It's been a long way from kindy

I did not even remember that I started an account on this forum when my son started kindy. I have just discovered that I actually set up a blog and posted one entry about how he started kindy year. The school actually did an assessment of all kindy starters and provided a report. And the report showed ZERO academic ability for my son! Others were way ahead of him by a mile.   It had not been easy for a kid who had so much fun to adapt to school life where rigid rules were imposed. Soon he found

Preparation for OC test

This blog entry is dedicated to help parents who wish to help their kids do the NSW Opportunity Class test. The OC environment offers students who are strong in academic ability to get more suitable education and realise their full potential. This is a bonus on top of whatever else they normally do as school kids. In this blog entry, I intend to share what I do to help my child achieve high academic performance while not denying him a great childhood. It's all about achieving a balance for a chi

Putting Happiness to Flight

As schools withdraw from the project of imparting knowledge, they turn to promoting mental health as their mission. The result is a preoccupation with identity, difference and well-being.   In a recent article, “We Shouldn’t Teach Children about Mental Health”, Charlotte Gill argues that it is not the role of schools to treat mental and emotional disorders, and their attempt to do so is harmful. Their methods are simple-minded; they make a virtue of self-absorption, with the result that healthy

Wild Bees

<p><p>Wild bees   Wild bees   When all is said and done, how do we not know but that our own unreason may be better than another’s truth? for it has been warmed on our hearths and in our souls, and is ready for the wild bees of truth to hive in it, and make their sweet honey. Come into the world again, wild bees, wild bees!   Hannah Kent has taken these lines from Celtic Twilight, Yeats’s “handful of dreams”, as an epigraph for her recently published novel The Good People (Pan Macmil

They told me, Heraclitus, they told me you were dead

They told me, Heraclitus, they told me you were dead . . .   Lament for the loss of history   Susan Jacoby, author of The Age of American Unreason, among many other books, calls herself a cultural conservationist. It’s an idea whose time has come.   Of course, this is what schools were intended to do, to pass on our cultural heritage to the next generation. This is their brief. Knowledge is cumulative, each generation adding to and correcting the understanding of its forebears. Without this vast

Good news, everybody

Bubble is fine! I just had my 1st ultrasound. Everything is exactly where it should be. I saw a teensy heartbeat for about 2 seconds, then the trainee sonographer (is that the right word?) moved on too quickly. It was a bit anti-climactic, as I was expecting the big moment of emotion when we saw the heartbeat for the first time, but in reality it was kinda like "where is it? Hurry up, I really need to pee..." In hindsight, I wish I'd asked to see the heartbeat again before leaving. Hubby said he

Are we there yet?

We have our first ultrasound on Friday, and I'm nervous as hell. What if they can't find a heartbeat? What if there are two (or more) heartbeats? What if it's an ectopic and we have to say goodbye to Bubble? Is this what the whole pregnancy will be like, constantly being worried about what will happen? Is this what parenthood will be like?!   Too many questions. Too many hormones. Horrid amounts of nausea. It's not a good mix. I can't believe people do this more than once! As much as I'm genuin

I feel, therefore I am

<p>I feel, therefore I am   Not so many generations ago, you could have written Sentio, ergo sum and been confident that most readers would have understood it as a play on Descartes’ famous Cogito, ergo sum — “I think, therefore I am”. Since then we have lost not only basic Latin as common knowledge, but also our familiarity with the seminal ideas of the Enlightenment.   “I feel, therefore I am” is the title of a chapter in Richard King’s cogently argued book On Offence: The Politics of In

Well, this sucks.

DH and I have had our baby names picked out since way before we were married or even considering having kids. We particularly love the girls name we chose as it is classic (as in not a weird or made-up name), but not common. Or so we thought.   I just found out that this name (that neither of us have ever met someone with), is suddenly in the top 40 most popular baby girl names in Australia. We're so disappointed. We really didn't want our child to have a name that dozens of other girls have (I

It's real!

I saw my GP today. The hour wait was worth it, as she was brilliant. Very thorough and took her time explaining everything clearly. She was excited for me, too. I am so glad I chose her!   I felt indescribable relief at hearing that everything is progressing perfectly. I finally feel like I can let myself get excited about this. My only issue is low blood pressure, which puts me at risk of fainting. But I can live with that. On the way home I was so happy that I cried in the car the whole way. I

Excitifying.

Every morning when I wake up, my first thought is some variation of "Woohoo, I'm pregnant!".   Then when I go to the bathroom and there's no blood, my thought is "Thank god, I'm still pregnant".   This has to be the most concurrently exciting and terrifying thing I've ever done.

I'm so dizzy, my head is spinning...

Today I told my small team at work. They were supportive about it, but said they're not surprised. Can I just get one "OMG" reaction please?! Well, aside from my bestie who kind of has to act excited for me because it's her job?   Oh, and my entire family thinks it's a girl. Naturally, I want it to be a boy just so I can get a surprised reaction for once!   I kind of want to go for a walk, but everytime I've walked more than a few feet today I've gotten really light-headed. I've had some mild na

Possibly irrational angry pregnant rage

So apparently the new neighbours (who share a wall with our bedroom) think it's a good idea to have an anxious dog in a small apartment that howls and yelps whenever they go out. Last night they went out and boy did it howl. All. Night. Long.   I had 3 hours sleep last night. I've alternated today between being a zombie, wanting to cry, and feeling so full of indescribable rage that I start to feel nausea and tummy cramps and I have to calm myself down for Bubble's sake. While I'm aware that my

From suspecting I was pregnant, to now. What a weird week.

Last Tuesday I noticed that food tasted kind of different. Not bad, just less satisfying somehow. DH decided it must be a sign that I'm pregnant, because there's no way I could feel that way about his "amazing" burgers. He joked about being a "one shot stud", since we'd only tried for a baby once so far. I told him it would probably take ages due to our age.   On Wednesday I noticed that my boobs were kind of hurting. A bit too early for my period, which was due on Sunday. I decided to see if th
