Today it's children day celebration at Amazing Star! Hazel was early bright and shine. Always loves to see her smiley face early in the morning. Mummy dress her up asa tinklebell today with Wings too! She looks so pretty!

Keith dressed in jeans , long sleeve shirt and tie all choosen by himself. He also wore Mr Amazing Star with his dressing. Never had to worry on this boy's clothings as he has his own sense of handsome! :)

Teaching kids nowadays has become so so much more challanging compared to the time when mummy was a child. That time , kids are not as smart and out spoken as kids now.

In Singapore , people says kids have no more childhood as they are rushed into school from as young as 18 months , put into all sorts of activities - right brain training , abasus , phonics , piano , ballet , swimming , etc ... parents compares from childcare centres to centres .... they sign up early in order not to be struck in super long waiting lists. They do parent volenteers for primary schools they like when their kids are as young as 4 years old - but to me all these are not Kaisu but a must now so as no to lose out. Eg : boy A goes to full-day childcare when he was 18 months , when he was 4 , he could read cat , dog, bus and knbows his phonics . While boy B went to school for 3 hours everyday when he was 5. when the two boys meet in primary , their spelling lists will be Aeroplane and helicoper. Who will be more stress?

Boy B's parents and Boy B's self esteem is also at risk.

Both Keith and Hazel are in Amazing Star Montessori now. They started school when they are 24 months old. They are not very fast learners , they have yet to learn their phonics sounds or read but their concerntration span is longer compared and more independent then before! It makesa a difference!

I sure pity kids these days but I pity their parents who are working harder to put the kids where they can best effort to give them unconditionally! SALUTE TO ALL PARENTS!

Our little hazel - eating her biscult happily while kor kor keith hides in the kitchen to enjoy his Ice-cream! :)

Recently hazel drinks much more milk and much less food ... Mummy was getting worried at the nutrient she is getting from milk. She wakes up more times at night to ask for milk because milk is simpily not enough for toddler her age.

She is a stubborn toddler and she means it when he doesn't want her dinner or lunch but MILK! She will fuse so much if you refuse her milk! :(

Headache comes and goes all the time with 2 kids at home! Problems seem never ending , adding on with new problems to face with the kids! :)

But with challange there is always laughters and joy when problems are solved and lessons are learnt! :)
