"I miss my School"

"I miss my school", he said that last night just before went to sleep.
Oh, so sweet...made me smile!
I think that's the word every mom in the world want to hear from their kids about school.
Yesterday, my lil boy stayed at home because of his fever.
The word didn't just bring smile to me, but also convinced me more that I had chose the 'right' place for him to learn. At first, some of my friends had ever asked me,
"Do you really want to send your boy to that school?"

Because they're thinking that school is giving too much freedom for little kids in many ways, very different from others government public schools, has been running only for 4 years (not long enough to prove the quality, they said) and top of all, it's quite expensive.
Even my hubby was a little bit worried at first about my choice and these issues of the school, but not now.
I don't know why, I just believe and trust my heart that my boy would be at the best place for learning there. Simply just went together with my boy to one of my friend's house that her kid was studying there on 4th grade. We were seeing all his books and folders, chatting about the school. After that take a pleasure trip with the boy to the school, just like that.
I remember he loved the class at first sight.
then now... miss his school.

Hope I didn't make a wrong choice for him.
He was getting better last night and this morning I've sent him to school.

From 'AUNT' to 'ANUT' then ended to 'ALIEN'

I found often that every time I almost lost my patience when accompany Ian to learn how to spell or write, there's something funny happened and made me laugh. His innocent made this happened. Our main purpose would substitute with something else.
This was our conversation this Saturday morning when we were learning how to make a family tree picture and write down the words under every picture. He always write 'aunt' with mistake spelling 'anut'.

Me: "Ian...gosh, how come you write this 'anut' over and over again? The right spelling is A-U-N-T, Ian...."
Ian: (silent)
Me: "You know what, if you write like that it will sound like an alien's name..."

I tried to make a joke, so he won't be sad or at least want to write again.

Ian: "Hah? Alien? Really, is there an alien who have name like that?"
He became curious with his 'funny' facial expression.
Well, you can guess.. after that we won't talk again about the "AUNT" thing, but "ALIEN".
Wrong strategy from me, haha...maybe that's why he can't spelling other words either.
Often our 'talking' spread everywhere, but it's fun and we enjoy it. Ah, forget about "AUNT".
