Today is the 2nd of October, and the schools are celebrating Children’s Day. Asked me and I still prefer it to be on the 1st. Nonetheless, it doesn’t matter as long as the children are enjoying themselves.
It’s the celebration of Children’s Day and the school had decided to have a garden theme. We had decided to let her be a little bee. And so, my sis had helped to buy the wings and antennae from SKP and Spotlight. (Luckily I’ve got a sister who is so enthusiastic too, unlike the lil’ hub *LOL*)
Early in the morning, I can already see the excitement in little milkie’s eyes. She knew that she’s going to be a little bee today. A little bee going to the school. And so very cooperatively, she dressed up and wore her wings and antennae.
By the time we reached the school, it was unlike the usual where she’ll cry to go back home. Instead, she simply asked “Why do we need to go to school?”. A sense of involvement, that’s what I feel. And that is very important for it gives the child a sense of belonging to the school too. Likewise, it is equally important to choose a school where other children participate as well. I’m really glad hers does, for I saw a little bee, a chicken (or bird) and some girls dressed in flowery dress. And all the rest of the children were dressed in bright colours!
Parents, it probably really won’t take long to spend a little time to chat with your little ones each day. To ask them how’s their day, to ask them what they did today, to tell them a little story, just a little each day…
