My Pre-K princess

So, my girl has started schooling this year. She will turn 3 anyway by may. We thought it will be a great idea to expose her school environment and to better prepare her for kindy. Besides, its much better than watching cartoons at nanny's.

So when she started school, it didn't go as expected. You can read my ordeal here.

Now, 3 mths after, things has been good. She finishes her bento almost everyday *beaming with pride*. And, she's suddenly improved a lot on her speech, her pronunciation has gotten much much better. She can sing so many songs nowadays, some new songs she learned from school. And last night she did the school's cheer. She also don't get sick as often as before now. Things has been looking good. :)

When asked if she likes to go school, she will say she likes it, when asked what she did at school, she said “吃东西” what the !!! AHAHAHA, and proceed to tell you what she ate. Anyway, its good to know she enjoyed what we prepared for her. We try to prepare different things everyday. I try to include fruits into her bento. Be it strawberries (her fav), grapes, apple slice or pear slice. She put on her own socks and shoes everyday. *SMUG*

Since she has been singing a lot, she tries to delay her bed time by SINGING!!! Among her favourites are ABC song, Twinkle twinkle little star and 我的朋友在那里?Most of the time, I will be asleep before her 'x' So nowadays, I don't play songs on the phone anymore for the baby in my belly since jie jie will sing every night. And baby will be kicking in the belly as response. :)

No. 2

yup, we did it again.

As for now, I am 4 mths 1 wks pregnant. 'x'!

How did we found out? My menses was late, and i didn't even suspect that I am pregnant, only oink is suspicious. It couldn't be. Its nearly impossible. The app in my phone indicates that its a safe time. Its way past my ovulation period.

It was until I had  a prolonged cough that just wont go away. I went to the dr, and got some meds. It was then, just to be safe. I used a test kit. And to my horror, 2 lines appeared! Still I cannot believe I am pregnant. I must be sick! Cos i read somewhere about a guy who tried to play on his wife's test kit, got 2 lines and went to check and found out he had prostate cancer! I was troubled the whole day. What if I am sick? Tomato is still so young , she needs her momma. Or could it be that I am pregnant? But its too soon...we had plan to start production later, preferably during our upcoming korea trip :D.

So after a day of pondering, I shared my dilemma with Oink. Who said we should go to the gynae straightaway. And behold, the ultrasound scan showed that I am 5 wks pregnant! So the damn app DID CHEAT ME.

I love you

I have been greeting Tomato good nights before sleeping followed by I love you. She has been doing the the same back to me.


Last night (3rd Feb 2015), she suddenly called me "Mommy..." So I turned my head facing her. She put her little hand on my cheek and said "I love you" awwwwww... My heart melted and I said I love you too. And a tear escaped from my left eye. Moments like this makes your forget all the troubles your little one gave you..AHAHAHHA

Dear God, please give me more patience & strength!

I have been feeling under the weather lately. Being plagued with coughs and then towards the end, I was infected by flu through Tomato.

Tomato has started her pre-K not long ago. We enrolled her at a nearby Kindy for the convenience. Its like 3 mins drive away from home.

Everyday when we pass by the school, she will sweetly say "Mommy, I want to go to skoo". Then I will tell her soon baby, soon. So the day finally came, she can't wake up -______________________-. I had to pull her up from bed and get her ready in a rush! I was nervous! Anyway, after much effort, we manage to get her ready. And she seem ok, no crying, curios-ly checking out the place. I left her there after half an hour of accompanying her 'x'

First week went by quite well. No crying, no fuss. Only cried when going to nanny after lunch (almost everyday).That is until she got sick. She got flu suddenly. So I took a day off to take care of her.  After that, everything went downhill. She started to throw tantrums over petty things. Phone rings upsets her, ask her to eat upsets her, change tv channel upsets her, change clothes upsets her, bath time upsets her. Its like my sweet cute girl went to school, got cloned, and what came back to us is a little monster. And did i mention the mood swings? One minute she is jolly, agree to do something, the next 5 secs, she can change her mind, and throw a fit about it. We are at our wits end. What is the matter? What the h**l is wrong? She won't tell, all she does is cry and cry, scratching her head, eyes swollen with all the crying, tears an snot , and saliva all over her face.We can only have our peace when she's asleep.

Experienced friends have told us, its will pass in a few weeks. Its like that. Its normal. Oh really, dear God, please give me the strength and patience to go through this.

I manage to find this article as informational:
http://www.babycenter.com/0_tantrums-why-they-happen-and-what-to-do-about-them_65484.bc

It made me understand more about why it could happen. Has something happened at school?Is she feeling stressful? Have I sent her to school too early? Is she unhappy about the change of routine? It could be because either one of it or ALL. SIGHHH....I will just have to keep observing and monitor and see how it goes from here.

Tomato's progress at 2.5 years old

I am so proud of my girl. She now can button up her own PJ. Even though its taking longer when she does it herself. She has always been interested to do the buttons herself, but we always help her with it. Sometimes I would left one for her to try.  Once, I remember, after her night bath, she insisted on buttoning herself. She ran to a corner on the bed and sat there, and I told Oink let her be. Lets see how long will she try it. For about 30 minutes she sat there, trying and focusing so hard on that one button. After much sweating, she DID IT! You should have seen the look of satisfaction on her face. She was sweating, her bang was wet and sticking on her forehead. But she looked so satisfied, like she has won the olympics. And I was so proud too, just like my kid had won the oylmpics : D. What made me so happy was how she didn't give up. Its not the result that is important, its the process of getting there. And last night, she manage to do 4 buttons (all the buttons on her PJ) BY HERSELF, in 15 minutes!

Another interesting thing happened the other night. She was sitting on her daddy's lap, when she farted. And it smells. She covered her nose, and sat there for a while, seem to be thinking about something. She then suddenly jumped down, waver one hand behind her while turning her head back to her daddy, and say "hmpmpphh!! daddy 放屁!臭臭!" AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! She farted herself and so pandai and accused other people of doing it.

Melbourne after the wedding

Everyone is quite worn out after the wedding. LOL. So we didn't do much the day after. Just hanging around. It was a nice day. We went to the garden for some photo-taking session. Oink's uncle has a very nice garden. Every morning, a few kangaroos would hop in to look for food.  But they are really shy of humans, and would quickly run away when you get near.



Tomato saw me blowing dandelions. So she also wanted to copycat me. But she tried blowing at it with her pacifier on. *facepalm*

Love this shot.

The next day we went to Mount Dandenong. The weather was warm but not too warm. 


Look at the blue blue sky. How I miss the blue sky and the very blue sea of Australia.


Yellow standing out. 
 Someone is very busy pushing around her own stroller. :-s



Where else can you lie down on grass without worrying about dog poop? LOL. Tomato happily rolled around.



Then we had tea at Miss Marples Tearoom. Glorious food. Look at that sundae. YUMSSSS. Tomato only ate the strawberries 'x'
