I am somewhat relieved that since school commenced, my sons are occupied with a lot of other activities so there's less time for TV and Nintendo DS. They understand Mummy's rules, school days very limited TV time and NO DS! Weekends only. I am glad for the past 2 weeks, my rules were obeyed.
For Azfar, his school ends at 2 pm and on certain days 3 pm. He reached home at around 3 pm or 4 pm. Once he got back, change clothes then it's makan time. He will relax, usually by playing snake & ladder (he he) or playing with his keyboard. At 5 pm to 6 pm, it's tutorial time with Mummy. We will do some worksheets either Maths, BM, English or Science or just Art. At 6 pm he will play outside with his brothers for half an hour. At 6.30 pm, mandi time. Maghrib time, solat together and baca Quran. By 8 pm, have dinner (usually very light meal, sometimes only a glass of milk) . By 9 pm, bedtime.
For Ammar & Adam, kindy starts at 8.30 am and they will reach home at 12 noon, certain days at 2 pm if they have Iqra' lessons. Once home, change and makan. They watch a little bit of TV and play together or kacau Mummy in the kitchen/study. Ammar joins Azfar at 5 pm to 6 pm for tutorial time with Mummy. He will do some writing work, some fun Maths, English and BM, individual reading or Art. Adam usually plays with BabyAzan and Bibik during this hour, sometimes he will demand to enter the study room so I will give him some coloring to do or play with puzzles/lego 'quietly' or else out he goes.
They seem comfortable with this routine. And so am I. Weekends they are allowed to play with their NDS or PS2. They look forward for the weekend family outing too. I, on the other hand, look forward to a day of not having to cook he he. Sample other people's cooking la pulak kan.
Oh yes, come February Ammar's Taekwondo training will resume. Saturday mornings from 9 - 10 am. Azfar is taking silat this year hehe. He looks really good in the all black uniform. I puji my children too much. Oh well, typical of a mom I guess.
Ahhh, but u don't want to hear my leterens to them kan, who wants to blog about that?
