No time to update the blog because of work. As much as I want to every night, I always end up sleeping earlier than I was supposed to. Just so I could update something new, here's a lovely photo of my boys during the latest family fun day. That's my dad, hubby and 3 boys. Before that perfect shot, there's ALWAYS chaos in my household. With silly boys around, it's no wonder. It also happens most of the time. So, I'm kind of used to it. Hehe. Have a great Thursday y'all.

We repeatedly change our kids' nannies for some reason or another but it isn't usually because of stealing. The usual reasons are excessive absences to a point that I take a day off from work to accommodate their extended day offs, laziness, frequent cash advances which is hard on the budget and worst, disliking my hyperactive eldest son and barking at him even when we're around. Out most recent nanny reacted when we complained that she's not cleaning the house enough. She fired back that we complain too much and that we better find someone else better. I did not hesitate to fire her, after all I cannot tolerate Miss Bossy Pants around the house anymore who was always glued to the TV watching Tagalog sappy films. Aaarrghhh!
Imagine my annoyance when I found out that I lost some of my clothes and the kids' clothes. And the suspect? The nanny next door. Gawd. I may not have a nanny who steals but I cannot believe that I can be a victim of someone else's maid. So the scenario is, our nanny hangs the clothes outside to dry and while she's inside watching her daytime soap operas, the nanny next door slips outside, chooses her pick (and mind you, she chooses the expensive ones) and shop galore. Since she lived within the area, I asked around and sure enough, the background check confirmed my suspicions. That next door nanny has indeed a history of stealing from her employers. We were not her employers and yet, she couldn't help herself. Since we have no evidence, I just observed her. One thing I did notice was that, every week, some of my clothes disappeared. Our nanny was so ignorant herself that she didn't noticed that some of the laundry were missing. Until, I couldn't take it anymore. We approached her and demanded she return my stuff and the kids' stuff also. She turned pale. To make things short, her mother went to her rescue and reported us to the brgy. Now that's funny! Ms. Sticky Fingers was so all over her crazy denial drama that she believed she can sue us and get away with it. To think that her employer returned some of our clothes hangers which she said were found in her nanny's room. She was given 10 days by the brgy to return our stuff or else we forward the case to the police. It has been 10 days and still, no word from the suspect or her blabbermouth mom. I think they just ignored the warning.
My point is, those were just material things. They can be bought and replaced but I want to teach that girl a lesson. She has been stealing money and other things from her previous employers and thinks karma and the law can't afford to touch her. She has also been arrogant all about it, calling us liars. I've been waiting for the go signal from the brgy and then we'll go to the police. I'm seriously wishing to wipe out that smirk from her face.

It’s been a long time since I last posted. I’ve been busy at work at home and in between. Yesterday was the first day of summer school for my 2 older kids. My 3 year old and 8 year old are both on a reading class with kids their age in preparation for the new school year on June. I thought I’m so over that jittery first day of school feeling. And I thought my worries over first day of school anxieties are long gone. I have no problems with my eldest son. Being older means he’s wiser and more responsible now than the previous years. He is now more focused and his attention span is better. My 3 year old, Kindergartener is more “allergic” to school than my 8 year old when he was his age. Monday upon arriving at the classroom, he suddenly threw a tantrum because I stopped him from opening the class closet full of toys. A moment later, he refused to sit on his own little chair and asked to be carried which is a tedious job by the way. When it came to the sing and dance activity, he covered both of his ears because he didn’t like the nursery songs. He only participated on the closing prayer. Perhaps he figured out it was time to go home. Tuesday, I had high hopes that today would be different. Wrong again! Hubby tagged along and we stood outside the classroom watching him from the outside. The second he sat on his chair, he opened his bag and started munching his snacks. After he was through, he carried his backpack, went outside directly to us, oblivious to the kids singing around him and asked to go home. We repeatedly led him back to his chair but unfortunately, he decided to stick to the door this time and refused to do board work. I’ve been hoping so bad the third day won’t be as bad as today. Let’s see tomorrow.. J
