I subbed in the Pre-K class on Wednesday and I got this treat from one of the pupils. So sweet.
And since there’s no school on Friday, darling daughter’s class will be exchanging Valentine’s Thursday. So, while I was buying a few groceries at Walmart that day, I went ahead and grabbed a few Valentine’s Day goodies to share with her class. That day was also the Tribe Store and K’s wellness checkup day. I got to sign her out early off school also.
I had a hectic schedule today. I had three commitments/appointments today–doctor’s appointment, Tribe Store volunteering at darling daughter’s school, and yearly wellness checkup for K.
Since I already finished the 10-day dose of the prescribed medication, I took the earliest appointment I can get with my doctor. As you know, I had the severe case of contact dermatitis occurred more than two weeks ago to the point a small part of my left neck got infected. It looked hideous. I had to cover my neck with scarves or wear a turtleneck top and high-collared jackets every time I go out or go to work. It was uncomfortably itchy, especially at night. Anyway, I finally decided to get my doctor’s advice and that’s when she prescribed antibiotics. Today was a follow-up checkup after the medication period. Everything looked okay and healed. Special creams for scars and itchiness had been prescribed again to help with the healing process.
Tribe Store Volunteering
I didn’t take any substitute teaching assignment today for the reason that I already volunteered to help at the Tribe Store at darling daughter’s school. If I remember it right, this is the second year the school hold the Tribe Store. It was a huge success last school year. The first items sold out were the drinks and snacks. ‘Learned a lesson. This year, they stocked the drinks and snacks really well. 🙂 There are educational and entertaining toys, school supplies, recreational items, and accessories available for purchase.
You must be wondering how this Tribe Store work? The students earn tribe tickets for showing good behavior in or outside the classroom. They also earn these tickets by showing the Traits of a Brave throughout the school and working hard on their assignments with focus and diligence. They will be given a tally sheet to record the tickets they received and at a certain time when the Tribe Store date is near, the students are given the opportunity to compute for the total amount of the tickets gathered. Then they will be sent to the Tribe Store according to the designated time by class to shop for the items that interest them. It’s really fun watching the students budget their points and shopping wisely. 🙂 One student happen to complain that some items seemed to be overpriced. Haha!
Gladly, I was able to sign out my darling daughter for the day after the Tribe Store duty around noon. We headed home and ate lunch first before driving to town to see her pediatrician for her yearly wellness checkup. I was told by the doctor from the last wellness checkup that K will be getting two vaccines today. She sure did. She was a little scared at first, but calmed down after I held her hand. It didn’t even take a minute, and the shots were administered quickly. Now her upper left arm is starting to feel sore, she said. The next shots, boosters, will be given when she’s 16 years old.
Darling daughter is growing healthy and developing very well. Thank goodness, she hasn’t fallen ill these last couple of years. Her last nosebleed was two months ago when I forgot to run the humidifier one evening. That was it. I am doing my best to diligently run the humidifier every night, especially during cold season. We’re doing a great job so far. I think she’s outgrowing the nosebleed thing soon.
Hello everyone! How have you been doing lately? Are you staying healthy? That’s good to hear. I am glad that you all are able to keep your cool in these times, especially, the school is out and the children are home. 🙂 It is quite difficult for some of us parents, but with understanding and helping hands, we can survive.
Days pass by so fast. It is June already. Can you believe it? Have you been to the home store recently? Believe it or not, there are Christmas decorations on display already. I was super shocked for a little while. Though Christmas season is my favorite time of the year, still I couldn’t comprehend why stores are putting out Holiday decorations this early. *sigh*
Now it makes me feel that I need to create a list of Christmas gifts. Well, I like doing that, for sure. My darling daughter and are good partners when it comes to Christmas shopping–in store or online. One of the nicest things we thought to give as Christmas presents this year is kids’ pajamas. Every child loves to own a pair of soft, cozy pajamas, especially in the wintertime. You can’t go wrong with that. Wearing those snug and comfy family matching Christmas pajamas while opening the presents on Christmas Day is quite a sight, don’t you think?
