… yes, we are!
So, April was the last time I blogged here, but we HAVE been schooling in one way or the other. My little seedling is blossoming into a young boy, and I’m just about managing to keep up.
He is now EXTREMELY inquisitive, so it’s like a Q&A session in our home every single day – alhamdulillaah. He’s learning about himself and the people and world around him… for that I’m grateful.
And with that, an update is due:
— jazaakumAllaahu khairan to everyone who posted a suggestion to encourage Junayd to write. Mashaa`Allaah he no longer has an inherent fear of writing, and actually ASKS to do ‘words’, which is in fact dictation (imagine that, a four-year-old asking for dictation lessons. I’m humbled!).
— he can count to 100, and not only in tens, but in ones too! This miracle – which it is in my view since I’d been trying for aaaages to help him understand how to count in tens – deserves a whole post itself. And it will get one inshaa`Allaah.
— I WILL be completing the Arabic alphabet sheets inshaa`Allaah, I just cannot say when. I’m so sorry for taking long on this.
I hope everyone’s happy and well,
~ Umm Junayd.
