Spending Time With The J Brothers

November 30, 2009
Long holidays means more time with the kids,
At the same time more tired , more fun, more busy ,
more laughter, more yelling, more crying, more scolding, more playtime….
As a mother, sometime i wish my kids grow faster ,

Toddler age like Jeremy can be very handful and difficult to take care .
You need lots of patience and love … otherwise …. he will drive you up the wall.
On the other hand, if they grow older faster .
I will surly miss the baby stage like kissing them, cuddle them,
playing with them, hugging them … etc etc ….

As for baby J , i wish … forever he is as cute as this age,
Don’t grow so fast, this phase of baby is really too cute.

Instead of staying at home .
Hubby brought us to Shopping Mall and also back to my Granny House.
At first i was worried …
We hardly bring The J Brothers out to shopping mall all by ourselves .
Not sure can handle or not … how if one is crying, 2nd one is behave naughty??
But yesterday outing was not that bad as i thot,
Perhaps turn out to be very happy for nearly 5 hour.
“phew” …
One on the stroller, one on the baby carrier .
Now can consider to bring them out more often “wink”
I got this dino hat from KiKo WHS, it’s cost only RM5.
But i only able to get one, is actually for baby J.
But surly the big kor kor also wanna to wear,
So both have to take turn to wear .
I believe in future, what ever we buy, we must get TWO.
One for the big and one for the small.

Apart from that, i also prepared some art and craft for Jeremy,
Just to keep him busy and gave him something new to learn.
The art and craft for the week was : Apple Three
Learn to use scissor and glu .
Here’s the Apple Three & Orange Tree.
As for the blue colour tree, he claim as Grape Tree .
Another simple cook over the weekend
Vege fried rice with dry meat.
Last , hope you all have a great holidays ahead.
December is a great month to enjoy and celebrate !!
We had School Holiday, we had Christmas, we had New Year.
Lots of shopping ….. yah ….
Hope everyone had a great month.


A Matter of Taste : Fast , Easy & Lazy Bento

November 25, 2009
I try to made and decorate my breakfast/lunch bento ,
But i realize i just don’t have the skill to do it, how come ??!!
Guess what, i have quite alot of bento gear ,
I search some online bento website, ask some mummies ….
But still dunno where and how to start it !!
When come to time – consuming, I give up!!
I choose a fast and easy bento made ….. O.o
Maybe i should start my bento during Weekends ,
Slowly made, slowly deco, practice …. just for the lil one at home.

Breakfast of the week : Tuna+ham+Cheese+Vege

Btw, these bento is for adult , for me and my hubby.
Perhaps a lil “silly” note is good enough … hahhaha ^@^

Sparking Good Time

November 23, 2009
Last Saturday the kiddy was having Children Day & also Birthday Party
for those kids who celebrate Birthday on the Oct, Nov and Dec.
So Jeremy got the chance to celebrate his birthday again .
More then 10 kids was having Birthday … means more then 10 cakes too !!
They were having lots of fun and lots of games, gift and junk food.
Glad that his having his birthday celebrated by the kiddy this round,
Other wise he be upset for not having a Cake … hahahah ( i know him well)
Due to my busy schedule i have no time to bake a cake,
So i ordered a cartoon cake and i put lots of colourful candy
on top of the cake
….. it’s turn out very colourful and nice !!!

& i know i got to made something for him to
take to kiddy
and give to his classmate …. only 12 kids.
So instead of preparing goodies bags or party bags,
I choose to made Butterflies Lollipop.

( printable layout for the Butterflies Lollipop)
So cute and yet so easy to made !!
Which kids doesn’t like Lollipop ??

Well … i drop by the kiddy for a while, chat with the class teacher ,
According to teacher , Jeremy is doing well. Teacher said :
“He is new to the kiddy, still small boy and ask me don’t take things so serious ^O^ “.
On and off he did misbehavior in the class, fight with the kids sometime,
I guess most kids did, especially for boy… so …is fine.
Perhaps , they are training him to be patient,
“wait for his turn” , be polite & sharing.
Keep my finger cross for more good news from him.
Instead of telling me things like : Teacher scold, frens hit/bite …. ^O^.
boy ar boy ^O^ ^()^ .. please be good boy !!

*O* ^O^

Update on The J Brothers & Mummy ( November 2009)

November 12, 2009

Update on The J Brothers ( November 2009)

This is a long post.

Baby J was 3 months old on the 8th &

Lil J was 37 months old this coming 17th,

Perhaps mummy is getting 1 year older today …

ya.. mummy Birthday today (13 Nov) .

Baby J aka Jareth @ 3 months old milestone :

He weights about 8kg , I haven actually gone into clinic for next check-up.. .

The last weight measure was 7kg nearly 3 weeks ago..

Now he is getting heavier !! Love it too bite …

Drink 5 oz milk , can up to 6oz for BM…

Still top up with formula milk .

Taking Novalac IT which introduce by doctor due

to bowel movement was not /and still not in very good condition .

He sleeping time getting better during night time …

From every hour awake to 2 hour, to 3 hour and can up to 4 hour.

He can turn his head and lift his head very well ,

He been smile a lot ….can make eye contact with people around him ,

If u talk to him and call his name, he will immediately goo and gaa with smile,

laugh and sparkle his eye….

He is just so cute to cuddle and play with at this baby phase.

He love sucking on his hand … bashing himself on the chin and face until full of saliva.

I m so glad he is not that type of baby which is fragile, small, petite and helpless …

He is strong enough to handle his kor kor roughness …

otherwise ….mummy cant imagine .

Everyone love him to bite … as I said, he is really cute at this stage !!

Lil J aka Jeremy @ 37 months old milestone

He love learning .Sending him to kiddy is a good choice for lil boy like him,

He is full of curiosity and question , love learning new things and very busybody .

Of cos there is good and bad time in kiddy for him and for mummy.

As I said in my earlier post, mummy just have to learn to let go

& let him learn to be independent .

I know he can, he is strong enough to handle it without mummy.

Even mummy been sad over some incident in kiddy which

make him helpless and embarrassment, is ok …

Sooner or later he will blossomed into a smart, sociable,

Confident little boy .

I know that .

After baby J had become our family member,

I cant deny that Jeremy is getting more difficult to handle ,

He is loosing temper very easy and wanna to gain our attention.

He’s still going through a “Terrible Stage” where he’s constantly naughty

and pushing our boundaries …It’s been hard work!

He can speck well and communicate well with us .

In the progress of learning to speck in English, improving after 1 week of school.

Quite a independent boy … especially going kiddy without mummy worry,

No cry .. just a bit misbehavior in kiddy, can eat, can go toilet ,

Can wash hand, can brush teeth, can wear pants, shoes…

Can do a lot of thing by himself .

Perhaps he is very helpful when u need help …

This boy of mine is easily fall in love with other people that treat him good..

example … his teacher, his jie jie, ku ku and etc etc ….

Then he start to look for them …

and claim that was HIS teacher, HIS jie jie ….

( 我 姐姐, 姑姑 我的 teacher ….)

He love putting cream on his face and body,

Mummy have to give him a Body Shop Vitamin E moisture cream

for him to put on his face

Tell you, he is good on this. 2 drops on the 2 cheek and 1 on forehead .

& rub it evenly like a pro … hahhaha …

Later follow by mummy foundation …

ahhh …. I have a daughter too …but don’t get me wrong,

He is still a very manly lil active boy …

Life will never be dull with him ….

Last .. Happy Birthday to me !!

No celebration (i guess).. just another day for me .

But i got a sweet and funny surprise early this morning …

Sweet … cos i got a surprise Birthday Gift from Hubby..

Funny … cos he is the one who hide the gift under my pillow last night..

and also he is the one who shown me the gift this morning…

cos mummy was very blur and didn’t realize there’s a gift under the pillow ..

I even told him .. Should put ON TOP on Baby J , then only i can see mah ..

wakakakakka ….

Guess what ???

People used to say … the smallest the gift .. the more valuable.

My darling husband, who knows me too well..

and know what i love the best .. a pair of diamond earring.

Very true … Love it very much …

Not forget those who wish me on my Facebook, sms, call , e-cards … tqtq…. You make my day !!

BTW… i reward myself a gift too – jeans skirts from espirit .

Have a great weekend ahead for you and for me as well .

A new header for a happy day.

Perhaps … they are my Best Birthday Gift .

Wordless Monday : Falls in LOVE

November 9, 2009
3 months baby J with mummy .
I really love to cuddle Baby J & enjoying this baby phase !!
Who doesn’t like ??
He is super cute !!

I just have to learn to let go !!

November 4, 2009
Again, some update for Jeremy into Full Day Program in kiddy !!
So far so good , He is adapting well .

Now every morning daddy send him to kiddy and mummy send Baby J to nanny.
But for the first day (Monday) ..
We all ( daddy, mummy and baby J) send lil J to kiddy.

He was so happy and excited !!

I called up the kiddy today and ask about my Boy .
The teacher said : “Your boy ar …His very Independent lor !! Shouldn’t be worry.

Here’s are some of the things happened to lil J this few days …

After get know to the class teacher and his friends,
he started to act his own way .

Teacher said, he like to act like a dinosaur and yell in the class .. O.o ( oh dear)
So teacher have to warn him and explained to him, so far he is listening ..
But somehow i think teacher have to warn for few time !!
He been crying … yes.. he do cried for this 3 days.
But just a while only after being explained…… example :

He cried when he saw many of his friends go home ,
for those who not in full day !! & why can’t he go home ??

He cried when there’s changed of teacher ,
Cos full day and half day teacher was different !!

He is quite attached to his class teacher , he feel save with her.
Once there’s change of teacher . He feel insecure.

He cried a lil when the teacher scold and warn him when he misbehavior,
I think he get scared !!

He also get angry when have to wait for his turn , very impatient .

Was his first day on Full Day program .
As a mum, i thot it could be nice if i fetch him back and
see what teacher wanna to tell me about him.
I m very sure he be very very happy to see mummy .
So i tried my best to leave office sharp and reach him ASAP.
But too bad, it was raining and kinda traffic jam.
So i reach the kiddy about 6:10pm.
I saw Jeremy carried his school bag and waited me inside the kiddy lobby.
But worst, he is the LAST student with the LAST teacher.
I feel badly and sad that moment .
The moment he saw me, he was very happy and want me to carry.
Keep on calling “mummy mummy mummy”
Of cos i carried and give him a big hug.
He must be missing and longing for mummy !!
My tear just flow down the moment we step into the car and leave the kiddy..
I feel really bad and let him be the last person to leave the kiddy ,
Some more is raining and cold. .. and his first day in full day program..
Poor boy …
ha … i think i m too emo here……

After this incident , i had arranged my PIL to fetch him from kiddy,
I think is better this way …
At least they reach and fetch him before 5:30pm
At least he is not the last person to leave !!

I know he loved his kiddy, so far no struggling to wake him up,
drink milk and change, he been very cooperating .
He look forward to go to kiddy in the morning !!
Honestly, i’m glad he is adapting well and he like his kiddy so far …
Perhaps this is his new phase of life !!

But deep down in me ,
i do feel terrified of all the negative new experiences and
influences he’ll face without me…. all for the first time !!
Dealing with many rules ,
friendship, disappointments, loneliness, rejection,
embarrassment, bullying, fighting …. and many more.
Cos i know he is not a very easy boy !!
For me, he is and he like
Tantrums, screaming, shouting and refusing,
stubbornness and disobedience, and then purposely being naughty,
difficult and aggressive just for attention.
Hopefully all this didn’t apply so badly during kiddy !!!
Cos his naughtiness sometime can be annoying !!

I guess other than that…
I just have to learn to let go , have a bit of faith ,
Life is full of things to learn and experience even for a lil boy.
Have faith that he can adapt to new situations,
Have faith that he will learn from his mistake,
and that i just have to loosen up a bit ….

I remembered the principle said to me when i had a
conversation with him earlier last week .
” Is not the kids cannot let go the parents, The parents cannot let go the kids”
So true … that’s is what i m into now.

Daddy said to me yesterday …
Not to worry, Why are you so worry ???
Teacher will handle and guide him the right way !!
Yah … daddy seem no worry at all …
I Wander why mummy always have endless of worried … ??
Now only go kindy wor … how if go primary, secondary , uni??
Endless … endless ….

Okey … i really need to learn to let go ,
to have the wisdom knowing how to let go .

Knowing when to push and when to stand back,
When to hold them back or keep them wrapped up !!
Maybe i shouldn’t be so protective or being a pushing mum …

Accept the negative part when he have to face it himself .
Shouldn’t under-estimate him ….
Maybe he is stronger that i think lei ?? hmmmm … mmm

Mummies out there,
Do u feel and have the same feeling as me ?

Quick Meals .

November 3, 2009
Like you,
I want to spend my time and energy enjoying my boys,
Not working in the kitchen.
I always choose dishes that are easy to make & quick to prepare.
Don’t take fancy equipment or special skills.
Then get out of the kitchen and have fun with the family or rest !!

Below was my easy and quick meal over the weekend.
Do share with me your quick meals too.

Steamed Banana + Raisin Cake with PANCAKE MIX.
This recipe is very easy and fast to prepare.
250gm Pancake mix, 1/4 cup butter, 1 egg, 120ml plain water,
3 small banana and some raisin or 1 tsp sugar.
Steam for 10 minute or till done.
It’s turn out like “huat kuay” … moist and just nice to eat while is hot.

Something my boy love – Fishball .

Usually fishball noodle soup is a favourite for the little ones.
That why papa go market and bough some BIG fishballs
for mummy to cook a simple noodle soup.
