It just hit me that during our 4 day 3 night holiday in KL, I had not prepared a single bottle of milk for Joshua. Neither had I changed anything more than one diaper.
Which pretty much means PapaNash had been doing all the dirty work during our vacation.
And he didn’t even utter a single word of complain.
Except for this one morning when he was feeling lazy and he nicely requested that I change Joshua and pack the baby essentials before waking him up to go out. That happened to be the one and only time I changed Joshua’s diaper in the whole span of four days.
And even though I often saw the sheer frustration on his face whenever he needed to literally lug the pram (with the 10kg Joshua in it and the bottom compartment stuffed full of barang-barang) up and down the stairs and various obstacles that are completely not pram-friendly, he never uttered a word of complain. Or even let out a simple “tsk”.
He just grinned at me and said, “Sometimes I think slinging the boy would be so much easier”.
And sometimes, I think, I shouldn’t complain too much about this hubby who isn’t loaded but is so giving in all other ways that he is able to.
Although I must add: Disappearing on me without a word for one whole hour to tabao from across the road is still NOT acceptable. 如果我有心脏病，早就被你吓死了。
Happy Valentine’s Day, my dear. Now don’t you go disappearing on me again without a word. I will literally smack you if you pull this kind of act again. I love you.
