38 vs. 12
On his first day of school after the long school holidays...
Boy: Mom, today teacher said we are the protected lot in our class.
Boy: Because there're only 12 boys in our class!
Mom: Oh, then I have to go get a set of pinafore just in case you might need it one day. *evil mommy* Hahaha...
Mom: But then, which one would you prefer, with bullies or the girls??
Boy: *answers without hesitation* Girls!!
Before the classes were streamed, he had bullies in his class and he hated it so much. I am glad that along the journey, He toughens up and learns to handle them himself.
The class had their first PE session last Friday and they played the passing ball game...
Boy: Not fair! The girls passed the ball to girls and only girls!
Mom: Hmmm... Girls don't like Iron Man. Guess for the next talent show, you'll have to dress up in a character that girls'll like... a Barbie?? *bad mom here grins*
Boy: *shows me his disgusted look* Yucks! I don't want to be a sissy la. Some girls DO like Iron Man and boy stuff. How I wish CY (A girl, his good friend from his previous school with whom he still keeps in touch) was here in my class. *Sighs!*
The boy has been "moving" ever since he started primary school. First, moving from his previous school after almost two years there. Now that he is in primary 4, he is all alone again with his classmates of slightly more than 1 year scattered everywhere in different classes. I am glad he is adaptive to the change around him though during the first 3 days of school, he kept telling me that going to school's a drag! "Nothing is constant except change" was what I told him whenever he said that.
