My midnight Snack

I intended to sleep late today because I have several tasks to finish.  Since I cannot do it at daytime because of the kids, I take the opportunity to do it at night where there is quiet.  I can think clearly without anyone bugging me.  The only problem is that when I feel sleepy in the middle of doing my tasks.  To keep me fully awake, I have to make my mouth busy which means I need to buy something for midnight snack.  I can’t drink coffee because it has bad effects on me.  So the safest way to keep me awake is to eat something while doing my tasks.

My midnight snack today is bread and paired it with water and maybe noodles.  A bit heavy midnight snack for me, but I need it to keep me awake.  I am not sure if it is okay or not as long as I am fully awake and hopefully finished the tasks before the sun rises tomorrow. Am I being harsh to myself?  I don’t know either.  I will just making it up when the tasks are all done.  So, when everyone is sleeping and in their dreamland I will be doing my online tasks, with the help of my laptop, fingers, brain and of course the bread that will make my mouth busy.  haha!

Remembering his 33rd birthday

He was only 4 years old when he died. I do not understand then of what is the cause of his death. He is a bubbly brother, always smiles, and loves to play a lot. That is how I remember my younger brother. We did not spend more time playing because I usually play with my sister and him with our older brothers. I regret those times because we do not have much memories to remember because we are still very young.   His death is very painful to my late mother because he is so young and a mama’s boy. The brother being sick gives pain to my late mother. I remember my mother cried looking at him and on the day he died.

Anyways, even if he died almost three decade ago, we still remember him, and his birthday. This month is his birth month. If he is alive, he is 33 years old by now and probably married because he is a cutie in the family. This month we remember his 33rd birthday. Sadly, we did not able to visit his grave because it was gone long time ago. We did not able to locate him anymore. He was buried in the province where we live before. We tried our best to locate him but did not able to. Even though, we still remembers him and he will always be in our heart. To my younger brother, wherever you are right now, happy birthday, and please know that you are always in our hearts. I thank God for giving you to us even if the time is short.

Impressive weekly tests results

The nephew did not able to attend pre-school. We just teach him basic at home in preparation for his kindergarten. When his mother enrolled him, we are afraid the school won’t accept him because he doesn’t have early learning at pre-school. But he knows already how to count numbers from one to ten, recognizes colors and a bit of the alphabet. Also, knows how to write his name. We double our time teaching him so he won’t be having a hard time when the classes start. I can say that the nephew is a brave because even though his learning is limited, he can easily cope up with the lessons.

My thought when he entered the class was that, he is like joining in a war without any gun at all.   However, his performance at school proves us that he is ready to go to school. He is a studious kid because when we arrived home from school, instead of going out and play, he prefers to practice writing his name, writing numbers, drawing and putting colors on the images he draws. We also help him studying his lessons. For two months of studying, I can say that the nephew is improving. His weekly examinations results are impressive. He got perfect score too. I am so proud of the nephew’s impressive weekly tests results. I hope that he will continue doing well at school and hopefully finish with merits. Good luck nephew and study hard.

The dog and cat

My four and two year’s old nephews are like dog and cat.  The two makes me so tired, busy, and smiling.  I say tired because they do lots of mess in the room, living room and in the kitchen. Well, they are so busy touching the things in the house.  Their minds are so curious I must say.  Though being curious is a good sign that their minds are working and they are observant kids, still it is so tiring cleaning their mess.  Second, they make me so busy attending their needs and keeping my eyes on them because they like to fight even on little things, especially when they both got interested on same thing.  Lastly, makes me smiling when they are dancing and being friends after the fight.  It seems like nothing happens after the fight.  That is how kids are.  Also, they make me smile seeing they are growing and discovering new things.

I call them my little rascals because of the things they do at home, the little rascals that I so loved, cherished and cared.  I like that they learned things from them.  I wish that they will grow a good and loving individual. I like spending more time with them and teaching them simple stuffs because I also learned while teaching them.  They say that taking care of kids is the most tiring and difficult job in the world, yes it is true, but it is worth it.  And worth to spend your time.
