So much in my life has changed since my last blog. I started the job in childcare and quit less than a month later. I have a boyfriend now and his children are growing on my heart the more time I spend with them. I have chosen a career path (or rather it has chosen me) and I have goals that I am working to achieve.
Now on to why I decided to write. Classics versus new school. Oldies versus newbies.
As I am currently “sitting” with my boyfriend’s children I was figuring out what to do with them. His youngest wanted to play a game. Since I’m not into game systems like that and my child is only 3 all I have on deck is Nintendo. I’m not talking N64, Nintendo DS, or any of that fancy stuff. I mean Nintendo. See image below.
Of course my system still half works. Meaning, it works when it wants to work. So after failed attempts I got Duck Hunt to work, Yoshi, and then the system gave me a big middle finger and refused to get past the blinking purple screen. Oh well. My attempt to entertain children between the ages of 3 and 7 failed tragically. I tried. Parenting multiple children has presented challenges that I never imagined would come so quickly in my life. I often refer back to the fact that GOD doesn’t put more on us than we can bear.
In this moment, I’m asking GOD if HE’s sure… lol. My child being the youngest likes to be the baby of the group. Since he is the only child he is definitely having problems sharing and adapting to more children being around. Sometimes he does great, other times we all need a time out. I’m old-fashioned though so I don’t believe in giving up. Just taking things one day at a time. Until next time…. Just a glimpse into my crazy life. More to come, I guarantee!!!
