Orientation Day - Z

I think most P1 children has gone through their orientation by now.  My boy had his today!  I prefer it this way coz when school starts, he will be able to remember who is his teacher and where is his classroom etc...

We had to be in school by 8am!  It was a rush, having to get ready everyone and make sure all have their breakfast.  As the main gate was a distance away from the carpark, Z and I alighted first and went in to find out which class he will going to and who is his form teacher.

Z was not nervous at all and he seemed so cool!  Probably he has been to the school a few times and know what to expect and  L has been 'feeding' him lots of info.  For me, I am very excited and at the same time a little sad....  Z & I have talked about it... We gonna missed those times that we spent shopping and bonding after picking him up from school.  Well, that's life!  I can't possibly keep him under my wings forever...

At the hall, Z sat with his classmates while waiting for everyone to settle down.  I introduced myself to the teacher, told her that he just removed his cast and may not be able to write for the moment.  We were hoping Z 's form teacher will be L's P1 form teacher but it was not.  From what I found out, his form teacher is quite good too.

After the welcome speech by the Principal, the children went to their respective class and followed by briefing for parents. Before the briefing begins, L met one of her classmates and her mommy suggested that L goes to her house, which is just next to the school. We let her go, knowing that she will be bored staying there.  Beanie fell asleep before the briefing and woke up halfway through.  LZdaddy & I took turns to take him out as he was 'talking' too much. 

We meet up with Z in his classroom after the briefing.  We were very happy to know that one of his K2 classmate and L's classmate brother (I know the mom & the boys have met before) are in the same class too!  Yeah!  Their parents were very happy too!  At least I know that he will not be alone...  Z is shy and it takes him some times to open up to others at times.

At the canteen, L was the guide. She showed Z which stall sell chicken rice, drinks, fruits etc... After looking at the food, they felt hungry and had their lunch there.  I am glad to know that they have stopped selling titbits!  Applause for the school!  Now I don't have to worry LZ buying junk food for recess.

I showed him where the public phone is, in case he wants/need to call us and he made his FIRST call to LZdaddy Z told LZdaddy to move far away so he can make the call to him and chat!  Haha...

L told Z where the water coolers and taught him how to top up his water bottle.  My girl is soooo sweet, isn't she?  She looks forward to her brother joining the school! Every now and then, I hear her telling about primary school life and what to expect.

We have showed and taught him things that he should know and hope he is well prepared for school on Monday.  Let's hope he is not as blur as a sotong!  Hehehe...

My boy already requested for bento during recess and he said EVERYDAY!  He told me countless of times, ever since he saw me prepared bento for L.  I told him I will try to prepare for him whenever I can and if I prepare for him everyday, he will not learn how to buy food on his own.  AND mommy is also lazy lah! Hehehe...

Next week it will be a busy week for me coz I will be helping out in the school again!  Yeah!  I missed it!  The Chairperson was very kind to let me help out even though I have not been active for the whole year.  She assigned me to help out at the hall so that I can be with Z and I will be at the canteen during recess.
Do you think he put on weight?  Friends or neighbours who seen him recently said that Z put on weight and I think so too.  Neighbours asked what have I been feeding him and they commented that he looks very good now with the weight gained.  Friends said I did a good job, 把孩子养得胖胖 (my 3 kids).  Haha... I told them as a SAHM, it is my 'job' to make sure my kid are well fed, healthy and happy.  If I can't do my 'job' well, I better quit!  Haha... 

On a serious note... I don't need my kids to be 胖胖 to prove that I take good care of them. Most important my kids & hub know it.
