It's schools resumption week and I had to take my first kid to school, it was such an emotional moment for me as he will be living in school as boarder, I won't get to see my baby for a month as we are only allowed to visit them once in a month. Ironically the little dude was excited, his excitement was out of this world. He has been arranging his suitcase for close to a month and the suitcase sleeps on the bed with him...lol.
He'd ask all the silliest questions concerning living in school and I never failed to tell him what he should expect and emphasized the need to be an obedient student and cleanliness is next to Godliness.
DAY 1 IN SCHOOL.
First thing on monday morning we were at the school premises waiting to be welcomed by the school authority, my Lil dude got the warmest reception, it made me to shed an emotional tear. In a split second after we Were checked and certified ok to check him into the hostel my Lil dude was already mixing up with with his classmate's.
I've been so emotional for 2 nights now, I miss my Lil man, I miss his constant calling of mummy, I miss his house chore supervision, I miss him so much...sobs. I know i'm doing the right thing by allowing him to live in school, it'll teach him to be independent and learn to manage people around him and resources, it'll teach him to keep to time accurately and so much more.
Did you go to boarding house and what did it teach you?
