People said I’ve been emo lately. Yeah-lah, life is not always a bliss rite? Sometimes up, sometimes down. But most importantly is how we pick ourselves up and stand on our own two feet again.
Come to think of it, that is the basis of life. Since our baby was born, we’ve been encouraging him to lift his head up. A couple of months later, we encouraged him to roll over, then crawl and then walk. When he starts walking, he’s bound to fall and bump himself. What matters most is not the fact that he fell, but how he gets up from the fall.
As mothers, we can’t restrict our kid too much. We need to let them explore, for only through the hands-on experience will they learn. What we can do however is, to guide them. To be there and hold their hand until they are ready to let go.
With a blink of an eye, the little one will one day grow big or bigger than Daddy.
Most kids these days are very inquisitive. Their brain cells are very active and connected. I believe their food intake and exposure play a vital role in their upbringing. There are plentiful stimulator tools out there to stimulate our little one from birth.
Remember that Youtube video I shared recently? It made me realised how important brain cell connections are to growing kids. I discovered that one of the ways to maximise brain cell connections is through their diet. That was when I stumbled upon Anmum Essential and the microsite Connected Tots. Hehe.. if only-lah my brain cells were much more connected when I was younger, boleh-lah I be a real lawyer instead of loyar buruk-ing on FB and Twitter! :P
Don’t click on the above picture, it’s just a print screen of the actual microsite!
I clicked on “Mum’s Role” and was furnished with lots of great tips on how to stimulate brain cell connections and creating an engaging learning environment!It hit me right in the head when I read about letting the child wander around, touch and experience the things he sees in a park as when Ethan was younger, I takut to let him touch things fearing that they might be dirty and all. Now I know that a child learns quicker by interacting with the real thing! Now I go.. “touch-lah Ethan, touch touch!” Hehe.. Tengok-tengok the Daddy pulaks yang enjoying the touch to feel concept! o.O
There is also Stories page where I can click on a book and read it with Ethan!
He even requested me to substitute Simon with Ethan in the story “Simon Learns Quick!” So I had to read, “Ethan is a little boy..”
But what is most interesting (for Ethan) has got to be the Games page. He simply loves it! Watch this video on him playing the games..
I have also requested sampling for Anmum Essential as I’m totally amazed at what I’ve learnt!
My boy is growing..
He often wonders what lies beyond..
He has his own clique..
They’ll start exploring and learn new things together…
As long as I’m sure that I’ve provided the very best foundation for him, I’m confident he will be able to face the world and think out of the box! To get your very own sampling of Anmum Essential, click here.
Now now… let’s go jalan-jalan and look for cengkerik or anything, catch it and touch it! Jangan sampai that fella masuk your mouth and be your dinner sudah!:P
Home is where MY heart is.
I am a mother to two boys; Ethan and Ayden and a wife to Darling William. I'm a stay at home mum who blogs to break the monotony of life and to avoid feeling jaded. Would love to get to know all the Super Mommies and Daddies and Babies or Singles out there with the hope that we can learn more from each other. Most of all, I am a happy person, and I hope YOU are too.
