This our very first time as parents to experience watching our child going up to stage and receiving an award. Ishi's recognition day was last thursday and we really reserved our time for this. Why not, this is a very special day for us. Our little girl seems to love the crowd clapping when the emcee called her name. If she's happy what more we are as parents? Daddy took a leave just to watch his little girl and I think he enjoyed that day.
This Saturday is another special day for her and for us too! It's her graduation day to be held at Max's Restaurant in Malabon. I know she was just "saling pusa" but we want her to feel her accomplishments in seven months straight of going to school. I am not expecting any honors to be awarded on graduation day, I am cool with what she got last thursday - Best in Arts and P.E., Best in Writing, Most Behave, Most Neat, Most Punctual, and Best in Attendance. What else can I wish for? I know she's not that active yet, her classmates were 1 to 2 years older than her, and she's not focusing yet in her studies. We just enrolled her because she said she wants to go to school already and we also wanted her to keep herself busy in school instead of watching dvd's all day!
And it's all worth it! I hope next school year, she'll be more focus and active. I cannot wait for tomorrows event, this is another "first" for us as parents...ISHI will be performing on stage. She will be dancing "sabay sabay tayo" and "I like You". She'll be performing a song too with her classmates of course. I hope she'll perform tomorrow (puwera sumpong). I am also excited to give her Baby Alive Go Bye Bye as graduation gift! =) Post her graduation soon!
