So, apparently this was an extremely Abby-centric week! I felt like I was with her & at school for various activities non-stop, probably because I was! It came to an end with her tucked in to what has to be the most comfy cozy tent in the history of sleeping... Continue reading

Once a month there is a grade-level assembly at school. Once class hosts, and puts on a performance based on a thematic unit they've been working on, and then there are awards handed out, 3 or 4 students per class, for kids who have exemplified the IB Learner Profile. The... Continue reading

We celebrated Korean Lunar New Year with Abby's class at school today; the kids enjoyed a traditional spinning top game and competed against each other for who could spin the longest. Continue reading

This is on the bulletin board outside Abby's classroom... It's a Chinese lantern with her name on it that she made herself, with a calligraphy brush. Has a Mama ever been more proud? Continue reading

Tuesday is library day at school, which means that every Monday night I hear, "Can I read it just one more time, Mommy, pleeeease?" about 40 times before bed. Continue reading

Is there a better rainy day activity than jigsaw puzzles? Today we did 8 (or was it 9..?) 100 piece puzzles, 6 with somewhere between 34 & 75 pieces, and 2 500 piece puzzles. My eyes were bleary and my knees hurt by early afternoon. Continue reading

Dear Charlie, I know that you love your sister and have trained yourself to wake up early to see her and have some play time together before she leaves for school. I understand, I find it incredibly cute, and it's one of the little anecdotes I'll be telling you when... Continue reading

Do you have those friends who just get you? I've been lucky enough to find several ladies who fit that description here in HK over the last (gasp) 5 years. This particular lunch buddy and I just seem to see eye to eye on just about everything and I'm always... Continue reading

Thank goodness for hand-me-downs! Charlie is borderline obsessed with shoes. No, wait, I take it back. There's no "borderline" about it-- she's full on. She'll tromp around in my shoes, Daddy's shoes, any she can get her hands, on really (but big sissy's are preferred), and then head for the... Continue reading

** Even as I sit to write this entry I am collapsing in fits of giggles. Any typos are a direct result of laughter & simply cannot be helped. Abby came up to me this afternoon with a big dramatic sigh and announced, "Mom, I need my lawyers." Obviously this... Continue reading

A stolen hour and a half to myself during school & nap to indulge in a much overdue mani-pedi. And no, I didn't choose any of the colors so cutely displayed in the cardboard junk boat. Continue reading

In the tried-and-true fashion of the SCMP, they're excellent at stating the obvious....although my lungs scooped them on this particular story about 2-1/2 weeks ago. Continue reading

Another great afternoon spent among our HK extended friend/ family crowd to celebrate a very cool little dude turning 3. By the way, these are the Jessica Seinfeld cookbook cupcakes & they are not only kinda healthy-ish (and yes I get the irony of using that word to describe a... Continue reading

Self portrait in an elevator following a haircut & afternoon out by myself. I'd say it was too bad the autofocus chose the scratches on the back of the door instead of my face, but I'm actually quite pleased with the accidental effect. Continue reading

Two kids fed, bathed & asleep in time for us to make a 7:20 movie that's a 25 minute drive away with traffic on a Friday night was quite an accomplishment. Granted, we got in our seats at approximately 7:19:59.5, but we made it!! Continue reading

When Abby got home from school today, Charlie was still napping. After a few minutes, we heard the usual, "Hey!" as Charlie hails someone when she awakes. Abby went running in, instructing me to "Wait here, I'm getting sissy up today!" and when I was allowed in to the room,... Continue reading

My sweet, sweet Charlie.... If you ever wonder why Mommy sometimes scoops you up from behind & takes in a long, deep drink of you, this is why. It's not possible that there is a warmer, sweeter, more delicious smelling spot on earth. Continue reading

The closets are cleaned out (mostly), the clothes in my dresser are re-folded, and my jewelry has been straightened up. Ben & I thought cleaning our bodies out would be a good start to a new year, so we're kicking off 2012 with a 3-day juice cleanse. This little concoction... Continue reading

September 8, 2010. That makes it exactly 9 months since I have lifted a finger to my little blog. But even then it was neglected, dilapidated & in sad shape. Here's hoping that me calling a "start over!" has the... Continue reading
