On a writing spree

Knowing that I am such a lazy mommy, I must confess that I seldom spend much one-to-one time with Darrius except for the normal stuff like feeding him and bathing him (I hardly read to him these days). Most of the time he will be on his own either playing by himself or watching his DVDs while I busied myself with my blogging work. :mrgreen: Ok, I am feeling guilty… πŸ˜›

Anyhow, this little monster of mine is quite independent now. Beside knowing how to talk back to me, he can do a host of stuff all by himself. I give credit to all the DVDs and VCDs he watches. Honestly, I find that kids can learn a whole lot if we know how to qualify good and positive quality educational programs to be used as a learning tool.

I swear I hardly teach him how to write, I only taught him how to hold a pencil! And yet he can give me something like these…






The above activity book was given by Constance last week and the next day I found all the scribbles in the book. I was quite amazed! His writing ability has definitely surpass my expectation! It never cross my mind that he can write so well! Well, for someone his age and one who has never attended school before… I only bought one link-the-dot book for him a few months back but he only drew circles in that book but never do any writing in it so i was very surprise with the discovery.

Since there are limited boxes he can write in that activity book, I decided to get him an exercise book last weekend when we were in Popular. Once we reached home, he wrote all these…




The strokes are not perfect but the characters are very clear! He knows his ABC very well so he can recognize them even if I ask him randomly and able to answer me without much thinking.

Remember that few Sesame Street VCDs that I bought for him earlier? I think these are some of the best investment I’ve made thus far! They really helps Darrius learn with ease!

    Hao bang, Darrius! πŸ™‚

    When he said “ball” so clearly at my apartment when he was only 14 months old, I knew he has exceptional linguistic skills. Do you fancy raising an English major πŸ˜‰ ;-)?

    You’re so hardworking with Darrius – I have not started any workbooks with Lucas ler πŸ˜›
