|21-3-2010 - Things on my mind
||My mood while writing this blog:|
Yesterday (Sunday) we went to a Botanical Garden park. It was absolutely Beautiful! There were endless varieties of plants and trees. Little tracks all throughout the park, animals and Maze hedges (That the kids absolutely loves running through). It was so scenic and peaceful and I just felt so happy. Being there with my little family was so simple but so perfect at the same time. So for everyone like us who's doing it a bit tough in the financial department, I urge you to look around your local areas! There are some really nice things to see/places to go that wont put you out of pocket :)
The only not-so-great part about Sunday is when we were driving back. We were driving on the main road on the stretch back to our Suburb and to my horror I saw these little children playing right near the road, the gate to their home wide open. There were two little boys (About 2 and 3) and a little girl probably about 3 or 4.
The one year old was on this little push-bike backing up closer and closer to the road. I made my Husband slow down as we passed. As we kept driving I just could not get those kids off my mind. Unattended, playing RIGHT on the lip of a main road.
I asked my Husband to turn around and go back. Being the wonderful man he is he obliged. To my delight the children had gone inside. I could see them WAAAAY up the pack of the property. The gate was still wide open-I still feel like I should have gone back and closed it though :-(
I know I seem like a nagging nelly but the whole thing really upset me. If that kid had pushed back a little farther, if some one hadnt of been watching the road. That little life would have been gone forever. I just couldn't understand where the parents were and why that gate was open. Such a tradgic event could have happened so unecissarily.
Anyway, sorry about that but I had to get it off my mind.
On the upside things with Shaniya seem to be improving. Not at any amazingly fast rate but I definitely feel more Love and Respect coming from her for me and I'm returning it. I'm really proud of her. Especially when today she requested a soup I make, for lunch. It was one of the best compliments I think I have ever received. My picky-eater, my little Diva had specially asked me to make my soup for her. Between you and me Mumas I think I definitely had a little Ego swell! ;-)

- Monday, 22 Mar Yeah, you and your Diva looks as if yall are on the up and up. For the kids, last summer me and my cousin was driving and saw this 2 year old wandering towards the street. At first we thought that she was being looked after by a man who was looking out the window, but when she kept walking towards the street and he didn't say or do anything we pulled over. Well it just so happen that the mother was in the house getting dress while the kids where outside unattended. The neighbors even said that she always do that - leave the kids unattended and they go in the street. We let the mother who were a fairly young woman, but old enough know how dangerous it was to leave her 2 year old unattended. It's only by the grace of the Lord that they children did not get injured. CaraBella
- Sunday, 21 Mar OMG i would have freaked out if i saw that. I do not understand how parents can allow those kinda things to happen, you have to watch your kids every waking moment because you just never know. Im very proud of you for going back. Alot of people would have just kept going. Its so nice when your kids show you that you are appreciated, about 4 months back i made something (sad i cant remember, damn pregnancy brain) for dinner and my oldest son loved it sooo much. The next day he couldnt stop talking about it. That made me feel so freaking good. Glad to hear you had an awesome day. I wish we had stuff like that to do here.
