bragging mommy

finally a break from work and a chance to relax with the notebook…one word to sum up this whole meeting…”streesssss”....ok no talk of work anymore...talk about my girl!

before i left on saturday, went to erika's school with daddy for "report card" and "meet the teacher" session. well, after the meeting, i was soooo happiieee (ecstatic!) la to hear all the “praises” of my darling erika. being the proud mama, i indulged in every “praise” word that came out of the teacher’s mouth. not everyday i get to hear this...hopefully i will hear the same at the end of school year. i was grinning from ear to ear (like silly girl) and nodding my head in agreement non-stop!

why wouldn’t i? my darling girl did us soooo proud, besides the fact that she did exceptionally well in her test (her very 1st attempt), she aced it…wooo hoo!! by her own effort, no tuition or much coaching from me, especially chinese. her teacher was so surprised coz the 2 parent were so “illiterate”.

teacher said she is one of the top students (wah …bragging again) and the best part is she is one of the most “improved” over the last 5 months. that’s because during the first 2 months in this new “homework induced” school, she did things according to her way and her own sweet time, didn’t follow her new teacher’s instruction and don’t finish her homework. big taboo in this school ~ no finish work.

i dun blame her la…this protective mommy gave teacher lots of excuses…like she came from a montessori background (different learning style), new school la, new environment la, she never had homework before, and was encourage to play, play, play. the sudden change from play to work can be a hard pill to swallow, even for a child.

well erika survived and made it on her own accord…(bragging bragging) sooo proud of her, promise to buy you some nice stuff (if i have the chance, they dun pay u to shop here so shopping is not in the meeting agenda…i should change that!!)

hope i could grab some promotional products at bargain prices...wah that would be a steal la!
