Finally! Hell week is over! Parang feeling ko I was the one who took the exam. I was so anxious for my little kuya this week coz we had our first taste of quarterly exams. I was confident my son could handle most subjects but worried about his AP/Fil. I couldn’t help myself, I made sample exams complete with drawings during my lunch break at work. I used these along with the worksheets I downloaded from an online site.
I never thought I would go as far as making exams but there was something inside me that kept on asking “Have you done enough?!” A month into the school year I overlooked one homework. When he came home he was so sad that the teacher put a sad face on the page of the book for not doing his homework. And this was for Math! So, imagine the devastation! While I used the incident as a learning moment for both of us telling him he is a big boy now and needs to learn to check his homework by himself, it still stuck with me. I still feel guilty thinking about it.
This growing up thing and letting go of the kids is pretty hard pala! Coz in my head I get it, but the application part apparently is difficult.
Yesterday the exam grades came and frankly, I was happy with the scores. Nope, not perfect but good enough. I was proud of my boy. He really is adjusting well in big school and I hope I’m adjusting well with him too.
