MHA organised a visit to the central fire station so I went with Sophia, notwithstanding having been there not long ago. Sophia had just as much fun this time, though the explanations by experienced firemen, which made the experience much better, was too boring for her and she kept walking away.
Went to Central Fire Station with Sophia last weekend. I think she enjoyed it, although vehicles that are “Hot Hot!!!” are a no-no for the little girl. The opportunity to “drive” a fire engine is great experience for the children. Love how they could quickly get everyone off the vehicles, close the doors and rush off to an emergency.
I think Sophia has trouble understanding this one. Too many abstract components. And she was afraid of the monkey for some reason. I thought she was too engrossed that she didn’t move or make a peep, until I noticed that she was covering her eyes with her hands.
Only photos of the set before the show started:
This weekend Sophia was down with a tummy upset (“tummy egg” to her – hope that doesn’t put her off eggs in the future!) So when she continued sleeping past the time to head to church, I allowed her to till we missed the start of the service. SO I decided to stay with her at Sunday school since she was unwell and extra clingy anyway.
Happily I learnt a few more children’s bible songs since I know woefully few of those. It was also Samantha’s birthday and we had fun eating chicken nuggets and mango roll cake. I like that people at this church are so down to earth. No 3-tier ridiculously professional-looking fondant cake and truffle oil this-and-that. Sophia had fun and of course all the children were happy to bring home a balloon.
Story and worksheet time seemed extra short that day, perhaps because of the birthday celebration and soon it was time for freeplay! Sophia was the mad scientist that day:
After that I brought her to the basement of Forum where allegedly the Playclub bears and Toybox are performing and art and craft activities are going on. However, when we arrived, we discovered that Toybox was only playing at noon and Playclub bears only at 2pm! Sophia kept pointing at the bears and saying “wait for these to come out”. They never did before we went home because she was getting way too tired. And at the Toybox performance too many tall parents were blocking her view so it wasn’t much fun for her.
I do hope Sophia will recover from diarrhea soon so that she can enjoy all the things that children enjoy again.
