Denise 3rd Birthday Celebration

Denise's actual birthday falls on Dec 27, which is too near to the end of the year. We decided to celebrate her birthday earlier in school.

I think 3 years old is a good age to start celebrating a kid's birthday. Everything that she had that day was decided by her...
- A Barney cake
- A Barney "pull-string" pinata (each child takes turn to pull a ribbon; only one ribbon releases the candies inside. Recommended for younger children as they do not have much strength to hit the usual pinata)
- Yakult for every friend
- "wang wang" biscuit

It was truly a tiring affair for me but the children enjoyed themselves. Especially when the candies dropped from the pinata, they went wild! Everyone was on all four, trying to grab as much candies as possible.

Thank you to Denise's friends for all the presents! You certainly made Denise's day!!!

Bob The Builder

Whenever we drove past United Square, Denise will exclaimed at the sight of Bob The Builder's banners hanging on the street lamps. I, very much, wanted to bring her but felt that the ticket is a little too pricey for a 45mins show.

Thank God for nice colleagues! One of them gave me 2 free tickets to a Friday afternoon show. Immediately I took half day leave to bring Denise. Sure enough, it was nothing spectacular. If the tickets were not free, I would not have brought Denise. Watching the VCD at the comfort of our living room would have been more enjoyable for me. But of course, this is never about me, isn't it?

Denise was totally thrilled!!!

December 10, Milestone for Denise

December 10, 2006 marks an important milestone for Denise's development! She finally stopped after nursing for 2 years, 11 months and 13 days!!!

It was easier than I thought. I told her that "mummy has a baby and she needs to give mummy's milk to baby" and explained to her that she is old enough to eat other food and drink Milo but baby is very young; baby only drinks milk. Initially she says she will "share" but eventually agreed that she will "give" the milk-milk to baby! How sensible!

Since then, she has not been nursing at all!!! There are times that she will ask me if she can drink milk-milk, but when I remind her that baby needs milk, she will not ask anymore.

Like what Pastor Ulf prophesied about her during her baby dedication, "she will understand complicated things"... Indeed, at such a young age, she is already understanding complicated things...:)

Trip To KL

This week, we went to KL to celebrate Auntie Sharon's birthday. Denise was very excited as she was looking forward to visit her best friends, Nicole and Joshua. When we were there, she did not even want to go out with us. We just left her at their place and she played with them the entire day!!!

It was a 4 day trip that left us even more tired. Denise woke up with puffy eyes this morning. Must be due to the lack of sleep...:p
