Colors On A Gloomy Day


Its so gloomy outside so we thought of bringing our own (neon green) color. Writing random things while going out is normal with this one. And isnt that notebook's color amazing? But I have to admit not enough to add color to a gray spring morning.

Mini Beast

This morning my son and I had been fighting, like yesterday. See our house is actually a bedsit, (about) 3mx3m room that really gives us real cabin fever. Its time for us to have a walk outside otherwise we would never stop fighting. And outside we go!  I didnt No one slipped this time too! And the wind is more bearable so we stayed longer at the seafront. Our walk is not a hurried one like the last Beast from the East. We actually linger to enjoy the view. Just look at Brean Down dusted with white snow!

Sebastian is happy and free outside and loves chasing birds.

Make Your Mama Proud

This one has made me so proud last Sunday and he doesn't even know it. While playing with a friend in the playground they hit their heads together and their faces almost touch. My son said to his friend while laughing 

Hey you need to ask permission before you can kiss me!

Its so innocent and the girl just laugh while holding her head as well. They really bumped their heads hard! And they moved to the next play equipment together. And I am so proud that he is applying consent even at the playground. I would always tell him about asking first before he can play, share his food, hold hands, kiss and hug someone. And that before someone can do this to him they need to ask him first.

Being in a relationship like mine, the last thing that I want my son to be is someone who force himself to people. And being in a time where #metoo is being discussed a lot, it is imperative for me to teach my son consent this early until it became his normal. And I think that the event last Sunday proved that it is working.

Teaching consent to a child is a long process. I know that I need to continuously teach and remind him about it. And I wont stop telling him that he needs to ask for a yes or no and it is okay to say no or yes himself.

Marti

My son is now 7 years old and will be 8 this June. He is slowly moving from Cbeebies to CBBC. We dont have a TV for about 2 years (someone gave us one few months ago). But we always watch from our ipad mini before that. CBBC is an amazing channel. My son always love their shows there and I feel better because I know nothing in there is bad for my son. 

Creeped Out is one of the shows that we watched together because its a kids horror show. He is not scared of it but I just want to be there when he watch it as I feel better. I could be there to hold his hand when the scenes are tense.

But when we need to watch one episode it gave me real fear.

Marti episode from Creeped Out is about a girl being controlled by her phone. At first the smartphone named Marti (as I supposed like Siri) helps her be the coolest girl in school. Then suddenly Marti starts to make request, then the request turns to commands. She needs to do whatever the phone asked her or otherwise the phone can destroy her life by showing Marti made up videos and text messages that can be sent to his friends. So the school girl followed Marti's every request losing her friends, their trust and being isolated in the process. In the end she escaped Marti. Or did she?
