Good morning, everyone. Yay, it’s December. Oh wait…where did the days go? Our beloved planet Earth has almost completed it’s revolution around the sun. That means it is almost my darling daughter’s birthday again. She is turning 6, oh my. What a big milestone. Six years old, Kindergartner, and…she lost her baby tooth and a new permanent tooth already showed up. Amazing, isn’t it?
Of course the Tooth Fairy visited to pick up K’s tooth. K was waiting for the good fairy so she can meet her. But she was too sleepy to wait. The next morning, she was surprised to see a $5.00 (that’s big money, I know) under the pillow and the tooth wasn’t there anymore. Oh, a child’s happiness…
K wasn’t scared at all on the thought that she will actually lose a tooth and practically all of her baby teeth will go away and will be replaced by permanent ones. At first, she was worried and nervous because she didn’t know what to expect. When we found out that a bulge behind her bottom tooth was showing, I called for a dentist appointment. K’s dentist said that it’s the permanent tooth starting to come out. Because the baby tooth was still there, the new tooth is trying to push it’s way out. So not even two weeks from the discovery of the permanent tooth via x-ray at the dentist’s, K lost her first tooth during my PTO meeting at her school. Daddy and me comforted her to the maximum level so she won’t freak out because she saw a little blood on the fallen tooth. But everything was okay. I have a BRAVE child. 🙂
How time flies so fast. My daughter is growing fast everyday and I am getting older. That’s why I try to do my best not to miss every single precious moment. Precious times which I will not trade for the world.
Happy December. Enjoy the cold weather season. Christmas is here before you know it. Have fun with family and friends.
While I am tapping the keyboard of my laptop doing some online duties such as browsing mom blog pages, Pinterest boards, and Instagram photos, my daughter was just sitting on the couch playing with her learning game apps on her new Amazon Kindle Fire. I bought the gadget few months ago in replacement to the previous tab that was broken within a month of purchase when she accidentally dropped it on the floor. The screen cracked and there’s now way I can fix it without paying over $80 for screen replacement. So I decided to buy a new one.
My friend recommended the Amazon Kindle Fire. But she said I have to buy one with the 8 gigabytes of storage because the basic applications and software alone consumes the half of it. I am happy that my darling daughter is enjoying her new gadget. The gadget is solid and durable. Once you get familiar with the settings and navigation, it’s easy to manipulate.
My darling daughter only uses it whenever she is relaxing after dinner and, sometimes but not frequently, before bedtime. During the day, I only let her use it for an hour because she has other activities to do like working on her pre-K (pre-Kindergarten) activity book, playing outside, biking, and going to town with me on errands days. There isn’t much applications in the Kindle Fire besides a few toddler game apps.
Right now, she is reading – yes my daughter is a beginner reader already – a book from Children’s Beginner Readers Kindle Edition.
Below are the story books I downloaded to her Kindle Fire. They’re free on Amazon.
My husband and I were so disappointed and embarrassed today. Our darling daughter didn’t cooperate when it was time to take our portraits at the photography studio this afternoon. I set this appointment to have our family portraits taken because the prints will arrive in about two weeks. Then we still have time to have our greeting cards for the Holidays. But we had to cancel because, all of a sudden, our daughter had tantrums. She didn’t want to go to the photo room. And worse, she was crying all of a sudden. We were all dressed up, looking great and then we had to leave because she didn’t compose herself. She’s feeling fine. We told her about today’s schedule last night. Now our weekend was ruined. Time wasted. Her daddy was very upset that he let her think about what she did all afternoon.
Then this evening at bedtime I asked why she was crying at the studio. She said she wanted to go to the playground. Well, I told her already that I will take her to the playground after the photo shoot and lunch. She just wanted to get what she wants right there and then. Well, she has to learn how to wait and be patient. We have things scheduled and we have to get them done first before we can go have some leisure time. She apologized to her daddy and me before going to bed.
I don’t know if we can still have the time to get our portraits taken next weekend. We will be busy traveling for Thanksgiving Day.
