The sun shone into our window and woke me up with its gleaming rays. I rubbed my eyes and smiled, knowing that it was going to be a sunny day. Better shine than rain on this day, right?
It was the day we had been waiting for, especially Angel. At last, she was going for her first run at the Cold Storage Kids Run!
Slowly, we woke the whole family up one by one, got dressed, packed our essentials and made our way to the Padang.
There were mascots of all shapes and sizes. The Gardenia wholemeal bread never failed to make me chuckle every time it walked past.
You know what was the joke of the day? The naive me had assumed that even with a baby on my chest and a backpack on my back, I could still jog by the sideline and catch up with my girl.
Who knows, within thirty seconds after the race started, the hubby and her zoomed forward with such speed that I lost sight of them. Best as I could, I half jogged half ran and took a short cut to reach the finishing line. There, I waited eagerly with my camera to catch that golden moment when my girl got to the end and stepped on the line.
After a long wait with my eyes glued to the track, they emerged from behind me and the hubby told me they had longgggg completed the race and went to get the medal and certificate. In fact, he swore that Angel ran at his jogging speed and they ran so fast that they even caught up with the previous group. She only got tired at the last 50m and gave a weary look but finished the race nonetheless. So, he concluded that they must have taken a total of less than ten minutes.
1) Never bite off more than you can chew
2) Never assume
3) Never underestimate the power of the sun. And your kid.
4) Never forget to bring a brolly when you have a baby
5) Never let the hubby leave you his phone and go off in a race
Time for some crayons! Obviously, after having just met Bob the Builder, she chose a picture of him to colour too.
