Jerome suffered a huge gash across his forehead when he fell from the bed.

Jerome suffered a huge gash across his forehead when he fell from the bed.

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 his forehead…
C: Hurr.. hurrr..
D: And now, we will have to enroll him in Hogwarts childcare! 
C: Hey! That’s copycat!
D: What copycat?! I never copy you.
C: You did! I already said I wanted to enroll him in Hogwarts childcare and buy him an elder wand on my instagram 30 mins ago.
D: Is it?! I didn’t seee…
C: Don’t bluff, you copy cat!
D: I really didn’t see.. and why do you have to say i copy you? You cannot say we both think alike and are on the same frequency meh?
C: Oh, ya hor.. OK. That’s true. Ok. We both had the same idea ok?

I don’t know whether its because I’m lame or he’s lame or that I got so much lamer after getting married to him that we are both equally as lame now. But I enjoy conversations and the wicked humour that we share between the 2 of us and its what fuels our relationship and fill it with little joys that’s non kid-related. I guess the important thing is also about able to laugh about ourselves, or incidents that have happened and then move on.

At the same time, this particular conversation also reminded me something – to give my spouse the benefit of the doubt. More often than not, I tend to just jump into conclusion because I THINK it is that way. I just had to jot down this conversation and remind myself that what I THINK sometimes doesn’t quite matter, and may not even hold true. And that I should always respect the husband for who he is, and the father of my kids.

Meanwhile, for my concerned friends and family, my Jerome Potter is looking good! The wound is healing and although still visible, it is so much better now. Here’s one picture that I took while we spent our saturday morning at Seng Kang Swimming Complex. It’s his first time in a pool and I’ll blog about it soon!
