Olive’s dreams were realised last night when she played in her very first fake snow.

Olivisms

Olive: Daddy, will Mummy get new boobies for Christmas again? Daddy: Again? Did she get new boobies for Christmas before? Olive: Yes. Daddy: Well, I guess I could buy her some new boobies, yes. What are boobies, Olive? Olive: We wear them on our nipples. Olive: Daddy, I wish I could live in Grandpa’s house. [...]

Olive’s finger … update

We took Olive back for a second check-up a week after the accident and the doctor said he wasn’t sure about the ‘viability of her fingertip’! Evidently the tip is not as pink as he had hoped for and he’s concerned that the whole fingertip may fall off. Obviously that’s the worst case scenario but [...]

wonky pinky

The telephone call I always dread: “Phil, come home now. You need to take XXX to hospital.” It’s Leo who balances on window sills, hangs off table edges and sleeps in the oven but amazingly this time it was Olive who took a tumble. In a freak cooking accident, Olive toppled from a chair while [...]

Too much energy …

Do you almost faint every time you open your utilities bill? We do. We’re paying S$400 (GBP200) a month for electricity and water. That seems way to high. Unless the neighbours are secretly hooked up to our juice then we’re doing something wrong. Sandy eventually contacted the Public Utilities Board and they sent a guy [...]

dog sitting

We’re dog sitting Lucy, a friend’s 10-year-old spaniel, for two weeks. She’s taken to sleeping with Olive, which is a little unhygienic. I wouldn’t want her infected with lice from the kids.

families of mass destruction

This morning, while putting Olive’s shoes in the shoe rack at her daycare centre, I noticed that the neighboring shoe ‘pigeonhole’ belonged to a Trident Tan or Trident Lim. Now, I know Olive and Leo are unusual names, but to name your child after a deadly submarine-launching ballistic missile is really quite freaky. ‘Hello, have [...]

like father, like son

Not only does Leo look like Phil, he’s even wearing Phil’s old t-shirts. Below are photos of Phil and Leo wearing the exact same t-shirt 40 years apart. Phil is 2 and living in Papua New Guinea, Leo is 16 months old and living in Singapore.

Mr Bump

Olive pointed out a Sikh gurdwara from her vantage point on the upper deck of bus 196 as she travelled to Esplanade to watch The Nutcracker ballet with Sandy. “Who are those men, Mummy?” “They are Sikh men, they wear turbans on their head,” explained Sandy. “Oh, they are sick,” said Olive. “I think they [...]

Childhood crush

Olive and Leo spent the afternoon playing hide-and-seek with 10-year-old neighbour Jia Wei today. Olive and Jia Wei would hide and little Leo had to find them, which he always managed to do. Leo is so short he can see under the table and cot without crouching down. When it came time for Jia Wei [...]

Resurrecting the blog

The Tatham family blog is back by popular demand. Well, not that popular. Only granny from England said she wanted to see some photos of the kids! This probably will become a photo blog, not that it was ever anything more, as I have no time to write anything and I’ve stopped bringing my laptop [...]

it walks!

Hooray! Leo has taken his first steps one week before his first birthday. And he’s sleeping through the night. Tonight he’s in with Olive. Three cheers for the little man with the large head.

pancake day

Olive and Phil celebrated Shrove Tuesday with mini chocolate pancakes. Olive cracked the eggs and whisked the ingredients, Phil flipped the pancakes. Leo, who is now crawling, made a beeline for Olive’s pancake and had to be wrestled to the floor. Olive emerges victorious and covered in chocolate.

I opened today’s Straits Times to see a photo of my son, Leo, endorsing products for Cold Storage. Admittedly he does use some of the products he was pushing — such as Pampers and Kodomo — but I’ve repeatedly warned him not to sell out like other celebrities endorsing products and to concentrate on his acting [...]

scary mummy

Olive: Leo is a … [thinks hard] … triceratops. Daddy: Really? What’s Olive? Olive: I am a … [thinks hard] … diplodocus. Daddy: What am I? Olive: You are a … [thinks hard] … stegosaurus. Daddy: What’s Mummy? Olive (without hesitation): Oh, Mummy is a T-Rex!

Olivisms

#1 We force Olive to finish her fruit before she has any ‘fun’ food. Olive (offering Sandy a pretend cake): Mummy, would you like to have some cake? Sandy: Yes, please. Olive (withdrawing pretend cake): Then you must eat your strawberries first. #2 Biscuits are a luxury. Sandy (watching Olive eat a packet of raisins): [...]

Christmas in KL

A belated Merry Christmas to all. This year we celebrated Christmas with Sandy’s family up in Kuala Lumpur and avoided the whole turkey palaver by going out for Christmas lunch. Stick-in-the-mud traditionalist Phil still insisted on ordering a Christmas turkey platter with all the trimmings, while everybody else wisely chose pasta or all-day breakfast. (“Hey, [...]

An almost perfect evening: singing Christmas carols with the kids at Fort Canning Park over a picnic dinner of baguettes and duck liver paté. (A bottle of wine and it would have been perfect.)
