Beef Stew, Woohoo.

Pool at Bridge School (now pool of tears, mine and Zaki's)

It's third week of school and Zaki doesn't seem to be excited attending classes already. So far. she's missed 3 days already. I'm bummed out and can't help think it's all my fault.

She had a great first week until I had to fly to Cebu and mess the routine. The 2nd week, when I was away, teacher said that she demanded to go out after snacks and take her meds which I usually give except I'm not around that time. That's when trouble began and she wasn't too happy in school since. Saw it myself when I came back and took her to school that Friday and she was crying her lungs out the whole morning, I mean more than 3 hours with 4 different teachers trying to comfort her and all the while she was mumbling and pointing to me outside saying, "daddy". Excruciating.

I guess she felt betrayed and could be that she was fearful I'd leave her suddenly again.

Strangeways, here we come.

What's with the title? When you ask her what's the name of her school, instead of Bridge School, I'm sure it's what I'm hearing.

haha. beef stew.

you know, i used to do the same thing daw when i was a kid in play school. i'd cry for hours, pointing at my mom and yaya outside.

don't worry much about little zaki. she'll be fine, especially because she seems to have great parents. i think some kids are only like that the 1st few weeks or months in school.

god bless!!! :)
