It’s been more than two months since the circuit breaker began. For the past over 60 days, we have been staying home for as much as possible, we wear masks when we have to be out, we use sanitisers and wash our hands regularly, we meet up with our family and friends virtually through video conferences, we practise social distancing everywhere we go, we take our temperatures, fill up forms and check in and out of every place we visit,…

和孩子一起认真过好年 – Parents Article

春节是我从小至今最期待的传统节日。农历新年,一家人聚在一起迎禧接福,总让我感到满满的温馨。拥有4000 多年的悠久历史,春节不但是一个值得我们欢庆的节日,也包含了千百年流传下来的文化和习俗。 每当新年即将到来,孩子们总是感到特别兴奋。最近,大宝对我说: “妈妈,新年快到了,我可以跟你拿两个红包吗?” 当时,我感到困惑,为何红包要拿两份呢?我更在意的是孩子到底有没有明白春节的意义。于是,我决定把有关过年的知识和三宝分享,并让他们和我一起准备迎接鼠年的到来。

The year end has always been a busy period for me because of the kids’ birthdays, school holidays, family vacations, hosting parties, BBQs and family gatherings, getting ready for the new school year and so on. Frankly speaking, I haven’t even turned on this laptop much in the past six weeks because I just didn’t have the time or energy and even when I did, I chose to spend them on the kids and cherish the time that we have…

从小做起 – Parents Article

小时候,看到妈妈日夜奔波劳累,不辞辛苦地把我和哥哥抚养长大,我就下定决心将来也要当一名好母亲。我们一家四口住在一间三方式组屋,爸爸天天在外工作,家中没有帮佣,所以大大小小的日常事务完全落在妈妈的肩上。当时的我,才刚上小学一年级就独自上学和回家,在家时会和妈妈一起晾衣服,一起做饭,我甚至还会用菜刀帮妈妈剁肉。我并不觉得那很了不起,但是每当完成任务,心中就有很多满足感。 如今,我有了三宝,尽管世界不断地在改变,始终不变的是我的育儿理念。三宝打从幼小开始,就得帮忙承担家务,为家里尽一点力。每天,他们都会做一些适当的家务,事情的难度也随着他们的年龄提高。譬如说,三岁的小宝折衣服、六岁的二宝拖地、九岁的大宝炒菜等。曾经有朋友取笑说:“ 你把孩子当童工吗?”… This is only a snippet of a Parents Article written by ~Summer~ Read Full Parenting Article

我还是我 – Parents Article

我还是我 成为一名母亲,是我人生的转捩点。 自从大宝呱呱落地的那一刻起,我的生活起了翻天覆地的变化。以前的我,随心所欲,能够拥有充分的睡眠,享受用餐时间和做自己爱做的事。现在的我,全年无休,一天24小时几乎不间断地工作,无论做什么事都把孩子放在第一位。 能够成为妈妈,是一件无比幸福的事,也难怪我们把孩子捧在手心当成宝。就因为我们想要竭尽所能给宝贝最好的,往往也不惜牺牲自己。身为一名全职妈妈,丈夫又常常在外头公干,我已习惯独自照顾我们家里的三宝。我不仅是妈妈,也是我们家的厨师、保姆、护士、秘书、司机、家教等。如果说,我的每一天都为了三宝的起居饮食而不停地奔波忙碌,有时甚至连喘一口气的时间或上洗手间的自由都没有,那可是千真万确的。 好友曾对我说:… This is only a snippet of a Parents Article written by ~Summer~ Read Full Parenting Article

It’s been almost a decade since I stepped into the motherhood journey. Yup, 10 years. I can’t say it’s short because, well, how many 10-years can we have in our life? Yet, it also doesn’t feel that long to me because in more ways than one, I feel like I’ve just started out and have so, so much more to learn. It’s true, I am still a newbie mum in so many ways, despite having three kids under my care…

让梨 – Parents Article

我的家中育有两女一男,大宝和二宝都是姐姐,分别9岁和6岁,小宝则是3岁的弟弟。这三姐弟虽然大多时候能和睦共处,但是也必然会有意见分歧、争吵打闹的时候。不管是为了抢玩具、争先后、博取宠爱等,他们的争吵起哄已成了我的家常便饭。  有一次,我们到外婆家去拜年的时候,大宝和小宝为了争夺玩具而开始吵了起来。当时,我的外婆就对大宝说了一句,“你是姐姐,你要让弟弟。”… This is only a snippet of a Parents Article written by ~Summer~ Read Full Parenting Article

As much as I love April since it is the month I was born and wedded in, I have to say that this past month has been a trying one for me. It was one that saw me in tears, saw me frustrated, saw me lose my cool, saw me blow my top, saw me become someone I didn’t want to be and saw me at my worst. I can blame many things for all of this you know, let’s…

It’s funny, didn’t I just write a post on turning thirty five and yet in the blink of an eye, another year has passed? It kind of scares me to think about how fast time passes and makes me wonder if I’m doing my best to make good use of each day that I have. Does losing my cool, raising my voice and getting into heated arguments with the kids mean that I’m wasting and not making use of my…
