Hot on the heels of Teacher’s Day comes the kids’ equivalent. Anyhow, at this age it doesn’t quite matter. They get to party in school, presents go around and a day off from lessons. Whatever the occasion, it is just time to celebrate. They had their fun in school and with the Sunday School kids [...]
The one week break came and went. With it we actually went to a couple of places we haven’t been to in a while, and finally made a trip down to Jacob Ballas. Lots of fun for the kids, and completely energy zapping for the adults.
To all the teachers out there, we hope you had a blessed teacher’s day. The kids had a lovely time at the party and came back with loads of stories. I guess the different cultures in the two schools shows. They were asked to draw a card, not bother with gifts, but who really listens? [...]
The last couple of weeks have been wonderfully short. In school that is. With the public holidays, the weeks just became so much shorter. We wondered where to bring the kids to to keep them (somewhat!) gainfully employed. Singapore looked woefully sad in terms of the places to go. My fb feed consisted of mummy [...]
So we got sucked into this blackhole called life. Things have been moving along, as we continue on in the new school year. Amazing skies at dusk. The days are getting warmer and the cloud-scape has been nothing short of amazing. Rather therapeutic to watch them move and change their shape, flitting across the wide [...]
Friday was a nice, sunlit day. With only Jayden in school, I brought Kath for a walk round the estate. Strangely familiar yet different, it was quite the novel way to teach Kath colours and nature. I was pleasantly surprised that she actually did not fuss, and that we managed quite a distance (2km!) on [...]
It sure doesn’t look like it but we were minutes away from bedtime. To be more exact, we were minutes away from them actually falling asleep, and way past bedtime. After a long day with kids, the magical moment when they doze off into the still of the night is rather welcoming. Enough said. Nitey [...]
Self explanatory really. I’ve been hearing them tell tales on each other almost daily so such moments, are meant to be treasured. Kath, who only remembers being wronged, has no concept of when it occured and will persistently repeat it to anyone who would listen. Until the next wrong is done against her. Heh. Poor [...]
Today I’m thankful for a fuss-free, painless day of school. Jayden had a mini-meltdown when he started two years back. It was probably due to him having a relatively new sister. He would cry the most when I sent him off. Thankfully, drama-mama days ended within the first 2 weeks of school and never came [...]
This new year, I’m trying a new pet project. 365 days of thanksgiving; one item a day. One whole year through. I never quite made it through with my photo-a-day series last year so let’s see how far along I’d get with this. At the end of it all, I figure, this will make a [...]
Just like that, the year is ending. Just like that, 2012 is coming. Both kids will be in school, their new school and they are pretty darn excited. Good for us. Hopefully, the transition will be much easier as compared to when J first started out in pre-N. So, we’d see you again in 2012… [...]
We snuck the kids out to the movies just now. Never mind that it’s a weekday and there’s school for Jayden tomorrow. The term is almost ending. Not like last minute cramming is going to get him all that much smarter. So, mum and I packed both kids out of the house and barely made [...]
One thing about getting older is a greater awareness of what is going on. One thing about not being too much older is not getting stage fright. Just right. Jayden had his year end kindergarten concert yesterday and it was a pleasant surprise to see he was quite in sync with the song and dance. [...]
Can every Wednesday be a public holiday? I think we all enjoyed the mid week respite. It felt so much like a Saturday! Double Trouble Fun.
It’s been one crazy hectic week. Of poop and puke. We are all down with stomach flu, taking turns to fall like dominos. The kids have almost fully recovered and are largely back to their chirpy selves while me and mum are struggling to keep queasy tummies at ease and mind the two bundles of [...]
