They love their walks, often spent babbling to each other while admiring the sights of the old estate. They’re so accustomed to these walks, which have become part of their wind-down routine, that they’d often get very edgy, when for some reason or the other, they don’t go for a walk. Usually, a spin in the car would do the trick.
Not only do they enjoy their walk. We often find that it let’s us, care-givers unwind. And since, it always takes more than one person to care for the twins. The walk would allow at least 1 care-giver, often my mum, a chance to shower, watch some tv and catch a breather. So it’s a win-win all round!
The twins have been lucky. I walked them daily when I was on maternity leave. And hubby’s been walking them twice a day while he’s been home over the last two months. And on some special days, we even take them on walks further afield.
Last Saturday, we enjoyed a cool breezy walk at Upper Pierce Reservoir.
If there’s one thing we will always have as a family, it will definitely be our walks!

The latest addition to my wardrobe, courtesy of my fabulous talented seamstress mother is this delightful strawberry printed skirt. Got the fabric when I was out shopping for my material for my hari raya baju this year.
It’s Japanese cotton by the way. And i thought the print was TOOO cute! So I just HAD to have it! Got my mother to sew me a skirt. And wanted a more vintage-y, mad-men-ish look. She kept saying, isn’t it too long? Isn’t it too flared?
No no no mum! I love it! I do!
The family celebrated my birthday yesterday. Over post-sahur chat with my mum, I said, ” I can’t imagine celebrating the twins 32nd birthday.” This morning, when she kissed and hugged me and wished me happy birthday, ” She whispered…32 years ago, today….” and left it at that.

Last year, I was in no mood to celebrate my birthday. I was suffering from first trimester blues and nauseas all the time, and I was sickened with fear that my pregnancy would end as quickly as the first one. I remember telling the family, that all I wanted was gifts in the form of prayers, to pray that my pregnancy would be healthy, and that I’d be able to carry the babies to term. Our prayers were answered and my 31st birthday gift arrived on 05 Feb 2011.
This year, I am truly in the mood to celebrate. After all, what more can a 32 year old wish for other than a loving family (supportive husband included) complete with a pair of amazing twin-bubs.

Thank you all for your birthday wishes! This year is going to be amazing, I can feel it in my bones… =)
