Son turns 11 this year. He is becoming more independent and of late, enjoys meeting people wherever Mommy drags him to. He shows interests in what Mommy does (outside of work) and Mommy views it as a time that can be spent bonding with him.
His studies got neglected a bit this year by Mommy and Daddy (both being a tad pre-occupied with other stuff) but Mommy will try hard and focus on him come 2014. Less Mommy time, more Mommy & Son time.
He is showing plenty of interest in animation lately. We had never sent him to a proper class (art/computer) so now Mommy is wondering whether we should.
Daddy embarks on a new chapter in his life. He asked Mommy to trust him when he left a high-paying job to do some soul-searching. For a while, Mommy became the sole breadwinner for the family.
He has always been so supportive of Mommy and so it’s time for Mommy to be there for him 100% too.
He looks much happier now. So much happier than he was a year ago.
Earning much less now though. Much much less than before, but somehow we are doing relatively fine now.
Oh yeah! Daddy completed two marathons this year. Yeay!
Mommy was worried about Daddy before but decided to stop worrying so much and let things happen. God’s will. InsyaAllah things will be better. And Mommy feels that it did.
Thanks to kind friends, Mommy gets opportunities that she wouldn’t have gotten otherwise (be it earning extra income, networking and making new friends) and Mommy is super grateful to these kind souls.
Mommy too completed two marathons this year. Two very special marathons.
One, which she did at Malaysia Women Marathon earlier and another, which she did together with Daddy at Putrajaya Night Marathon.
What’s in store for us in 2014?
Well, Son will be in Standard 6. UPSR is looming.
Mommy and Daddy will try and spend more time with him. Time is precious. Our boy is getting bigger and more independent. He enjoys his independence.
Though luckily, he still enjoys our company too…
Instead of being too focused on Mommy’s own training, Mommy will take a step back in 2014 and enjoy her boys’ company more.
Here’s to a NEW YEAR and new adventures!
