60 holidays are behind me.
hindsight — i wanted to do more with the sons –but my planning cramps their style;
2. also i plan exhaustively i am left with zero energy for execution — not smart.
3, which brings me to the spot. must do much more, during school days…
looking back, i give myself a ‘can do better’ report card, with a grade of B minus — as far as ‘mothering with an eye on improving allround personality development’ went.
[a few times, i hid behind a pg wodehouse when i was supposed to mother. just being honest.]
I got an A in cooking – no eating out except for our 10-day vacation — fresh homecooked meals, everytime — no bread and no cereal.
[of course, the kids yearned for bread and cereal and gorged like hungry birds at ma’s ]
i got a D MINUS in lazing. but it’s only expected. lazing works better in schooldays. Today i might get an A.
