I hurry to the next room to find one boy crying and the other boy with a toy sword, the weapon of the hour, on his hand.
He started it!
The other boy tearfully counters, He hit me first!
Don’t believe him. He’s lying!
This goes on for the next few minutes, with no sign of relenting from both sides.
The story of my life.
A Mom of Preschoolers
Being a mom (of preschoolers now) means dealing with these on a daily basis, the fighting, the bickering, the he-started-it-first. At times they resolve it all on their own, many times the referee has to step in. Being a mom at this stage also means stepping up the effort on teaching, what with tiger moms constantly parading their kids’ achievements in front of your face. Yes, yes, we get it, your child’s the first in everything and we’re just mere mortals. Being a mom at this stage also means taking proper care of everyone’s health because with kids being in school, catching sickness is as natural as breathing.
Whew, the stress!
On the bright side, being a mom at this stage is also a treasure of memorable and cheerful moments. It’s a fun stage where the kids are learning and exploring. It’s hard to focus on just a single event (because there are just so many!) so I’ll just list a few of the most memorable ones.
Cheers of Everyday
1. When they make funny faces.
2. When you saw them perform onstage for the first time.
3. When you see them at play.
4. When he made you proud by walking by himself down the aisle.
5. When he’s old enough to know what he wants.
6. When he just can’t stop laughing. 🙂
Stressful as it is, I wouldn’t want to miss these cheerful moments of their childhood. Speaking of cheers, have you heard about Cheers?
Yes, those in the bright colored packaging inside my grocery cart. 🙂
Cheers offers a wide range of table napkins and kitchen towels for your picnic and party needs. It’s my personal choice whenever we’ll have guests over or simply for our own use at home. They’re big and thick, not the kind that you throw away after just one wipe. Plus, it’s made from 100% virgin pulp so I can be sure that it’s free from artificial whiteners and elemental chlorine ensuring the safety of my family and our guests.
Oh yes, about my hoard in the previous photo… We’ll be having a party at home this coming Holidays so I’m stocking up already. Yey, more cheerful moments to make and treasure with the kids! 🙂
Happy Cheers Holidays ahead! 🙂
