The moment we entered, Ethan was ushered into the classroom by Aunty Mei a.k.a da Boss. He did not cry nor did he ask for me. He was extremely SILENT! He sat there all by himself, refusing to open his mouth (except to drink from his water bottle)! And he remained SILENT the whole one hour there. Every facilitator tried to warm up to him but to no avail. All he did was to colour a picture of a cat. Finally, after his hour was up, he was permitted to leave the room.
Once out of that room, upon seeing me, he ran to me and hugged me so tight. When I started to talk to the facilitators, only THEN did Ethan start talking to them too. My bad! I forgot to introduce him to them in the first place. He went into the classroom not knowing who they were so he kept quiet all by himself!
So we extended another hour for him and happily he read to ME while the facilitators watched. He was fast-tracked into mid of Stage 2.
No photos this time as I refrained from entering the classroom during his lesson. I wanted him to be independent and now I know he can survive without me being there.
What have I come out with today? He will go for his lessons in the mornings, 3 times a week without me. I will teach there, twice a week in the evenings and he will tag along, not to learn but to play. Good deal? I think so too :D

Home is where MY heart is.
I am a mother to two boys; Ethan and Ayden and a wife to Darling William. I'm a stay at home mum who blogs to break the monotony of life and to avoid feeling jaded. Would love to get to know all the Super Mommies and Daddies and Babies or Singles out there with the hope that we can learn more from each other. Most of all, I am a happy person, and I hope YOU are too.
