weekending

HQ: 4 years 2 months old; QQ: 2 years old

With H1N1 looming in the city, we secluded ourselves in the security of our own home. Activities throughout the weekends involved:

Lining up a combination of velociraptor lookalikes, while the triceratop did its inspection. Two rows of dinosaurs, headed by the papa velociraptor and papa triceratop respectively, were making their ways to “a place where the ice isn’t melting yet” (my guess is that Ice Age 2 had its influence here). Well, obviously there’s a clash in time zone (ice age and dinosaurs), but do indulge the kid a bit, will you? :-) Waking up from an afternoon nap and was surprised by a treat of red bean piggy buns from papa (takeaway from Dragon i). Creating cubes… QQ is getting better and better. Setting up an old favorite Tomy train tracks and see the tiny trains whooshing on their tracks… HQ was trying to impress his little meimei here, and I think he succeeded. In our room that night, HQ asked for biscuits for supper (dear Teacher Usha, here’s your student demonstrating the word that you taught him in pre-kindy). I laid out a large piece of mahjong paper (my drafting paper for sewing) and asked the kids to sit on it while eating, to catch the crumbs. After which, HQ asked for a pen and started doodling away. Later, he asked me to label them… there was a goldfish, swordfish, piranha, shark, and a variety of huge mountain river fishes. The baby princess wanted her teeth to be brushed by her koko, and HQ was more than happy to oblige (for safety sake, we gave him a finger-brush instead). We always have boiled water for QQ to gargle, as sometimes she drinks instead of spitting out!

It was a fun and wonderful weekend altogether :-)

ahhh..yes...i'm also avoiding crowded places :( hey, is the piggy bun good? so cute. the kids must be so happy to see the buns.

According to the waitress, these buns were only made when ordered. The kids love the filling more than the dough.

Mum tried to replicate them and her piggies turned out very flat... kudos to her for trying though :-)

Hahaha... HQ likes everyhing lined up nicely and don't allow us to mess with his things... sometimes can be pretty annoying also.
