Lesson learnt.

The next time when I start earning money, save as much as I can. 

Life is too short to feel sad, so SMILE! :)

1st day potty training with L.A

Today, we started training potty. Today is the first day. After her afternoon nap ended up approximately at 4pm, I told L.A that we are taking off the diaper, and introduced her to the potty. I told her to let me know if she wants to pee or poop.

In the beginning, she was very excited and was  playing with the potty. She thought it was another new toy. I let her sat at the potty for a few times; just to be sure she is comfortable sitting in it.

Every half an hour, I will take out the pant, and explain to her on why I was doing it. I placed her in the potty. After trying out for few times, I realized that she is not comfortable with the potty. She preferred to release the pee and poop in the toilet instead.

So, with that understanding in mind, I brought her to the toilet every half an hour. To my amazement, each time when we visited the toilet, she actually peed. To encourage her achievement, I clapped, praised and celebrate her successes with positive words of reinforcement, and tons of hugs and kisses.

She had mini accidents though. I called it mini accidents because the quantity of the pee was so little that I don't need to clean up the floor. I just replaced her pant with a new one.

When hubby returned home, I told him everything. From the look of his face, I knew he is so proud of you, L.A.

Dee, mummy and daddy is so proud of you, tonight.

Sigh, what can I say for today, I had a bad day. I tried to be as positive as I can until I see L.A slept. 
Today, one of my dogs did not listen to my instruction, he barked many times although I said no. I was left frustrated. I did punished him, but that left me feeling guilty.
So, this is not a win win situation. It is the other way around.

In the past, I have learnt how to get things done in a smart way, not in the hard way.
"Work smart, not work hard"
Till now, I am still thinking about ways on how to put it into practice when it comes to handling daily challenges.

Though my Thursday is not as fun as other days, I wish you had a good one. 

Good night, people.

Which path?

Am I in dilemma? I am weighing the pros and cons, once again.
There is a part of me that wants to do this but I have a lot of concerns.
Another part of me thinks I should be doing the other thing.

Confirmed the registration for KAAK course.

A while ago, I just confirmed my registration for KAAK course in SEGI college. The course is expected to start on Nov 2011 and ends in March 2012. As I will be taking care of L.A on full-time basis, I have decided to attend the course on part-time basis; that will be on every Saturday, plus Wed/Fri of that particular week.

If you ask me, what is my feeling about my enrollment? Well, mummy is excited, L.A :)

This will be the first step for me to be educated in the area of childcare. 

My source of motivation comes from the dream that I have > to start a happy home for children that provides quality childcare, and because quality comes with a higher price (these days), I am determined to challenge myself to do what I can on the charging fees without compromise the service quality.

This is my dream.


4th October 2011: 
I had a wonderful time with L.A at home. I am grateful because we have First Year Child Booster, I managed to kept L.A busy with meal, and blocks while I took out sometimes to vacuum and mop the floor. Today, I also made fried noodle for DH, he complimented on the food. He said it was yummy. I guess, it is true what the expert said, practice make things perfect. The last four words that I just wrote reminded me on one of the challenges that is still in my list. Though, there are times, I miss my working life...but when I cook and get to spend time with L.A all the time, I realized that I don't miss them that much (the work), but still, I miss hanging out with my ex-colleagues.

How to be happy with less

Last night, after L.A finished watching some of her Barney videos, I browsed through Youtube's video and I saw this video from How Cast: "How to be happy with Less". I thought it is interesting look from another perspective. I hope, after you watch the video, you will be more happy. 

You'll need:

  • Acceptance
  • Frugality
  • Happy thoughts
  • Enjoyable experience & 
  • Environmentalism

  • True happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you got.
  • The more you buy into the idea that more money you make happy, the less happy you will be. 
  • As long as the bills are paid, there is not much difference between the poor and the rich.
  • Think about happy thoughts.
  • Think about ways to save money than spending it 
  • Focus on things you can use than stuff you can buy.
  • Experience brings more pleasure than possession.
  • According to research, buying something doesn't make us as happy as we think we will, or for as long as we assume, it will.

Thanks How Cast!

I write when I am upset.

For multiple reasons, I was a bit upset today. 
I went to the fridge and took that ice-cream and ate it. I asked myself, was it due to stress that I seem to be enjoying eating this?
I finished the big scoop of ice-cream, and started doing the chores to kill those calories.

Today, I see L.A was very happy. I am  glad that I can be there to watch her grow, and do all sort of things with her. When I see her beside me, I know that this is the best thing that we can provide for her.
