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.
Today was a day, busy and full of excitement. Me and kids made a spontaneous trip to Stockholm. The kids had so much fun but let me share with you some more details.
First of all, we went to have some lunch. The kids favourite is Happy meal because of the toy and the chicken nuggets. Aaron got something made out of paper but he was still happy, while Austin got a small owl mascot. On our way back Aaron saw a cow sculpture, it somehow caught his attention.
After that we went to buy some clothes and Aaron choose a toy and dress for “his” baby sister 😂. We still had some time left before we could enter the museum so we went to have some mango drinks and we had some cake.
Then it was time to head to the museum but we still got there few minutes before our booked time. So the kids decided to play outside.
Once we got inside the museum the kids went all “loco”. They were pressing buttons, running around, going inside tunnels and sliding down, playing games.
They drove a car.
Created their own game character 😅.
Played a virtual game.
They hit a bat.
And entered a colourful place with a lot of gamefication.
They were surrounded by a complete new world. And seeing them happy, makes me happy even though the adventure got more pricey than I excpected.
If you have children, taking them out to museum, theatre or cinema is the best learning experience a child could get.
Right now, I must admit I am “todmüde” 😂. See you tommorow !
The day of treat or trick has officially began last night and although no one knock on our door, it was quite spooky at night and no it’s not only because of our lights being turned off. It felt like our house was shaking, I got hit in the head by something small while trying to put my youngest to sleep and it felt like someone was trying to open the front door a few times. It was very foggy outside of our window and my son out of some reasons sees monsters in the darkness since two days (I remember how he used to talk to something at night when he was few months, a really creepy experience 😅). So maybe he actually got the access to the underworld aka other dimensions. And that wouldn’t surprise me. We are into occult, few generations back.
I always feel anxious around this time. It has to do with all the energies swaying around. I’m pretty sensitive and too much receptive to other peoples feelings and thoughts during this time. Having Sun in D1 and D9 in intuative signs just makes it worse. I feel kind of like a scanner and sponge on the same time.
Time around Halloween and All Saints Day is one of the time periods when I feel most spiritual. It feels like the gates between the living ones and the death ones are open. So I find shuffling my tarot cards as a must. And so I did this morning. And I did not like the outcome actually ; 10 of Swords fell out. This card symbolises betrayal, backstabbing, deceit and exhaustion. At once I saw face of my ex in my mind. The person that always puts me in situations where I don’t feel too well. And the astrological prediction states clearly that there will be danger from opposite sex. Nevertheless, got to stay positive during these depressing times.
I’m gonna upload another Tarot Card Year post later. Hope you enjoy this spooky time 👻. See you later my dear community at Shades of me 😉👌.
