Thanks. Actually was planning for bigger gap, cos they are actually abt 22 mths apart. Think 30 mths gap will be better. But now that they can play together and entertain each other, I'm quite glad that they are quite close in age.

I stay in Tiong Bahru...considered west?

We were planning to have only 1..
Ermmm... at least until we decided
it was time and we're more ready
and more experienced to have 1
more thereafter..

Well, DD2 decided for herself bah..
Naah, come to think of it... :idea:
I think actually hubs made a bad
call that fateful night.. thanks to
horrid cashier aunties who put us
off buying protection. :P

Wuahahahaha! :rotflmao:

Oit?! Thought i saw you resided
over at Bt Merah? Uhmm.. :idea:
Tiong Bahru shud be central i guess.. :|

Yah, fated i suppose.. :D

Glad to be acquainted with
another fan. Hahakh! :lol:
I'm coming up with a new
thread > Montessori Phonics.

So, i guess i'll see you there. :wink:

I am a sucker for value-for-money
stuff, especially since i had to be a
stay home parent many years ago.
Less financial resources.. Ahakz! :lol:

I also hope to encourage stay home
parents to stay-active and not to
mention... to stay sane, with easy
to make DIY stuff to give children
the headstart prior to official
pre-schooling.

There are a million things one can do
with children in the comfort of home!

Cheerios.
:celebrate:

What a coincidence..I've just been browsing your new thread :lol:

Agree that it's great to get things that are value-for-mony, even for a working mother. It's just that I have less time to browse and dig for the good stuff.

Must say that i'm quite lazy though, not really spending that much time teaching them. Weekends we usually try to bring them out for some fresh air. Just went to West Coast Park on Sat. The playgorund is fantastic (for tiring the kids out) haha

Actually, it's a GREAT opportunity
for working mothers to get some
exercise! Playing with our kids @
the playground burns fat. Do that
often enough, then you will get da
stick-thin stewardess look very sn.

I'm trying to burn off my carbs as
well. Being on KSP very long hours
doesn't help with calorie burning,
sadly.. Kekekee.. :lol:

You know what? My 4-year old son only wants to be carried around the playground, as he does not want to get sand in his sandals. Same goes for my 2-year old gal. It's free weights training.

Must say the kids really enjoyed it tho. They asked to go again the next day.

I ran back and forth the swing-rope
line with the kids hanging on to the
tyres; at West Coast Park the last
time we were there, while hubs went
for his jogging rounds..

I was dead tired boy!

Sweat like hell!
But best part after that, the kiddies
were super happy and we wound
down with nice lunch at Ayer Rajah
food centre. Yum! I slurped on sugar
cane juice with lotsa ice! The park is
fantastic really.. and clean.
