Idle And Being Busy

My eldest daughter already started their summer vacation, she busy herself now with playing games on her cellphone. She went out sometimes with her friends, just like last Saturday she missed swimming a lot so she ask me if I can give her some money so she can swim in a nearby subdivision. I gave her some after we got home from grocery shopping. Good thing, she decided not to transfer school at all, she would transfer when she finish her 12th grade. I can’t believe my eldest daughter will be in college soon. She is still contemplating with taking up engineering or something else.

While my eldest is just being idle at home, Faith still has some things to be done at school. Their vacation will start on May 1st. They are yet reviewing their exam this month. But today with skipped school aside me, not feeling well, she had a diarrhea yesterday and last night she vomit a number of times, good thing I decided to be absent from work, I was able to attend to her even though I was not feeling good. I guess my adrenalin rushes when I learned she vomited in the bathroom, I did not feel any pain in my back when attending her but when she’s done, the pain started again. Right now, she’s not vomiting at all, but she skipped school so I can monitor her. Hopefully, the pain that I am feeling in my back would also go away.

Done With The Re-Evaluation

Faith is diagnosed for ADHD when she was in kinder. Don’t feel bad about it, my daughter is okay, we just need to correct her behavior so she can focus more.

So our evaluation just done last Friday, I really thought that we can transfer her already in a big school, the school near us but I was wrong because she still need to improve more, she still can’t focus, she talks a lot even while completing her task, she’s very impulsive and distracted.

Her Math evaluation for school related skills was yet in Grade 3 and she’s already in Grade 4. She whined when she have to answer the Math problem.

But with Science and Reading comprehension, she is so advanced for it.

The Doctor suggested for a Math Tutorial and a Behavioral Therapy.

I was thinking to continue her Kumon in Math and won’t do a Behavioral Therapy that if I will stop working. To stop working is to sacrifice for some extra stuff. If I stop working, our outside activity like eating in a restaurant, or Jollibee or McDonalds will be limited. We need to budget a lot with foods to eat at home, allowances, and transportation, which means no Taxi even all the Jeepneys are full.

I know that if I am working I can provide them all the stuffs, especially Mj will be in college soon. I can help big time with our expenses at home. But I really have to think about this, I also don’t want to compromise the things that my kid’s needs especially with their school and education.

Never Heard A Complain At All

These past few days, I’d been so busy doing some school stuffs merely covering my kids books especially with Faith so that her stuffs won’t easily get torn up. After I covered her school books, she begged me to cover also her newly purchased books. She got 3 books for the land of stories. She had Book 2, Book 3 and Book 5 and all of it was not covered, she noticed that it was easily damaged so she asked me to cover the new one. I told her I would only cover her books if she would help and she was willingly lent me a hand. I guessed she was enjoying it because I didn’t hear any complain at all.
