Getting ready for the staycation over this weekends.

Phew it seems that there are lotsa activities going on for the children lately.

Decided to bake a cake using HCP recently.So here comes the cake!Chocolate chip butter cake though.

Next comes the mashmallows lollipops.Yes,Adelle loves it so much.As for Ayden,of course he had a little taste on it.He is loving it too!!

Im thinking to try using fruits to make fruits pops.Well,kiwi,strawberry are in my list of fruits pops.So Im sure the kids will love them too!

Not sure why the picture of our baggage in the previous post is not out,anywhere here it goes.

Although its only for a night stay but it seems that we have a lot to pack.Mostly are the children stuff,diapers,wet wipes,milk powder etc.

It gotta be a very busy weekends as after the wedding dinner,there will be a Birthday party to attend on the following day.

Keeping me busy with all these activities with the children is a good thing.

Adelle@39mths

image

Adelle my cutie pie!At times she can be very sensible till as though Im interacting with an adult.But at times,she can do things on purpose till it gets to my nerves!

I like the way she helps me in taking care of Ayden.But when both kids snatch a toy together,my head is “big”..

If anything needs to be done or will happen,there is a need to tell her before hand so that she is prepared.
Eg:if we are meeting any relatives or friends,we need to tell her this so that she knows about it n will address the person we are meeting.

As I dont believe in last minute work,I wouldnt want to train Adelle in being last minute as well.Is good to keep her prepared of things that are going to happen.

These are some of the simple instructions which he had better understanding of.

When Im blogging about my family,I always have a sense of happiness.Yes thats how I have always feel.

Looking at the children,I know Im blessed to have them.At times they can be very very adorable,but sometimes they can make me mad!
As for the husband,he had always been very supportive.He finds that with me staying home to take care of the children are much more easier than to engage help.When I can get the chance to have bonding with the children.

Look at our baggage!Dont be mistaken,we are not going for any trip yet this year.As the sister in law will be holding her wedding dinner at Crown plaza hotel this weekend,therefore she had specially book a room for us to stay over after the dinner.Its really very nice of her to be so thoughtful knowing that we have children and the travelling back home after which might be tiring.Therefore,she arranges for a room so that we can settle the kids after the dinner.

It gonna be a very busy weekends!

Dressing up the children is what I have always love to do.

Beside so,getting these clothes from US and ship it back is even much more cheaper.And the plus point is that,their design is seldom or rather not seen in SG.

Therefore all the more I would wanna choose nice designs and ship it back ro SG!

We had already ordered a few times from Carters,Osh kosh or even Old Navy.

Im so in love with their clothes!

Button it up,its meant for Adelle but will be for Ayden when he is much older.

image

Button snake.Here I cut the shapes for both kids to try and slot it in.They(more for Ayden learning)learn shapes as well.

image

Yes,I love this book!It teaches me on how to behave so that my pre schooler will follow as well.

image

This morning I have posted in my Facebook (as seen above)that staying home with two kids,having to attend to their needs,taking care of the family can be quite a challenge.But,all these can be done easily when a routine is being set.I strongly believe in this.

And this is the reason why I am still “survining”…As Im very into to let my children to learn more things so that in future when the children attend Pre school,it will be easier for them or even the teachers.I know my effort have paid off when I see how much they have learned and also the feedback given by Adelle teacher.

No doubt so,beside taking care of the family,I told myself I have to find time to teach the children which I cant find the right timetable to teach both of them when Ayden arrives.Things get easier and better and look ,after the routine is being set,I know both my children are learning and seeing the effect on them,I know I have done it!

Preparing of home teaching aids is good.Right now Im into busy bags ideas,into mini books as well.I know I will be very busy,but again if it does benefit the children,why not?:)

Lovable children!Im truly thankful for having them.
Yes,just 5yrs back on 21st Oct 2007,I have a miscarriage.
3mths after our customary,Im pregnant in Sept 2007,but it was a failure pregnancy,I cant keep the baby as he/she was found to have no heartbeat by 21st Oct 2007.

I almost broke down.Thankfully for the many comforting words from relatives and friends which made my life ongoing again.Now 5yrs later,Im blessed to have children again.A boy and a girl is send to me by God after the lost.

Yes,I know God is good to be by giving me what I had lost many yrs back.Morever,God gave me easy and smart children.For this,I know choosing to go vegetarian every lunar 9mths for life,praying every weekly is to give thanks,clear my karma and of course to help the unborn.

With these,all the more I must take vegetarian and pray as much as I can.

And Im so thankful to God for blessing a daughter and son who are easy and smart children.

How Adelle learns to write/draws(39mths)

image

image

image

image

image

image

I can draw myself(Adelle)

image

I can draw a cat.

image

I can draw a flower.

image

I can draw a sun.

image

I can draw a bird.

image

I can draw my brother

image

I can draw anything
(So Adelle choose to draw a cake.Yes a cake for her 3rd Birthday a few mths back)

My Pre schooler is a fast learner.I used to worried that she might not be able to write or draw well when she comes to this stage of age.But she proved me wrong!

A few mths back,I’ve gotten her to trace the dotted lines of letters A-Z,which she simply traced for say 6/7 of them and rejected badly,says she doesnt like it and dont wanna trace it any more.

At that time(34-37mths),I have been cracking my head a lot to think of any ideas so that she will show interest in and write.But it doesnt last long.She just refused.:(

So happen that there was once,I just randomly write letter K on a piece of paper,got her to follow.Bravo!She did it!!Althou not in the right way,but the K which she did,I know it looks similar to mine.So from then on,I tried to write on a paper and gets her to follow each time I have any lesson with her.

After learning to write the alphabets,I also draw the pic of a cat(in my facebook,Adelle’s work album) on the paper and gets her to follow.By not looking at how she draws(I know she might be shy or what),and the next moment I see it,she really drew a very alike cat as mine.Im so surprised!

So I know this young lady refuse to trace any dotted lines which I know she might feel restricted.From then on,I will just draw and gets her to copy what I have done.

The 3rd mini booklet as shown above was what I have gotten Adelle to do.Yes,her drawing gets slightly better and her writing as well compared to her first few trials.Great job Adelle!

The son who loves to learn(14mths)

This is “Special Play box”,to change as and when base on the child interest.Meant for Ayden.

image

“Pain in ziplog bag”another great activity for the toddlers!

For Ayden,I have always love to research lots of teaching ideas online.These are the 2 current activities I have done for him.

Meanwhile,I did “diaper mail box” for him as well!(not pictured)He loves new teaching ideas,most importantly he loves study time.

As for the “Diaper mail box”,Im currently in the midst of doing another new material for both the children.After posted the video of this activity in Facebook,one of the teacher from Right Brain Edu has given me a precious feedback!Which I gotta try on the idea she has given me.

As for Mr Ayden,well he is the type of child who acts just like Adelle!He loves to learn!I’m tying to find space to store all of his teaching aids somewhere.Each time he goes to the room,be sure to see him walking towards the box of teaching aids,pull out any of the teaching aids,pass it to me and started crying.He wants to learn!
