Significant event for this month:
A really ugly haircut. Sheesh, all I requested for was for it to resemble "fei fu" hairstyle...headache.



After walking around in a daze for two months post partum,
I have finally recovered some of my enthusiasm for life in general.
We started Tot School activities sporadically again.


Little Dragon's initiation into Tot School.
She celebrated by pooping midway.

Day 1 of school:
We just played with some flashcards and read some books

Later in the week:

Mommy's latest shopping haul from Mothercare.
 Another floor puzzle is missing
Tiger chose the bottle of playdough equipment


Why all the fancy mancy equipment?
Well, it provides lots of fine motor exercise.
With all the squeezing, pressing, kneading, rolling...

How I missed schooling with Tiger.
He seemed to have matured so much in the past 2 months when we took a break.
When I ask him, " Can you do it?"
He answered with a confident "Yes!"

There was an apple mould in the set.
After we made one, Tiger said, "A is for apple"
Then he ask, "B is for ball where?"
So, I made a ball.
Then he asked for a cat.

We stopped at C is for cat because
my D is for dog would resemble a cat anyways...
@.@

He finally got to play with his colored rice bin after requesting for it for 2 months!
See the mess?
He also requested for his stickers


We ended the night with some reading:
Dr Seuss's ABC
Phonics book by Kohwai & Young



He was so happy to be in his room again that he didn't want his milk or go to bed..hehe!
There's more to come baby, I promise.
