The tiring days as a Primary 5 kid (last year) and the dreadful PSLE (this year) made me lose mood to blog.
I did not want my blog to be all sad and gloomy the whole time, so I rather not ‘talk’.
It was both an emotionally and physically tiring months…weeks…days.
My sky-falls-down-like-blanket-covering Kitkit seldom laugh out loud anymore.
But today…… yes at night, I finally see the happy Kitkit again when we went to Chinatown for a stroll.
Babbling his crow-flying-jokes and nonsensical topics …
This one is my favourite:
Kitkit used his knee to press the big round button at the traffic light.
He lost his balance and hit his knee against it instead.
Kitkit: “Ouch Ouch Ouch….” grabbing his knee
Me: “Kitkit, don’t you think its weird doing that?”
Kitkit: “Mummy did you know that people who have the least number of friends and are Weird are usually the smartest in the world?”
Me: “So are you saying you are going to continue doing weird stuff?”
Me: “Since that makes you one of the smartest in the world, why is your school results ‘like that’ leh?”
Kitkit: “So long as I don’t get a U-grade, I don’t care. Studying in school is just not my thing. Look at Einstein with that crazy stick-tongue-out facial expression and Vincent van Gogh, who cut off his own ears. They are weird. But they are so smart!”
Me: Save my breath on repeating lengthy lectures….
I know too many people that are School dropouts but are so successful in life now.
So, I am not gonna argue either.
However, with his attitude towards studies and PSLE, I can only cross my fingers and toes and arms and whatever that is cross-able….that he will get a seat in Secondary School.
Good Luck my little weird son.
