Giveaways 3rd – 9th Aug 2016

Posted on by 0 comment

Everyone loves a good giveaway, right? And what more, when they are from the various parent bloggers that I have gotten to know in a blogging community! They have put in the hardwork to review and now let’s hop over to the blogs that are running giveaways so that you can stand a chance to win at something!

But first! We’ve got a giveaway of our own too! Tickets to a seminars on brain development in kids below 5 years, and between 5 – 12 years of age.

Obviously, having 2 kids below 5 meant that I was interested in the former seminar. More details can be found here.

This seminar covers 2 topics:

The Brain & Language: Prepare your child’s brain to love languages by Dr. Steve Miller

I’m..an arts person (yes, it means I totally detest maths and science). Languages fascinate me and so I try to make sure that my kids get exposed to various languages. We speak English at home, but can also speak dialects like Hokkien & Cantonese, and a smattering of Malay, thanks to my paternal grandma who’s a Nonya. We definitely want to retain some roots to our ethnic group so we are hoping the kids will pick the dialects up! Sad to say, not a lot of people can speak their dialect, so this seminar will definitely provide some tips as how your child absorbs languages in their early stages in life!

The Brain & Movement: Build the body, boost the brain by Ms. Cheryl Chia

Who would have thought that exercising can help boost the brain function! I’ve seen parents doing various sensory activities with their kids and have always wondered about their effectiveness. I mean, sure, fine motor skills are important as kids develop to learn how to write, some other activities may also help in concentration and focus. But to what extent leh? This would also be a major eye-opener for us!

For parents with kids above 5 years of age..don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten you! For more details about the seminar, you can check it out here

This would probably be especially useful if you have kids who are heading to primary school soon! The class is a whole new playing field and this would definitely come in handy as you prepare yourselves and your kids for the new phase in their educational life.

[Giveaway] Belly Happy Moments Seminar

Posted on by 2 comments

3rd kid. 27 weeks pregnant. And it’s taking the wind outta me. *huffpuff* You would think it would get easier with the nth number of kid but nooooo. 累死我了。We haven’t prepped much yet (no clothes for Sarah! oh nooooes), we’re sorta just waiting haha. Super fail right.

The only thing that got me currently on the edge is how this labour would happen.  For Ollie, it was planned cos he was overdue. That was easy, we knew the date and time to be at the hospital, and he was born within the day. Tadaah. For QT, I went into labour unexpectedly at 34 weeks, and got stuck on my back for 2 days before I could deliver him. Waah..that is ONE delivery I wouldn’t want to go through AGAIN. FML. Let me go past 36 weeks, I happy liao. Please hor pleaaaase.

But hey, having a 3rd kid doesn’t mean I’m more experienced at it. I mean, I sorta know what to expect but shit can always happen. Like getting a low lying placenta again. And wondering why this girl is constantly sitting low at 27 weeks! So I got my support belt on and hope that it would help. But does it…? I dunno. No better time like now to find out I guess!

If you’re like me..still wondering, why not come check out the Belly Happy Moments seminar run by SmartParents?
