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
Earlier this week, we brought the entire family, nephew and MIL to Gardens by the Bay. Now, I’m always a little weary whenever the nephew is around because it seems like all 3 boys will just go berserk wherever we are – be it a shopping mall, or just taking the lift somewhere.

This was my fourth time there (and hubby’s fifth), and Mittens second. Abacus stayed home, otherwise it wouldn’t have been a holiday for me. We really like the Maldives… Continue reading Under the Maldivian Sun

I had heard that elder children sometimes take up to a year to get used to a younger sibling, and boy are they right, since Abacus has… Continue reading Brothers
The 2 boys have been sick since something like last Wednesday. It kinda spoiled the school holidays because I would have wanted to bring them out more, but oh well, I guess s*** happens. No actually I should say, germs and contamination happens! Actually it was probably my fault for letting Mittens stay over at… Continue reading Two Sickies
