Has it already been 3 years?! It felt like just yesterday when we celebrated Junior’s 1st birthday. Looking back at all of 3 years, we have certainly come a long long way. Not just for Junior but us as parents. And if I can be absolutely thick skin about it, I deserve a pat on the back as well.
To be absolutely honest, I have always thought that museums are for older kids. How can toddlers appreciate art or arty exhibits? Even though there are no shortage of research that indicates the benefits of museum visits for toddlers, I was sceptical.
So when I heard of the Children Biennale at the National Gallery Singapore and seeing the buzz it created on social media, it did cross my mind that it was merely an Instagram-able place and never really thought much about bringing Junior there. The long story short of what prompted me to go was because of work. Lo and behold, all three of us actually enjoyed ourselves.
I don’t know what took me so long to put together Junior’s birth story. Perhaps a part of me wanted to keep this story private and within just the 3 of us. Now that we are fast approaching Junior’s 3rd birthday, I have this fear that I might forget the details of what happened on that day as years passes by. Before that happens, I want to document down that magical day and share it with Junior in the future.
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.
This post has been a long time coming but I just didn’t have the time to write the post. I got reminded again by my 2 year’s old this morning during our morning commute when he told us that he wanted to go to Korea again. He wanted to eat a double cheeseburger and fries and go to Pororo Park in Korea. I’m constantly amused by the snippets of things he remembers about each trip.
As a family we definitely love travelling and exploring new places. We have been a big advocate in getting Junior exposed to the world which is why we always brings him along whenever we travel. We also believe that he does remembers bits and pieces of where we went and what we did with the help of photos and videos. One thing for sure is that he remembers more than what we think he would.
Well, so what co-relations do preschool and fever have? I’ve been told way before I decided to send Junior to school that kids tends to fall sick A LOT when they are in school. On the flip side, their immune system gets strengthened and will be a lot less prone to falling sick when they are older. What an irony right?
I am a worrywart and I was never good with dealing with separation anxiety. That happened when my maternity leave ended and I had to leave Junior to go back to work and recently when we had to get Junior ready for school.
It has been almost 3 weeks since the bub started N1 and boy did I have the jitters. Yes, you read me correctly, I was the one with the school jitters. Now, let me explain.
Travelling on a plane with a toddler while having its challenges was not as daunting as I’ve expected it to be. I’ve heard or even witnessed horror stories of how toddler couldn’t stop crying or was constantly screaming that made me worried about taking that first flight out. But of course the wanderlust got the better of me and we braved our souls for what may come – being judged or not.
