Before the Holidays went full blast, we all got down, boogied and celebrated DW’s 3rd birthday with his classmates. DW is with the 2s and 3s class at Books and Blocks. I can’t believe this little guy is three! He was just a wee babe yesterday huhu.
Pre-School – This year is a big one for DW (and for us too). This was the year that DW started pre-school. He goes to school everyday for three hours with nap time and snack time in between and it has been very good for DW. He’s come home with a lot of projects and he’s picked up so much from his lessons. We love Books and Blocks because the classes are small and the teachers are really nice. In his class, DW has two teachers and an “ate”. We also love the newsletters the school sends every quarter with pictures and stories of the major activities the kids have done.
We also love that DW is with other kids. Having adults around him 24/7 has made DW a little manong. He really speaks like an adult with matching “yata” and “diba?!” at the end of of his sentences.
Example: Mama, Ferris Wheel yata yan! (while pointing to a Ferris Wheel). He wants me to confeerm so that he can then say, “I want to ride the Ferris Wheel!”
He’s also learning how to share, take turns, play with other kids and just be around other people!
Potty Training – The little dude is not yet fully trained but we are getting there. We are almost ok with the peepee it’s the poopoo that we need to work on. DW only says poopoo when he’s done the deed already! He doesn’t like sitting on the potty because he gets bored. Do you know what he does now while sitting on the throne?! He flosses his teeth! haha 😀
Teeth Brushing and Dentist – Brushing his teeth by himself and a visit to the dentist – the dude has been brushing his teeth by himself since last year but this year was the first time we made a trip to the dentist. He was brave and did not cry at the chair even when the dentist was poking around his mouth and gave him a good cleaning! The dentist said that she did so much with DW with just the 1st visit. DW went home with a Good Patient Sticker and a free toothbrush hehe 😀 I’ll post more about our visit soon.
For his birthday, DW celebrated with his classmates. I ordered Devil’s food cake from Chocolate Kiss in blue icing and lola cooked spaghetti, cheese sticks, bbq and chicken wings. DW had a lot of fun (and a lot of gifts!). All the kids knew that it was DW’s party and so when we came everyone was excited. I loved it. I was so happy seeing DW celebrate with his friends. I was so proud of DW. I was thisclose to crying I tell you but I had to suck it up. I might scare the kids and I still had pictures to take 😛
Happy Birthday dear DW. You are awesome. When you’re all grown up and you get all cringe-y with my kisses and hugs in public, let me just say for the record that you are the cutest, the sweetest, the silliest and the funniest! We love you sooooo much! MWAH! MWAH! MWAH!
