First Day



Today, 17th of September 2007, is Little H's first day of school.

That is, nursery 'school'.

After helping him to settle down in the play area and playing Legos and doing some drawings with him for about half an hour, I said, "Okay, H*****, I'm going now...ok?"

Little H looked up at me and said without any concern whatsoever, "alright...and you'll come back later to pick me up..."

I sent him to one of the nursery helpers who quickly involved him in a sorting game with another child, using little animal figures of different sizes - he was supposed to sort them out according to their sizes. Little H sat down shyly and I quickly made for the door.

As I reached for the door handle, I turned around to give him one last wave for encouragement but he was already talking and picking up the animal figures, giving the nursery helper in front of him his full attention...

My little baby is all grown now.

Sigh.


I walked back home alone feeling a little bit sad and lonely...

Your son's cool....unlike my three boys. One practically jumped over a low grille to run out about three days and made embarassing scenes; one cried almost half a year every day that I had to stay behind with him to read stories for almost half that year but still cried the minute I left him; and the last one cried for a week....But I miss those days.....!

Yay! More time for Mama! Oh you'll stop moping after a couple of weeks, don't worry. If you still feel lonely, then I'd repeat this suggestion: arrange for a third one to come around soon! ;-P
