I'm a Star Student

I’ve written about Yiu Yiu’s first and second day at school. On the third day, hubby sent her to school and after settling her down in her class, left her and waited outside, occasionally peeping in to see how she was doing. He pretty much left her on her own, even during dismissal, and the little missy fared very well on her first day unsupervised. She was even rewarded with a Star Student sticker during the dismissal assembly. Apparently, the sticker was awarded to about 10 students who had the most fun, and was most happy, at school that day. However, it was all torn up when she came home, coz she tried to remove it from her clothes herself.

From Thursday onwards, parents were no longer allowed to be in class with the students. Yiu Yiu came back and told us that she cried in school today. She initially refused to tell us why but during a conversation on singing, she accidentally split the beans. Apparently during the class singing session, she needed to go to the washroom and the assistant teacher duly brought her there. However, when she returned, the singing session had ended. She was so disappointed that she cried – “They didn’t wait for me and finish singing themselves” – were her summary of her short bout of crying.

Nothing extraordinary happened on Friday, at least nothing that the little missy could tell us. So save for the minor glitches on her first day, I’d say she did really well for the first week. Thanks everyone for your kind words and encouragement for her.
