Sleepy Episode

Yesterday, after dropping by at our new house, Papa wanted to go window shopping at IOI Mall, Puchong. By the time we reached IOI Mall, it was already something like between 2.30 to 3.00pm and a very hot sunny afternoon as well. When we were still in the car (almost reaching IOI Mall), Juan Or already looked quiet - a sign that he's sleepy (he last woke up at near 10am). After getting out from the car, Juan Or appeared to be revitalized, probably because he was excited to see all things associated with kai-kai (outing).

With Juan Or sitting in the shopping cart, we went up high and went down low in the shopping mall. Finally, we decided to make a quick stop at IOI's Jusco (the Jusco sale is on!) before leaving the mall. By then, it was already 4+ pm. It was at Jusco's electrical goods department when Mommy spotted Juan Or like this:

(With tiny hands holding on to the shopping cart's railing, Juan Or's head dangled forward and sideways like floating in air.)

On seeing this, we decided to go back home immediately. Papa picked Juan Or up and out of the shopping cart and carried him with his face resting on Papa's shoulder. Mommy followed from behind and managed to capture this:

(Eyelids too heavy - already dozed off at Papa's shoulder!)

The conclusion from this sleepy episode is that Juan Or has 'grown up' already. In the past, whenever we go for outings and that if it happened that Juan Or felt sleepy and we were not in a moving car, Juan Or would end up crying non-stop. With this sleepy episode, looks like Juan Or is able to settle himself to sleep anywhere (hopefully not just this time, but next time as well!) minus the fretting and crying.

Broccoli Ginger, yup, Juan Or's dad was very happy that he didn't fret/cry at all even though he was very sleepy. :-)

Alice Law said...

Hehe... poor Juan Or.

For both Juan Juan and Ah Xuan, both never fret nor cry even they are drop dead tired or hungry during the outing... reason?! Unclear... :p

Alice Phua, did Juan Or continue to sleep when he reached home? I seldom go for outing during the naptime hours, as I find it is very pitiful to see the children so tired and sleepy. We usually go out after their naptime.

So pity...

Alice Phua said...

mNhL, hopefully the no-crying and no-fretting thing goes on and on and not just for this occasion!
:-D

Alice Law, good for you-lah that they won't cry/fret....less stressful.

Sheoh Yan, yes, he continued sleeping when reached home. For Juan Or, usually by afternoon till late evening, when his naptime is can be very unpredictable. Sometimes, he can do by not having any nap at all throughout whole afternoon, but sometimes yes.

CYnthia, hehehe, so glad he didn't fret/cry.

Smallkucing, hopefully not just now, but for many many outings to come.

Prince n princess mum, that's why we decided to quickly go back when we found his head dangling.

I guessed he must have learned his lesson. He understands more as he gets older.

Alice Phua said...
