|Getting ready for school|
It's my first day in school... pre nursery to be exact.
Woke up early at 645 am to get ready for school. I was all smiles when I put on the uniform. However I thought I was going to the zoo instead of school. (Must have heard wrongly the night before) The school uniform is similar to the one elder brother wears. It did not click in me that I was going to school as I thought it was another day out for the family.

|Big Brother in Charge|
Unfortunately my parents greatest fear came. I had a meltdown in school.
Guess who won the loudest and longest wail on the first day of school?
Daddy and Mummy were mentally prepared for this. Big brother has his own meltdowns when he was first attended school. Somehow they felt the same would apply to me. Given that I had minimum enrichment classes exposure, I was totally in awed of the whole situation.
I never did do well in a class environment. Prior to this I had stopped Growing up Gifted classes as a result of my refusal to stay in class. Compared to my brother, Daddy feel I will be the tougher one... the tougher one to handle when it comes to going school.
Luckily for me, Daddy had done his Basic Childcare Training with Big Brother during his crying days. He did not give me and constantly try to bring me to engage in the activities. Mommy took over for the latter part, and she did one thing better than Daddy. She made me stop crying.
Daddy, sorry to burst your bubble, but Mommy better lah!
In any case, my parents are praying that I would adjust to school life. Whatever the outcome, they have faith in me as they did with Big Brother. Looking forward to a tearless school day!
