Teaching My Kid to Socialize

Having a 1st grader is not all about school and no play at all. It is also important to have a well-balanced life even for a kid who’s 6 years of age.

I make it a point that my daughter still enjoys playing and having time to socialize with her classmates and friends. 

When she was a little younger, she used to be so shy. She usually got nervous when surrounded with a lot of people. She’s usually shy when performing on stage. Most of the time, she wasn’t able to perform at all due to this shyness. But that was 3 years ago. When she was still in Nursery Level.

Last weekend, it was her classmate’s 7th birthday party and she was invited along with some of their classmates. I was hesitant at first in allowing her to attend. First, because I have some unfinished work that day. Second, because I am not sure if I’ll be able to accompany her or not. 

But then I decided to allow her to join the party and to accompany her too.

Every laughing moment of my daughter was so precious for me.

Good thing I decided to let her go. She gets to socialize with her classmates and friends.

And honestly, I also enjoyed the party along with other moms that accompanied their kids at the party. :)

A happy, fun-filled bonding time with my daughter is not a wasted time at all!

Mikyla's First Dental Visit

It was one sunny Saturday when I decided that I would bring my daughter to a dentist for a tooth extraction.

On the way to the dentist, I was praying and hoping that my daughter won’t get traumatized after the extraction. For I know she have a very low pain tolerance. That the pain of injecting some medicine is just one of the worse feeling one could ever experience. 

The Dentist and I tried our very best to convince her to open her mouth, and she did the first time.

But after this photo below, we weren’t able to convince her. She felt the pain of the first injection on her gums. And she doesn’t want to open up her mouth. 

The good thing that time was, her tooth was loose enough that it’s enough to put a topical anesthesia and the dentist just pull it off her gums with less pain and blood..
