Tuesday afternoon. While sipping the lemonade, Hui asked " Why does the lemon float in the water and sink to the bottom when there is no more water? " Believe it or not, a simple question like this, made me anxious. I wasn't good in any school subjects at all (blearrgghh) and I routinely fell behind.
It reminded me of this common question "How do you teach your children at home? " that people asked. I dread answering it. I do not teach. I help them learn. I can actually learn some things, I can tell them what I know, and I can help my child learn even when I don't fully understand it myself. It is not a breeze, but it's not impossible.

I love this place. They offer a healthier range of food for me and enhui. The ambience is homely and trendy. Thank you, aunty R for introducing us to Fitfor2. It's located at 3rd floor of Bangsar Village II.
Kids' lunch, macaroni and spahetti with tomato sauce @RM9. Fresh fruit juice @RM5.
We babysat S again ! EnHui shouted 'YAY' excitedly! And me, YES! I missed her a great deal and it was so so great to have her in my arms again. By noon, I was all pooped and thought how could I ever made it to the next half of the day. :) Thanks to En, who helped entertained and took care of little S. And salute to my mom, who has more than 3 children !!!
A gift exchange party - in return I got a new T-shirt ( I need it badly!), En's a pair goggles (the old one is at near-torn state), Hui received a swimming cap and she said 'I don't wear swimming cap, it's too HOT'.... En swept the most creative-present prize, where she made a hat where you could put things on top. LOL.
Tiramisu and Peach Gateaux from "Just heavenly", is really a piece of heaven. I can't wait to try the rest of their cakes.

to concert and followed by Winter Solstice dinner, En was pooped and knocked out the moment she went to bed. She only had two rehearsals with the children from the movement class. The competence of the children didn't bother her at all. En was seen happily dancing, following their steps with no worries.

Squeeze colourful icing all you want and the best thing is, I don't need to clean crazy after that. Ho ho ho.
The teacher from 'Play N Learn' attempted to get the children to follow her but the kids just had a go and did their own way. LOL
My messy cake, Hui announced.
En's deco. She said ' We can't give Hui's messy cake but I wish to eat mine', when I told them to give one to the neighbour. Hui offered hers to the aunty s.h. I wonder what was the reaction of aunty s.h when she opened the box. ! *grin*
