Gugampoo-Local Magician in Kuwait

Just thought I’d write a post on the magician who we hired for my son’s birthday. There might be another parent who might want a magician for their kid’s party. His contact details are as follows;

Mobile – 99508029 and 97162090

Email – gugampoo@ymail.com OR zeemagic@gmail.com.

Apparently, he also has a website (did not check to see if it works..so I guess you will have to update me 🙂 ) – www.gugampoo.com

We hired him for a half an hour magic show as well as balloon twisting. So he brought in a clown who came in and twisted balloons for the children after the show.

Over all it was a good show…atleast the kids were happy, so that’s good.

You can call him for his rates and check on his availability.

Good Luck!

Another year…another birthday

11 march has come and gone. And so i have capped off another year full of fun, blessings, good times, homework, school trips, tantrums, laughs, and above all loads of fun with my now 6 year old.
Yea, my son turned six on 11 march. This year, we have toned down the celebrations, only because it was getting just a little too exhausting planning a kid’s bday. Don’t know about everyone else, but I just find the whole thing of making sure that ALL the kids have fun just a little too much!
This year we had a party at home with about 25 kids. The 5 older kids were the special helpers. They were incharge of the games stalls. Did I not mention that the theme was ‘carnival time’? There were 3 game stalls and the afternoon was finished off with a magic show and a visiting clown who twisted balloons for all the kids.
I managed to find a local magician- his name is Googampoo. He has reasonable pricing.
My son and the other kids really enjoyed!!!
So that’s that!
Another year, another party. 🙂
Until next year, that’s all about bdays!!

Would your child stand up to bullies?

Today,I read a topic that really made me to stop and think[here]. It’s an article that appeared in the Todaymom’s link on MSNBC about how would your child react when seeing another child being bullied.

It got me thinking about bullies in general. I have a son in year 1, who is frankly quite timid. While he is an extremely sweet little boy who truly and genuinely cares for another person and would not himself participate in bullying, I really do not know how he would react if someone bullies him or if he is in a situation where someone near him is being bullied.

Any insight from other moms in Kuwait on how serious is bullying is here in Kuwait schools? More specifically british schools in Kuwait?

appreciate if a teacher would also provide some input on their school’s policy on bullying.

Thanks
