I want to go out now, away from this busy city, away from the crowd…away from my friends and family. I want to be free from my kids’ cries and covering my ears and hiding from this dark room doesn’t seem to be of help. Oh I love my husband and my kids and leaving them doesn’t come to my mind. I know it sounds crazy for a mother like me, but I want to go somewhere in which only the birds humming and chirping be heard as they are like music to my ears; where no other human being exists. Where the falling of dried tree leaves make its soft noise, where the moist of fresh morning dew will touch my tired body, where the blow of the unpolluted air carries away all my worries. Just for once in my life, I want sometime alone. My “me” time; not to think of something else but to release all the thoughts that haunting in my head…
Shall I try yoga then? I should. Soon. Maybe.
Myke: Mommy, i'll make u proud of me...I'll raise my hand when I know the answer just so teacher will call me and let me speak... Mommy: I sooo love you baby...
Gone were the days when your body was inseparable from your bed; say goodbye to long sleeping hours. Enough of the movie marathon nights and of staying up till late and waking up soo late because summer holiday is over! It’s school time once again! Darn. Darn. Darn. Hate it? Love it!
My old routine is back again. Waking up at 5am to prepare the kids for school…prepare their breakfast, their recess snacks, giving them a bath then prepare myself for work. Good thing Dada is helping me with the household chores. He changed a lot since we’ve moved and I thank him. God is so good that He is always there for me and my family.
My kids find it hard to sleep early since the class starts because they used to sleeping late for 2 months. Blame it on me. I spoiled them when I was on holiday too. Now, I can’t blame them whenever I’m waking them up in the morning….
Dada and Myke...
Awww so sweet! I don’t want to disturb them but…wakey, wakey!
Look at my eldest. All wrapped up with my blanket…
And I convinced them to rise and shine without hearing any complaints. That’s my girls!
My grown up little ate...i'm missing our bonding moments...
Back to school…back to never ending tasks. I have been busy since the class starts. From shopping for their school things, plastic covering of books and notebooks, (thanks Ninang olive for helping out) checking uniforms from one store to another, things like that. Sighhh. More to go Leigh. Aja!
The start of summer would only mean one thing, it’s school summer vacation. Yey! Finally another year is over and I can now relax and take some break from morning rush…preparing the kids for school, their lunch box and what i hate the most is waking up so early before the cock crows. oh well, that one didn’t happened as no cock’s available in dubai except for the other thing. hehehehe!
Another school year has ended which marked who and those who didn’t performed well in class. Since my 3rd grader has a history of getting awards and medals every year, i am not surprised when my husband told me the news that my kyle got the second honor aside from the 3 awards. She made it again, felt good which eventually turned into a great great feeling when kyle told me that her dada was just telling a lie. She isn’t the 2nd honor, instead she is the 1st. She makes us proud again…always.
The big day has come and while walking up to the stage, i was trying to hold back the tears. I cried because i really am so proud of her achievements, getting the 1st honor, Best in Reading, Best in English, Best in Science and Best in Civics. Our effort has paid it off.
I have to admit that sometimes, she disappoints me when things turned out the opposite of what I am expected of her. Whenever I see a low score in her quizzes or exams, I used to asked her why, a countless why’s and keep reminding her that i am not happy seeing her score like that. For me, it should always be a perfect score. Am i bad or just so mean to her? Either way, the credit belongs to her. She deserves all the award for doing her best…
congratulations ate kyle. we love u so much.
