Her Idea

Faith tooth got extracted last Friday. It was her idea to have her damaged tooth removed. She said she can’t take a day to have it extracted. Before we went out to the dentist, I told her about what will happen when we are already there. I even told her that the injection for the anesthesia is a bit painful but that is for helping her to endure the pain of extraction. She seemed understand but then when she saw the injection she got a little freaked out. I have to explain again that if she would quit we will go to back step 1 and her damaged tooth will not be removed. I told her to just be there the whole time, she got calmed. And finally the dentist was able to pull off the damaged tooth. I thought Faith will get a little drowsy but then she got hyper after the tooth got extracted. The dentist hugged her tight for being so brave. She got an ice cream for a reward.

Memorizing Multiplication Table

Faith is memorizing multiplication table recently and we are so serious about it. The first 30 minutes everything is so smooth but later on, it gets harsh because she kept on forgetting, I already tried to help her but she kept on forgetting. The last time we had the Multiplication table memorize was from 2 to 7. I don’t want her to use her fingers to check for the answer, I want her to do it on her mind and that’s what we are practicing for a while now. But she can’t avoid it, she something doing it with her finger. But Faith even though she’s an ADHD, she listened. I always told her that what we are doing is for her own good. We continued and then right after we had a mock quiz. The real struggle starts there since I do it not in chronological order, she got lost again.

We went back to memorize what we stopped a while ago then went to mock quiz again. She is trying it hard and finally she was able to answer it all.

Her Dad knows the struggle; he recommended a game for Faith to answer. It is fun and innovative. We used it once and yeah Faith had fun, she does it easily because the answers are there, you’ll just have to drag it. We were doing it also after the mock quiz.

Yesterday, we were not able to do it because she only got her tooth extracted. Yeah our appointment was yesterday and I could be so much prouder because she was able to cope up her fear of having her damaged tooth extracted.

Walking Around The Village

I needed to fetch Faith early today so we can attend her Kumon but then when I got to school, they’re not done yet. The teacher told me that they are having a small birthday party. One of her classmates is celebrating her 9th birthday. We waited there for a long while since the snacks did not come yet. And I was sure we will not be able to get to her Kumon on time then I realized also that I wasn’t able to bring the Kumon worksheets. So it would be a waste of effort if we still go there.

I promised Faith that I will be walking her around the village before memorizing the Multiplication table. So when we arrived home, Faith changed her clothes right away then we walk around the village. She had a great time though especially when we dropped by at our friend’s house.

She had a blast today but right after she cried because of the Multiplication table. I asked her to memorize them but she tends to forget what number is next. We are still up to 6 though and I was planning for her to master the Multiplication table at least next month.

Birthday Greetings For Our Dear Friend

I guess I already mentioned it here that we attended a birthday party last Saturday. My friend who happens to be the mother of the celebrant is my friend when Mj was still in a swim team. I didn’t expect though that they would still invite us and to be part of this memorable celebration of her daughter who celebrated her 16th birthday party last Saturday.

The theme was Coachella and I didn’t know a thing about the theme. So I just let Mj decides what to wear on that day besides she was the only one who have a participation in the party. Yes she was one of the treasures.

We decided to buy the celebrant a bag; it was a denim bag actually. Mj need to speech but she just said “I hope you would remember with this bag”. I tried to help her with her speech but she said she can do it. Good job Mj!

On the other hand, Aleks happy 16th birthday. I know you’re  a good daughter to your parents just continue being one. Enjoy being young, which means to say study first, reach goal and everything will follow.
