I may be closing the door to my past, but I won’t forget all the lessons, the good and the bad, the people, and of course, my students who added colours to my life as a teacher.
Nothing’s really changed. I am just returning to the person I used to be. Being a full-time mom once again entails considerable effort! Coming back to a new world is like a female version of Rip Van Winkle, who had slept a great deal and was awaken by now teenage kids.
Here is what has been happening in my home 🙂
I drifted slowly to sleep. It was all so peaceful and quiet. Not a sound could be heard. Suddenly, a knock on the door cracked the tranquility. I woke up and tried to find out what racket was going on downstairs.
I saw mom opening up the door for the delivery man. Looks like mom ordered a new laptop. I went back to my bedroom and fell asleep. I was up by the crack of dawn. I went downstairs and saw my little brother eating pancakes for breakfast. I sat with him and ate. I asked my little brother if he wanted to play basketball with me. He agreed. Soon, we were trying to snatch the ball. Suddenly, we collapsed and the ball went flying into the living room and smashed mom’s new laptop! “Nooooooo!” I shrieked. I took the broken laptop and brought it up to my room. My brother accused me of breaking it. It is the other way around, the next second, we were in each other’s throats. Meanwhile, downstairs, my mom came back and saw the broken pieces of shattered glass. Mom was shocked. She also heard the two of us quarreling. Mom went to our bedroom and caught us red-handed.
A few minutes later, after some explaining and defending each other from mom’s wrath, we realised that a mistake was made and we owe each other an apology.
It took us time but we made peace the next morning over pancakes.

This is my brother Zack. What can you say about him?
Hi, I am Ethan . Here in my school, almost everyone wear glasses. Maybe kids play too much gadget that’s why their eyes are not sharp anymore. I don’t want to wear glasses because it will be heavy on my nose. Here’s an essay I wrote about playing too much gadget.
Why Too Much Playing gadget is bad for children.
Too much playing in the gadget is bad. You will also be addicted to the gadget and will never get high grades for all your school tests. Also, too much playing can damage your eyes.
I watched a video in school about a boy who keeps on playing in the gadget and gets low marks for his school tests that was a bad example. Sometimes you can play in the gadget but for a limited time.
I play gadgets but for a limited amount of time and only play during school holidays.
Remember playing too much gadgets can damage your eyesight.
