A Friday ritual.

A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week.

A simple, special, extraordinary moment.

A moment I want to pause, savor and remember – {this moment}

Ah Lo has been on Invisalign for 3 weeks now. It took a few days to get used to, especially putting the rubber band on. He was sore the first 2 days, that’s about it. Once he gets the hang of it, it’s not bad. Here are the likes and dislikes about it.

Likes:

1) no need to extract teeth

2) a less-noticeable alternative to metal braces

3) teaches him responsibility

4) can eat whatever and whenever he likes

5) no pain

Dislikes:

1) He’s a teen now, which means he’s eating all the time. Having to take it out, put it back in so often makes it easy for him to misplace (or clean it, or a pain to locate the case to put it in).

2) whether he’s responsible enough to get this process down – involves a lot of cleaning of the trays, brushing and flossing.

Summer is the time I have the boys spend more time in the kitchen because they don’t have any excuses (doing HW, or practice). On weekends, basically, they take over to do lunch and/or dinners (including doing the dishes) which is great.

Tonight, I am showing Ah Lo how to do steam eggs (one of their favorite dish). It’s the easiest thing to make but can also be very tricky. Once you get it down, it will also come out perfectly. This is the lesson, next week will be the test.

Busy day around the clock. Started the day at 8am and didn’t come home until 9pm. As one of the gym commissioner to Ah Lo’s basketball organization, I had to show up early to setup and make sure all goes well with the tournament. Dai Bee and my sister are the official time/score keepers. In the middle of the day, Dai Bee needs to be dropped off for this school’s orchestra spring concert (rehearsal). I took over his job as timekeeper. As soon as the last game ended, we rushed to see Dai Bee’s concert in the evening.

With all the madness, it was icing on the cake to know Ah Lo’s team won both games and will be going to championship tomorrow morning.
