I was in the band too! I had to choose to play the clarinet because I was too skinny to hold a baritone, and my lips were too thick to play the flute :)

- The Day when I bit into chocolate directly out of the freezer and lost a tooth
DD had her tooth drop out this hols - it was shaking for a while - are you sure you are not my DD? :scratchhead:

- How I got chased by a dog that I was trying to befriend
- ...etc.

No mummy, it's not me. I'm really ChiefKiasu in disguise.

Of course we also keep our routine workbook practises so as not to slack but overall he had a good break I said...with a good healthy tan (^.^)


You could have brought along the workbook during the fishing trip...make full use of the waiting time :laugh:

I rather they go back to sch to do some learning.

As for homework, a bit is ok.. excessive homework with no one to guide is better w/o.

read in today's ST forum about parents having different ideas about homework.
http://www.straitstimes.com/premium/for ... s-20130404.
i will not write letters to allow my kids to skip school, however i feel that kids should enjoy their hard-earned school holiday...even if not the entire period, at least 3-4 days for March/Sep, 2 weeks for June for example.

but one point he mentioned 'the teachers in school are more than qualified to help their children' is something i do not quite agree with...they are qualified teachers, but not all are responsible...this is the reason why we need tutors...bcos there is a proper system in place with a tutor.
