First day

Tomorrow will be the first day of school of my 2-year-old little boy.  I’m so excited for him, can’t wait for him to start learning new things, meeting new friends and playing with kids his age.  My son’s pre-school has a very good program, it is relatively pricey compared to other pre-school in our area but Hubs and I think that it will be worth it.  He’s our only one for now and the main reason for our hard work is to provide him with a good education, right?  I’d rather scrimp on other things, like clothes, toys or luxury things than on education.  I know it’s still pre-school, we still have a decade before he starts high school, but why not start early?


My parents are not rich in material things.  Growing up, I was always told that money doesn’t grow on trees and Papa had to be away so he can provide for us.  My parents always told us that the only thing they can provide for is our education.  They worked hard to send me to a good school when I was in high school.  Though UP’s tuition was cheap then, the allowance plus the dorm fee were not easy on the pocket.  My parents postponed the construction of our house so I could graduate.  I know how hard they work, specially my Papa, so I always made it a point graduate on time.  That didn’t mean I didn’t have fun though… what is college without fun? J Fun in college is another set of entry…Anyhoo, when I graduated; I surely made my parents very proud.  I distinctly remember hearing a huge sigh of relief from my Papa when I was called on stage to receive my diploma hehe! 


So yeah, first day of school tomorrow.  Can’t wait!  Hubs and I are not coming in for work in the morning so we can bring the little boy to school.  I’m preparing a sandwich for him to bring for snacks, he already has his “Chaki” – that’s his term for Chuckie J  I already have his attire in mind, but have to buy his diapers tonight before I go home.  Hay, I’m a mother of a little schoolboy! Hehe  


Teacher P, the school’s directress, asked us if our little boy K has separation anxiety.  As far as I can tell, he doesn’t.  He’s used to seeing his Dad and I go to work everyday.  He even tells us “Ingat” and “Love! You!” when we go.  Teacher P said that’s good news, as most kids his age have separation anxiety.  Did she ask if the Mom has separation anxiety? Perhaps she should have 😛
