I love living where I do, in a small cosy estate in the East, a stone’s throw away from the wonderful food of Katong, easy access to shopping at Parkway Parade, a cool night breeze wafting in my living room, and most importantly, the East Coast beach a ten-minute walk away.
I’ve lived in this estate for most of my life, and as a youth, I must admit, I never found the allure of the beach. Not only did I become a parent did I realize how much fun a little sand and water will be – and free to boot!
Jay was occupied with a simple spade, and digging a h9ole big enough to stand knee-deep in.
Anything that will occupy him for 20 minutes – is a good endeavour in my books! Haha!
My younger prince is not as adventurous when it comes to sand play. Yet.
He refused to take his shoes off, and hardly wandered a foot away from where we were sitting! His choice of fun? A pail of sea water and some water toys! But I remember Jay only enjoying running on the beach after he turned two – and the turning point was the weekly chance at sandplay at his childcare. So there may be hope for Xav yet! Heh heh…
Nonetheless, spending a morning with the hubs and my two boys, followed by a very satisfying lunch at one of our favourite restaurant (Waraku) made for a perfect end to our Saturday!
Last weekend was also coincidentally our 6th wedding anniversary, and while we’ve tried to make some couple time the last few years, this was a weekend with a very tight schedule. So this was our little day out with the boys, and a mini-celebration. Sometimes I am a little amazed at how long we’ve known each other and been married, but without a doubt, it has been one awesome ride with my best friend and lover, and God’s blessing on my life!
