My dear toddler BoiBoy will let go of his toddler title tomorrow as he turns three. May BoiBoy be a healthy, well-behaved, and sensible boy.

My boy caught a cold over the weekend, and had relatively high fever on Sunday. I brought him to our regular paediatrician, and requested my boy to greet the doctor. I had requested that of him at the start of our one hour wait. This was how he decided to present himself to the doctor… Read More Naughty or shy toddler?

I implemented time outs (in my master bedroom toilet to get my kids out of sight from their loving grandparents), I use the cane more… Read More Seeking reassurance
Time flies. My boy will be two years old in about two weeks. Tonight we had a family gathering for a cake-cutting fun time. Three of them (my elder girl, boy, and younger niece) have grown by so much the past year. Hubby and I gave him a set of fun Dragon-pops-out-from-the-castle family game. It… Read More My boy is two!
Tonight, we had a simple family celebration for my girl. Time flies; she will be two years old in 4 days. She was jumping with joy when her Daddy took out a Carebear birthday cake from the fridge.
