Dindin can have some kulit moments. Sometimes they are funny, but when I am cranky, they can also get to my nerves. Whenever these things happen, I just take a deep breath, smile and try to play with her with whatever she is doing. I encouraged her to experiment and discover that is why even though I feel like shouting, I join her. hehe
One afternoon I took a short nap because I was really sleepy. This is not the first time. I would do this while Dindin is watching a video just so I could some shut-eye. But this afternoon, when I woke up, I saw that she had torn some sheets of paper into tiny pieces, like confetti! I almost lost my cool there! But instead, I just took a photo and asked Dindin to help me pick them all up and she did.
One afternoon again, I was working in my computer for sometime before I took notice of Dindin. I just realized that the room grew quiet and it was because Dindin was already doodling. She had taken interest on a small calendar. But because it was small, her writing went out of the paper and was extended on the bed sheet. Apparently it was not her fault because the paper was just too small… I just had to tell her not to do it again. sigh…
Obviously, Dindin likes playing with confetti very much. She prefers them over candies when the pinata is opened. Anyway, we just opened a gift from a friend and Dindin tore the wrapper into tiny bits.
On another afternoon, I gave her a bottle and she happily lied down with it. So I went back to my computer. The room would be very quiet if Dindin is latched to her bottle but I thought that the room was very quiet for too long. When I turned around, Dindin was already sitting down with her back to me and it seems that she was doing something. When I went over to her, this is what she was doing.
I have always put lotion on Dindin’s legs because her skin is very dry and scaly. But that afternoon, she took it upon herself to put on more lotion–the Vaseline hand lotion that I have in my purse. She rummaged through my bag, took out the contents (notice the wallet, hand sanitizer and face powder?), and emptied the contents of my lotion on her leg. Well, that made her skin really soft and supple! LOL
