It’s amazing how little children grow up SO fast.
(And they ‘grow up’ in the most obvious way when they are 0-3 years old, don’t they?)
The thing is, we spend time with them daily, but we’re often so occupied with handling our daily challenges, that we forget to (Read more...)
Here’s one milestone I’d like to remember in years to come:
Brie is now COMPLETELY weaned of breastfeeding!
Officially, it’s been three days since she was last nursed.
(Read: By yesterday, she no longer asks for “Ooh-ooh Mommy’ – her way of saying ‘S (Read more...)
Sometimes I wonder what goes through the mind of babies when they see something.
When they choose to dance and sing out loud.
Or when they suddenly cry a good cry for 20 seconds and chuckle not too long later.
…It’s not the sentimental ‘Mommy I love you’, or ‘D (Read more...)
The first day of school happened yesterday, and for both my girls, it was a big transition in their lives. Joey started Primary One and Jayne started Nursery - her first ever schooling experience.
I had expected Jayne to have some form of separation anxiety, as would most kids starting school. But I (Read more...)
Today is the 1st day of 2013 and I am really excited about it. I have a gut feel that it's going to be an extraordinarily special and exciting year for me and my family. Personally for me, it's going to be a year of LIBERATION.
Well, ever since the kids came along, the house had been occupied by th (Read more...)
The week before we left for Perth, we went to Joey's Primary School to settle the administrative matters, as well as to buy all her textbooks and school uniforms. Suddenly the truth sunk in: Joey is going to Primary One!
Bought 3 sets of school uniform and 2 sets of PE attire. We reached bright and (Read more...)
The truth is, I am really not a very kiasu mum.
I mean, if I compare myself to my friends who started doing flash cards with their babies from six months onwards and those who sent their kids for enrichment classes from 18 months onwards, I'd probably score a 9 on the heck-care scale of 1 to 10. I (Read more...)
With tears welling up in my eyes and lips that couldn't stop trembling, I ran to my girl and pulled her into my tight embrace. I wanted so much to tell her how mightily proud I am of her, for having accomplished something so great in her life. But I couldn't utter a word. I was too choked by my em (Read more...)
I am mightily proud of my baby girl, who did her first march-in down the aisle with such gusto, confidence and poise. I was initially a little worried she might back out last minute, or be a run-away flower girl. A little too much imagination there, but thank God nothing of those sorts happened. S (Read more...)
I have to admit that one of life's worst fears has got to do with visiting the dentist. Everyone has some horrible mental image of a dentist, usually with a drill in one hand and a sharp hook-looking object in the other. He is wearing a mask and the only things you can see on his face are his expr (Read more...)
