No context, will not make sense to her when learning Characters without stories or context.
I got to read to her more often, but I don't have the time nor energy.

Found our old App.... it is pure gold, except that it is still rather painful to learn because got to search word by word, stroke by stroke but now I've discovered to search with Hanyu Pingying which is easier for me.... after 45 mins of learning new words, we learnt to write and memorize three short phrases. Thankful for great progress!
To reinforce new learning, got to repeat these phrases tonight and then 3 days afterwards and lastly 3 weeks afterwards. But I don't have that kind of energy..... cos got to go and learn the above sets of words for Monday's test! I have no time because Friday's company dinner, Saturday is violin, Sunday is swimming but still got to squeeze in any time that we could find, bearing in mind to save some energy for learning.

This morning. One roach was in the bathroom.
Me to Bren: Baby, can you help me with something?
Me: (took a glance at the roach) Oh never mind, it ran into my room.
Bren: (sprang into action, took care of it)
