abt my boy...as usual :P



Yeah..haven't been updating my journal that dilligently compared to last year. Part of the reason is that Aidan has been taking up more of my time now especially since he's much more mobile and hyper and his nap time in the day has lessened a lot. Previously, he used to be able to sleep at least two 2 to 3 hourly naps a day...but now, I'll be happy if he's able to sleep for more than an hour at a go. Sometimes, he'll go two days with just one nap in the day and by day 3, he'll be so tired that he'll nap longer hours. Heh but I can't put the blame on him entirely...I admit..I'm getting kinda lazy too..

And yes..his mobility ! So far, he has managed to break 3 cups already *sigh*. Time to go Ikea to restock. Maybe I should just get unbreakable cups :P..My problem is that I always underestimate him and assume that he isn't able to reach certain items which I'd placed on tables/shelves. But Aidan who's ever so relentless whenever he spots anything that looks interesting would somehow manage to get his hands on them. Pretty soon, I have to place everything abt my eye level to be deemed safe from him.

He's been starting to throw minor tantrums whenever he doesn't get his way. Fortunately, they don't last very long. Previously, I could rely on his short-term memory by quickly tempting him with something else but it seems that this doesn't work that well anymore. Sometimes, I really wonder what I should do at times like this. It can be quite trying and I'll try my best not to lose my temper too. Usually, I'll 'explain to him nicely and will just let him 'wail' if he doesn't accept it and he'll stop after a while when he realise he isn't gonna get his way. I really hope that this is just a phase but I do fear that it may only get worse..especially when he gets older and undergoes this self-discovery/identify phase. Fortunately, he hasn't thrown any tantrums when we'll out *cross fingers*..Hmm, hope I'm not gonna jinx it by writing that. And remember, whenever u guys see a kid throwing tantrums and misbehaving outdoors, don't be too fast to blame the parents immediately! You'll understand when u have kids of your own.

I am thinking of signing him up at Julia Gabriel's PlayClub Nest Class. This is not because I'm a kiasu parent and I want Aidan to start learning and 'attending classes' at an early age. I think he's someone who thrives on activity [heh, just like his mom] and at times, I can tell that he's bored with the toys & VCDs at home. I've been attending this 'parenting discussion group' at JG at Evan's Road for the last 2 weeks and I find the environment is pretty good for kids. Aidan enjoys himself when he's there too. Will most likely sign him up for the next semester which starts in a few weeks time.

Here's some pics of the li' ones taken at one of the classrooms at Julia Gabriel...
Aidan loves the toys there and had fun playing with them :)

Tantrums! Arrg I hate this! Yes I cane Reiko and now she's afraid whenever she sees it. And its like taking drugs. Once you starts caning, you can't stop it. So I've been telling myself not to cane Reine cos I know once I started with it, thats the end of Reine :p
And I am so sorry to Reiko :(

I thought of sending Reiko to JG for speech & drama class after hb gave the green light. He usually don't believe in all these enrichment thing but Reiko changed his mind. I taught Reiko tang shi and within one day she can recite it. So hb was saying don't waste her talent.

Ooh I love the beach pic. Very very sweet!

p/s Where do you get that bib? I like this one so much!

I remember u telling me that Reiko can be really mischevious and rebellious..I guess u had no choice but to use the cane. The only issue i have with the cane is that one may end up losing control while exerting strength..especially when one's angry. At least when u use ur hands, u 'feel the pain' literally too. But again, i always stress that every parent has their own right to discipline their child and knows what works best.

So..are u still planning to send Reiko to JG? I find the Evan road centre much nearer than the one in Forum..though one ends up shopping so much more in forum hehe..

Oh the bib was passed to me by a friend who's daughter hardly drools at all. I can ask her where she gets it when i meet her.

Yes I agreed. I used to exert all my force to cane Reiko until they were marks on her legs. It's pain to see. Now I just show her the cane she will be very very afraid.Though at times still have to cane a little but I know how to control liao.

Most prob will enrol her there. Think with Reine around, Forum will be a better choice. Hee hee using Reine as an excuse for shopping :p

Thanks! Let me know when you have ask your friend :)

p/s Oh I am not those ks parent to teach my child tang shi etc. It's my niece's teacher taught her and when she recite, Reiko also wants to learn. So don't get the idea I am a ks parent ya :p
