The one with... our plan for Khayr in 2013

Parenting these days is not easy huh? Information overloaded on the kind of expectation the society has on our kids. The do's the dont's the rights and the wrongs at what age and at which development stage. Not easy to filter all those out from our parenting system but to me the bottom line is -- every parents want to provide and do the best for their kids. Agree? :)

Having said that, we tried to enroll Khayr to a playgroup class last year (which means masa dia 2 tahun dulu) but we feel that he was still too young then. Nampak macam tak ready je.. :p Now that he's turning 3 in this year of 2013, we are revisiting back the idea of getting him to join any playgroup session. To us, the main thing is we want him to start socialising and learn how to 'take instruction'. Learning can come along as he progresses in life. For now let it be through fun and play session.

Alhamdulillah after few trial classes here and there we finally settled for one. It's still early to tell but we hope he likes it and most important, we hope he will learn something out of it while enjoying it.

In the course of me searching for such a place, the feedback that I received from them is that according to his age group, Khayr should be enrolled to the 'drop-off' kind of class. But as a start, we are going for the parent-accompanied type first because we feel that he's not ready to be independent yet (well I know I am NOT ready to let go yet! haha) so hopefully once he settled in, and I'm settled in (drama mama) then perhaps I can start letting him go to be on his own with teacher and friends. Sobs my boy has grown up :'( and I'm having separation anxiety!

Oh and this is made possible all thanks to my bosses for allowing me to take up the flexi working arrangement:

And also a modification to my role and my KPI. Hope all goes well.. ..... insyaAllah.

Ke arah hidup work life balance yang lebih baik ho yeah! :)
