Back to School

Hi All! Have’nt posted much lately….been a little preoccupied with my son who will be going back to school after a realllly looooong 2 week break!

For that past 2 weeks, I have been handling him from work and also once I am home. Every day I had to find something different for him to do. I took him to a colleague’s house to spend one afternoon, then couple of times to run around in the airport ( as my dad was travelling), prepared Easter eggs, then numerous trips down the apartment building to play with the other kids……One day I even took the day off to take him, my dad and the maid off for breakfast and then to my sister’s house to play.

I must say I kinda enjoyed it all 🙂 I mean even though he is a handful and conversing becomes more exhausting due to so many questions and explanations, I enjoyed every minute of it 🙂 I guess when he is older, he wouldn’t want to spend time with me, so I’ll enjoy it now.

During one of our playtime sessions down the apartment building, I even got to know the girl who I think is now officially his first crush!!!! So sweeeettt! I wish all of you could have seen them together, how my son smiles when she is around and how he wants to play with her.. She also takes a lot of effort to focus on him, play the games he wants to play and basically showers him with attention! I think this is why he likes her! Took lots of photos that day of all them and then both of them………memories. I wonder how my son would feel if I showed him these photos when he is much older!!

Tomorrow, we are back to the same routine, yelling to properly brush those teeth and dressed for school……………to eat a wholesome breakfast after that……..trying to get him to finish drinking milk while I am in my room trying to be presentably dressed for work. Need all the luck I can get for all this and then beat traffic getting to work…

At the same time, LUCK to all the other moms who from tomorrow will be in the same boat as me…I also hope you had some great moments with your kids these holidays…got to see a different side of them..

Enjoy!

Note: need to make sure we have enough bread, sandwich making ingredients and juice for school lunch’s. No more late nights…early bed time starts today

Merry Christmas everyone!!
