OHEMGEE it’s already mid-November?! What happened to 2013?? How could it have flown by so faaaaast *wailsinabsolutehorrorforGodknowswhatreason*
It seems like almost every post of mine starts with me gasping about time moving by at super speed, ahahhaha…
Last Friday was Chemps’ school concert day. It was a day that the entire family had been looking forward to. Chemps had been practicing her steps and lines day in and day out! In the mornings when we’re driving to school, in the evenings when we’re driving home from school, in between chewing her food at meal times, in the shower, every second she could, she’d be practicing one thing or another.
At one point, I felt that she was starting to pressure herself too much. Her eczema started to flare (which happens only when she’s stressed or eats eggs). I gave her constant reassurance and encouragement so that she’d chill a bit. Can’t believe she does this to herself, Chempedak the perfectionist. She’s only four! She must get this from my Dad.
Anyhoots, concert day came and Chemps was part of so many acts! Alhamdulillah, she played her part well in all of them. We were exceptionally impressed by her during her ballet performance. She was absolutely mesmerizing, her movements were just so graceful! I swore if I didn’t have Pomelo tugging at my hands (legs, baju and hair) I would have been sobbing my eyes out. I felt so proud as I watched my little ballerina on stage. I’m sure the husband felt the same.

We only realized she was part of so many acts at the end of the concert! She was part of the opening act, nasyid, ballet, piano semi-solo, dikir barat and closing act! Lima kali tukar baju woooo! My mom was amazed how quickly her teachers managed to change her outfits. The teachers did an absolutely wonderful job in choreographing the children. It’s not easy handling kids below the age of five, but they managed to do that and more! Kudos to the lovely teachers of TASSEK!

Next year’s concert will be an emotional one for sure. It will be Chemps’ final concert at TASSEK and it’ll be Pomelo’s first.
Speaking of Pomelo, can you believe that he’s going to be a one year old in a few weeks time? Gosh. My baby’s going to be a toddler soon. *sniffles*
He hasn’t mastered his walking skills yet, which is absolutely fine by me. He can take his time, I’m exhausted as it is going after him as he speed-crawls and climbs everywhere.
Oh! He has a tooth already! Hahaha yes that’s right, ONE tooth! It’s just so cute every time he gives his cheeky grin with that solo tooth poking out from his lower gum. I can’t seem to get a proper picture of him with his little tooth, the kid can’t keep still!! All my attempts at taking his tooth pic turns out blurry! I almost gave up and then a miracle happened, I got this pic!
Can you see his little tooth? 😀
Ok that’s all I can manage for now, much more to share but I’ve got errands to run and kids to entertain.. hahahah. Till then, ta!!
