Splashing Time

It’s been our practice to let Sarah play in her water pool during weekend once in every two weeks. All this while, she’s playing alone; maybe due to this, she will easily get bored and get up from the water soon enough.

But last Sunday was just not the same…my neighbour’s daughter had join in!

At first Sarah felt excited when she saw “jie jie” (sister) walk towards our house and straight jumped into the pool. The jie jie really had a great splashing time, she enjoyed swimming and spattering inside; but our little girl just watching her doing all the acts and sitting there with her toys.

Then the next thing I know, the crying started (inevitable). The jie jie snatched the toys from her hands and take it out from the pool…

But after a while, Sarah was able to calm down; as time passed she felt more comfortable playing with the girl and even learned to swim from her. At least I could hear some laughter from her, finally.

Cynthia said...

Kids are like that.. but once they get started and comfy with each other, they sure laugh and play.. :D At least staying at home due to H1N1 also, she got some entertainment

Merryn said...

great for Sarah to socialise...

Mummy Gwen said...

Oh..Sarah got a friend to join her in the pool..that's great she is opening up to the girl. :) Joanne, it's time to have a sibling for Sarah already. ;)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Rachel:
Ya, she needs to gel with more ppl.

Merryn:
Why not ask your neighbours kids play together with Ethan, I am sure they have some fun too!

Cynthia:
Yea, I think kids are more easier to mingle with each other compared to adults. Sometimes we adults will feel shy shy, hehe.
Sometimes really feel pity her staying indoor all the time, so once she knows that she could play water, she will be very very happy.

Mery:
Actually you may get this pool at some supermarket, it is selling at quite a cheap price. Then, Ryan can have some fun!

Hehehe..Sarah got a new friend. Thats good for her then. She can learn to be friends, playing together.

From the pic, can see that she feel uncomfortable with jie jie but slowly she can

Tina also love to be friends but I think that she still in developing time for her friendship senses..but I am happy she learn from surrounding.

This is a good activity Joanne..keep it up

Blessed mum said...

wenn said...

hi, fun time for the girls..

slavemom said...

It takes time for Sarah to warm up to jie jie. Can ask jie jie to come play more often. Then Sarah will hv a playmate.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Slavemom:
Ya, she really took some time in the "warm up" session.
When I asked Sarah if I asked jie jie to come again, she nodded her head. Hehe.

Blessed Mum:
Ai yo Michelle. Now I think back of the time I wake up in the midnight and feed her every 2 hours, I fainted!

Serene:
Sarah really felt more happy playing with jiejie than me. Hehe.
Why not, I am sure Xixi will like playing in her private swimming pool:-)

Ummi:
When kids played with water, they will always like that...cry or showed temper and do not want to leave the pool, same goes to Sarah.

Sha:
Yeap, now the "sister" is her best fren. Always has to go to playground together and even hold hands..Hehe.
I think Tina is more brave in making frens. Good job to her too!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Mommy Gwen:
Actually Sarah has been going to the playground with the jie jie, so she is not strange to her. But that was the first time the jie jie came to her house, that's why she needs time to "warm up". Hehe.
As I told Michelle, I really phobia with the time that to take care of a lil baby:-)

Steph said...

cKylie:
Yeap, water definitely the best "toy" for kiddos.

Steph:
Thanks for dropping by again.
I wonder how could I view your blog?

Ann said...

Glad she found someone to share and enjoy the pool with! The other kid is so much bigger....more daring!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Ann:
Yeap, at least she do not feel bored playing alone.
The jie jie is 4 YO and she is really really very daring.

Fussy mum said...

The gals had so much fun! You should let them do this more often.

BoeyJoey said...

Jie jie so naughty one, bully Sarah meimei... At least they enjoy themselves :-)

2ma said...

we did the same for the boys recently, but since the pool we bought is really big, we usually dun fill up lots of water :(

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

2ma:
Yeap, filling up water into the pool really consumed a lot of time. So sometimes I also curi ayam by just filling little bit of water. Hehe.

BoeyJoey:
Sarah was little upset when she knew that the toys was being snatched by the jiejie, but luckily she enjoyed the play time with her later.

Ivy:
Yeap, will definitely let them have fun in splashing more often. Infact, this weekend I will be doing it again. :-)
