Alone

I sometimes console myself that Deye’s boredom is the main reason of the many changes in her behavior.

There are no other kids to be found in the house. Oftentimes, she’s surrounded with just adults and toys.

Of course, I have thought of giving her a baby sister or brother to play with, but the situation here does not allow us to do that. Who wouldn’t want an addition to the family. But not too soon. Maybe later when everything else is stable.

That’s why we make sure that we take her out every week. But that also changes her moods. When she knows that we (me and my husband) are both in the house, she won’t take a nap, not even an hour. I think she feels that if she goes to sleep, she might wake up without us around. Or she’d miss going out. And once we’re out, she gets too excited in everything. She doesn’t like the idea of waiting. As soon as you put her shoes on, you’d better take her out in less than a minute or else she’ll drive you mad!

At this moment, there’s just one thing I want to believe in, that Deye has already reached this so called Terrible Two stage.

  1. toddler years is a rollercoaster ride for parents. it’s the year also where you will learn a lot about parenting.. esp patience hehe..

    who’s taking care of her nga pala while you’re at work? louna’s taken cared of by her yaya who’s taking care of 2 other kids and her son, so Louna’s not alone during the day.. and in fact, we want to enroll her in a daycare next february so she will meet more kids, she would learn how to interact with other kids, share, communicate.. socialize.

  2. Hahaha patience talaga eh no? San nakakabili ng extra nyan?

    Her nanny comes home from 8am-12nn everyday. My husbands comes home from work for his break (supposedly) past 12. She waits till hubby comes. Kaya yun mag-isa lang sya lagi sa bahay with adults.

    Dati siya mismo ang hinahatid sa yaya (yung una) but then we noticed that she often fall sick. We thought na baka nahahawa sa ibang bata kapag maysakit. Ganyan din kasi ang uso dito.

  3. mitch, kapag nag kindergarten yan she would be getting more sick — pero dont worry kasi it is the body’s way of adjusting and chance to create protective hormones daw, sabi ng pedia.
