2016 has been pretty crazy so far! I was still solo-parenting during the first week of 2016 when the lil’ dragonlady had a mild strain of HFMD and missed most of her first week of school. Bummer as we just got her back into the momentum after the incident.
Only good that came out of it was, at least we got to spend some quality time together!
After months of waiting, the cub finally got started on his piano lessons. We had wanted to start in the last quarter of 2015 but I decided against using time from our precious weekends in the end and waited to start this year on another time slot instead.
From this year onwards, the cub would have to start getting used to the idea of having to do homework. Yes, at just 5yo! There will be homework from his preschool, music class, and Chinese enrichment class.
With these new commitments, we have been trying out different routines on our weeknights and weekends. It’s going to take a little while before we find one that works and does not overwhelm the kids. In the meantime, I’m going to need more caffeine.
