Allysha dah masuk standard 1 this year..being the first born in the family masuk darjah satu..kecoh semua orang, atuk nenek..mommy lagi laa..cuma Baba aje yg cool..(macam biasa, suka ambik sikap berkecuali) I took a week off just to make sure she settled and kids nowadays..memang independent, the 2nd day dah larang I tunggu...akhirnya mommy siap make new friends dgn other mommies yang bosan menunggu kat sekolah:)
Now she's adjusting her hectic day..in the morning, atuk and nenek will pick her up for her agama class, and noon she will be going to her sekolah kebangsaan. Sometimes..at 8 pm, while we were busy preparing for dinner dia dah mengantuk tak boleh tahan2 dah mata..so kesian.
On weekends, she has her ballet on saturday and Piano on sunday, since Ballet I think is the less important (ikut perkiraan mommy) so I told her to stop after taking her exam in March..she's soooo furious...insist to continue her dance class....she has her bff in the same ballet class with her, that's make it more fun for her. This is her 2nd year in ballet class which she took in Beaconhouse last year and continue with the dance school this year. After her exam in March she will be moving to a new level.
My dilemma now, I plan for her to go for other classes related to her academic..and ballet is not something I want her to pursue further...somehow she loved it so much..mommy pening fikir how to send her to other classes kalau jadual packed macam gini..Friday night, mommy sure dah bising2 paksa dia practice piano...nak kena practice ballet lagi for exam..now considering Enopi and English at British council.
I know I should chillax and not worried too much since she's still small, but I guess..I need to train her early....get the right foundation..and once the foundation is strong she'll be ready to face the challenge..I takut sangat she's left behind...you know laa how school nowadays, PMR aje berpuluh ribu dpt 8As.
How do you mommies out there handle this kind of pressure?
I had a conversation with a friend recently, I think being a mother I feel obligated to give the opportunities to my kids..even now nak get a handbag pun berkira2 unlike before..the kids matter kena settle dulu..so kalau nak kelek Prada tu..I nak kena make sure the kids must be given the priority and dah fulfilled..now I understand my mom's dilemma when we were kids. Lucky, this year just the twins go to pre-school. .at least a quarter of our yearly fees has reduced. Last year, Allysha and the twins' fee dah boleh beli LV Speedy Multicolor (one of mommy's dream hbag)...mengeluh je mommy bila awal2 tahun macam gini:( Nampaknya..mommy kena keep dreaming and tak tahu bila mommy's dream boleh tercapai:(
