Preschool

Mark in daycare, 2014-2016.

Mark, Version 3.5 (Years Old)

I'm sending a message of hope to other parents: if your kid is stuck in the baby or toddler phase, don't worry, they actually do grow up... and become fascinating little human beings!

Polite Fiction

With forced cheer and social gatherings, the entire month of December is a prime time of the year for the fine art of social niceties—“The turkey isn't dry at all!", "What a thoughtful gift!", "I'm looking forward to seeing you at Christmas!" and "This reindeer sweater is very slimming!".

Santa Replied!

Mark got a reply from Santa, I just got the letter. So I’m taping a piece of chocolate to it because everybody knows that Santa delivers chocolate.

The Letter

When I announced I was going to do the Santa letter with Mark, instead of praising my thoughtful mothering skills, Feng shrugged. "What does he understand about Christmas?"

The Little Seed

By the look of deep annoyance on his face, I gather that if he had the vocabulary to tell me to go to hell, he would. But he settles for the usual "GO. AWAY."

Three

Mark is turning three. Please, don't say "they grow up so fast." Some days, they don't grow up fast enough. Trust me.

“Yes, Thank you”

Three words that are, in theory, easy to pronounce. English 101. But in real life, accepting help is a bit trickier. I know I'm not good at it. Surely, I can't be the only one?
