Allergy test

Isaac went for his allergy test on Friday. His reaction to peanut has reduced tremendously from 20mm by 20mm to 4mm x 4mm. Because the bump has reduced so much in size, hub asked if he could go off epipen. We have been replacing them for years to put it from childcare and now in school and oosh. Not that we wish to use it!

Anyway the doctor say no BUT also suggested for us to send Isaac for peanut challenge in the hospital some time in Feb. Was told that he will be given peanuts to consume and then monitor his reaction to it. Sounds quite scary! I’m guessing if it’s not severe, he can probably live without carrying an epipen!

First camping experience

image

We went for our first camping trip last Saturday at Sydney Lakeside Holiday Park, North Narrabeen. I always knew I will love camping. So off we went with another 12 families from Isaac’s class.

image

Our first camping tent and it’s a 6-man tent from Aldi for $129. It’s spacious and perfect for our family.

image

The front part is the balcony. You can actually unzip and roll-up the outer layer to the side so you could see the balcony through the mesh (inner layer). We kept it closed most times as we have our esky and personal belongings there. 

The back part is where we sleep.

image

We bought the adult Carribees sleeping bags many years ago and hardly used it. One of them is still unopened. I picked up the kid’s sleeping bag from K-Mart last min when I realised we were missing one for Isaac.

The kids had a blast at the water park just 2 mins walk from our site. The bathroom is just opposite! How convenient is that! Oh, did I say the lake is just 2 mins walk too?

Even the ducks came to visit!

Everyone is getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner! Each family brings a plate. So we have 12 dishes from different continents. We have Australia, America, Brazil, China, UK, Malaysia, Korea, etc – not sure if I missed any. Plenty of food to share.

Some of the dishes were not taken. Initially we wanted to do chicken satay but find it too troublesome. So we did a chicken cold pasta. Not “Malaysian” at all!

image

Delicious Korean BBQ! The Korean families rock!

image

We called it a night around 10.30pm. It was windy and lightly rained that night and I keep waking up each time I feel the tent moving. So afraid it was going to fly off or collapse!

image

The ducks say hello the next morning! Taking a morning walk I guess.

image

Enjoy my breakfast!

The boys spent some time in the lake before we all checked out.

As I write this post, I am missing the camping day already. Despite packing for only one night, we had so much fun. It’s the best holiday we ever had!

Audiology

3 weeks ago, Isaac’s class teacher walked up to hub and addressed that Isaac isn’t giving much response when being called. She reckons that we should send him to see the doctor just to make sure his hearing is ok.

So we made an appointment with the GP. She said his hearing is fine. Speech is fine. For a peace of mind, we took him for a hearing test. We went a week later. Got him tested. Results came out just what the GP said. FINE.

I spoke to a few mums on this and it appears that most of their boys are like that. I called it “selective hearing”. I’m pretty sure if I say “who wants an ice cream?” in my softest voice, he will be the first to say ME! Oh boy..

A letter to Santa

Isaac wrote a letter to Santa this week.

image

I said he could write up to 10 wishlist but he’s happy with just 6.

image

Here’s what he wants.

1. Pirates lego
2. Thunderbird (what’s that?)
3. Lego Starwars
4. Batman toy (what for!)
5. Buncho balloons (current craze)
6. Water gun (can’t have enough)

His interest in Lego started at 5 y.o. If you remembered, he received like 10 if not more Lego as birthday gift. He has already finished building all of them.

One Sat, he said he wanted to go home to build Lego! One morning, he woke up to build Lego! No brekky. Just Lego. What a bliss to keep him settle at home. He otherwise jumps and talks very loud. You could hear him from every corner of the house.

My project now is how do i display all his Lego. It’s all over the house atm.

This Xmas, more Lego that is!

School Fun Day

It was the school fun day last Sunday. It started from 10am but we didn’t arrive until 12.30pm because we were at a birthday party.

image

The weather was holding off a bit on that day.

image

I helped out at the cupcakes decorating stall. Here’s Isaac giving me some business.

image

He went on the long slide for at least 10 times but can never beat the mobile animal farm.

image

My little man trying to tell you that he’s a brave boy. Braver than his dad :)

image

Snake? What snake? I’m not scare.

image

Where you think you’re going? Come back here.

image

Come here i said.

image

He’s got my genes. Daddy never like animals. Let alone have a close contact. I am the opposite. So here you go. Totally a mummy’s boy here :)

Poor black shoes

image

This is his 2nd pair of shoes and lasted 1.5 term as compared to his 1st pair which lasted 2 terms! This pair has a better quality yet shorter lifespan? Something is wrong with the owner!!!

He likes to rub the front of his shoes on the ground while walking! WHY!?? I reckon he will outgrow his 3rd pair before the starts of next term in Jan 2016!
