Today was just another ordinary day.
No, it turned out to be a very memorable one indeed.
The little one did a few things that surprised and delighted me.
At the playground, the hubs got her to climb up a rather difficult ladder. It is curved and the distance between each set of space is wide. The hubs got her to attempt once, guiding her through it. Before long, she could figure the concept. There were a lot of children at the playground and some children were eager to climb that ladder too. Faith waited patiently for her turn before attempting and once, there was a boy who wanted to descend, she actually gestured and told the boy to wait.
It was all very polite. But more importantly, I admired her courage to attempt the climb and her persistence in it.
She was the youngest in that group. Bravo, girl!
Back home, she surprised me again by telling us that she wanted to poo, to use the potty and after trying for a few minutes, the waste came out. It’s a first for me! I mean, having her poo in the potty. You see, I wasn’t that hung up about having her potty-trained. I believe that when she understands the concept and when she’s ready, she would be, well, ready for it. There’s no point in rushing to train her. But now, it seems she’s ready to take on this challenge and I’m so happy to witness her first poo in the potty. Hah! Simple joy!
In the evening, her skate-scooter was delivered, all thanks to the delivery man who came back again after I contacted him; we missed him when we went jogging earlier. And oh, I really had a very wonderful experience with Yamato Transport! Faith was obviously excited but I had to cut short that joy since it was time for her shower and subsequently, bed time. Told her to wait for tomorrow since we could get Grandpa and Auntie to play with her and she willingly obliged.
I’m praying that she will stay this way – that she will be patient and not insist on her way.
