Had a really lovely time with Clem and her friends at the nursery today.

It is mother’s day week at the nursery and so this week they are allowing mothers to visit the nursery so we can play with our children and see what they get up to.

It was very nice to meet Clem’s friends too. They are so friendly. Not shy at all!

Clem wanted me to read her a story. And so did her friends. And they all wanted to sit on my lap! 😂😂😂

So I had 3 girls sitting on my lap! They made me read 3 books! By the end of it, i had pins and needles on my legs haha.

At 6.10 this morning, Clem came in to our bedroom and said, in her outdoor voice… “what’s that noise??”

It was her father… Snoring away..


So she climbed into our bed and kept asking us every few min if it was time to wake up.


Tonight is the second night that Clem is not wearing nappies to bed.

I asked her to go to the toilet for a wee just before bed…

3 min after having a wee, she said she needs to go again. This is one of her excuses for delaying bedtime. I was worried that she really need to wee too… Better be safe than sorry… So we went…

I waited and waited and there was no pee. I got annoyed and asked her…

Me: is the wee wee coming?

Clem: Yes.

20 seconds later

Me: do you need to wee wee? Are you lying to mummy??

Clem: it’s coming.

Me: don’t lie to mummy.

Clem: no. It’s coming.

Me: then where is it??

Clem: On my bottom!


Me: if you have to wait so long means you have no wee wee Ok?

Last night I told Clem that 大便 is poo poo in Chinese.

This morning she came in and suddenly said 大便! Hahaha how come she can remember words like 大便 and 屁股 so easily but can’t remember words like 积木?? 为什么这样的?
