Jean was commenting while looking at some of my recently uploaded pics at my flickr site that Aidan's looking more grown-up. I was thinking the same thing too and we both kinda agreed that it was probably because of his post-surgery eyes. But I can't exactly pinpoint what exactly about his eyes that is making him look more matured.Not all the stitches have completely dissolved yet. Thankfully, the boy is taking care of his eyes very well. He even got angry with his daddy when YC accidentally kissed his eyes (he was aiming for his cheeks). I don't see him rubbing his eyes anymore..he used to do that very often and it was probably because his in-grown eyelashes were irritating them. I think his eyes have gotten prettier and are more sparkly now! :)
My 3 weeks medical leave turned out to be a blessing in disguise (I've used up 2 weeks already). It is very 'timely' because it is Aidan's school holidays now and I spend most of my 'rest-time' planning activities for him. Yes, I'm okay now! Not hurting anymore. The wounds have healed and my anger has subsided. I even went rollerblading yesterday (doctor said I could exercise but not to over-exert).
Let's see..what have we done so far. Went down Orchard Road to admire the X'mas deco and take pictures. Brought him to several mall shows - Barney at Marina, Noddy at Forum Galleria, Dora at United Square, watched Bee Movie and The Enchanted and the musical, Mr Scrooge (jodecro, Aidan enjoyed the show as much as the Gingerbread Man! Love your performance!!). He's looking forward to Power Rangers at Junction 8 this week. He also tried rollerblading for the first time too! It's really nice to be able to spend so much time with him..feels like being a SAHM but then again, I'll be back to work soon so this is definitely more enjoyable then if I'm really one :P
I've compiled a list for all the shows for easy reference for the other mommies! Was quite a hassle trying to check out all the various timing of the show!

Something worth visiting again this year is the Christmas is The Jewel Christmas Musical Light Show & ‘Snow’ Show at Mount. Aidan enjoyed it tremendously last year especially when coupled with the cable car ride! Will probably wait till next week when the stitches should have all gone. Won't want to get too much 'snow-soap' in his eyes :D..
Loads of pictures as usual~

Rollerblading at West Coast Park..
For those living in the West who are keen on having their kids try out rollerblading and do not want to travel all the way to the East, there are rollerblading workshops for kids at West Coast Park at 3pm & 5pm on Sunday (just next to MacDonalds). I'm sure there are other timings ..you can get more details here. The trial class is free and the gears are provided by them! Will most likely be signing up Aidan for a class!
