Edward’s First Day at Nursery 1



We were late for class! We just came back from our fun but tiring trip to Thailand on 31st Dec. The boys weren’t back to their sleeping schedule yet. And so… We woke up late on 2nd Jan!

Daddy, mummy and Oliver accompanied Edward in the classroom for about 15 mins and we hugged and kissed goodbye. Edward was so strong and tried to distract himself from whatever feeling he was going through at that moment. He didn’t allow himself to have a long goodbye with us.

He went on to play with his 2 classmates. There were only 3 of them. The other 6 will come in February because they were born after June 2010.

Ms Sarah and Wen Lao Shi look like great teachers 🙂 so we are pretty happy with that.

As we left Edward and headed to the hawker centre nearby, mummy couldn’t help but miss him and worry that he might be crying and worried how he was going to cope if he was missing us. Ms Sarah said she would give us a call if our child cries until they vomit. That’s bad … But I guess they can’t always call parents if the students cry only a little bit.

Waiting from 8:30 to 10am was such a torture for me! I couldn’t wait to see the classroom door open and see how Edward is.

I was so happy once I saw him again after class. He looked pretty glad too that he saw us picking him up (and not abandoning him). The teacher said he did not cry one bit.

What a relief!

Mummy and daddy are SO proud of Edward! We know he miss us but we know how hard he tries to enjoy the class while coping with being away from us. So so proud of him.

Second day was find too 🙂 no crying.
