Every year I always look forward to this! I usually get new pens or random stickers.
Just sign up for it online and you don't even need a min spend to renew your membership.
Only thing is the stores are so far away now 😅
Saw @calvinadawn 's Beginners Bible ICanRead purchases and I got really excited! I was all ready to go and purchase more books…until I remembered the zillion books I have in my storeroom 😞
Nevermind I shall just let the youngest reread this lift the flap book. It was a gift for the oldest and really well loved. I recently bought a few more as presents for friends.
We repainted our old house and it looks so much better than our current one hahaha
The room is brighter and bigger than I remember it to be
I learnt my lesson – JUST WHITE. No need apple white or orchid white or whatever
My all grey kitchen suddenly looks sleek without my rubbish 😂
Anyway the painters were Stamford painters and they really did a good job! 5 men who came at 840am and left at 6pm. Price is a bit steep (to me) at 1k+ But I feel like they really put in effort and didn't cut corners. They even painted my shoe rack which was hidden!
Time check: 1039pm
The youngest is still singing the "I don't want to go to school" song to me.
Facebook reminded me that he was fine for 3 days at the previous kindy before reality set in. I can't remember how long he had school phobia for though. All I can remember is him being very enthu about school.
So this too shall pass.
My usual responses are
1. School is fun! You can meet new friends! Like *list names of those I can remember"
👦🏻"I don't like them"
2. I have to pick jiejies up. You wait for me at school once I'm done I'll pick you too.
👦🏻"I want to go with you"
3. If you don't go to school you can't learn how to read like jiejies.
4. If you go to school next time you can get allowance like jiejies.
👦🏻"I don't get money now."
5. If you don't go to school the teachers don't get paid then
they will have no money for food and they will be hungry.
👦🏻"Got other students."
Then the emotional blackmail starts to begin…
"Mummy I want to stay with you." "Mummy i go and pick jiejies up with you." "Mummy I love to stay at home." 🤦🏻♀️
No2 is also not very pro school. She said, "Mummy I don't like school because it makes my head feel funny then at night I can't sleep."
I told her, "It's not school, it's because you don't sleep enough!!"
