|Wearing bigger rompers now!|
Today is the last day of my so-called "confinement" (I basically flouted every rule in the book!) cos Jaide will be back from infant care and I'll start to cook next week. My schedule will be full again with chores and caring for the younger 2. Joash and Jayna will continue with full day childcare since it'll be too disruptive academically to go back to homeschooling with only 6 months left. Next year, Joash will be in primary school while the 2 girls will attend a regular 3-hours kindergarten.
I'm really happy to be able to cook again. In fact, the children have been very anxious for me to do so and kept bugging about when I'll resume making their favourite dishes. They are actually counting down to the day! I'm also eager for Jaide to be home since she has picked up a few bad habits these two months at infant care. I sure hope that I can correct the negative behaviour now that she'll not be in the company of unruly children who scream, throw things and refuse to wait. Sigh! Where has my mild mannered, independent and patient darling girl gone?
Yesterday, I brought out bigger clothes for Joram to wash as he has already outgrown the smallest ones. I then noticed that Joash's PJs are getting too tight and short for him too. I also upgraded the girls' clothes not so long ago. Looks like I'll be constantly playing the catch-up game with the kids' physical growth. They're growing up way too fast!
I had spent the last month since I delivered (and was delivered from my pregnancy's sufferings! LOL) setting the household in order and settling Joram's full month celebration. It has been really busy getting things fixed, organised and tidied so that I can finally function at my 100% capacity come Monday. The tap and toilet door are replaced; the children's library is rearranged; the condiments are sorted out (many of them expired while I was preggy); the menu is done; the store room has been re-organised; my wardrobe is updated and most importantly, regular bible study and prayer for myself and the kids are all planned out. Yup! I'm ready to go at maximum speed. *grin*
