A Date with Jenny and Handsome Ben

Finally my sifu Jenny and her prince Benjamin made it to my new home. This is 3rd we met after knowing each other from our blogs. As Spicy Baby will be due to arrive soon, I thought it would be nice to have them over before they get busy with the new addition to the family. Jenny is the one who inspired and encouraged me to start blogging. I owe my new found hobby to her ! Cheers!

I was afraid Ben would be shy and needed some time get warmed up to me and Isabelle. So when they arrived, we took a stroll to the pool first and then adjourned back to our home. It was a relief he was very much himself not long after that. He got busy checking out the toys and he even gave me his toy gun! Mommy Jenny said the toy is his precious treasure but he was willing to pass it to me. I must go buy number, maybe can strike lottery! :)

Because I woke up too late this morning, I didn't have time to make anything for my guests today. Thank God I have some of my muffin-ish pancake from yesterday and I warmed it up for Ben and Isabelle's late morning tea.

Ben giving a toy (block or something) to Isabelle. Good boy Ben!

Mommy Jenny, don't worry and don't even feel bad about Ben being territorial. It is normal for kids to behave this way. Isabelle is not traumatised at all. She has totally forgotten about the episode. She keeps saying "Ben, piano" though. :)

Both going round and round and round. Sorry for the blurry picture.
They moved so fast and my simple camera just could not keep up with their speed.

To sum it all up, although they fought a little over the toys but they sure had loads of fun. Hope for more playdates again in the future. Ben is such a handsome boy! I can't get enough of that pair of mesmerising eyes !!

Jenny ~ You are my sifu. You helped me thru a few bloggy obstacles before (only you dont realise).

Isabelle is very forgiving wan. Forgot already. That will teach her the same, not to hit others. So it is a lesson to both Belle and Ben la. No need to apologise la.

If I kena lottery, I buy u a lorry of durian la. :)

Germaine ~ Aiyo, I dont usually arrange so many playdates in a week for her wan. But if the Moms click, then just hang out more lor.

Oh yes durian please, but make sure offer valid after my confinement (not that I pantang :P)

As for Ben hitting on Belle (and me getting traumatised), hubby said I must take this as a lesson and teach Ben to be a better person, don't just because he gets bullied or be the bully then I get scared and phobic and don't dare to bring Ben out to playdates anymore. He's right! But still, need time for me to calm down la :P

Catheryn @ PinkBibs said...

Yes. I agree with what your HB said.

Belle always kena hit la by this other friend's kid. But I didnt stop bringing her for playdates. If she bully or bullied, I will tell her off right on the spot. If kena bully, I will calm her down. If she be the bully, I will correct her right away. This is the only way for them to learn.
