I made a promise to my daughter Mj that I will accompany her on the pool when it’s my day off, so last Thursday after I fetched Faith from school, we went out right away so she will not be late to her training. But even though I was with her, I can feel that she doesn’t like to train anymore. I am not sure if this will be the last time or she would still want to continue her swimming journey but whatever her decision, I am always be here no matter what. I will always support her.
I am worried about my eldest daughter, I know that she is just hiding it but I know she is having a hard time with her schedule. You see, her dismissal from school is always about 4 in the afternoon, and there are a lot of times that she could not hail a Jeepney right away. Sometimes, she has to wait for an hour for her to get a Jeepney to go home. And sometimes, she would arrive home at 6 in the evening, in which she will have to prepare all her things for training. She don’t have time to do her project anymore, she don’t have time to study at all. She will arrive home from training, most of the time at 11:30 in the evening and since she got very tired already, she would crawl to her bed to sleep right away. I know we have to decide sooner or later if we continue the swimming or not, and whatever it will be, it will be for a lifetime.
Yesterday, my youngest daughter swim from 5:30 in the afternoon up to 9:00 in the evening, and yet when we went home last night she was still so hyper. Today, I told her to prepare since their learn to swim will start at 6 in the evening, yet she said that she doesn’t like to swim because she is tired, she even said that she doesn’t want to go with me but she will miss me. I can’t help but laugh, she sounded so cute when she said that. Oh well, I can’t insist her to go swimming, so I just message her friend if she would like to learn to swim today. Together with Mj, we fetched them on our way to the pool; they were surprised that Faith is not there.
It has been a while that my youngest daughter and I did not go to the mall together after class. Last year before her sister decided to go back to swimming, we always go together in the mall after class. I was not busy yet that time and I am not chasing time, I have all the time at home with my kids and because Mj went back to her training, time is gold for me, I always in a hurry especially when Faith also attends Kumon already. Last week final exam finished on Thursday, so right after the exam Faith and I went to the mall. We ate at her favorite fast food chain, Jollibee. She had fun; after she ate she asked me if she could ride in the carousel. I was hesitant at first because she tends to move while riding in the carousel, she can’t steady so I talked to her this time and told her that she can if she can be still and have to wait for the staff to put her on and off to the carousel. She agreed with me and so I allowed her.
Her birthday this year was already held in Jollibee and yet she is still amazed taking picture with Jollibee every time we go out from the Jollibee stall.
Last Saturday, after we shopped for her costume to be wear this week, I enroll her for swimming lesson in the same coach with Mj. So while Mj is doing her training, the coach was with Faith and other kids to teach them how to swim. Next time I will take a video of her, coach was having fun of her because of her being so talkative. For the meantime this is all I could offer, a blurry picture.
