Just realised we celebrated RA's birthday 3 times in all. The first was on 28 Nov as a combined celebration with RL at childcare (though there was only 1 cake). Then, on the actual day of her birthday, I brought goody bags down for her classmates during recess because we received quite a few from her classmates. I wanted to reciprocate the gesture to her new classmates.
And then on 24 Jan (Sat), I had a mini birthday playdate with a few of her K2 friends cos she missed them very much.
I guessed this is a transition from K2 to P1 so we end up celebrating with different groups of friends. Oh well, birthday gatherings/playdates is a good way to keep in touch with old friends since most of them are in different primary schools now. :)
She has been asking for a pet for the last 1-2 years. We have been buying time and now that she has turned 7. We finally decided to teach her about responsibility and let her have a pet terrapin as they are quite low maintenance. Ever since she entered Poi Ching, she has been visiting the eco pond, because of the huge terrapin there. And she thinks the terrapin in her school's eco pond is cute.
Did not manage to get one at Petlovers Centre Next as the terrapins' conditions were not good. Finally went to Bedok opposite Bedok library and got her 2 terrapins at $2.50 each. She named hers Sunny as terrapins love sunshine and the other one was named Cherry by Raelynn. Hope she will continue to love her terrapin for many years to come. :)
