Shopping with the boys

These days, it is a challenge shopping with the boys. I don’t remember Ethan being this rascal when he was two but put him and little bro Ayden together, all hell breaks loose! A 20 minute grocery shopping can be really ‘entertaining’ for them but tiring for me.  They both will quickly grab a basket each.  And push it around the alley. Ayden is cheekier. Sometimes he’ll stop at something he fancies and just grab […]

Finally in a car seat again

I’ve been a bad mother. When Ayden was born, I made sure to put him in his car seat whenever we are travelling in the car. We used big bro Ethan’s car seat as it was still in good condition then. After some time (several months), the car seat cover (the sponge) started to tear off. We couldn’t find a replacement for the cover and thought of getting a new seat but Ayden started to […]

Ayden is TWO!

Every time on a kid’s birthday, the mother will start with the saying, “It feels just like yesterday… “ Indeed it feels just like yesterday we welcomed Ayden into this world on Merdeka Day. My Merdeka baby Ayden, born on the 31 August 2013, 3 weeks earlier than his estimated delivery date. A year ago he cut his very first cake. Big brother Ethan decided the theme and decor for Ayden’s birthday bash. Today, he […]

Why do people insists on dressing siblings the same?

I don’t have a daughter. If I do, I am sure to dress her the same as me from time to time. It would be fun to have a mini me parading the same outfit as mine. But yeah, I don’t have a daughter. So what I did was: I dressed the father and son similar. This was before we have Ayden. I have yet to get a similar outfit for all three of them.  […]

The little rascal

Remember back in April I was complaining regarding Ayden drawing on the walls, cabinets, floor and all? *recycle pic* I am glad that was only temporary and lasted only a couple of days. These days, he still likes to scribble a lot but at least he does it on papers.  His latest craze is crayons. Look at his choice of colour. He likes purple and orange a lot.  This is him coloring during my tuition […]

Feeding Ayam Kampung

We went back to my in-law’s place last Sunday and Ayden requested to feed the chickens. To him it’s like a trip to a petting zoo. I used to get very annoyed with these chickens I tell you. It’s not so much the chickens that I hate but their droppings. They are every where and the worst is when you stepped on it before entering the car.  But now with kids, I tend to mellow […]

Road Safety, Traffic Rules for Kids

The rainy season is here again. In fact, it has been raining a lot this year don’t you think so? I have to wake up early to do my laundry or they won’t be able to dry on time as it always rains in the evenings. Ayden and I are so bored being ‘prisoners’ at home not being able to go to the playground that I finally signed him up for an indoor gym package. […]

Vandalism

We’ve been staying here from the moment they completed this housing project until today. Been over a decade I think. Ethan frequent the playground often when he was younger. It was nicer back then. These days it is not so nice anymore. Most of the equipments in the playground has fallen victims to vandalism. Poor Ayden. He can’t really enjoy the playground as much as Ethan had.  See? His head pops out from the slide like […]

Toilet Paper Roll Apple Tree

Ayden is turning two next month. That means he is ready for art and craft activities with me. Today, we made an apple tree using toilet paper roll and coloured crepe paper.  First, I get Ayden to paint the toilet paper roll with brown tempera paste.  He only needs to paint half of the toilet paper roll as we’ll be using only half. I did not cut it first because it is easier for him […]

How to Identify a Breastfeeding Toddler

You know a toddler is still breastfeeding (or was breastfed) when the first thing that comes out of his mouth when you bring him to the lingerie department is ….. Read on. I needed to buy a new nursing bra or maybe just a new bra so I handed the boys over to Darling and went to the lingerie department alone. Ayden kept asking for me so Darling brought him over but the moment he […]

Brothers

Everyday after Ethan leave home for school, I’ll keep Ayden entertained by getting him to help out in the garden, bake a cake, play and going to the playground in the evening. After all that he’ll take his shower and automatically wait at the door for big brother Ethan to come home.  From the moment Ethan walks through that door, Ayden will stick to him like magnet.  He’ll also sit next to Ethan when the […]

Delayed Tooth Growth

At 22 months old, this is all Ayden has: 4 up, 4 down with another one sprouting out halfway.  During Ethan’s dentist visit a week ago, we got the destist to have a look at Ayden’s teeth and she said that Ayden is experiencing a delayed growth for his teeth. According to the chart above, Ayden’s teeth are around 13 – 16 months only. The same goes to big brother Ethan. He experienced delayed tooth […]

Injured

The other day, I brought both the boys to the playground. They were both running when Ethan tripped and fell.  His knee started to bleed. Ayden squatted there quietly looking at his big brother in pain while I called the Daddy (who was at home) to come over with our First Aid Kit.  I cleaned up Ethan’s wound and brought the kids home.  But look who got plastered all over instead? LoL! This Ayden sibok […]

It’s Raining Balls

We were at the playground today when Ayden spotted tiny little balls on the grass. They were everywhere!  He collected quite a number of them and brought them home. I kept them in a bottle.  Now, does anybody know what those are? I do but I just want to see if you know too :P

Easiest Fruit Salad for Kids

Today while big brother Ethan is at school, Ayden decided to help me make fruit salad. Actually I have no problem feeding Ayden fruits. It is the big brother I am having difficulty with. He refused to eat fruits no matter what so these days, I make fruit salad for him. With fruit salads, he’ll at least eat maybe 2 to 3 spoon fulls, better than nothing right?  So let’s make this easy peasy fruit […]

Unwell

With a blink of an eye, the school holiday is over! Where did the two weeks disappeared to? With us busy running around having a wonderful time, Ayden finally succumbed to fatigue and was down with fever, cough and flu. Brought him to the paed when he was not getting any better. Paed said small matter only lah. Lungs is clear with a little phlegm up his throat. Nothing a little medicine can’t fix. But […]

Animal Kiddie Ride

Last weekend was Ayden’s first time riding on those plush animal kiddie ride. At first we let him ride together with Ethan… But he doesn’t enjoy it.  He doesn’t even like it and requested to be taken away from there. He wanted his own ride so we got him the smaller animal ride. And he loves it! Totally enjoying the experience.  And started going around chasing big bro Ethan.  I foresee us burning RM8 every […]

Not So Picky Eater

One thing about Ethan is it’s very easy to feed him. Just get him chicken rice or noodles and he’s good. He loves spaghetti bolognese and will order that most of the time when we dined out. It’s either that or noodle soup lah. It’s easy to feed him BUT he only eats the same old thing every time. My spaghetti boy.. And now there are TWO! Ayden is following his big bro’s footsteps by […]

Applying Saliva to Mosquito Bites to Relief Itchiness

Ayden woke up from his nap all itchy and restless. He kept scratching his legs and when I checked, there were 3 red dots from mosquito bites. Darn. Immediately I applied my saliva onto those dots to stop the itch.  Do you believe it? That applying saliva on mosquito bites will immediately stop the itch? I do as I have been doing that since I got Ethan almost 8 years ago.  When I was younger, […]

Drawing on walls

I left him there barely a minute just to go into the kitchen to wash my hands. I came out to see this: Argh! He ‘conteng-ed’ the wall! Reprimanded him and asked him where else he conteng and he steady only show me ALL his ‘artwork’. There were some on the floor too! Why oh why? Big brother Ethan has NEVER, I repeat NEVER vandalized our walls but this little creature did today! Thank goodness […]

LEGO time

Darling has been regularly dropping Ayden and I off in shopping malls due to the rainy evenings. He pitied us being trapped at home unable to go to the playground so he tries his best to come home, picks us up and drops us off somewhere and picking us up again before fetching Ethan from school. One of Ayden’s favourite hang-out place is at Kids Zone, The Curve.  Kids Zone @ The Curve But today, […]

Topless Ayden

My friend asked me why is Ayden always topless. Frankly, I don’t know. To some people, it is impolite to be topless. To me, it’s okay to be topless if you are a boy or man in the comfort of your own home. Heck, I used to be topless at home too before I got Ethan! It’s the weather we live in. Hot and humid. Which is better? To switch on the aircond 24/7 and […]

Kids Zone @ The Curve

Ayden and I have been down with boredom at home as it had been raining in the evenings the past weeks making us unable to get out for sunshine and fresh air. Finally I can’t take it anymore and told Darling to drop us in any shopping mall on his way to work. It is also my first time bringing Ayden out alone, without the father and big brother Ethan.  Darling dropped us in IKEA […]

Ayden’s Reading Progress @ 19 months and Some Random Updates

It’s 1st of April 2015. Things will never be the same again after today with the implementation of GST but I’m not going to talk about that as I am no expert in this issue. I shall wait and see how this will affect my family’s expenditure. In preparation for GST, I resumed teaching. I am now giving private tuition again at night in my house. I’m so thankful I still have students eventhough I’ve […]

When You Are Ball Less

Having balls is very important. People look up to you if you have a ball or better still, balls coz they want to share share play with you. If you are ball less without a ball you will get bored easily. There’s only so much you can do on the playground equipment. Sometimes, it is nice to run around and kick some balls.  But what do you do on days when you don’t have your […]
