Parenting Made Simple, Is There Any?

I was a little bit late to post this article. This should be published by this morning or afternoon, but here I am, still doing it up to this night.

I didn't mean to be late. It happened just because it should be. God's plan, I guess.
You might have known that I blog mostly with my cell phone. I enjoy this 3,5 inches flat thing. I have done this for 4 years with the same phone. I write, take and store pictures and do social media with it. In short, my virtual world is this small handy gadget.
I have written a draft for today's article using Memo, an app that's originally installed in this android phone. I looove this phone so much and so does my eldest son. Yesterday morning he cleaned the phone from anything that could be trashes. My son didn't know that by doing that he erased all files and apps.

I was shocked to realize that the browser and WhatsApp had disappeared. I was like, "What???" and I got more shocked when I accessed the Memo app and found…

"Try to shoot the moon, please," I asked him. But all he shot were blur. LOL.

The moon and the lamp. LOL.Our little professor was anxious. He couldn't go to sleep.
"I will be wake up all night until the eclipse comes," that 2nd grader said.
"No, you can't. You have to sleep now. I will wake you up when the eclipse comes inshaa Allah," my husband said.Unfortuna…

In second grade, kids work hard to "sound out" new words as they build up their reading vocabulary. Sometimes, it’s easy; other times, more challenging…and if you’re new reader, having a few patterns up your sleeve can really help things along. One very useful tool is understanding “compound words”—long words that are really made from two shorter, familiar ones, combined.

Here’s a goofy party or park game for a bunch of second grade kids who are learning to read long words. Play it once, play it many times—it should still be good for learning and laughs.
