Now It Is My Turn....

I remembered when I was young, my sister and I was fortunate to have my Mom to wash and clean our school shoes. It has never cross my mind that I will have to do this one day. Now, I know how my Mom felt, dirty but enjoy doing this for our children :)

I know nowadays most families have maids to do this on their behalf. Would you do it once for your kids? I feel great doing this for L! Silly right? I am sure that when Z goes to primary school, I will feel the same way too.

Now I wonder when will it be LZ's turn..... :)

No leh....we (my brother and I) were made to wash our own white canvas shoes. And then to apply the white shoe "paint" (dunno what you call those stuff) ourselves.

For sure that's what I'm gonna expect of Jaimie when she attends school - to do these things by herself!

Hehehe... I am luckier in a way... I washed the shoes when I was in secondary.

I will let LZ try washing the shoes when they are in upper primary. Now if they try doing it, it will probably be in a mess :) and I have to clean up the mess after them.
