Khayla’s First Week At An Islamic Montessori

It has been more than a week since Khayla started going to an Islamic Montessori.
Mr Sunshine and I agreed to take her out from the nursery she had been at prior to this because the Montessori is nearer to where we’re staying now plus we want her to learn & have exposure to classes in English.

The challenges I have faced over the first week is waking her up to bathe & get into her uniform. Before this, I could just send her to the nursery in her nighties, hehe.
Apart from that, I think she handled her first week at her new school like a champion.

Khayla's First Week

Khayla all dressed up in her uniform, not looking very happy on her first day. Hehe.

Mummy, on the other hand is not doing too well. Haha.
Why ?
Firstly, since she has started going to a Montessori which uses English as its medium, I am slowly trying to speak to her in English at home but I feel so bad when she says, “Mummy cakap English ke ? Cakaplah macam biasa, saya tak faham.”  :(

I’m all worked up because of course I blame myself for not using English at home since she was small and now I am worried that my 3-year old daughter will get all confused and stressed while trying to learn English. *nangis*

Am I being too emotional or paranoid ? Isk Isk.

Secondly, the other day she came back and told me, “Mummy, saya senyum kat kawan-kawan tapi takde siapa senyum kat saya.”
Ok Mummy nak nangis but tahan only. I comforted her by telling her to keep smiling at them and InshaAllah they will slowly learn to smile back. *nangis*

And then she also told me that she misses Ain, her best friend in her old nursery. :(

So sadddd…….

Thirdly (yes there’s more), Khayla is potty trained (she still wears diapers when she sleeps) and has learned to drink milk using a cup in her old nursery but at this new school they have ‘converted’ her back to the bottle.

I knowwww, I have no idea why I am so worked up over such petty things. I blame my hormones. Hehe.

Anywayyy, here are a couple of photos from Khayla’s last day at her nursery.

May Allah ease this transition.
May Allah protect my little Khayla.
May Allah ease her journey to learn new things and make new friends.

May Allah calm Mummy’s emotions.

Ameen Ya Rabb !

    Awwww poor thing, it will pass soon and she’ll adjust very soon. Kids are resilient beings, she’ll be just fine! Hugs

      I sure hope so Feli. Her teacher says she’s adjusting well, so that’s a relief. :)

    Don’t worry about it. The more you speak to her in English the more she’d catch up, especially at this age. It might be difficult at first but she will learn eventually. Momma needs lotsa support tho 😉

      Yes, I’ve gotta have faith in her. She’s only turning 4 this year anyway.
      Thanks dear. :*
