On Potty Training
This upset me the most.
I certainly could see the lack of patience from the teacher. I was very upset today after reading what her main teacher wrote down on the Connection Book. She is suggesting me to put her on diaper for the time being!
SHE IS ASKING ME TO MOVE BACKWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yesterday was bad. Really bad. The teacher never read what I have written down on the connection book. She wet herself due to the confusion created on Monday and the teacher didn’t bring her to pee before her nap. The worst part, they awaken her up during her nap and got her to pee. So in the end she didn’t sleep much in the afternoon resulted so tired at night.
Today is much better down with one or two accident. Now their classroom is much further away from the toilet, Yvette couldn’t hold for too long when she is urgent and need to pee immediately. I have reminded her the need to go to toilet and she doesn’t need diaper. (She is asking for it now! SEE!!!!!!)
Yvette on adapting the Change
So far she been doing well. Tantrums as usual in the morning. I hope once she got use to the new Teachers she would be fine. She did ask for me today according to the teacher. But she was calmed down after the teacher asking her to read book. I think reading book does bring good memory to Yvette with me!
The Morning Rush
Going to full day care, so far, has really helped Yvette to sleep early at night. She slept very early yesterday, at 9 plus. There was some struggle tonight but then I still manage to get her to sleep by 10.30 pm. Again I am amaze she could sleep without nursing for all the nap. She napped for 2 over hours in school today.
Since she slept early yesterday, I tried to wake her up at 7.35 am today. It still took me 15 mins to fully make her out of our bed. Waking her up got to be gentle, I always use stories or songs on our iPod to wake her up, so that she won’t be cranky.
(Point to note : Usually I will ask her and will never push for it, whether she wants to brush teeth in the morning when she is going to school, the answer will be No. Letting off some expectation in the morning, will definitely help to speed up but then I am going to get her brush her teeth in school. Her school encourages this.)
Since most of the time her mood is consider good in the morning, she wanted to do activity but this morning she gotten scolding from me because she accidentally poured some paint on the floor. Yesterday she did some pasting. I think for long run, this is not going to happen… where got time in the morning if I need to go to work. Unless she is up early…. hmmmm
Me on adapting the Change
After carrying her heavy bag for the past 3 days, I give up. This trolley bag is too much on me. What if it rains????
I decided to buy another one. I went interview at Orchard today and shopped around Robinson for the bag but much to my disappointment, Robinson does not carry much bag for girls!!! (Why Robinson? I want to use the voucher we have.) Where is all the Barney, Strawberry Short Cake, Dora???
With that, I decided to buy this bag when I first landed my eye with. Not because of the brand. This bag is light, big and with two side pocket for water. I like it. The problem now is to convince Yvette!
