long weekend ....

was spent eating,
chilling out with family,
visiting, eating,
chilling out ...
you get the idea rite ...
it was a closed loop ...
over and over ... hee ...

on one of the days ...
had a crop sessh with my SIC ...
this was the outcome of mine ...
definitely rusty !
but happy with the bright colours :)
and finished some left-over rub-ons ... yay !

O-boy at 4.5 yrs - doing what he knows best - being CHEEKY !

hope your Monday blues are ebbing
mine is as I plan for
this Sat's BBQ ...
*finger's crossed* it stays nice and sunny !

thanks for dropping by ...

loves, N

he writes ...

O-boy @ 4 years 2 months
these photos are of him taken last Sunday
hehehe ... we (me & him) call it our un-official Sunday School

this is roughly our Sunday morning itenary -
morning milk
laze in bed a couple more mins
look for the work books
search for his pencil case (yes, he has one filled with pencils, Ikea markers and an eraser)

coaxing O-boy to sit at the dining table takes considerable mins

lessons begin ...
he practices his alphabets
after 15 mins (insert loads of bargaining, whining & some tears - not necessarily from O-boy)
he completes some sheets

he runs off to go watch some PHD - completes a show

tv is switched off
back to the dining table
for more writing lessons

as you can see in the photo i used for the LO above ...
he has a nice pencil grip
his alphabets are coming along as well
he has no problems with upper case letters
lower case is a different story altogether ...
letters like b,d,p,n,u confuses him at times

he loves doing numbers too
loves doing puzzles

lessons alternate between TV and writing
that's the only way teacher-momma can get him
to concentrate ....

ofcourse there's recess time ...
O-boy's menu : peanut butter sandwich, muruku, yogurt, cold water, biscuits.

he also loves writing his name on a little notepad
then tearing out the page and slipping the note to me
like little love notes *heart*

that's Sunday School for us ...
