Welcome, School Season!

Are you a preschooler parent like me? If you are, then I sincerely wish you're already done shopping for school supplies. The lines at the cashier in the nearby National Bookstore outlet is never short. I try to stay away from malls these days because the mere thought of the crowd makes my head ache already.

I used to like braving the mall crowds in June. But since my kid started school, I start collecting supplies (especially the generic ones like pencils, erasers, spare crayons, tissue paper rolls, liquid soap) even before the school year ends. I have lost patience for shopping for hours. I have become the most boring person in this whole wide world. (hehe).

My kid officially starts her final year in preschool tomorrow. And just like last year's, I am taking a day off from work to personally take her and fetch her from school. We requested for her to remain in the same schedule as last year's so we won't have to worry about waking her up at the crack of dawn yet. I want to take things easy this year. I want to relax and enjoy the rest of the ride since I know that once she starts grade school, it's going to be a whole new different ball game already.

READY FOR OUR NEXT ADVENTURE!
I also love that I can finally be true to the claim that I am no longer an amateur preschooler mom now. I feel more confident now. I am more at ease with approaching the teachers. I now have prior experience to tell me when to worry and when to let go. See? It does get better. It always gets better.

I hope the same goes for my kid. But if she probably sees me more relaxed, she will probably follow my lead.

Here's to a fresh new adventure for us Maia! I hope all my wishes for this year will come true as I really want us to just have fun and enjoy and be free of pressure.

Good luck, Maia and Mommy. I will also be an official preschool mom this year with Naomi as kinder in a big school. Mas kabado yata ako kesa kay Naomi. Cheers to us and hope our kids will enjoy school! :)

Hello Dew, thank you for dropping by. Maia goes to a Waldorf-inspired daycare every summer since she was 2. There was a point that I seriously considered sending her to a Waldorf school no matter how far it was. But then when the time came that we really had to make up our minds, we decided to embrace traditional schooling na lang because that is what we see to be a more sustainable option for us that Waldorf school (the nearest one is in Sta. Elena (near Sta Rosa Laguna). I think ikaw pwedeng pwede since you work in Sta Rosa right? Try to visit the school once with Raviv. Maia really likes the Waldorf environment but we had to pick the best option. Broke my heart din talaga but I had to let that option go.

Wow! Ako as early as now, scouting na for Raviv's pre-school. It pains me because if only I can, I want him to be at Rainbow (his toddler school)pa rin. I really like his school environment. So I hope I could find a pre-school that we would all love as well.

PS: Have you also been doing a research about Waldorf schools? Coz I am seriously considering a Waldorf school, at least flor pre-school.

Maggie -- ako muntik maiyak when Raviv no longer cried for the first time when I left him at school.
