I cannot believe that I’ve actually slept today without waking up in the middle of the night. I guess I was exhausted but on the other side its good with a little rest. I did not have enough these days and I still need to keep my fighting spirit up. The last 30 days has been filled with many challenges and confusions especially for Austin and Aaron. I had to gather the last piece of energy yesterday and decided to take them out. They were eager to go to the Maritime Museum. We made a stop at McDonalds first.
Of course a little bit of plastic was definitely more interesting than the food 😂 … But somehow we managed to leave after 1 hour, happy and few pounds heavier.
Aaron and Austin were happy to look around the museum. They even found a place where they could play.
Them being happy despite the circumstances we adults are in is probably the greatest gift a parent can get. I would feel totally devastated if I would be the reason behind tears.
The visit did not last long. They got pretty much bored running around so I’ve decided to use that energy and take a walk back to Stockholm City. This was the first time they walked 3 km with me. Austin got pretty much exhausted and fell asleep as soon as I put him in the stroller. Aaron still had some energy and took a last picture with the lion statue .
But well…even the most energetic child gets tired…
Any last words?
Well… if you want to teach your kids something and want them to explore all sides of life go to museums, theaters, cinemas. Spend time with them. Having parents involved in their activities will make them grow into independent individuals. They will be more expressive and willing to challenge their boundries. If you like taking walks like me, take your kids with you. Aaron and Austin became very innovative on the way. They used the street lightening and benches to create a game where they collected points by running and touching them.
I have just started an intensive week. Work + studies. But I do not feel discouraged. Beside that I have some motherly duties to focus on. My baby Aaron is growing so fast. He will attend elementary school from August 2023. What comes with that? A lot of new challenges.
My son had quite a difficult start in life. Moving around, getting sick often, then me and his dad divorced, new people arrived into our life’s. I am aware it has been tough on him with so many changes. He needs a lot of care and understanding. Especially when it comes to boosting his self-confidence which he is short of in the area of learning.
My kids has been growing up with technology quite a lot due to my studies and covid19. Thus, it has affected the way they think and feel about necessities of life like reading and writing. Simply giving instructions on how to do does not seem to give effect which makes me to try new ways to approach the issue.
Yesterday, we had tried to write on paper and in a book especially made for preschoolers. The first letters “A” went well but as Aaron’s dad was watching I think our babies confidence went down. He did not want to continue anymore.
I’ve decided to take a different book out to make it more playable and less scary for him. He was more pleased by writing a small “a” than the bigger one. He was very confused as well by there are three different ways of writing “A“. We repeated the whole alphabet and will continue to do so. At preschool they do have some training in this area as well, thus it has become important to continue at home. I’ve pronounced the words in Swedish and Aaron pointed with his finger which one of the pictures illustrates it. We did an exercise of finding the sound “a” in the words. It can be quite tricky when you pronounce letters differently in Swedish and much differently in English but I believe that I’ve given birth to an amazing and talented boy.
As writing and reading letters in a book felt a little overwhelming, I’ve opened the computer and found a nice website for kids with games and different interactive ways of learning. Aaron has a highly developed visual-spatial intelligence like me thus I believe he will learn the fastest while being creative. Colors and space for expression are very important.
What made this interactive game very nice was that my son could click on the letter and he could hear how to pronounce the letter. I’ve noticed that he knows letter “A” very well as well as letter “O“. We will still practice though so that he can be more confident about his abilities.
In case you also would like to spend some time teaching you child about the alphabet or numbers, the website which I found so great is http://www.abcya.com . You can find there everything for kids from preschool up to grade 6. Isn’t that amazing?
Thank you for reading ! See you soon again with some amazing post! ❤
It’s been a while since I wrote anything on the topic of astrology but well… you even stagnate while learning sometimes. In the recent month’s I’ve taken more interest in Varshphal. That is yearly horoscope or differently called solar return. And so I dig a little and found out that every planet has an maturity age and by the end when they reach maturity some events connected to these planets will take place. But before I jump into analysis of my birth chart let me tell you when each planet matures.
Jupiter matures at the age of 16. It is believed that at that time humans have already created a set of principles and a belief system which they follow through out life. As Jupiter represents wisdom as in education , husband for a girl and children as well as religion and travel, some events connected to the significance of Jupiter will take place between the age of 15 and 16.
Sun matures at the age of 21. As it stands for authority, recognition and career between 20 and 21 we should be able to choose our career path. We could get our first job or be rewarded for something we did. As Sun stands for father too, something related to your father could take place.
Moon matures by the age of 24. By that time one should have gained mental stability and show signs of a mature mind. Moon stands for mind, home, mother, family, nourishment thus something connected to these should take place. Maybe you will purchase your first apartment? For that you will need to check planet placement in your birth chart.
Venus matures at the age of 25. Between 24 and 25 we could meet our partner or we could have a lesson about love and relationships. By that time we should be mature enough to lead a one to one relationship.
Mars matures at the age of 28, which means that between the age of 27 and 28 you will take action towards something or the opposite, you may lose courage, depending on house placement and planets surrounding mars. By the age of 28 we should have grown enough to understand how we can control our anger and how to use the energy for our benefit.
Mercury matures at the age of 32. As it’s a planet of communication and business by that time something related to our communication like planning , organising , leadership may take place but does not have to. It could be related to writing as Mercury ruled Gemini represents hands or something analytical as Mercury is ruling the sign of Virgo as well. If you are a scientist, it could mean that you will reach a new level when it comes to your career or you could get a reward or a degree . As with the other planets, placement such as house, planets sitting around Mercury and lord placement of that house should be checked for getting a clear idea about the event that will take place between 31 and 32. As Mercury stands for siblings too, something related to your younger siblings could take place.
Saturn matures at the age of 36. As it’s about responsibility and duty in our life, an event that will will happen by the age of 35 and 36 will require greater maturity and the willingness to serve our karma. By that time we will be aware of our duties and responsibilities towards others.
Rahu matures at the age of 42. By that time Rahu loses its strength and a person is able to let go of their illusions and become aware of the fact that money is not all the happiness in the world.
Ketu matures at the age of 48. By the age of 47 and 48 one should know their spiritual path and come to a realisation that clinging into people or things does not serve any purpose. It could be a time when one gets detached from the world.
So finally 😂 let me tell you what happened to me. And you can practice using my birth chart.
Between age of 15 and 16, I’ve decided to study textile design in high school and I’ve got an award for my achievements at school.
Between age of 20 and 21, many things happened. I had to grow up and master the courage to save my relationship and so my kids dad came to Sweden and we moved to another place. I’ve also decided that I want to pursue a career where I can be creative and give service.
Between the age of 23 and 24, I’ve pursued higher education at university. I’ve also became a mother during that time and had to learn to handle the pressure of home and school and all the criticism that I’ve gotten from my classmates for having children.
Between the age of 24 and 25, it’s said in 2018/2019, I’ve gone through a transformation and I’ve got a few lessons connected to marriage and relationships. I’ve started also to gain more knowledge about astrology. For me that was a big boom 💥. I felt like I was floating in the air. Everything I knew felt so unrealistic. I’ve decided to divorce during that time as well and I made it before my 26th birthday.
Between 27 and 28 I’ve actually remarried. Why? Karma is a bitch 😅 and I guess divorcees with kids are hot. Mars is in 7th house and 7th lord is in 7th house too. Mercury which also resides in in 7th house stands for contracts/written agreements and so I did nikah at the court.
I am 28 right now + 3 months 😂 . And I am super excited for what Mercury will give me at 32. But as Mercury is in 7th house I hope next step will be business, not a divorce. I am not so sure though when it comes to the events connected to Saturn at 36. At 42, I suspect my mother will get sick or I will have a big argument with my husband. At 48 I suspect Ketu will either give me a good position at work or will make me away from everything that has to do with materiality. There could be something related to death too.
Wow! It’s been so refreshing sharing something new with you. Soon I’m gonna start my own channel on YouTube where you will be able to discover yourself a new together with me 🌟.
