Toddler Week

So how has the week been? Obviously not looking the most glamorous since I have never been that glam to start with; with unkempt hair sans make-up and chasing after a toddler the whole time.
The week has been rather tiring but really worthwhile, probably more worthwhile than any of the good weeks put together from all my previous jobs. No demanding and unreasonable bosses, no 'sian' projects to complete, no annoying people to work with...only a babbling, laughing and sometimes crying toddler to content with, as well as a lack of some shut-eye.
My review of this week? It has been indeed an interesting way to start a new chapter of my life...although I would have hoped to get some time in between to catch up on my reading. I have gotten really attached to my little boy, and will continue to be more hands-on in his care even after Belle is back. However I do also look forward to spending some 'me' time in the next week.
As for the highlight of week for Kyle? A visit from Alex and Aunty Linda on Thursday and Friday, here are some pics of the toddlers interacting with one another...

Lunch at SICC poolside

Sharing blueberries

'Stop pulling my t-shirt...'

'Kyle just pinched my face...'

Besides some snatching of toys from one another, a little pinching and hitting, I also learnt that it is always good to have two sets of the same toy. Even having two sets of the toy was not enough, as the one that the other toddler is holding on to is always the more preferred item. But of course there were some happy moments...

There were even free hugs all around when the afternoon ended. When it was time for Alex to go home, I noticed Kyle's expression that he really did not want Alex to leave. As for Alex, it took Linda a bit of prompting to get Alex to follow her into the lift.

Kyle and Mum will be looking forward to the next get together really soon.

As for Kyle, his latest obsession is crayons. He has discovered the wonders of scribbling on paper, and to my dismay, as well as to the rest of the table. Thank goodness for washable crayons, one of the best inventions after diapers...

(there are some problems with the formatting of the paragraphs in this entry, the untidyness of the layout is driving me nutts...)
