He’s 5. Loves numbers and trains. Has terrific memory but also incredibly forgetful (go figure). A leftie but most definitely a left-brainer too. He can’t draw to save his life; his scribbles are mainly numeric sums, number bonds and indefinite mazes. Facts are either right or wrong, there is no in-between for him. That explains his innate sense of righteousness but that also means he feels strongly towards injustice. He’s quick to anger but also to forgive ( though he never forgets). Seems like he is on his way to become a future rocket scientist at his 5-year-old self, but that’s not what I want for him. I want him to have equal opportunities, choices to do what he loves, and freedom to be who he wants to be. He told me he wanted to be my husband when he grows up so that he can live with me forever. Truth is, he made me a mom and I will always stand by him, no matter where he’s at. #thefutureisequal#futuregirl
J Bear’s first violin performance @wolfgangviolin monthly String Social! Making the pianist work hard for his buck 😂 but I’m so proud that he had the courage to stand up there alone and carried himself so well on stage despite never doing this before. 👏👏👏 (plus he so humson I’m more proud that he’s mine 😍😆) #5yearsold
There are super heroes in our midst. Lurking all day where the sun shines and yet we never notice them hanging high up on wires, making sure our concrete jungle is in order. This garden city wouldn’t be what it is without them. But like all super heroes (cue X-Men, Avengers, even The Incredibles), we undermine their efforts and contributions and sometimes, even ostracize them. Why we do that for?
The lunchtime concert by @singaporesymphonyorchestra : 45 min of live performance in the beautiful Victoria Concert Hall is such an experience for the little ones, and just long enough before they start catapulting off their seats 😆 So going to bring him to more of these! #latergram#sso
