Today I was schooled by my 8 year old…here is what happened.
“Dante, you should put your skipping ropes in this little backpack here.” I picked up a blue and grey backpack and motioned for Dante to put his skipping ropes in there.
“I’m not a fan of that bag, it just isn’t my kind of backpack.” Dante sneered at the supposedly ugly backpack.
“Well, skipping ropes can be easily lost…” I prodded.
“Nope, not my style.” Dante insisted on holding the skipping ropes in his hands until he got to training class.
When Dante got to his training class, the coach told the students that skipping ropes were not required so they can put the skipping ropes away. Dante gave his skipping ropes to me for safe keeping in my small purse.
After the training class, Dante asked for a quarter for a gumball candy and I had to take the skipping ropes out out my purse to access my wallet. But when I got home, I noticed that the skipping ropes were no longer in my purse!
“Dante, I think I might have lost the skipping ropes today when you asked me for a quarter…” I said.
“Didn’t you say earlier that skipping ropes are easily lost?” Dante said with a smug smile on his face, “You should be careful with what you say Mommy, because it might just come true!”
These were the wise words of an eight year old boy…
This is an inspirational story about a conversation I had with my six year old about God.
Yesterday I was putting the kids to bed when we were talking about managing our energy. I was teaching them about how kids can be very hyper if they don’t learn how to manage their energy.
All of a sudden Cedric blurted out, “I know what God is!”
“Oh really?” I said.
“Yeah! God is a big massive ball of energy!” Cedric said as he raised both of his arms to make a huge circular gesture.
“What makes you think that?” Feeling rather amused. I don’t think we talked about this before.
“I don’t know, I’m going to start imagining energy moving through my body now.” He said as he pulled up his blanket and got ready for dreamland.
Today I had a really hard time training my nanny. It was like I have to train someone from the ground up. I came back from a grocery shopping trip with some canned artichokes and she asked me, “Can you tell me where to put these cans?”
“Where do you think you would put them?” I asked, hoping to see moments of brilliance.
“Er…maybe a good place to put them would be in the fridge?” She replied cautiously.
I think I just wanted to scream.
Later at night I decided to write my Dear Universe Journal and see what my strange mind comes up with:
May: I feel so frustrated with my new nanny. How does she not know that you don’t need to put cans in the fridge?
Answer: At least she is working. You just sit around and complain about her.
M: Who is this? (The frequency seem different this time) Who are you?
A: The commander of a Star Vehicle.
M: Why are you chiming in? (This is none of your business…)
A: You have a lot of work to do.
M: What kind of work?
A: Janitorial work.
A: People call it clearing or cleaning or whatever you do for others.
M: So what am I? Some kind of Galactic Janitor?
M: Hey! Why can’t I be the commander and YOU come and do some Janitorial work? Huh? Are you smarter and more knowledgeable than me or something?
A: There are no levels and comparisons in this dimension. You CHOSE to be a Galactic Janitor, don’t Blame me!
M: Huh? Am I supposed to clean up after people?
A: You need to clean more than just people! You are not that hard working you know, where are your writing and meditations?
M: I’m cleaning all the time, 24/7, even when I sleep! Give me a break!
A: You can clean better, you need to be more detail oriented when you
M: The pay for a Janitor is not exactly high…
A: No levels remember? Galactic Janitors are very well paid.
M: And what currencies do you use huh? (Still feeling like a brat)
A: You get paid in L…O…V…E! It is the Universal Currency (UC)! It comes directly from the Source and not from your clients. That’s one thing most humans have not figured out yet…
M: What haven’t they figured out?
A: The money don’t always come from clients. They try to get paid in all the wrong ways and find love in all the wrong places. The best way out of the rat race is LOVE! Love that comes directly from Source. I can guarantee that there will be no glass ceiling on that!
M: Is there a currency exchange place where I can convert the Universal Currency to a locally accepted currency and method of payment?
A: The Universal Currency is accepted at all locations, dimensions, and beyond.
M: Forget about the Galactic Janitorial work, I just want to sit around and watch figure skating!
A: You will have plenty of chances to do THAT! Now get back to work Cinderella!
M: Oh Man!
I guess that is what happens when I complain.
This is a continuation from my previous post called the Consequences of Trying to Spoil My Kids where I spoke about the lessons I learned from trying too hard to spoil my children. In this video, my seven year old son tells me how much candy and chocolate I should be spoiling him with:
You Can’t Always Give Kids Everything They Want:
My parenting adventure continues with this funny story about my parenting insights.
Cedric really wanted to go on a real train ride for a very long time. He bugs me about it from time to time. In order to do this for him, I need to take him on a 45 minutes Skytrain ride downtown during rush hour, then I need to hop on the Westcoast Express, then I needed to get my husband Dobes to come drive us home from the train station which is 25 minutes from our house during rush hour, all for a 20 min train ride. Watch this video and see what happened to our little adventure and what I learned from this:
I have been receiving guidance from my inner wisdom that I can benefit people by showing them who I truly am. However, I find it hard to be myself and show people who I truly am. This is especially so in public.
So to get over my fears, I decided to film a video of myself in public at a park! My hair was a mess, my cheeks look chubby (or they are actually chubby). I could think about all these different ways of judging myself.
This inspirational story had a very funny and surprising twist to it at the end. Nature really brings us a lot of “lessons”.
