First day at formal school!

While we were getting anxious about Betu while waiting for his orientation day at the new school to get over, he was having a good time coloring and playing. He said they even sang a few rhymes. He didn't tell me which ones though.

When we went inside the class to pick him up, he was smiling and all happy. A lot of kids were crying and he said "Yeh saare bachhe kyun ro rahe hain? Main dar gaya tha." What he meant was he got a little scared seeing all the kids crying.

So I told him next time someone cries, tell them let's play and color and he nodded his head in "OK" in response.

Then hubby asked him where did he sit and he showed us the table. They had very low tables and no chairs. He also showed us this ice cream that he colored up. He went on to explain that since he likes chocolate ice creams he has colored it up brown.

He then cheerily waved bye-bye to his teacher and trotted off with us. He showed us the aquarium on the way "Papa dekho, kitne saare fish!" and then dropped the bag in Hubby's hands and walked ahead of us.

Then we introduced him to the van driver and he is happy that he will go in the van to his daycare.

So on the whole he was just fine! It couldn't have been better it seems.
