Art & sunshine to chase away those Monday blues

We missed school today.

Our routines are established as such Mondays are carefree days filled with art & random creativity. I like Mondays to let free the inner creative soul in children. It’s such a beautiful way to start the first day of the week.

This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalms 118:24

I kept a huge piece of cardboard for moments like this. Made a marble-run maze using ice-cream sticks as tracks. Bubs was more interested in flipping it, running around with it and throwing the marbles into the air. Anything BUT roll it properly along the tracks.

Geez… boys.

Art Attack Monday: All about me body cut-out & decorating it using loose parts. I made a loose parts stationary box for random art.

This is our nth body cut-out and it never gets boring. The cut-outs only gets bigger!

Pasted some polaroids on his cut outs, talked about his favourite things, favourite people & what he would like to do in the future.

Tea time! We sang Five Little Monkeys Jumping On The Bed, ate pomegranates & watched Jamie Food Revolution on tv.

Little E loves pulling himself up every chance he gets. It’s all about movement, music & dancing for this little man these days.

We all sang & danced to National Day Parade songs… all those ‘oldies’ like Home, Where I Belong, Count On Me. Watched last year’s 2015 National Day Parade on Youtube where Bubs wanted to watch all the army tanks’ Strength In Action drive pass – 5 times!

We had lovely weather this evening so we strolled over to the neighbourhood mall.

Just me and the two boys.

Bubs scooted while I baby wore the little one.

We noticed patches of wild mushrooms sprouting along the way which wasn’t unusual for Bubs. He would often spot these wild mushrooms during our daily walks after a season of rainy weather.

There he is on his daily mission to buy waffles & play with the bar code scanner at the grocery store.

He is so familiar with the bakery aunties selling those waffles that I’ve taken the liberty to let him order & pay for his waffle on his own, since he asked to do it himself. I’ll just stand around and watch him all grown up & independent.

We took a short bus ride home just because this boy wanted to. Baby E squealed with excitement throughout the entire bus journey! Can’t believe this little one is turning one in a few weeks.

Oh, motherhood.

The days are long but the years are short.
