My offspring, a.k.a. chunky butt, a.k.a. Sou sou is finally adjusting to the new home very well. Her two new favorate English words are Park and Beach!
She asks to go all the time, although I'd rather go to sleep or slump (im still sick).
I have been searching for a babysitter options and daycare providers since I came. Once she is finally enrolled inshallah (hopefully next week) it will be the first time in 2 years where I will not have to be a full time mother.....and although it is nervewrecking process to thrust her off without me by herself, I know I need this space and time to focus on moi.
Looking at my surroundings, I feel a bit anxious about her being raised in NY. There are kids her age and older who curse and fight. It seems their parents are no different. Just the other day I had to approach a young boy for the way he was talking to her...yeah I nipped that ish right in the butt!
Sou sou has always been gentle and affectionate. She assumes everyone is her blood family and ends up getting someone or another parent or child to play with her, pick her up and include her in their games. Most people are shocked how loving and attached she can get. I know I need to protect that quality in her and so I have been contemplating some overseas options for her education.
