From young, I recalled that my mum will bring us to the bank and open a savings account. Small amount as it might seemed; it inculcated a savings behaviour in us – and that money is really not easily earned.
My mum went to get a cow-shaped coin saving box for Xi En from a thrift shop (Xi en was born in Chinese zodiac year of Cow).
We started this saving habit for Xi En when he was around 1 year old. Every time he gets his hands on some coins .. he will throttle to his cow money “box” and stretched for it.
We taught him how to aim and drop the coins in.
Today – Little cow is full and ready to go to the bank!
It’s a good habit to start savings from young!
It’s a belated post.
It’s our second time to the Jacob Ballas Children Garden. This time round we dated our KKH fellow “comrades” and celebrated Fathers’ Day together.
Coincidentally the last time we met up was also last year’s Father’s Day!
The boys have grown a lot since then. They both have some uncanny resemblances as well.
That’s Hao Hao:
That’s the younger one, Xi En:
And the men have aged (just a little lah). Haaa….
We had a good time catching up.
Sometimes getting together even without words give a sense of comfort– only the “comrades” understood the struggle we went through pregnancy and bringing up preemies.
But it’s also great comfort these 2 boys are now healthy and ermm….. haughty! Well… that’s boys for you right?
The extra cheeky one proves to be……:
Yes, my boy.
Hao was all gentlemanly playing with sand tools and Xi En was all restlessly bouncing here and there.
Both boys love the water play too! Xi En has come a long way from disliking these water play areas.
It’s time to buy some proper swim clothes!
Once again, Happy Fathers’ Day to these 2 wonderful, resilient and loving Daddies!
Special thanks to Kim for being the pillar of support for us all these while!
