It's not him, It's me...

5 January 2009
Umar's first day at school.
He's very excited, woke up very early in the morning. But his class only starts at 11.30am.

Anyway, it's not about him, it's me. If you are looking for the one who are anxious about this first day of school, it would be me. Yup, me.

Umar was so excited and worry-free. He even refused my request to stay until class is over.
I was so nervous and worried about him. He is a good boy..indeed he is. He is mature, yup, true. And he is sooo like the father. So calm, and never think of the risks. Anyway, what risk does he has to face on his first day at school? That's what Mr AB said, when i tell him about it.
Hello...yeah...he is not facing the BIG risks...but he is just going to be 7 years old, he has never been away from me. He attended preschool only for a few months. And now...

Me : What if he couldn't find his class?
Mr AB: Come on mama, he's a smart boy. How on earth, couldn't he find his own class?? Anyway Umar, if you want to wander around other people classes, it's okay, I did that on my first day, just because of curiosity. (I replied that with a good stare.)

Me : What if he doesn't know what to buy during recess?
Mr AB: Then let he be hungry. He's smart, he could figure that out.

Me : What if he couldn't find his shoes after 'solat'?
Mr AB: He'll get a good smack from me for not looking after his own stuff.

Me :Papa, when u send him to school today, make sure you send him to his class. wait until he enters his class.
Mr AB: Mama, you send him. If I go, I just stop at the gate.

Me :Umar, you study well okay. Make sure you get number 1 in your exam. If you get that, then only I'll let papa buy you PSP. If you can't achieve that, if your dad still buy the PSP, it will be mine until you get better result.
Umar :Mama, if it's yours, can you ask papa to download spiderman's, spongebob's, racing games for you, in your PSP?
Me : If it's mine I will download girlie game.
Mr AB: Umar, this PSP thing, between the two of us okay. We discuss about it later. And no, numbers is not important. You just go, learn and have fun. Anyway mama, have you seen his text book, he knows everything until the last page.
Me : Yea, I know, I taught him all that.

And when I sent him to school today, I walked him until the foyer. Then he queue to the canteen. When he queued, I felt pathetic, mmm..no...I felt sad, mmm...touched...well, I'll go with sad. Yup, sad. He is always an active boy, playful, cheerful, and I can't help it, seeing him obediently queueing in a single file, walking slowly towards the canteen. OMG, now I think I should HOMESCHOOL him....

Getting ready to school



All set to go


He's so excited. I was the only parents taking pictures that morning. Well, may be they were others, but not that I am aware of.

It's normal...it's always the mother who's over anxious he he...tha father's always cool.

Your Umar will cope well in school, don't worry. From his look, I can tell.
