According to K, it was. He decided that it was so sunny indoors that he insisted on wearing my sunglasses while we were in the mall.

Kids have that affinity with nature and I don't think that I should be depriving him of it, although I am not particularly fond of perspiring profusely under the hot sun / getting bitten by ants. However, for K's sake, looks like we will be having more regular picnics in the near future.
K spotted a dragonfly! (While Zac wonders what is all that commotion...)

Turned out that Saturday morning was a mini SE alumni of sorts, as I met another ex-colleague Shaw Wun with her daughter Alissa. Looks like Botanic Gardens is a great place to have family picnics on Saturdays.
Back to more action...
Need a short breather. Taking a sip of ice cold water (So shiok!)

And the little monkey at the park...or rather...K's new pose for the camera.

He was a little different. Less of his usual rough-and-tumble play, a little more subdued. Can't be certain if he exhibited some gentlemanly qualities since he was playing with Rae-anne 'mei mei', or that he was feeling a little under the weather. I do hope it is the former.

K has been asking me to get him a helmet lately, as he is so convinced he needs one as 'Speed Racer' wears one and so do all the motorcycle/scooter riders that he sees on the roads. When we got him the sports helmet last night, he was all enthusiastic to put it on and wore it even while brushing his teeth.
As for potty training, K has told me that he wants to "Wear diapers, don't want underpants and use the potty" for now. Sigh...we will just have to take a break from potty training and will try again in another 2 months.

K is displaying more of his boldness and need for independence. He now tells me, "Don't hold hands", and prefers to walk by himself. I find myself getting really naggy as I say these words repeatedly when we are out of the house; "Stay next to mummy...don't walk away...where are you going...turn back...watch your step...come here..."
Two is a really adorable age, however it does get really challenging sometimes. From the words of a really experienced mom, Lay Keng (Seth's mom, she has 4 children), "Persevere in your discipline and set limits, don't give in. It will surely get better once he turns three." I really hope so.

This time my helper and I were in for a pleasant surprise. As my helper stood at the side, looking very apprehensive, since most of the previous haircuts K will be on her lap and I will be the one restraining the hands and trying to calm him down. The both of us weren't sure what was in store for us this time...
K asked to sit on the chair by himself, requested for "Thomas" to be played on the screen in front of him and sat calmly through the whole haircut without any resistance. He grinned widely and exclaimed "Ah!" when he saw his new hairstyle in the mirror, right after when the stylist styled his fringe and said "Finished!"
Like any proud parent, I gushed over him after the haircut and was extremely enthusiastic to get him a new puzzle and ball from the toy shop afterwards.
