Unforgetful Day!!



Monday, 9th June 2008, must be an unforgetful day for Iz. Why? Because he is attending his first day in kindy and seem like he just can't forget his nanny + his daily morning routine of 'yam cha'

What I did is, keep telling him that he will be going to his aunty(nanny house) after he brush his teeth, change to uniform, etc...if I mention 'school', he will cry and insist of not doing anything. I even have to 'plot' with Jona to mention only aunty when Iz asked why change to uniform, why wear brief, etc...(Thank you so much, Jonathan for helping Momi out!!)


It is really heartbreaking of seeing Iz keep crying so many times in one day. He never cry so charm since he born till today. I thought of withdrawing him immediately from the school, when I see he so 'desperate' and 'unhappy' with schooling, but, Dadi stop me, saying, no matter how, he need to go through this phase of life - it is the matter of soon or later.


Before I decide to enroll him to this kindy, I did some preparation like telling him about it for the past 4 - 5 mths, but, everytimes I mention it, he will just say "NO"..and I even bring him along to fetch Jona from daycare daily, to familiar him with school environment and teachers as well....but, he just insist of NO.


Imagine, on first day, when I drop him in school, he cried so hard saying "Momi, don't go"....and then, when driver aunty come and fetch him to nanny house, he cried again, saying "I want my mommy"....."How come not my mommy come and fetch me one?" "I want to go my house".....


And, when driver aunty said, yes, I'm bringing you back home, he stop crying, but, immediately when he see driver aunty by pass his house, he keep crying again till reaching nanny house, keep saying "I want my house"..."I want my mommy"...."I dont' want aunty-nanny".....


When I go and fetch him from his nanny house later in the evening, his eyes look swollen like have been crying for several times....you said, heartbreaking or not?


Today, it is Dadi task to send him to school...Even before going to school, Iz has informed Dadi "Daddy, today you go to school with me, okie?" (Showing some pitiful face)..."I don't like the teacher"...."I so scared".....


And, true enough, when Dadi drop him at school gate, he cry again....and need teacher to hold him again and comfort him...


Now, I'm in dilemma of whether to forfeit the fee which I have paid throughout this year or just let him cry daily (not sure till when)...what do you think? Is Iz too young to go kindy? He is 2 years plus but, if calculate using year, he is 3 years old now...



"Baobei, Momi just want the best for you, and seeing you crying daily when sending you to school, isn't make Momi proud, instead it make Momi heart sad and heartbreaking. I pray to GOD to give you happiness. I always love you, baobei".

Ling That's Me said...

it's normal for kids to cry during the first few days in school.
give him sometime to adjust to it.
btw, how come you have to pay full year fees?

Wai Wai said...

All mommies felt for you... but I hope IZ will get over with it soon... the situation will certainly get better.. don't worry.. it's good to listen to what he got to say...he needs assurance and time to adjust..

Maybe the school is not fun for his age. You may consider changing or start later.

Emily didn't like her first kindy too. I stopped her and took her back to her nanny. When she was 4, then I started her to another kindy. Now she is happy with it.

at least Iz got kor-kor to accompany him, so mummy don't have to worry so much :)

Health Freak Mommy said...

Truly understand how you feel but don't worry, very soon he will love school. Do you know that some kids purposely cry when their mummy is with them? The same thing happened to Alycia and as soon as I left the school, she stopped crying! It's their plot to make mummy feel bad!

Chanelwong: True, imagine, on first day, Korkor has to 'skip' class to accompany him

Ling that's me: He cry less day by day, but, still got monday mood as my sis said...Nope, I just pay half of it...around RM 800+

Waiwai: I guess he get too much 'protection' from his mommy, till today, he just won't go to sunday school if I'm not accompany him...

Wen: Yup, I love fungates....ha,ha..thanks for the comfort word...Jona's teacher told me, her girl cry for a year!!!

Mybabybay: Initially, I did tho of stop him from school, but, when I travel last friday and call home, he didn't cry anymore..rather so happily tell me his stories...guess, he started to grow up liao...

MommytoQiQi: Fhuiyoo...really lucky that I got Jona in same school with him...cause he will keep look out for his kor kor to get confident....

HealthFreakMommy: True....Isaac just like that...when we sent him to school, he will cry, but, immedietaly in the school, he stop crying....I just wonder why he do like that....
