From Friday 7.45pm till Saturday 6.45pm, we (Mummy & Daddy) were baby-free! That’s almost 24hrs without baby. It was a trial-run for next weekend when we will leave him for 2x nites!!
Tobias had lots of fun – he had lots of little friends to play with – didn’t even asked for us once!! We … or at least me had wanted to call & check after about 15hrs – but Walter said,” NO!” so we didn’t call & i think it went well – it was good for us & good for Tobi! It felt funny thot – at least for me as i have never left Tobi for more than 10hrs before this. i was buying lunch on Saturday & thot what can i get which he (tobi) can eat, then had to stop myself & tell myself he’s not with us today!
My muscles are painful from the half day of trying to remember how to ski – i went on skis for the 1st time 3 years ago & have not done any skiing since then so it was hard work but i’m happy to report that skiing is much like riding a bike in that you don’t forget the basics. Of cos i was not the most graceful person on the slopes but at least i got down the slope.
So it looks like we’ll be all set for the coming weekend – we go for the company ski weekend & Tobi goes to the Bachmanns & have lots of fun playing with their little gals.
In the meantime, this coming week (at least the next 4days) will have to be hubby-free as Walter is away for work. Sigh!
After suffering 2 weeks of negative temperatures, we were finally “rewarded” with snow. i’m one of those people who don’t like cold but if i have to put up with it, then i expected something in return for it – like a pretty snowfall 😉
It started snowing on Monday night & by Tuesday morning there was about 3inches. So we went out & played … we built a SnowBaby(Tobi won’t wait long enough for it to get big enough to be a snowman … so SnowBaby it was!).

After building the SnowBaby, Tobi wanted to pick it up & carry it around. See his attempt below …

PS: Mood today has to do with the music we are listening to now – 70s/80s.
Well, nice to see that a few have come & had a read & left their mark.
Tobi sang his 1st Chinese Song today – he has sung in chinese before – but never a whole song & never on his own. Today while waiting for our turn at the Mutterberatung (Mothers Service/Office – a place where they check & measure your kid for free & give whatever advice u might need), it was a really long wait (more than 1hr), Tobi sat on a ride-around car & sang “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” in Chinese, the whole song, by himself. i was going to type out the words in HanYuPinYin – but they didn’t have it on the VCD so … i’m too lazy to try & pin all the words out. You will just have to wait to hear it for yourselves then 😉
