My Honest Boy..

The moment my boy saw me at the school compound when I went to fetch him this evening, he blurted out.. "Mommy, I got most of my papers back except English, all careless mistakes". See, he knows his own weakness!!  Blek..  He then showed me his test papers in the car, all 90% and above, most marks lost on careless mistakes yet again.  Overall, he fared better than 1st term test.  

He went on and told me he spotted mistakes in two papers where the teacher had given him marks to his otherwise wrong answers, so bye-bye 3 marks.. I was like What!! Not Again!! You should have shown me the papers first before highlighting to teacher.  Teacher wouldn't know if you didn't highlight to her.  *bad mommy* but I just couldn't help it.  The moment I blurted out those words, I regretted as what followed was:

Ian : So, mommy.. you don't want me to be a good boy meh.. Were you a bad girl back then?  Teacher praised me for being an honest boy..  Bla..bla.. bla..
Mommy: .....................

I think I have a too decent boy here.  How is he going to cope in this cruel world when he grows up?  Oh, well.. Or am I thinking too much already?

Yeah, agree with Claire. Ian is an honest boy, that's a good value. Don't worry about him in this cruel world. He'll do better than you expected.

Good job, Ian!

p/s: But do be careful in the next exam. Double check for careless mistake :)

Hahaha! I would say something like you too, if I were to be in your position. It is really confusing when come to honesty issue like whan Ian has. It is so difficult to be a good parent.
