report card

elli had report card day last saturday and erika will be today.

we went for elli's and didn't go for erika's.

elli is doing well in school, teacher says she can stand up for herself very well - which translates to she can fight with the boys or pick a quarrel if the occasion arises...yahooo....way to go, guuurrrrl!! so proud of your vocal abilities and your gutsi-ness. elli loves to play with boys only (if she has a choice) and girls if there are no boys around.

as for erika it's not that I am not proud of her achievements...it sometimes border on the brink of "embarrassment"...but am glad that she is not taking it badly or suffering from low self-esteem. in fact she loudly proclaim she is number 35 in a class of 37. i scratch my head!! we have tried all works even bribery...used to say if u get 20 and above, we take u to disneyland....now we gotta say if u get 35 and above...coz we really wanna go!! she is just an excuse to pack our bags. what crazy parenting is this??

i seriously have no clue what is happening in erika's head...her teachers have been telling us from 3 years old till now that she's one word - "dreamy". when will she wake up? i dunno, this sleeping beauty need to awaken with a potent kiss.

update 24 June
erika showed us her report card - she's not 35 but 34 in a class of 38!!

*sigh* my second daughter too is a dreamer.. she gets easily distracted and her mind will wander off if she were to do work for too long..

just hope this is a passing stage and she will stop dreaming...

its too competitive these days. hang in there, mummy. i know quite a few kids who excelled so well in primary school, only to be burnt-out by secondary school. scary thought. i think erika'll do better and better as she gets older.
