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.
DD’s Amazon Kindle Fire
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.

Every parent’s desire is to see his/her child reach a milestone. And there are lots of milestones to look forward to. One of them is when the child learns how to go to the potty. That is just an awesome achievement. But we do not have to force the little ones to do it. We can teach them how and wait for them when they are ready. Potty training toddlers is not an easy task. It requires patience. But if you’re little tot is ready, potty training comes easy.
Well, my darling daughter is already potty trained. I was very happy that day when she asked me to take her to the bathroom because she wants to go. That was a “hurray” moment. Did that mean good-bye diapers already? No. Not yet for us at least for another year maybe? I still put a diaper on K at bedtime. My concern is bed wetting. There are nights that K pees while sleeping. So I don’t take chances of that to happen without her diaper on. Or else she will be soaking wet in the bed.
Thanks to Well Beginnings™ Diaper and wipes for the opportunity to try them on K. Not only the diapers are comfortable, they are very absorbent and leak-free. The wipes are soft and smooth on her skin. The wipes don’t leave any particles on K’s skin. I like that.
The Well Beginnings™ diapers fit just right on her and the snaps don’t hurt or poke her skin. The price is affordable and you can find these at Walgreens.
But how should I solve bed wetting problem? What I do is let K go before bed. And I don’t let her drink much water at night. These helps minimize the possibilities of bed wetting.
