The Attilas have been on (official) holidays since late February. Summer Class will start on May 5th, but I am not sure I am ready yet.
I know how next Monday morning will sound :
Me, squatting down and looking at Mr Attila in the eye: “I really need to go to work today“, and repeating for the 100th time “there will be no crying when I drop you off Mon Amour, ok?”
And him, patting my shoulder: “yes Maman! I know you can do it!“.

Awww. Yes, you can do it! 😀 (I was not expecting that by the way; good story!)
Thanks dear, I need those encouragements 😛
Oh dear… You can do it!!!
Thanks so much for your warm words ! Maybe try just one week of school, and play it by ear after… ;)X
And decide to home-school…
Honestly, I am considering the option .. I am not so happy with the Asian teaching methods, very competitive and not considering the emotional intelligence of the kids. I kinda started with my daughter during the holidays, with maths and reading, and she loved it. Her teacher was pretty amazed by the results. I am looking for methods, ways to do it properly in the long run…
Like a factory, isn’t it? I have to say, I’m pretty happy that there is a program we can use that’s based on the public school curriculum. Maybe you find an international school curriculum online somewhere?
Totally! I m looking for one actually .. If I want to be like the other mums here, would have to enroll my 2.5 yo to extra curricular activities every afternoon till 5 😛 seriously …
Sick… Sometimes it seems as if they want to get rid of the kids for as much as possible… It’s the same here! And as a homeschooling family you often get to hear the “how can you stand having them around all the time?” And “It would drive me nuts”… Well, I love having my kids around (although they do drive me nuts sometimes…)
You are so right. Can you believe that when I gave birth in Thailand, the nurses were astonished because I insisted to have my baby by my bed and feed him on demand. One finally told me “it is not common here M’am. You will have a hard time sleeping” (!!!)
Oh wow! That’s pretty shocking!
In Thailand, my OB told me that most (rich) women go for a C section not because they need it, but because it is convenient. Little cultural clash 😉 Then the babies are “trained” to eat every 3 or 4h. Et voilà! For them, me and my expat friends were a bunch of weird masochist hippies 😉
Haha… Wow… How crazy! Well, welcome to the masochist club then! Let’s celebrate it!!!
oh, that look! 🙂
All the things they say about Mothers totally falling for their sons? I am afraid it is totally true 😛
he is YOURS and he is adorable. he will be a future heartbreaker! 🙂
Absolutely fantastic! Xx
Thanks Lucile ❤
Thanks Donna 🙂 I wish I could hide in his classroom at least for the first 2 days (man, did I just write that?? I am turning into my Mum!!)
Lol that happens
Absolutely adorable pic and equally adorable response! I’m sure it’ll be tough to go back to school next week…Ugh, I always hated the first day of school after summer break but then it all became the usual routine after about 1 week and all worked out well. Good luck and keep us posted!
PS What an amazing beach scene! What palm trees! What blue water! AHHH!
THanks Lia 🙂 Tomorrow is the big day and I think I am the only one having butterflies in my stomach… At least we ll spend the next week by this beach, so I can recover from the first days of school 😉 We ll give home schooling a try, one week a month first, talk about a kindergarden..
I’ll be thinking of you all!
