Playmates

feb26wseth

It is always a welcome change to have company especially for an only child.

K and Seth had a great time at Fidgets this morning. Although they did not really spend alot of time playing together (since the both of them are still in the parallel play stage), I could tell from K's responses and behaviour that he really enjoyed Seth's company.

I think it is wonderful that K has found a playmate of the same age and interests (they are both extremely fond of the garbage truck). And Seth just lives a few floors below our apartment.

As for K's other interests, he is getting quite good with his plastic golf clubs. Dh can't wait to buy him a set of real clubs, and start K's initiation into the 'I hope I can play golf like Tiger Woods' club.

Wow, K is really good at sports, it was ping pong, then this golf, I can see that he has potentials. :)

I believe every child has something that they will really enjoy, and will keep him motivated and happy. So I guess it is my role to encourage this interest.
Not to a point of hot-housing though, will just let him progress naturally.

Hi Rachel,

1st time to your blog :-) Thks for the comments you left at mine, it led me to your site! You take nice pictures and your boy is quite advanced in his development- considering he hasn't even reached 2!

4malmal, Angeline, Nic - I am a strong believer of the multiple intelligence theory by Howard Gardner, and I believe that every child has got their strengths in a few intelligences. I guess K has a certain level of Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence, which gives me a perspective on how he will be able to learn most effectively.

Merryn - Thanks for your tag.

How would you rate Fidget? Are there sufficient activities to engage kids below 2? :-)

Rachel said...

Ermin - Fidgets is lousy for a kid below 3 years old. The play area for toddlers is pathetic, and kids end up fighting for the cars in the vehicle play area. Not worth paying a visit. I think Rae-ann will have more fun at Botanic Gardens. Btw, K and I have started going to the Jacob Ballas garden once a week, u want to join us?

Thanks for confirmation...had a nagging suspicion after viewing the website...we had a disappointing time at the one over at Dempsey. Yes, JB sounds great... have been wanting to go! In case you haven't heard, have been maidless for more than a month and settling down to new routines...so let me know when you are going and if Rae-ann is recovered from flu, we'll join you guys! :-)
