Flash In A Pan?

I hope not.

Well, Raimie asked me to allow him iron his school uniform last week. Yup, he initated it. OK, so I did mention a few times before, how I used to iron my own clothes, wash pailful of clothes yada yada when I was at his age. *guilty*
I guess he just got curious and wanted to show me he can do it too. ;p

He told me he wants to iron them again this weekend. We'll see whether he'll still be interested doing it. hehehe

    1. I must switch on the fan on the fastest speed whenever I do ironing. Cannot stand the heat and if possible I want a special chair with the appropriate height to sit on!

      Delete
    2. I use ironing session as a workout session also. Can do a bit stretching, and stand w legs apart n stuff. :-D

      Dunmore I also sweat a lot. Panas. Free sauna. No need to go for sauna or steam bath to sweat out all toxin. Kekeke

  13. Lina, anak2 I 11yo & 9yo are ironing their own uniforms now. Elok jugak takde live-in maid nak 2 tahun dah ni, somehow they are more 'willing' to chip in and help around the house. It takes a lot off my shoulders :)
    I hope Raimie iron baju dia lagi weekend ni hehe

    1. It's good for them to learn a bit abt responsibility kan? :)

      I hope he does too, this weekend! :)

  14. Your boy is so good as he's willing to try ironing. Well, I don't do ironing anymore since I stopped teaching. Now my kids will iron their own school uniform.

    ReplyDelete
  15. So pro-active Raimie was, ironing his own uniforms... Good exposure indeed, me myself was forced to wash and kapur my own school shoes at Raimie's age... But not ironing chores, thank goodness... Hehee...

    I started ironing my clothes when i was studying at the boarding school at the age of 13... Muahahaa... Simply iron neatly at the front, cincai2 at the back one... Sloppy me.. Raimie deserved 1000x LIKE from me.., =D He's learning to be an independant boy... Sejuk perut kak lina.. Hahaa

  16. That is so good that you actually LET him! Parents these days rather do it until the kids goes off to college

    1. It does takes patience to show our kids how to do chores but better start them young than late
      right? :)
      Ethan does chores now?

  17. instead of ironing, why not ask him to try cook for you? :P

    so he can become good cooker / chef hahah :X *kidding*

    1. I didn't ask him to do lah... he volunteered.

      Anyway, he helped me in the kitchen plenty of time already. No biggie.

      Delete
    2. cool! haha u should be happy XD I dun help my mum do laundry :P

      Delete
    3. Chores are meant to be shared.

      If he doesn't do anything, I'll feel like I failed to bring up a responsible and compassionate child. That's all.

      But of course, different people have different opinion. Right? :)
