There’s this thing about waving bye bye to your child. It starts when the child can barely speak. I’m not sure why this is one of the very first milestones we expect of our kids. Mind you, it’s not just “WAVE at mummy!” it’s a “Wave BYE BYE!” Poor kid, after achieving this, we actually…

It’s coming to two months of keeping fit and trying to look fab! One of the issues I’m battling with is WHEN to exercise. Have you thought about it? Here were some questions I had: When we exercise, we burn calories. Are these the calories that we’ve already consumed, or are they the ones we…

We had this on our church bulletin last weekend. Isn’t that what parenting is like too? With faith, we trust that our children would grow up strong and healthy, have the fear of God, have favour with people around and excel in school. But we know for that to happen, there’s tons of tough love…

Do you know you can make a pinhole camera out of cardboard and sticky tape? And with it, you can take photographs and learn to develop it using traditional darkroom methods! We learnt this recently in the Build A Camera Workshop at Npower Education. Here are the materials you need for PART 1 Cardboard Box…

As many of you know, Nathan just turned six. And as the month goes along, I realised we have a few more kids’ birthday parties to attend. Wanting to buy the *perfect* gift, we asked one of the birthday kid’s mummy, “What would your girl like for her birthday?” We got some good ideas after…

Happy Birthday Nathan! Yes, that’s my boy. At six years old. He can’t stand taking pictures, would never look at the camera in the eye if possible. He says stuff like, “I don’t know how to smile” when the photographer coaxes him. He is heavy (I can’t carry him any more) and he is larger…
