Now that we have been plagued with days of haze, I have been actively and unabashedly wearing my mask everywhere, because I’m tired of having a niggling cough that’s lasted for over a month, and I’m not asthmatic but too long out there and I feel my lungs getting tight. So while I’m starting to… Continue reading A heart story (and a new hospital for all our children)
It’s October again! As autumn rolls by and you wonder where your year has gone and what you’ve (not) achieved this year, throw caution to the wind and drown your sorrows with some sweets. All the better, have some desserts for a good cause! Similar to what I wrote about last year, Sweet Charity, the… Continue reading Sweet Charity 2012: Desserts for a Cause
In university, I watched with great interest as my flat mate and neighbor went through tubes of UHU and other materials, creating trees and even people, and put together their architecture models for presentations. It was then that I first picked up Wallpaper magazine and was enthralled by Scandinavian design. Fast forward a few years,… Continue reading Design for children
Yesterday we had our yearly review with the paediatric cardiologist, and as expected, Abacus’s heart is doing well and good – the cardiologist listened to his heart (and I’m always amazed at what they can tell just by listening), and liked what he heard, and the echocardiogram confirmed that all is well. Abacus was a… Continue reading Counting our blessings
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
We were at NUH again on Friday for a follow up on Abacus’s bronchitis, after bringing him to the A&E on Monday. The appointment itself was pretty fast, and after buying packed lunches (I prefer to feed them at home rather than struggle outside) I brought the boys past the Paediatric ICU (ah, memories), up… Continue reading Blessed are the children

These last 2 weeks have been an interesting one for Abacus, with 3 falls, 1 bad flu and 3 visits to the Children’s Emergency at NUH. On our last visit, Abacus was clearly not loving the place and I had a hard time placating him and trying to get him to stop crying. He first… Continue reading 2 weeks, 3 times at the A&E.
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
