May Review

This week there have been a lot of occurrences going on around me. Some of them are stifling, some are fun. But from all them, I learned a lot about being a mother.

May review from motherhood today


The first was my son's graduation from Berklee College of Music. He graduated with 100% grade! My son is homeschooling, and he attended college at a young age. This is a good news! But at the same time, I introspect about how my accompaniment to him during the learning process. It turned out that my introspection resulted in a conclusion that I was not a perfect homeschooling mother. I still have much to improve even though my son graduated with a very satisfactory grade. Yes, I will fix this in his next lecture, in a more challenging lecture.
The second was on Tuesday, I was awakened by the sound of a very loud frog’s sound. I have never heard such a sound before. At first, I thought it was the sound of a heron. But after I listened more carefully, I was pretty sure it's the frog's voice. Then I opened the door and tried to find the frog, but I didn’t find it. Even so, I managed to record the beautiful voice, equipped with morning sounds in our home area: the sound of rooster and birds. Listen to the recording here:

And on this day I also heard about the public test of the Regulation of the Minister of Education and Culture of Indonesia. A few years ago I was an activist for homeschooling education in my country, but after a few incidents that made me feel annoyed, I decided to stop and leave the activity.

After one year passed, it turns out that a friend invited me to fight for the rule of homeschooling law in our country. Yet, now I am far from the capital of our country, and away from the big cities where important meetings are held to discuss state regulations. Then, what should I do? I do not know! I think I will fight again because I have started to fight for this rule to be abolished since the rule was designed about three years ago! For now, I decided to go with the flow, not as aggressive as the past time.
Here's my review in the two weeks of early May. I am a daughter, mother, wife, artist, crafter and type 1 diabetes, that's the main role I am in right now, I try to run it well and deliver happiness to my family.

Congrats to your son!
Being active in things you are passionate about is always a good thing.

As an artist and crafter, what kind of things do you create? That is cool how you included the morning sounds into your post.

Congratulations to your son on his graduation. My goodness, what a wonderful accomplishment. Your illusive frog made me smile. We have owls that hoot sometimes at night and I do the same things. Listen close and look to see if I'm able to see them in the trees (although I'm never able to)

I am so happy for your son's graduation and don't discredit yourself for raising a bright and successful young man. I also enjoyed the music

Sometimes our plate being a Mom can be so full but as a Mom we are bound to duties and responsibilities to our family and to ourselves too. Congratulations on your son's achievement! :)

We have much in common. My daughter and I have type 1 diabetes. I too homeschooled my children and had to fight some of our local laws and regulations! I wish you all the best and congratulations on your son's great accomplishment!
