A Lolli Box for Xmas

It came in the mail on Wednesday. It was actually sent directly to Mr H’s office since my friend knew that there was no one home to receive the parcel.

It was a box of crafts for Z to make a musical snowman. It sounded pretty cool.

Hope to produce the actual output soon!

The above was taken at marina square.

No thanks to a rainy Wednesday, we ended up having dinner at Waraku @ Central where Z was mesmerized by the view of pouring rain on the river.

The dinner ended off with a sweet note when the restaurant staff gave Z a free toy.

Christmas parties week

Though Christmas was a good 2-3 weeks’ away, Z and X had attended 3 Christmas parties to date.

One on the 7th at our estate, one on the 12th at Z’s school and one on the 13th at X’s school.

Both kids had their fair share of presents. Z even received extra presents from his friends, on top of the one for exchange. It made us feel really bad that I did not prepare!

The kids had begun opening the presents since X had rendered it dangerous to put up a Christmas tree with his constant chewing and putting-everything-in-his-mouth habit.

Loved how X peered at his present with interest

X’s first shoe

As the second child, he was supposed to wear his brother’s hand me downs but he really defied all second child theory. He had his fair share of indulgence and still got to be spoilt silly by everyone around him.

His lovely infantcare teachers also did up a personalized calendar to go along with his Christmas goodie bag.

What a jolly season for the children and us! Earlier, whilst enroute to Great World City for dinner, Z asked to visit the huge Christmas tree at Ion. This boy had been so cute. His recent favorite liner was,”People are celebrating Christmas because they don’t know me.”

It took me a very long while to figure out what Mr H thought. What it meant was – for people who knew Z, they would celebrate his birthday with him. For people who did not know Z, they would celebrate Christmas. Well, it made sense though the sentence came out rather odd!

Christmas shopping

With 20 days more to Christmas, I had only been busy with preparing and collecting RSVPs for Z’s party.

I had had guests asking what Z would like.

It then struck me that I had not prepared a single gift for Z or X this year. Last year, Z had been overwhelmed with Lightning McQueen apparels and merchandise. What I overlooked was that he would receive more toys on Xmas day, so till now, he had not finished opening his birthday presents from his last birthday,

Hence, it would not make sense for me to buy him toys.

Clothes? Nay…. Way too much clothes too, because I had been buying so consistently.

The same situation for X too. There were too many toys from Z’s time and from X’s full month. As their mom (who knew how much of everything they had since I also had been buying consistently), I was at a loss on what to buy.

Maybe I should just buy both of them an iPad air each.

Just kidding.
