Raelynn's first day at school
Due to the maid issues, I went to ask RaeAnne's old PG school at Blk 702, n we r lucky cos we can enrol RL immediately, no need to wait as they have 2 kids dropping out after end June. There are 14 kids now but after June, should be 12.
Previously, i was thinking of sending RL to playgroup but didn't do it cos of the extra cost and logistics issues of 2 kids starting & finishing school at different timings ie. RA, 830am - 12pm & RL 9-11am, plus i didn't want the maid to be so free at home while I'm out. But since we have no maid anymore, decided to do it n enrol her for some social interaction n learning. Cos if i start course/work n we put her at ILs house the whole day, she won't learn anything except messing up the toys n pouring water everywhere. :p
So, yesterday, we dressed her up in Cheh cheh's old school uniform n brought her down at 945am n left at 10am when the kids were having tea break. She was curious n observed quietly. I am glad she didn't cry nor cling to me like a koala bear compared to RaeAnne. When the teacher/children sang songs, she started clapping. So cute. Today, we brought her down at 10am during the tea break n left at 10.15am when she was halfway through her stick biscuits, n went to run errands at NTUC n buy lunch before fetching her. No time to cook cos pt cleaner coming at 11am.
She was carried by Teacher Chris and crying when we came. Teacher Chris said she didn't cry at all when we left. She only started crying when another little gal snatched her piece of paper. Will let her start officially Tom since it's 16th n easier to calculate half month school fees. Will bring her down at 9am n hope she does equally well Tom.
