Highlights of Jan 2017

Jan 2017 was certainly a month of mad scheduling for me and the kids.  It was hectic getting back into the school mode for the kids and waking up as early at 5.45am to get ready for the school day.

I had to restart my engine also as I enterd the new year.  The 6 week year end holidays that we had really turned my schedule upside down. We were spending a lot of time outside and deviated from the normal waking and sleeping hours.

It was a big shift in time table for me too as I adjust to the new earlier time table as Monkey boy now has to travel further to go to  his secondary school.  He now has to cope with 8 subjects instead of 4 and it ias a rather steep learning curve for him adjusting from Primary school to Secondary school.

The year started of with a blast for him as it was the 2nd time that he was presented at Edusave Scholarship by Mr Desmond Choo.   He was within the top 10% of their level and course in terms of academic performance, and had demonstrated good conduct.

I’m really proud that he was able to remain with the top 10% of his level consistantly throughout his primary school years.

In January I reviewed the First Family Feeling Guide . It was a book that gives parents a better understanding on how to deal with the different feelings that a child may experience.  I found this book a good starter book to get the child to disscuss how he feels with the adult.   The child needs to be able to express himself properly to grow up to be a emotionally balanced adult.

January was also the month when I came out with 20 ideas to make it the BEST year ever.  What better time then to start creating ideas at the start of the year so one can follow through.

How was your month of January?

  1. Dominique, WOW, MonkeyBoy is growing fast! Kids are notorious for growing up way too quickly. That’s good news that he’s doing well academically. I hope the rest of the year goes well for all of your kiddos and family. January was a quiet month for us with no worries. Thanks for visiting and joining my WW linky party. Have a good afternoon!

  2. Looks like you kicked off January well. Congratulations on your son’s Edusave scholarship. My 11-year old recently received an offer for scholarship at a progressive school in our city, and as parents, it made us feel proud so I’m sure you do, too.

  3. the start of the year has indeed been a fruitful one for you. it must be tiring, but then a happy one. Kudos to your little boy (no longer little pala hehe).
