The awkward moment

by mott on January 18, 2015

*took a deep breath in .. and held it there*

There it was. The moment had come. The awkward moment.

Y’know the moment, where you’re there, with your son, watching something on TV (well… on iTunes), and a sex scene comes up. There was absolutely nothing I could do, except to quickly pause it…but by then it was wayyyyy too late.

*hangs head down low*

Oh boy..that was so awkward. No.1 gave me a really uncomfortable “heh!”.. and ran off. He was all giggly and embarrassed and I was mortified to say the least. I had to dig up courage from the pits of my stomach, which didn’t smell too good, and go to him to have a chat about what he just saw.

Now.. he’s going off to high school this year. I would think he actually knows about the birds and the bees. Given also, he has had sex-ed last, I would think he knew what it was all about. Plus, I think I already explained much earlier how babies are made, and why we must ALWAYS respect girls.

So, off I went… to his room. I sat next to him, and asked how he felt about what he just saw.


Yup, yup yup.. mum too. Yup..mum too!

But you know.. sometimes in shows, they include those scenes because it’s part of a story?

“Yes, mum”

Yup, yup, yup.. *eyes rolling up* not knowing where to look now.

And so… that doesn’t mean, it’s normal to do that anywhere y’know.

“Yes, mum”

Yup, yup, yup… wokayyyy so, we’re good here, eh?

“Yes, mum”

The dream kitchen

by mott on January 14, 2015

I’m living vicariously! Through a friend, who is building her house, and has free rein on how her kitchen should look.

It was such an honour that she had asked how it should look like. I came across this site, and was really excited that I could forward to her all these ideas. Some of it are so amazing! I never knew kitchen reorganisation was so serious!

Did you see the pull up tray for the kitchen aid? That was amazing! The only concern I would have was that if you were mixing something and the mixer shook like hell… the fall, wouldn’t be a pretty sight.

But, otherwise.. everything else about was AMAZING!

What a dream. A very nice dream indeed!
