I received a note in IY’s communication book a few weeks ago that he will be performing in his year end concert and graduation day, of course mommy sangat excited!
“Ilhan Yusuf will be doing an Arabic sketch as a Monkey”
… Errk!! LOL! Monyet pun boleh lah!
Everyday he comes back from school and singing an I-wish-I-could-understand Arabic song and started jumping like a monkey. Siap ajar kita lagu tu macam mana nak nyanyi. And siap betulkan pronunciation kita lagi. “Mama, it’s ka..kaa…not KA..KA..”..(errr, they both sound the same to me boy!).
Then the day came and he couldn’t be more excited. Mama and Ayah sudah ready dengan camera and video. We were sitting a bit far and I was worried tak nampak dia nanti. Little Z was not feeling well that day. He was recovering from a nasty viral fever. Although fever has subsided, he was still coughing and budak ni kalau batuk, tak muntah dia tak sah. So we were on standby mode when he started to make funny sounds with his little coughs. Nasib baik la dia tak muntah dalam dewan tu. Instead he decided to vomit in the car on our way home. Terima kasih adik.
*mama tarik rambut*.
Back to IY’s performance, mama seperti biasalah excited sampai turun bawah duduk bersila depan stage (with the rest of the excited parents, of course — bukan saya seorang ye!) untuk amik gambar AND video sekali. Terrer tak buat 2-in-1? Sangat lah tidak professional. The video goyang-goyang but mommy don’t care. Asalkan dapat capture. Where is Ayah? Well, adik was having his morning nap on daddy’s lap. So mommy has to go solo lah.
After the show, the teachers held the kids in the waiting room sebab ada prize giving at the end of the event. I wasn’t aware of that (tak mention dalam communication book). So we waited for a while. Z was getting a little anxious by then so Ayah went for a walk with him outside the hall. Rupanya IY was receiving award for his achievement in class! He got the award for BEST IN HAFAZAN! Awww, daddy missed that. Nevertheless, we are proud of you son.
So that’s the end of his 5yo kindy. Next year he will be in his final year before the real school starts. Wow, the word real school sounds so so surreal to me. *sigh*. Besar dah dia.
By July, we will know if he gets the SK school we registered him for. We still haven’t decided if it’s going to be Adni all the way or not. Maybe yes. Maybe no. We’ll just wait and see.
