Khaleeq Goes to School

The time has come for my baby boy to go to school! He was so darn excited about the whole thing he actually carried his schoolbag on his back the whole journey to school.
Normally, we'd have a hard time leaving him at home in the morning. He'd be running to the shoe box to get his shoes and starts wailing as soon as we close the door. Pity, eh? So, that particular morning I made Khadra promise to take care of his brother at school. Her reply? "OK mom. I'll take care of my baby." So sweet, kan?
When we finally got to the school, there were already some parents there ensuring that their kid would settle down on their first day of school. I saw one new kid already crying his eyeballs out on the playmat-- sure enough his parents weren't around. :( Khaleeq went straight for the toy car, the toy house and then the slides. He was so jakun like that. And Khadra was always always two steps behind. (chewah!) I have to say though, with his BLUE apron on, I've still got some people asking if he was a he or a she! Shesh.. I really have to do something about the haircut!

After about 30 minutes staying over, we felt that he was settled in and made our way out of there. The look on his face when I picked them up later that afternoon was priceless. Eventhough he didn't say anything , I could tell that he was pretty pleased with himself. He's got this satisfied grin on his face all the time he was walking down the main steps to the car. I hope this would speed up his speech. I really pray that it does.

hi kak dilla, i think you may not know me since i join ADP3 for <2 years...transfer to Malacca. I've been reading your blog, about your happening family and cute kids. I think my son Faris is having the same prob with Khaleeq...slow in speech development (dob: 29/07/2004). Went to specialist but they said it is normal b4 these kids reach 3.5 yrs. Btw, do they hve any franchise for this kinder?

Hi Hiemash... not really. Datin Zainab is running it in her house at the moment and ada 2 classes aje. One for the kindergarten and one for nursery. The class size is about 12 kids.
I also went to a pead yang cakap it is normal for BOYS especially to speak a little later. She also told me to cut down on the TV time and more one-to-one time with him. Kalau ada masa, bawak pergi playgym ke apa ke..
Don't worry, once he opens his mouth, he wouldn't shut it, dear.. :)

hiemash said...

thats the problem..bcoz Faris loves to watch TV very much..especially Barney..and he would stay till 4.00am to watch while we were sleeping. need to re-adjust his body rhythm huh...but how eh? ;)

I am very interested in knowing about Early Years Playgroup. I have heard about it through word of mouth and it sounded pretty exclusive to me and I'd like to know whether you have any contact number or fax number for this playgroup please? do email me whenever you are free. Thanks so much. lisajoehari@hotmail.com

hiemash --> You need to paksa dia tidur at 10.30pm. Before that bagi dia penat. Go to a kid's gym or slides or playground, swim.. do whatever. Bila dah penat, dia tidur cepat. then they can start readjusting.

kaynie --> Your Jib is so comel too. I think sebab diorang ni putih, nampak macam pompuan! heh heh heh

anonymous --> Personally, I love what the school is doing to my kids. :) Especially seeing how Khadra has bloomed and how Khaleeq has started to become such a dashing young man. It just makes your heart swell with so much pride! Will e-mail you soon. :)

Hi. I similar to the another person (lisa) am interested in this Early Years Playgroup run by Datin Zainab. Over the weekend I met mothers who had previously sent their kids there too and only sang praises about her. Drove around to find this place but could not - now know why, since she is operating from her home (?). Appreciate it if you could email me contact details for Datin Zainab for me to make inquries. Thanks. Email is raziyan.samsudin@my.pwc.com
