An End of A Chapter

Dear Diary,
January 2010 - Imran entered pre-school. First day of school, I was choked with emotions. Felt like only yesterday I held him in my arms for the first time, he was still a baby. All of a sudden, there he was walking into his classroom. He was so eager to start learning and meeting new friends. I waited outside his kindergarten on the first day just to keep an eye on him. Fortunately, he adapted well to his new environment. He looked happy every time I peeked to check how he was doing. So, second day onwards he was on his own.
February 2010 - Imran started taking school van to kindergarten. Uncle Low, his van driver, is a very responsible man.
May 2010 - Hubby and I went to Imran’s kindergarten for his report card. I already wrote an entry about this before. As days went by, his writings and reading improved.
November 2010 - Hubby and I took another two trips to the kindergarten. The first trip was for his report card. Imran’s results were not as good as previous semester; however, he’s still among the top ten in his class. The second trip was for his graduation day. Jangan tak tahu, tadika sekarang ada konvo tau! The same mushy feeling I felt on his first day revisited me and I had tears in my eyes. Ermayum, a friend of mine, wrote in her blog about this uncontrollable motherly feeling. I totally understand how she felt because I experienced the same thing. Whenever Imran’s eyes searched and found mine, that feeling surged and tears welled up my eyes.




The school term ended in the middle of November. Imran was sad to part with his teachers and friends. Eh, sentimental gak anak teruna aku sorang ni. He has his ups and downs. Along the way, there were days when he showed so much enthusiasm and there were days when he needed pushes and coaxes. The graduation day marked the end of a chapter in his life. He got many more chapters to go through. I hope he perseveres and pray he’ll succeed in life.

Unai, will he be in standard 1 next year? I had to send Auni much earlier sebab masa tu ica kerja...so 1yr++ dia dah pi nursery...it took her 2 months to adjust. Teacher dia kata dia nangis daily sampai 2 bulan and they even repeat the statement masa dia konvo last yr. This yr she missed her konvo coz kitaorg pindah..but dia mmg tak sabar nak go to a new school next yr. Hope your big boy and sweet girl will have lots of happy moments kat school nanti ya..

As - Tak sedar masa berlalu. Tup tup nanti dia dah besar panjang masuk univ, keje, nak kawin etc. Membuat diriku ini rasa tua je....

Fith - Ye Fith, next year masuk darjah 1. We'll see how pulak perangai dia. Baby Irfan pun dah nak masuk 2 bln. Cepatnya....

Zarin - I think all mothers have this feeling. Airmata keluar je macam empangan pecah. Memang tak boleh nak control.

Ermayum - Boleh, boleh....tp hantaran jgn letak tinggi sangat hahahaha.

Ica - Yup Ica, next year masuk darjah 1. Can't wait to see how he'll fare. Sian Auni...nasib baik tak trauma hihi. I think it will be easier with my girl kot because dia cenderung sikit bab learning ni. If gi kedai, she'll pick books/stationery over toys.
