Some of the many reasons..

why I haven't blogged much lately, or done much more than the really necessary:

1.Kids using computer: S's youtube channel (many sequels there).

2.Tiredness (Hz is sleeping pretty well again alhamdulillah, but neighbours alarm clocks going off at 5 a.m., and getting them ready for school mean rarely I can get up when my body feels ready). As Biryani often sleeps when I do (due to late afternoon naps which are almost impossible to avoid as she is also woken early by the morning rush.) So there is no 'kid-free time in the evenings to be online (she is still a tad adverse to me using the computer)

3.When Hz is awake he likes to be held much of the time, I'm not strong enough to use the sling much, so typing one handed is hard.

Did I day dream about putting them all in day-care? well yes for a second, but only for a second or so.
If I do get time I'm trying to be more regular with things like Quran and Arabic, trying being the operative word...
We have started having tick charts on the wall for the 2 older ones plus myself, and it really does help to focus and keep going with things (or show how we haven't and to try to buck up!). I keep remembering the essence of this hadith (Bukhari and Muslim) Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: "The best loved deeds to Allah are the ones that are continuous even if they are not very many."

The boys have had a look at S's videos.
I've thought about having a task sheet for myself too, have not done it yet!

emm..task sheet. i should have it as well. I'm very poor in following the sheet my self especially as I was feeling up and down.

Sending to day care? I had the feeling when my children were younger than now before. It's normqal feeling that come for a second or so!
