pretty much alive and kicking! Haha.
But sorry for the lack of updates though. Nothing interesting happened lately and everything seems so......... mundane.
The weather is getting warmer and warmer everyday as spring is approaching. Yesterday, a couple of H's colleagues' wives (I called them the members of Oslo's wives' club. Hehe) and I arranged for a get together and met up with a Singaporean lady that we knew over Facebook. Does it amaze you just how fantastic online social network is? Not only it connects friends (and foes!) but it also brings strangers together.
We went to United Bakeries, a trendy yet cosy bakery at Oslo city center. It was a new experience for me as it was my first time hanging out with mothers and their babies, outside. I know it's shocking but I never hang out with my friends and their kid(s) outside. Whenever I see them it's either at their house or ours. Whenever we went lepaking, we usually hang-out with H's guy friends and they're mostly unmarried. So being surrounded by a toddler and 2 babies while hanging out is new to me.
Wait, now I know why I lack motherly instinct, I don't surround myself with babies (and their mothers) enough. Lol.
I have to admit that I am not good with kids. I cringe and annoyed whenever a kid misbehaves. That's how terrible (and impatient) I am. But A's (the Singaporean lady) kids are so well-behaved. Her 20-months toddler even wants to sit on my lap! Well, that's a first. Haha. Smiling and giggling at all the goofy stuffs I did to him. Such a charmer, he is. Her 5-months baby, apart from being the biggest 5-months baby I've ever seen, is such a happy baby, all cute and adorable with his gummy smiles.
We then talked about everything under the skies. From living in Norway to our health concerns. From their pregnancy and birth experiences to places to visit during summer. Towards the end of our meeting, I can conclude that I was never this happy while being surrounded by kids.
Does that mean that I'm ready to have one on my own?
