How Busy!

My son has been a member of a soccer team for five years and is into playing soccer. He took part in a soccer game last Sunday morning. He was excited and went to the ground he would play. However, I was worried about whether the game would be finished as scheduled or be pushed back ten or twenty minutes because he had to take the STEP test in the afternoon.
I was thinking "if his team advances to the final, there is no time left for us". Maybe we would arrive at the place where he would take the test on time. However, I wasn't sure.

As I had guessed, his team won and advanced the final...^^; I was happy to see him play, of course, but at the same time I had mixed feelings. Sorry, my son..^^;
After the final, we headed for the place at warp speed. As you can imagine, he didn't have time to change his uniform! He just put on his windbreaker and changed his shoes while I was driving to the place.

We luckily arrived there just ten minutes before the test....Phew.....You might call me a pushy mom, though....
I hope he will pass it.....

Anyway, his team won the final! lol

For Santa and Reindeer

My son, who is in the 4th grade, still believes in Santa Claus. Last night, he was preparing some milk and snacks for Santa and his reindeer. He told me that Santa Claus would be exhausted from visiting all over the world and his reindeers would be thirsty.
How sweet!
I wrote a message to cherish his pure heart as if it was a letter from Santa.

I hope he will be pleased with the message and presents.

Like Father, Like Son

Maybe, a lot of people including me have habits. I think we're unconsciously doing each habit.

As for my hubby, he has a trick of fiddling with his hair. While driving his car in particular, he's doing that. About my son, he has the same habit! lol "Like father, Like son", right? haha

Too Serious!?

Last Tuesday, I was giving a regular lesson as usual. At the time, my son called me. I thought something bad might have happened to him, so I answered his call in spite of being in the middle of the lesson.

He told me he had forgotten to bring his math textbook home and couldn't do his homework, sobbing bitterly. Oh...........I see........
Luckily, he had soccer practice at his school on that day, so I said, "Then, you should go to your teachers' room to pick it up." However, he told me he was too nervous to go there.
He seemed panicked and didn't listen to me at all....--; I thought he wouldn't calm down for a while, so decided to hang up....haha^^; Don't get me wrong. I had no choice but to do that in that situation! lol

Just after I arrived home, he came back home as well. I asked him what he did after I hanged up. He told me that he'd had a tantrum, but went to the teachers' room to pick it up before his soccer practice.

See? You could do it by yourself. All you can do is to think what you should do at first in any circumstance!

A Rebellious Stage

Every time my son is promoted, I can see his growth. He's in the fourth grade and into playing soccer now.
I'm surprised to see that recently he has very often showed an aspect of men since he went into that grade.
He, for example, talks back to me and my hubby when we scold him. Whether reasonable or unreasonable, he insists on his opinion. He didn't used to do that before, so I'm surprised, but at the same time I'm happy to see his growth. Having said that, he's still young. I mean that sometimes he behaves childish, sometimes like adults. I think it's time to become conscious of his ego at his age.

To be honest, I was a little confused about how to deal with him. That's why I talked with him to make a clean breast of our feelings. Thanks to that time, I realized that I was apt to think him like a small boy and intrude my opinion on him rather than listening to him. To add to that, I was liable to cut in the middle of his talking when he was talking about a half-baked opinion.

He's still wet behind ears, but I learned an important thing from him: he already has his own ego.
