Never underestimate children

Hi folks!

After the long holiday break, I noticed that ZS vocabulary really grows a lot!

He not only can understand what i've been repeating to him, things that happens around him during the holiday, 
he's also well aware of things he should take note of.

One day, at his daycare there is a kid celebrating birthday and obviously he took some of the cakes and admitted
to me."My neck is itchy, i cannot eat cake, got eggs."

I am truly amazed at his memory and the fact that he's absorbing what we've been telling others and indirectly to him all these while.

And, he also been repeating the events and activities that he has gone through during the holiday up till now...he still repeats
every night to me that "Aunty brought me to see Merry Christmas! I sat on the train, etc etc.."

Never underestimate young children, how much they absorb like a sponge. So give them all the goodness we can.

Happy Parenting folks!

FOC training for budding hair stylist

Hi folks!

As Chinese New Year approaching, it's a tradition for us to trim our hair or for some people to change a new hair style to usher the New Year.

And one day after cutting KY hair myself, she requested to cut mine(gasp you might be thinking..what to let a 9-year old to cut my hair??!).

Well for some of you who are regular readers of my blog or my confidante, you would have known I have been cutting my hair for the entire year when I had ZS as a baby as I simply do not have the luxury of time to queue and wait to be attended at the saloon with young baby on tow(no I don't have a maid and too shy to trouble my equally busy siblings who have tows of kids of their own).

So I thought why not? Since I crazy enough to DIY my own hair cutting, why not give KY a chance to try hair cutting? What could be the worst case scenario, run over to the nearest hair saloon to fix my half ruin hair(at most) and perhaps grant my wish to finally have a short crop who his easier to maintain.

To cut the story short, here is the outcome..better than I expected and in fact better than when I cut it myself since she could trim the back and side parts better than me :) cool risk taken has been a training ground for my FOC hair stylist from now on! What a good risk taken indeed!

What is the crazy stuff you would let your kids try out? Do share with me!
