Every morning after I have dressed Ashley up for school, we would go downstairs where I would give her some water to drink. Then I’ll start preparing her breakfast which is usually bread with jam. Ashley will have her milk about half an hour later at the coffeeshop where we go to every morning before sending her to school.
I also prepare a snack for her to eat in school. It could be a piece of bread with jam, cereals like Fruit Loops or Honey stars or her favourite garlic bread/sausage bun from the bakery near my home . I put them in her pink container which I got from Daiso. Just the other day, one of her classmates celebrated his birthday in school and Ashley was given a piece of cake. She couldn’t finish the cake and brought it home in her container. Guess what? The chocolate cake which is full of cream spilled into her bag because she doesn’t know how to close the container properly. It is actually quite hard to close 🙁 I had to clean her bag thoroughly and wipe away all the cream from her bag *pulls hair*
When I went to buy Mamil Gold yesterday, they gave me a free lunch box. It is so cute and Ashley told me immediately that she wants to bring the lunch box to school this week. The lunch box is air-tight and most importantly, easy to close. It states on the brochure (or promotional banner) that the free lunch box promotion runs from 1 May until 31 May.
Since we are on the subject of milk powder, have you seen The Three Little Houses TV commercial by Mama Mil? Ashley enjoys this commercial very much and she kept playing it over and over again as it is entertaining. It features children wearing cut-out boxes depicting different houses and only one house is the strongest of all. She told me that the video is like the story of The Three Little Pigs. You know, the three little piggies who built 3 different types of houses hoping that the wolf would not be able to blow it down? In the end, the brick house is the strongest to withstand the wolf’s huffing and puffing, just like children who have strong immune system will be able to fight off germs, viruses and bacteria. Ashley said she wants to be strong like the boy in the brick house. She even told me to make her a brick house *shake head* Check out the video when you have the time. I am sure your little ones will enjoy it.
