School Day Blues

We survived Jesse's first day. Yay! The boy was a little apprehensive at first seeing the crowd in the place, but the moment he saw tables upon tables all strewn with toys, he quickly got into the game. Unfortunately Jesse isn't much of a people person, so after awhile, he just went his own way doing his own thing.

it's Daddy's first day of school

On their first week, classes run from 9:00am to 11:00am only. Our first hour we distanced ourselves, staying in sight so our boy could see us. At the second hour, once we saw that he has gotted comfortable in his new surroundings, we quickly split the scene.

All in all, it wasn't bad. Today, however, was a different story altogether. I didn't go today, so Mae managed it on her own. Unfortunately the poor boy was feeling a little fragile today and there was screaming and gneshing of teeth. Ugh! Hopefully he gets accustomed quickly cos this Kindie is pretty militant about parents' presence. According to a Handbook we had been given (yes, they're THAT efficient!) we're not allowed on school ground after Day 3.

I'd like to tell you a cute little story of my first day at Kindy, but for the life of me, I can't remember a damn thing about it. Either it was such an uneventful day that I forgot or I have suppressed the horrific memory of my mother deserting me. Heh! I guess eventually it'll turn out alright for Jesse.


  1. Well done, Jesse! Although you need to work up and be friend other students, am sure you will get used to it very soon.
    James, you look more excited going to school than Jesse himself! LOL.

  2. He will get over it. Like other kids. Not to worry. :)

  3. Wayyyyy to go Jesse!!! I'm sure he'll be fine..even if he's not a people person..he'll definitely make friends!!!! (Even if he doesn't want to!!) HA HA HA!

  4. James, i think u shud change the kindi becoz the strict rules are making it very difficult for baby Jesse & stressing out ur wife

  5. Daddy look very happy leh..! hahha!! I think Jesse will do good .. :) i remember my 2nd day.. i was crying buckets.. when my mom left..! and i was a very friendly and talkative kid..!

  6. Dammit! I dont remember my Kindy having so many toys! But maybe it's cos I nicked half a dozen zoo animals.

  7. Yah man, Jason, no sleep the whole night!!!
    :lol: Duckie
    He's not like other kids, Gina. He's weird. Hehehh...
    I certainly hope so, MOTT. It would also help prepare him should there be a sibling sometime in the future... hahah...
    Hey Phoenix! Where have you been all this while!? :) Thanks for the concern, but we do believe that it may be best for Jesse...
    Wow, you remember, MamaBoK?
    Stevo: So that's where you learnt to be a criminal. :lol:

  8. I can foresee that someday Jesse will become a very professional gynae. ;)
