We went to a birthday brunch at the Park Inn the past weekend. Not A’s birthday but G, which is only 10 days apart from the little one. It was rainy and windy, but we made the best of it. I think.
G의 생일을 맞아 근처 호텔에 브런치 부페 고고. 의외로 요새 얌전하게 잘 앉아있고 뭐든지 잘 받아먹어서 비오고 우중충했는데 나름 주말 나들이를 즐기고 돌아온 느낌.
One of the best things of sending A to the Kita is that you get your free time and yes, they do really learn to socialize with others (I swear she learned how to use her cup from other kids and I think she’s also learning to use her spoon.) but one of the worst things is that you can’t really see what they are doing without you. I’m a pretty nosy person and I want to know how she’s doing with other kids, how other kids are acting around her, is she a difficult child, easy going and is she walking!?
조금 일찍이긴 하지만 유아원에 보내길 잘했다는 생각을 가끔 하긴 하는데 그 중 하나가 내가 모르는 사이에 새로운 스킬을 습득했을때. 컵을 제법 쓸 줄 알고 숟가락도 이제 제법 입안으로 쏙. 내가 자리를 떠나면 그 후 몇시간은 어떻게 지내는지 볼 수가 없어 답답하긴 하지만 데리러 갈때마다 얼마나 잤는지, 얼마나 먹었는지 등을 알려주는 선생님덕에 그래도 대충 그림이 잡히는 중이다. 다행히 (아직까지는!) 복잡하지 않고 어렵지 않은 아이 축에 속하는 듯. 꼬집고 때리고 할퀴는 아이면 어쩌지 은근히 걱정했는데…다행.
I went to pick her up a few days before and I caught her trying to get up this little ramp with stairs. We don’t have anything like it at home and I obviously don’t let her play too near the stairs, but the teacher told me she’s really good at climbing up, or walking up the stairs. She does two steps and then she comes back down. WHAT. I thought she couldn’t even walk by herself yet. I feel like I’m missing out on these little details, but then, you can’t really be there for every single moment, right?
According to her teachers, she’s not a very difficult child. Uncompleziert, which means not complicated. For now.
Hello, favorite gelato place in the world.
Oh and is it just her or do all kids throw things on the floor when they don’t want it. She knows exactly what she’s doing, throwing her spoon or fork on the floor. Sigh.
다음주면 첫돌! 파티 파티 고고!
- Walking! Five steps is her highest score.
- Throwing everything on the floor. On. Purpose.
- If you take away something she likes, she’ll scream bloody murder.
- Kind of communicating? She’ll answer in her own language if you ask a question. Like she knows that you’re asking a question and she knows the answer. Naturally.
