Mummy Eliz’s little darling just wishes to turn back into an infant and the reason is to justify him breastfeeding for extended hours. He’s still very much attached his Mummy Eliz’s milk-making machines.

It’s the once a year gift exchange, and this year, it’s at Elita’s humble abode. With a total of 6 kids, it’s more of a balloon-playing, playground-playing, classic-resversi-game-playing, old-maid-playing bonding time.
When it’s was just the adults, it’s was night out at East Coast Park till dawn, and then proceeding to the Old Marina area for bowling etc. If Mummy Eliz is not wrong, this should be the 16th year this group of friends is spending Christmas together.
Of course, there are new additions of friends and leaving of old friends, but the core group stays more or less the same. While not practically exciting [which is expected, as we cannot possibly chill out at pubs out with the kids right?], this group has a calm, familiar feel to it.
And if we can last 16 years, Mummy Eliz is sure we can go a long way, which is such a comforting thought in the world of constant changes.

Oh, the fairy-tale with a beautiful ending that totally captured Princess Chelsea’s heart, her whole soul was absorbed into the movie while it played, on the cinema screens of Cathay Cineplex at AMK Hub.
Mummy Eliz’s version is, “Rapunzel Rapunzal, Let Down Your Hair and I’ll cut it with a vengeance!”
Does Mummy Eliz have any issues with Rapunzel’s hair? Well, of course not, but she’s really sick of hair tying, and yet she can’t bear to cut off Princess Chelsea’s hair, so she’s got to vent her frustration on Rapunzel’s hair, and of course, that’s only possible in her dreams!
3 times a day, over 1000 times a year, Princess Chelsea’s been having long hair for over 4 years, so that’s is more than 4000 times, and to add in the shampooing, conditioning etc, argh!!!!

Well, more than often, a best Christmas gifts might be just time to engage in free-play, instead of showering the little ones with toys.
Read on to find out why, in a article shared by Ms Carol, an educator online.
Another trip with Uncle Joseph, Daddy Tiong once again, had the honour of escorting Princess Chelsea on the trip.
She came back happy, recounting a practical experience of artificially inseminating the orchid plants using pollen on cotton buds, and from the pictures, one could tell Uncle Joseph managed to make the text-books lessons come alive.
A mummy who also joined the outing commented that thought they stayed on by their own for a while after Uncle Joseph left, the place did not seem as exciting as when he was around.

Well, FACEBOOK can't take the blame entirely, but it's always a case of, there are some issues that needed ironing out between the married couples, but as avoidance is often less messy than confrontation, one seeks comfort on FACEBOOK, met a so-called 'soul-mate', met-up in person, and then oops, a failed marriage on the cards.
Mummy Eliz's reasoning is, obsessive use of anything is bad, thus to all out there, smash your computer if you have to.
Family Life Team at Christ the King Church once screened a movie, named Fireproof, it's about saving a marriage that is once the rocks, a marriage where communication had broken down entirely due to many reasons.
And during counselling, and after self-reflecting, the most drastic action taken by the male lead was to smash his computer, and use that time instead to face his wife, doing nothing except praying when being ignored initially.
Well, just in case, you think this post is due to Daddy Tiong's excessive use of FACEBOOK, that's not the case, in fact, both of us FACEBOOK's accounts are in dormant stage, registered with profile pictures, we logged in to read once in a while, but have no time to post.

Finally, an event is being organised by the Toa Payoh North Resident Committee.
Granny Siew Khim joined us for the half day outing, and it included visits to Organic Vegetables and Fish Farm along the Lim Chu Kang area.
Princess Chelsea, together with Granny tried the Fish Spa, and felt so ticklish throughout.

This is a great year, the sister-brother pair can play together for hours, and somehow, week after week, the Toa Payoh Pool seemed to work its magic on them.
They can play from 6pm to 8pm, and then still refuse to leave, not just a one-off incident, but week after week.
Kids can really be easily satisfied, just a pool of water, and their imaginations set off. If only adults can be satisfied just as easily, wouldn’t that be great?
It’s our 3rd year participating in the event, and it’s the first time Prince Christian ran non-stop all by himself to the finishing line.
It’s no mean feat, 750m non-stop for a 3 year old pampered little fellow! Mummy Eliz jogged beside him, spurring him on with stories of enemies, crocodiles, dragons etc.
He seemed to get his energy drawn from the fact that Mummy Eliz highlighted, that at a war, the enemy is not going to give a care about whether your legs ache, and that while running away from danger, as in away from a crocodile, the crocodile is not going to slow down if your legs ache.
Thus, continuing on despite the ache in the legs is a great away to train up some good strong muscles, and then, in times of war or danger, we can be better equipped to escape safely.
Then, we had a photo taken with the Mascot from Universal Studios, who is also there under the hot sun!

One nice evening, Prince Christian drew a colourful picture of a cross, and mentioned that Jesus likes the cross.
Princess Chelsea then replied that she thought, it is a well-known fact that Jesus died on the cross for mankind, but she was not sure if Jesus liked the cross.
Then Prince Christian’s candid reply, as he was pasting the picture of the cross onto the fridge set all of us into severe fits of laughter.
“I’m putting this picture on the fridge so that Jesus would know where he can die lah!”
