Late sleepers

The kids are still used to sleeping late. They should have started changing their sleep pattern this week otherwise they will have difficulty waking up on time once school begins a week from now. They could listen to music on their cellphone all they want as long as their sleep will not get interrupted by the loud sound emanating from their wireless microphone headset.

They always reason out that they are big enough to know when to go to bed, but they need enough hours of sleep to get them alert in school. I just don’t know how to convince them to sleep early. Do you have any suggestions?

Opening of classes

A few hours from now, 24 million students nationwide will flock to their respective schools to mark the opening of classes this year. Welcome school year 2010 – 2011! Welcome students and teachers! Welcome new and exciting challenges!

Are you ready yet?

Have you prepared all your kids’ school supplies, uniforms and snacks? Make sure they sleep early tonight to avoid being late on the first day of school.

In my case, I can’t promise to sleep early tonight and the succeeding nights you probably know why. I still have three more weeks to stay up late…I’m looking forward to June 27!

Sign of maturity

We went to the mall the other night to buy some school supplies. While we were heading to the school supply section, the kids instantly pull their own cart and went separate directions to get the stuff that they need. They have their own initiative now unlike last year when I have to decide what design or color of notebooks they will get for themselves. My kids have matured a bit. That’s something to be proud of.

Without any pressure from them (the drama of choosy shoppers 😀 ) we were able to finish shopping in no time. When we arrived home, my son couldn’t wait to open the shopping bags to check what he got for himself. He used the box cutter instead of scissor to untie the plastic bags. Good thing the blade is no longer that sharp. My kids can do things on their own if they want to, I wish they continue to be more responsible and mature kids. 🙂
