Never Underestimate your Child

Back Posting: 5th March 2012

It was definitely a day that I hope
I'll never have to deal with as a parent.
Sophia fell and ended up
with a gash on her chin.
(which requires stitching at the children's hospital)

I swear that she darn brave for her age!
We were given the choice of either
general anesthetic or local anesthetic
for the procedure to be carried out...

She underwent the whole procedure with only local anesthetic.

Total of 4 stitches done!

I had to promise her the sky and everything else 
to keep her mind off when the doctor was stitching her up....
This was me fulfilling one of my promises.
I've got no idea why....
But McDonald's Happy Meals always makes kids Happy!

The day that I wasn't looking forward to. 
Removing the bandage
and applying antibiotics cream to the wounded area.

Stitches still in tack, 
but look at that beautiful smile!
Celebrating Goddess of Mercy Birthday at Waterloo Street

Brave Sophia had her Stitches taken out!

I am thankful that the whole episode is over.
And now we'll just have to let the wound heal on it's own 
keeping our fingers crossed that there would not be any scaring.
Mentally or Physically.

SmartKids Asia 2012

16th March 2012 - 18th March 2012
Singapore Expo Hall 5

SmartKids Asia is truly one of the world's biggest  Educational Kids' Fair.
Fun-filled family event where there is something to do for everyone.
A place where kids discover and experience educational stimulation 
and mind-expanding fun through exciting interactive activities 
put together by 200 leading multinational 
and local organizations.

We spent the whole day hanging out at the event.
And even when it was time to go,
Hiroshi wouldn't wanna budge.

Let's see how much fun he was having!!!

Rock Climbing by Climb Asia
($6 for 10 minutes/ $9 for 15 mins)

I guess it's a boy thing,
this was the ONLY thing he wanted to do when we got to the fair!!!

Hiroshi assisted by the professional instructors 
from Climb Asia.

The instructor is very very encouraging!!!

The smaller wall on the opposite side is FREE to climb and equally as exciting for him!

Smart Hygiene by Dettol
Interactive 4 station game 
where we learn the 6 steps hand-washing habits
to fight against nasty germs in our environment.

And of course there were many other fun activities happening for Hiroshi,
but I was equally too engross to even remember
whipping the camera out to "catch" the moment!
