Outdoor Learning Activity for Toddlers

Big brother Ethan is still feverish hence he skipped school again today. In the evening, the weather was very beautiful; sunny and windy so I brought them to the playground for some fresh air and sunshine.  After spending about half an hour playing on the playground equipments, I introduced a simple color learning activity for Ayden. It is always fun to learn outdoors as the resources are endless. For today’s activity, I suggested for the […]

Boys day out …

I went to bed after 2am last night or rather, this morning as I was rushing out some work.By 4am, Ayden woke up for milk. I was like, “what?” He doesn’t usually wake up for milk anymore so why is he awake now? I touched him and noticed he was warm. Darn, he is feverish. He was feverish but not too high so I just nurse him back to sleep without giving him any medicine. He […]

Toddler Gym vs Playground

I’m writing this post because while I was shopping last weekend, I was approached by some very persuasive sales person insisting for me to sign Ayden up for their toddler gym. I don’t get it why we need to fork out a fortune just for our toddler to run around trying to sweat it out in an indoor playground with aircond. Why can’t we just bring them to the outdoor playground with sunshine and fresh […]

Coconut Water to Beat the Heat

Many people are falling ill under this torturous weather. I boil barley frequently for the family as they (especially Ethan) are getting really heaty from being out in this scorching heat. Ayden and I are quite okay as we spend most of our time in the comfort of our home but Ethan and the father are always out and it is important to keep them well hydrated. Ethan’s nose bleed episodes are getting more frequent […]

How to Court a Girl

How to Court a Girl. Wooing a girl is an art many boys fail miserably at. Boys often appear desperate, in a rush and lacking in self-confidence. Girls like strong boys. Boys who are confident of themselves. We don’t like clingy boys. We like macho, macho man :P Rule #1 in courting a girl is NOT to let the girl know you are courting her (yet) coz girls can really jual mahal tak kena tempat. […]

Apple vs Pomelo

Time has changed. At any gatherings, show me a kid without his/her tab and I’ll show you TEN other children WITH their gadget! Same goes with Ayden and my cousins’ toddlers at our recent CNY gathering. The tab is so incorporated into our lives that it seems almost impossible to get around without it.  Don’t get me wrong though. I am not against these gadgets as kids do learn a lot from it and it is actually […]

Ayden’s Cold Milk Spa

Ayden had bread for tea break today. After that he proceeded to the kitchen to play with coins. I was hungry so I got myself a bowl of cereals with milk. I sat down next to him and happily shared my cereals with him. He loves Honey Stars so he kept coming nearer to me for more. We just had like two scoops of cereals when he tugged my arm for more. I was holding […]

Homeschooling a Toddler – Reading Activity

The reason I prefer to homeschool Ayden than to send to playschool is because I can guide him as and when he is most comfortable and feels like it. This is especially important during reading session as it will be almost impossible to teach a toddler when he is sleepy and cranky. At 16 months old, reading is not limited to word cards though I use mostly wordcards for our reading lessons. I introduced word cards […]

Killer Eyes

People always tell me Ayden looks Korean. I guess they must have meant he looked like Koreans before having their double eyelid surgeries :P  People also said Ayden looks very similar to me. What? Where got… He has nicer eyelashes. I have almost none existing eyelash. If I get into a sand storm, I’ll go blind immediately for there will be nothing to shield my eyes. I have to resort to falsies for that ‘camel […]

Homeschooling a Toddler – Colour Sorting

Continuation from our first homeschool activity of beading/threading, we are going to proceed with the second activity a toddler can do at home today. It is never too early to expose a toddler to the world of colours. If you watch your toddler closely, you’ll discover that he/she will usually have a preference towards a particular colour. Always start with that colour to capture his interest.  My 16 month old Ayden loves playing with building […]

Homeschooling a Toddler – Beading Activity

It’s the second day of school for the big brother Ethan and Ayden is left alone at home with me. Now that Ayden is 16 months old, I can start ‘homeschooling’ him just like what I’ve done with the elder brother years ago. By ‘homeschooling’ I mean keeping Ayden occupied by giving him lots of playtime to improve his fine motor skills. Parents these days have all the luxury to splurge on their kids when […]

Behind The Scene of Ayden’s OOTD shots

Ayden loves taking OOTD shots. If you don’t already know, OOTD stands for Outfit Of The Day. He loves dressing up and will not hesitate to let me take a shot of him. All we needed to do was to say OOTD and he’ll ‘stick’ himself against the wall for us.  After each shot, he’ll check the picture to see if it’s nice… He can really give us many shots from which I will eventually […]

Trudy & Teddy new boutique opening in One Utama

I have always love Trudy & Teddy’s timeless classic European style with a touch of modernity. I like their fine workmanship and their designs are simply outstanding. I’ve been dressing Ethan up in Trudy & Teddy apparels since it was born in 2010. Ethan was three years old then. * Archive picture of Ethan (3 years old) in Trudy & Teddy top to toe. Imagine my delight when I saw that they will be opening […]

DIY Pacifier Holder

Ayden doesn’t use pacifier but recently because he is teething (yes, his top two front teeth are finally making their appearance) he likes to bite on them a bit. He doesn’t use them long. Just a suckle or two, a couple of bites and that’s it. But this will repeat after an hour or whenever he feels the itch.  I got fed-up having to hand him the pacifier and take them away and give it […]

Would you let your kid play in puddles?

Ethan loves watching Upin dan Ipin. Actually I love watching them too as they feature the life and adventures of the good old kampung lifestyle. Just the other day, we were watching an episode where the cute twins went fishing and Ethan asked me, “Mommy, how come we never go fishing? How come we never do what they do?” I did not know what to answer him. I did whatever Upin and Ipin did but […]

Anything Panda

Ayden loves panda. I don’t know why but he has a soft spot for anything panda. He was extremely happy when we got him these pandas from Silka Cheras not too long ago. Ayden with Kung Fu Panda at Red Carpet, I-City Shah Alam. Ayden to Panda at Hamley’s, “Friend, you’ve got to try to get more sleep. You have a serious case of panda eyes there” Last week, I bought some Meiji Hello Panda […]

A quick trip to KL Tower

Ironically, after ranting on my previous blog post regarding people always commenting that Ayden is skinny, I caught a chubby picture of Ayden today. There! Doesn’t this make you feel like biting his cheeks? :D I had a blogging event to attend too in Menara KL today hence Ayden being all dressed up. I’ve not been to Menara KL for ages! The last I came here was with Darling decades ago during our courting days. […]

Stop Saying My Toddler Is Skinny

One of my greatest pet peeves as a mother is when people see my toddler and start going, “Oh he’s so skinny!” I got that with Ethan and now history repeats with Ayden. This was Ethan @ 14 months old This is Ayden at almost 14 months old.  Both Ethan and Ayden were born small but caught up and tripled their birth weight in no time. They have chubby cheeks as a baby but people […]

Baby Sign Language

I bring Ayden along with me all the time for my blogging events and most of my blogger friends are amazed at how well we communicate. Well, Ayden can’t really speak yet. All he can say now are just THERE, MILK and BREAD but what he can do is communicate with us via baby sign language. I read about baby sign language before Ayden was born. I learned that babies understand though they can’t really […]

Breastfeeding a toddler

I did not manage to breastfeed Ethan for more than 3 months. By the time he was 4 months old, I fell sick, my supply dropped and I gradually weaned him off. I blame it on my lack of knowledge and support back then. I feel much regret each time I think about it. Every time he gets sick, I’ll blame myself for not trying harder to breastfeed him. With Ayden, I was very determine […]

Ride-On Car

Remember in my previous post I mentioned we went car shopping last weekend? The first stop was at AEON 1Utama and boy I tell you the service sucks big time. The sales person scolded us when we asked if there is any display unit for us to test.  Sales person: Tak ada. Kalau awak bayar dulu baru saya boleh pasang dan awak boleh test. Me: Apa? Bayar dulu? Baru test? Kalau dah bayar buat apa […]

Ayam Kampung

We were back at my in-law’s yesterday evening. Ayden the adventurer did not want to stand still and preferred to walk around so I brought him outside instead. Ayden playing with stones while the big brother Ethan was eating in the house.  It was also Ayden’s first time seeing real, live chickens.  He was so fascinated looking at the KungKung feeding those chickens. We did not let him enter the chicken coop though because I […]

Fascination with Dried Leaves

Ever since Ayden started walking, he won’t want me to carry him in the playground anymore. He’ll want to explore and touch every single thing. I find it cute, exactly like Ethan. I brought Ethan to the playground every day too when he was as young as Ayden and continued until this year when he started school in the evening session so he doesn’t have time to go to the playground during weekdays anymore. Pity […]
