The attention seeker

When the nanny of my nephews is left, I took the position temporarily while the sister is looking for a replacement. Since I am babysitting the son of my brother, my sister just bring the baby at home before she and her husband will go to work. It is a very tiring job but I did accept it because they are my nephews and I wanted to help my sister in my own little way. The nephews are little and needs more of my attention more. At first he loves to play with his cousin, but later I noticed that when I carry the baby he will cry and wanted me to carry him also.sigh! Too bad I cannot carry them together because they are too heavy.

I can tell that the other nephew is jealous and wanted my attention because he does things that make me mad. He creates many mess in the house, cries a lot, spank the baby when I am not looking and the worse is when I feed the baby with milk, he wanted to have milk too. Poor little nephew of mine, got jealous of his own cousin. I felt sorry for the other nephew that is why when the baby is sleeping, I play with him, spend time with him, talk to him about him and his little cousin. I told him to love each other instead of quarrelling him. I hope he did understand what I am saying and will no longer spank his cousin and will no longer make a mess in the house.

T.G.I.F it is!

This week is a bit tiring for me. I have lots of things to be done like cleaning the house, loads of laundry and look after the kids. I have not get enough sleep yet since the last family bonding at the beach. It was tiring because we have to travel far from the city but it is worth it because we did have our wonderful family bonding. It is good to be away from the city for a while and be free from busy and noisy city.

I patiently wait for this weekend so that I can have some time to rest and relax because I really needed it. I feel relieve when Friday comes because the day after Friday, there is someone who can look after the brother’s kids and also the sister is around to look after her son. I am free as a bird on Saturday but not all the time especially when the sister has over time job to finish and when the weekend nanny is busy. I am so glad that it’s T.G.I.F because tomorrow I’ll be going to meet a friend at the mall. It is time for me to unwind and pamper myself outside the house. No need to bring any kids because there is someone who will babysit them. The feeling is so wonderful to be able to have the feeling of being free. Thanks God it’s Friday!

Because they get bored easily

Since I worked at home I seldom go out. My life evolves by doing house hold chores, taking care of my siblings kids, and doing my stuffs online. This is the reasons why I do not have time to go out and unwind. My vacant day is Sunday only, but I prefer to stay at home and relax. Sometimes I want to go out and unwind, however, I cannot do it without thinking who will take good care of the kids. One Saturday, I am in the mood to go out and spend the day with the kids at the mall. I seldom treat them so I told my sister about it. I am glad that she agreed. We went to the mall and bring the kids to the playhouse that they wanted to go. While the sister and I do the window shopping. It’s been a while since the last time we did window shopping.

After an hour, we go back to the playhouse and get the kids. The treat would not be complete without treating them to our favorite Chinese restaurant called Mandarin. We went there and ordered our favorite foods. The waitress said that we have to wait for 20-30 minutes for the food to served. The kids started to get bored and very noisy. We tried to divert their attention to other things but still they want to move out of the high chair. To avoid them from creating noise in the restaurant, the sister give to the nephew the spoon to play. Glad that they sit still.whew! It is not easy to keep the kids quiet and stay still because they get bored easily.

Fruits every meal time

Even though I have heard that eating fruits every meal time is good because it is rich in fiber for better metabolism. Fiber is good in our body to dispose the possible fats that will restore and already restored in our body. I am not into fruits that much, maybe because I was not orient well to eat fruits every meal time back then. Well, I am told by my late mother before that fruits are good in our body that is why she planted fruit trees in our backyard. Sad to say, we did not able to taste the fruits from the trees that my mother planted because we moved to the city and father sold our property.

Because of the benefits that our body can get from eating fruits, I have to love eating fruits now. It is mainly for health purposes and for the healthy lifestyle. Fruits today are a bit expensive but worth it to buy because of the benefits that we can get from eating it. It is healthier than buying fatty foods. From now on I have to love eating fruits and make it a habit to eat fruits right after every meal time. You too can make it a habit to have a healthy living lifestyle. Let’s all be healthy, eat lots of fruits now!

My love for kids

My passion to be with kids started when I was young. I love to play the role of a mother every time my friend and I are playing. I like to take care of them, get them dressed and fed them even it is just an imaginary one. It was because of my mother’s teachings. I remember my mother loves to dress my sister and I like a doll. And also she loves to sew us a dress. Those scenes made a mark in my mind and always think that one day I can do that to my own kids. An out of nowhere dreams for a six years old kid right? But that was how I think back then.

Those memories are still intact in my mind up to now that I am a bit older. At present I am taking good care four kids. My brother’s and sister’s kid. They are messy and hard headed but I have the patience because kids are like that. The thing that would make me angry is when they are fighting. I really do not like seeing them fighting. Yes, they are child and that is normal but I do not like them to fight. As much as possible I want them to love one another because they are siblings. My sister’s son is just nine months old and not making a mess yet. These four kids make me so busy each day, but I love to be with them because they make me smile. They are funny at times and that what I like about them. Seeing them growing each day and their developments each day is a treasure.
