A little bit of sunshine and fresh air

It’s not easy being a stay at home mother. You’ll need strong mental health to survive. Staring at the 4 walls with never ending chores everyday can drive anyone crazy. I had it tough when I first gave up my job to be a SAHM but I am all good now. I know what to expect and my mind is ready for it. BUT I still have my down and crazy days especially on those rainy evenings when we are unable to go out to the playground. I need my daily sunshine and fresh air and if it rains 3 days in a row, Darling will come home to a ‘black face’ me. On days like that, he’ll try to bring us to the mall or somewhere else for a breather.

Today is a good day. The weather is just perfect. Ayden and I went to the playground to be greeted by this:
playground fun

A naked half ball. 

We did not think much about it and immediately started kicking it.

And spent the entire evening kicking it everywhere.

Such a simple thing is capable to keep my little one occupied for at least an hour.

And with both of us busy running after and kicking it, I’ve worked out enough sweat to pump myself up. I went home all happy and energized for my tuition class after dinner.  I wish everyday is a good weather day especially in the evenings :)

    Was that a sponge or half a loaf of bread? If it’s the latter, hope nobody eats it after that! LOL!!!

    Look like a big ball of sponge to me! I do not mind such workout too. ^^

    Yes it can be quite a stress to stay at home. Some days I still feel a bit crazy but tried not to think about it. Jamie keeps me occupied and think less. But I do go out yum cha with friends, find my mum for breakfast and do marketing. Cannot stay at home all the times!

    That second picture, Ayden looks very cool. Like Ronaldo aiming the ball up before running towards it and kick. :D

    Spending time outdoors with the kiddos sure can release a bit of stress. :)

    I wonder what the naked half ball started out life as? Basketball? Football?

    The ball looked very well use! Haha. Yea, cannot keep staying at home and face the walls. I find going out for some fresh air helps to clear the mind. Nice to have Ayden keeping you company!

    Ayden is going to grow up to be a footballer!
