Where has the week gone? I really dont know!! People say time flies when you are having fun, but I dont believe I have been having much fun this week at all.
The kids were all home on Monday, due to Deepavali. There was a LOT of fighting and squabbling over the use of the TV and the computer.
My son was home all week, and when he is home, I am usually stressed. Why? read on::
You see, next week is exam week for him. I tried to get him to study, but each time, after 5 mins at his books, he will say that he is done. BUT I know he is NOT done studying. WHY is it so difficult to get him to study???
And then he will start fighting with his Mei Mei over toys, over the TV, over anything. Even a toy or book that has been lying around for months untouched. Once one of them takes it, the other will want it. I know its their attention seeking ways. BUT it drives me up.
And then my son will complain about his food. Take yesterday for example. We had teochew porridge for lunch. When he saw it, he complained non-stop about how he hated it. Could he have plain instant noodles instead? etc, etc. Of course I put my foot down and said: Eat it or go hungry. Naturally he ate it. When dinner time came around, he said: "Can I have porridge instead of rice? Rice is so boring!!" A 100% turn around from lunch. Of course he got a shelling from me, and ate his RICE.
So, you can tell, I definitely did not have much fun this past week. But where did the week go? I really dont know. Anyway, I am glad it's FRIDAY!! and I am looking forward to the end of next week ... when I dont have to bug my son to study, and the whole family can have a relaxing time unwinding.
Have a great weekend!!
