Back when you were a child, how did your mom keep up with your school activities? My mom may not be the best cook in our kitchen, she may not have made the best hot choco as I wake up in the morning for school but I am proud to say she did not miss any of my school activities back then and to date, she continues to do so with her grand daughter, Deye. Having said that, I am therefore guilty for missing some of the school activities of my daughter. Life of a working mom! But if I had a choice, certainly, I would be like my mom who never missed any of the awarding and school activities, academic or non-academic.
