Yesterday my sons surprise me by showing me a file holder contain some "homework" for them from school teacher. I think they got really excited by carry the "blue file" around and with their name written on it. They always see their cousins carry the file when they are still in the same kindy. Now it's my sons turn, of course they feel so happy, and they never think carry that "file" means they have to do "homework".
Two of them spent the whole afternoon playing with the cousins, not write a page of words the teacher given. When i'm back home after work, they show me the exercise book, one book for number which got 3 pages need to finish, and one more exercise book for words also got 2 pages need to finish. Oh dear! This mummy start to get panic, quickly get the pencil, book and eraser ask them to sit down and write their homework.
It is not an easy job, more stress than my own job i think. They cannot sit still and now they are not writting on dotted line, and it's the word and number itself on the square box and lined exercise book. I find that they got problem on holding the pencil and write by their own too. Ask them to write "0" on the line exercise book, it will come out all the tiny tiny "0" 20 or 30 in a row. Sei mou? I have to erase then ask them to write again. Ask them to write "3" it will the other way round become "E" or "M", end up i have to hold their hand and write together with them one by one. *sigh sigh sigh* While i'm teaching Fearles, Cruz told me he is hungry, when i taught Cruz, Fearles was yawning away. I really got no patience, first day doing homework, i already feel stress and already start screaming. hahahhahahahhaha
Hmmmm, now i can feel how other mummies feel the stress when teaching the kids on their homework. Now, my "honeymoon" time had passed, no more after work can go "yam cha" , watch my favourite TV and read my magazines. I can't imagine when my boys start their standard one.
side note for Fearles: Last night while we are having dinner at mid valley, when we are waiting for the food to come, you use the pencil draw on the paper, daddy ask you how to write "2" since you already write one whole page of "2", you didn't write it but you draw a monster face on the paper. I had a good laugh and i didn't know you can draw quite well!!! hahahhahahah
