I remembered going to plenty of indoor playgrounds with my cousins as a kid. Being one of the oldest among my cousins, I am often seen protecting them from other rowdy kids and teaching them all kinds of mischief. What fond memories I have of these adventures.
My mum-in-law is a passionate educator and she strongly believes that learning can be fun. This is evident in the little activities that she engages Junior in before he went to school and was still spending a great amount of time at grandma’s.
Back in October, we spent a week in Hong Kong (long I know). We wanted it to be a leisure trip where we could do a lot more sight-seeing and we did exactly that by slowing our pace down. The possibly unfortunate thing was having Junior come down with a fever where we spent a day in the hotel room just for him to recover – not that I minded actually. Despite that, we managed to spend a day in Hong Kong Disneyland.
I have the Ostrich Syndrome when it comes my health. I rather ‘stick my head in the sand’ than go for a health check-up. Things sort of change when one becomes a wife/mother. I stop thinking just for myself because my health and general wellbeing will definitely affect my family one way or another.
Singapore’s landscape in recent years has really changed substantially. Besides the tall skyscrapers, there are a lot more parks, gardens and park-connectors island wide. And most of them are pretty well kept and attracts plenty of nature goers.
Remember my nature the teacher post where I mentioned the controversy and debatable topic of introducing screen time (TV / Ipads / Tab / Mobile phones etc) to our little ones?
Yes, so I’ve been having these nagging feeling and was thinking a lot about recently that I polled fellow mummies and daddies in the Singapore Parent Bloggers group. I needed to gain some insights and hear some views.
We didn’t used to frequent Gardens By The Bay until our discovery of the Children’s Garden. In fact, we were really quite impressed with the Children’s Garden and all that it offers. It is a great place for kids, if I say so myself, and my little bub certainly enjoys himself every single time we are there. He loves the water play area the most, especially so on warmer days.
At 1.5yrs old, Junior makes his second trip out of the country and my much needed break. I’ve recently just concluded some projects at work and was dying for a break to recharge and rejuvenate. We chose Perth because i) we were travelling with my folks and they loved Perth and ii) I had so many great reviews and recommendations from friends and iii) Australia is such a family friendly country.
Right when Junior was a tiny baby, I’ve always wondered about the things he might like as he grew older. Will he be a “cars” person? Or a “ball” person? Or someone who likes animals like his papa? Will he like to craft? Or prefers to read or draw?
