I have enrolled myself in a homeschooling training organised by Teach Asia in Singapore. Their program is ACE curriculum which I have heard about but never really seen or attended their training. This is my first time attending a training organised by them.
Both the children, Joel & Ethaniel is at home with the maid & Dad for two weeks. My first time leaving home without them or hubby. My Israel trip in April 08 paved the way for me... and them getting used to me going away. I recently read a book that said "Motherhood is a temporary job and not an identity". I laughed! Its time I learn to let go... but they are just 6 and 11 years old.... Anyway.
I must say that it feels awfully strange sitting on the flight without knowing the person beside me. Usually its my little Ethaniel or Joel. A good looking Indian guy sat beside me and I said "Hi". That was the conversation for the whole 2 hours trip. His body odour cum cologne was killing me!!
I called the children at home and spoke to them for almost 20 mins.... just checking on what they are doing... Its nice to hear their voice.
Not only children goes through stages in their lives... so does Mothers.
