Tests were done which all turned out normal. So nothing to worry about.
The Twerp will be going to pre-school this June. Yay! I'm so excited. She's attending summer school now, her second time. Next year, she will start in the big school. I haven't yet decided where, but out of all the schools I've been considering, I've narrowed it down to two. Those two are very different from each other and one will require us to move. I'm putting off choosing for later. Let's see how she does in pre-school.
While searching for suitable schools for Via, I can't help fast-forwarding to college. Maybe other mothers do this as well. So thoughts about gmat prep and other tests she will need to get into a good university are also in my mind as well. I find everything so competitive these days. I've heard of some pre-schoolers getting tutored in Mandarin because their parents want them to attend Chinese schools.
So like I said, I've been looking at universities for when she goes to college. I'm just having fun looking, comparing fees and programs but I want her to go to college abroad actually, like her Daddy. Just in case she gets an opportunity to study abroad, we need something like Veritas Prep to help her get ready.
So, I went with Via on the first day of summer school. I stayed the whole time to watch how she would behave and participate because she was the youngest in the class. Well, I should have no worries because she was very active.
I noticed that the girls were mostly more responsive than the boys. It was so much fun to watch them. Times like that make me wish I were a stay-at-home mother. I wish. So these will be her classmates in June as well. Some of them were her classmates in last year's summer school and she remembered them. I'm glad she's having fun in school.
It's that time of the year to go to the beach, wear shorts, flip flops and sandals. I do love summer despite the heat because you get to wear really casual clothes and wear sandals. Via will get to wear her pink swimsuit more often. She loves a dip in the pool but we don't get to do it often because the pool is always freezing and I hate being cold. Daddy is better. He's the one who always goes swimming with Via. I love kids swimsuits. Why can't they make bigger versions of them :)
Now that I'm wearing sandals more, I'm much more aware of the state of my toenails. I don't often go for mani/pedi because I get impatient sitting in a salon. Also, the reason why I've never colored my hair, never go for rebonding and whatnot. I can't stand sitting there in the salon or nail polish shop waiting for my turn and waiting again while it's being done. Anyway, since I've discovered that Via's caregiver who's actually a cousin, knows how to do mani/pedi and cut hair, I've become interested in nail polish. For starters, I put something neutral but now that it's summer, I want to try deeper colors.
I've been looking at nail polish colors on the internet instead of going to the mall and I can across julep maven. I love the colors. They're perfect for summer. But they also have neutral colors that I like which are also perfect for french manicures.
I'm thinking of putting polish on Via's toenails as well but Daddy might have a fit :) Maybe when she's a little older. For now, she's having fun checking out the colors and trying to do her nails and copying what I'm doing.
