During the previous book fair, we bought a big box of erasers, a few boxes of 2B pencils and some other stationary which the kids need to use. Since XJ's kindy provided writing materials, she only need to use her own set of stationary while doing homework at home.
As for YX, he will need a set of complete stationary to bring to his primary school. Every time, he will comes back with missing 'something'. Today, will be ruler, and tomorrow will be a brand new 2B pencils. His erasers will never be in his possession for more than a week. I need to replace his stationary very often and everytime, he will hear me nagging.
Just the other day, I gave him a brand new eraser. When I got back
home after work, I sarcastically asked him if his eraser is already
missing. He proudly showed me his pencil box with the eraser inside. I
A few more days later, he came and told me his eraser went missing !
Not only about missing stationary, he loves to poke his eraser with his pencil and sometime, a big piece of eraser will be cut into half. This made me thought of my childhood. My brother and I did that too ! haha and I really wonder, why was it so fun to do that ? Besides than eraser, he loves to sharpen his pencil both ends. The head and tail will be sharpen and shy to say, I did that during my primary years too ! haha
XJ was being influenced by her brother and she too sharped her pencils both ends. Her eraser is always missing too ! No matter how many times I warned them and scolded them, they still come back with missing 'something', especially erasers.
