My Scooter Boy

A boy and his scooter. #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #boy #son #childhood #scooter #marinelake #water #horizon #sunset #mbloggers #blogger #ukparentbloggers

Since the day that I shared to people what we are going through, help started pouring.
Small act of kindness that though at first I am hesitant to accept.
I have accepted nonetheless. And I am so glad I did.
I am now reaping the fruit of the kindness that was extended to me by so many random mothers.

I am now working as a cleaner at a church near where I am.
Though the money is not big it is regular and we are really far from where we are few months ago.
And I remember worrying where to get food and looking as being a beggar as an option.
Now I have extra money and I can buy food and even vitamins for my son.
I can also buy books and materials for my watercoloring hobby.
Activities that helps me find my old self and survive the situation where I am in.

I am so greatful. I can neve thank them enough.


I have Mommy guilt because work has affected my son's schooling, I am giving myself a chance to sort everything.
We are still trying to get use to routines and it might have affected my son's reading and learning.

But I know in time we will get it right and he will go back to his usual self.

I have confidence because not only do I have support of friends, I have the support of my son.

As I told you before, he is ever patient in waiting for me to finish my job.
Accompanying me on days that he has no school and I need to attend to my cleaning.
I have never once heard him complain. He never threw a tantrum.

I am always thinking that I am not lucky with men. They always give me pain, suffering.
Even my father.
And then I realized that I am actually blessed.

My son.

A boy, male. Supportive of me in every way.
Loving me in spite of all my imperfections.

I think I can full this mothering thing of.

Son is my word of the week.

Your son is so lucky to have you. He sounds like a delightful boy and that is down to how you've raised him and the strong relationship that you have. You draw strength and love from each other #wotw

Sometimes it is easy to overlook what we already have. Your son sounds like he is growing up to be kind, considerate and patient. The rate of learning goes up and down at this stage. I know I've kicked myself for taking my eye of the ball before. I'm sure he will be fine. #wotw

I am so pleased to hear you are in a better situation, small things make a huge difference. It will definitely help your son once the routine is established and he will catch up and be more confident knowing his mum is in a happy place too. Your boy sounds such a special little boy, you should be so proud of him X #wotw

I'm so happy to hear that you are in a much better place. It's natural to feel guilty but remember everything you do is to give him the best life you possibly can and he will know that. You are one strong lady x #WotW
