I was on the Krokodyl facebook page today and saw a couple of pictures of Jakub from their school activities. I always appreciate seeing these photos since I am curious to know how my son is thriving in school. From the looks of it, he is having fun!
This is his “take-a-picture-of-me” photo.
And when I say he is a handful, this is what I mean.
It’s hard to keep him still, as he always wants to be on the move. Worst part is, he always wants to do what the bigger kids are doing….or the opposite.
Sometimes, he even wants to do what mama does to him.
Oh, this boy!
On another note, while I was on my way to pick him up from school this morning, I was wondering why people were looking at me like as if a nut fell out of my head. It was then when I realized that I was pushing an empty stroller. So those people may have passed me off as a looney.
Last Wednesday, Jakub and I went to the Kuliskov children’s play area in Prague to meet some friends. Since he doesn’t go to these places that often, Jakub was totally enthralled. On the train to Prague, it was quite difficult to keep him in his seat. Although not a very good idea, I allowed him to play with an mp3, if only to keep him still.
We met with 2 of my Filipino friends who are also married to Czech nationals. When we got there, Jakub totally forgot about me. He immediately rushed to the toys. I could leave him there and he wouldn’t mind.
It was very difficult to keep the children still. Thus, a group picture was close to impossible. This is the closest photo that I got with all 3 of them sitting still.
We tried placing them inside this enclosure, but look at what happens. Somebody always has to leave.
Raising a child is not easy. But it is always nice to know that one is not alone in this journey. The meeting went very well and I am hoping for future get togethers with more moms and their kids.
