Mittens has been attending lessons at Thinkersbox for a few months now, and when they introduced their Intellibox, I almost rolled my eyes thinking, not another box concept! It seems these days the market has been flooded with so many of these monthly boxes which includes everything you need for a good time with your… Continue reading Thinkersbox Intellibox review and giveaway
You can never have too many books, as a friend of mine once said. Well I’ve had to resist buying books recently because there just seems to be too many books and too little time to read. And too little space to store them. Or actually, there is time to read, it’s just difficult to… Continue reading Read to me, Mummy!
Thanks to the the Little Harvard International Preschool, my boys attended a holiday speech and drama session, and they put up their very first performance EVER. Yes, their kindergarten has performances once a year for ONLY the K2s, so I was so thankful for the opportunity. I was also so excited that it was going… Continue reading Christmas Crackers at The Little Harvard Preschool
I was just asked earlier this week if I thought it was “wasted” being at home, as in wasted not putting my education to “use”. It reminded me of a blog post which I read recently, Are Stay at Home Mothers wasting their education or using it to the enth degree? by Thinking Love, No… Continue reading Are stay at home mothers wasting their education?
This Easter weekend has been quite a non-event for us. The last few years I’ve been trying to read what I can about Jesus and the crucifixion to Mittens, but it’s not an easy concept to explain to a toddler. Last year, when I said that there were bad people who wanted him to die,… Continue reading Happy Easter!
As you know, I have two lovely but very active and boisterous boys. Sometimes it can get a bit much, because it’s tough for them to sit still. I wouldn’t go so far as to say they’re hyperactive or have ADHD, I think they’re just being boys. But in an adult world, it can be… Continue reading Don’t judge me because I have boys….
I just had a conversation with one of Mittens’ classmates mother about teaching at home, and the boy (who can’t be more than 3.5 years old) can already spell out the numbers one to ten and is beginning to read! I don’t think I’m the most I’ve been a little lazy recently on the “homeschooling”… Continue reading Homeschooling – August 2011
Recently, a friend asked me about having 2 kids. He’s still at number 1, but thinking and planning for another. I just love a guy who’s proactive in family planning! As a side note, the other day when I asked a lady whom I had just met if she had any children, she answered, “Not… Continue reading Thinking twice about two.
I took the boys to the library twice last week, first to the Esplanade then to Queenstown. Abacus is now at a stage where he is babbling quite a lot, and he will do so more when he is excited and happy, and on the last 2 visits to the library he was particularly chatty.… Continue reading Children will be children.
As Abacus seems to be growing and understanding so much more day by day, all of us seem to be settling down into our routines. Although this is not my first hiatus from work to be at home with a newborn, this time it’s different because Mittens is absorbing things at such an amazing (and… Continue reading Homeschooling
