Mid-autumn Activities & Crafts (Em @ 3 Years)

I have many fond memories of my sisters & I celebrating mid-autumn when we were kids. We carried candle-lit lanterns. My dad wouldn’t have us carry those battery operated ones. (He sorta raised us like boys.) As a child, it was particularly exciting to be able to play with fire because of the element of… Continue reading Mid-autumn Activities & Crafts (Em @ 3 Years)

Why I refuse to play Pokemon Go

Confession: I thought of downloading Pokemon Go to find out what the hype’s all about, in the name of research. What can I miss by playing Pokemon Go?

Bubs’ raised his hands instinctively to ‘protect’ his block towers from being knocked over & both got into a little… Continue reading Learning To Co-exist Lovingly

A Montessori Morning

I made Bubs an entire set of lower case moveable alphabets a year ago. It wasn’t age appropriate for him back then so you could imagine my joy when I introduced it back to him again. He’s been memorising his name’s spelling as well as his brother’s. Mommy dearest here was more excited than Bubs because… Continue reading A Montessori Morning
