not quite a milestone

our first attempt to give him potty training
wasn't successful

he was scared by his own "creations" 

we sent him back to do some more reading
about this whole thing with potty and being a big boy

sticky funny slimy for him and him

for awhile,
little bb has been doing his "little experiments" while at the shower

pouring this
pouring that
mixing this
mixing that
stirring this
stirring that

shampoo, conditioner, body soap....

next thing we know,
we find mysterious mixture in the fridge

so he was trying to make slime!
none of his attempts were successful......
he was making up the ingredients and portions himself....

then together
we looked up how to make slime

it's easier than i thought

first attempt was successful!


and yes,
this is bbb's first ever "science experience"!
he enjoyed it as much as his big brother!

@ the wetland park

took the day off from work 
to be a parent volunteer
for the grade's field trip to the wetland park

the weather was just toooo great
extremely sunny and hot!

but the kids didn't mind at all.
endless enthusiasm and energy
kept running all over the park
when the parents are melting under the sun

i tried to put sunblock on him
"no mami, boys don't need sunblock"

i tried to put insect repellent on him
"no mami, they never bite me!  no need!"

your choice!

his first star ferry ride!

all about maritime

it started out as a mini "public transportation" exploration day
i.e. for little brother to take the star ferry for the first time

it expanded into a mini field trip about trading and maritime affairs of our city....
@ the hong kong maritime museum

ended up to be a truly maritime experience!
star ferry rides + loads of info, pictures, models, interactive learning @ the maritime museum!

terrible 2 makes its grand entrance!

it's finally here!!!!!!


i swear there must be some sort of a button inside these little bodies
which gets "switched on" no matter what 
when the internal body clock strikes TWO!

the once sweet little boy
someone who keeps saying NO,
who refuses to cooperate,
who likes to put his little hands behind his back
and walks away when he does not get what he want

having enough of all of this
i remembered a mommy friend who 
used to give a name to this terrible two thing,
the "monster".

every time when her little girl (who is now the same age as our big brother)
threw tantrums
the mommy friend would keep her grace and calmness,
and politely asked the "monster" to get out from her girl.

so i tried with bbb...

i call it the "angry monster"
and show him how he can let the "angry monster" out
by doing a big breathe out and making the sound along with it "HUHHHH"
after that,
the happy angel will come back

to take a step further,
i dig out some cupcake holders and pipe cleaner
together, we did our first craft together:
