Yeah, that Alphabet book is what Alistair has been reading (along with whatever else Amy has been reading. He’s just into whatever his big sis is doing or playing with or touching. Yes, I see fights coming very soon.) But what I want to talk about in this post is actually the books I have been reading – sorry I ran out of pictures and have no time so far to take new ones hehe!
I firmly believe that life is full of lessons. I also believe that we should constantly be learning and improving in all aspects of our lives and interests. To help me remember better what I’ve learned, I am starting this new category ‘Classroom’ to jot down notes that I find important – notes that I get through reading, or workshops, or courses, or experiences, or revelations.
I know that sometimes the term ‘soul-searching’ seems overused and overrated. But I do believe that we all need to do some soul-searching occasionally. We need to take some time periodically to step back and reflect on our lives, and ask ourselves if we are happy with where we are now, and what – if any – do we want to do differently.
Today I overcame my sleeplessness, bundled the kids, braved the morning cold, and visited a playgroup nearby. I had been wanting to go to a playgroup since we arrived in Melbourne, but I always had an excuse not to – too tired, too busy, too cold, too lazy (oops).
This week, I’ve been thinking about my daddy a lot. I just keep having flashbacks of certain moments with him: him walking with the hubby and I to lunch near his office; him coming down the stairs when we visit him at home; him playing games till late at night (and me watching the game right by his side, trying not to scream when the zombies came up);
As you guys know, Alistair has been a terrible sleeper lately. When he was born, he was an absolute sleep angel. I could put him in his cot, and he would play by himself before falling asleep. Even if I rocked him to sleep, it was easy to put him down. And then he would sleep at least 5 to 6 hours straight at night, before waking up for feeds.
