A new miracle

Today one of my best friends become a mother for the second time. She was in the hospital for 5 days straight, but they finally decided on C-section.  Almost two hours later, a beautiful baby girl came to this world and brought joy to the whole family.

I am so happy for them – having a baby is a miracle and we should cherish this opportunity for the rest of our life.

Welcome to this world, little one! Happy birthday! May God give you a long and happy life!

My mother-in-law was complying that we (ME in particular) stay too much on the phone and on the computer. But lately we gave her a Chromebook and showed her what you can find on Youtube. Now she is hooked up too.
Who’s staying now too much on the new gadgets? 🙂

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?

Love You Forever

Love You Forever by Robert Munsch

I found yesterday a beautiful book. I actually cried after I was done reading it. Some mothers will really like it. Later on, I found the audio version and I posted it here. Just listen to it!

Kudos to the author – he expressed in a very interesting manner a mother’s life.
