Children's Day Celebration

Brought Denise to Children's Day service in Jurong on Saturday. Thanks to Teacher Glordia, we were seated strategically in the middle of the hall where the view was the best! The service was well-lined up with games, special performance, Praise & Worship and captivating Bible stories. Denise enjoyed herself!

After service, she received a Friendship Band Art Set and a Hello Kitty Magnetic Board!

In school, she receives a PINK Dining set from her teachers, Miss Wendy and 邢老师. Miss Ada from the Playgroup, gave her a story book titled "I'm in Charge of Me!" and 莫老师 gave her a set of Colour Pencils. Every student in Pat's Schoolhouse receives a book written by a Pat's Schoolhouse Alumnus titled "My Feathered Friends."

What a fruitful Children's Day!

Fever... MC from Wednesday - Friday

Denise woke up on Wednesday with a fever. Kept her away from school for the rest of the week. It's my first "taking care of 2 kids without maid" challenge. I was tempted to ask my mum or sister to help, but didn't.

But everything turned out fine...:)

Debbie is still young and not mobile at all. She needs little supervision!...:) As for Denise, she was a little cranky. And she always have a reason/excuse for refusing to follow instructions... sigh.

Forgiven by an ANGEL

I was so blur today... Brought Denise to Clarke Quay, supposedly to attend her classmate's birthday party. When we reached there, the entire Italian restaurant was empty! Immediately I knew that something was amiss!

The "pizza-making" birthday party was YESTERDAY! Denise has been looking forward to the party...:( and I felt so bad having to disappoint her...

I broke the news, apologized profusely and of course she cried! Then I told her I will bring her to Macdonalds for breakfast and buy her a toy to make it up. She was very very very sad and I knew she was very disappointed.

After breakfast, on our way to Raffles City, she said, "Mummy, all my classmates attended Bryan's birthday party."

"No, you told me Reena did not attend"

"And me also."

Ops! I felt so bad... "Denise, Mummy is so sorry..:(..."

"It's ok, Mum. Nevermind." And she gave me one of the biggest and most assuring smile.

I gave her a big hug and a kiss and said, "Thank you. Come, let's take a picture together. Just you and Mummy!"

Favourite Food - Spaghetti

One of Denise's favourite food is SPAGHETTI! The day we sent the maid home, we decided to go for a mini-celebration. We brought her to Swensen's and ordered Spaghetti for her!

And Debbie? Sound asleep in the carrier throughout dinner...:)

Denise the "Acrobat"

Back At Work

Debbie is exactly 2 months and 4 days old. Today is her 4th day in Suntec Nursery. So far, she has been great! Sleeping and eating well everyday. Auntie even commented that she is very bright and responds very well for a 2 month old baby...:)

Except for bigger eyes, she does look like Denise!

Denise's 3rd Haircut

Yes, you read it right! Denise is turning 4 this December and last Friday was only her 3rd haircut! And the most expensive, so far ($13.90; still cheap comparing to some kids salon charges...:p)

To parents who are wondering when will you ever get to tie your girl's hair... Well, Denise was born with "very little" hair. It literally took us yeee..aaaarrrrsss.... to grow her hair to this length. Her hairstylist-cum-mummy only trims her fringe when it covers her eyebrows. So there is hope for everyone....hahah.....
