Tommie slept out last night. That’s not too bad but I hate having to get up and make my own coffee. Oh shut up. I’m spoilt that way.
We went to bed way too late last night, thanks to the prize-giving at school. The boys weren’t happy campers this morning.
We were locked inside our own yard, since my parents my parents, didn’t know that we don’t lock that gate. Huge rush and stress to find the key.
Jason left his school bag at my folks house last night, so we had to fetch it before school this morning, with a Zander still dressed in his pj’s.
As I turn towards school, I get this feeling that Jason has not yet brushed his teeth. yip…no proper teeth, so we turn around for him to brush them at my parent’s home.
By now Quintus is ready to kill irritated because he is going to be late. (which is not … yet)
I stop at the school and he lets Bella out of the car. Holy F**&^*cking shit! I just said, watch out that she doesn’t get out and then he pushes her out with his school bag! Thank goodness, she is very obedient and just stopped when I told her to.
I left the boys, not in a good mood.
As I drove Zander to school, I remember that the boys had no lunch box or tuck-shop money.
I stopped in front of Zander’s pre-school and remembered that he was supposed to be practising for their concert at a preschool and he was now late!
I got back to work, wrote Quintus a letter, put money in the envelope for the tuck shop and dropped it off at school.
Got back to work and got a call from the bank. Those calls are never good.
Found out about not-so-good news with a contract Tommie is busy with.
Come on night time. I want to restart today. Can’t say I was a supermom at all today. Not even close.
I am mom to three amazing boys Quintus (17), Jason (15) and Zander (11) and a much loved (foster) daughter Kyla (14).
They think I am supermom and that I have the ability to save their worlds. I will let them live in that fantasy world as long as possible....or as long as they will let me live there...
I have my own accounting practice. I share offices with my dad and even though to the outside world it seems confusing, it works out great for us.
Balancing a full-time job, homeschooling two of the boys and acting as stay-at-home mom isn't easy BUT we make it work.
We live in South Africa. A country that I love. A country of breath-taking beauty, diverse culture and shocking crime.
