His preschool, besides being a kindergarten, they also catered for children with special needs. They even encouraged kids to participate in their Kidz' Club where they become play buddies for the special needs children. I have talked to my boy on a few occasions about being a play buddy for these children and he is quite apprehensive at first. And I brought up the subject again yesterday, he surprised me with an affirmative, "Yes". Needless to say, I made up a story about the panda who become a play buddy to a special needs kid enjoying a great time together. Hence, he had an extra hour of playtime with his special friend after school today. All went well according to the teacher. Guess, he would be looking forward to it next week ;)
This week is full of surprises for my little rascal. He got his long overdue storybook titled Hot Hippo which he always looked for it every time we visited NLB. But it was never available at the Tampines branch. Not to disappoint him, I paid $1.50 to reserve it. And he sighted real tadpoles for the first time which I have collected from one of the Mom Bloggers, Selena whom still has hundreds to give away. On top of it, he had a wonderful time with his new-found special friends. The joy and happiness I see in my boy is priceless. Me -- a Happy Mom definitely!!
