It seems these days that kids grow up way too fast. Gone are the days when children cry to leave their mum on the first day of school, now they shrug off their mother's hugs and brush off their kisses, and skip off to the big scary world. The cause of this is perhaps children are already accustomed to not seeing their working mums, so going into another strange place without maternal comfort is not that much of a challenge. I wasn't a crier cos my mother was also a working mum, but still i think it's kinda sad to see that loss of innocence in kids.
There is something I have always wondered, and maybe one of my blog visitors will be able to give me the answer. Why is it that kids born after June have to go to school the next year? It doesn't make any sense to me. Hamza told me that he read somewhere that the kids who go to school 'late' (the after June born kids), usually end up doing better, because they are better developed. Being an early-born(April), I was naturally aggrieved by this, but I don't know any way of disproving it. I offered to have kids either side of the year to guinea pig this theory, but Hamza says my survey would be flawed due to my damned superior academic genes.
Sometimes it sucks to be smart ... just kidding :).
Till next time in Waseem world
