What a windy day. The kids had so much fun trying to fly with the wind.
Did you realize the pandemic kids have learnt one beautiful lesson throughout this whole ordeal?
That they will never overlook the simple things of life – like the strong wind on your face! The fresh beach air. Simple outdoor fun with your sibling
We lament our kids are missing out on their school and social activities. Maybe, just maybe they are learning to be grateful and mindful. Maybe this experience of staying at home and social isolation is teaching them too…in ways we never thought about!

First day of school, the pandemic style
Can’t believe we are doing online-first-day-of school still again this year too.
Still cant digest the fact that my little baby girl is going to grade1.
The thing is, I still remember my first day of school in MES in 1994. I remember my dad dropping me in 1-G. I remember the class, the teacher and the students!
The thing is that is how it the first day of school should be in our thoughts- A vivid memory! Not yet another day at home when your mom wakes you up early for you to sit in front of a screen and see stranger faces!

Mama, The book has such a nice smell!’
She utters as she skims through her new books.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
I loved the smell of new school books. I loved reading the books before the beginning of the academic year.

Trying to keep her busy while the elder one has her virtual classes! (Sneaky way of making her do my pre ramadan prep!)

I am also attending Qatar History class with her. QH is now a compulsory subject from Grade 1 onwards. It wasn’t part of the curriculum when I was in school. Hence, I am learning along with her!

Done with the first week of virtual classes and I am really exhausted – rather that would be an understatement. I am running like a headless chicken with the online classes, house chores and the deep cleaning I want to finish before Ramadan, all while not allowed to go outside. The brunt of this pandemic is borne by the mothers, I say!
Want to see the highlight of my day? I got this magic eraser! Yay! It will aid in my deep cleaning. If you haven’t used it ever, check it out. Such an amazing thing for all spots and oily marks in the kitchen. They are also available on Amazon.
How has your week been?
