This made me laugh today :)

“When I didn’t give some of my food to him, he threw his head backwards like a drama queen and refused to eat”

My sister, describing to me what my nephew did when he didn’t get a piece of food from the adults table.

Oh our little snugglebuns is getting so naughty! But also getting cuter and cuter every day! How is this possible! #Whatsorceryisthis!!!

Project Grateful (Day 196): DAT KISS!!!!!!

Today I went upstairs and hung out with my favorite Charlie bear and his sweetie pie mama.

He was in SUCH a JOLLY MOOD! Cackling all over the place, walking/running around and laughing like we were the most entertaining people in the universe. He’s too too too CUTE! Kids have such an infectious laughter!

Best part of the night was when  gave me a kiss on the lips, a huge Charlie bear hug and patted my back. That little heartbreaker I’m tellin’ ya!!!

Proves my point that the best things in life cannot be captured by a photo or a status update.

Thank you little one, you made Auntie Charlene very very happy and extremely delighted today!



(Not taken today, but wanted to remind you of how cute he is!!)


Project Grateful 365 (Day 196): Grateful for Gramma

Kris’s gramma is one of the first few family members of Kris’s that I met. I remember that he took me home in 2010 to met his family and then we drove up to Burlington to meet his gramma.

She’s really the sweetest old lady ever. I think we hit it off almost the second we met, although she could barely understand my thick Singaporean accent. (Proves my point that communication is 70% non verbal!). I can’t even put into words why I love her so much, but she’s just very very lovable. If I had to try, I think it would be because she accepted me into her quaint little apartment with so much love. She gave me a huge bear hug (not the uncomfortable types that you get from new people you just met) but a huge firm and ‘oh I’m really so glad to meet you’ type of hug. Back then I had only dated Kris for like a year, but she just so warmly welcomed me into her home, that I thought it was extremely, extremely sweet. We chatted for a while, brought her out for a fish sandwich and ice cream and she was just so happy and grateful even though it was a ratty old little place. After lunch, she told Kris, ‘I’m going for a little sleep, go buy Charlene something nice at the store.’ Which I guess, made me love her even more!

After we got married, I call her in the afternoon sometimes and she would ask me questions like, “Mrs Beevers, how do you like being a housewife and taking care of the house? Does Kristopher treat you well? I’m sure he does.” Somehow typing it out doesn’t quite bring out the adorable tone that she uses, but it will suffice for now.

For a host of reasons, we have been unable to visit her as often as we would like too. So today, I decided to do a little shopping and send her a little care package.

I got her a nice scarf for fall, some snuggly socks, a small packet of oatmeal shortbread cookies and a picture frame with the 3 of us sitting comfortably in her couch! I’m so excited to send off the package on Monday! It’s nothing fancy really, but I know it will most definitely bring a smile to her face. 🙂
