List and things

Excited to be visiting here more often.

It’s weekend time and with Christmas right around the corner …teehee there is sure to be many things to be done.

My kiddies have written and re-written their Christmas wish list. And boy are those lists long! I keep having to remind them that there is no guarantee that they would even get one of the items on their list. My crew don’t really believe in Santa Clause cause they know that we the parents/grandparents and aunties buy all the presents but that doesn’t stop me from reminding them to be good or else they would get coal wrapped as a gift. (Nevermind I would not know where I would find coal in Jamaica LOL)

We are looking forward to this this weekend. It is usually a delightful mix of cultures and colours. I enjoy having the children taste the different foods and snacks.

Last weekend was such a busy weekend for us that I didn’t get a chance to say hello to you from here.

The girls turned three 😀

Yup my babies are babies no longer.

So our days were filled with balloons, and cake and bouncing- about , cotton candy and ice-cream  and way too much sugar. Everyone was immensely happy!

are you getting the rainbow theme?

And then we pulled out a BBQ grill that was never opened and had a fun time barbequeing.

And here we are looking at another weekend.

This weekend has been renamed study zone because exam week continues next week for our household with Big Daughter doing her Grade 3 diagnostics on Tuesday and Wednesday.

But during our breaks we are going to consider

Step by Step’s Musical production 2 Sides to Every story is tomorrow – Saturday, June 9, 2012 at 4pm

This promises to be a real treat so be sure to check it out.


The Anancy Festival  a celebration of Caribbean cultural heritage and designed with particular appeal to children and teenagers curious about the Caribbean also happens tomorrow!

Anancy (or Anansi) is the West African trickster hero of numerous folk tales that are popular across the Caribbean, indeed popular throughout the African Diaspora. This clever and conniving character is familiar to millions of people around the world and an appropriate icon for the festival’s blend of Caribbean culture on a platform geared for children and adolescents.

Admission: Free

From 2pm – 6pm  at the Kingston and St. Andrew Parish Library, 2 Tom Redcam Drive, Kingston 3.

Love Anansi so would love to take children to it.

and of course if you just want to keep it easy there is Story time at Bookophilia from 11am – 12pm.

What ever you are doing this weekend. Do hope it is fun filled and of course KIDFRIENDLY!

Happy Weekend.

Where did this week go!

Well I am sure I am not the only one who is looking forward to the ease of the weekend.

Though ours will be filled with words of spelling and meanings.

So what  is there to do this KidFriendly Ja weekend?

1. Jamaica Defence Force Air Wing Open Day at JDF Up Camp looks like fun. From 9am. Admission Free

2. Children’s Story Time at Bookophilia- the book being read is “Flowers for Mami Unicorn”

3. Shakti in honour of International Yoga Month presents Free Yoga at the Sunken Gardens in Hope Gardens. From 9am- 12 noon. A great way to introduce yoga to the children. What do you think.

4. Or if you think you need a drive out but not one too far how about Tea or a fruit drink at Strawberry Hills. Perfect for just soaking up the view.

Whatever you do this weekend do make sure to enjoy it and be sure to make it Kid Friendly
