aidanangelia

I recall being all excited last year when it was Aidan's first day in Primary One! And now he's in Primary Two already and being the ever-so-loving mom *coff*, I took leave yesterday so that I could be with him on his first day of P2! (Okay lah, I knew I would be grumpy going back to work after the nice long NY weekend so I took one more day off!) Met several pals whose kids were in ACSJ P1 this year and seeing their anxious faces reminded me of how gancheong I was last year too :)


The boy was so eager to get back to school and kept asking me throughout the school holidays when school will be starting. Not that he loves school that much that he can't wait to start studying. He basically misses his school pals and wanted to play with them again. I guess I shouldn't be complaining :)

Okay..this time round, I didn't lug my dslr to the school. Was playing around with the toy camera app on my iphone..I like the lomo effect :)


















The year 2009 went by in a whirl and I can't exactly say that it has been that eventful. Well, 'cept for the boy attending Primary One (and that trying period making him study for his exams) and also the purchase of my own property. Saw many new births, several hookups, and unfortunately more separations/divorces.

Personally, I don't think I've achieved much so there are several goals that I've set for myself which I truly hope to accomplish (those who are close to me will know exactly what) by the end of this year. I've changed too. I'm definitely less extroverted as before and more mellow (and boring) I guess. Age is definitely catching up. Oh yes..I'm grown horizontally too *sob* By at least 6 kg!! On the positive side, my boobies have grown bigger but unfortunately, so have my tummy & derriere!! Have been indulging too much in good food so I guess I should really start watching my weight or at least make an effort to work out consistently. Many have asked me about my social/love life too..I really don't want to say much but I think i'm still mentally not ready for anything. But I'm definitely optimistic :) So I'm gonna end off my blog entry with this quote that I like..

6kg? You must be exaggerating lah. LOL.

Anyway, love the second photo of Aidan sitting on the staircase with his schoolbag.

(And did he really have his shirt tucked in at the end of the day? Haha.)

i wish i wasn't :( I was 52kg last year and I just weighed myself two days ago and it was like 57.8kg!! *Wail*

heh..surprisingly, it was still tucked in but he'd actually forgotten his sweater so he had to go back to his class to retrieve it...! Hai~~

having read so many entries of kids started P1, P2, kindie etc....i feel guilty for having slept thru it all on gabe's first day of P2 hhahahaha....ming did the honor of resuming "normal life" of getting him up at 5:50am to get ready for the school bus..... :p
angeliatay
Jan. 5th, 2010 06:58 am (UTC)
hehe dont need to feel guilty lah!! but to be honest, i did it too because i rely on nenita to bring him to school most of the time so first day of school must show some effort lah. Aidan still complained that I was taking my own sweet time and that he'll be late!!! At least I need not wake up/leave the house as early as u guys!!!!

That's a really great quote!! Also, great to see that Aidan is social and misses his friends so much. Hikaru was also looking forward to the start of school so that he can play with his friends!

But I trust already nothing happen leh!
The boy was so eager to get back to school and kept asking me throughout the school holidays when school will be starting.

Before I read the next line, I was like... zhun bo???  Hahahahaha!

That photo of Aidan on the stairs with his school bag is the kind that can print in calendar one!  Very nicely taken!

i saw your fb post about the holding hands thing. i almost died laughing. your son is so precocious! but the teacher should have handled it better. like one day hold one friend's hand. why is she making him choose? stupid woman.
angeliatay
Jan. 6th, 2010 02:56 am (UTC)
but no matter what, he had to choose whose hand he holds that very moment/day!! i think he was conflicted hahaha..aiyoh, kids ah!

eh, i cannot scold stupid woman coz that woman is his form teacher and i must be nice to teachers :D
