Nyla has already blogged about this event over at her blog.
It's mommy's turn now.
The only downside to Nyla blogging is my entry always seemed second best one.
The first time this happened was when I wanted to blog about our great time at Tanjong Pinang last December.
The moment Nyla heard that I had expressed interest in blogging about Tanjong Pinang, she immediately sat down, wrote the entry in her blogging book and asked me to help select the pictures with her.
It took her less than an hour to get that entry published since her rantings are short and sharp!
Ok so as you already know, we had a story telling session over at Woodlands Regional Library last Saturday in conjunction with the Asian Children's Festival.
Last year, I was also a 'participant' during the Asian Children's Festival by sharing with the other mommies and daddies how I use New Media to interact with Nyla at the "Be a New Media Parent" workshop.
This year, it was a much easier task for me since I had my 2 sidekicks, Nyla and Haryani.
And Nyla is wearing my vest.
Initially I was wearing a white top with that vest she was wearing.
She got jealous because according to her I looked prettier.
I asked what would make her happy. Her reply "You give that vest to me la. I'm so plain."
So I sacrificed because I didn't want Nyla to sabo me during the storytelling session.
During our farewell, Nyla was a lil clingy to Haryani. She hugged her once, bade goodbye and then ran to Haryani again for a second hug. "Aunty Haryani is so comfortable!" Nyla told me. Real sweet!
while my babester, Haryani lead a sing along session.
And then both Haryani and myself would unleash our little audience's powerful imagination together by asking them to help us write the ending of our fractured fairy tale titled, "Sleeping Doggy"
Can you spot Nyla? She decided to 'resign' from her duty and join the audience in writing the ending of "The Sleeping Doggy."
I am all for 'involved' parents! Gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling!

Focus Nyla Focus! Tsk Tsk!
Parents and children unite to try and come up with the most creative ending because we told them we would have a 'gift-away'. :)
