our family "tradition"


this round of his show & tell at school is about family traditions.
kids are supposed to share four family traditions with the class on these color cards....

we let little bb come up with his own....
and we find it very interesting to see what's in his little mind...

we wouldn't really see some of the them as our family traditions...
but we wanted to leave this up to little bb.....  and in his own words...

(very sweet to see that he is already including his little brother........)



.....  while drawing on the cards,
he was very particularly about the exact shade of green, brown, red......
*laugh*
he tried like 5 different shades of brown until he settled with the one he was satisfied with.....
and this brown was for the xmas tree.

making his bed


started a few weeks back,
little bb would make his bed without us asking
as the first thing he would do when he wakes up...

he would place all his friends, pillows on one side
with the blankets placed one on top of another...
his way of making his bed

not bad....
*smile*

here & there




i told myself not to add to our xmas home deco bits & pieces
as we have quite a few already and storage is becoming a headache with limited space at home.
but again, this year,
i couldn't resist the temptation when i found myself in xmas-y shops...
so,
the little corners at home are filling up with bits & pieces of xmas....

yeah! i got it!




a really really really nice tote made by vic playground

i have always liked her creations and i think her embroidery of little furry friends is superb!

awhile i go, i saw one of her made to order tote bags 
and couldn't resist but to order one for myself
so that i can carry my brownie and sugar around....

finally, it has arrived!
i admire the craft work
i love the clouds!
and i couldn't stop looking and patting my brownie and sugar on the clouds
*smile*

we are ready for xmas!!


@ school




it was the first parent teacher interview
and we got to meet each of little bb's teachers

no surprises...

the thing we were most interested in was his art work / exercise sheets on display

so he wants to be a race car driver when he grows up
(he didn't tell us this... *smile*)

and

we can tell he is trying to sound words out and do the spelling...
it took us awhile to figure out what he is trying to say in the second line...
"i can chua"
.
.
.
we think he meant "i can try"

little bb,
mami is most happy whey you try your very best
you don't need to get things right all the time,
it's the effort that counts!
*smile*

we are appreciating his school more and more
how they equally (if not more) focus on the well-being of his body and mind
about being responsible
making good choices
making an effort to try
caring for others

p.s. and i think his little drawings are really adorable *smile*

when a little voice demanded 
"mami?

for breakfast"

"but i am very hungry!"
