As I think over the last year that we’ve spent with you I’m forced to admit that it hasn’t been the easiest. Three kicked our asses and was by far more difficult than two. Maybe because you two are so much more verbal and have very specific ideas about the way things should be. It’s incredible hard for me especially when your Dad’s away for a lot of time. But despite the hard time I also enjoy spending time with both of you. I enjoy taking you to the Kindy twice a week, and so far you two really love Kindy, there would be always new things that you’ve learned or made at Kindy that you were so excited to show or tell me. And I’m as excited as you are to learn new things from other Mums that I met through Kindy. Also I enjoyed the volunteering work I did in your class.I was helping the teachers for two hours in your class, that way I could see with my own eyes how you two were doing in Kindy, how you two played with others or listened to your teachers. And it’s amazing me that you are such a good pupils!
Nathan and Dylan, you are unlike any other kid I’ve known, you two are more challenging, more stubborn, often more cantankerous. And often I feel that I’m not a good mother for you two, as I don’t have lots of patients as other Mums have, and I’m trying so hard not to scream back to you. You have to know that I’m really not very happy with that behaviour of mine and every day, every day, I’m still learning to be a better person and decent mother to both of you. Being a parent is a hard work, there are no real roles, you just plug along and do what works.
