This blog has seen through my worst days. I started blogging in 2008, when my head could just explode trying to remember things I'm doing for my child. Come 2009, I decided to spice up my boring day job, by:
Working and back to being on-call
Studying and taking exams
Having worked a regular 8-5 job (with occasional extended hours clinic which means working till 10pm), it was a huge change as I had to start work earlier than 8am, and often leave after 5pm. All these means less hours at home. Of course the days that I'm on-call, the weekends that I'm on-call or have group discussion: all meant that less time was spent with my family. Blog was neglected too.
We were having a serious presentation but smiled for the camera anyway.
Exam was hell. Us: being transported to HUSM.
This year, the shock came. In between studying, exams, working, Arianna has not been at par with her speech. The warning sign came at 2 years old. With referral from our regular paediatrician, we went to another developmental paediatrician.
This year also saw Arianna starting montessori and speech therapy. She's been in school past few months and we're into the second month of speech therapy. I haven't blogged anything on those, but I should. Only that time is never there.
Simplicity is the key to get her to concentrate on the one-to-one therapy.
Concentrating on her work at school.
So I guess the juggling act continues. It's even harder for me now. Exams are looming, but hours spent with her has shown results. I've got to sacrifice my own studies as I believe early education is most vital for my child.
You know how people think kryptonite has special powers for Superman? Do you think molybdenum/technetium nuclear stuff will make me a: SUPERMOM?? Hehe I refuse to give up, and will continue to be a supermom. Wish me luck for my exams (and exams and exams and exams till I finish my masters and become a specialist)
