Today is Hazel’s first day of school. Mommy me was having butterflies in my stomach early morning, because it is somehow my first school day with Hazel!
Early morning I started to plan her feeding time, packed the diaper bag, double and doubled checked, prepared her milk feed in advance, going through the essential oils I’m gonna bring with me, and after all these were done, I finally get to settle down a bit, and wait for the time to leave home.
Hazel fell asleep halfway through the journey, and was still sleeping when class started. I had to disturb her to wake her up. Lucky thing was there was no spasm after she woke up. So we joined the other 3 children on the mat and sing songs. Hazel was kinda confused to the unfamiliar voices and environment around her. I told her this will be her classroom in future, and she just looked at me, giving me the “50% understand, 50% don’t understand” look.
There was hydro therapy today but I was not informed, so I didn’t prepare swim wear for her and myself. Such a pity we missed it! It is a good thing to know that they have this therapy every week and was planned into the time table as one of the activities. So much things to look forward to!
The teachers are very nice, patience and helpful. The social worker and staff are nice as well. Am really happy on our first day at school.
Hazel didn’t really gave me a hard time today, though she kept wanting me to carry her. I guess I need to give her more time to adapt to school.
Hoping my application for the school bus can quickly be approved!
