It took them quite a while to get this prize I won in the Jones Soda – Lomography contest delivered but it finally came in the mail today. The Lomo POP9 … super-duper-plasticky 9 lens camera. 😀

Spent the evening guiding and helping Fitzand complete his DIY lantern ‘project’ which actually was due today but we overlooked it. Hahaha! So it was quite a rush for us to complete it and hand it over to the teachers tomorrow. I think they are having some moon cake festival thingie going on this Thursday and the kiddos are supposed to bring their own DIY lantern. Well the childcare supplied this lantern kit which we were supposed to cut, color and glue it together.

The kit came with 3 little tubs of colors and a brush, so after showing Fitzand how to use it … he took over the task of painting the outer sides of the lantern. I made very sure I didn’t help him paint it (apart from a little demo in the begining) because I wanted it to be his original work. At 2 years old, of course I don’t expect it to turn out like some masterpiece but it is always super cool to see what he can come out with.

It’s funny to see him concentrating on painting …

He decided to get creative …

Soon … painting was done and he was quickly brought into the bathroom for a shower. I dried the colors with a hair dryer and then later let Fitzand stick a few stickers on it and glued the pieces of cards together to form the final lantern.

And finally it was all ready for him to bring to class tomorrow. Phew! It sure ain’t easy being a dad. Hahaha. He finished his ‘school work’, drank his milk and went to bed … here is daddy … compiling the photos, uploading them and typing this blog entry with fuzzy eyeballs. Time to get some rest. Good night.

Oh … and for those wondering why I’ve not been posting any analogue photos for a while … I should be able to finish a roll of doubles with a Japanese friend in a day or two and also perhaps another 2 rolls in my other cams.
