The Kids in School

I wanted to write about Anya and Adam in school but didn’t get around to doing it before my delivery. Anya’s in K1 now and went to class on the first day with no hesitation whatsoever. Adam started pre-nursery a few days later. He was quite happy to play and sing along on the first day but wouldn’t let me out of his sight.

By the second day of the orientation, some of the parents managed to slip out of the classroom and stand at the windows but Adam would cry whenever I tried to go outside! He wanted me by his side the entire time and was only willing to wander off on his own when it was playground time.

It was like that for the rest of orientation so I decided not to be around when Adrian dropped him off for his first unaccompanied day at school. There were tears but I think he was much better after a couple of days. Now he goes to school very happily every day! So proud of him!
