School's out!: Science in the Mall
I bring the kids for some activity every day, like take a train somewhere, to the museum, to meet a friend, its very tiring lugging 3 kids on my own all the time but it sure beats staying home watching tv!
After meeting a long time friend who recently remarried, we chanced upon the 'Science in the Mall' at Plaza Singapura. There are workshops and a sand pit where the kids can pretend to be paleontologists. Actually the boys were really just interested in the sand pit, but to play at the sand, they have to go through all the workshops too, for $20 per child. They got to make a fossil clay, which I thought was quite cool, a dinosaur door hanger and a dinosaur puppet. The workshop facilitators were some young people who were very nice and chatted with the boys. I even left them there for a while to shop at my favourite store, Daiso.
I have been very tired recently, because Joy is too active. She climbs out of her high chair, lunges forward into air, probably thinking I will always catch her, or sits on the ledge of the high chair then puts one leg out like in a 'Truth or Dare', and she climbs all over the place,pulls everything down from the cupboard, licks the ants crawling on the floor, and sucks the marker at the white board while we are not watching. Every day I feel like I just did a triathlon, the only thing is I haven't really taken part in one before,but it sure must be very tiring! Oh well. Perhaps I can look forward to losing weight twice as quickly!
