days of Jan 2013

It’s probably whimsical to say that 2013 might be a pressurising year for me as January has just passed and the future might be too infinite to predict with vast possibilities is every second.

January hasn’t been lenient but I am thankful. I don’t expect life to be a bed of roses, but I am afraid of challenges. When it comes, I must learn to tackle it in a composed manner.

Work has been assiduous. I was preparing for a migration. It took some effort albeit being a small project. As I am typing this diary, I am glad that the migration went well despite some hiccups on the migration night.

Home was more of a concern. No more night TVs for me and the kids as nights are mostly for homework and revision except Fridays.

Weekends are spent on classes, sports and spelling. The education is Singapore is so competitive, I cant help pushing Abang as he is lagging behind in reading and writing. He, being so used to the helper now have to face independence in front of his face, while being in school. He has to learn to wash up after a big business and mind you, he has come back home with a mess in his shorts for the helper to clean up . Poor boy. But these are necessary lessons for one to grow.

Adik is just a baby at time. Very loving pinky person who loves princesses and ballerinas. Adik at 4 is a typical girl. I am giving her a lot of play time and wont press on her academics yet as I want her to enjoy these young years before she hits 6. But I will ensure that she can read before she goes to Primary school. - A painful lesson that I am learning now with Abang.

It’s another chapter in my life - Being a mom to a Primary school kid.

And secretly and sinful-ly , I am planning our next get-away. A much needed break. Hoping Hubby can get away from work for a few days though.....
