Hannah has been with her nursery school for a full one term of 10 weeks now. The both of us decided it was about time to speak to her teachers and see how she’s been in school. We do get the regular report cards, updates from her Nanny who picks her up after school everyday, but nothing beats talking to her teachers on-site.
We made the decision to drive her to school this very morning, and with the benefit of hindsight now, we might not want to do it again. Hannah bawled when we tried to leave her with her teachers. She normally has no difficulty arriving in school by her bus everyday, so it was just separation anxiety again on her part. Her wore her very swollen eyes from that wailing for the rest of the school morning, up till when we returned to pick her up and speak to both her teachers. From them: Hannah gets along very well with her classmates and seems quite well-adjusted and happy, and loves to sing. Then again, her teacher remarked that when Hannah cries, she takes forever to stop LOL.
I was also taken aside by her Chinese teacher too who’d noticed that Hannah seems rather disinterested when her class watches videos of Chinese songs to learn the language, and asked if we speak Mandarin at home. Whoops – the truth is out now.=(
Pictures. These were all taken after school when we picked her up.
It was a pretty tough day, if the number of times she bawled is any indication. She bawled in the morning at school, bawled at the store when she had that ‘accident’, bawled when she didn’t want to go to her Nanny’s in the afternoon, and bawled when she was put to bed.
