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.

Busy Kiddos At School

My two kids are too busy at school nowadays.

My eldest daughter is one of the dancers at school and they were practicing really hard since they are going to perform it in NCCC Mall next month for their recital. And right after their dance practice, she would go to the other room to practice for their school band; she is the lead guitar so she needs to practice especially when she will be given a chance to have some time to strum the guitar in solo. Next week she will also be in training for MTAP, she is one of the representatives for the incoming Math Inter-school Competition.

My youngest daughter is also busy nowadays. It has been like two Saturdays already that she needs to go to school for her declamation practice. The declamation contest will be on February 7 in Colegio De San Ignacio and I am sure to watch it since I already filed a leave to watch her.

Too Busy Today, We Went To Magallanes Condominium

The road is very quiet, after the incident last night, everyone I guess just stayed home except us. The moment I went out from work, I have to fetch the kids to send them to Kumon. I supposed to meet them in Kumon, but I did not let them commute this time because of the incident last night. It is dangerous for them to ride a Jeepney.

I need to have the horn of my car repair so I send them to Kumon first; I leave them there for 30 minutes so I can look for someone to repair the horn of my car. Good thing the repair shop just near at Kumon, I was thinking to grocery shop but I just brush the idea.

After Kumon, we went to Magallanes Condominium. Mj needs to have training for her swimming since she will represent her school for DAPRISA. She needs to have some air so to survive during the competition.

While we are there, Faith meets a new baby friend, a 2 year old baby who is a resident there. They have so much fun, they were able to ride in a see saw, climbing and do the monkey bar. Faith is now behaving but she can’t stop talking.

No Lunch Yesterday

It is exam week, the schedule that was indicated in the paper that was submitted to us, is that they can go home at 2:00 in the afternoon. I was not able to fetch them up right away because I and my workmates went to a computer shop to check some desk tops. My other friend also has to pay them so he can get already the desk top that he ordered from them. They treat me for lunch right after. I didn’t know at all that Faith did not bring her lunch because Mj told Sister Merlyn not to bring them lunch because they will go home at 12:00, which is I don’t know at all. I expected them to go out at 2:00 p.m. so they have to bring lunch.

It was already 3 in the afternoon that I arrived home, they told me right away that they don’t have lunch and that they were waiting for me. I scolded Mj for not telling me at all, she said sorry and said that Faith is really hungry. I bought them some lunch in 7/11. Faith likes the Lasagna as always, they ate their lunch inside the car while I was driving them home.

This morning, Sister Merlyn prepared lunch for Faith and she put it in the lunch bag. Mj said to bring the pack bag instead of the stroller bag. So I let her transfer Faith things in the pack bag while I was preparing the car. I thought she transferred all the things and just now I just knew that she did not. She called me a while ago and said that Faith doesn’t have lunch, I am still working in my blog and I can’t just leave my work! I told her to buy Faith lunch at school since I can only fetch her later yet. Good thing I gave her extra allowance today, geez teenagers these days!
