School Hunt Day


Four schools.

One with aircon.

Three without.

We knew exactly which one is for us.


But, am I ready for this?

Class bully. During the visit, I gatecrashed cousin Josh class. I wanted to join his neighbouring table, next to a girl. I pulled out an empty chair by her side. She pushed it right back and told me I cannot sit there. While she kept an eye on me, I went to Josh, Issac and Triston's table and where I was more than welcomed! Boys are more fun.

Worksheets. The teacher invited me to join in by giving me a worksheet. I held on to it the whole day, and Mii was overwhelmed by it when she finally had a look at it. Its the beginning of twenty years of worksheet, homework, tests, projects, assignments & exams.

Discipline. Not just me, but my parents too. Our appointment to visit is at 10am. We arrived at 10.30am. Principal spared no discipline and told us we were supposed to be there at 10am! Mii wanted to point fingers - at Dii. A glare flew by instead?


Yes, I am so ready for this!

Five Toddler Temperaments

  1. Angel Toddler
  2. Textbook Toddler
  3. Touchy Toddler
  4. Spirited Toddler
  5. Grumpy Toddler


I say I am a Spirited Toddler.

The Spirited Toddler is extremely active physically, often willful, and may be prone to temper tantrums. She is very social and curious and will point to objects and reach out for them and for other kids early on. This child is the consummate adventurer; she will have a go at anything and is very determined. She displays a great sense of achievement when she accomplishes something. At the same time, she needs very clear boundaries so that she doesn't act like a steamroller, trampling anyone or anything in her path. Once they start crying, Spirited Toddlers have stamina and staying power, so you're in for a long haul if you don't have a good routine going. Given good guidance and an outlet for her energy, however, a Spirited Toddler can become a leader and very accomplished in whatever area interests her.

Water Doodling Days

All three items needed for Aqua Doodle play are kept in separate locations. First I will take mat out of the box. Next I go to the bathroom and retrieve the water bowl. Finally i point to the pen holder for the pen. Mii then sits me down on the kitchen floor and leave me to some mini splish splash. When Mii nags me to stop putting the pen in the mouth. I pass her the water bowl, pour away the water, return the bowl to the sink. Leave the mat to dry. We will do it all over again tomorrow before my bath.
