Went to Atfal yesterday morning. Picked up Kakak's report card and discussed about her emotional and intellectual development. For a person who missed 36days of schooling, I'd say her results were quite good. If only she attended all.. But then it's all written in Qada' and Qadar and I am accepting this wholeheartedly. I just hope she'll be healthier so that her pre-schooling would not be interrupted too much. The relief was that her teacher is confident she'll somewhat land among the top (in her tadika, at least) and she expects Kakak will not have major problem starting her Standard 1 in 2008. To her, Kakak posseses good self confidence from the way she socializes. She asks questions in class. She shows interest in what others do. She participates. Her concentration span has improved tremendously (she still daydreams tho, but much lesser). As for Iman, he's matured where socialising is concerned. He'd wait for abang2 and kakak2 transit then he can mingle around with them, looking at their books or busybody-ing with their homeworks. He, like I expect, throws less tantrum there. If he does, he'd attack Nor (poor.. poor... Nor) and runs amok to her.
We were also given list of fees for 2007, which left us checking all balances in all our saving accounts. True, to us the middle income parents, the sum costs a bomb (by our standard lahh). But alhamdulillah, we can still afford it. Tho not in 'graceful' way - which means cutting down expenses somewhere else to accomodate this. I'm not boasting but I'd like to give some kind of idea, financially, to parents who have kids about the same age like mine. So, if you're sending your kids to tadika in 2008, start saving from now! (note ~ nasihat kpd mereka yang bergaji seperti kami. mereka-mereka yang dapat gaji sorang satu 5-angka tak payahlah kot!) As for Iman, he'll be 3 next year (sebenarnya baru 2tahun sebulan, sbb dia lahir hujung tahun) so he'll have activities also. Among which - waterplay. Kecutlah anak kuu!! Anyway, I think once Kakak starts her primary, bulk of the expenses will be gone. Provided that we don't send her to private school.
Anyway, presenting Nurul Athirah's aquarium project..
