Janine’s First Day of Preschool

After Janine’s third birthday, I’ve never posted anything on what she is actually doing at three. Actually, she’s been doing fine for the past 4 months. She’s a lot more active and naughtier and talkative as well. She got new friends and more are still coming because today is Janine’s first day of preschool. Yepeyyy!!!!

Just like other moms, I’m also quite nervous about this thing. I don’t know how she will interact with her first teacher and her classmates (and new group of friends). Actually, there are more negative thoughts in my mind right now rather than positive ones, why? because 2 weeks ago, when Janine and I had a practice class at home, at first she was really responsive to the questions I asked her but after 4 - 5 minutes of practice class, she’d just randomly answer the questions without even thinking it.Sometimes she will give you a frowning face if you keep repeating yourself and she will then refuse to answer you. Now tell me, is this something that I shouldn’t worry about?

Anyway, I believe her teacher can handle my lil chinky girl. As a matter of fact, her teacher was my preschool teacher before, so at least that gives me a peace of mind. My father will escort Janine when going to school and going back home because I just can’t make it because of my work schedule, even JB can’t make it... Poor little girl, but I guess she’ll be fine.

Her first star award.

My Threenager Girl

Look at you now my lil chinky. You’re so big, smart and sweet but most of the time you’re a spoiled brat and you love making mess in our simple abode. I always go insane whenever your throw your tantrums  here and there but I will always hug and kiss you whenever you feel bad.

Three years ago, I was amazed by your sweet and tiny face and I cannot forget my favorite smell - the smell of your tiny little feet (too bad  it doesn't smell like that now!). 

Three years later, I can still see your beautiful chinky eyes and  they always look beautiful to me. I loved the way how you sing your first version of ABC song because you can’t properly sing the “LMNOP” part and you even insist that WXYZ is “diamond X Y Z”.

I love how you  pretend that you can read books like you’re the best reader you could imagine because honestly, you sound like an alien talking in an alien-language (and it’s really cute and funny).

I’m always impressed that you can now identify different colors and shapes but it looks like you are not that interested with letters and numbers because “W” is your only friend and sometimes you skip some numbers when you count.  I’m so proud that you no longer pee in your pants, except when you’re being scolded badly and when you sleep during cold nights.

Sometimes, it frustrates me to get you dressed when we go out because sometimes, you pick the most horrible outfit and it takes me couple of minutes to convince you that it isn't a good pick. There are times that you sleep in the most funny position and you still do that (you’re such a joker). You always say to me that you’re a big girl already and that you want to go to school and meet other children ( I hope you continue that eagerness baby.)

YES you are indeed a big girl now but you are also my lil chinky. I wished that you continue to be sweet to us and  may you have a good health always and be a good girl to everyone. I love you my baby girl.
