Moving Up

It may sound cliché but time really flies so fast and I didn’t notice that we already finished one school year. My son graduated last Thursday and now ready to move up to next level. Can you believe that nakapagpatapos na kami ng Nursery and more years to come. Hehe!

When he started school I was scared and nervous because I’m not sure if this is the right time to enroll him and I’m not sure if he is really ready but I know I have to accept the fact that he is no longer a baby. 

The start was not easy; my son was excited to go to school but not inside the room. He just wanted to stay in the playhouse.  He was not interested in doing his assignment especially the writing and reading part. Reviewing for his exam is not his thing so it was really a challenge as a mom. But now, I’m happy and proud to say that he changed and improved a lot. If there’s “Most Improved Student” award, I will give it to my son.

I was surprised to see my son participating in all their activities such as Linggo ng Wika, United Nation, Halloween, Christmas Party, and Family Day. He was so happy singing and dancing. I was really surprised because my son is such a shy boy so seeing him performed in school was a big leap. Little by little his self-confidence, self-esteem, and social skills were developing. 

One of the things that scared me is the pressure; it seems that most people (family + friends) I know were expecting that my son will get a medal. As a mom, I wanted my son to receive an award; there are only three awards in their school, Outstanding, Deporment and Merit Award so I was a little bit sad when he did not get any award. But I have to remind myself “Grades don`t measure intelligence, and age doesn`t define maturity”.

I’ve realized that my son doesn’t need to give me an award to prove himself because I’ve seen his hardwork all throughout the school year. I know how hard it is for him to learn how to write, read and memorize his lessons. Ethan, always remember that I’m happy and proud of you and I love you with or without award. Now, I know you are “Ready for the Whole New World”


Ready for the Whole New World

The first day for you
Who would have thought that we would be
Just like a family
We all joined hands and helped to learn and understand

As the years gone by
Funny how time just
Now you got all you need from me you learned your ABC’s
You can read and write your 123’s
Now your ready ready for a whole new world

Through all of ups and downs, smiles and frowns
You still learned your letter sounds
Now your ready ready for a whole new world

Now today is our last day
And soon you’ll be on your way
And thought the year must end
You’ll remember when
We were all the best of friends
As I watched you grow I will always know

Now you got all you need from me you learned your ABC’s 
You can read and write your 123’s
Now your ready ready for a whole new world
Through all of ups and downs, smiles and frowns
You still learned your letter sounds
Now your ready ready for a whole new world

Now I got all I need from you
Can’t believe this year is through
Ready for a whole new world
Through all of highs and lows
I’ve had a year to grow you taught me all I need to know
Ready for a whole new world

Now you got all you need from me you learned your ABC’s
You can read and write your 123’s
Now your ready ready for a whole new world 
Through all of ups and downs, smiles and frowns
You still learned your letter sounds
Now your ready ready for a whole new world
Ready for a whole new world Ready for a whole new world
