Sending hope to a little boy

Ethan came home from school last week telling us that he donated RM2 of his school pocket money for a student who is suffering from Leukemia and is currently in the hospital. That student is also in Primary 3 but from a different class. Ethan does not know him personally. I am surprised and also glad to know that Ethan willingly donated his pocket money for a good cause. We always give him RM5 pocket […]

Touch Me Not

When I was just a little kid, I remember being highly fascinated by the reaction of this unique plant called Mimosa pudica or Touch Me Not upon contact. I love looking for it and touching it to see the leaves closing and waited patiently for them to open up again only to touch them again to see them close. I can do this the entire day without getting bored. We go to the playground almost every […]

A split second is all it takes for a mishap to happen

As parents, we can never be too careful but there are times when all it takes is a split second for a mishap to happen. This incident happened last week but my heart is still tugging heavily thinking about it. I did not want to share about it because it felt stupid on my part as I was at fault and I still can’t forgive myself but somehow I feel it is good to share so […]

Craft for Toddlers: Rock Painting

He loves the colorful rocks in the school compound. That prompted me to let him paint his own rock. Materials needed are acrylic paints, paint brush, an empty egg carton for the paints and an empty Vitagen bottle to wash the paint brush. You can always use a paint palette but I […]

Ayden’s First Dental Check-Up

Remember I did teeth scaling not too long ago? I don’t know why but I found it torturing. Darling (the Daddy) was supposed to do it too after me but because I suffered so much, I told him not to do it as I thought he has a lower pain threshold compared to me.  But he wanted to do it nevertheless so we were back at the dentist last weekend. Now, Ayden has seen big […]

Dynabook Grade Exam

Craft for Children: Sand Name Art

It is craft time again. I love crafting using natural materials. Today, the boys did sand art.  Kids need to explore to learn. They need to FEEL how grainy the sand is and by feeling is not buying them the ‘TOUCH and FEEL book’ but letting them PLAY real sand.  After they are done playing, it’s craft time. I got them to collect the sand in the big bottle for our craft activity.  Using glue, I […]

The 3 Most Tiring Parts of Being a Stay At Home Mom

Growing up, though my Mom did a great job of staying home and taking care of us, it was never in my plan to be like her. I was always that free-spirited person who prefers not to be tied down with chores (especially house chores) and even more horrifying – child care! I much prefer to be working and be someone prominent in the corporate world. Even until the day I delivered Ethan I was […]

Test of manhood.. urm… manliness

A boy is considered a man when some parts of his body are fully developed. However, there are people who believe that a man can only be called a man if he is brave and has done something big to earn the righteous title. In my household, my boys are automatically upgraded to men if they can complete one task – killing cockroach. I am extremely scared of cockroaches. I will sream my lungs out […]
