It’s really fun going to the school to fetch KD home. For many days this week, I hid at corners to peek into the classroom to see what my son is doing. Somehow every time I got found out by him within minutes, and he will happily and very loudly announced to his class that “Yeah! It’s my mommy! My mommy is here! YIPPEE! “, pointing at me.
Observing him made me a proud mama. *bleam with pride*
Below are photos which will become part of my very precious memories that I will reminisce when I am old. Thank you hubby once again for allowing me to be able to have this kinda days.
LOL! And he is always the first to dash out of the class even if teachers told him to wait. *haha*
I left with the struggling KD crying at the door of his class today. It’s for his own good. Three hours later, I returned to pick him up and was peeping in to see what he’s doing.
The happy boy was very happy that the class is ending and teachers are asking them to put on their shoes.
He spotted me and shouted so loud that everyone outside can hear YIPPEE!! MY MOMMY IS HERE! YIPPEE!
He is so going to run out immediately and when teacher stopped him, he burst ouy crying again that he wants his mommy!
Lol! The school and other parents thought that I took care of KD since he’s young thus he is so attached to me. They were stunned when i said no, he was in infantcare and childcare since young. I think the strong attachment could be due to:
1) I am pregnant now and he’s insecure
2) I breastfeed him for 18 months
3) I did a really good job as a sahm for the past 2 months that he thoroughly enjoyed being with me
4) My efforts to bond with him since he is born paid off
Anyway, I gave him a present today. Something I bought long ago and wrapped up again. It’s to “reward” him for surviving this week. 🙂
Wah! He said its a present from santa claus due to the wrapping paper. He was so excited
School for KD has been as usual but he has improved today, 15 minutes before the dismissal then he started crying so loud that everyone outside can hear. Moments later, the principal opened the door and allowed him out. So far he has been having the special privilege of being the first to go home.. the moment he is outside the classroom, he is all smiley already though there were leftover tears on his face. -_-” Principal said that he cried on off after I left. :p
For the past few days KD had been refusing his lunch. It always end up with him crying and me in anger. I told myself that I can’t be beating or screaming back at him every day. So today, I tried a new approach instead of bargaining with him to finish his food then I give him whatever he wants. I brought him home immediately after class and started on activities prior to lunch! Activities that he will love and enjoy!
We did so much today! Playdoh, finger printing, painting, and a brand new activity!
Playing with Cookie Monster Playdoh
We knead, we roll and we mould! Feed them to Cookie Monster!
cut out shapes that we made
He loves painting very much!
And i really love watching him paint… so charming! LOLx
So focus and concentrating on painting
Ok, we actually did finger printing together first but it was too messy to take the pictures…
His finished artwork! LOLx
I kanna summoned yesterday! So i was inspired to recycle the coupon paper waste for “revenge”! Sigh my $$$~~~
Asking him to tear out for me.. it’s not easy ok.. this is very good for finger exercises
Tore by KD
“Trimmed” by me
Tadah! With the help of glue stick, we made this! It’s fun but not easy for both the small and big hands! really finger play!
And guess what? When we had lunch one hour later, he finished his own bowl of rice plus a chocolate bread! All on his own, without needing me to nag or battle with him at all! ❤ <3!
Hmm, I find that the break that Kyle enjoyed when I withdrawed him from the childcare and waited for nursery to reopen was too long.
He is throwing BIG tantrums for his 2nd day of school today. The moment I put on the uniform for him, he cried himself hoarse all the way from home to the school. I had a hard time carrying the struggling crying boy, lugging his school bag, holding on his shoes.. all with my budging and heavy tummy.
When we entered the class, he was still a koala bear hugging me tightly. After many songs and he was willing to let me go and sit on the floor himself. 🙂 I feel so proud of him at the moment! It’s like he took the initiative himself without anyone forcing him! Little children are much more amazing than we think!
I just came out from the class when he’s settled down. I lied to him that I need to use the toilet and can he wait for me please? I feel when a child goes to school, it’s like the parent going to school all over again. 🙂 the parents are more anxious and worried than the child. Not just the child needs to feel secure and at ease. The parent has to learn to let go too.
And thus here I am, outside the classroom bloggin on my phone. Making this another precious memory of Kyle’s milestone – transiting from full time childcare to nursery.
I still remember the days when I was the one going to kindergarten and my mommy was standing outside peeping in from the small gaps in between metal window panes. Being a parents in whatever year doesn’t changed much really. Be it in 1988 or 2013…
Hee, due to our staycation, Kyle skipped the 1st two days of school and it’s his unofficial first day of school today! He is in nursery now!
I think when a child starts his school, it’s the mother that is more excited and nervous.
I had enrolled him into the little wings by PAP. I love the principal whom I have spoken many times with. She is really patient and experienced. The teachers are very helpful and loving too. Kyle is in good hands. Too bad it won’t be for long cos once we get the keys to our new house, we will be moving very far away. 😦 Unlike a child care environment where the teachers keep chasing the parent out and discourage the parents from seating in, Kyle’s new school actually prefers me to be there with him and kept telling me it’s okay, more importantly let the child feels secure and familiar first. I also told them that he is not toilet trained yet but they are okay amd told me not to rush, they will assist me. You can imagine how in love I am with this very supportive school after getting so much nonsenses from Kyle’s childcare centre.
