Like last year, we didn’t go back to husband’s hometown for CNY, so we will have our reunion dinner at my parent’s house.
Actually this is not the first time I brought Sarah there, but she just can’t stop crying from the moment she stepped into the house…sigh.
She is afraid of the sound of the rain hitting the zinc roof and also the vrooming sound of motorcycle passing by. She doesn’t want to be carry by anybody other than us. Finally I manage to comfort her by feeding her with favourite food (plain rice with gravy), then only she calm down and started playing with the toys.
Overall, she did have some fun playing with her cousin after getting familiar with the surrounding of the house.
But the crying didn’t stop there…
We headed home at around 11.00 pm. And we thought that Sarah would have a good night sleep after a tiring day, alas; she was frightening by the raucous sound of the firecrackers at midnight, so she cried again…sigh.
Now we can only pray it will be fewer firecrackers on the following nights…it’s going be a long, long CNY season for us.
