YX doing OT

I thought YX's school work is all about writing. I never expect there will be coloring as well. 

Bad mummy.....I only prepared his stationaries at the very last minutes. And that day when he required to do some coloring, he has got no color pencils at home. YX has got 2 boxes of color pencils but are all kept in my office due to this incidents last year. 

This forced him to work OT...........


YX doing some coloring. XJ wanted to join in the 'fun'.
Coincidentally that day, we came back late. Around 7pm. After we took our dinner and bath, I quickly get YX into the room to complete his homework. By the time he finished everything, it was already nearly 9pm.

XJ took YX's eraser and 'rub' on Patrick's tail !!  
Glad that XJ did not disturb YX even she insisted to sit beside her brother.

Glad that YX obediently completed his homework without me needing to show the 'magic wand'.

After that night, I quickly prepared a mini bag completed with a pencil case, pencils, erasers, ruler and a box of color pencils. Did I miss out anything else ?  Oh yes....a sharpener right? We have yet to buy a good one. Currently, he is using those small and round shaped with a mirror on the other side.

  1. This was not considered late already. My daughter was in afternoon class, after school has tuition, back from tuition at 10pm, then only start doing homework. So, can you imagine what time she finishes her school homework and goes to bed? This is the tough primary school life.

  6. Does YX get paid for doing OT? Hehehe..

    I don't send Ian for tuition. He does his homework from 8pm after shower, eat and short rest. Depending on his amount of homework for the day, it carries on till 10pm, sometimes 11pm.

    The next morning will be revision time from 9.30am to 11am before going to school. Sounds tough, huh.. but once you get into the routine everything will fall into place.. What a life.. *sigh*

  8. I got a big table sharpener at home and only allow my girl to have the small sharpener to school. I've warned her earlier - do not sharp both side of her pencil like Vickylow mentioned, because during her 1st week of nursery, she came home with pencils all both side sharpened *slap forehead*

    My girl finishes her homework around that time too... She has all afternoon playing at sitter's house before I pick her home.... How I wish I'm a SAHM and get to involve in my kids' activities full time.

  11. Come to think of it, you just reminded me about something... I never have to worry about Chloe's stationaries. Her kindy provides everything from pencil boxes (and its contents) to colour pencils and each child will have a compartment where all their stuffs are kept. They don't bring home anything, not even homework so C's school bag only contains one thing... her water tumbler.

  18. wow, still got that type of small sharpener with mirror! i think last time, i liked those big sharpener whereby you just turn the handle to sharpen the pencil. but hard to bring to school.

  19. Gwen's preschool gave me a note last week to inform the parents that the children should bring their own pencil case to school. This is to teach them to be responsible and take care of their own things.

    YX has homework everyday? Gwen only bring home homework from school on Fridays.
