Happy to get stars from the teacher

After two months of being at the learning center, we are happy that the nephew is really showing improvements. The teacher really taking good care of my nephew’s needs. He is listening to the teacher, studying her lessons and loves to write a lot. He writes and participates during the class because he likes getting stars from the teacher for the job well done. It is a good decision to enrolled him at the learning center that is less crowded because the teacher can focus on the kids with special needs. They give lessons one-by-one for the kids to understand the lessons very well. I am hoping that at the end of the school year, the nephew will be so ready to take up entrance examination for kinder 2.

We do not have any idea of the nephew’s performance inside the classroom because his father will just drop him off to school before going to work, and I will just fetch him at dismissal time. Though the teacher told me that the nephew is doing well, I still have some doubts. Maybe the sister just told me positive things for us to not get worried. But I have proved that the nephew is listening attentively and take part during the class. I saw a less shy nephew I must say. I am happy for him. Keep up the good works nephew.

Moving Up Ceremony

Yesterday was the moving up ceremony of my pre-schooler nephew. It was one of the important days of his life as a student. Though he does not really understand what is happening still we are so proud of him because of the development we have seen in him for the past months. His parents are present at the ceremony. They took a day off yesterday to give time to their son. Also, for them to be able to see how their son participates in their dance presentation. And he dances happily during the presentation. I am the happiest person seeing the nephew’s development.

The nephew got two ribbons during the ceremony. He got most polite and industrious pre-schooler. We did not expect it because the nephew is a bit shy in the class. Well, only the teacher knows of the nephew’s attitude in the class. We are so proud of him. Next school year, he will be in the new school. New people, new surroundings and new friends to meet. I hope that he will continue to show more developments. It is a long way to go for him and I am wishing him the best. Continue to be a good student Andrei. You did well. We love you bunch!

Praying for the nephew’s health

My eight years old nephew is very sickly lightly. He has attacked by a severe cough and on and off fever. My SIL is so worried because the temperature went as high as 39.2-degree celsius and the nephew is chilling. We have him checked for several doctors because we want the second opinion of his condition. We have been told that there is something wrong with his urine. The red blood cells in his urine are really high. One doctor says its UTI (Urinary Tract Infection), so we undergo treatment. After the medication, the urinalysis result is not normal. Something is really wrong with the nephew’s condition.

Yesterday, the nephew has a fever again. My SIL brought him to the doctor again. Again, undergo laboratory test and advised us to consult a nephrologist. The doctor said that something is wrong with his kidney. Hearing it made us thought of the worse condition of the nephew. Lots of negative thoughts that enters our mind especially the SIL (nephew’s mother). Though we do not know what is his condition yet. The nephew has to undergo five laboratory tests first. We are sad, worried and confused about the nephew’s condition. But we tried to think positively and pray that the nephew’s health is okay and not serious. Prayer is powerful medicine, that is why we are praying so hard. Lord God heal my nephew. Amen!

Mental and Ability Skills Examination

Today is the scheduled mental and ability skills examination or non-verbal examination at the school he currently studying. The examination is to determine their skills. Also, to check if he is ready to enrolled in Grade 1 next school opening. The teacher just informed us yesterday. It was an abrupt announcement. We do not know how they are going to test my nephew. His mother (my sister) and my nephew did study basic last night though so the nephew won’t get nervous or for him to have an idea. We just hope for the better result of my nephew’s examination.

When I fetched him from school, I asked the nephew of how was the examination. He is confidently said that it is easy and he easily answered the questions. Yes, I smiled because he did not have a hard time on their examination (hope he is telling the truth).LOL We prayed that the nephew will passed the examination so he can still study at the school he is studying right now. His verbal and written examination (Baseline test) will be on March 4, 2017. Another study lesson with his mother soon. Hopefully he will passed all the test because he is so exited to enroll in grade 1. Good luck nephew. We know you can do it! God bless!

Happy to see his improvement

My nephew is three years and five months old but still can’t utter a word. The sister is so worried thinking that something is wrong with her son. We brought him to two different pediatrician and tell us to go to developmental pediatrician and it worsen the feeling of my sister. In her mind her son is an autistic. I am sad too but I do not think my nephew is an autistic. I still believe that he is just late bloomer. He is lack of attentiveness because of the people around him while he is growing. Three different nannies in a year is a big reason why the nephew is like this. I also think that these nannies does not teach him or does not communicate with him. My nephew is like deaf and mute. He is not answering or looking at you when he is called.

Before bringing him to the developmental pediatrician, I told the sister to enrolled him first at the nursery class. There he will be able to be with other kids and play with other kids. We do not care of the academic, we are more focus on him communicate with other kids/people and to us. It was very difficult at first and I trust it all to the teacher. After six months, I can see improvement of my nephew. He is not shy anymore, we can talk to him and he is paying attention when his name called. I am so happy seeing him improving. Good job nephew, way to go. We are so proud of you. We do not need to go to the development pediatrician.
