The 2ND & 3RD Day

2ND Day

Her first bento for school.

After the first day of school, L asked if I can prepare her snack box again. This time she wanted home cooked food, pasta or rice. My girl thinks she is in a cafe and she is placing order. Hehehe.... I know I know.... I was supposed to encourage her to buy food instead but I can't say no to her for craving for my cooking :p So yesterday I woke up at 5+am to cook! I prepared sausage pasta, cut watermelon, juice and 2 chocolate marshmallow. LZdaddy sent it to school before her recess so that she had warm food. Our efforts paid off after seeing her polishing off everything (except 1 marshmallow).

Z still need a little more coaxing before he went to school and daddy spent some time with him before he went to class. I had a good talk with him after school and he promised me he will go to school and he is someone that will keep his promise :)

3RD Day

By the third day of school, I am very tired.... Rushing them to get ready and preparing myself too. Thank goodness I didn't volunteer to help out everyday in school. I don't think I can cope with the housework, cooking and teaching my kids if I have to be in school that often. I am trying my best to adjust to our new routine too. If MY babies can do it, so can I :)

L bought her food from the canteen and I was the one that showed her to the store instead of her buddy. She queued up on her own and bought a plate of chicken rice. She took a long time to finish her food and when the bell rang, her buddy was helping her to pack up. Haiz... My girl is a slow eater... I hope she will do better and finish her food before the bell ring. She has been saying that she wants to visit the school library but I don't think she will have time. She used up her 30 mins recess for meal for the past 3 days..

Today is the last day I help out the teacher and it was a good experience for me. After morning assembly, the teacher thank us for the help and said she doesn't need later. I stayed on anyway coz L was having her mass PE and I want to see how she was doing. Another parent volunteer had to stay on so I decided to help her out. By then, most of the volunteers already left the school except 2 of us. We stayed till after recess and I was glad I did that. The parent volunteer that I was helping have another 5 kids without buddy!

A promise is a promise :) My boy happily went to school today! Yippee! I think he is slowly getting used to it. Well done baby!
