Note to Self – Take it Easy and Suck it Up

So, my Tres Marias have started schooling. In fact, they have been in school for almost three weeks now. Yana is now in Grade 1 and Yza and Ysha are in Kindergarten… and most of the time, I think I’m in the brink of having a nervous breakdown of some sort.

The culprit – over fatigue and toooooooo much stress. It is hard to take care of three kids who are in school while also doing the household chores, taking care of a toddler (my 18-month old Biboy), and also working on my apps (and my blogs every now and then).

It is hard to prep the kids for school, wash and iron their uniforms (and socks), teach them their lessons and help them do their assignments and projects while also trying to ensure that I finish doing what I’m supposed to be doing for the SoapboxSketcher project, and also playing Yaya to Biboy and ‘managing’ the home.

But hey, I am doing the best that I can. Maybe I should just get used to it. Maybe I just need time to suck it up and deal with it. Haaaaaaaaaay. I should also probably take it easy and I should put less pressure on me and my kids when it comes to their school work.
