Mummy and ?? are caught in a gardening spell. For the past 2 days, we had been busy spending our afternoon doing gardening. It started on Sunday night when Mummy suggested to go to the plant nursery to get some flowers for the garden after our dinner at Macaroni Grill, a nice restaurant nearby. On Monday afternoon, after our power afternoon naps, we started planting those plants at around 4.30pm. By 6 plus we were finally done. Mummy wouldn’t have done it alone without ??’s help as Mummy know nuts about gardening. Daddy is the one who has the green fingers and don’t mind getting soil and mud stuck in his fingers doing all those digging! Though ?? was not very successful with her plants back home, she is still better at using those gardening tools and more knowlegeable when it comes to the ‘know hows’ of gardening.
We had to spend 2 days doing it cos we actually re-do everything again today! Both being amateur when it comes to gardening,…it was only after we had all the flowers planted that we realised that we could have done certain things better … such as
1. narrowing the gap between each plant
2. loosening the soil more
So for the second day, we went to another plant nursery again hoping to get fresher flowers and better bargain for the flowers. We end up getting another batch of flowers, more garden soil and a hoe! The hoe definitely caught Mal’s attention and he was hoggingto it for about 1/2 hour after we came home before he would let anyone used it! So poor ?? had to use the spade instead to do the digging…just like what we did on the 1st day.
Like I mentioned before, Mal is getting very mischevious! While we were busy gardening, Mal grabbed the opportunity to play and explore all the new things. He almost wanted to use the scissors to cut the precious flowers! Guess how angry Mummy was! He is so full of NO’s nowadays. Everything that seem to be ok 2 weeks ago had changed. He refused to let anyone share the hoe, share the spade, wash his butt cos he poo in his diaper and he just love to say NO now. When he refused to wash his butt, Mummy had the sliding door to the lawn area locked, hoping that he will succumb to fear and obediently go to the bathroom. Mummy was wrong! ?? had to end up be the one to force him to the bathroom to have his butt washed. He is so…ooo stubborn!!! but then what can we expect…when both Mummy and Daddy were known for that as well.
Anyway, at the end of everything, Mummy and ?? were very pleased with our new garden. Actually wanted to give Daddy a surprise…but then so difficult to keep it from him…and with this blog, he may just happened to read it. Since he had heard all about the garden…Mummy shall save the photos and let him see it for himself on Friday… meanwhile…will let Mal, the little rascal, keep you entertained
it’s amazing how a hoe can keep him occupied for sooo…oo long…even better than those branded expensive toys! after all the gardeing…a dip in the pool seems like a good idea
