I have been spending my days working and building up my career then after that the kids and I enjoy down time – most recently I played basketball with my sons while waiting for my daughter to get out of her Academy Program she is in. Playing hoops with my boys, getting 3 baskets, made my day. I was so happy in those moments on the high school basketball courts!
I took time to try to teach my middle child how to dribble and pass, sharing my love of basketball with my boys was a memory making moment for sure.
We are doing well in our new place and settling in nicely. Dinners together at night lead to entertaining conversations and moments of me having to get conversation back on track from boy topics so that my daughter and I don’t cringe and lose our appetite.
Mornings are spent just enjoying each others company, playing the piano, watching Netflix or just chatting about what we have in plan for the day! I wake up each morning to my sons in my bed just playing with stuffed animals and being happy. My oldest is at the teen stage where she is a bit off kilter but still fun to be around; every once in awhile I Just have to remind her who the Mama is, but we move from that moment quickly.
Building the bond with my children back up is such a happy time for me and I am completely enjoying every moment our new chapter has for us …. money is tight of course, that is expected with any move, but love is always in big supply around this home, and love is what matters!
