my boy!

he has really tiny feet..!

Yo man!

Took 2 days off from work last week to spend some time with the boy since it was the school hols,which is why there's tons of pics of him and us. I used to think 21 days leave was quite a lot and had problems clearing my leave. Not any more. Nowadays, when I'm not that swamped with work, I'll just take half day off to be with him.In a way, I'm just trying to see if I can be somehow more 'involved' with him. Maybe it's because as a wohm, I sometimes feel that I'm missing out just coz I'm not around most of the time. Just being able to bring him for his swim lessons once in a while and witnessing how much he has progressed makes me happy. Sounds a li' silly eh..


Aidan loves having company! When he knows that friends are visiting, his face will light up and will constantly ask me when they are arriving. I guess it's probably because he's an only child and has to play alone most of the time. And he's sociable by nature too!

That is why I've signed him up for various activities in the afternoons during the weekdays after kindergarten. His kindergarden classes are from 8am to 1.30pm from Mon to Fri. Here's what his weekdays schedule look like.

Mon : 8am-1.30pm - K1 at Kinderland
Tue : 8am-1.30pm : K1 at Kinderland, 4.30pm - 6.00pm : Phonics lessons at Petra Education
Wed : 8am-1.30pm : K1 at Kinderland, 3.00pm - 4pm : Art classes at Gifted Artists
Thu : 8am-1.30pm : K1 at Kinderland. 4.30pm -5pm : Swimming Lessons
Fri : 8am-1.30pm : K1 at Kinderland. 7.15pm - 9pm : Chinese classes at Berriesworld

Some may think that I'm just being a kiasu mom, overloading my kid with tons of enrichment classes and robbing him of his precious childhood. But honestly, if Aidan had shown any signs that he abhors attending any of the classes, I would have allowed him to discontinue them. But he truly enjoys these classes. Ironically, one way of 'punishing him' is by threatening to withdraw him from them (eg. "Keep your toys NOW if you want to go for Berries class later!")

Best part I'm sure is that he gets to see pals regularly as a result. alisonraeJean's Alison, jinsiewJinny's Gabriel & bbhomeJune's Ryan are in his swim class and the 2 boys are also signed up at Berriesworld.

Swimming Class with his pals..

The 3 boys monkeying ard :)

Aidan...on his way to his chinese class..


The kids loved the show. But the adults...well, I saw Macy's dad nodding away. I was bored too. Maybe I just don't have a vivid imagination but I just couldn't see them as fishes and sea creatures. I think mrbrown said it best on twitter "It's not Nemo on Ice. It's an orange skater with boobs in the shape of fish eyes."

Pics as usual

Yeah my first thought when I saw Nemo was "Wow, big boobs!"
Mar. 21st, 2007 01:56 pm (UTC)

Mar. 21st, 2007 02:09 pm (UTC)
I know... I have been arguing with Macy over the sex of Nemo. She's been looking at the program everyday and says that Nemo should be a boy, not a girl.. haha..
Mar. 21st, 2007 02:27 pm (UTC)
hohoho..how to argue with that? nemo with boobs is the best evidence already :P
Mar. 21st, 2007 02:15 pm (UTC)

i really think the nemo skating show looks damn obscene too. hahah!

anyway, i really need to say this: you are the coolest, hippest mum ever on lj, and you have the cutest looking son!
Mar. 21st, 2007 02:29 pm (UTC)
heh i bet you don't know much mummies on lj right *grin*

Looking hot as usual - and eh, is the swim coach yandao? =) I like how the boys all get to learn swimming in cool surfer outfits; poor Alison OTOH has the same kind of suit I used to learn in at that age. At least hers doesn't have that silly ruffle around the hips. (What WAS my mother thinking?)
Mar. 21st, 2007 03:48 pm (UTC)
alamak..why is everyone interested to know whether the coach is cute *grin*

i think when i was young, my swimsuit had those ruffles too :P

I find the Nemo costumes FREAKY! I mean for goodness sakes it's fish with legs! *faints* But I have to say the hat is pretty cute!

Mar. 21st, 2007 03:53 pm (UTC)

this year is the first time I skipped Disney on Ice. Don't think I can sit thru the entire Nemo story. A variety of stories would be more interesting.
Mar. 22nd, 2007 03:43 pm (UTC)
it was my first time there..and prob the last :P
