Simple decor for my boy's bento, as his mommy was too lazy to think of what to do. I would have just put everything into the lunch box but I knew he preferred to have a little decor for his bento. Yes, my 老二 likes to have 'cute' bento. He often told me his friends would crowd around to see what's in the box, especially the girls.
Little one loves to sing lately. Sometimes, I know he tries to sing twinkle twinkle little star but other times, I have no idea what it is. Nevertheless, I love to hear him sings!

We were invited to sit in for L's Ballet mock exam and I was so happy to see my gal dance. Hmmm.. She doesn't seem confident this time, hopefully she will do well for the coming exam.
Here's some parts of the exam.

Head Cir: 51cm
@ 25 Months Old
Now that he is 2 yr old, I have started sending him to his naughty corner. For instance, once he hit his brother because he was angry, I sent him to the corner. I explained to him what did he was wrong. After 2 mins, I asked him what did he do wrong. He told me "bean bean beat gorgor." He knew he can only come out of his naughty corner when he admit that he was wrong. I told him to apologise to Z and hug him. He did as he was told.
It was not tough to teach him what's a naughty corner. When he was sent to the naughty corner for the for the first time, I told him what he did was wrong, that's why mommy sent him there to 'reflect' (I used simple words to explain to him). He didn't come out of the corner at all! I was surprised! Since then, I have no problem using the naughty corner for him. I would say he is one that takes instructions well, not only at home in school as well (that's what the teachers told me).
♥ He's beginning to say more 2 syllabus words now, the new word is 'Percy'.
♥ He was down with flu & cough on 7th March. Surprisingly, he is willing take medicine! I'm very happy that I do not have to 'force' him anymore.

Look who we saw when we about to leave the house today! Preying mantis! This little fella was still around when my older babies came home. They were thrilled and wanted to keep him as pet! Not to worry, we didn't...

Now that the National Water Safety Council changed the test system, L had to take the bronze award again! Agggrrrhhh.... She should be going for gold! She was so upset & angry that she had to go through it again! Some of her swimming friends already got the gold and had to take the test again too. There are 6 stages now, you can read about it HERE.
Things that she was supposed to be tested on:
- Enter water using a compact jump (done)
- Demonstrate a backward and forward somersault in the water. (done)
- Search for and recover an object in 1.5 m of water depth. Demonstrate a feet-first surface dive.
- Swim 100m Continuously, 25m Front Crawl, 25m Breaststroke, 25m Backstroke, 25m Survival Backstroke or Sidestroke (done)
- Dressed in swimwear, shorts and t-shirt, demonstrate 3 minutes swimming slowly using any appropriate swim stroke, changing each minute (done)
- Perform a throw rescue using an unweighted rope over a distance of 6m. Wade to a person and deliver a flotation aid in deep water. Approach in “Ready” position
- Principles of water craft safety (done)
My princess was only a little nervous but with some of friends chatting & giggling with her, she soon forgot about it.
The tester did not test them on everything that was stated above, he probably knew the group of them were either gold or silver swimmers. Before the test ends, he asked them questions with regards to water safety (which was compulsory). After that, he told all of them they passed the test.
Yay! My girl passed her Bronze award (again)! Well done my girl! Mommy is proud of you!
