First Post for 2017 (with the hope of writing more...)

I've been meaning to write a year end post before the new year comes but... again, busy WAHM life happened.

TOTAL Personality Development for Youngsters at La Vie: Table Manners and Etiquette

After skipping 2 Saturdays, McKenzie was able to attend another session of her TOTAL Personality Development for Youngsters at La Vie Institute yesterday.

We learned our lesson and we decided to leave at 1030am and ate lunch in Commercenter. We initially planned to eat at nearby McDonald's but it was raining so we had to stay in the building.

She ate first and I brought her to La Vie 5 minutes before 1pm.

However, in our haste to leave early, we left her binder at home. So, another item on our mental checklist for next week.

Kenny and I worked in one of the restaurants again.

I fetched her a few minutes after 3pm but she looked very happy.

We went to ATC after to buy stuff for today's dinner with our family to celebrate our birthdays and wedding anniversary.

We ate at the Food Court for dinner and McKenzie kept on telling us about what she learned about table manners and etiquette and was even asking us to apply them during our meal.

She is very happy about the new things that she learned. She seemed to remember a lot of good points!

I will try to squeeze more from her later, and update this post.

Dino Play, Now Open at The Mind Museum!

McKenzie loves dinosaurs among other things.

There is probably nothing more fascinating to young children more than dinosaurs. 

Why? Dinosaurs have not walked Earth for 65 million years now. So what’s so fascinating about them? Is it their size or imposing stature? Is it the way they move and eat? And while we’re at it, what makes dinosaurs, dinosaurs?

Welcome the latest change in McDonald’s—the new and improved Burger McDo

Young people nowadays want their most precious things, including their tried and tested products, to evolve with them—to grow as their taste and preferences mature over time. When they look for change, they don’t want something new, but improved; not different, just better.
