Goodbye 2010....Hello 2011!!!
Its already Monday time flies....
A Happy New Year to all. How's your new year so far??
Mine's been a busy, topsy turvy, anxious, tiring New Year. Maybe too worried and excited for Diyanah's preparation for Primary School. I believe that all parents want to give the best for their agree? There are so many new things for me to learn and absorb too, believe it or not?? heee.... This is the transition period for Diyanah, from kindergarten to a new environment, she's very excited, but, i'm very worried!! Me and hubby attended workshops at Diyanah's school(which i find very helpful and informative)  and i've yet to discover more......

OK!! Now that my mind's partially cleared, its time for me to 'show-off' my

Calendar 2011
i see circles....lots and lots of circles this year....
i was born on the 4th July...heee...
Diyanah was born 11 September.....

The hardest part of raising a child is teaching them to ride bicycles. A shaky child on a bicycle for the first time needs both support and freedom. The realization that this is what the child will always need can hit hard...
