(I wanted to make a weekly post on snippets of my kids' life in a week, as some sort of souvenir.)
Migi and Meg had projects that asked them to bring clay to school. They'll be making clay models of different land forms.
We let him choose what he would want to receive as a birthday gift, a new school bag or rubber shoes. I was hoping he'd go for a rubber shoes, but he chose a new school bag. So Wednesday, we went to SM City Consolacion so he can pick his new bag. He specifically asked me that he should be the one to choose his new bag.
His choice was a confirmation that's Migi has somewhat the same taste with Mark when it comes to choosing their stuff.
His first choice was a spiderman bag. But after more looking around, he went for this more plain-looking school bag but has all the features in the world, which might take him until grade 6 to use all of them. And, best of all he can sit on it. So it's actually a chair sidelining as a bag.
And, the thing that confirmed him most that he's Mark's son is that the bag is expensive (compared to the other available bags). We agreed that it will be his bag until grade 6.
Since their clay project, they'd been asking me to get them more clays. With their everyday nagging, I just had to give in.
Last week was an exam week for them. In between studying, Migi had these doodles. There were actually more of these.
Someone had his holiday earlier. Friday, Mati went to school but only to drop his siblings. He did not like school that day.
