When he made us lose our patient…

JL had this ‘tidak apa’ (don’t care) and lay back attitude that really made us lose our temper. Last weekend was one of the worst weekends where he got the most scolding and canning from PaPa especially. Sometimes we just did not know whether he could not hear or just ignore when we called him. He also took extremely long time to complete his work. If he sat down and focused, it would be completed fast knowing his capability.

He just decided to take his extremely slow and sweet time causing all our plans to go out to get things either postponed or cancelled. When we asked him (after a few times), he was able to answer what he did was wrong but he kept repeating the same mistakes. Sigh… sigh…
He would even take long time just to complete one page of work and that time he decided to sleep without completing the work. Then next morning, he would just refuse to finish up the one page work before going to kindy or even when he arrived kindy early also he refused to take time to finish up. He ended up just passing up his undone homework book to his teacher.

Mummy facing stress both at work and at home with now pimples really conquering over Mummy’s face that might need acne medication. For the past few days, Mummy had bad sore throat and nose congestion. Yesterday onwards, Mummy lost Mummy’s voice. Sigh… sigh…

PaPa and Mummy hated the idea to shout, scold and cane him. Mummy really ran out of idea and now trying another trick this week which we hoped it would work, plus also with more prayers to God for wisdom and guidance.

Mummy… breathed in and out…relax…relax….

Boys are generally like that, take their own sweet time to do things.

This is quite common for boys. Mine also like that, now at Primary school even worse, he will just wait until the sky turn dark to do his homework, sigh. But at this time he can do it much faster than in the afternoon.
