It's a Philippine pre-school thing. A visible "Good job!" remark, stamped on students' wrists by the teachers after an activity in class. Every time I fetch her from school, I find myself comparing the number of her stars with that of others. If she's got less, I question her. I probe.
Then in my head I go, "What have I become?!". A student's mom, that's what.
In June, we enrolled Luna in kindergarden (she managed to skip nursery after a quick assessment conducted by one of the teachers) primarily cause she said it herself, "I want to go to school.". We thought it would be great for her to learn discipline and to acknowledge the authority of others. Good to know she's able to keep up with the pace. Unfortunately, just a week and a half into her schooling, she's already bored of it. Lucky for her, she's only doing this for a month. Why?
Because this is what we are up to...
The hubby's got a business conference in the United States and Luna and I are going with him. It's just a two week trip, but we're joining anyway so that we could do a little exploration within the region. As for Luna's studies, well, she's gonna be roadschooling (just a term I use which basically means homeschooling without a 'home') for the next two to three months. It ain't so much of an issue for us because in Australia, where we intend to reside 2015 onwards, school officially starts in the sixth year of the child's age.
And we can't wait to tell you more stories of diddle-daddling.
