Edison at Six

I seldom write about Edison’s milestones these days because it’s not easy to capture the essence of his development now. It’s more mental and emotional rather than physical. As always, updates about a little big boy are not as much fun as those of a little baby boy. But let’s face it – growing up is FUN. So, I need write a post about him today. At this age, this…

Parent-Teacher Meeting – May 2013

Before the Jun holiday began, I attended the parent-teacher meeting at Little Edison’s school. I can’t believe how quickly two terms have come and gone. He has completed half a year in K2, and that is to say, he will be entering Primary One in six months’ time. Argh! Primary One. The term itself never fails to send jitters to me. As usual, I attended the parent-teacher meeting with average…

The Call That Brightens Up My Day

Ever since Little Edison discovered the marvel of telephone, he has been calling me every day when I’m at work. Sometimes he calls up to four times a day to share with me about an event at school, what he has for lunch, what TV program that he’s watching, and what other monkey business that he’s doing at home. I welcome all these calls as I often find them very…

Little Edison Talks

As a parent, one of my favourite things to do is to listen to my son’s talking. I love to hear the thoughts that come out of his head. Yesterday, he went for a school excursion to the Singapore Zoo to see the pandas. Here is an amusing conversation with him this morning when we talked about his Zoo trip: Me: How many pandas did you see at the Zoo…

My Six-Year-Old Big Boy

The second week of school is ending soon today, how is everyone doing? I hope that all our kids have settled down in school already. As for Little Edison, yes, he has settled down in K2 this year. It’s the same school, same routine and same classmates for him. Only changes are his teachers and classroom. So technically, it should be an easy transition for him. Since he started school…

What I Like Best About My Son?

A friend recently asked me what I like best about my son. I love this question and I felt a strong urge to answer her. With his presence, each day I can find something that is better than the day before. Each day when I thought I couldn’t love him anymore than I do today; and tomorrow would come and prove me wrong. Little Edison turned five in September this…

Edison’s 5th Birthday Party at School

Two weeks ago, we held a birthday party for Little Edison at his school. Initially, I was very tempted to forgo his birthday celebration in school this year as we just came back from Hong Kong. Works were piling-up in the office, and we were running short of time for the preparation. In summary, no mood + no time. But deep down, I know that my son loves celebrating his…

Turning FIVE!

Dear Edison, I wanted to write this letter to you last week, but it was delayed as Mommy is really, really busy. So sorry about it. You turned FIVE last week. A big little boy by all accounts, Mommy is so happy for you. Last year, we talked about what your future occupation would be. And this year, you told me that you want to be a doctor when you…
