My daily weekend routine now is wake up at 6.30 am to open the door for the part-time maid to come in and clean the house. Prepare breakfast for the kids. Fetch them to tuition at 8 am. Then head on to the wet market for my weekly grocery shopping. Then back to house and cook for lunch. Then out from house to pick the kids back from tuition. Have lunch, rest for a while. In the evening fetch them to the club for swimming lesson. Then back to house to prepare dinner…. and the list goes on. Seriously, my weekend routine is much more busier than my weekdays working in the office.
On Saturday evening, kids will be attending their swimming lesson. My son, who used to have no confident with whatever he do, has changed. The very first swimming lesson, he told his coach, ” Teacher, I can’t do it. I can’t. I don’t wan to swim”. I must thank his coach for constantly motivating him and tell him he can do it. After 2 months of coaching, he is now can swim in freestyle and back stroke style.
Usually after their swim, the kids is super hungry and can eat like a horse when having their dinner at home. Most of the time I will prepare some sandwiches for them to have it as light snacks before their dinner. My son is more a sandwich person. He loves tuna sandwiches with lots of mayonnaise and he love salads. Unlike my daughter she is more to a ” china ah pek “ style like her Daddy. She usually want rice, noodles or any other solid foods.
I told hubby today, for the next 5 days, I am planning not to cook at home because I will be busy doing my last batch of pineapple tarts baking. Thursday we will be having a pre- CNY reunion dinner with Sis and the family, then the eve of CNY, I will be cooking like a storm for the in-laws.
Here an easy way to prepare a snack box for your kids at home.
You will need :
1 piece of tuna sandwiches, cut into half
1 hard boiled egg, cut into quartered
Some greens, like lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes
Some salad dressing
Arrange the above in a container or bento boxes and enjoy your snacks with your kids.
