We eventually got down to taking all 4 kids to the renovated Fidgets. The older two could actually tell me the changes that were made to the place! As you can see from the above picture, getting there early has its advantages. For a long time, we had the whole place to ourselves! We also could choose the best place to station ourselves: somewhere next to the toddlers' play area, with cushioned seats for the younger two to nap on, enough table space to let everyone eat at lunch time plus plenty of room for Joshua to do his marking.
Joash quickly found friends to play with when the crowd started to come in. The three boys had a blast playing bumper cars, with Jaide being caught in the middle. Don't you think the below picture reminds you of the typical yakuza scenario whereby the victim is surrounded by circling vehicles ridden by gangsters? LOL The boys were actually very considerate of Jaide while they played and made sure not to knock into her. I was suitably impressed. Do check out the video for a glimpse of their fun.
Learning from the previous experience of not being able to bring in the pram, I went prepared with a comforter for Joram to sleep on. So nice and cosy for him. Zzzz.... As for Joshua, he made pretty good progress with his work that day.
Joram was too used to having toys hanging over him to play with at home and so he seemed rather discontent with simply lying on his back when he wasn't sleeping. I thank God for the idea of using the keychains from the kids' bags as a substitute. Joram was then happily batting away at the dangling ornaments.
Jaide took quite a long time to settle down for her nap as the place was so fun that she couldn't bear to sleep. However, I'm utterly grateful for a quiet corner where I could put her to bed successfully in the end. Look at her totally-knocked-out sleeping posture. Hilarious!
