Mr. Bean

I don't know what it is with Mr. Bean and why both my kids love him. The world stops and time stands still whenever Mr. Bean is on TV.

A Star At School

My heart bursts with pride whenever I see Keisha come home from school with a star on her hand. Today's star was because she did a good job at reading out loud at school. Since last year at the age of 4, Keisha already knew how to read. Of course, at first she didn't get to read out loud, but as the months at school went by, she began to read faster and faster.

I recall how she would syllabicate until she got the word right. I also recall how she kept asking us how to read a certain word and how it was supposed to sound. I'm glad that now, she's got the hang of it. Of course, there are some words that she still needs some work on, but as her vocabulary expands, I'm sure she'll get the hang of it.

Off to School!

Today's another Monday, and it's my first day off. Some of my office mates wonder why I would prefer a weekday off instead of weekends off. Mondays and Tuesdays are those days which makes me not regret why.

Why? You might be wondering as well. It's because Keisha has school on these days, and I can take her to school. I get the chance to have little chit chat sessions with other parents and with her teacher. I get to see her artwork hung on their classroom walls, and of course I can bathe her, dress her for school, fix her hair, and all those stuff. I guess having Mondays and Tuesdays off makes me feel like a normal parent.

During my workdays where I leave at 4:30 in the morning and get home around 3:30pm or so, she's already come and gone from school and there really isn't much I can do. I guess being able to make preparations for her before she goes to school makes me feel like a real parent. What do you guys think?

The First Day of School, Really

Today Keisha finally went to school after missing the first 3 days of it last week. She had a fever and since it was raining pretty hard last week, rather than risking her getting a relapse, Henry, my mom in law, and I decided to just let her miss the first 3 days.

I took her to her classroom and shook hands with her teacher and then after introducing myself, explained politely why Keisha missed school amidst the other parents asking her questions at the same time. Her teacher didn't seem to mind, and I found out 6 other students also missed out on the first 3 days with reasons of their own.

I'm glad that since Keisha knows where her room is and already got a glimpse of her new schoolmates for the year, it will make the following days much easier for her. She even got to pick her own chair!

The First Day of School

Today is Keisha's first day of school as a Kinder 2 pupil, but unfortunately, she's staying at home because she has a fever. She's almost better and we all want her to rest as much as she can. Besides, there isn't much activities for today since this is her first day of school.

I am hoping that tomorrow she'll be OK to go to school. I still have to iron her uniforms, something I deliberately did not do yesterday since I knew she wouldn't be going to school today anyway.
