continued from Raviv’s (Fake) First Day at School
Today when I woke up and remembered that it is Raviv’s real, official first day of school, I almost jumped out of bed and started feeling giddy again. I was almost smiling the entire time I was preparing his baon, outfit, and bag.
Even though it was Yaya Isay’s rest day, she could not help but see Raviv get ready for his first day at school. She helped Raviv’s new yaya, Yaya Pinky, dress him up.
Our other helper Alona, and even Itsy, were excited for Raviv!
Because of all these preparations, I started getting ready myself a tad late, so I was not really able to primp myself (believe me, I had not planned my outfit). Besides, this is Raviv’s day and I don’t want to steal his thunder, so I dressed simply. I opted to wear jeans because I figured I might chase after him (by the way, new students may have a companion until their second week…since I want to document his first day at school, I decided to come with him so I could watch him and take pictures).
Randy drove us to his school, and upon our arrival, toink! I realized we forgot Raviv’s bag!!! My gulay! Prepare-prepare ako then we forgot the bag! Randy had no choice but to return home and get the bag. Randy was annoyed, as he wanted to stay and watch his son even for a while, hahaha! Anyway, here are some snapshots of Raviv at school:
Anyway, before I realized it it was almost 12 (Raviv’s school hours are from 9-12), and Tatay was already at the door ready to fetch us.
I used to wonder why a child’s first day of school meant a lot to parents…I used to think ang OA naman nung mga paiyak-iyak, and why I was always told, “Hindi mo namamalayan papasok na ‘yang anak mo.” Now I get it. It lies in the magical love moms have for their children.
I was telling Randy earlier how grateful I am to God, for blessing us so much. My heart is bursting with happiness with how my family is: I have a healthy, cheerful
baby toddler boy, and I have a loving husband who is even more a loving father to his son. I am so proud of myself that I prepared Raviv’s stuff and I stayed with him on his first days (official first day and pekeng first day) of school, and that his Tatay fetched us. Wala lang, the thought that Randy and I made such a big deal out of this meant a lot to me. 🙂
As I end this post, I just wish to publicly thank God for the blessing that is my husband and
baby toddler. Dear Father, I could not thank you enough for blessing me with this family. Indeed you are faithful, loving, and kind. Again, thank you very much for all the blessings you’ve bestowed upon us. All of these would not have been possible if it weren’t for your grace. Thank you, thank you, thank you dear Lord. 🙂
Tell me what you think!
