Big sister takes care of little brother.
Somehow I love this phrase.

Indeed,many was telling me that if a daughter comes before brother,the sister will take care of brother compared to big brother takes care of little sister.I find it kinda true,Adelle loves to help her brother in certain ways no doubt lately they still fight for toys But on the other hand,Ayden loves his sister so much that he listens and follow the sister instructions!

Thats cute isnt it?

Little Pre schooler,Adelle.(38mths)

image

image

image

My 38mths old Pre schooler speaks like an adult.Whenever she asks me a question,I will say hmmm…There she goes,”Mummy dont say hmmm,say yes!”

She will correct me of things I have said wrongly.Ok,my little Teacher Adelle!

Lately,she will snatch toys away from Ayden so I use a star chart for her,saying that if she is good on this day,she gets a star.At the end of a week if she gets 7 stars,her reward is an ice cream(for this week) and if she gets 30 stars for a mth,she gets a present.

So everyday she behaves so well that she will say Mummy,Adelle is a good girl,can get a star.
Or if she accidently pushes Ayden down,she will say sorry almost immdiately which she will not say a word of sorry at all if she did something wrong before this star chart was being introduce.

My little preschooler,Adelle!

Son gets pretty much easier lately!Yes he can understand more instructions now.And the best part,he can sit down on the ground to have flashcards time or hands on activities or even singing of songs before bedtime with Adelle.

Im so looking forward to this stage now where he can understand bettee.Yes,little Ayden had grown up to be a toddler,no longer an infant.

And he walks pretty much better now.Shouldnt be a problem soon where I can bring the two kids out on a shopping trip to meet up with friends even if Ayden refuse to sit on the stroller,he can always walk or carry.

Things will be better!

My two kids yea!Well lately they can learn together.Yes in terms of hands on or phonics flashcards,they could do it together.

Beside which,Ayden loves to imitate what Adelle did and follow closely and he learns!

Yes thats right,I rem Adelle only understand instructions very well at 16mths,but today Ayden at 13mths old understand lotsa instructions given to him.Im glad Ayden learns from Adelle.

Instructions like
:Ayden stand and walk(he is in siting position),he really stand and walk
:Bring this paper and throw
(he holds the paper,walk to the dustbin n throw)
:All fall down song
(he follows exactly when the song goes sit down,stand upx2)

Somehow Im surprised with his actions.Im glad I have Adelle to help me with Ayden.

Each time I speak to Adelle or scolds her,be sure to see Ayden standing next to Adelle looking at her n turn his head and look at me.I knew he is learning!

Or when Adelle scribbles on the paper,Ayden wants it too!In one word he is following what Adelle is doing.

Both kids look pretty excited and happy with their new Polo-T yea.

Looking at their works!I did some activities with them at home.Mostly on painting in the evening just before I give them dinner and bath.

Normally I will have a night lesson for Adelle(as seen above) after Ayden turns in for the night at 9pm.As for Adelle,I will accompany her for bedtime by 1030pm the latest.Thats when all of us rest for the day.

The routine is more or less being this way.During the day,I will try to make them to have a bit of work together,be it art and craft or reading or even music and movement.

After dinner,will be lesson time for Ayden before he sleeps at 9pm and followed by Adelle after which.

Thats how daily routine works after all the trials.

Sometimes as Im flipping throught the newspaper,wanted to find a job but looking at the children made me stop what Im doing.

Im thinking to get a job but yet cant bear the thoughts of having to leave them for more than 8hrs in a day.

It could be that I had already develop that feeling of staying home with my children that I dare not make the 1st step out.

At times,I really hope to go back to work again after 3yrs+,which if I were to drag any longer,the situation might be diff.

Looking at Adelle and Ayden,I totally reject the thoughts.

The husband preferred myself to stay home as I get to take care of the kids where we dont have to fork out extra cash for the children
being baby sitting.

There are lotsa thinking in my mind now though.

Vegetarian Day:soup with snow pear,onion,carrots,red dates and wolfberries.

I cook everyday on a weekdays.I try not to cook on weekends whereby we either eat out or have our meals at in laws place.

So the husband will go to the wet market every Sun to get all the groceries for me while I look after the kids at home.Perhaps I should go to the wet market someday.

Normally he will come home with the whole week groceries.Thats the problem arises!My fridge seems to be a little too small for the groceries especially when he brings home fruits as well.

Nevertheless,its so much better than I have to buy back the groceries fr the supermarket daily.

To keep my veggies fresh,I’ll wrap them with newspapers.Indeed it stays fresh even almost a week later.
