3-day weekend


I finally remembered the meaning of the word "REST". I've been stressed up to my last strand of sanity for the past few weeks due to my new responsibilities at work.

I feel like I've been neglecting my mommy duties because work takes too much of my time. I'm usually in the office before 8am and arrives home around 7pm. I only have a couple of hours everyday to attend to my son's needs. I often wished that I could be a SAHM (Stay-at-home-mom) so that I can give 24 hours to my son.

That is why I am so thankful for the 3-day weekend because I got more time to spend with my son. We went to the mall to buy groceries, something we haven't done in a while because his dad and I were always in a hurry. We spent the whole sunday doing his assignment and talking about his friends in school. I love the way my son's eyes twinkle whenever I ask him about his day in school, or his taekwondo class. It gives him the impression that I am really interested in what he is doing and it makes him look forward to his next class so that he can tell me more stories.

We planned to wash the car and give the dogs a bath this weekend but because it was raining non-stop we are trapped indoors. I asked him to tell me about the game he's playing on facebook and he excitedly taught me how to play. It's like my world turned upside down because mommy is the one learning from her son.

I wish there will be more long weekends this year so that I can have more time for my son.

Blessed be.
