Inspirations to write this blog came from my forum friend with his entry titled
"Should We Really Be So Kiasu?" and his came from this original entry.
I reckon this is one of our main concerns esp when we are in a society which focuses so much on academic studies. I will not deny the fact that I am kiasu too. Like many others, I started many activities that involved learning including flashcards and bedtime stories with my son even before he turned one. I guess being a ex-preschool teacher aids my interests to "groom"my son helps. But frankly speaking, I did not remember anything I did with Isadore lasted for more than 6 months as there was ALWAYS something along the way which I thought it would suit him better.
Then when Isa turned 8 months, I moved back with my parents and stayed with them for abt 2 yrs due to my work. I would say I am very blessed as my mom is an enthusiastic grandmother who loves to teach her darling grandson. Thus up till todate, Isadore is a merticulous child who does his work consciously and he ALWAYS has a sharp eye for details.
Anyway after this long journey of teaching and learning and having this wonderful boy, I always remind myself of this:
Academic can wait, but character building cant.
I would say I feel glad esp reading the original post abt "What a four year old should know" as at the end of the day, I am very proud of my Isadore who actually knows and understand these:
So is your child the same too? :)

Here's more facts:
Up until now your baby has been measured from crown to rump but from this point on the measurement will be from crown to heel – and this week she is about 26cm long and is steadily gaining weight. A whitish coat of a slick, fatty substance called vernix caseosa begins to cover your baby, protecting her skin during its long immersion in amniotic fluid. It also eases birth. Your baby's swallowing more this week, good practice for her digestive system. After your baby takes in amniotic fluid, her body absorbs the water in the liquid and moves the rest into her large bowel. In her bowel, a sticky by-product of her digestive system, called meconium, accumulates. It'll appear in her first nappy after she's born.
