I never thought I’d be a SAHM ( Stay-at-Home-Mom) before. I mean, that was not one of my ‘ambitions’ when I was young. But as we are working in a full time ministry abroad, I didn’t have a choice but to be one especially as I’m also homeschooling my kids. Being a SAHM and a homeschooler is truly rewarding( maybe I can write a separate post on that) , but there are just times that one gets tired and burnt out. I think that’s where I am now in my journey as a SAHM and homeschooler. I wonder how other homeschooler moms handle these situations. I really need to learn from them. I could also just take a step back, evaluate and see what changes I can do to avoid these situation. Or maybe, I can just take a short break .. but how?
My li’l girl will be turning 9 tomorrow! She’s very excited to be 9 years old and I’m not so sure why! lol! A few years ago, she’s excited for her birthdays because of parties and presents, but this time she’s just excited about growing up! Or.. maybe it’s the only thing left for her to be excited of since there are not more parties and less presents as the time goes by.
Anyways, I’m happy for my little girl too. Tomorrow will be a special day for her because it’s a testimony of God’s faithfulness over the years. Indeed, she’s so precious and special for us and we just love her so much!
It just saw the photos of my niece’s birthday celebration. She had a simple ‘pool party’ with her other cousins. It really looked like they enjoyed their celebration with or without hayward salt cell for the pool. I just wished my kids were there to celebrate with her. My kids always love to be with their cousins. When they looked at the photos they told me how they missed their cousins too!
Here’s the birthday girl in her Minnie Mouse swimwear.
I’m just so happy with how my boy is progressing with his reading. Oh, I could just remember our ‘drama’ a year and a half ago during our ‘reading class’. It really proves that it takes ‘readiness’ for the child to be able to read. If one is not ready, then it will surely be a struggle and forcing the child to ‘read’ is not beneficial at all! So, better wait until he/she is ready and we will surely reap our rewards. As what one title of the book says, ‘ It’s Better Late than Early’.
My Pinterest is overflowing with photos of Easter baskets and goodies, from colorful egg shaped eggs to chocolate bunnies. Some are photos of beautiful baskets filled with cakes, candies and maybe Swisher Sweets . Looking at all those colorful cupcakes, makes me want to make my own goodies and give to our friends tomorrow. But then, I felt so tired and lazy today. So, I’ve passed out the opportunity for me to practice my cake decorating ‘skill’ and making my friends happy.. ;(
