美美你过得好吗?

我每天接美美都会问她 今天过得好吗?她都会说好。也不知道她听懂了没有。

今天老师好高兴地跟我说美美进步越来越大了,今天终于开口说话了,说了Hi, bye,而且今天还smile 了。我马上说那太好了。其实心里像被捏了一下,难道美美在幼儿园之前都没有说过话吗(美美平时在路上碰到陌生人都会day hi and bye),都没有笑过吗。每天幼儿园的report都写着她happy and active,她也每天都回答我说过得好。可原来她不敢(或者不想)讲话,也不笑。有点心疼,但也为她高兴,proud of her,这么难的事情她都做到了。加油宝宝!

Good morning Sunday!

这个周末牛放“春”假,全家一起到附近山上放个小假。

现在是礼拜天早上八点半,奶奶和爸爸带着美美去吃餐厅早饭了。我晒着太阳面对着下图的景色喝着早咖啡。四周好安静,除了偶尔雪发出咯吱咯吱的声音。此时此刻。随心所欲地走神,实在太美好。

Terrible two?

我们给美美买了个小凳子 她开始喜欢在自己的小桌子前吃饭。昨天晚饭时候,她就不好好吃一直爬来爬去玩,不肯吃饭要吃零食。我们不让,她就开始狂哭。我和奶奶互相鼓励说一定不能妥协,让她以为哭就能解决问题。于是美美坚持不懈的哭了四十分钟。。。哭得一抽一抽滴要抱要吃零食。我一直跟她讲道理说美美吃饭时间你不吃饭就什么都不能吃。直到我说那我们不吃了去读书好了,把她抱坐在我腿上,翻书讲故事给她,她才安静下来,奶奶在一旁开始慢慢喂她吃饭,她大口大口地吃,还时不时指着书上叫鸭鸭(好像什么事都没发生过一样)。

我和牛事后讨论,也许美美是哭累了饿了,也许只是一直在等着一个台阶下(爱面子是天生的啊。以后要想办法不要跟她硬碰硬。

香煎小饼

鱼肉,胡萝卜,小白菜,蘑菇 (都切成小丁,胡萝卜小白菜和蘑菇都过水煮一下,鱼肉用盐和蒜粉抓一抓)

First day daycare/17mon

Again quotes from Zen habits:

https://zenhabits.net/shaken/

“You lethargic, waiting upon me,
waiting for the fire and I
attendant upon you, shaken by your beauty

Shaken by your beauty
Shaken.”

~William Carlos Williams

Typically articles on ZB blog are very practical. This one is not. It starts with a poem and reads like a song and ends up with a picture in my head.

Today is Meimei’s first official day in daycare. She had two days for test drive before today. She did amazing on the past two days that no crying at drop-off, happy hanging out with teachers, eating well, and napping well (except a little incidence she was beaten on the chin by another kid :(). Of course most of these are based on reports from the teacher. I was relieved while surprised (too good to be true, isn’t it!). It seems nothing else I could ever ask for for her first daycare experience.

Today when I sent her lunch and was peeking outside the window. It is different than I imagined. She looked puzzled, confused, and not playing with teacher and other kids, and looks like she is thinking something. Her uncertain face expression reminded me when I first time left home and went to college all by myself. I was lonely and afraid and not sure what was coming. Now Meimei is only 17 month. She has been such a brave girl exploring this world.

One the first day of daycare, Meimei, mama wants to tell you: It is okay to cry anytime; it is okay not to be an “expected” girl; just slow down and take your time. We are all here with you. Love you.
