So I haven’t written anything about my munchkins in a while. They have been keeping me super busy these past few weeks. My oldest tried out for her school’s talent show…she loves to dance and I think that she did a great job. Sadly, she was not selected to be a part of the show. I of course used that moment to teach her that life does not always workout the way we want. She was very disappointed and that it made sense because she did work hard. Her father and I both encouraged her to keep dancing and to work harder for the next talent show. She bounced back very quickly and has been working on new dance routines. I love her spirit and how she is able to bounce back, I sincerely hope that she never lose that ability because we live in a harsh world and I want her to know to understand that there will be some great days and some down days.
As for my little man, he was selected to participate in his school’s spelling bee competition and he did very well. Yes, my kids go to two different schools and it takes a lot of coordinating when it comes to morning drop off and afternoon pick up. My son use to hate reading and it took a lot patience and work for him to fall in love with reading as much as he does now. I also loved that he did not stress over the fact that he was going to be in a competition. His dad went to the competition since I have been sick and he video taped the entire thing. I watched it afterwards and I almost cried because it was so neat to see my little man being so poised and calm. My kids are constantly teaching me things about life and about how to deal with stressful events. I love being their mom because in a way I am kind of reliving parts of my childhood as I watch them grow.
With that said, I should say something about my little diva and how challenging she can be. I have been trying to get her ready for school. I taught and prepared my two oldest for school and so it makes perfect sense that I would want to prepare baby number three. I am starting to think that I might have to enroll her in a pre-school because she has a very strong personality and I think she needs to spend more time with children her age. She loves to learn but she hates to sit still and so I am constantly looking for new ways to keep her engaged and excited. She can recite the alphabet and can count, she also knows her primary colors, shapes and many more but I am kind of worried about her social skills. I spoke to her father and we both agree that she needs to spend time with kids her age several times a week. My little diva loves to paint and dance, so we are going to enroll her in a dance class in a few weeks.
I feel very blessed to have such sweet, smart, kind and independent children. They work hard at school and they try their best to do what is expected of them. I am not saying that my kids are perfect but I am very thankful to have my Bible to help me out when things get tough. I know that this parenting thing would be a whole lot more complicated without Jehovah God’s guidance.
I better get going, it is way past my bed time and I need to take my pain medications…they aren’t very helpful so I am going to consult with another physician just to make sure that my current doctor’s diagnosis is correct.
