April's first fairy tale

Today, April's exam is finally over, May's exam was over 2 days ago. They are allowed to watch TV, play games, read books, create crafts and do whatever they love from this evening onwards, because I have banned them from doing all these a month ago. I am so kiasu, I reckon.

My 8 years old, April enjoys drawing at her leisure. These 3 drawings were her latest masterpieces. I find it so cute, as she even wrote some scripts at each drawing.


Thus, this has become her first fairy tale.

I have finally found them a teacher, whom is going to teach them singing. The singing lesson starts next week, but I have yet to call their swimming coach.

Next two weeks, I have to be their makeup artist again, they both will take part in the year end concert at school.

  8. This shows that April is growing up and her imagination grows along.

    Sometimes I wish my kids would grow up slowly and remain innocent and naive~

    *I don't want mine to "love this boy", "like that boy" so soon, uaaaahhhh..... *

    1. But of course, nothing beats her own drawing the best!

      Guide her to use bubble talk when Prince and Princess chat, hehehe~ The sentence is for narration only.

      Delete
    2. oh the bubble is a good idea.. that would make value-add the whole picture.. hahaha!! can also teach her to use ComicStrip lah, but then later she won't draw anymore, kekekeke~~

      Delete
    3. cannot lah, ComicStrip is for old and lazy people like us.. kids better get them to draw out of their hearts~~ :)

      Delete
    4. Bubble talk is definitely a good idea. I will tell her next time seeing her drawing.

    1. Laze at home will make them a lazy bum, i don't like them gluing to TV and computer all the time. So, I must get them learning something useful.

  20. Her drawings are really lovely! Wow! They go for so many classes. Luckily you said that you did let them watch half an hour of tv after they finished their revision. Otherwise, you sound like 'tiger' mum hehe. You know, my mum used to do that to me and I used to resent that. It makes me more rebellious. So just be careful ya..:)
