ChitterChatter: Do We Become Our Own Parents?

Apr

Growing up, I was always the calm one at home. I had the good temper. I was the one who tried to cheer people up (particularly my little sister) when they weren't in a good mood. I was the patient one. Who knew that motherhood could bring out the best in us and the ugliest. And somehow, during the many years of wonderful upbringing by my incredible parents, they have passed down not only the discipline, the ability to judge right from wrong, the compassion and kindness, but the way they taught us was also silently passed down. I didn't know that until I became a mother myself.

Origami

I've never been very good at doing origami, so this may be a project for the little guy and his daddy (who on the other hand is great at origami). Origami is a simple project to try with little ones. Even though they may be too young to help, they enjoy seeing the end results and playing with the animals/fruits/cars.. etc. And when they're older, it's a great activity for their motor skills. The Origami Club has so many folding projects and tons of instructions. Here are some of our favorites, have fun!

The little guy is currently addicted to the Toca Doctor app. Every chance he gets to play with the iPad, this is the first app he would open and he can spend so much time playing the games over and over again. I don't blame him. The illustrations are adorable and the idea would entertain kids at all ages. You click on each of the problematic areas on the patient's body and you tap, slide or tilt to make them feel better (e.g.

S: "Mama, so you pretend to be the bad guy and I'm Captain America!"

*me pretending to shoot laser beams while S blocks with his pretend shield*

S: "Can Captain America fly?"

Me: "No he can't. He's just really strong and really fast."

S: "Ok, now I'm Iron Man. Iron Man can fly" *sticks out his palm*

Me: "Ok go and save people. I hear someone stuck on top of a building!"

S: "Put on my cape, I want to fly!"

Me: "but Iron Man doesn't need a cape to fly"

S: "Who wears a cape then?"

Me: "that's Super Man"

To all the stay-at-home-parents out there: aren't there days when you just run out of things to do with your little ones and feel so guilty because they're stuck at home with nothing fun to do because they've already played with everything already? Because of that, and thanks to blogging, I find myself always thinking about what projects to do with S. At the age of 3, his imagination and creativity are really starting to shine and I want to help him build on that. Watching him create and draw teaches me so much about how his little mind works, and it's fascinating to say the least.

I'm not always a big fan of wall murals because I usually like things simple, but this African plain decal/mural is as good as it gets. The colors, the geometric shapes and the adorable animals. You can buy them in various sizes to customize to your wall. Made by a French company called E-Glue, they have a wonderful assortment of wall decor and decals to choose from. 

Personalized Pencil Case

When my sister and I were little, we loved collecting pencil cases and pencils. The only reason we were ok when our mom traveled on her own was because she'd bring back the cutest pencil cases and stationery, so we always had something to look forward to. I remember my classmates would always be so jealous of my gear thanks to all the stuff my mom brought back from Asia. These personalized pencil cases are so fun! I especially love the zipper embellishments.

These animal heads by Flat Our Frankie are simply adorable. Cardboard toys are getting more and more creative these days, but not only are their cardboard cars, planes, kitchens awesome, these new unicorn and dino heads are to die for. Our little guy loves to pretend he's a knight these days and he enjoys fighting dragons every day. I'm pretty sure if I give him a horse he can ride on, he'll go nuts.
