RaeAnne is 8!!!

We had a celebration for RaeAnne with a few of her classmates last Sunday. Our house is too small to have a big party so we only invited kids and mummies from our 2C closed WhatsApp group. It was a cosy get together for the mummies as well as we have been chatting for more than 1 year since we attended the P1 Orientation together.

RaeAnne had fun with Valerie (her no. 1 BFF), Jiaxin, Wanyee and Gerrard. THe house was so noisy with just 6 kids that I half expected the neighbours to come knocking on our door to complain. Lol.

Today is her actual birthday. They are not allowed to bring goodie bags to distribute to classmates anymore but I did tell her to distribute some of the Aji no san waffle snacks to her classmates during recess. I woke up at 5 am with a terrible tummyache, bad stomach spasms so I went to the doctor and got MC. Rested at home until 3+pm as I promised to bring her to Toys r us to buy a toy.

We were supposed to have Swensons but RA changed her mind. She said she doesn't want Swensons anymore since Mummy cannot eat ice cream. We ended up at Din Tai Fung. Just a simple meal of mushroom noodles before she went for her usual Art class. I went home to rest as simply could not take it anymore.

At bedtime, we sang a birthday song for her again. Daddy sang in Mandarin, I sang in English while RL sang in Korean. It was a funny sight and RA laughed. I told her my wishes for her is to be kind, wise and healthy. I forgot my most important wish. And that is she will be happy. Love you darling!!! Whether you are a smiley baby with cute dimples or an eight year old fast maturing primary school kid. :)

Raelynn's first day of Primary School

Mei Mei has finally started Primary school. It was good that we had a 3.5 days long weekend over New Year to relax before both kids start school. Yesterday, both she and I can't sleep. For me, because of the cappucino in the afternoon. She had many mosquito bites suddenly so it was itchy for her. She's probably excited about school too. Anyway, all of us woke up today sleepily. Got to school exactly at 730am. Good thing of staying near the school.

I was worried about Raelynn cos her best friend from cc didn't get into Poi Ching School. They would have been in the same class because they were both Dec babies. But her parents didn't dare to ballot so she went to Temasek Pri instead. Turns out there were 4 other cc classmates in her class. At least she will have many familiar faces. Haha.

This year, parents are allowed into the school for 2 days. But day 1, we can only observe the kids from the sides at the canteen. Everything went quite smoothly except poor gal was feeling the effects of the all the mosquito bites (even a big one on her face) and can't stop scratching. During recess, a gal from her class went to sit at the wrong table and took RL's waterbottle, slinged it around her neck and started drinking. RL didn't even realise her water bottle was missing. I had to tell the little girl gently that she took the wrong water bottle and washed it for RL before giving it back to her. Haha.

Tomorrow we will be allowed to meet their form teachers and go into their classrooms so hope it will be more exciting day for me. Hb and I almost fell asleep today after hearing so many talks from 730am to 1215pm. Haha.
