Yesterday she came home telling me that one of her English exercise books has been used up. And Puan Siti told her to get a new book from the book shop!🙄 (aiyo, when I hear this, phobia lai liao…🙄🙄 what if the money bullying thing happen again🤭)
Me: So you want me go and buy or you buy yourself? 🙄🙄
Noelle: I go buy.
Me: Did teacher tell you how much is one book? 🙄🙄
Me: Ok, I will give you the exact amount and put in your purse (despite wearing sports wear today). Go buy the book yourself. Don’t go show off your money. 😒😒🙄🙄
In trust and in faith, I put in her again.
(I can save a lot more worries if I walk into the school book shop before school ends to get it for her, actually)
It is A small thing to many; BUT…I don’t know how to describe this feeling. I have been thinking about the ‘what ifs’ again. I don’t want her to get into that ‘trouble’ again BUT she needs to GROW UP and face the ‘thing’ herself. After all, she is just in P1 – if she doesn’t learn now, when will she learn?
As we approach her school pick up time, I was thinking what will the likely outcomes from today! 🤭😆 Definitely a ‘phew’ after she told me that she has bought it!😂😂😂 She told me that she went and buy it herself. BUT W and another girl did go to the bookshop. She queued herself and it took quite some time because there was a long queue. 🙄🙄🙄 (so many things to buy from bookshop meh?) She told the book shop keeper that she needs a book no.4; then she was told how much was the book (she did say that W told her it was RM1.50😒 instead of RM1.20 but it proves to her that ‘believe in’ teacher more than her friend). She took out the exact amount, paid and left without waiting for her friends because she was afraid that she will be late for class. (Nice to hear that she knows about punctuality)
It is a relief to see that she is capable of handling and in fact, growing out from this situation.
