Wow – didn’t realise how sending my 2 children away with their father for a few weeks would cause a stir with some sisters! But to be quite frank, there are bigger things to worry about in the world!
I have found out who the ‘anonymous’ sister is who posted the original comment as I simply clicked on the IP number you get when you receive comments and it was identical to a comment a sister made in her real name and email address. So mystery solved lol!
Anyway, moving on as it really was getting a bit silly – my kids are fine alhamdulillah. I spoke to them both today and they’ve been digging up insects, visiting family (must link this to Islamic Studies for R when she comes back about the importance of keeping ties of kinship), surrounded by animals. I sent R with 6 novels thinking that it might be too much. She said she’s onto her fourth one already (they’ve only been gone a week!) so am slightly concerned my little bookworm will run out of books to read.
Z spoke to Y on the phone today and couldn’t stop laughing as Y babbled away. Z was then very quick to tell me about the different sweets he has been receiving from family members!
So, all in all looks like they are having a great time mashaAllah- its me who is feeling it especially at night 😦
Been reading up a lot on Montessori and really feel its the way to go with the boys inshaAllah. I do feel boys learn differently to girls and so I’m going to try it out properly and see how it goes. The Montessori method really is very interesting especially for Ages 2-6.
Just trying to see if I can create a Montessori space at home but can’t seem to find a good place for the activities. Trip to Ikea I think is in order…
Jzk to all my lovely sisters for their kind comments. May Allah help us all on the journey of motherhood and Home ed – not an easy one. We’ll all make mistakes. What I’ve learnt though is that instead of being so quick to judge and criticize other Mothers we should really be focussing on whats going on in our own homes and how we can improve as mothers and home edders. May Allah guide us all. Ameen.
