first visit to the dentist






























little bb finally had his first visit to the dentist...

we were planning to bring him for a checkup but kept postponing
until the other day he claimed that he was pushed against the wall by another kid during recess
and his lower left front tooth was loosen by the push.

i couldn't join them as i had a meeting at work that i couldn't be excused...
well, at least i received these photos almost real time...
and i couldn't stop looking at them....  so cute and funny....

so yes, his tooth is loose and permanent tooth can be expected in another three months or so.
as soon as i was done with the meeting i asked somotu if little bb was scared or nervous...
surprisingly, he wasn't!
why?
cuz he got to watch the lego movie on the tv from the ceiling throughout!
*laugh*

100th day of school - 1st project






there is a celebration at school for the 100th day of school....
part of it takes the form of mini projects...

as the kids learn how to count by grouping 10s,
the mini projects are about collecting, counting, and creating art work with 100 items...

used cotton balls for our first mini project after our discussion...

i had this idea of grouping the cotton balls into 10 groups of 10s,
then forming them into clouds.
we could then paste them onto the silver cardboard to make a sky full of clouds...

but little bb had his own idea....

and of course, we went ahead with his idea....

so this is what he made....

100 clouds as the frame....  with rain, thunder, stars, rainbow, sun and a little house...
what a bizarre weather!

happy birthday didi!





had a great time at didi's 7th birthday!
the boys had so much fun running back and forth the mini soccer field...
a big round applause to the daddies for staying on the field keeping the little men busy!

little words

reading his home reading journal is something i look forward to....
the little minds of little people are always so cute, funny, and to the point!



....  and he did remember the time when we lost each other in a very big event...
it was the scariest moment..............
luckily little bb stayed calm and remembered my number..........

little sharing every now and then

we read two books before bedtime tonight
in the first book, a little boy prayed....

i asked little bb if he is still the prayer leader at school
and this is what i got in reply

"mami, Jesus is in my heart
i say a prayer 
you follow me
ok?"

ok ok

"Dear God
thank you for a nice day
thank you for letting mommy go to work
and come home before I sleep
please let Jesus go in mommy's heart
i have Jesus in my heart already
Dear God
Amen"

my reaction to the third line was "???!!!!!!"
you don't want to see mommy???!!!!

luckily, he said his fourth line immediately....
*smile*

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

in the second book, the little cloud joined the other clouds to form a big cloud...
for rain to fall...

i asked little bb why do we need rain?

"we need water
trees need water
we cannot cut down trees
trees are good
they give us good air and take the bad air

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

sometimes i do wonder what is he learning at school
there's no homework, no textbooks, no tests, no exams....
aside from lots of reading...

but everything now and then,
he says and does little things like these
that make us appreciate the school and its teachings.

the minute i stepped in our home

bb2

 photo bb2.gif

for the past number of months,
it's been exciting, worrying, frustrating, tiring, happy, difficult, joyous....

it's no easier (if not harder) than the first time...

but surely, it's been a true blessing.......

thank you God.

.

many thanks to somotu for taking these pictures...

p.s. he is very much against having them professionally taken
as he thinks he can deliver just the same *laugh*

p.p.s. and for saving me a fortune *laugh*

p.p.p.s and it wouldn't be the same without brownie and sugar....
(they love the dress so much that they wouldn't leave me alone
and kept trying to sit on it)

p.p.p.p.s little bb was extremely sweet.... he said he loves the outfits and 
that i look pretty as if i am getting married 
(though i don't know where he got this from *laugh*)

the annual winter carnival

on the third day of chinese new year,
we finally went to the annual winter carnival....

the line at the entrance was extremely long
but luckily it also moved quite quickly....

a year older,
a bit bolder
this year,
little bb tried a couple of new rides...

the rocking tug and the dodgem
he was left with a spinning head *laugh*

happy chinese new year



ever since the arrival of little bb,
it has been my little tradition to make my own red pockets for the dearest
to give them my blessings...

with my extremely hectic new job and more than ever busy family life....
i didn't think i would have the time to make red pockets this year....

almost last minute.... i had all the things ready.... and of course the design i wanted...

so just two days before the new year...
i started working on them....



seeing all the drawings and pens...
little bb was very enthusiastic and wanted to help out....
he drew some flowers and colored them in his colors (black is his favorite)






working through the night...
i finally managed to make enough for the next couple of days................
all of them are one of a kind....

loving the pastel color theme *smile*


.... and among them
the most special one is this one..............
the one and only one made with little bb's drawings... 
*smile*
just for little bb....
