Trying to get back in the groove of things. So many things I stopped doing, procrastinated doing, and started doing all over again. I love saving our memories. I especially enjoy preserving our stories. One day I want my children, our family to be able to look back on these moments and at least get an idea of what life was like, what they enjoyed or didn’t enjoy. This week we have our second set of school conferences. It will be interesting. Brady has been doing well academically and behavior-wise. He had a few issues with classmates wanting to “wrestle” him and some were eating his snacks before he could even enjoy them for snack time. At one point, I thought to myself “Is kindergarten supposed to be like this?” They had me questioning even sending my child to school. We are working on solutions. At least one of the issues got resolved quickly once hubby and I went to the school. The snack bandit is another story (lol!). Aida is doing well academically and of course, she never gets into trouble. I have steadily been working with her on her memory by sharing some of the things that I do to help me to remember things. She is getting better. At the end of the week, she will be going to get braces and like most kids her age, she’s excited. Thinking about all of that and then looking back to where we were about 5 years ago seems so strange, but nice at the same time.
These little people are older now and are quite busy. Brady is still climbing on any and everything and still enjoys building things with his toys. Aida still enjoys her shows, which now consist of anime and meme-worthy videos. Our little 900 sq. ft. apartment will always be an integral part of our story. We were in such a tight space with too many things stashed in there. We made the best of it and enjoyed being with each other. Sometimes I think it helped us all to be so close.
