4th Christmas

This year is the 4th Christmas for The Tatapilla since he was born. This year he is really aware of Santa Claus and had asked many things from him - although, I gave the idea to his head on what to ask. He asked and he got them all.

He received Winnie the Pooh, a watch, goggles and a medicine kit. They are all well appreciated.

His nanna and poppy bought him a racing car bed. It was assembled on Christmas Eve while he was asleep and was put in it while still asleep. When he woke up in the morning, he was so surprised. First thing he said was, is this my room? Then, has Santa been here? Third, had this got a steering wheel? I'll post photos when I get them from my phone - the batter is currently flat.

The bed is a complete ensemble of car themed bedroom - night light, bed sheets and the bed. We were asked if we need mattress protector but he uses the toilets well.

The Wiggles Concert

Yesterday, we went to see The Wiggles at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre. The weather was nice when we left the house. But there was a storm moving south and drove through and to it. It was horrible. The road was slippery and of course, the visibility was almost nil. Plus there were silly drivers who will overtake you and then cut you off really close - in wet weather.

We had a ball. Altough, we all know the song.. it's different watching them live. It was fun. We'll surely do it again next year and I'll make sure that we get the front seat (there's no worry of wearing protective glasses as the closest you'll get will be roses for Dorothy).

Christmas Party 2010

This is the last christmas party for The Tatapilla in his kindy school as we are moving him to a new kindy come New Year. This new school is really close to our home and if one has time, a car is not really necessary.

This year Christmas Party was like the other party in the previous years. Sausage sizzle, snow cones, balloons, a clown, side show alley. And the best thing is we didn't pay a cent. I believe, it's the centre management way of saying thank you to the parents. It's not just limited to the parents as well. You can bring guests as long as you let the centre know. It's very casual as well, one can wear rocawear jeans if they prefer. I came their straight from work so I was wearing my work clothes.

The Tatapilla had fun playing in the playground. One would thought that he's there everyday, he'll be tired of it. But no, it's like new to him. Kids! Need I say more?

Photo with Santa

Sunday afternoon, The Tatapilla and I went to the shops just to see Santa Claus. Before leaving the house we talked that he can have his photo taken sitting on Santa's lap but he won't be shy and he readily agreed. He was so excited while we were queuing up but when it was time to take photos, he was in "sooky" mood. The photographer used a stuffed puppet to amuse him. I was tempted to tell her that The Tatapilla can't be amuse by such things anymore, except maybe of lollies. :)

Anyway, all went well and the photos that I took of him were all quite good.

We did a little bit of bit of retail therapy and I bought him some lollies, much to his delight. Sometimes, I'm thinking of buying him some appetite suppressant pills for his sweets-craving. It's all my fault though because I am not consistent. Oh well, that's by the by.
