I still remember vibrantly the day i gave birth to my kids. And now they are respectively 5yo lil girl and soon to be 3yo old boy. Where all the time goes? Im getting old and they grew up faster than i cant imagine.
At 5yo, Hazel is pretty good to handle. Its just that she is now learning to read. She can’t read at the moment except for few easy words that may be she encounters everyday at school. Last month i’ve been so hard toward her because it took so long for her to spell a word. Im so frustrated and scold her and she cried. I let her sober on her own. I wanted to console her but my mummy’s instinct telling me not to. So i just sitting next to her and she continue coloring instead.
And now its been a month since that incident. She still cant read well. But she spell the words faster than before. I need to invent a fun way to help her to read. After school, i ask her what did she learnt at school and she tell me that they did coloring and doing some paper work. Huh. No wonder. Hm..
Okay i need to be extra hardworking mummy. No more excuse!
Oh ya one thing she now can differentiate between Bahasa Melayu and English. Less mixing of them in one sentence. 😂
Then lets move to my second born, Luke. Finallllyyy, he is now fully weaned off!!! Yay! The journey to wean him off took 2 weeks. With countless cry and tantrum.
What did i do to make him stop? I rubbed an eucalyptus oil on my nipple. Everytime he demands to latch, i show him the oil and keep telling him it was spicy. The euclyptus oil was my best friend for 2 weeks, i bring it everywhere as a ‘weapon’.
Now i can claims my 7 hours sleep without interuption. Yay for that! And he sleep on his own now.
Now that he is wean off, i heard so many new words from him plus he pronounces some words perfectly too! And more complete sentences nowadays i.e ” mami, adik sakit perut’ , “mami adik penat”
That all i think i can write right now.
See you next post.
