What does School Holiday mean to us, mothers?

It's school holiday now...from mid of Novembr 2007 till early January...next year!

Oh my God, it means home will be full of a toddler's voice whole day...nonstop (except during bed time). It also means I have to be very very terribly creative in coming up with various activities to keep this easily bored toddler entertained.

Shoot...his cousin is in quarantine for a week, down with Mumps despite the fact that he had had the vaccination against the virus. Alamak...kenapa pula. If he were okay... we could have play-dates everyday! or...perhaps two or three days this week.

Let's see what we did today. Since it rained almost hte whole day, we had our activities indoor:
we played ball games -bowling, golf, throw-and-catch,
we made paper rocket (original idea is taken from Aqila's school project)
we read books -the police officer book, the police car book, the ambulance book, the postman book, the A to Z train book, the Thomas the Tank Engine book,
we practised phonics,
we watched some TV programme and movies -it's a bugs life, ladder 49 (!!)
we baked cookies



in between the activities, I had a craving for a 'nap' would you believe that!
huhuhuuu...i wa so so sleepy but Aqila was so fully energized,
dari mana itu tenaganya ya?

anyway...i survived today.

tomorrow? is another day...

i plan to bake a chocolate cake and frost it with chocolate layer. Got this new recipe from some website and my old cookbook. Keep your fingers crossed for I've been wanting to cook a delicious choco cake complete with the frosting for Aqila!

Hey...consider this as a trial before Aqila's bithday next month!
Promised my self I will make (well...try to make) a birthday cake for him.
I really hope it's not a too unrealistic goal for me.....hehehe
