1st week in school

A week has pass already since the first day of school. My son seems tired all the time whenever he comes home from school. He doesn’t look happy at all. It make me wonder if he likes his new school or not. Being the new kid is pretty tough in his age. It would take time to get adjusted and to have friends in school. Especially the case of my kuya who is very shy and so timid, he is the type that would wait for somebody to talk to him and make friends.

I asked him today if he like his new school, he said Yes. I asked him also if he like his teacher, he said yes again. Then I asked him if somebody is bother him in school cause he doesnt look happy, he said No. Then I asked him if he has friends already, and he said No with a sad face. :-(. It sure made me feel sad, and I dont know how to fix his problem. I just told him that he should say Hi to everyone, or to the boy that is sitted next to him when he get in to his class. And always smile to his classmates so they will start talking to him. But I’m not sure if he is gonna do it, as I said earlier he is a very shy boy. I talk to hubby about this, he said that its only the first week of school, and that I shouldnt worry so much, because its natural that he will feel that way. Sooner or later he will have friends and will enjoy school even more. Well.. I hope so! Cause I hate to see him like this.

I hope my kuya will have friends in his school soon, so he will not feel sad when he comes home.

on Labor Day

How time fly so fast? It’s September already and its the second week of school. My student has been doing pretty good since the first day of school. He said he loves it, his teacher is very nice, and he likes riding the school bus with the kids from school. I am really happy for him. I hope nobody will bother him, or bully him so he will enjoy school even more.

Today, he stayed home, because its Labor Day. I almost forgot that today is a Holiday, good thing I found the school calendar laying on the floor and decided to check it out, before waking him up to get ready for school.

Since school is out today, I was planning to take my kids to the park where they could play, but when I looked outside, the weather said that its not a good idea to go to the park. Oh well, maybe next time. So we just stayed indoor all day, watching some educational shows on TV, playing some games, and coloring some pictures in a coloring book. I am proud to say, my little toddler is getting better in coloring! Hurray! I am so happy that he was able to color a whole picture all by himself already! Usually he cant finished it, and he would complain like: ‘ I’m so tired Mum Mum, I’m so tired of coloring’. But I got him motivated by coloring with him, and showing him how beautiful it is, if he finish his work. Check out some of his work below. PhotobucketIsn’t it amazing!  With a little bit more practice, he can color within the lines. 🙂

PhotobucketHere he is seriously coloring his Caillou Coloring Book.

Is’nt it great to see your kids improving? No matter how little it is, as a parent, its an achievement. It makes me a proud Mama.:-)

Well, that was our Labor Day. How about you? What did you do on Labor Day?
