Well, it’s finally here; this new school season sees Sarah entering into a new chapter of her life - she has gone to kindergarten for a week now.
Actually she had attended the week-long orientation session in December; and to sum up her performance at school so far I can only use one word: anxiety.
She admitted that she did cry inside her class, but at least she didn’t make a fuss when I dropped her off at school; she still wave goodbye, although without smile, then she obediently follow her teacher to the class (heartbreaking moment for us mommy, huh?)
I prepare Sarah’s daily meal for school every day. In order to give her extra “incentive” for schooling, I try to make the “bento” set as creative as possible each day by adding one healthy snack. I guess she likes it so far because she can finish most of the food.
Sleep time is a “confession” time. I enjoyed listening to her about things happened at kindergarten on the day (I have to ask cleverly, though); so I am now have a clearer picture and understanding about her daily activities at school.
This thing takes time, I know; but I’m still proud of Sarah’s achievement. I guess at this moment she’s still very anxious about school, but I am sure sooner she will overcome the fear one day.
