Little J Goes to School

Wednesday, 10 April 2013

Ever since I got pregnant with Baby J, I have spent less time doing activities with Little J. His frequency of outings has also decreased, even our weekly morning walks had to be cancelled. I am feeling so guilty over this and regret that I am not doing enough for his learning developments. Especially now that he is in the stage where he is really curious and learns really fast.

So, Daddy and Mummy have decided to send him to school. Well, it is not really school, but a weekend playgroup. We thought it would be a great opportunity for him to learn to interact with other children and learn more things.

He started his first lesson last Saturday. Since it was his first time in class, he couldn't sit and stay still like other children. He prefers to walk around and touching every single things he could come in contact with. He was also reluctant to play with kids as well.

It is a one and a half hour class. We started with free play and follow by a greeting song. We then sing the phonics song with emphasis on the Letter of the week. We are on the letter L this week and we read a story about wild animals with introduction to the Lion. We then proceed to make a lion mask and face painting to look like a lion. Of course, J was reluctant to let the teacher paint his face and he also can't concentrate on the craft. End up, I did this mask for him. A lion with hair all around the face.

After the craft session, it is time for Montessori activities. The teacher will introduce a particular activity and the kids are encouraged to try it out. Or they could choose to do other activities. J played with the puzzle for a while and starts to roam the room again.

We ended the class by singing the good bye song. I hope that J will slowly learn to appreciate the class and will behave more appropriately in his future lessons. 

Wordless Wed: Joy of Eating

We had our breakfast at Swensen's on Saturday and ordered a kiddy set for Little J. He thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a joy for us to watch.

Our 13th Anniversary

Monday, 1 April 2013

I woke up today realizing that it is 1 April. Not because it is April's Fool, but it is our Anniversary! How could I forget such an important date. It had been 13 years since we got together. How time flies. 

We kinda stop having any elaborate celebrations since we get married and when Little J came into our lives. But today I thought of getting something for him to show him some appreciation for what he has contributed to the family.

He loves watches. But it is too last minute to hunt for a suitable watch for him. And I worry about getting something he doesn't like. Maybe that will wait till we reach our 10 yrs wedding anniversary. 

Thinking of getting a wallet but he is particular about the material and brand. So, I can't possibly just buy any wallets for him.

He loves gaming too. But no way am I going to get something which will decrease the amount of time he spends with us.

After much thoughts, I have decided to get him a yummy chocolate cake. He loves chocolate.

We had a mini celebration!
He enjoys the cake too
Thank you for taking care of me and being there for me. Thank you for helping out with the household chores and taking care of Little J. And I'm sure you will continue to do your part as a Daddy to our second love too. I love you!
