My Kid’s Growing Up So FastOctober 7, 2011 10:19 pm From the Teacher, Philippines, The Son
My kid’s growing up so fast and he is immensely enjoying himself doing many activities with school friends.
The bag in the photos is my son’s must-bring because it has inhaler, wet tissue pack, ID and baby powder in it.
Your school days begin at the time you wake up at 5am to get ready for school. Sometimes it’s easy for you to wake up effortlessly but more often than not, you have to drag yourself out of bed.
Most of the time you and your sisters are able to have breakfast before the school bus goes beeping at around 5:45am. If Kuya Driver is early, you all bring your breakfast to school.
You come home with your sisters tired, but happily chatting away how your day was spent in school. And yes, you rarely come home “clean” as you get to play with your classmates while waiting for the school bus to bring you back home.
This was a Science project about the stages of physical development.
Was it just a few years back when you tried to play kadang-kadang while you were still a homeschooler? I still feel you just turned six years old when in fact, you turned 10 two months ago. Now, you are learning about the reproductive system among other things and getting all O’s in Math when the report card was given.
You love the outdoors even if you risk having asthma attack at night when you get tired. Being a Boy Scout is not easy but you found joy in it so much so you are on your second year of being one. Why, you even spent a three day camp with your schoolmates last month and tomorrow is another big day with Scouts from other schools.
And what about the Dramatics Club? Last year’s performance was something I know we are proud of and something you enjoyed because this year, you joined the club again. We are definitely looking forward to see you perform again. My fervent wish is to listen to you recite a poem again in Filipino or watch you perform a folk dance.
You are growing up so fast!
I love you to the moon and back!
Your mom, Teacher Julie
