My first train ride with two kids happened last weekend. Daddy C was on a business trip to India and I have to go to my dentist.
I can’t reschedule my dentist appointment since it was important that my orthotic device (for my TMJ) be adjusted.
We had a long train ride ahead of us: Stadium station to Marina station. V was very excited while I kept on praying that LittleMiss won’t ask for “nanan” (breastmilk) for the entire ride.
V saw the sign just perfect for us! But we didn’t get to sit. It was 8:30 am and the train was full! Both kids still in a jolly mood, V was entertaining LittleMiss doing his balancing act.
We finally got to sit after 6 stations and the kids getting bored already. LittleMiss want me to buckle & un-buckle her while in the stroller. Good thing, iPadNanny was with me who managed to keep the kids (& passengers) entertained with Despicable Me 2 till we reached Marina station.
V took care of LittleMiss with the help of the clinic staff during my appointment. Since they were both really good I rewarded them a trip to Dubai Mall to eat at Cinnabon and 1 toy they can share.
When we reached MOE station V was now asking if we can just ride a cab after Dubai Mall. Both kids definitely tired.
We reached Dubai mall and the kids once again back to happy mood after lunch. V was so happy he found the perfect toy (wooden blocks) he can share with LittleMiss and it was on sale!
On our way to Union station LittleMiss who was bored and tired, started crying for milk! But she didn’t want me to get her from the stroller. Yes, she was screaming and crying till we got in our train on the red line. One lady who I think want to help me approached LittleMiss and gave her a pat on the cheek, the nice gesture just made her more upset. I really hoped that she talked to me first. LittleMiss got tired and we finally had a peaceful trip.
Next time, I’m going to get Nol Gold cards!
