Getting a haircut!

Dear Z,

It was always a battle to persuade you to get a haircut since you were 18 months. Now you are 3 and it is still a challenge. We had to put up with your endless crying at the hairdresser even with Elmo or Thomas videos played from our ipad or phone. 
So, as of late, your Dad decided to try something new and bought a pair of haircutting scissors! Still, it took a good 4 days to coerce you to sit in the bathroom to let me cut your hair. 

Today, I gave in and allowed you to play with the kids apps on my phone while you got your haircut. You sat well, not much fidgeting, except for some whining when bits of hair fell on your body. 

The haircut was over in 5-10 mins and you obediently handed the phone over back to me. To reward you for your obedience, I gave you your 10th star on the star chart which allows you a trip to Hokey Pokey indoor playground. 

It was a good first experience for you and me. Never thought that parenting you would give me my first time at trying something new. Turns out haircutting isn’t that difficult after all. 

Thank you Z! 

Love you lots,

Mama (or Mommy as how you call me sometimes) 


Breakfast Fun with French Toast Cutouts

Decided to try out something different on a Sunday morning with my toddler Z. Got the idea when I looked through Annabel Karmel’s book “The Healthy Baby Meal Planner” which I borrowed from the library. Easy and quick! 

Then I sipped my coffee. I love mornings 🙂 


Milestone #1

Dear J, 

You are 10 months old and today marks the day you stood up on your own without any support, though it was only for 1 or 2 seconds. 

You are a little explorer with an emerging outgoing personality. 2 weeks ago, when I brought you to Fidgets indoor playground, you crawled around the toddler play area to the objects which attracted you without any hesitation. You also tried making conversation with a Caucasian toddler girl which was so cute. Your older brother would have observed and scrutinized the people and objects at the play area before making his move. 
It is an interesting journey to watch both of you brothers grow up and for me to discover your personalities, likes and dislikes.
