So the taking off of his PJs continue, even though the weather has cooled slightly in the last 2x days.
This morning we found more than the PJs off – he even took off his diaper (pull-ups)!!! Smart kid – but the downside is … he peed on his bed! So mummy had to clean & wash.
We could not scold him cos he really didn’t know that he isn’t suppose to take off his diaper & pee on the bed – though after saying that, he does know that, :”Peepee goes in the toilet.”
Anyhow we have very very firmly told him that he is not to take off his diaper in bed again & that if he needs to pee & wants to do it in the potty, he should call us & WE will take off his diaper.
Hopefully, no more wet bed… at least till we start night-training.
So what has been happening at the Yoongz?
Well, we’ve been busy trying to tie down holiday plans with some friends – just going to the countries around switzerland – but still it takes so much work – have to look up car rentals – decide on whether or not to rent 1x big car or just 1x small car & we drive our little car. Then accomodation is a whole other ball game – sigh! Still some more work to go … hopefully all can be settled within this week.
The weather has also been hot hot – which for me is ok – but i think Tobi is feeling the heat a bit more – we have found him several times in his bed, asleep without his PJs on, only diapers. He goes to sleep with PJs on & when we check him before we go to bed, he is without them – sigh 🙂
This past weekend – we had great fun. It was Naomi’s 2nd Birthday Party (she has appeared in previous entries). There was a small party at the Bachmanns, small affair but it was nice & cozy. Our pastor & his wife even got to meet someone from their home country (NZ) & found out that they knew quite a few of the same people in NZ. Shows you how small the world can get – wasn’t there some theory about 6 degrees of separation? – something like everyone actually knows everyone else – just through 6x different people or something like that.
Here’s a photo of the cake blowing:
Tobias was hoping he could blow out the candles from where he was standing – he even puffed up his chest & blew – hehhehehee 😉
Then on Sunday after church, the Bachmanns invited us to go along with them & their family for a grill in the forest. This is something which Swiss people do lots of – or so i gather. They like to take a walk into the forest & have a small grill & enjoy the nature which surrounds them – something which we could never do in Singapore. One of the plus points of living here. Well, the spot they picked was by a small stream so the kids had lots of fun playing in the water.
Here’s a photo of Tobias & Daddy, Naomi & her grandfather by the stream:
So how has the potty training been going? Good!! i was really surprised. However, the 1st few days was really difficult – accidents everywhere – i nearly gave up. But on the 4th day, it all turned around & he started using the toilet regularly with only 1x or 2x accidents & then last Wednesday (5th July 2006), Tobias did it!! He had his 1st accident-free day – we were so very proud. & this was with a whole day outside as well, on top of that we had visitors from out of town to add to the excitement for the day. i was expecting to be able to write that we conclude our 1st accident-free week today but unfortunately, he pooed in his pants today – sigh! i was really upset but now am feeling better – an odd accident is to be expected so…
Now for some cute photos:
Here’s a photo of Tobias reading “newspaper” (he says they are newspaper but they are actually junk mail):
Here’s Daddy giving Tobias a ride around the horse:
Here’s Tobias & Daddy in our newly-setup hammock (Walter used his army-issued one):
It’s really so nice to have a hammock to sit in this nice warm weather.
Here’s Tobias with “chalk-face” (he was drawing with chalk on the terrace):
Here’s one of Tobias swimming in our neighbour’s little pool with their daughter Anastasia (Swiss-Russian):
Well, that’s it for now. Am so looking forward to more warm warm weather!
