Things Jerry Says #17 – Footboard.

By |September 4th, 2014|

I should really blog about Things Jerry Says” more frequently. The kid really says the funniest things all the time. Some of which, is beyond hilarious. So, today’s post is about the footboard. Do you know what is a footboard?

Honestly, I didn’t even realize that the word really exist, because we hardly use it.

So, this happened last night when I was putting Jerry to bed. As usual, he isn’t the sort that would just go down and sleep. He will wiggle and roll in bed and do all sorts of stunts in bed, before he can actually drift off to sleep. One habit of his that I totally cannot stand is putting his foot on the headboard, and the fact the he always, I mean ALWAYS sleep in the opposite direction of the bed, like legs where the head is supposed to be…

I decided I have had enough and decided […]

Things Jerry Says #16 – Falling in love.

By |August 15th, 2014|

It’s been a while since I updated with a Things Jerry Says post! It’s not that he hasn’t been sprouting funny things, but I was too preoccupied with surviving life that I haven’t dedicated much time to blog things down. I have quite a number of drafts sitting around, but I wanted to share this first!

Recently, we have been asking Jerry about his school and his classmates, and naturally, out of curiousity… we asked about the female students in his class. Like who is the prettiest etc. One girl always stood out. Her name is Rachel, and we know that Jerry is quite fond of her. So one of those days, we (more specifically, daddy) decided to be a little naughty and probed more..

Daddy (D): Jerry, does Rachel like you?
Jerry (J): Yes!
D: How do you know?
J: Yes… (not understanding what daddy is really asking for)
D: Did she […]

Conversations with the husband #14 – Sleeping Beauty

By |June 29th, 2014|

We woke up bright and early today. It’s a long day ahead, planing a day out at Universal Studio with my mum and my brother and then, attending a wedding dinner tonight. I was the first to wake, followed by Jerry who insist on snuggling with me the moment he opens his eyes. Gonna love these moments because I know they won’t last forever.

I woke the husband and then cheeky Jerry decided to hide under the covers when i attempted to take a picture of him. I keep flicking the covers off only to have him pull it back on to cover his face. This went on for a while and triggered the following conversation.

D: What are you doing?

C: I’m trying to take a picture of my sleeping beauty. Don’t disturb me.

D: Sleeping beauty?! (sounding incredulous)

C: Uh huh.. yar…

D: You mean Sleeping NAUGHTY..

C: Hahahahahahaa. No. My Sleeping Beauty.

Trust the […]

Things Jerry Says #15 – I will fight the mosquito!

By |June 22nd, 2014|

For some strange reason, both my kids  have been attacked by a lot of mosquito bites lately. I am guessing that the area around my mum and mother-in-law’s place is infested with mosquitoes and the kids have been coming home with mosquito bites. I personally hate mosquito bites, they are so itchy and they sometimes can itch up to days and more often than not, they leave a mark behind mostly from scratching, and sometimes, the skin just turns darker at the site of the bite and the legs looks spotted.

Today. Jerry is complaining about the mosquito bites on his legs and I wish I can do something for him (except applying some cream/ointment which frankly, doesn’t quite help) and the conversation goes..

J: Mummy, my leg pain pain!
C: Where?
J: Here! (points and show me)
C: What happened?
J: The mosquito bite me. The mosquito naughty. I want to fight the mosquito.
C: […]

Conversations with the husband #13 – Our Harry Potter

By |June 8th, 2014|

And so, the morning right after my son fell down from the bed and became Harry Potter, the husband and I were both feeling super groggy and sleep deprived but managed to struggle to get to work.

That morning, the kiddo looked better and doesn’t seemed bothered anymore, which in my opinion, is super good news. I snapped a picture of him and posted this on Instagram before we left the house.

The husband drop me off at the train station every morning and somehow, the following conversation started in the car while driving on the road.

D: Eh, you know? You now know have a story for your blog with Jerome falling down.
C: What story?
D: The story goes…. Jerome Potter. At 12 midnight, Lord Voldemort came into the bedroom and pushed Jerome off the bed. Jerome survived the fall, but not without a lightning scar on […]

Things Jerry Says #14 – the Sadist

By |May 28th, 2014|

I came home one day and was looking at my aquarium, checking if the fishes are ok. It’s a new tank so some deaths everyday seems to be the norm. Unfortunately, there was > 5 fishes dead, and i was really sad.

Jerry is pushing me and trying to get the best view of the aquarium as well when the following conversation took place.

C: jerry, don’t push me. it is not very nice of you to push me. Can you say excuse me? Anyway, mama is v sad. The fishes died! (shifts aside and points to one dead fish)
J: mama! Jerry happy!!!!! (Burst out laughing while looking at the dead fish)
C: Huh!  The fishes died, how can you be happy?! The lives are lost.
J: hahaha.  The fishes die, jerry happy!!!

Uh oh. I dunno if he has acquired some sadist behaviour or that he cannot really understand about life and death […]

Things Jerry Says #13 – Greedy kid wants chocolate.

By |May 21st, 2014|

Things Jerry says #13 happened on a day when we were all at home chilling and just not doing much. Daddy emptied his pockets and left a $1 gold coin lying around our dinner table. We never thought much about it but Jerry appeared in front of me some time later..

J: (shows me the $1 in his palm) can you open for me please?
C: Huh? Open? What is there to open?
J: Can you open the chocolate please?
C: (after 2 secs of silence) Orrrr.. jerry! This is not a chocolate coin! This is the real money!
J: Mummy, but.. I want to eat. *insert sad face*

Totally funny. Ever since CNY, the kid really loves the gold chocolate coins and have to get his hands on one every time he sees it somewhere. Somehow, he seems to think that our Singapore $1 coin is one of them chocolates! The good thing about it […]

Things Jerry Says #12 – Assholes

By |May 16th, 2014|

Things Jerry says #12!

So, my kid turned 3 years old a week back and I thought it would be cool to ask him his age and see if he would reply.. and guess what? I’m in for quite a shock! The conversation goes…

Mama (M): Jerry, how old are you?
Jerry (J): 3 assholes
M: Jerry, speak properly and don’t mumble. 3 YEARS old.
J: Orrr… 3 years old.

I’ll be really worried if he had 3 assholes! But the husband and me did have a good laugh. Actually, I called the husband into the room and repeated my questions at him to replay his reply for the husband before I jumped in to correct him. Thought it’s too good a joke not to share with the husband and have him experience/hear it for himself.

P.s. he is able to pronounce it properly now, so please don’t attempt asking him and have […]

Conversations with the husband #12 – 天使 (Angel)

By |May 7th, 2014|

OK. This isn’t a new conversation but one that has happened maybe a year back or more? I thought I blogged it down before, but I can’t seemed to locate it on the blog (so weird!) so maybe I really didn’t. It’s a really funny and memorable one and I recently got reminded about it while talking to a friend.

It happened on a night where Jerry slept early and the husband and I were just chilling around (with our gadgets) in the bed with the sleeping kid wedged between us.

D: Look at him sleep. He looks like a 天使 (angel) hor? (looks at kid adoringly)
C: Hmmm.. yeah.

(the next day the kid was so naughty and angered the husband so much… he was shouting and scolding the kid non stop)

C: Hey, hey. Chill. Don’t keep shouting at him.
D: He make me so angry!
C: Hmmm… didn’t you say he is a 天使 (angel) […]

Things Jerry Says #11 – Smart aleck in making.

By |May 4th, 2014|

(Husband munching on some chocolates at 11pm at night and jerry came running out of the room after me because I got fed up with trying to put him into bed after 1 hr. Upon exiting, he sees der munching on some stuff…)

Jerry: papa! What are you eating?
Papa: jerry! Why are you not sleeping?
Jerry: hmm.. because I want to come out and see what you are eating.

Right. This kid.. I think he’s too smart for his own good. Grrrrrrr. I know a lot of you are gonna exclaim. . OMG! So cute!!!

I know. I can feel you all, but I also need some empathy on how my time is wasted doing nothing in the dark for hours and the mission (putting the kid into bed) is not being accomplished. #timenotenough

Am going crazy these days battling bedtimes with this kid. I need some baseball bats to knock […]
