(2007/01) Jan


haha...i'm lucky to have chanced upon your post, so knew u having twins...i'm also keen to know, u have twins genes on mother's side?? i also envy having twins, but the difficult part is hard on the mother who's carrying the babies. so u'll know their gender in abt a mth's time? so excited for u!

tks for the sms informing of the change in gathering date. can i decide nearer to the date? now jk's right eye has a new eye sty coming up, so not sure whether this time round will drag longer to heal or not... sigh...

Hui.. wish JK a speed recovery..

Mummies near Woodlands..

May I know which childcare or playgroud u sending ur kids to?? I m looking for one now but it seem is a mission impossible for me.. any recommendation??
cashewnut - there is 1 childcare opening @ next block but not sure the name cos they still building e place, think will be ready next yr jan or something.

Kate - do u know e name of the childcare centre?
cashewnut - ur area got a few CC.

Civic center - kinderland
opp ur house 36X plus - got another CC.
Vista point - got MMI and Learning Vision.
at Republic poly - got a Learning vision also.
at 888 plaza - got Champkids

behind vista point, like wat Jen mention, at blk 585 there is a new one opening in March 2010. it is under PAP.. call Sparkletots. now still under renovation.

my girl in Vista Point Learning Vision. I find it not bad.

hopes it helps!
Jen.. thanks, but where is next block?? Where u currently put ur gal to?? I actually shortlisted one playgroup but no vacant & priority given to those afternoon class one where i dun wan to put my son in the afternoon class cos that is exactly his afternoon nap timing..
Kate.. if near my house, i need full day CC.. if near my PIL house at Marsiling, then I can consider playgroup.. My husb has set S$400 on the budget, we intend to send the 2nd one to cc when he turns 18mths.. so he think it is very siong if the fee is too high..

Kinderland at civic center - went there but husb dun like teh teacher there..
PAP opposite civic center - under waiting list, but it is only 2hr school, not very keen..
Vista point, republic poly & 888 plaza - all need transport, over budget..
MMMI at almiralty - yet to go.. but think oso over my husb budget de.. cos need to arrange for transport too..
Cherry House opposite Marsiling MRT - waiting list, but their priority given to their afternoon class student.. (i prefer this school cos quite small in size & number of ppl.. & teacher teach accroding to student's progress) & oso is 3hrs class which fully occupied the whole morning..
lastly.. if no choice.. we will put him PAP opposite Marsiling mrt which is near my PIL house..
cashewnut - like wat kate said is blk 585.
my gal currently @ my mum's place (mini daycare cos there 2 boys - N2, 1.5yrs n belle n Luis (belle's didi) :p ..

my mum will superivise N2 boy homework so belle also learning there. she will buy them books to do 'homework' too.

next yr, belle will be attending appletree (near my mum's)
Jen.. I dun mind to put my son under PAP cos hear good review on the PAP opposite the civic center, but bcos it is only 2 hrs school & is quite inconvenient for my FIL to pick him up everyday, thus we might put him under PAP opposite Marsiling if there is still vacant there..
Got is from other thread.

Does anyone knows where I can get the agar-agar type of cake for birthday? Seen pple's blog
showing Barney design.

first year celebrating for Trisha in SG and didn't know where to get such stuff.

Also is it a must to have goodie bags for kids in sch if she celebrates in sch? Found it such a hassle and didn't really want to give kids sweets which she gets from other kids' birthday. any suggestions on what to put in these goodie bags? Realised it could be quite ex! =p
eh... everynight i just put claudia in her cot with a bottle of milk (after she finish the milk she will just roll abt and fall asleep by herself) then i will tell charlene its bed time then i will take my cane to my study room and play FB, if charlene pop out then i show her the cane she will run back into the room n sleep. =p Last time i have to lie beside charlene before she sleep but now she is able to sleep by herself already, cos she cannot "dong" pass 11pm dun sleep. ussually ard 9 plus i will shoo them all to bed. They ussually sleep from 9 plus till 8am the next day, and yes, Claudia still wakes for midnite feeds... gr..........she wakes up between 12 to 2am n 5 to 6am. ussually i will just throw in 1 bottle of milk into her cot then i will go back to bed and later wakes up to pick up the empty bottle. i am a lazy mummy. kekekekek......

i just celebrated charlene's birthday in school yesterday, and i am 1 of the guilty mummy that gave kids sweets. wakakak... this is wat i put in, pocky, lollipop, wang wang xiao man dou, M & M chocolates, marshmallow, 1 party blower and 1 box of crayons. this cost me $150! for 20 kids.

thanks hui for the contact. =)

Mildy - ermm...the comment that I don't want to give sweets to kids is not to offend anyone...=p I do give sweets to Trisha too once in a while in order to bribe her to eat or do something she doesn't want to...hehehh.

ya lor, so ex to celebrate birthdays for them...sigh.
