I can still remember Yui’s early days when she would just sleep sleep and sleep all day long. Ooohhh, those were the days. Now, my baby is very much a toddler. It’s really hard to put her to sleep during naptime. She’s even down to only 1 nap a day. It would take us more than an hour of tossing, turning and tumbling before she can finally doze off. It’s even more difficult during weekends. Since daddy and mommy are at home, she’ll turn into her weekend mode and would just love to play play play! Daddy even had “the talk” with her to no avail….With this look, would you even think that daddy’s serious? (^_^)
I grew up with a mom who would always nag us to brush our teeth. As I became older, I learned to appreciate all her nagging since every time I visit the dentist he would say that I have good teeth. I didn’t experience any nightmare visits with the dentist and I also became paranoid with having good teeth. I guess it is because of this that I wanted my daughter to have good teeth as well. So when she turned 1 year old, I also nagged daddy bunny for us to bring her to the dentist already. It’s never too early to start taking care of one’s teeth right?
I searched for a pediatric dentist near us and found out about Dra. Claudette Raymundo of Tooth Kingdom in SM The Block. So I booked an appointment with her and wasn’t disappointed. The clinic has a lot of toys and Yui wasn’t bored while waiting for the dentist. She even kept on peeking inside to see what is going on. Dra. Claudette was good at handling Yui and very friendly. Our visit was quick but she was able to clean Yui’s teeth, apply the flouride to make her teeth stronger, provide tips and even gave Yui a “prize” for being so “cooperative”. Even if I wasn’t able to use my health card, I would still bring Yui there since the clinic is very accessible and we found Dra. Claudette very good. And I would also recommend her to my friends.
I rode one of those hellish MRT rides coming to work this morning which, once again, made me want to quit my job. I kept thinking if all this stress is worth it. If working in my current company is actually worth rubbing elbows/shoulders/back/behind with sweaty commuters. What if I just quit and find work somewhere near our house? Will it make my life easier? Or maybe this is a sign for me to finally go after my life-long dream…
After 1 year, 1 month and 25 days, I finally was able to create this site as the official place to document my life as a mother and share my experiences, trials and happy moments. My firstborn is 13 months already so I missed to document some of her first year milestones here. They’re all in a journal which contains letters to Yui though so she will just read those when she’s all grown up.
Pardon the look and feel as the site is still under construction. 🙂
