He's doing okay

Photobucket

It's his 3rd day in school today. And he's doing fine. For the past 2 days, he knows it when I put the school uniform for him and he will sit quietly in the car and as we reach the kindy, he'll say "bye bye!" Then I will let him carry his own bag and walk into the sch holding my hands. And he knows the way...but most of the time he want to wonder off to somewhere else to check out things.

Yesterday, he was already waiting for me at the gate, playing by himself. The teacher told me that he slept in her arms for 1 hour! He wanted to go outside the class but the teacher refused to let him go out and so he cried and as she carried him, he fell asleep. hahahhaha probably he was sleepy and wanted to go sleep since it was his usual nap time at 10ish.

The teacher told me that he's okay. He will only cry when someone snatches his things or when he's sleepy. She commented that he likes to walk to the wall and read the alphabets! and then when she call him he'll go back to his seat. And she kept saying he's cute (although she jalan senget for carrying him in her arms for 1 hour).

We waited at the gate till the bell rang. Before that, J was like an exhibit. The boys kept looking at his Awi Train and the girls keep touching his face and call him "baby". So imagine how tiny he is compared to the other tiny kids. Hehe

When the bell rang, everyone shouted "YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and of course my little one did the same, not knowing what is happening. It was a funny sight. But soon he won't be excited about the bell ringing cos I wont be there to pick him up straight after school. He'll need to go to the daycare class where he will be bath, changed, eat lunch, sleep and play with his friends and not me. *sob*

I'm still sending him to his nanny house until its the right timing to switch him completely to daycare. I don't want to change his routine so drastically and scare him. Besides the name calling and preference towards the girl, he is okay, not harmed or anything. I saw him lying on her chest when I picked him up last night. Part of me wanted to tell her "Don't pretend to be so nice okay?" But of course I never say it la.....my son is still going to her place *wink*

My son pretended that he doesn't want to come out. So I told him "Bye!" and he cried. So I carried him and he used his finger to guide my chin to look at him and he winked at me, telling me that "Gotcha!". He was just faking his cry. See how mischievous he is?

Although I'm very tired physically and emotionally, I'm glad he's getting used to sch and he's happy about it. So, first stage-cleared. Now I gotto prepare him for the 2nd stage-daycare. So proly its sewing day for me tomorrow. Gotta sew him another Elmo pillow for him to bring to daycare.

  9. I missed so many posts already...Anyway, happy to hear that he's ok with the school and you can rest your mind a little.

    For me, the biggest headache when it comes to having a child is baby-sitting.

  11. hey...J is doing VERY WELL for not crying that long and wanted to go to school.

    I am confident he will be able to make it for the daycare. J is a brave and loving boy becoz he can sense the hardship his mother is going through...

  17. sasha, good to hear that jayden is doing well in school. for me, i had a bad experience getting qiqi adapt to school. maybe she couldnt see well, or because she is more timid since she is a girl.

  18. Hi Sasha, it sounds like Jayden feels more settled in the school and have lots of children to play and interact with. Don't worry, at this age, they do a lot of parallel play, i.e. they don't play with one another, but more alongside one another, it's perfectly normal. I am just wondering if there's any difference between the nanny's place and the daycare you mentioned? Is that nanny place not a home-based daycare? It sounds like Jayden didn't receive the warmth and care you wish he could receive, and that sort of loving environment is fairly important for a child and without that, he is never going to form a secure and trusting bond with the nanny. That aside, if you wish to shift him to the proper daycare, let Jayden know that he is going there, that he won't be seeing his nanny when he starts going to school n thereafter daycare, make sure you let him say goodbye to the nanny too and likewise for the nanny to say goodbye to him, though her level of care for him may have been questioned.
    That way, Jayden also gets to have a new start in a positive way.
    All the best!

  20. I think you can put him anywhere else and he'll feel much better than at the stupid babysitter's house.
    Good to hear that he's not cranky and all. You go boy. Big big now.

  25. hi, been reading your posts for a while and first time leaving a comment. i'm sure you got an earful that u're very patient with your babysitter already. i cannot imagine how your babysitter can be so prejudice over kids. when you do leave her for good, i hope you give her a piece of your mind too!

    and yes, as much as jayden is going through some changes lately, he seems to handle it pretty fast for his school. he is very brave!

    as for your tiredness and all, i can also relate as i'm at 14 weeks now with a 28 months old girl. my girl is not really as active as jayden but she does throw her tantrums now and then too. since i'm alone with her most of the times after work, i will just let her cry it out when she is in one of those moods. I got no choice, either that or pull all my hair out.

  26. Good for u to start J now on daycare. I made a mistake by starting Bryan after #2 is born.

    Luckily he adjusted well. He does great for half day but full day...still in progress. Hours are longer mah, so it takes more time.
