Today is officially the last day of my week off, well..the way I had put that made it seemed like I was on a holiday. Come Sunday, I will resume my task as a working Mum and an English teacher to a handful of rowdy, mind-wrecking, humorous and sweet students.
It has been almost a month that I haven't stepped foot in school beginning with Khalida's surgery, then another week post-operation and lastly, this whole week attending to her who has been down with ILI and bronchiolitis. What makes me hate going back to work is not the impending tasks to gobble me down but the fact that I would no more be there for my kids as much as I have been recently. I enjoy very much the hectic life of mommy-hood; cooking in the morning, sending child number 1 to school, fetching child number 2 from school, force feeding child number 3 with a whole load of medicine (if only medicine were used to force feed ducks, guess Khalida would be a candidate for foie gras then..) then sending the first 2 for Koranic classes etc etc..The most noticeable difference with me being around at home is that they seem much happier and I am more attentive to the stories they need to tell me and I spend more time assisting them through homework because previously, I would pretend to listen as I was hectic from school and thinking of what to teach during the night classes.
Now, come Sunday, it will all return to norm and that is why I hate to go back to work..
Who would want to leave this bunch for work????
This is nothing but my plain ramblings for today..
