid. Welcome to my world.
He has problem waking up early in the morning for school.
Ekiel: I have school tomorrow?
Me: Yes, sleep now. Tomorrow you cranky again, don’t want to go to school
Ekiel: Because I cannot wake up
Me: That’s why you must sleep now
Ekiel: But I cannot sleep
Me: So how?
Ekiel: Mommy, why can’t we go to school at night? Then in the morning we sleep
Me: Eee.. go to sleep larr you
Mommy and son sure think alike.
My mom, dad and brother 2 went to KL for brother 2’s convocation.
Ekiel: I miss mama, papa & Boyo.
Ekiel: Because they go KL. I don’t want them go KL
Ekiel: Because I want them here
Ekiel: Because we are family
