KY is so excited as it's been sometime since we last took her to swim! Her first swim was when she was 5 months old. Then now and then when the weather is fine and when we happened to be at home, we would bring them to swim.
She is so excited and wanted to learn to swim(without her swimming ring) after watching another jie jie swimming in the pool. She spent like close to an hour in the pool.
It was Shone first swim(at 1 year-old) and I scooped Shone up after like 20 mins in the pool splashing water and went up my unit to shower. After both of us took our shower( and blow my hair even) we went down to pick up the jie jie(DH is with her).
However, KY still refused to come up from the pool, then i brought Shone for a walk at the pool side and fish pond for like 10-15 mins, still...my girl refused to come out from the pool...DH said why not you go up and come down 30minutes later?
As it was rather hot, I wanted to go to the mini market to buy an ice-cream(my fav :P) but realised I forgot to bring any $. Then suddenly I thought why not I go up again to my unit, bring some $ down and buy me some ice-cream and try to TEMPT KY with it. Perhaps that would make her come out from the POOL!
So I went and practically shout and SHOW OFF my ice-cream at poolside :P ( I think I managed to TEMPT not only her but many kids at the kids pool :P..this mommy..must be losing her mind??)...anyway I didn't care...kept calling her..and LICK my ice-cream..Mango Tango(yep the new flavour from Walls..not bad..)
And finally..it works ;) she obediently leave the pool and came after me for ice-cream..hahah..
So folks, this is one of my tricks :P which succeeded.. it works !

What is your children favourite toys?
When we were a first-time parent, my husband and I were more crazy about getting toys for KY than she is. However, we found out that most of the time, KY is only interested to play with the price tag card or the toy boxes rather than the toys itself!
Nevertheless we find that the usage of TOYS in early childhood learning plays a part in nurturing their creativity, motor skills and it is what is essential to kids besides, eating, sleeping and poo-ing :P. Playing is very important to a child. And toys plays a big part of it.
Here in the picture(above), KY is stacking the cube to build as if a castle like home for the bee? haha..or was it a beehive after reading her yet another toy, "Right At Home" clothbook which has an activity whereby they can place each animals(bee, horse, fish etc) into their own(right) home! Very nice toy indeed which I personally loved! I often asked KY to put all animals back home to go to bed together with her as part of her bedtime routine or when she refused to sleep. :P Another trick of mine!
However, I feel that toys does not restrict to those pricey and of course specially-designed branded ones...toys which can be found around the house(and safe one of course) can be used to nurture their creativity as well.
Just like these two pictures, the toy that KY is playing and having so much fun is nothing but clothes peg, but she and her cousin, Zoey(DOB:27 Sep 2007) can spend so much time assembling and wearing them, playing pretend games as if they are the princesses for the day! How fun is that!
And toys to us, is life-saver in a sense, especially during travelling. We cannot do without toys in the car, like what Shone is having right now(picture on the left) is a simple plastic hammer toy(which cost only RM2 at Tesco), this toy can keep him entertained while we drive back to my in-law's place or when we went home to visit my parents.
