Compromise

It's the mid-year exam week for Raimie this week!

Anyway, he asked us to get him a few more bottles of colours for his art&craft home projects. We got them, but put a condition to it.
We bought more revision books for him to do and he got a set of Buncho poster colours. He wants acrylic paint, but we'll splurge on those once he shows that he can do well in his exams.

Drawing, colouring and arts&crafts after studies, OK Son?

And oh yeah, about that handphone - we'll talk about it later. Say, when you are 18? kekeke

  16. But I didn't promise any rewards *stingy mode*

    1. So far, we encourage him to do what he likes. But also "encourage" him to do what he doesn't i.e. study. ;p

    1. I got that B&W phone at the age of 22! Big Nokia phone with Digi coverage. No coverage whenever I went back to my hometown! LOL

      Infants also nowadays know how to play with iPhone since their parents allow them to play with it.

    1. dabble dabble only. I like it too when I was small, but unlike my son, my parents weren't encouraging about it. Arts & crafts stuff are not cheap, especially for kampung folks like us.

      So when my son shows interest, I support leh. Since I didn't have that support when I was small. ^^
