@ 33 months 1 week 1 day
It has been almost 3 weeks since Ryan started school. Does he like his school? The answer is yes. He absolutely LOVES school. He can be so enthusiastic about school up till the extent he would tell me he wants to go school NOW eventhough we just got in the car on our way home from school. He will tell me who is who is his best friend, who is his fav teacher, whether he did go to the gym etc etc. His comprehension of the second language (mandarin) also markedly improved. He used to be very advese in learning new words but now he seemed more open.
In the last 12 days Ryan attended school, I made an effort to reach there at least half hour earlier before dismissal so to peep on the little fella. I am not sure I enjoy being a peeping Tom but I definitely take pleasure in discovering what my boy does in class without the mommy around. There was one time I saw him running after a bully (yes.. there’s a bully boy in his class who always snatches toys from other classmates) round and round (3 rounds to be precise) just to get back the toy this bully snatched from him earlier. It was quite hilarious. Glad I have a much handy camera nowadays that allows me to record all these on HD video. *yayyy!!!*
Last Friday Ryan’s school allowed a casual wear day inconjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration. Most of the kids came in their chinese traditional wear. They all look absolutely adorable and gorgeous.

Last Friday I went to fetch Ryan from school as usual. However, unlike any other day, that day I was greeted by a smiley tot running out of the classroom after spotting me, holding a handmade CNY card and wished me “????”.. and yes.. that was my boy. It was indeed special. That certainly made my day.
Last but never the least, here’s wishing all of you a Blessed and Happy Ox-picious Year too.
