Kind things

You all know that I love to read. And from time to time I found something very nice that I want to share it with you.

This is a good example. It’s from the Blackmailing Aria, a book that I read on Wattpad.

Pleasures

Sunday night I couldn’t sleep, so Monday at work I was like a zombie. I’ve promised myself I will go to bed early. And although I try to watch the dance free skate at the Olympics (Pyeongchang, South Korea), I fall asleep a little before 11. That was last night and I can honestly say that sleep is one of the best thing that you can do for your body.

Talking about good things for you – reading and relaxation are also on the list. If you can combine them, than even better. 🙂

Rose Weasley

I am a big fan of Harry Potter world. And I read a lot (and I really mean a lot) of fan-fiction stories with the new HP generation. Out of the whole bunch of new kids, I am a fan of stories with Rose Weasley. Lately, I found this photo for a version of Rose that I really like – she is the perfect combination of her parents.

What do you think, she can look like this, right?

Secret

I want to tell you a secret.

I always said am a so-so mother. I am not the worst and I am very far for being the best. And no, this is not the secret I was talking about.

Last week my kid had a school project – to color and decorate a pumpkin as a his favorite book character. He decided on a Pokemon from one of his Pokemon books. We bought all the painting supplies and he worked very hard to achieve that character. And that it makes things even hard for me… You see, I was supposed to sign a paper to agree with my kid participation in the school competition. And as the so-so mother that I am, I completely forgot about. I started filling in the file a few days before the due date, but I did not complete it due to other activities. And I did not check all the school files again later in the week and so my kid ended up with no paper.

When I picked him up on Friday, he told me that a lot of kids loved his pumpkin and asked why he did not participated in the competition. That was the moment that I realized I forgot the paper. And it was nothing what I could have done – Friday (10 a.m.) was the last day to enter in the competition.

I feel soooo bad, because he really worked hard on the project. And he had a big chance to win something – maybe not the first place, but maybe second or third. And because of me, now he doesn’t have that chance.

I was so ashamed of myself that I didn’t even tell my husband about. And it’s killing me. Maybe that’s why I’m writing this post – to release some of the guilt.

What do you think? Did you mess-up something for your kids?
