I'm sure lots of you guys have been there. That first morning before the first day of school for your first born child. That's a lot of firsts going
on right there. Getting them all dressed up in their uniform, ok so not for the first time - couldn't resist having him try it on when we got it last
week. And then looking at your little one and thinking. *Where have the last few years gone?* and *Don't you look so grown up all of a sudden?* That
big inward sigh and the bursting proud feeling.
Then you pack his little school bag with him, putting the Buzz Lightyear cup and plate in the first pocket, his change of clothes in the second (for
those accidental moments), and his body temperature book in the back pocket. All school kids have to take their temp every morning over here,
something that become standard after SARS. Then the bag goes on the back... and hold on: wait just a second there nelly.
That tiny little bag is half the size of him!! He's still my little boy. *YEY* He's really looking forward to school, and seeing his teachers. The
Kindergarten is bilingual, so he has an English teacher and a Cantonese teacher. The kids start learning in Mandarin in their second year. His
Cantonese teacher is err - I don't remember having a hot kindergarten teacher - and his English teacher is a really nice lady from just outside of
London, she's an Arsenal fan, but nobody's perfect!
There really is no way of stopping him doing that! He's half Chinese and whenever he sees a camera he has this uncontrolable urge to make the victory
sign and grin like a loon! maybe he'll grow out of it, but I hope not!
Being a Uber proud Daddy right now and really wanted to share!
