Our sea horse pool was ruined the other day because of a couple of lizards… They poked holes into our pool with their claws and I had no idea. Until this morning. So while Josh was at kindergarten, Andrea and I went to Toys R Us and bout this pool for $13 SGD.
Josh said he likes this one better than the other one. I guess the roof on the other one was uncomfortable for him.
Lately, the kids have been totally hooked on this DUTCH LADY chocolate milk. It’s individually packed so they drink it up like it’s a small piece of candy or something. They finished 8 packs in 2 days.
Josh and Andrea love it more because of the Disney’s Frozen characters that are on it. I guess the packaging really does matter to kids.
Josh has been in this “I’m not going to eat proper food but just junk food” kind of state for the past few days. I was finally able to crack him out of it with some rib eye steak today. But as you can see in this picture. He’s eating fruit loops and half an apple.
I decided to take out my Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 to film the kids while we are in Singapore. Now that we’re only going to be here for a few more months. I thought it’d be nice to film them playing and just keep a few video files so that we can take a trip down memory lane when ever we want to.
Yesterday while shopping with dad, the kids wanted to play at a playground. This whole “I want to play at the playground” ordeal started when we went into Paragon Shopping Centre. Josh now knows that there is a small play area in that particular shopping mall so every time we walk into it he says “and what about the playground?”.
So Kaden and I promised him that we would go to the playground today instead of the indoor play area yesterday. It was a really hot day but promises are made to keep right? We headed out around 9:45am and came home around 11:50am.
Today, Josh’s kindergarten had a National Day Celebration event at the school. We were to bring finger foods to the school to share so I made Pretzel covered chicken fingers that ”Giada at Home” made on the FoodNetwork.
I had to wake up super early to make this but it was well worth it. Everyone seemed to enjoy it!
Although waking up at 6am and making this was soooo tiring, it was good to see everyone enjoy what I cooked.
After getting the chicken fingers prepared and packed, I had to get ready and then get the kids ready.
Andrea was super excited that she was going to kindergarten too. She wanted to wear her backpack and go with Josh.
And because she was going too (with her backpack) she walked all the way there too, just like her OPPA.
When we got to the kindergarten, people were already seated and the kids were going to their classrooms to put their bags away. We got there a bit late so I had to take Josh straight to his classroom.
Our mornings are pretty busy. I wake up at 6:30am to pack Kaden’s lunch. The kids get up around then most of the time too. Today was no different than any other day. We all got up. Kaden went to work. The kids and I had breakfast. Then Josh went to kindergarten. Andrea and I came home. I cleaned the house (I can usually clean and do the laundry within half an hour). Andrea and I played with some crayons and drew pictures (more like doodles). Then we took a shower. I cleaned the blankets (with our Dyson) and sheets, then placed them back onto the mattresses.
Cleaned the living room playmat and ALL of the little bunny rabbits that we have.. I think we have about 5? 6?
Hydrogen Peroxide is usually used in the house to disinfect a cut or a wound. Most people have it in their first aid kits or in the medicine cabinet. However, did you know that you can use this clear magic water in different ways in the house. Here just a few!
Whiten your whites more with hydrogen peroxide in your laundry. Put your white laundry in water. Especially the ones that have turned a bit yellow. Soak it with about 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide for half an hour, then run it through the washing machine for a really WHITE wash!
Clean your refrigerator and oven! Spray hydrogen peroxide in your fridge or oven, leave for about 6-7 minutes and then wipe with a clean cloth to get rid of the food stains. Its also great to clean your counter tops with too!
Clean your bathroom! Spray hydrogen peroxide on your tub or shower booth and leave for 25-30 minutes before scrubbing the tub and shower booth! Rinse with warm water for a cleaner and shinny finish!
Whiten your nails. Soak your finger nails and toenails in hydrogen peroxide to naturally whiten them. Soak for about 15-20 minutes every night to get whiter nails! You can also whiten your teeth by mixing hydrogen peroxide with baking soda and using it every night as your tooth paste!
Prevent Acne from getting worse or prevent it at all! Wipe your face with hydrogen peroxide every night after washing your face and before putting on your basic skin care line to prevent acne. It will make your skin calm down as well from being the sun!
