For Mittens’s 6th birthday, I wanted to do something different and fun for the kids. I’m not partial to magicians, entertainers, balloonists, etc. although there’s no denying that the kids love it. He is an adventurous and outgoing boy, currently enrolled in soccer and ping pong (?) class and would be in Aikido if not… Continue reading 6th Birthday Party at The Rock School
There we have it, we’re finally done with all the birthdays in the family for the year, and we certainly enjoyed them all. After organising two birthdays, I was feeling a little birthday fatigue, and almost wanted to go with a simple party at home for Scout. After all, she’ll just be one, and she… Continue reading My Little Girl’s First Birthday!
And so there we have it, two birthdays down, one to go, adults not counted. I have been feeling particularly lazy recently, and was even mooting having a birthday party at home for Abacus, but hubby felt that since he’s older now and would enjoy it more, we should throw him a small party. Fair… Continue reading Happy Third Bird-day!
Last week Mittens turned five and Scout five months. We celebrated with cake for Mittens and scraped apple for Scout, which she did not like at all. Both of them have grown tremendously in recent months, in different ways. Mittens can now cycle proper after striding on his bike for a month or so, and… Continue reading Turning Five
Some mothers do a really awesome job of organising birthday parties, with the most amazing details to the party theme, decor, venue, goodie bags, and cake. I, my friends, am not one of those people. This year we booked a yacht for Mittens’ fifth birthday, but we were so busy every night that we hardly… Continue reading Son Turns Five, Mother Barely Pulls Off Birthday Parties
Many parents are very diligent with teaching their kids sign language from an early age. With Mittens, I did read (ok flip) through a few baby signing books, and tried to teach things like “milk”, but felt that it was too much motor skills involved (at least for “milk”) for an 8 month old. After… Continue reading Birthday Tiger
Last year we did two pretty big parties for the boys, so this year, I decided to top what we did last year.. NOT! I’ve been far too lazy and lethargic to plan anything although I did try and do a little research. In the end we just did a makeshift CNY-dinner with a birthday… Continue reading Birthday season begins!
That alliteration sounds a little like it comes from one of Mittens’ phonics books. Heh. This month feels like we’ve had so much going on. We’ve done a trip to the Maldives. We’ve had the birthday celebration of the year, and maybe decade, so a lot of the first half of the month went into… Continue reading Maybe May may be mayhem!
This last month or two months have really seen Abacus grow by leaps and bounds. Ok so he’s not really leaping and bounding, but he took his first step a day before his 11th month birthday, and then the walking took a hiatus for a while, then closer to his first year he’s been walking… Continue reading Baby A – One year, no longer a baby!
After a few months of planning, we finally had the birthday party of the decade. Well, for us, anyway. At over 100 adults and 50 or more kids, we’re definitely not planning to do anything as large as this for some time now. Maybe if I’m feeling generous I’ll arrange a party for him at… Continue reading Abacus turns 1!
