Not really.. I usually bring him up to his classroom and hurry back home. But there are some occasions that I bump into a mom or two and a conversation ensued.
Trust me. You can almost predict the flow of the conversation.
It always starts with, "How do you find the school?" which actually means, "Do you have any complaints to share?"
Then there are some updates about other schools or centres; about their new curiculum or programs. *yawn*
And then, of course, they have to warn you about the impending doom of your child upon entering Standard One.
I have an innate ability to carry a conversation, especially with strangers. I gasp and laugh at punchlines. When I am really in a good mood, I can even be suggestive (they should install mosquito nets).
But seriously, I just wanna go home and ....
..chat on msn or... eat lunch.
Like, seriously, mothers have nothing better to do ah? (sending the kids off is one thing, talkok with other mothers is another, ok??)
