Teaching Aid

When it comes to teaching aid, I like to DIM (Do It Myself!). Of course not everything I can DIM. Sometimes I do purchase the ready made teaching aid. But at the moment, I prefer to DIM as it is cheaper and I can customise it to my liking. Ethan’s favourite as he can ‘peel’ off all the words and zap it back in place… …because I use valcro to place them together. made of […]

Dialogue

Me: What’s your name?Rascal: Ethan Me: How are you?Rascal: I’m fine thank you.Me: How many teeth do you have?Rascal: 8! (Yes, at 20 mths old, he only has 8 teeth.. so sad.. )Me: What time is it?Rascal: 10 o’clock. Though it was scripted, he never fails to amuse anyone listening to it for the first time. ^_^ His favourites at the moment are vehicles and animals. He knows what sounds certain animals make… The last […]

Origami Cat

Did an origami cat head the other day with Ethan. I got his hands to do the work for the “maximum cuteness” effect. Hahahahaha.. can’t tahan to see his extra chubby and rough hands in motion.. If you like this, try my other project: Origami rabbit Coming soon, origami dog.

And he eats happily ever after…

Once upon a time ago, Ethan was a fruit lover. He will never reject fruits of any kind if I popped them into his mouth. He will even self-feed on them. Then suddenly, the magic was gone. He started to reject them. He rejects them so hard to the point that he will spit it all out after I ‘forced’ them into his mouth. He will even run and hide to a land far far […]

Nose bleed

Ethan has not been having nose bleeding episodes for so many months now I am most relieved. But this morning, he bled twice. Once at 12.10am and another time at 6am. Other than that, he is alright now, taking his nap. Just jotting this down for me to keep track of his latest bleeding episodes.

How to start your child on reading (Intro)

Since the posting of Ethan’s reading video, I’ve been flooded with emails asking me to share tips on how to start young toddlers to read. I am all so happy to share my two cents worth as I believe in nothing but to make every child a reader. But, let me clarify with all the mommies and daddies out there that I am by no means an expert in this field and I should not […]

Good Times, Bad Times

During the good times, I had a beautiful house I call my home. It comes with my favourite jacuzzi where I can ‘wash’ my stress away. But then, the economy slows down. I had to sell my house and make do with a more ‘humble’ home. Mommy always taught me to be positive in any circumstances. “Look at the bright side”, she always tells me. So I guess I should be thankful to still have […]

Stolen Sweets Are Sweeter

1st April 2009. Darling told me NOT to go online for there were reports of some April Fool’s virus going around. He warned me that if our desktop were to get infected, it will be MY entire fault and I will have to rectify it at my own cost! Of course, being a 90% computer idiot, I obliged (without a fight!). And oh boy… my misery started from the moment it hit 1st April (Malaysia […]

The musical way…

There is a ‘chicken expert’ in town whose expertise is not only in cooking up finger licking good chicken, but also good in keeping children occupied. It has been a while since I last licked my fingers at this place, but last weekend, we deliberately had our dinner there for the sake of something nice. Something musical. The musical coin box. The coin box costs us RM8.90. The only disadvantage is, it is made of […]

Reading Sentences @ 20 mths old

Ethan has finally started to read sentences. It was quite tricky getting him to focus one word at a time and proceed to the next word and on and on. Initially he was overwhelm with all the words in a sentence that he just look at them and kept quiet! But now, he finally understood what reading sentences means and is slowly getting used to the concept. The whole-word approach is based on research findings […]

3 on 1

Yes, you read it right. 3 on 1, not 3 in 1. ??? Was in the kitchen. Suddenly so quiet in the living room. Whenever I left Darling and Ethan together, they will definitely be very very noisy, running and chasing after each other, laughing and screaming their lungs out. But this time, suddenly everything went so quiet. It always creeps me out when I don’t hear anything from them. Call me paranoia or anything, […]

Night Glow – 1st Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2009

When we got home after the DAY event in Putrajaya in the afternoon, (read about it here) we never thought that we will be there again later in the evening. Only when we arrived home did Darling realised that they have an event called Night Glow later at 8.30pm. So we took our nap and in the evening, went all the way back to Putrajaya. For us, today was our first time stepping foot in […]

What went into our stomach today

I’m not someone who will flip through a recipe book to prepare today’s menu. I just follow my instinct and see what is in the refrigerator. I improvise. I experiment. The result I can confidently tell you… not too good most of the time! Why? Because I make it a point to only spend an hour, not a minute extra in the kitchen to prepare a complete set of meal! A minute extra and Ethan […]

Sleep talking

Daddy Daddy,Daddy Daddy,Hello Daddy,I Love You. Mummy Mummy,Mummy Mummy,Hello Mummy,I Love You. That was the 2 verses of Disney’s Magic English Volume 1 song. Ethan loves that song so much, he is trying to memorise it by heart. Everywhere he goes, he’ll be singing IT. Here is HIS version though.. Daddy Daddy,Daddy… Two Daddy….Two Two Daddy…Hello Daddy… He can actually visualise there are two Daddy words in each line! But somehow his lyrics got all […]

Are you faster than the Stars?

Are you faster than the Stars? If you want to know, head down to 1 Utama new wing today. You can try the ‘I dunno what they call them’, but it’s a place where you can try kicking the ball into the goal and see how fast is the speed of the ball! We were there yesterday and Ethan was quietly sitting in his stroller when he saw some adults and kids checking out their […]

I woke up at 10am this morning! Yes, you read me right, 10am!!! I have not had the luxury to sleep in so late since the arrival of Ethan. But today, thanx to my ‘malfunction’ alarm clock, we all slept till 10am! FYI, I have not been using real time alarm clock since Ethan was like.. 4 months old? He flung the clock so far that it hit the wall and smashed! (the clock I […]

AM I Cute?

I got a surprise in my email today. I got this file ‘AM I Cute?’ That was what Tim decided to name Ethan’s album and he processed it so much sooner than what he had originally promised. So very happy for that.. Thanx a million Tim! Here are a few of my favourites… That bandana doesn’t stay for more than a second on him!Time to replenish lost fluid… I like this… he is looking straight […]

Wheels on walls or anything vertical..

Ethan has come to that stage where he will drag almost anything especially his toy cars onto the wall, mirror, chairs, doors or anything vertical. This new found habit of his is driving me up the wall! Why? Because sometimes his toy cars will leave some unsightly streak marks on the wall or anything that he dragged the car onto. The worst part? He knows that by doing this, he is driving Mommy crazy and […]

The Making Of…

Friday evening, got a call from photographer Tim. He called for a photo shoot for Ethan scheduled for the very next day at 5.30pm. Aiks, so very the last minute! No time to go shop for new clothes! Tim told me to bring some change of clothes for Ethan ie cute, casual, formal and some props too. I had just cut Ethan’s hair the day before so some regrets there… Anyway, the supposed to be […]

Origami Rabbit

Since my previous post, I was reminded of what I used to do before I got Ethan. One of which is origami. I had the opportunity to learn origami during my teaching days. Origami is the art of paper folding. I have forgotten about 60% of what I’ve learnt (what a waste!). But I still have the notes and will go through it once I have the time. But for now, I still remember how […]
