The Short September Break

The one week break in September seemed so short! Our days were fully occupied and though it can be tiring, we had fun!

Allow me to list down the activities that we had, so that we could have some form of reference for future school break. 😊

:: Tennis Camp

F went for a three-day tennis camp and she enjoyed it. We should be going for another camp for the next school hols and this time round, I must remember to sign up for those that are under ActiveSG. Too bad, Dan is too small for the camp otherwise, I would have signed both of them up!

:: Mooncake Theme Playdate

One of the Dayre moms kindly invited us to her cosy home and even planned a mooncake making session for the kids. They had a first-hand experience in making those goodies and then shortly after, they sent the snowskin mooncake to their Grandma. 👵🏼

I also hosted a mooncake playdough making session but all I did was to open up my place and maybe prepare the ingredients for Takoyaki party. The other moms were hard at work entertaining the kids. 🤣

:: Clip and Climb

F had a play date with her classmates and they went to Clip and Climb at OTH for 90 minutes of climbing. The kids seemed to know what to do and kept trying the different walls. It’s my first time at Clip and Climb and being one who is afraid of heights, I had my reservation. In the end, I decided to try one wall and love it. Just don’t look down. 😅

:: Playground hunting

The kids woke up at 5.30am one day and as I walked into the dining room and questioned why they were up so early, “We are going playground hunting!”

So it was. We went to the far end of Singapore and explored a few playgrounds within that vicinity. It was exciting, to try out various themed playgrounds, hoping on and off the car to discover more.

We could do just that for every morning. Vitamin D is much needed, you see.

:: Siew Mai Making at Nanjing Impressions

I didn’t know anything about this until a mom friend asked if there’s any interested parties who might want to go for this. So, I just put the kids’ names down and turned up! Although the session was short and the kids were just required to make two Siew Mai, it was just fun having them put on the traditional costumes and getting them to wrap the filling.

:: Exercising with friends

By now, you would have realised that we would definitely factor in outdoor activities to get the body moving when we have the time. So when some moms asked to go to the East Coast Park, we were more than happy to oblige.

We probably had more activities that I couldn’t jot down for now. All I can say is that it’s a very busy September school hols indeed!

Kids, they grow up too fast

Last Friday of the June school hols. You mean the hols is going to be over soon? So fast? I don’t recall doing anything much with them! And before I know it, I would have to register the elder one in Primary School. It’s all happening too fast.

The kids had a playdate, thanks to a mom who organised it. The preschoolers must have missed each other too much for they were ecstatic as they met and hugged.

It was a gorgeous morning, and the weather was apt for a waterplay date. This little man had no peers to mingle with but was content with playing by himself. Phew!

Faith was kept busy the whole time with her friends. I wonder if her preschool friends will continue to meet after they graduated from the kindy?

I have made good friends with some of these mommies and it’s such a pity that we won’t be able to meet often once they enter Primary School. But such is life, isn’t it?

Taking every opportunity to capture memories. Many parents have told me to keep a record of their growing up years in motion pictures but I kept having them in still ones.

This boy is growing up too fast, too soon. He made me laugh a lot these days with the things he comments.

Oh, such happy moments. May you have lots of them even as you enter formal school.

Mustela’s limited edition packaging for their good o’ products. They are doing their part to protect the environment by creating awareness in the consumers in reducing and recycling waste and respect for biodiversity. Hence, the limited edition packaging. These are for normal skin type and come in 500ml bottles. The usual bottles come in 300ml.

Just nice for the kids to use during cleanup.

So much joy in their beaming faces. Why do kids grow up so fast?
