Life With Maya

Our daughter is eager to try new things so I've let her try her hand at making breakfast and she does well. She's usually proud of her accomplishments but likes to get quite perturbed if things are not going well though that's quickly alleviated if I show her a way to get things done. She especially likes to make eggs with tomatoes and anything green she can find.

Maya is very consciences of how she looks and spends time making sure her daily outfit is proper in color and design so I've suggested she may want to be a fashion designer but that is not to be because she says she wants to be a movie star.  I'd said she'd have to be an actress first. Though fashion designing is not in the cards I thought this outfit she'd put together from scrap material on her sporty doll is quite cool.

Maya has also been going to swimming lessons so we can be ready for the beach, that is if summer ever comes around. We are starting to thaw out so that may be a possibility. Swimming is coming along rather slow as it's a bit of work she has to do. She likes to do thing and likes to do it perfectly but the actual work part is still something she has to learn to do.

And last but not least we paid a visit to the dentist for the very first time in Canada and in her whole life. The girl has never seen a dentist before and her mouth shows it. She's got lots of cavities from all the candies she likes to eat, so we're watching the candy intake. At first she seemed fine with the dentist but as he leaned over her nerves started to show.  Luckily, he only did an assessment and we're to come back for the fillings another time. We didn't want to traumatise her too much on the first go. Eventually, braces will come into play as well but none of that hinders her beautiful smile.


  1. That is a wise move. Let her find some ease in dental visits first, before proceeding with the more rigorous dental treatments. It is important that this whole process is paced, and that she goes through it willingly. Dental visits are important, as they help people address these flaws that accumulate over time, so that they can keep their teeth healthy and whole. Thanks for sharing this with us. Cheers!

  2. Wow! Letting Maya do the things that she wants, with a little supervision, is really a must in order for her to grow up beautifully and independently. It's good to know that she excels in different activities such as cooking, swimming and choosing her own outfits. Anyway, it's great that she finally found her way to the dentist. I'm sure she'll harvest the positive benefits of regularly going soon. Thanks for sharing that, Rosie! All the best to your family!
