Anecdotes from School

The playground at Little Big is Jay’s favourite part of school. No doubt about that!



Everyday when I ask him what he did in school, his very first reply would be: “Playground!”

One of the things I look forward to when I fetch him from school (I mean, apart from seeing my handsome prince, of course), is the informal feedback I will get from his teachers. Yesterday when I went to the school, the principal and his class teacher spoke to me and gave me two very funny anecdotes about Jay’s behaviour in school that made me laugh out loud.

Funny Story #1: The kids were told to go out to the playground and have fun. Jay obediently went along. Barely a minute later, he came back in, declared that “I am very tired” and sat on the steps of the classroom.

Funny Story #2: Once when the kids were all also in the playground, the teacher noticed Jay sitting along on the bench. With Bear-Bear in the far end of the bench, and he looked like he was having a conversation with Bear-bear! The teacher said he even looked very pleased with himself and very contented.

Hahaha! I think it is pretty amazing how kids “grow” into their own personalities, and say and do such funny things in the meantime!
