Tales from school

On the third day...

"I helped Meena to write. She doesn't know how to write FOUR."

"Did Meena ask for help?"


"(Hmmmm....) Did teacher ask you to help?"


"(Dang!) You finished your work, and had nothing to do?"


*pengsan* Did you have time to finish your work?

"Yup! I was the first to finish."

*phew~* "Err.. why don't you finish your work first, then you help your friends.. and that is also if they needed help."

Gooly oh gooly... of all things, you are 8 like mahmee.. (CY, nei hoe yeh..)

Anyways, MIL has been pressurizing that he be moved to K2. I'm not so gung ho about that. Sure, the work sheets may be easy (except for Thai and Mandarin). But there is always a learning opportunity. For his case, learning not to be cocky, to be helpful and be positive.

He is still a child. When he is overwhelmed by academic stuff, I don't think both of us will have time to focus on elementary things like, being a human. A nice one, that is.

Maybe I am not ambitious. *shrugs*


Yesterday I rummaged thru his pocket and found an empty plastic marshmallow wrapper. "Oh, he didn't litter," was my first thought because he kept it in his pocket to be thrown away.

When he saw me holding the wrapper, he quickly grabbed it and threw it in the bin while saying, "It's rubbish.. It's not for you. Wait.. I got something else for you." And he handed me a folded paper star.

That's strange. I was a bit suspicious about his stealthy and swift actions.

Later on, I found out from Ada's mom, that he had intended to keep that marshmallow for me. But he couldn't resist it, and gulped it down in the car.

When teased, "I thought that was for your mom," he retorted, "Cannot.. it will get rotten."

Amboi.. pandai cari alasan.

*sigh* Thus, the stealth mode when he tried to discard the evidence.

Btw, the paper star was a 'kemek' one.

Lapsap! (rubbish) for mahmee, huh? Marshmallows you eat, huh? Nei hoe yeh, Gooly..

Note: I have considered stopping this blog once he starts school because it is another chapter of our life. I thought closing it would be a significant end for his pre-school years. But looks like we are gonna be around for awhile. His stories at school are priceless. :-)
