What’s the magic word?

“Can I have some cake daddy?” asked my now almost 5 Little Missy.

As I’m still trying to inculcate my children with a habit of adding “please” into any requests, I looked at her and said, “What’s the magic word?”

She then looked at her daddy earnestly and said, “bibbidi-bobbidi-boo.” 🙂

(For those of you who didn’t get it, “bibbidi-bobbidi-boo” are the magic words Cinderella’s fairy godmother used to turn a pumpkin into a carriage, mice into horses, horses into horsemen and Cinderella’s rags into a beautiful gown. It’s from the old Disney Cinderella animated movie and my kids had just watched it at their grandparents’ over Chinese New Year. They loved it. Click here to watch Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo in action.)

Blessed Christmas!

Hi,

In mommyfied-Christmas-tradition, here’s a cute Veggie Tales youtube video to remind us what Christmas is…

Blessed Christmas everyone!

Blessed Christmas!

I should learn a lesson and just declare December a post-free month. A time of rest, reflection and fellowship with loved ones.

Anyhoo, it’s just TWO more days to Christmas and I could not, NOT wish you guys a wonderful, wonderful Christmas. Hmm…. I guess that just thrashed the December-post-free thingy… well, what-e-ver!

Here’s a video I like which celebrates the real meaning of Christmas, the birth of our Saviour on earth, Jesus.

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”– Luke 2:11-14

I wish you Jesus. Blessed Christmas everyone!

The Marshmallow Test

What does one do when one is stuck at home? Well this one here, i.e. moi, surfs the internet a little more than usual. When the kids are watching DVDs, of which they are doing more than usual as well. Sigh.

Anyway, found this rather amusing youtube video. Do take a look. Great comic relief.

P/S: Latest update, Hubby-jr has recovered from HFMD but Little Missy got infected a few days ago and so the house arrest has yet to be lifted. Two kids trapped at home. Huge sigh.

Babies, again.

No, no, no! Before you jump to any conclusions, no, I am NOT having another baby. I am, however, posting about babies. Again. Sorry (why am I apologizing?! I’ve no idea!) It is still one of Hubby-jr’s obsession. As such the topic has is brought up again and again. And again. And that folks, is why I’m writing another post on babies.

I’d like to think that this will be the last of it but I seriously doubt it. Hubby-jr curiosity about babies has not waned a single bit. On the contrary it seems to be growing. I showed him a photo album of his baby photos and he drove me bonkers with his endless questions!

One fine weekend hubby came in the line of fire questions instead. I must say hubby handled it wonderfully. He sought help.  (No, not from me, he’s smart enough to avoid a life threatening situation.) He went to the internet!

And he found some lovely gems. Really cute, kids friendly very short videos on babies, courtesy of HowStuffWorks. Click on the link below to check them out. To find the videos for a very young audience, you’ll have to scroll down the page until you see cartoony illustrations of babies.

If that’s too big a challenge for you, here’s a list of links to each of the kids friendly videos.

Not only did the videos save me from bonkersville, I found them very entertaining too. Thank you so much hubby!

When God Ran

Hubby and I are fans of the christian artistes, Phillips, Craig and Dean but somehow we missed their rendition of this song – When God Ran. It was not until just a few days ago when hubby stumbled on it on the internet that we heard it for the first time.

And. We. Just. LOVE. it!

It is a very powerful song of God’s faithfulness, grace and unfailing love even when we are unfaithful. The Father and the prodigal son from the son’s point of view. Watch the video below for a live performance.

You can find the lyrics to the song here.

Have a blessed week ahead.

Test Your Awareness

Here’s a little something to amuse you before I return posting my own stuff. Do the test! Don’t worry, it is nothing embarassing and it is highly entertaining. Enjoy.
