- I got a new assignment at work and it took me by surprise. It has been less than 3 months that I got back to work after taking almost 4 months of maternity leave. It is a new position in the organization and I had to learn a lot really fast. I was expecting that the manager will give me 6-12 months to get used to the job, the culture, the projects, the people before giving me real responsibilities that need to be handled all by myself. Well… I was wrong, or I performed better than I and they expected because I got a new assignment (a new country) to be responsible of. I’m super excited about it. The country is really interesting to work on, the team is amazing and excited about me joining them. I’m looking forward to contribute my knowledge to make it a better country.
- Food highlight of the week: sweet & sour tempeh with veggies from the petit macro
served with french lentils with millet
and with shiritake noodles
- On Friday, after 2 hours of waiting at the post office to apply passport for Sofia, the girl took a great nap on the carseat. Sofia behaved really well during the wait. She’s easy to be entertained on mama’s lap, sitting on the counter playing with post it, or simply “inspecting” every corner of the post office.
I like the book a lot. It opened my eyes on how to parent without being harsh but teach them life skills such as how to face failure, how to be responsible, how to self-discipline, etc. The book has two parts. The first past gives an overview of the philosophy of Love & Logic parenting. Then the second part gives specific advises on different situations: bed time, doing housework, personal finance, fights with other kids, manners, etc. I already told Star that he has to read it as soon as he comes back because I think it’s important that both parents are on board on a method in order for it to success.
Q: What’s your parenting style? or how were you raised? do you wish you were raised different?
