greetings, mum's thoughts

We are greeting this new month with sadness as we say goodbye to our Ditche {my Mama’s sister} but we all know that her suffering has ended and she is in a much better place now. I cannot help but smile, too, to think that they were probably having a little party for her up in the heavens with her parents, my parents, and my uncle {whom we used to fondly call Tito Pulis, because he was a police in his days}. I am sure my Mama is part of the welcoming committee, busy preparing the food if they ever get hungry and eat in heaven, that is!

This month will prove to be another busy month as we struggle to get up very early in the morning to get to school on time. It will also be filled with coercing, convincing and bribing the little man to do his homework first before attending to his toys or getting preoccupied with some other stuff. June sure was a very challenging month as I wait for my son to get used to his daily routine and I am hoping the new month will be a different story as he grows more accustomed to homework, reviews and other school-related activities. I am well aware that he is enjoying school coming home with new tales and singing new songs each day. We just have to work a bit more on his writing and hone his study habits further.

It was my online life who suffered the most last month as I had a self-imposed no-internet day on Sundays and found myself spending less and less hours online each day so that I can do more stuff around the house and devote hours to help Jared with his homework. But, although I have a number of pending reviews to work on and numerous backlogs to finish, I am enjoying every bit of time I spend offline especially while I wait for the little one at school. I enjoy meeting other mums and nannies who, like me, are also waiting for their wards to finish their classes. It sure is a breath of fresh air to meet new people, especially for stay-at-home mums who are mostly cooped up at home.

Oh well, I do apologize that I was not able to update this space as much as I’d love to but I am hoping I will be able to adjust fairly well this month so that I can come up with several posts each week. Do watch out for the following reviews:

  • Sweet Bunch
  • Novuhair
  • K5 Learning
  • 10Monkeys {which the little one is really enjoying, by the way}
  • Gigi and her Girl book review
  • Don’t Stick Sticks Up Your Nose! book review

I shall also be posting about the Making Memories and Party Planning event, which I have attended last weekend at the Medela House.

I know, this is really going to be a hectic month if I plan to work on those posts before this month ends, but I do hope I can get all the extra energy to stay up late at night or probably wake up much earlier so I can tinker in here before doing my mum duties. I hope you wish me luck.

greetings, mum's thoughts

Here’s to yet another busy but happy month ahead and may July treat us with kindness and grace. And yes, it sure are the little things that make life wonderful so keep an eye out on these simple yet beautiful blessings as you go about your day. :heart:
