My Gaokao Essay
My wechat moment has been flooded with all kinds of funny scripts on the topic of the college admission essay of Guangdong province since the first day of Gaokao on 7th June. Examinees were asked to make a composition according to a cartoon-- pupil X won a kiss when he got a score of 100 in one exam, and pupil Y was punished by a slap on the face with a score of 55; and in the second exam, poor X got a slap on the face because he scored 98, while Y won a kiss because he achieved a score ...

The rich internal world of a toddler
One can never imagine how big and complicated the internal world of a three-year-old child is. Yesterday afternoon I went to pick up Nicole from her daycare center. These days I have tried to be there a little bit earlier than before because of the jet lag after a long flight in this new year season. Her teacher, Sandra, asked her help with the tidying up first. Then Nicole went for toilet and hands washing. After all these being done, Sandra took her to me hand by hand, and ...

Nicole’s Philosophy
One time when we were watching her favorite cartoon series of the ‘smart tiger’ on my iPad (maybe actually hers in the little mind), the screen suddenly became black because of running out of battery. Then she turned to me, ‘Mama?’ I told her her that the device was out of battery and need to be recharged soon (I was so happy at this indeed). And I further suggested that maybe we could do something else like building castles etc.. Obviously she was unsatisfying at my re ...

Share Your kids will show you what creativity is
Judy_Zhu 2015-9-24 19:07
When watching Nicole playing her favorite colorful cartoon zoo animals board puzzles, I suddenly got shocked by a fact: I’m already a person without too much creativity, while I tried to influence her from all aspects in our life via my way of thinking. It’s a terrible finding to me, but how fortunate I am that I realized it-- better late than never. Yesterday it was a mid-week break for both of us, no school and no work, though it was not a nice day, windy and cloudy. As her b ...

Which one to choose, paracetamol or ibuprofen?
Nicole has suffered from two times of consecutive flu virus infection since the beginning of this February. Therefore she has been stayed with me and didn’t go to her daycare. The first time infection resulted in a series of symptoms including vomiting, diarrhea, a mild fever in the daytime, and a higher body temperature at night. All these signs showed to me that she was having a gastric flu and I simply gave her relevant medical care at home. She was given Perentero ...

What scar do you have?
If you are asked about the question what scar do you have, you would be probably reminded of some really dumb story behind it. When I was in grade two I poked my hand with a pencil to see how sharp it was, and then I had a small black mark in my left hand. It has faded over the years. But there is still a light grey mark I'm afraid. Nicole also got a bloody lesson of playing with a pencil sharpener yesterday. I’m afraid there would be a scar on her forefinger tip, in her left hand. ...

Arguments on toddlers’ crotchless pants
A pair of crotchless pants that have a split in the crotch for Chinese toddlers has become a contentious issue in the United States since last month. It was reported that some onlookers in Monterey Park, California seeing the boy with his little butts exposed were so shocked and an American woman reported the run-in to the local police. When police arrived and learned that the pants are mainly to enable the kid to do his business easier and faster, the police couldn’t just believe what ...

A good supply of sponges
We housewives of the neighbourhood often gather together, and talk about the little kids playing around. The recent concern of us is constant spilling of kids, like Giovanna’s complaint the other day, “ lately my girl has decided it as a great fun to spill her drinks intentionally. I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry. ” Her girl is only one month older than ours, and I’m now also headache about the similar experiments by Nicole. As I’ve noticed, there a ...

My life with blog in 2014
I've been thinking about writing an article to summarize my life in the passing year 2014 and I saw the topic popping out yesterday. What a wonderful coincidence! I've been a forum member of China Daily for years but only started my blogging since last December, which was actually advised by my husband. I spent about twenty-five years in school, as a student and as a research officer later on. I have little knowledge of jobs from other industries. But if you were ...

Nicole’s adaptation to a new daycare
My hubby has recently invited me for discussions several times. It seems to him that he has been ignored somehow by me for a long time. And as a mom as well as a wife and a used-to-be research partner of him, I was suggested have a careful review of our current living state. He wished that I could make some change to re-balance the condition. This man always makes complaints in his typical humorous way. Maybe it’s time for me to think about returning to w ...
