School Updates - Beanie

Beanie cries when reaches classroom.    It is getting lesser but he still does.  This morning, he cried the moment I left him there.

I was concerned....  So I asked the teacher when I picked him up.  Teacher C said he is much better compared to when he just started.  He stopped crying when the teachers asked the kids to queue up, maybe less than 5 mins after I leave.  I was relieved to hear that...

Every morning, when I get him ready for school, he is fine.  In fact, he is so happy!  I asked him if he wants to go to school, he said yes.  When I pick him up, he often looks very happy and tells me what he does and what he eats and drink during break.  He also told me he likes his form teacher & 老师.

He is probably too attached to me.. I shouldn't worry too much about it as long as he looks forward to school.

Bento # 296 (2 sets) - Lunch

 In the boxes:  Cherries, lotus, sausages, egg rolls, orange, choc bars and fried rice.
Fried rice with lotus, chicken, & bacon. 
First time cooking this fried rice which I got the recipe from a Japanese website.   Tasted yummy!  Kiddos love it coz there are lotus which is their favourite.

Bento #295 (2 sets) - Lunch

In the boxes: Homemade fried chicken nuggets, apple, corn & soba. Next to boxes: Bear shaped bread balls with pork floss. (Seaweed for soba not in pic)

Today besides the usual bentos, I prepared 2 little bread balls for their breaks.  They usually have breaks on CCA days and I will pack extra snacks for them.  Can't prepare too much for their breaks as Z usually has only 5 mins of it and L will finishes it before even its her break time!  Then I will hear her complaining she's putting on weight! Haha... 

My poor boy did not have time to finish his bento today. He was the last leave and teacher asked him to clean up the classroom.  Left with little time to eat and he had to go for CO.

 I packed the bears and a small choc bar each into small transparent goody bags. 
Little one had the same thing for lunch.  He was so happy when he knew what we were having for lunch and said "Yay mommy!  Hurry!  Let's go home and have our cold noodle!"

Ask Mr Google

Pic taken today
The other day (27th Jan), in front of our car (at the carpartk), was a very tall tree.  It reminded him of Statue of Liberty (click on the words to find out more).  Hmmm....  I wonder why it reminded him of it!  I have been there, read about it but can't recall the story.  Love my hp!  I was able to give him the answer after asking Mr Google!

Z loves to ask lots of WHYs and I love it when he tries to find the answer. At home, I would usually ask him to google it himself if none of us can give him the answer.  When he reads the encyclopedia (any one of it), he would often come to us and ask, "do you know why...."   Not that he is trying to 'show off', he likes to share what he learns.

Love what you are doing, my dear son...  Continue with your this attitude towards learning!

A few of our nieces & nephews came over to our house for gathering.  With these few around, my kids had no time to get bored at all! They look forward to meeting them!

They gambled again and they will not be able to do that till next year.  So let them have fun as they can.   LZ were winning, must be the beginner's luck.
It will not be CNY gathering without having 鱼生.
It's tiger time! Little one drank for the FIRST time!  Evidence showed that JC was the one! Haha...  U can see his expression!  He didn't like it! Ha....

Chess Club Lunar New Gathering 2012

LZ were invited to the Lunar New Year gathering.  Besides playing chess with the trainers, Philip provided meals for the kiddos and ang paos too!

The trainers...  They may be young but these trainers are very good! I heard they started when they were at the kids' age and they have done much better than kids now.  
 The kids trying to beat their trainers but of coz none did! Ha! 
 After chess, we went for more food!  Sometimes I wonder if my kids ever said no to food! Haha... 
 Little one was so tired, that he slept throughout the meal and back home.

Funny Act From The Bros

 The brothers doing funny things again while having meal.  If L wasn't in school, there will be 3 of them doing things like this!

Beanie @ 35 Months

Little one celebrated CNY in school today. He's wearing his bro's old CNY costume and it fit perfectly! Z wore this for CNY 2007, he was 3+yr old then. Haha!  I don't have such good memory to remember when, I scrolled through my blogs to find it!

I am trying to get him to drink other milk and to stop breastfeeding him. My plan is to stop breastfeeding when he turns 3.  It is indeed a challenge to get him to quit...  He doesn't like formula milk at all... He does drink fresh milk but as soon as he finishes it, he asks for me to feed him.  Sigh...  It will probably takes some the get him to quit, especially when he is such a sweet talker.  I give in whenever he 'sweet talk' to me.

@ 35 Months

♥ (28/12) He is learning to shower on his own (he requested it) and he enjoys it.  I think he is too young but I enjoy watching him learning how to.  Very often there's lots of laughter and I think even our neighbour can hear us.

♥ Have started toilet training him (07/Jan) last month and so far he is doing good, 'accident' at times.  He was so happy when he puts on his favourite 'Fireman Sam' underwear for the first time! And he didn't wet it at all!

♥ (18/1) he enjoys doing things that takes challenge.  For instance, I received this free paper clips & colour cards (from blogger friend, Pauline), every other day, he spends lots of time practicing how to clip it on the card according to the colour.

♥ (29/12) Asked him what he wants to be when he grows up, he said "Fireman! Want to rescue people!" Needless to say isn't it?  Since he likes fireman Sam so much!

♥ Love the conversation L had with him (3/Jan).  Also, posting a video which was recorded in Dec.
L: are you a cute cute boy?
B: Yes!
L: Are you handsome or ugly?
B: Handsome boy!
♥ (4/Jan) Little one is such a nagger nowadays...  For instance, during bedtime, he was lying next to me trying to sleep.  I wasn't sleepy so played with my hp.  He nagged at me,"mommy you playing games?  Mommy please sleep."  He said that not once, but many times! Ha!

♥ I always like to ask him this and love his reply.
Me: Do you love papa or mama?
B: I love mama, love papa, love gorgor, love jiejie.

♥ (18/Jan) Little one is so sweet....  I lied on the bed and was complaining cold, upon hearing it, he said "I turn off the fan for you!"  Love you so much my little one!

CNY Day 1 - 2012

First time my kiddos all wearing CNY costumes! 
LZ gambled for the first time and they won!  They knew CNY is the only time they can do that.  While his siblings were gambling, Beanie was munching non stop! 
Feasting at my in-law's place...

At my Auntie's place... 
The cousins...  My little one was not in the pic coz he was too shy when he saw so many adults.  So happy this year coz my dear cousin was back from Italy to celebrate CNY with us!

Reunion @ Home 2012

This is the first time I hosted reunion lunch at our own house on CNY's eve!  And also the FIRST time my parents joined us!

Since my parents moved to their new place, we have decided to host this year reunion at our house and it is easier for my mom.  Dad has not been the same since his stroke, mom has to take care of him full time and we just want them to relax and have a good meal. And my dad is on soft diet, so if we eat out, he won't be able to enjoy the food.  I could see the joy in his eyes and how happy he was, even though he wasn't eating most of the food.  I'm glad we made the right decision, to have them over at our house.

After sending my parents home, we headed down to my MIL's house for reunion dinner as usual.

Here's a pic of my kiddos in their new pajamas before bedtime!

Puppy Love!?

Nowadays, kids start talking about 'love' at a very young age.  Kids as young as P1 are already talking about who has a crush on who! *faint*  I hear all these from my kids, especially my gal!  Yeah, she tells me who has a crush on who, from which class blah blah blah.  Boys 'declaring' their 'love' for who and so on...  Tsk! tsk!  I don't remember starting that young!  Or am I 'old fashion'?!

Needless to say, my gal had a crush on someone.  I'm not going to reveal who he was, otherwise my gal gonna strangle me if I do post it here! Haha! Noticed I used to word "had"?  Recently my gal told me she doesn't like anyone in school anymore.  That was because after chatting with her friends and after some serious thinking, she decided that her studies should be her priority for now.  Phew!  See, it's good that I left her alone to sort it out than to force her to focus on her study or to nag at her.  Haha...

As for my 老二,  he has a crush too in P2!  *double faint*  But it's purely admiration.  It so happen that the girl in class is very good in her study and top the class.   So this year, same thing, he has a crush on a girl who is good in her study too and also in CO.  But I'm glad my boy knows his priority for now is his study.   At least he's NOT going around declaring his 'love' too!  Haha! 

Well, as their mommy, obviously I hope they will focus on their studies first.  I secretly wish that they would stop talking about this till they are older.  Hey!  It works for me!  Hehe....

He used to be quite skinny when he was younger, now he's quite chubby with a slight bulging tummy! I call him "Ah Pui"(means fat in hokkien) now.  Haha...  He's ok with it as long as I don't call him that in public and he said only I can call him that coz I'm his mommy! *proud mommy* Love you my boy!

Bento #294 (L's Lunch) - Mamegoma

In the boxes:  Teriyaki chicken, corn, cherry tomatoes, rice, broccoli, fish cake & apple.

I have been searching the internet for cute character to do for L.  I find mamegoma so cute and simple to do which is good for me coz I always don't have enough time.   Surprisingly my gal knew what is was!   She was happy that I packed her food into the new bento box that we bought from HK. Yeah, her favourite character for now.

It has been such a long time since I prepared a 'cute' bento for my kiddos.  It's the first bento for this year, decided to make something nice.  Z likes Naruto so tried my best to make one for him.  Naruto was made up of egg sheet & ham.

Beanie 2nd Day @ School

 Second day was so much better!  He was more at ease and able to sit down at the table on his own, without us having to squat next to him.  He listen to story telling and picked toys that he wanted to play with or books that he wanted to read.   Less crying from the classmates too.
One of the reasons he probably looks forward to going to school was the playground.  We could see that he really enjoys it there.
Back to the classroom, he played with more toys.  This time, we moved out of the classroom and observed him.  I told him we will wait for him outside and he was ok with it.  So far so good.   The proper lesson will starts next week, this 3 days were for the kids to get used to the new environment. The drama will probably begins when we have to leave him there and hope it will not be too long before he settles in.
