However, my husband is a man of many mysteries. I say that, because he does surprises when you least expect them. (And when you expect a surprise, there is surprisingly - none!) Come the anniversary date, we did the customary anniversary wishes (and virtual kisses through WhatsApp) and before I knew it, it was already night time and time for bed. During the confinement days, I would go to bed early as I co-slept with Ian and Aiden would insist on sleeping on the same bed as me, so once he dozes off, Hubby would lift him onto the sofa bed they both shared. (And when he wakes up in the middle of the night, he would walk over to the bed and cuddle me - imagine being squeezed between one clingy toddler and a fragile infant, not comfortable I can assure you!)
The next morning I woke up and gingerly pushed myself from between my two kids, and slowly lifted my weight off the mattress. Hubby had left for work and Aiden was still on school holiday, so I really treasured those quiet "me" moments in the morning. And.... there was a surprise waiting for me on the dining table!
|A beautifully set table, lovingly done by my Hubby of 8 years.|
|Three stalks of roses (cos he knows how much I hate wasting money on flower bouquets). An anniversary card, and of course the gift - jewelry in the box!|
|Love the jewelry, but also love the pastry and sweet fruits! Maklumlah, orang tengah pantang! I obviously cheated on my pantang again that morning *grins*|
|The anniversary card on the side. Notice the new dining table? Will blog about that in a separate post.|
And... just my luck - as soon as I dived into the divine looking pastry, someone started coo-ing from the bedroom.
|Check out the deep set eyes. Definitely Mummy's boy (at least for now)!|
|Of course, Abang Aiden woke up shortly after.|
|My only hope is that they grow up loving each other the way they do now.|
|My two out of three boys in the family. I am definitely outnumbered.|
