Youth park

Sunday morning youth park walk - Vernon no longer scared of sitting on the swing.
he want us to push harder and higher for him to awing higher. After taking the swing he asked us to accompany him to play the slide and he is more independent. He no longer want me to hold him, he just want me to wait for him from the bottom.
when we walk to the exercis area, he want to try on every equipement along the walking path.
the only way I can tell him is this is for big boy and not for small boy like u.
after a while he accept the truth as I let him sit on one of the equipment and his leg cannot reach the peddar.

we discover the new area that just develop for public at the youth park. lots of fruits tree around especially the durian and jack fruits. very nice view and greenery place for kids to have a walk.

Danny & Daddy (Favorite cartoon)

Vernon's another favorite cartoonese - Danny & Daddy
I was unaware of the fun of watching this denny & daddy till one day my maid told me that Vernon's boy favorite cartoon is showing now. call him lah from the bedroom.
I immediately called him :

Mommy : Danny & daddy is here
Vernon : turn his face and immediately come down from the bed and left behind all his books.
He sit on the living room sofa and watch till the show finish. he not only watching but love to guessing what danny is try to test his daddy.

I just wonder what is this cartoon all about and what makes it so attractive to Vernon.
After sitting together and watching together with Vernon boy I truely understand why.
This cartoon is really good as it teach your kids to think and use their imagination on guessing.
if u see how danny test his papa. really artistic in danny's imagination unlike his papa.
Daddy is a more normal thinking person. and it also teach how the relation betweem a father and son works.

highly recommend for parents out there to let their kids watch this.

Jab - "Influenza"

5-Apr-2008 Saturday - This is the 3rd visits to Dr. Sim after Dr. Sim moved to SRIGIM hospital since Jan 08. Today Vernon will had his "Influenza" jab which is to prevent from the flu and it's newly introduce as I see was not in the original jabs plan.
as usual, I dropped Vernon medical card to get a number on my way to buy fruits at the lorong kulit. When I reached home, Vernon boy still watching TV but can see he is very tired and sleepy, he woke up too early this morning. About 10:30am, he went to had his morning nap.
we waited till he woke up about 12pm then only get ready to go to Dr.Sim clinic.
we reached there within 10 min time since the distance is shorter compare to GMC.
There were 3 kids still waiting for their turn together with their parents. Very soon, the nurse called up Vernon to had his weight.
I am very relief after hearing that Vernon finally gain a little bit weight.

**Weight on 5-Apr - 11kg.
After complete measure his weight, Vernon walked out from the room sit on the kids chair in the center of the lobby outside the Dr. Sim's clinic. later, there's a little girl walk in together with her kakak. I don't see the little girl mom and not too sure why some parents can let their maid to fully handle their kids.
alright..................the little girl just right in the opposite of Vernon and push the table towards Vernon. Immediately Vernon turn his head and complaint to me......

Vernon : Mommy.................push table.
Mommy : Never mind, u told her "please, do not push the table"
This Vernon boy was so humble, he dare not say any words to the girl and just keep complaining. Then the girl walk away.......later on I just knew that Vernon and the little girl are at the same age. From here, we need to train Vernon boy to be brave to say out when he got bully by others.
a few minutes later, Vernon was called into Dr. Sim clinic. He no longer smile this time, i think when they grew up and they understand more. They can expecting what will happened to them. He can now say Dr.Sim "cucuk, cucuk" leg.
Dr. Sim have to use the sticker book to temporary cool down him and stopped him from crying b4 gave him the jab. After the jab, Dr. Sim asked about whether did we gave Vernon any deworm medicine and our reply is not yet.
So Dr. Sim prescribed a deworm medicine for Vernon- Vermox (chocolate flavour)
On our way to have our lunch together with Nai nai, e-po & Chor chor at PSC. Vernon keep complaint to us :

Vernon : Dr. Sim no good, inject vernon 痛 痛.

He repeated twice and even told all of the family members about it.

In the evening, we gave him the Deworm medicine. Vernon love it so much and very lucky we don't see any worm the next day or even the following day when he had his big business.
