Your last son at age 8 can finally also sew a button on his uniform like his siblings;
Your first son gives your last son home lessons, and this clearly helped him transition from the french system of education to the english system in Grade 4;
When your second son is the DIY chef in the house, and helps even at the neighbours;
When all three know how to cook and willingly help you in the kitchen;
When your second son’s grades in form one are much better than when he had after school lessons from a tutor;
How proud of my sons should I be? How grateful and graceful? Do I focus on some normal incidents of their age such as: naked dancing during laundry, some missing books and, non attendance at doctrine; and miss out on all the miracles and bliss they bring?
Parenting I am learning, got lot to do with balancing various choices and actions, but above all having a real relationship with your children. Even if physically apart (like I once was intermittently for four painful years), a spiritual connection is possible.
Since returning in August 2015, and moving to our own home in February 2016, it has been more of thrilling than not. No enticing or lucrative prospect can lure me to leave my sons again like that.
Be inspired and motivated all ye parents and single parents in the house
