The second week of school is ending soon today, how is everyone doing? I hope that all our kids have settled down in school already.
As for Little Edison, yes, he has settled down in K2 this year. It’s the same school, same routine and same classmates for him. Only changes are his teachers and classroom. So technically, it should be an easy transition for him.
Since he started school last week, he keeps repeating this to me: “I’m six years old now, and I’m a big boy.” He is very proud of his ‘big boy’ status and being the oldest kids in school now. And I told him this: “If you see a little kid crying at school, you should go over and tell him/her not to cry. Take care of those children younger than you.”
I’m not sure if he’ll really approach them if he sees someone crying.
Our morning routine has been adjusted back to ‘school’ mode and we’re less hurried if we could wake up slightly earlier. I’m still driving him to school, since it’s near my office. I asked him if he wants to join his friends to take the school bus, and his answer was, “No, I want to take Mama’s car.” So, I’ll continue to be his ‘chauffer’ as long as he needs me.
Recently, I was caught with a big surprise when I heard him sprouted the word ‘fucking idiot’.
Me: Boy, you shouldn’t say that word. It’s a very bad word.
Edison: But Papa is saying that. (Now I know where he learnt the word from)
Me: Papa is an adult, but you’re a small boy.
Edison: So, I can say that word when I’m an adult?
Me: Errr, still NO. It’s a bad word. Nobody should say it.
Edison: But why Papa says that?
Me: Go ask your Papa!
And so, I issued a warning to V to be extra careful when he’s talking in front of our boy. I’ve a feeling that this conversation is not so over yet. Perhaps before the next bad word comes, I should start thinking of how to answer his questions.
